(2004-2012) Pete Samples is the moniker of a music project I started in 2002 at 16 years old. 2 years later, I signed to a Universal Music record label, Vinyl Republik and released my first album. It was rated the top 10 albums of 2004 by CBC, it reached #1 on the Earshot! National Radio Charts and earned praise in magazines from XLR8R, Vice Magazine and Exclaim. From 2004-2012 I self produced 4 full length albums and toured Canada playing shows with incredible Canadian artists like Rich Aucoin, Patrick Watson and Yukon Blonde.
