Tudor’s 2014 album “The Modern New Year” got tucked into the airwaves of campus radio stations across the country, quietly earning him the beginnings of a cult following for his lo-fi pop music. Soon after, Sam began playing with his now distinctive live band, featuring Tegan Wahlgren, Jasper Wrinch and Harry Tudor. Together they create warm, psychedelia tinged anthems. Their new album Quotidian Dream was the bands first real unified statement, fully displaying Sam’s poignant songwriting and the bands compelling experimental leanings. It felt like something new. The Georgia Straight calls it “a gem… with a penchant for everything left field” while Beatroute Magazine describes it as “beautifully self aware, sonically interesting, and masterful”. The live show is poignant and communal, gentle and bombastic. Sam was nominated for ‘Songwriter of the Year’ in the Western Canadian Music Awards.
