When rising pop artist Sam Fischer moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music full-time, he would lie to his mom about how it was going. “I’d say, ‘Everything is good, I’ve got money and I’m killin’ it and have all these opportunities,’ but I was sleeping on couches and working as a delivery boy for an Australian meat pie shop,” he recalls.
But thanks to his emotional and all-too-relatable ballad, “This City," which is about how L.A. nearly broke his spirit, Fischer is enjoying a career high -- even if he has to experience it all from home, due to the ongoing pandemic. “I knew it was a special song, but it’s my little story and I was like, ‘Who cares?” he says. “But there’s a universal message in there.”
Now, he’s ready to prove that he’s not just “a TikTok viral moment” and is eager to share an upcoming project that has been in the works for the last four years, from when he got dropped by his first label through his recent signing with RCA. “It all feels like a freak accident to me," he says. “I dreamed of the success that I’m having now, but if I’m really honest, I never thought it would be a reality.”
