"I have to constantly pinch myself to remind me that what's happened over the past few years has been real - to have gone from making music in a dorm room and fantasizing about recording and touring professionally to actually doing just that continues to blow my mind on a daily basis. We're living during an incredible time for young, independent musicians, and I feel so amazingly lucky to be a part of this space and this vibrant, new world. Making music and performing are what I've always dreamt of doing with my life, and the internet has allowed me to connect with fans from all over the world who are making that possible. And what's most incredible about this digital medium is how much of a two-way street it's made of the fan-artist relationship - I love engaging with you, the people who listen to my music, and at the end of the day, knowing that you've found something in my work that speaks to you means more to me than I can possibly describe."
Sam Tsui has been hailed as an internet singing sensation, who along with his production partner Kurt Schneider was among the first musicians to establish a hugely popular music-focused channel on Youtube. To date, his videos, including covers, medleys, and mashups, have amassed over 500 million hits on Youtube alone, with each new release, including his 2013 debut original album “Make It Up”, contributing to his ever-expanding worldwide fanbase. A recent graduate of Yale University, Tsui has been able to harness the ever-changing tools of the digital music age to independently create an internationally popular channel and brand, garnering him countless TV and magazine appearances, including The Ellen Show, The Oprah Show, Entertainment Weekly, and In Style Magazine. Tsui has all served as a host and correspondent on "American Idol" and "The Sing Off". Turning his digital success into ticket sales, he completed a two-month domestic tour in 2013 and a seven country Asia Tour in 2014, with plans for future international touring in the works. Tsui has applied his powerful digital platform to many brand deals, including KIA, Dell, and a national spot with Coca Cola that ran during the 2014 Super Bowl. Sam's second album is currently in the works.
