Great Big World

by Scott Samuels

Samuels is a rock and roll survivor in this great big world with lots of stories to tell. In this first solo outing, he recounts some of the very best. Ironic and at times, sardonic power pop, in Samuels' trademark down-to-earth style.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Scott Samuels is a rock and roll survivor with lots of stories to tell. An imaginative singer-songwriter who, according to powerpopaholic.com, “plays a mean axe”, he learned a thing or two about survival and tenacity from his neighbors, having grown up in Skokie, IL – a suburb of Chicago best known for having the largest population of holocaust survivors in the nation. Samuels began his rock and roll journey at eight years old, along with his brother and cousin, banging away on toy guitars and drums to the Monkees – an inauspicious start, but hey, everyone needs that first inspiration. Throughout his life, Samuels’ love for rock and roll’s “hidden treasure”, and his unique ability to recount the quirkiest milestones of life, love and career, has fueled his songwriting and performances. As San Diego’s SLAMM Magazine once said, he definitely “knows his way around a pop hook” – and back again.

A veteran front man of several bands over the years, including power pop legends Roxy Monoxide, he's shared stages from San Diego to New Orleans to Chicago with The Fixx, Bow Wow Wow, and Steve Wynn and The Miracle Three, among others. Samuels is now mining the rich history of his musical and personal past and present with the release of his first full-length solo CD, “Great Big World.” Samuels hits the road on a solo acoustic tour of the Midwest and the Pacific coast to coincide with the CD’s release in March 2013. An ambitious first solo outing, the CD includes eight of Samuels’ original songs and two covers of tunes that resonate with him in a big way – The Plimsouls’ “Great Big World” and Errol Brown’s (Hot Chocolate) “It Started with a Kiss.” A songwriter extraordinaire, Samuels seemingly remembers every detail of his life – a boon for those of us that appreciate vivid storytelling.
