Samantha is a singer/songwriter, actor/writer, and director/voice teacher based in NYC. Growing up in Westchester County, NY, she was raised on the Great American Songbook, often dreaming of singing like Judy Garland. She eventually graduated with honors from Wesleyan University, where she wrote her honors thesis about USO Performance during WWII. Singing with the Sweets has been a dream of hers since moving to NYC so she is overJOYed to be a part of this incredible group.
Her debut EP Atonement is available on all streaming platforms; her original songs "Madly" and "Real World" were featured on the BMI #MusicMonday playlist. She performs with her band all over NYC. Samantha’s favorite theater credits include: Mary Jane Gumm in Chasing Rainbows (Paper Mill Playhouse), South Pacific (Paper Mill), Harriet in Factory Girls (11th Hour Theatre Co.) and Thea in Spring Awakening (Theatre Horizon). Over quarantine, she created a solo girl group called The SJP’s where she sings all three parts of Andrews Sisters’ songs as her three different personas: Sammy, Joy and Pearl. She is also the lead performer/creator of Devotedly, Sincerely Yours: The Story of the USO, which she is currently adapting into a television pilot. www.samanthajoypearlman.com
