It was 1996 when Samee walked across her first stage. The warmth from the lights, the cheering from the crowd, the rush of knowing everyone's eyes were on her... no one knew it then, but history was being written. Fast forward 22 years- past dusty hometown festivals and shows, countless late night dive-bar gigs, singing the national anthem to crowds of thousands at baseball games or speedways across the state. It was clear there was only one direction to take. 2017 was the year of hope- with that hope, and a Uhaul full of dreams; Samee made the big move to Music City, Nashville TN.
After making the trip over 500 miles from everything she had ever known- Samee started serving tables for a living. There was a plan in place though, even if she wasn't aware of it. Samee was hired at a small listening room called 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗹𝘂𝗲𝗯𝗶𝗿𝗱 𝗖𝗮𝗳𝗲. Every night of work became an inspiration. The stories of songwriters floated through the air and reminded her of the destiny she was determined to secure for herself. She began writing songs and didn't stop. Playing writer rounds all over Nashville. From Franklin to Antioch, to 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗹𝘂𝗲𝗯𝗶𝗿𝗱 𝗖𝗮𝗳𝗲 itself- she sang her songs and spread her story to anyone willing to lend an ear.
