Sam Is Dead started off as a blog in 2012 that was run only by Samuel Diaz. As time progressed more people started to monitor and check out the blog. The decision was made in 2014 to re-launch Sam Is Dead on WordPress and to add members to the team.

Anthony Diaz joined the team in late 2013. Later Franky Sandoval and Miguel Torres joined on as well. We are open to adding more members so if you are interested shoot us an email and we’ll get back to you.


Our mission is to expose music to all of our peers that they might not have been aware of. We created this to become a go to website for people to listen to and discover new music. A goal of ours is to expose local artists in the city of Chicago where we reside but we don’t limit it to just that. We are very proud of the music & culture in our hometown and want to showcase it for everyone to see.

We started off as and now we’re here.
