Raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains of South Carolina, Sam Burchfield was brought up on Appalachian music: folk, gospel, country and southern soul. The young songwriter draws on these roots with a deep lyrical honesty and carries the tradition of folk music forward.
Burchfield’s upcoming EP, ‘Graveyard Flower’, seeks to reconnect to the Appalachian roots that raised him. In a world of cell phones and internet distractions, this body of work beckons the listener to plant their feet firmly in the soil. Reconnect to the land, reconnect to each other; ‘Graveyard Flower’ is honest music.
Sam Burchfield and his band of ‘Scoundrels’ have opened for wide range of talent, from St. Paul & The Broken Bones to CAAMP and Ben Rector. Whether a raucous full band performance or an intimate acoustic performance Burchfield’s lyrical depth and pure vocals bring to life beautifully crafted songs. After turning down multiple contracts, the up and coming folk singer has continued to release music independently and has grown over 150k monthly listeners on Spotify as well as millions of listens.
