25-year-old Sam V is no stranger to turning heads, eyes and ears with his distinctive vocal talent and showman energy.
The 2022 Best Pacific R&B/Soul award winner saw somewhat of a breakout 2022, achieving his first national awards, national tour and international recognition through notable collaborations with STNDRD, SWIDT, Kennyon Brown, Poetik, Victor J Selo & more. Having emerged on YouTube at the tender age of 11, these were pivotal moments in the ascension of Auckland City's very own city boy; Sam V.
'The one, the lonely EP' and consequent national tour afforded Sam V the opportunity to establish himself as the premier rising R&B talent of New Zealand, cemented with his recent international booking at Promiseland 2023.
Not one to shy away from the spotlight or pressure, Sam V is a name worth keeping tabs on as he looks to continue sharing his talent with the world.
