Being the youngest member of a musical family, Sam Polley grew up in the music industry, but took his own time joining the family business. Forming Sam Polley and The Old Tomorrows in downtown Toronto in 2017, he surrounded himself with local musicians he knew had similar musical interests: brothers Tally and Gianni Ferraro (bass and drums), and veteran players, Fraser Melvin (Electric Guitar) and Jeff Giles (Piano/Keyboard). The band quickly meshed and played their first show to a sold-out Cameron House Crowd. In 2018, they recorded their first EP at Pacha Sound Studio in Toronto, and then embarked on a cross-country tour as a featured artist on the Jim Cuddy Band Constellation tour. They’ve played both festivals and cities throughout Ontario and recently completed their debut album, Time Forgot, drawing their sound from 50’s and 60’s rockabilly licks, old country twang, and Motown swing, blending genres to create an upbeat boogie with groovy hooks.
