The Amazing Nina Simone - A Documentary Film - Coming Soon!

Sam Waymon
Sam Waymon was born in North Carolina, and began his musical odyssey playing alongside his sister, Eunice. His sister left North Carolina in the '50s and traveled north to pursue her career. Along the way she dropped her given name and became one of music's most influential and independent musicians, known as Nina Simone. Sam worked with his sister for over ten years but finally broke away to develop his own style that combined everything from gospel to jazz.

Sam went on to record for record labels like: RCA, and Polygram, and has worked side by side with legendary artists like Miles Davis, Donnie Hathaway, Roberta Flack, Phyllis Hyman, and groups like, The 5th Dimension, and Main Ingredient. He also starred in the feature film, "Ganja and Hess" (directed by Bill Gunn), and wrote the film's score. That led to writing songs and scores for the film, "Weeds", and Jonathan Demme's "Philadelphia".

Sam "Magic Man" Waymon lives in Nyack, NY where he performs regularly throughout New York City and the surrounding area.

"Sam Waymon celebrates life. Whether it's a performance or a movie score, his music moves you from somewhere deep inside and gets you on your feet.
-Matthew Seig, Director, Rivertown Films

"Sam Waymon is extraordinary. He has presence, talent and personality. He is more than an entertainer - he is an experience and a wonderful one at that."
- Cliff Woods, President, Rockland Community College

"Waymon has expressed a concern that history has a way of remembering the battle but forgetting the blood. Through his composing and performance, Sam Waymon won't let us forget either."
-Bill Batson, Author and Artist of Nyack Sketch Log

"Sam Waymon is a great musician and great singer. Recently, Sam appeared as himself in my off-Broadway show, Wild Children"
-Vincent Pastore, Actor and Writer from "The Sopranos"
