The reason why Samia Sun writes, sings, records and performs is simple. There is no other passion other than being an artist, allowing for a vibe of jazz, pop, world sounds and elecronica to blend seamlessly with a personality that shines openly with a moving vulnerability and honesty. This is showcased with vocals and lyrics influenced by her life, sometimes soft, as in “Little Comedy”, lamenting the loss of love, or “Where the wind blows” and "Quickly Going Gone" where she becomes strong again.
Her collaboration with the recording artist USER has resulted in her debut album “Our Fire”. USER is a multi instrumentalist who also programs electronic music having toured in North and South America, and Canada. Amrit Basi, recently back from a stint at Glastonbury with Blackberry Wood which was followed by a European tour is the drummer on “Our Fire”.
Samia Sun has performed with USER at the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver, and last year in Mexico , taking time to shoot the video for "Where the Wind Blows" in Oaxaca.
