Hi! I can provide an exciting concert of original jazz/pop worship & praise music for your church or coffeehouse! I am a multi-instumentalist/singer/songwriter with one goal in mind: to praise Jesus Christ through music! I play guitar, sax, trumpet and keyboards and of course I sing and share testimony and the biblical relevance of my songs as well as the popular songs I also play. What results is a worshipful, entertaining experience which draws people to the gospel.
Price Range: love offering/your discretion
What to Expect
When people walk into my concerts and see the stage full of instruments their first thought is usually wow, thats a nice size band Sam Powell has! What they don't know yet is ...I play all the instruments! Over the course of my concert I basically jump around the stage from one instrument to another as the songs require. Keyboard intro, sax solo, trumpet line, guitar groove, I am in my element playing them all to a high level only as the Lord has enabled me. As musically entertaining as this might be, the primary reasons I sing on a stage in front of an audience is: 1) for unbelievers - clearly communicating their need for a Savior; and 2) for believers - enriching their walk with Jesus via uplifting biblically focussed songs. My prayer is that people leave inspired and changed with eternity in view.
Sam Powell is a born-again Christian on a mission. Having spent 30 years honing his skills as a singer/songwriter/musician seeking “fame and fortune” in the secular world, it wasn’t until God revealed He had another calling in mind for Sam – Christian music ministry – that Sam finally felt like he had found his true purpose in life.
Sam’s diverse God-given talents, from singing to songwriting to playing a multitude of instruments (guitar, piano, various saxophones, trumpet and flugelhorn) enable him to perform an entertaining concert of biblically centered songs, each one proclaiming some nugget of truth from God’s Word. The end result is both an inspiration and a challenge to the listener to contemplate the Bible’s message of hope and reconciliation – a message Sam thinks this world is in desperate need of.
“A true worship experience.” “Vast and diversified musical ability.” “Rich biblical themes.” “A blessing and inspiration.” “Draws people to the gospel.”
Such are the comments of pastors following concerts where Sam has ministered his unique musical gifts for the past 15 years in and around the New York City area.
Sam is deep into the writing and recording of his 4th studio album of biblically oriented music entitled “Soul Set Free.” Where his last CD, “Go to Nineveh,” was more of an evangelistically-themed effort, these new songs are much more personal in nature and were born out of experiences of the last few years, with the prayer that they might encourage listeners to resist the devil and call upon the healing power of God’s grace!
Sam is a Jewish believer in Jesus, raised in Brooklyn, NY, and presently living on Long Island. By day he is a Graphic Designer and Illustrator for a successful design firm and he leads worship at his home church in Centereach. He has 3 children with his wife and ministry partner, Theresa.
