Hanukkah Murray

Marcus Stevens and Sam teamed up to write a new tune for the 2023 installment of 54 Celebrates Hanukkah: A Festival of Writers, and had the great joy of premiering and performing it together at 54 Below.

The new theme song for the Kansas City Starlight Blue Star Awards, written specially for the good folx in KC by Sam and Marcus Stevens, with vocal arrangements by Madeline Benson. The song was written, and was first recorded and performed, in isolation during the first spring and summer of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

An award-winning Seoul-based children's language program; as a staff writer, Sam has written over 170 songs to help Korean kiddos learn how to speak English.

 Little BiG Things

A series of teensy-tinsy art songs written with the exceptionally brilliant poet, cartoonist and theater-maker Jay Eisenberg.  The line-up includes "On the Care and Keeping of Plants," "The Common Could," "This, Too," and "Possibilities."

Check out the inimitable Kerstin Anderson singing the whole set of 'em at Feinstein's / 54 Below in August 2017.

Christmas Carol

In December 2014, The Actor's Fund brought together a dazzling array of talent to perform the animated classic live on stage for the first time ever.


The shimmering Jule Styne / Bob Merrill score (with additional lyrics by Sam!) careened back, back, back on Broadway with a 28-piece orchestra led by Emmy- and Grammy-winner John McDaniel.  Oh, and there was plenty of razzleberry dressing.
