Sam Roberts on being unknown in the States, the Canadian scene, & record labels | Tour Dates

DOWNLOAD:The Gate” (MP3)

Sam RobertsSam Roberts (& band) opened for the Stills two nights in a row at Mercury Lounge in April. I went the second night, but missed Sam despite the good reviews that almost motiviated me to get there on time. My only glimpse came when Sam joined the Stills on stage for a song. A few days ago Same came back to headline his own show in the same small room.

In comments, in coversations, and in articles, everyone always said the same thing. Sam is “huge in Canada”. Sam says….

“It’s nice to be able to live two realities,” Roberts said of the dichotomy of being huge stars in Canada and virtual unknowns in the U.S. “To have fans of one variety [in Canada] and then come down and we’re the underdogs … in the U.S., it really is a clean slate for us down there. We get to carve a future for ourselves.”

MTV’s got an interesting interview.

Sam is touring with Slow Runner in June. He’ll be at Maxwell’s in Hoboken on June 12th. Extrawack has those dates.
