Sam Roberts Band


Sam Roberts Band

Singer/songwriter/violinist-turned-guitarist Sam Roberts is one of those guys who seems like he came from out of nowhere overnight, but this roots-rocker’s career actually built slowly in his native Canada. It started with a band named William, later called Northstar. After they broke up, Roberts recorded Brother Down, followed by the EP, The Inhuman Condition. A slow starter, it finally caught on after a re-release; the singles “Brother Down” and “Don’t Walk Away Eileen” wound up turning into huge hits in 2002 and made the album the best-selling independent release in Canadian history. Roberts’ major-label debut, We Were Born in a Flame, dropped in mid-2003, followed by Chemical City in 2006. His 2008 disc, Love at the End of the World, debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian album chart. To date, Roberts — who’s been likened to “a young Bruce Springsteen in both sound and swagger” — has racked up six Juno awards (Canada’s equivalent of the Grammys).
