He has collaborated with numerous choirs, including the BBC Singers as part of the Hull City of Culture – a performance which was recorded by BBC Radio 3. Sam’s interest in promoting new music has led to a significant contribution to the repertoire for solo saxophone and choir. To date, he has commissioned and premiered over thirty new works for this genre. His debut album, Drop Down, Ye Heavens, was released by Delphian Records in 2016. This was a collaboration with the acclaimed vocal group, Siglo de Oro, and reached a national audience on BBC Radio 3. The album received plaudits from critics and was described as “vividly executed” (BBC Music Magazine) and “so invigorating” (Gramophone Magazine). Sam’s second album, Palimpsest, was released by Signum Records in September 2023 and was a collaboration with Canterbury Cathedral Choir. The album was the culmination of a landmark project to re-imagine new works from old for saxophone, choir and organ. Fifteen pieces were specially commissioned by leading composers including Gabriel Jackson, Errollyn Wallen and Roderick Williams. Sam studied for a Master’s and later an Artist Fellowship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He leads a busy and multifaceted career, and when not playing the saxophone can be found singing in professional choirs, and teaching within universities and schools. He currently works within the faculty of music at Canterbury Christ Church University and is Head of Woodwind at Charterhouse School, Surrey. Sam has contributed to several publications related to saxophone pedagogy, including books published by Music Sales Ltd. and Rhinegold Education. Recently, he has been working with the London College of Music to develop their new saxophone syllabus. As a singer, Sam is regularly engaged as a concertising and ecclesiastical choral tenor, singing with professional chamber choirs that include Blossom Street, Convivium Singers, and with cathedral choirs from across the country.

Åslund - Valse Romantique What's this podcast about? Well it started out of sheer curiosity. What is it like for a performer to be at the top of their game? Do the guests have any particular wisdom to share with student musicians? I’m also fascinated by the world of creative entrepreneurship and enjoy seeing individual freelancers becoming owners of their own flourishing businesses…. Would you help me?
