Although Sam Wilson has built a reputation for himself as one the top

axe-men in central Virginia, he has always thought of himself as

first and foremost a songwriter.  This love of songs, the simplicity

of a musical moment, has been the driving force in Sam's musical

career.  In spite of all his different musical hats- the youthful thrash metal out-fit Catharsis, his formal musical training at James Madison University in jazz and classical, his current gig in the roots-rock band Sons of Bill- Sam has always been driven by a singularity of purpose, a passion which will forever keep him on the stage and in the studio.
