Hi, my name is Sam Dawson. I’m an East Yorkshire based vocalist and guitarist providing entertainment for pubs, clubs, weddings and parties, with a professional attitude and a passion for music. I have had many years of performing experience, which has led me to playing some of the biggest events in the region – Freedom Festival, Humber Street Sesh, Galtres Festival (alongside The Stranglers, Maximo Park, Reef) to name a few.
I am largely self taught as a vocalist, but my guitar playing was closely mentored by Richard Silvester, an excellent teacher based in Hull. Since taking lessons, I have studied Professional Music Performance at The ACM in Guildford, graduating with a First Class Honors Degree. My passion for music has led me to where I am now, and I am very grateful for that.
A sample of my set list can be seen below, which contains songs from the 60s right through to modern day classics. For most songs, I make use of some effects pedals to layer different parts and get a ‘fuller’ sound. Not only does this create a more dynamic performance, it also allows me to ‘read the room’ – livening things up or stripping things back when necessary. Combined with a large repertoire, this makes for a unique performance each night which is tailored to the audience and venue.
Everything you hear on this site is an accurate representation of what to expect when I perform live – nothing has been ‘souped-up’ via production wizardry.

Years of performing has led me to acquiring a large repertoire, which is unfortunately too big to write here! You can expect to hear classics from the 60s, right through to modern day, including The Beatles, Oasis, Stevie Wonder, Ed Sheeran and many more.
If you have any special requests for your event, please let me know and I will be more than happy to accommodate! Similarly, if you require an example setlist, get in touch using the form at the bottom of this page.
