Sam Moran

singer / songwriter

Sam Moran, singer/songwriter. Born and raised around the valley of Phoenix Arizona. Son of a milkman, dairy farmer. Fourth of seven kids with three older brothers and three younger sisters. Mom worked in some of the clubs that legends like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and many more played at back in the day.


Sam left Arizona in the early 80's and headed to Florida. A brief stop in south Alabama turned into a nightmare after being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Getting stabbed in the gut is no fun. Had the juke joint not been so close to the hospital this story may not have been told. Living in Florida, and along with all the previous adventures has provided many stories, some which have become songs written by Sam with many more to come.

Introduced to a special place in Western North Carolina where an old man named Arnold "Smokey" Burnette became the inspiration to several songs, Sam held a special bond with Smokey. " Smokey was the grandfather that I never had". Hours were spent listening as Smokey told his life stories, and I listened like a child while his grandpa would read a bedtime story. 

An Outlaw........? No.

A person that creates his own path with a vision and stories to share with whom ever will listen? YES!
