Samuel Jackson Cash (or "Boy" Cash to everyone since he was a toddler) was born in Northern Ontario to a home-schooling mom and an otherwise typical blue collar upbringing. At 16, he escaped to punk shows and basement bands in Toronto, a path that lead to drugs which lead to a path that lead to parties, one of which has become infamous with Cash climbing on a piano and singing a worn down version of “After the Goldrush” to a room full of misty-eyed celebs during the Toronto International Film Festival.
One of Cash’s “lighter EPs” (download stickers placed on various coloured Bics he hands out and sells at shows) landed on the desk of a dedicated group of supporters in LA that brought the songwriter down to the West Coast and writing alongside names he grew up reading in liner notes.
His mother’s sudden illness sent Cash packing for home before releasing his planned debut LP. After her passing, Cash moved home for good, working maintenance at a local hotel and caring for his father. Now, three years later, with Cash on the wrong side of 30, he’s easing back into performing with “Sam Cash is Dead” - a three-part EP series to be released in late 2017 into early 2018.
