She moved to New York City in pursuit of a vocal career, landing work as a singing bartender in a popular East Village karaoke lounge. But it wasn't until a trip to Los Angeles - where she was introduced to Josh Paul of Daughtry and Scott Ueda of Glitch - when things began to take shape. Sammy relocated to sunny Southern California and the trio formed the popular LA band, Seven Stitches. The group drew big crowds and received critical praise, winning awards for Best Female Vocal, Song of the Year and Best Rock Band at the All Access music awards.
Soon after, Sammy began recording her debut solo project. She is releasing her first solo EP on June 15, 2010 titled, "Behind the Sun" which she wrote and recorded with GRAMMY®-nominated writer/producer Jeeve (Nicole Scherzinger, Paulina Rubio, Carlos Santana, Thalia, Tupac Shakur, Hypnogaja) and writer/producer Mark Nubar (Eden's Crush, Howard Hewett, Hypnogaja). Her first singles, "I Can See Into Forever," (a duet with Jason "ShyBoy" Arnold, lead singer of the alt. rock band Hypnogaja) and "Breathe"are available now on iTunes®, Amazon and online retailers worldwide on Union State Records.
MySpace Music featured Sammy's official music video for "Breathe" on their homepage for two days. Her music has been placed on hit television shows such as NBC's Friday Night Lights. Additionally, her song "Torn" is featured in the original motion picture Vice, starring Michael Madsen and Daryl Hannah (Madsen also makes a cameo appearance in the song's music video).
