SAM EVIAN
Sam Evian, (born Sam Griffin Owens) is a New York-based songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

Premium, Sam’s debut on Saddle Creek records, won audience and critical notice for songs that included the first single and video “Sleep Easy” (https://youtu.be/tqjVCNMTd_k). Premium’s release saw Sam Evian (Brian Betancourt on bass, Austin Vaughn on drums, and Adam Brisbin on guitar – often joined by Hannah Cohen for additional vocals) touring throughout the year with Whitney, Big Thief, Teenage Fanclub, Lucius, Rubblebucket and Luna, as well as headlining around the east coast.

Sam Evian returns with a new track, “I Need You,” a collaboration with Chris Cohen, whose solo and band records with Deerhoof and The Curtains were early inspirations for Sam. The musical dialogue took place over five days in Cohen’s garage studio as they tracked together with Sam on guitar and Chris on drums, and then shared overdubs. The resulting three songs will appear throughout the year, and herald a return to writing and recording for the next Sam Evian full-length album.

When not on the road, Sam is often found producing and engineering at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 studio, where he collaborates with artists such as Cass McCombs, Blonde Redhead, Deerhoof, Sam Amidon, Shahzad Ismaily, and many others. Saddle Creek recently released Sam’s production of the Wilder Maker single, “New Streets” (http://www.stereogum.com/1937208/wilder-maker-new-streets/premiere/).
