Having recently performed her song “Reflection” at the Long Island Coalition Against Bullying’s 2nd Annual Fall Gala, Sammi Rae Murciano was ready to release her brand new EP, The Story, in November via iTunes and Spotify!
The three song EP, The Story, includes “Reflection” — an empowerment track that looks back at Murciano’s own experiences with being bullied; “Back to Me” — about wanting to move forward and finding the strength to trust and love again; and “Never Letting Go” — a track she says she wants “to inspire others,” continuing “no one should let anyone stop them from doing what they love.” The final track also sums up the feelings that connect through the whole EP in a sense, one of the lyrics being: “Take the risk or the chance to lose it all, let the burning desire go,” which she expresses as “meaning you should always take a chance on anything that sets your soul on fire.”
A Long Island native, Sammi Rae has been singing for three years, and garnering a ton of praise from audiences nationwide. As a recent review by Digital Journal stated, “Her breathy vocals are expressive and reminiscent of a young Demi Lovato”, and for Murciano, singing is her passion.
Inspired by a wide range of talents before her, she has cited her major influences as everyone from Whitney Houston to Celine Dion, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Adele and many more. Her strong and soulful voice is well beyond her years at the young age of 16, and knowing that you have to believe in yourself and have confidence to be successful has been her continued mantra, especially showcased through her most recent single, Reflection.
On her early beginnings as a singer, she’s said of her musical awakening in school: “I always loved to sing. I was in chorus, and had a solo. Being in front of everyone performing, was an amazing feeling. I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.” Additionally, “I would love to tour all over the world, and my dream is to perform at Madison Square Garden.” And with her continued drive and incredible voice, she certainly seems to be on the right path.
With an incredible sense of motivation for following her true calling, Murciano has said she owes it to “knowing that I get to get up everyday, and do what I love, which is singing,” and with that amount of drive, there will certainly be more to come.
