About me

"Pop/Rock songs in an acoustic style"

Hi, my name is Sam Dawson. I’m a professional wedding singer and acoustic guitarist based in East Yorkshire.

My musical style is acoustic covers of pop songs, anywhere from the 50s through to present day. Using just guitar, vocals, and the addition of some effects pedals, I am able to create a full sound – as though there are multiple musicians performing (without the huge setup and increased cost!) This also allows me to ‘read the room’ – stripping things back, or livening things up when necessary.

I am more than happy to accomodate any special requests you may have for specfic songs or genres. Just let me know what kind of vibe you’re after and I will tailor the set accordingly!

I recently booked Sam to play on my wedding day. As everyone sat in the sunshine listening, he created the perfect atmosphere. Not only did he play 2 sets – early and late afternoon (so sorry Sam!) he also learnt a song of my choosing to play me down the aisle which he played/sang AMAZINGLY! I can’t thank Sam enough, he is such a lovely person, I wish I had more time to chat to him on the day! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Sam recently played for us during our reception drinks at our Wedding at Rise Hall and was absolutely fantastic. He played a real mix of material appropriate for all guests and created a fabulous atmosphere and enetertained guests during our photos. He was a pleasure to speak with and I was able to leave him to organise his own set up etc and was able to simply arrive and hear him on the day which was a blessing in itself and one less thing to worry about. Highly recommended
