Sam Burchfield is a southern folk / soul artist out of Atlanta, GA. After cutting his teeth in the indie-music hub of Athens, GA, Sam planted new roots in the nation’s R&B capital of Atlanta. Sam has now made ripples in the Southeast and continues to grow a loyal fan base nationwide. Lyrical depth, a soulful vocal delivery, and catchy melodies drive home the message. Sam's latest EP, "Unarmored," digs a few layers deeper into a genre-crossing career that has only just begun. From folk, to funk, to Southern soul —Sam and his band of 'Scoundrels' capture it all. Says Emily McBride of Vinyl Mag: "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."
