Sam Clague is a musician and songwriter from Clonakilty, Cork. He lives and works in Cork City, playing primarily as a jazz guitarist and also his own unique brand of original music. Jazz and folk influences blend together to make a form of kaleidoscopic chamber music, driven by intricate guitar arrangements and accompanied by psychedelic orchestral sounds.
This is a double treat of Sam Clague's two brilliant EPs 'Good Morning' and 'Balloons'. 'Good morning' was released in 2018 at a sold out gig in Cork while 'Balloons' was released in 2015 at the Clonakilty Guitar Festival. This is on vinyl with beautiful artwork on the album cover-definitely one to keep.
His debut EP “Balloons” was released in 2015 at the Clonakillty Guitar Festival. A follow up E.P. "good morning" was released in Caughlans, Cork, to a sold out audiance in novenber 2018.
"Sam’s writing is unique. He writes from the heart and creates his own world – his own sound world and lyric world. As well as that his musicianship is beyond reproach – capable of capturing many genres with multi instrumental abilities" - Carl Corcoran (former Presenter of The Blue of the Night)
