Inspired by delta blues and southern gospel, Sam Turton has delivered heartfelt vocals and ringing slide guitar to stages and studios for over forty years. As a musician, singer, writer, arranger, and producer, the common element in Sam's compositions, performances, productions, and workshops is uniting people in song. His anthem to personal and community connection, “Right Here,” is shared and sung by many groups across the world and is included in “Rise Again,” the much anticipated follow-up to “Rise Up Singing,” the world-renowned group singing songbook.
Based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, Sam is a community activist of the localist lifestyle, which influences him to limit the radius of his musical activities for personal and ecological benefit. He is also a psychotherapist of deep-feeling emotional integration, which opens the flow of creative expression for individuals and performers of all disciplines.
