Some would say winning the 2020 Toyota Star Maker could be compared to winning lotto, and Sammy White was the 41st winner in 2020. Even though the world was shutting down, Sammy ‘turned lemons into lemonade’ remaining positive and focused, continuing to write songs and connect with fans online.
Raised on the land but located on the Reef; armed with a cuppa and pen, born quiet and sweet, Sammy White is the perfect walking contradiction. Sammy found her feet on stage and lays it on the line with her honest, all-in approach to songwriting. Sammy’s Star Maker album Undone, released in November 2020, has seen the release of the singles Drowning My Sorrows, I Can’t Outrun You, Lay It On Me and Home (Feels Like You). As an “emotionally fuelled” writer, who draws inspiration from life experiences, Undone is a listening diary 24 months in the making, with a team spread across two countries. Undone is a straight-up, hard truths album that perfectly captures those years, now frozen in time.
White has played Tamworth Country Music Festival, Gympie Music Muster, Lifting The Outback and opened shows for Aussie artists including Brad Cox, Adam Eckersley & Brooke McClymont, Catherine Britt, Gretta Ziller and Andrew Swift.
