I am Sam Hook

When I first met Sam (the ever-prideful New Yorker) in Los Angeles, I had no idea what to make of him- simultaneously, he was noticeably polite, strikingly self-possessed yet curiously quiet. I would have never guessed that at only 24 years of age, Sam has flourished as a self-taught professional songwriter to some of the most renowned artists in the music industry including NeYo, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas, John Legend, Faith Hill, Young Jeezy, The Game, Keri Hilson and more. Although he came from humble beginnings and has never had anything handed to him, it is clear that his success is not just attributed to his outstanding talent, but to his self-motivating perseverance and an uncanny sense of humility.
