Sam is best known as one half of Portland Indie duo Quasi (the other half being Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney). Sam was also the bass player for 90's Portland grunge band Heatmiser, fronted by the late great Elliott Smith, along with having guest musician stints for Indie legends Built To Spill and The Go-Betweens.
Sam's solo output has been described as “Suicide meets The Beach Boys", fusing classic organ and raw synthesiser sounds with distortion and fuzz, yet still maintaining Sam's knack for writing a catchy pop hook. After eight albums with Quasi, he finally released his debut solo album in 2016, called 'Bugger Me', on Domino Records.
