Famous for her tagline “Brliing” and how she fearlessly shares her story of battling her demons while radiating hope and positive energy, Sammie B is an artist from Cornwall, New York who can rap, sing, write, produce, paint, design, and create.
Samantha Brooke Birmelin (Sammie B’s real name) already started rapping and writing poetry at an early age. As she grew older, she was certain that her destiny was to become an artist and musician.
Her interest in rapping was fostered by some notable personalities in the business, namely, 2Pac, Missy Elliott, and Kid Cudi.
“They really have impacted me, my music, and my path in many ways. I was a poet before anything else so 2Pac is the artist I connected with the most. “Changes” by 2Pac is one of my favorite songs. I’ve always felt his spirit and passion connected with mine,” Sammie B said.
Meanwhile, Missy Elliott, the funky fresh hip-hop artist who changed the game for all female artists, helped Sammie B in staying true to herself as she progresses in her rapping career.
“I saw myself in Missy Elliott when I was younger, as she was authentic and not trying to sell sex. I loved how she feels herself in such a unique and authentic way,” she said.
Lastly, Kid Cudi serves as a huge inspiration to the artist from Cornwall since he was able to completely express his deepest emotions through music, something Sammie B did after going through the loss of her father, a relationship heartbreak, and battling with addiction.
“He made me realize my purpose is to save the lives of many through my genuine and raw music because he saved mine along with countless others,” she said.
Expressing Herself Through Music
With everything that she’s been through, Sammie B has learned to turn her pain into passion and use music to get her message of love and positivity across.
“People need to know who I am and what I’m about because it’s bigger than the music- it’s bigger than me. I want to make the world a better place through all of my creations,” Sammie B said.
She added that she wants everyone to know that it’s okay to go struggle; it’s okay to be hurt and in pain, and that they can come out of it sooner or later.
“My goal is to inspire many and be the hope shot they need. My music and art display me, Sammie B, in totality,” she said.
An Artist to Look Out For
With her music surpassing 25,000 streams from 19 different countries across the globe, Sammie B is keen on keeping the ball rolling for her career as she works on various projects, one of which is a three-part project called “The Joy is in the Journey.”
“I released my five-song “The Joy Is” EP September 2020 and the second part five-song “In The Journey” EP January 2021, Sammie B. said.
Throughout the entire project, Sammie B will be performing live and give out merchandise and packages to her supporters. She will also be releasing two music videos, one from each EP.
“Once I am done with that, I will transition into releasing more singles with visuals the rest of the year and I will continue performing live virtually and hopefully in person as well,” she shared.
