Samuel Proffitt

Samuel Proffitt grew up in Houston, TX, entrenched in a mix of screamo, punk, indie, folk, and jazz; however, his own music stems from personal writings, poetry, and interest in philosophy, taking the time to learn chords on his guitar in order to express his thoughts in a more sonorous form. He is currently in the 3rd year of his PhD at Brown University. Today he continues to challenge genres and musical boundaries and confronts the audience with an acute, weighty deluge of tones and sonic layers allowing a momentary entry into his world, in which the listener is encouraged to question, like the artist himself, what it means to be human.  Samuel has been featured in The Fader, Vice, Rolling Stone, Noisey, KCRW, Paste and on Spotify’s Top 50 Viral Songs in the U.S. and Best of Fresh Finds.
