Line Hilton from Shed Light Events talks to the very talented and industry savvy Sam Brown. Sam is well known as the singer and writer of the top 10 hit "Stop" but you may not know that her career started as a very young girl singing backing vocals with her mum, Vicki, in her dad's (Joe Brown) recording studio. Sam was working professionally as a session singer before she got signed and has worked with many of the legends of the rock/pop/jazz world including Pink Floyd, Dave Gilmore, Nick Cave, Jools Holland, George Harrison and Dave Rotheray. Here she talks very frankly to Line about her experiences, what she thinks of the music industry, why she stopped singing since 2006 and the pros and cons of being a signed artist. Shed Light Events holds inspired learning events for singers, live and online.Shed Light Events -inspired learning for singers www.shedlightevents.com info@shedlightevents.com T@shedlightevents
