"Sami Akbari - Original, exciting, one of the best artists Ive seen, and sure to bring the house down - don't miss her!" Larry Oakes - NYSongwriters.com

"In the sea of musicians in this crazy world, there are not many that can stop you in your tracks with the sound of their voice and their poetic lyrics that cut to the bone like Sami Akbari can. Sami Akbari is an artist that amazes people with her talent each and every time she performs, sometimes leaving listeners in tears with her heartfelt, bluesy vocals. Raised outside of Philadelphia, Sami began singing and writing at the early age of six. She began to hit the Philadelphia open mic circuit in 2002, and since then, has made tremendous strides both with her emotion-evoking lyrics and soulful voice. Sami moved to Brooklyn in June of 2005 to continue writing, singing and performing her music to anyone who will listen. She quickly established a place for herself in the New York City music scene playing at prestigious venues such as The Bitter End, Pianos, and CBs Lounge." -myspace.com/samiakbari

If you ask Mike Grubbs' mother, she'll tell you he's the best looking boy in any given room... Raised underneath the old burgundy baby grand Mike soon found music to be the defining factor of his life. Plagued by the inability to concentrate on anything for any reasonable length of time, he found romance and escape in the world of Brahms, Bach, and Beethoven. One day he awoke to find himself a tall, sensitive, string bean of a man, with a wonderful habit of falling in love 20 times a day. So he packed his few belongings and relocated to New York City to tell his story the only way he knew how.
