      Bio

      Sean Kelly and his band of roving rock and roll gypsies have been making albums and exhaustively touring for twenty years. Outlaws in the battles of file sharing and music that actually means something, heroes of the voice of the environment, The Samples enjoy an underground ardent and loyal fan base that remains true to the band just as the music continues to remain true to it's purposes of spreading peace, love, joy and subtle messages about the world around us. Despite being left out in the cold by the major labels, The Samples keep us warm and sunny with their infectious, melodious music, their interactive and friendly stage presence, and their general approachability in this world of bling and bodyguards. There is nothing like a live Samples show, the friendliest place on Earth.
      What will MTV not play next? What reality show will shoot to the top? Are all housewives really desperate? Who CARES!! In this polyunsaturated-fat world of synthetic drivel passing as music and the overabundance of lies, cheating and deceit one can take comfort in the sounds and spirit of The Samples. Passion of the Music. Simply put, Sean Kelly (chief songwriter of The Samples) pens songs from the heart. Honest and unrelenting in soaring melodies and memorable choruses. Why have The Samples not reached the pinnacle of financial success that many of the bands contemporaries have? Many talk about maintaining integrity and staying true to the fans and the music. Kelly mentions, We [continue to] do it. Eschewing major label deals, (and major label annoyances) they produce an authentic fan-based series of life soundtracks. The Samples success is measured in its legions of supporters maintaining the bands longevity. The Samples are to the music business what a home cooked meal is to a fast food restaurant. Music that is organic and made with love and passion is left no place at the excessive music business table of over produced, imitation and counterfeit offerings. You owe it to yourself to listen right and stay fit!
      (Re)Discover The Samples. The best band you've never heard of.
      Music being one of the most abstract of the popular arts, it is hard to know exactly why some bands succeed and others fail. This much we do know: The Samples was once a band teetering toward failures. It was the early 90s, and The Samples were playing competent post-folk rock reggae in the tradition of The Police and Neil Young. And in the post-folk rock tradition, the group was widely ignored. After a two-month affiliation with a major label, The Samples had its contract revoked. The band was deemed not only hopelessly un-commercial but also hopelessly uninteresting.
