Sam has been content to call Nashville, TN home. But four years and three albums later, he is packing up and moving to the Boston area to attend seminary. This newest (and probably last) record, "New Flight," is a sequel to 2010's "Everything After Flight," and deals with themes of the unknown, childhood, nostalgia, exploration, and goodbye. Written and recorded in the span of two weeks, these songs are a sending-off, a prayer for continued growing in future travels.
