Singer-songwriter-storyteller-indie rocker Sam Shaber grew up in New York City. As a singer-songwriter, she’s toured over 200,000 miles and released 12 independent albums, initially as a solo folkie, and more recently fully plugged-in with her band The Happy Problem. She’s also written, produced and performed with Brazilian rock-reggae band The Good People of Planet Earth, Brooklyn dance-rock trio The Bashful, and New Jersey hip-hop group The Org.
As a storyteller, Sam performs true stories of her life, love, loss, family, dogs, obsessions, embarrassments, regrets, victories big and small, and what she learned about marriage when going to see "Hamilton: The Musical." She's a Moth slam winner and Mainstage performer, and has performed in and co-hosted storytelling events across LA and New York. Her multimedia, musical storytelling show Sam Shaber: Life, Death & Duran Duran premiered at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it earned 5-star reviews and Pick of the Fringe, and had its US debut at the 2018 Hollywood Fringe, winning Pick of the Fringe, Critics’ Choice, and a Hollywood Producers’ Encore Award. Sam is currently working on a book adaptation of the show, a podcast and a possible scripted series for BBC3.
