Sam Maddison - Following the music

Sam Maddison - Following the music

Posted on 20 Apr 2017 by Our Fraser Coast

Sam Maddison was raised in the northwest of Western Australia where the red dirt and spinifex harden the landscapes but soften hearts. Her love for music was evident from a very early age - singing and performing came naturally in the school choir and high school band.

Flash forward to now, Sam lives on the Fraser Coast with her three sons and immerses herself in her childhood passion as a full time solo performer. 
From small intimate crowds to large audiences she has the ability to capture the listener, filling the stage with her unique style of blended country and folk.

As Sam broadens her horizons to include music festivals, her philosophy of ‘following the music to wherever it may lead’ seems to be working out in  her favour.

“I feel extremely fortunate to be able to live and work on the Fraser Coast. It is a true gift to have the opportunity to pursue my passions and dreams of being a full time musician, and support my family,  plus be able to enjoy a wonderful lifestyle in a  beautiful region.”
