Multi-platinum New Zealand singer-songwriter Sammy Johnson has returned with his new single “Already Beautiful” on tastemaker label Mensch House Records across digital platforms. On his new single, Sammy tries to uplift his audience with a simple message of positivity; you are already beautiful. Sammy lets his listeners know that they don’t need make-up or filters, and that beauty comes in all different shapes and sizes.
Somewhere between the charisma of Frank Sinatra, the empathetic tone of Bob Marley, and the smooth and sultry vocal runs of Lauryn Hill, lives the warm and kind voice of Sammy Johnson. An Australian native, Sammy Johnson embraces his Maori and Polynesian roots to create positive and uplifting music. Blending together island reggae, soul, and jazz vibes with heartfelt lyrics, Sammy’s sound is exhilarating and intoxicating.
Now based in the U.S., Sammy has seemingly exploded on the market selling out venues across the country, as more and more fans have discovered his genre-bending skills as a songwriter and his smooth signature croon. Touring with the likes of Common Kings and The Green, as well as headlining One Love Music Festival to a captivated crowd of over 15,000, Sammy Johnson has emerged as one of the cannot-miss live acts of the genre.
Sammy Johnson stayed busy during the pandemic releasing a slew of new music like the Acoustic Sessions and last year’s Cool and Easy album, which featured the hit “For Your Love”. Sammy Johnson is currently putting the final touches on his upcoming new album for release later this year.
Sammy Johnson is set to co-headline two upcoming Island Empire Festival dates with FIJI: July 24th in Costa Mesa, CA at Pacific Amphitheatre, and September 24th in N. Las Vegas, NV at The Amp at Craig Ranch. Island Empire Festival will celebrate the rich musical talent from across the Islands, and feature support from powerhouse female artists like Anuhea, Eli-Mac, and Analea Brown.
