Sam's musical journey started at the very young age of 9 when his father brought home an organ with intentions of playing it himself. He soon discovered Sam was playing it with more of an interest and ability than he. Recognizing his innate talent, it didn't take much convincing for Sam's parents to start him with organ lessons. By the time he reached high school he was quite an accomplished musician, playing professionally in bands as well as doing solo "gigs." After graduating high school, Sam attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Receiving his degree in Performance, he then moved to Nashville where he began playing as a session musician, recording with some of Music City's finest artists. He also worked as a staff writer with Otis Blackwell, known for penning such hits as "Don't Be Cruel" and "All Shook Up." Feeling his music beginning to shift, he began writing original solo piano compositions and produced and released his debut CD, "A Time For The Heart." Sam began researching something a few people discretely discover......... The healing effects of music. Often taking retreats in beautiful nature settings as inspiration, a natural creative process was born. "Music has always had the power to transform one's thoughts And feelings, taking you to another place and time" -Sam Pasco This new-founded knowledge caused his music to take a new direction; a direction of healing, inner peace, and a calming of thoughts to those who heard it. His latest CD, "New Beginnings" takes the listener on a meditative and self discovery journey. Individuals experience an awakening and renewal of their souls. Couples have a warm and welcome invitation to a rediscovery of each other, enhancing their passion. Today Sam continues his work writing, composing, and performing healing and self-discovery music, as well as conducting workshops on the healing benefits of music.
