The Sam Willows join Shure Artist Family!
The Sam Willows have joined the family of Shure Artists. Formed in mid-2012, the band is made up of siblings Benjamin and Narelle Kheng and their friends Sandra Riley Tang and Jon Chua.
Leading Singapore broadsheet, The Straits Times, described their rise to fame as meteoric: Their self-titled debut EP was released to great acclaim in October 2012. They have also gone away on a North American Tour that included international music festivals South by Southwest in Austin, TX, and Canadian Music Week in Toronto, ON; won a week of studio time with 5-time Grammy award winning producer Steve Lillywhite, CBE, courtesy of The Music Society, Singapore; and were invited to play at three other international music festivals, Digital and Music Matters in Singapore (May 2013), as well as MU:CON and Zandari Festa in Seoul, South Korea (October 2013) and the Western Australian Music Festival (WAM 2013) in Perth, Australia.
