Good Rocking Sam​​

Good Rocking Sam has been writing and performing blues and rhythm and blues music for the better part of 20 years. This is original Blues and Roots music with heart and soul.

GRS is out of Durham, NC, and we are proud to call this city, the center of the Piedmont Blues, our home. Think of Stax/Volt and all the great Memphis Blues tinged with the great blues from the West Side of Chicago, that's where we come from!
We are proud to announce that our new album, " Bllu Dur'm" is available! This is a solid set of original blues and roots songs inspired by our trip to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge, as well as the renaissance of our own home town, Durham, NC. As far as we are concerned it's the center of blues in NC! Check out " Poppin' and Crackin'" and " Memphis" (our ode to our time on Beale).
" Other Side of Time" was our previous release, and we still lean hard on some of these tunes in our recent shows, many have changed shape and grown since the recording, but they are wearing well. Tunes such as the title track, and the tune " Black Coffee" still move us.

" Luxury Life" was the first GRS album, and many set staples, such as " Luella" and " Taking Out the Trash" are still crowd favorites.
