Formed in the early 2000s, hip hop instrumentalists Son Of Sam are consisted of John Sam on drums, Joe Sam on bass (and guitar), Richard Halligan on keyboard, sax & flute and Tom Caruana on production, guitar & percussion.
The band gigged frequently in the mid 2000s, most notably supporting KRS One and Raekwon for their Brighton shows. Even though the group wrote many original beats none of them were ever recorded properly in a studio, they were however recorded onto mini-disk using one mic in the middle of the room. In 2011 the group picked 30 of their favourite beats and recorded them properly. Over the following few years the beats were sent to MCs to feature on the tracks. Extra musical elements were added and arrangements were refined and in 2017 they released the album 'Cinder Hill' which was literally 10+ years in the making!
