Nick Sample Recordings

Songwriter/ Bassist/ Producer

Home of Nick Sample - Songwriter/ Bassist. Son of legendary pianist Joe Sample.  

The Reason

My intention is to make music that inspires me from all aspects of my life - past and present.  Some moments have been young and dumb, and others have been profound and sincere.  In some weird way, this is the reason I consider myself a Soulful-Rockin M'fr...

I am fortunate to have a mother and father that offered me two different cultures, of which both are rich, vibrant and admired throughout the world.

Thank you for YOUR TIME.
