Mr Sam Lookin' 4 Love

Mr Sam Lookin' 4 Love Snippets

I had missed out on Mr Sam until I read an interview with him over on Soul Treasures.

Here is his blurb from CD Baby:

Writer, Vocalist and Producer. Who is “Mr. Sam”? “Mr. Sam” born Sam Fallie in Memphis, TN is a 4 time nominee and the Winner of the 2007 Blues Critic & Southern Soul R&B “Best New Male Artist” Award. “Mr. Sam’s” family moved to LA while he was a small child, but relocated back to Memphis when he was 10. While living in LA, “Mr. Sam” discovered a love for music.
From this discovery “Mr. Sam” joined his High School Choir and there he gained notoriety for his talent. After completing High School “Mr. Sam” formed several groups (Mellow Mystics, Naked Truth Band and Perfectionist) but all were short lived. Even though the groups were short lived something good did come out for “Mr. Sam” while performing with the group “Perfectionist”. The Legendary Great Late Allen Jones, Producer and Manager for the infamous “Bar-Kays” asked “Mr. Sam” to come aboard as a Staff Writer and he has been on his way every since.
“Mr. Sam’s” writing abilities have been compared to such greats as “Homer Banks” and “Lionel Richie” and you will soon learn why. “Mr. Sam” has written several hits for the “Bar-Kays” such as: “What Goes In Da Club Stays In Da Club” featuring “George Clinton”, “Holla If You Like That”, “My Everythang” and “Lets Git Bizzy”, “J. Blackfoot”: “It Ain’t Over”, “I’m Just A Fool” featuring “Lenny Williams” and the remake with “Sir Charles Jones” (Winner of the 2007 Blues Critic Best Performance by a Duo or Group Award), “Archie Love”: “Should Have Been There For You” and “Same Woman” featuring “J. Blackfoot”, “Theodis Ealey”: “Move With The Motion” and “Pop That Middle” (Runner Up of the 2007 Best Dance Song Award), “Jerry L”.: “Girls In The Hood” and “Daily Love”, 7 songs on “Kenne Wayne” upcoming album, “Mr. Sam” also wrote “You Gon Make Me” and “Heartache” which won Southern Soul Artist “Lacee” (Best Female Artist of the Year 2006).
Now “Mr. Sam” is “Looking 4 Love” the title cut from his own debut album (nominated Album of the Year 2007 Blues Critic Award placing #6, Placing in the TOP 5 Albums of the Year in the JEFFERSON BLUES MAGAZINE[Scandinavian Blues Magazine]) released on “MíLaĴa Records”. Other hits from his debut album are: “I’m Comin’ Home” (Reaching in the TOP 10 UK) and “12 Steps for Cheaters” (Reaching in the TOP 20) that’s who “Mr. Sam” is.
