“(Cycle) rocks and rolls, summons the holy ghost and allows Tru space to get down. Let the congregation say, ‘Amen’!” - Downbeat Magazine Idaho raised and Pacific Northwest based singer songwriter Sam Tru has a compelling style all her own. Blending sounds, breaking rules and crossing genres, Tru possesses a voice that is at the same time both new and familiar. Drawing on influences in jazz, soul, Pop and R&B, her incredible vocal talents have been showcased throughout the West at the Festival at Sandpoint, the PDX Jazz Festival, the Monterey Jazz 'Next Generation Competition', the KIN Summer Concert Series, and in support of artists like Liz Vice, Miles Forte, Biddadat and others. Sam’s debut album ‘Cycle' featuring Grammy Winning bassist Clark Sommers, pianist Justin Nielsen, guitarist Gregory Uhlmann and drummer Matt Carroll reached #1 on Amazon’s Top 100 New Releases, and was played on over 200 radio stations across the globe. The impact of the release culminated as ‘Cycle’ made the Nominating Ballot for the 2021 GRAMMY Awards in multiple categories including Album of the Year, Best New Artist and Song of the Year.
