What The Sound Presents: Sam MacPherson with Chance Peña
September 16 9:30 pm PDT
Doors Open: 9:00pm$10
Hailing from Red Bank, New Jersey, Sam is an LA based singer-songwriter and musician whose writing is as honest as it is clever. With delicate melodies and a soulful delivery, Sam writes with a relentless attention to detail. Growing up in a musical household, Sam was constantly exposed to the sounds of his father’s and grandparents’ generations, such as The Beatles & Stevie Wonder. With a rustic sound that was stemmed by his childhood, Sam’s originality strives to go left when others proceed right. Providing his listeners with the comfort to relate is what drives his authentic and passionate writing behind every one of his songs. 2021 can expect various releases from MacPherson, including his debut EP along with an opening performance for Liam Payne’s virtual concert.
Born and raised in Tyler, Texas, Chance Peña is a 21 year old singer/songwriter and producer. Making music from an early age, he has cultivated a unique style of traditional storytelling infused with modern musical influences. He began working with Secret Road Music Publishing as a songwriter at just 17 years old and saw immediate success. Peña continues to cultivate his artistry by writing, producing, engineering and performing his own songs.
In early 2019, Peña’s dream-chaser ballad, “Up, Up & Away” moved into the spotlight thanks to a placement in the highly acclaimed heartfelt drama, Five Feet Apart. Later that year, Chance released his debut EP, “anxiety & mixed emotions” on September 27th, 2019 which chronicled the personal trials and events that transpired over the course of his waning time in his home town of Tyler, Texas as he prepped for a move to Los Angeles the following year. Entering 2020, Peña secured his first major label cut and later his first Grammy nod with John Legend’s “Conversations in the Dark”, the lead single off his Grammy winning album, “Bigger Love”, having co-written the song several months prior. He has since released an EP titled “The Inevitable” pandering at the idea of life’s inevitabilities, and several singles with friends and collaborators while writing and producing for other artists and projects.
