Born and bred in the beautiful, beach-side town of Geelong, Sam Phay has been writing songs since he was twelve years old. With a passion and natural talent for keys and guitar, it didn’t take long for Sam to start writing heartfelt ballads and up-tempo indie-pop songs beyond his years.
From the foundations of a true musician, Sam has written and performed in bands of varying genres since early high-school. In 2013, Sam settled his feet in indie-rock band, Club Yorke (formerly known as Residual) whose most recent release peaked at #3 on the Australian iTunes Alternative Chart.
With a library of hundreds of songs written from an unbridled passion for music, Sam Burtt was invited to partake in the 2016 50 Songs in 5 Days Australian songwriting camp and spent 2017 collaborating with the songwriters and producers alike.
