Named after the lead character in 30s' Pulp detective novel The Maltese Falcon, Sam Spades is a high--‐energy rockabilly band from Edmonton, Alberta. The band takes a new twist on songs steeped in rockabilly tradition and has just released its first EP, Wolf.
“With Wolf, Sam Spades Has made a classic blues and rockabilly album that sounds as fresh and relevant as the throw--‐back bands that they’ve chosen to emulate. And For any fans of rockabilly, Wolf Would be an excellent record to add to your collection."--‐ Jamie Robash, The Equal Ground.
Formed In the fall of 2013, Sam Spades Has been growing its audience by playing concerts, clubs, and festivals around Western Canada. The band’s core includes John Richards on upright bass, Greg Hann on drums, Trevor B McNeely on lead guitar, and Sam Heine on guitar and lead vocals.
