Sam Riggs hails from Austin, Texas, yet his name and reputation as a songwriting scholar having fashioned one of the very best live shows on the circuit is renown.
In this day and age, music travels fast, and Sam’s steady pursuit on the heels of his own widely proceeding reputation is a marathon that he admits leaves him breathless. And so, his story continues with his brand new album “Breathless” which was released on Friday, February 19th.
The extremely listenable end project (Breathless) seems the perfect vehicle to slingshot the young artist to mainstream success.” -Country Weekly

Everybody loves a good “rags-to-riches” story. Nothing seems to inspire the masses quite as well as the story about the underdog with the larger-than-life dream that finds the path of opportunity and emerges triumphant against the odds. Sam Riggs has just such a story, and in his version, it was his move from his native Florida to Austin, Texas that was the dream.
It was his innate ability for songwriting and his passion for performance that provided the opportunity. And it was his first album “Outrun The Sun” that brought Sam up directly into high music society with stellar national reviews, hit singles, hit music videos, national television music placement, elite invitations to perform at renown events, sold out crowds, 2.2 million total streams on Spotify, 600,000 plus views on YouTube, over 30,000 followers on his social media pages, and, most recently, a spotlight feature in Rolling Stone Country.
