Sam Wedgwood is a true multi-talent.
only a gifted singer and instrumentalist (guitar, piano,
trumpet....you name it) but also a fantastic songwriter with a
uniquely soulful voice. I'm actually quite jealous.
Sam has revolutionised the idea of solo
gigging; one guy, completely live, a full band sound... and a
whole lot cheaper

Everyone was up and dancing as soon
as Sam started his set Ė awesome!
Sam performs as a guitarist /
singer, looper, trumpeter and pianist at weddings, private
parties, corporate functions and public venues throughout the
Sunshine Coast and Brisbane, Australia.
Originally a classically trained trumpeter, Sam won a
trumpet scholarship to the Royal Academy in London, but later
became more pop based. Previously, as the multi-instrumentalist
in Jamie Cullumís band, he toured extensively and played in
top venues throughout the globe.
Sam is in extremely high demand as a functions performer
because the show he puts on is, in many respects,
exceptional. I have never seen another artist get so many people
on the dance floor at a wedding in such a short amount of
time. Heís modern, heís original and he cuts out the need for a
four piece band.
Watching him build his
performance with his RC-50 loop station is absolutely fascinating Ė the sound is
great, but itís visually stimulating as well, because youíre
watching an artist at work, performing incredibly complex
musical and technical sets. Sam invariably becomes a genuine
talking point after he has performed; come and watch him at one
of his public gigs and see for yourself.

(Some parts which may sound like a backing track, were
performed live by him minutes or seconds earlier and looped back, while he
adds vocals and other layers to the 'full band' sound.) For more
