SAM POUNDS/ SAM HARMONIX
Sam Pounds grew up in a small rural town in North Carolina known as Bahama. In Bahama, Sam did two things: work on the farm and learn how to sing. Harmonix quickly became acquainted with quartet gospel music through his Grandma Ruth. She would have Sam sing and play instruments every Sunday night for her guests starting at the age of three. This introduction to playing and performing music early in his adolescence became the solid foundation for Sam’s musical journey. His early inspirations included Little Richard, Lenny Kravitz (Rock), Sam Cooke (Gospel), and James Brown (Soul) collectively combined and infused into his country roots to create a signature sound.
As a producer, Sam is at home in multiple genres ranging from Pop, R&B, Rock, Rap, Hip-Hop, EDM, and Country. A few of his recent production credits include Jamie Foxx, Snoop Dogg, BTS, T-Pain, T.I., Willie Jones, Jeffrey East, Lee Brice, and Jimmie Allen.
But it’s on stage that Sam Pounds shines. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2019, he has over 200 shows under his belt that granted him access to the inner circles of Hollywood’s elite. His ability to grab the audience, get them out of their chairs and comfort zones, while singing back lyrics they just heard a chorus ago, is something you need to experience to fully appreciate. There’s a sweet irony that Sam had to come all the way to Los Angeles to reconnect to his country roots but that’s part of his electric and spiritual journey that Sam Pounds embraces.
