In mid 2012 Sam Buckingham signed a deal with Alberts (now BMG) for worldwide publishing, alongside the likes of Gotye, Josh Pyke, and Ellie Goulding and went on to hone her songwriting throughout Nashville and New York, in preparation for recording her most recent long player ‘I’m A Bird’ (2013). Co produced with multiple ARIA winner Paul McKercher, the album explores ideas of traveling, asking questions, and breaking free from fear and expectation – a continuing theme in Buckingham’s most recent songwriting endeavours.

Her 2013 touring schedule followed a successful crowdfunding campaign where Buckingham raised funds through crowdfunding platform Pozible, to record ‘I’m A Bird’ which, soon after, was longlisted for the esteemed Australian Music Prize.
In 2014, Buckingham was invited to join Katie Noonan, Angie Hart & Melody Pool on the second ‘Songs That Made’ tour. The tour coincided with an album release of the same name, and Buckingham once again travelled to New York to record a haunting acoustic rendition of Phil Collins’ ‘Another Day in Paradise’ to contribute to the album, and joined the Australian tour in October and November. With all album profits given to the Cancer Council’s ‘Pink Ribbon Foundation’, Noonan, Hart, Pool and Buckingham collectively raised over $15,000 in physical album sales alone, while on tour.

Buckingham followed up in early 2015 with her ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ tour, her sixth national tour playing predminantly house concerts alongside intimate public venues. In what has become an obvious show of grass roots commitment and true fan support, Buckingham has embraced a DIY approach, engaging fans in many aspects of the creative process, including sharing new song demos through online platform Patreon, and even asking fans to name one of her songs.
This intimacy translates to the bigger stage, and Buckingham has graced many, including Peats Ridge, Nannup, Blue Mountains and National Folk Festivals, showcasing at the International Folk Alliance (Canada), and playing alongside the likes of Angus & Julia Stone, Matt Corby, Kasey Chambers, Lior and Washington.
Having just returned from an 18 month sojourn in Latin America, Buckingham has settled back in at home armed with new stories, songs and experiences to share. Having spent her time overseas seeking out new cultural, musical and creative influences Buckingham definitely practices what she preaches, allowing the unknown to be known and the unexpected to become the norm.
Sam Buckingham’s new album is due for release early 2017.
