Live. Safe. Portable.

After months of cancelled contracts, Samuel missed the joy of singing to a live audience. Inspired by friends and colleagues around the world, he has cultivated a series of 

front porch concerts.

These outdoor performances allow anyone to experience the thrill of the human voice in a safe, socially distant, and familiar environment: their own yards.


Seize this opportunity to relax and enjoy live music without fear. 

Translations and programs are available on this website, and performances run about 35 minutes. And don't worry, if social distancing can't silence us, cooler weather definitely won't stop the music!



A gift? You're so kind!
