MEDIA RELEASE 

DO IT DOES IT WITH JOHN SAMMERS 

Sydney, January 1st 2018: 

Australian singer/songwriter and guitarist JOHN SAMMERS has inked a international licensing deal with DO IT Records.  The deal sees John join a label roster that includes Everclear and Snoop Dog and provides world wide distribution for “Believe”,  his stunning solo debut album along with other songs from previous releases. 

Paul Marshall, Director and founder of DO IT Records says, “DO IT Records is proud to announce the first signing of 2018 and welcomes John Sammers to their label. John’s music is a mix of The Beatles vs The Who crossed with some Blur. His lyrics are thought provoking, upbeat and at times contains elements of melancholy and despair. Overall John’s songs take the listener on a journey through many things from love to murder and everything in-between. We look forward to great things with John in 2018.” 

Paul added, “We have also picked up the licensing rights for a number of John’s songs, including the cult classic “Cicada”. A definitive recording that represents this song’s live energy is currently being remixed and remastered by triple Grammy winner Justin Guip in his upstate New York studio.” 

John Sammers says signing with DO IT Records, “gives me the platform I needed to get my music out to a global market with the support of a solid, experienced global company.  It’s a great feeling.”

Guitar or Songwriting Tutorials 

Hey everyone,

I was attending a fabulous Sacred Music course (how to connect with your greater self {Nada Shakti} when playing) and held a guitar workshop at the end of Saturday - I trained as a music teacher in the UK and do love sharing my experience - anyway, loads of beginners and intermediate players there asked for lessons, so I am now offering tutorials via Skype. You simply pay for a lesson and i will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time. Also, owing to the years I have spent writing songs and studying writing songs i'm also offering Songwriting lessons.

The spaces are limited so please don't hesitate if you are considering it......I have a bit of spare time at present before starting rehearsals.

Final stretch 

Mastering complete and IMHO it sounds gorgeous (my mum agrees). I'm planning a preview of the album on or around the 28th March in Sydney. It will be an RSVP event with limited places. Signed copies of the CD and T-shirts will be on sale. Those interested put the date in your diary & tell your friends.  

Official announcement coming as soon as the venue is confirmed. 

The first video from the album, a song (We Won't Be) Terrorised in support of the water protectors at Standing Rock will be released in a few days - stay tuned.
