Carter Sampson is an Okie born, Oklahoma based singer-songwriter. Blessed by a musical legacy from a family that includes such talents as Roy Orbison, Carter’s journey as a musician seems to have been predestined. A naturally independent free spirit, what started as a pastime at age 15 had matured into a dedicated passion of creation and performance.
Some people chose to write songs. For Ryan, songwriting is an integral and primal activity. He crafts songs with the care of a poet, a carpenter, a parent. His songs are an extension of himself, collections of imagery patched together and infused with his yearning and regrets, love and anger; touching the universal with small moments of observation and the individual with personal thoughts and confessions.
