Born in Greensboro, North Carolina, Sam Fribush began his professional career playing a variety of instruments including steelpan and banjo. In 2017, Fribush graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music and has recently produced and recorded music with Charlie Hunter, Lucius, Hiss Golden Messenger, and many more. The Sam Fribush Organ Trio released their latest albums, Riverboat :Vol. I and Vol. II in 2021.
“There are moments on Riverboat when it’s easy to forget this record is made by three people. With the enchanting guitar work of legendary Charlie Hunter, the evocative, soulful swing of Sam Fribush’s organ lines, and Geoff Clap’s subdued percussive hits, the Organ Trio is a dazzling outfit. Whether the band is shuffling through a timeless D’Angelo joint or revitalizing a Bonnie Raitt classic, these immaculate tracks are easy to lose yourself in.” – Grant Golden, CLTure
