SAMMY ADAMS TO MAKE TELEVISION DEBUT PERFORMING “BLOW UP” ON CONAN ON JANUARY 18TH
DEBUT ALBUM COMING SPRING 2012
(New York – NY) RCA Records singer, songwriter and producer Sammy Adams will debut the music video for his first single “Blow Up” on VEVO on December 22nd. Shot in his hometown of Cambridge, MA and directed by Nathan Crooker the video features Adams leading a crew of kids (comprised of Sammy’s fans who were recruited via Twitter) to the ultimate house party.
On January 18th, Adams will make his nationwide television debut, performing “Blow Up” on Conan which airs at 11pm EST/PST on TBS.
“Blow Up” is the first single off Adams’ still untitled debut RCA Records album, due out Spring 2012. “Blow Up”, which Idolator and Celebuzz exclusively premiered along with a special fan video in November, is currently available at all digital music providers.
24 year old Sammy Adams hails originally from Cambridge, MA and currently lives in New York City. Classically trained on piano since childhood, interests grew into producing and later into singing / rapping. It was while sitting in class at Trinity College (where Adams was a political science major and captain of the soccer team) that he came up with the idea for his breakthrough single “I Hate College” — a cheeky remix of Asher’s Roth’s “I Love College,” which he recorded in his dorm room. Adams independently released album Boston’s Boy shot to the top of the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap chart on its first day out in March 2010, selling nearly 8,000 digital copies that week and outpacing albums by Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled. His independent viral videos have garnered millions of YouTube views, including “I Hate College” (6 mil) and “Driving Me Crazy” (3.4 mil). He performed over 100 shows and sold over 100K tickets across North America in the last year including a set at Lollapalooza and a sold out headlining show at New York City’s Terminal 5.
