Glam Sam and his Combo is the brain child of Mats Samuelsson, a Stockholm-based journalist, writer and music lover.

Back in the days he got involved in a promising indie jazz-pop duo in Sweden, but after a couple of fine demos the dudes quit the game and returned to university.

Suddenly, too many years later, Mr Samuelsson stepped out as Glam Sam, formed his Combo and started a musical adventure based on pure joy. Only one thing was settled: the music should be, must be and will be: Groovy!

During a year of inspirational fun, the debut album evolved and got filled with all the things Glam Sam loves about music: the jazz, the disco, the funk and the soul, the grooves and the coolness as well as fun samples and top vocals. The bubbling jazzy and funky rhythm section is accompanied with swaying pianos, rhodes, groovy guitars and organs, playful horns and, yeah, some vibraphones as well.

The 18-track strong debut album is called “Groovy!” – the sounds to make you smile, dig, lounge and dance.Yeah, it’s good! It’s groovy! So, groovers of the world, unite and get ready for Glam Sam and his Combo.

“Love your tunes!! Puts me back in the Friday mood. Mmmmm”, says the wonderful Hilde Louise Asbjornsen, Norway’s number 1 jazz singer.

Mark Gentry, a groovy man with the weekly radio show Soul Heaven, is on the move too:
“If you like jazz influenced dance grooves then this will be just up your street! Full of good tunes that will get you up out of your seat and onto your feet. You will get your groove on!! I predict that this album will receive the worldwide recognition as it so rightly deserves.”

Soon, the second album “The Paradise Groove” followed, with deepened dance floor vibes. And the radio dj’s got the groove on in Brazil and London, in Germany and Spain…

Then there were the ep’s, a series of brilliant ep’s, and in 2014 it was time to celebrate Glam Sam’s strong output of the past years with the Best-Of album “Feeling Groovy – Glam Sam’s Greatest Hits”.

End of story? Not really. Beware groovers! In the autumn of 2015 Glam Sam is announcing his great comeback. Time to get some pure coolness again…

This time he brought a bunch of good funky friends to the studio to create the happiest block party vibes that Stockholm has to offer.
