About Sam Densmore

As always with Sam Densmore, the message is more ambiguous than it first seems. Yes, “Damn The Consequences” – the first single from his forthcoming EP Black Velvet Unicorn - is a terrific party number: it’s upbeat, bright, and confidently sung, and a departure from the more reflective material on his 2017 debut full-length Open Marriage. As much as Densmore’s narrator craves the escape of “sweet intoxication,” it’s pretty clear that he realizes that tomorrow – and a heck of a hangover – is coming. That’s Sam Densmore: willful enough to throw caution to the wind, but wise enough to expect some self-inflicted wounds.

That broad perspective has made Densmore one of the most acclaimed new voices working in a city and a state renowned for its offbeat, adventurous songwriters. Open Marriage – which addressed the deterioration of ​Densmore’s relationship in harsh, frank, and frequently funny language – was met with ecstatic reviews in Portland and beyond. After touring Europe solo in 2017, he came home, wrote all new songs, and revamped his sound and his band to include Paul Paresa (WORTH/Sweet & Juicy) on Keyboards and Backing Vocals, Joey Harmon (Bootes Void/Tango Alpha Tango) on Drums, and Cory West (Liquid Light) on Bass.. His new band features a more electric, high-energy pop-rock vibe. With Black Velvet Unicorn, Sam Densmore is ready to share this new energy with the world www.samdensmore.com

"Sam Densmore’s new single “Damn the Consequences” puts him squarely in the genre of pop philosopher. The new single has sensibility of Elvis Costello, but with the rich instrumental layering of R.E.M., and a vocal timbre that sounds just a tad like a combination of Michael Stipe and Tom Petty." Ramune Nagisetty, Portland Notes, April 2019
