Sam Llanas is an iconic American singer, acoustic guitarist, and songwriter. Best known for his unique and distinctively soulful voice, Llanas burst onto the national music scene in 1986.
After 25 years of a storied career with his band, including being a part of U2’s celebrated Joshua Tree tour, singing on Robbie Robertson’s “Somewhere Down the Crazy River,” being voted best new band by the readers of Rolling Stone Magazine, and sharing the stage with such luminaries as David Bowie, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, and Tom Petty it was time for a change.
After leaving in 2011, Llanas released 4 A.M., a stripped down, quietly introspective offering that reflected the mood of the title. Once again critics were taken with the haunting quality of his singing and his ability to construct concise songs with lovely melodies that manage to say a lot with a few simple basic chords and a minimum of straightforward words.
In 2014 came The Whole Night Thru, the third installment (he released his first solo album, A Good Day to Die in ‘97) of what Llanas calls his night music. While retaining a mostly darker tone, “TWNT” also contained elements of his former bands most loved songs (it was Llanas after all who wrote his former bands biggest hit “Closer To Free”).
