It’s strange how sometimes after years of being on the move, it’s only when you finally find a home that the real journey can begin. When Sam Chalcraft arrived in the ‘big city’ of Vienna in late 2016, guitar slung across his shoulders like a modern-day, millennial Dick Whittington, he threw himself into Vienna’s thriving Singer-Songwriter and Punk scenes and embraced any and every possible stage. From the street corner to the coffee shop, metro stations to squats, smokey bars to cosy living rooms and beyond, for three years Sam’s contagiously catchy songs, and disarming honesty have rung out to the ears of Vienna and further since to some of the continent’s biggest stages (Nova Rock, Punk Rock Holiday, Bay Fest, and Mighty Sounds, to name but a few).
Having been raised upon a heady mix of Punk Rock and Ska music from an early age, one particular band to stand out for the rosy-cheeked nine-year-old Sam was Lagwagon. Furthermore, the label One Week Records, begun by songwriter Joey Cape, produced what were hugely defining records for Sam and cooked up a dream to one-day release music under that label. Years later, after Joey and himself became firm friends following the OWR Competition, they hatched a plan to produce Sam’s debut LP in an intensely creative week in L.A. Not a bad result for that nine-year-old Punk Rock bumpkin turned street musician from the seaside.
My music deals mostly with the themes of self-discovery and finding a place of belonging.
The drive and topic of my art is the subjective reappropiation of my identity as an indigenous and colonized person, as well as the wonder of life. My intention is to inspire others of the same cultural disposition to stand up and be proud of who they are.
