Sam Evian, (born Sam Griffin Owens) is a New York-based songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

Premium, Sam’s debut on Saddle Creek records, won audience and critical notice for songs that included the first single and video “Sleep Easy” ( Premium’s release saw Sam Evian (Brian Betancourt on bass, Austin Vaughn on drums, and Adam Brisbin or Buck Meek on guitar – often joined by Hannah Cohen for additional vocals) touring throughout the year with Whitney, Big Thief, Nick Hakim, The Districts, Allah-Las, Teenage Fanclub, Lucius, Rubblebucket and Luna, as well as headlining from coast to coast.

Sam Evian released “Need You” and “I Remember” in October 2017. The single was a collaboration with Chris Cohen, whose solo and band records with Deerhoof and The Curtains were early inspirations for Sam, and its release anticipates a new full-length LP Sam recorded with his band in 2018.

When not on the road, Sam is often found producing and engineering at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 studio, where he collaborates with artists such as Cass McCombs, Blonde Redhead, Deerhoof, Sam Amidon, Shahzad Ismaily, and many others.
