More About Sammy
When Sammy was 19 years old he decided to start playing the bass. Over the past 30 years, Sammy Webber is almost a household name. If you’ve spent any time in the Gospel or Jazz Music scene then you’ll definitely have heard of Sammy.
He has played in top bands Inside Out, U-Turn, Funtime, and Virtual Jazz Reality. In addition, Sammy has recorded a few solo albums.
Many people might think that bass is just a support or background instrument. But, when Sammy plays he makes his bass sing. He is one of those players who really make the bass as a solo instrument sing. He has inspired many would be bass players to take up the instrument, and also inspired those who already play to be better.
Sammy has multiple sclerosis. What this means is that the nerve that sends visual signals to the brain is progressively breaking down.
“I’m a bassist, often backing artists so my eyesight doesn’t impact my performance that much. However, solo performances where I really need to see what I’m playing is what I struggle with.”
