Live & Kicking: Sam Bucca Live & Kicking Meet the Songwriter Session

Sat 19 November at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Arts OutWest is pleased to present in conjunction with The 7 Valleys Hotel in Lithgow a very special afternoon Live & Kicking show featuring Lithgow Indie singer songwriter Sam Bucca.

Sam Bucca is a prolific songwriter who has effortlessly traversed melodic folk-punk and progressive hard rock. Possessing the storytelling skills of great observational writers such as Billy Bragg & Elvis Costello, Sam is also able to get into listeners ears with music whilst opening their minds via the lyrics. The Lithgow Valley artist commenced writing clever and wry political commentary some sixteen years ago with his song “Lead On”. But, as an empath who’s genuinely interested in the human experience and everyday observations of how we manage our hearts in a brutal world.

His most recent release “You’ll Find”, produced by Peter Kennard, sees Sam exploring a soaring melodic sonic adventure, reminiscent of Bragg & Costello with a touch of Tim Buckley. Come and enjoy a Saturday afternoon and Meet the Songwriter in the relaxed atmosphere of the 7Valleys with one of the Valleys as your backdrop. Gather your friends up for a perfect way to lead into a Big Fat Saturday night.

You won’t be able to live stream or download it, you’ve gotta be there to experience it.
Live & Kicking gigs are supported by the Australian Governments Live Music Australia.
