(NEW RELEASE) Star Maker Winner Sammy White Releases New Single 'Lay It On Me'

Sammy describes the new single; “I co-wrote this track with Peta Cherae Peters after a guy was giving me the cold shoulder one minute and then leaving me to pick up the pieces the next. I was past the point of being frustrated, and like any thing, I used writing as an outlet. Almost a ‘therapy’-write, neither of us knew we would create this.”
 
Originally from Townsville, now Newcastle-based, 22-year-old Sammy was met with roaring applause as her name was announced as the 41st winner of the prestigious talent search.
 
Since then, she has been spending her time recording and preparing for this release.

‘A tough year for a Star Maker winner’ is an understatement with Sammy experiencing what all artists and musicians are, and that is having all festival performances, tours and appearances placed on hold, until further notice, due to the current pandemic of COVID-19 that’s gripping the world.
 
Toyota Australia Chief Marketing Officer Wayne Gabriel said it was testament to Sammy’s drive and talent that she was determined to continue to write record and work on her debut album under the current conditions.
 
“We have seen how music has been one of the greatest mediums binding communities together throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
 
“Like many Star Maker winners before her, Sammy has the potential to truly grow her career as a musician and as a company with its Australian roots in rural communities, Toyota is proud to support aspiring, talented musicians to achieve their dreams.” 
 
Sammy is making the most of her time writing new music, conducting singing lessons online and practising in readiness for live music performances.
