"SAM V has a mature vocal confidence and powerhouse control, never
mind he's still only 18yrs old".
Sam V (Verlinden) hails from New Zealand - he's a combo of NZ Kiwi, Dutch & Cook Island (Rarotongan) descent. His vocal style and genre is a soulful blended mix of RnB, Soul, Pop with a bit of Motown, and then there's the Jazz.
Early influences include young Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Ne-Yo, R Kelly, Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles and Crooners Sinatra & Buble.
In February 2016 Sam released "I JUST WANNA LOVE U" along with the slick Music Video - featuring award winning Global Choregrapher Parris Goebel
and her amazing dance crew ReQuest. Sam was very lucky to be selected
by the ANZ Bank to front their "Fortune Favours the Brave Campaign".
Sam started University in 2016 where he is studying Comms and Law.
In between his studies and sport, he continues to songwrite new material
with a handful of young upcoming producers, both in NZ and abroad.
He is also working on building his Jazz Repertoire to enable him to tour the NZ Vineyards or further afield to take the opportunity to perform a soulful blend of Sinatra, Buble and Bobby Darrin.
Sam, the Vanilla Cookie (a playful take on his Rarotongan Cook Island ancestory). Still making this stuff look easy.
