Nick Sample Recordings

Songwriter/ Bassist/ Producer

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

As a supplement to recording a record in this day and age...I have chosen a new virtual route as one medium for my body of work.  These recordings are scaled down performances of me Solo as well as with Friends.  I hope you enjoy the new music as I have been.

By no means can anything I do be perfect...But with passion comes authenticity...These are my current, present songs I have written by video...I hope you enjoy...

Saw You There

Co-wrote this song with my friend Mark McLean.  The unsung words to that girl I should have said something to...Lost the moment and she is gone...

Rain/ Sorrow

This song means so much to me in regards to how I envision the production...But also in how important certain social issues are in today's world...This is Video # 1 , my 2nd take...Trying to stay transparent..

Peace & Word
