In one of the more anticipated independent releases of 2014, Sam Woolf releases his debut EP album “Pretend”. The album features his acclaimed vocals and organic style with original lyrics reflecting emotions held close as he navigated through turbulent periods of his youth. The EP was produced, engineered and mixed by Grammy-winner Danny Blume, and features backing vocals by Curtis King and Cindy Mizzelle of the Bruce Springsteen tour. Danny Blume commented, “Sam is a natural singer whose soul and passion are undeniable in every note he sings. Sam’s beautiful heartfelt lyrics, delivery, melodic instinct, and rock solid guitar playing made this record a joy to produce.” The EP is currently available for purchase online at CD-BABY™ where the full-length tracks and liner notes can be previewed during the holiday season without charge at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/samwoolf. The EP will subsequently become available on iTunes.
