Sam Weber, the Los Angeles via Vancouver Island based singer-songwriter and guitarist is continuing to share glimpses of his soon-to-be released record, Clear + Plain (August 23rd), with the warm and observational “Oregon.”

Grounded by a strong bassline, Weber builds layers of vocals, lush percussion, and exploratory acoustic guitar into the track as it develops.

“‘Oregon’ was written on a trip to Ashland. We were renting a casita on this big property where all these hippies lived. It’s a bit of a sensory abstract poem that just sort of emerged. 

I think the imagery is my own from the I-5 corridor, seeing the lush green flora, very pagan-beautiful, natural imagery of the state, contrasted with the scraps of humanity strewn around. And the progressive culture of Portland.” Sam Weber

Sam Weber is a Canadian singer-songwriter known for his distinctive style that blends elements of folk, rock, and Americana. Weber’s music often features thoughtful lyrics and a blend of contemporary and traditional musical influences, making him a unique figure in the indie music scene. 

A perceptive and compelling singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in the vein of Jackson Browne, The Band, The Wood Brothers and Gillian Welch, Weber has been touring independently and internationally with his band since 2013 — just after he scored a glowing profile in Guitar Player Magazine. 

Years spent refining songs at home in North Saanich, BC, working in studios in Los Angeles, CA and gigging relentlessly across Canada and throughout the Western US have honed Weber’s craft to a fine point.
