writer and performer" Colin Blunstone of

gifted singer and instrumentalist (guitar,

fantastic songwriter with a uniquely soulful
voice. I'm actually quite jealous." Jamie

music scholarship at Hampton School and then

his sixth form, where he went on to study jazz
piano under Roger Munns.
As a student at
Cambridge University, he founded, conducted and
managed Selwyn Jazz, an 18-piece swing band as
well as The Lovehandles - a high energy Rhythm &
Blues 9-piece band playing fantastic covers to
the bopping student masses.

physics teacher by day, also conducting the
Magdalen College School Big Band. By night, he
gigged with various jazz and soul ensembles,
both as a wedding pianist-vocalist and as a
'front man' wedding entertainer.

Video Of Sam - UK Finalist of World
One of Olly's
first original compositions, which appears on
his album 'Just Friends'.
Sam performing Stone In My Shoe Live (Using
Loop Station To Build Up The Track)
In 2004, he handed in his
notice for his day job and went pro, playing
frequently with the Oxford Jazz Quintet (one of
Jamie Cullum's previous ensembles).
now runs his
Jazz Soul Boogie Band - one of the
top wedding entertainment bands on the
professional gig circuit in the UK.
All parts here are
performed live. The looping kit enables
a solo performer to create a fuller sound. A
good performance requires skilful co-ordination
and anticipation to control the equipment using
pedals. Sam records and retrieves sections
played earlier with precision timing, while
still performing the new parts and building the
layers. At the end of this video, he is
harmonising with 4 or 5 layers of his voice and
ad-libbing over the top, accompanied by layers
of instrumentation and rhythm.
