Daily Inspiration: Meet Sami Lin

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sami Lin.

Hi Sami, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I’m a Chicago-raised, Nashville-based, singer-songwriter. I started as a cover artist as most young people do. I would be playing one to five-hour sets of all cover songs, throwing in a few originals. I have been writing music for over ten years and love every minute of it.

I’m also a recent graduate from Belmont University and got my degree in Songwriting and Music Business. I studied a lot of audio engineering as well during my time there as a student.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
The music industry will never be a smooth road for anyone, even those who have one-hit wonders. The industry is constantly changing and it’s sometimes hard to keep up. I originally walked into Belmont studying Music Therapy and left with my degree in Songwriting.

There have been so many challenges thrown at me but you have to work your way around them if you can’t overcome them. Personally speaking, I had spinal fusion surgery when I was six years old, so I have been in constant limbo between living with pain and chasing my dreams.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
As a songwriting major, I also had to take more business and audio engineering classes. I learned how to mix and master music and how to set up professional co-writes. I specialize in songwriting specifically for others. I’m a Jack of all trades in a way.

One of the most important projects I’ve been a part of so far was a song I wrote for the Dravet Foundation. My single Jackson’s Song is being used by the Dravet Syndrome Foundation in an awareness video about this disease.

What sets me apart from others is that I’m not here to get ahead of everyone. I’m here to grow authentically with others and help those who ask for it. I make sure I’m up to date on all things in Songwriting, audio production, and the music business as a whole.

What does success mean to you?
Success for me means that I’ve found myself as a songwriter and as a person. I could be chasing my dream my entire life, but not giving it up is what keeps me successful.
