Q&A: Sam Leyde Band
Sagecliffe Performing Artist Q & A
Tell us about your background (where are you from, when did you start performing, what inspired you to start writing music etc):
I grew up in the Seattle area but I live in North Idaho now. I started performing about 6years ago.
I started writing songs because of a girl. Haha.
What is it about music that makes you feel passionate?
It’s that feeling that’s difficult to describe. Like a warm ray of sunshine that hits your soul. That’s what I’m chasing with music.
Tell us about your proudest moment in your career as a musician.
Probably our album release concert. Hearing 400 people sing my songs back to me. It was unreal.
Do you have any hobbies outside of music?
Fly fishing, though I don’t get to go much.
What is your favourite thing about performing at Sagecliffe Resort?
Gotta say the people I’ve met so far.
What would be your biggest dream/accomplishment as an artist?
Living a life where songs paid the bills.
What are you working on now?
Trying to release more music. Building the band’s fan base and expanding our travel area.
