In September of 2019, in a relaxed and intimate conversational setting, Sam sat down to talk with Louise Goffin about his life before and after his success and revealed an inspiring story of perseverance and likable-guy determination. Listen and find out more! Once an academically-challenged teenager who couldn't understand what he'd read, and who felt like a misfit in school, Sam Hollander spent his his youth trying to find a way to engage with the world with his love of music, surrounded by a family of high-achieving creative parents. His story is an inspiration for the many kids in schools who are mischaracterized as "failing" when they simply find it hard to engage in school systems or are unable to demonstrate their gifts through standardized testing. Sam was determined to either work with the artists who would be chart-toppers or to create them himself by developing and helping unknown talent, writing their hit songs. His genuine love of music and the music business, along with his talent for production and rhymes, eventually led to a transformation of his situation as he began writing and producing worldwide hits for the likes of Fitz and The Tantrums, Panic! at the Disco, One Direction, Carole King, Ringo Starr, Sugar Ray, Gym Class Heroes, Tom Jones, Chiddy Bang, Weezer, We The Kings, Sugar Ray and more.
