Red Sammy

About Red Sammy:
In 2005, local Baltimore songwriter, Adam Trice, founded Red Sammy, which he describes as a “graveyard country band.” The band name, a reference to Flannery O’Connor’s story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find” (1955), is a perfect pairing for the band’s dark and menacing style.

Graveyard country music is like a Jackson Pollock black pouring, or a Robert Motherwell elegy. It is imbued with Garcia Lorca’s duende: “black sounds are the mystery.” Gritty, stark storytelling, part southwest rock, part Cash and Escovedo. Sparse, but accessible, there’s a thread that runs through the music, from Hawthorne and Poe (fitting, since the band is from Baltimore), to Faulkner and Flannery O’Conner.
