Sam Birchfield – Residency
June 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains of South Carolina, Sam Burchfield was brought up on Appalachian music: folk, gospel, country and southern soul. The young songwriter draws on these roots with a deep lyrical honesty that carries the tradition of folk music forward. Burchfield’s last album, ‘Graveyard Flower’, seeks to reconnect to the Appalachian roots that raised him. In a world of cell phones and internet distractions, this body of work beckons the listener to plant their feet firmly in the soil. Reconnect to the land, reconnect to each other; ‘Graveyard Flower’ is honest music. Since his first EP ‘Where to Run’ in 2014, Burchfield has grown a loyal following along the east coast through steady touring both solo and with his band of ‘Scoundrels’. He’s also grown an active base of over 200k monthly Spotify listeners across the world, earning millions of plays for several of his top tracks, with three records and several singles released.
“…Burchfield’s music is soulful. That is the perfect word for it. It doesn’t just describe his genre – it describes the heart of the artist himself…”
-Emily McBride – VINYL MAG
