Sam started playing guitar at 16, and shortly after graduating high school he joined a band, playing shows at local bars and coffee shops.

In 2010, Sam joined the Earthwork Music Collective, a group of musicians working together to build community and self-awareness through the art of music in the state of Michigan and beyond.

An evening w/Greg Nagy (guitar & vocals)

Greg Nagy-guitar & vocals, Nick Calandro-bass & John Hill-drums

Real nice review in the iconic Vintage Guitar Magazine…

"B l u e s rocker Greg Nagy makes the Northern industrial equivalent to Southern country of the 1950s and ’60s. He melds ’70s West Coast R&B, Brit- ish blues rock, Albert King tones, dollops of Steely Dan, the Rascals and Elvin Bishop, and the unhurried approach of a player justifiably confident in his material.

Always a tastefully impressive guitarist, he continues to grow as a songwriter and singer, proving himself immediately in “Stranded,” a soul-blues tune that leads into “Walk Out The Door.” The two are among the best examples of Nagy’s strongly rooted style.

He also continues to grow as a producer and record-maker, al- ways keeping the big picture in mind. Whether it’s knowing when to step aside for co-producer Jim Alfredson’s keyboards in “Still Doing Fine” and the moving ballad “Run Away With You,” or adding short, telling licks to “Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City” and the “Voodoo Chile”-inspired “Long Way To Memphis.”

Nagy the guitar player works in service to the song. And with Alfredson, Nagy the producer makes sure the songs work in service to this excellently realized album." – Rick Allen
