BIO

In the last year Sam has played over 200 shows at bars, restaurants, clubs, weddings, and concert halls. He has recently joined the backing band of Marielle Kraft’s original tours and is currently preparing for a new project geared towards fronting his own original rock group.

Samuel Alexander Capolongo was born in Seoul, South Korea on November 4, 1994. He was adopted in America at three months old and grew up in Montgomery Township, NJ. Throughout high school, Sam made his first attempts at song writing.

 

He attended the University of Delaware and graduated with a Chemistry degree. It was during his college years that Sam started to better mature as a musician.

 

All That We Live For was Capolongo’s first attempt at a full blown recording project. The 13-track self-produced album showcased his ability to write and perform a diverse sound, ranging from the warmth of soft acoustic to the punch of pop-punk rock.

 

In his later college years, Capolongo began pursuing an acoustic performing career, playing cover gigs around the Delaware area. Early on, he played with the country-rock acoustic duo Zodiac Jack. It was in the summer before his final school year that he incorporated a live looper system into his solo performances; adding percussion hits, vocal harmonies, and fuller sounds to his act. This, along with his stage presence and overall professionalism quickly separated him from other Delaware acoustic acts. 

 

Soon before graduating college, Sam met singer/songwriter Marielle Kraft. They formed an acoustic duo that has since become very well known throughout the Delaware music scene.

 

The summer after graduating, Sam was given a shot at Dewey Beach’s North Beach, a highly regarded Delaware cover stage. It was on North Beach's stage that he first performed with Jenni Schick, lead singer of the wedding band Blue Label. The duo's success let to making themselves an official duo that continues to perform today.
