Welcome to our 42nd installment of Weis Center Sessions! Each Friday, we release a video that features a member of the Bucknell University community.
Today, we feature Bucknell student Sami Wurm ’22 performing an original piece, “Wrong Guy.”
Sami is an R&B/Pop singer, producer, and songwriter from New York. She is majoring in Computer Science and Multimedia Music Composition at Bucknell.
She began singing when she was cast as the Tin Man in a local production of The Wizard of Oz at 4 years old, and after that, Sami grew up pursuing her love for musical theatre, performing in musicals and cabarets Off-Broadway. She began writing her own music around the age of 13, and she has since fallen in love with production and audio engineering; she writes/produces all of her released tracks.
“Wrong Guy” is the first single that Wurm released on all platforms. She published this piece at the beginning of quarantine on April 12th last year. She says, “It’s crazy to think that a year has gone by since I produced this record in my bedroom, but I am so grateful to begin performing it now.”
Sami hopes that you enjoy this experience as it is the closest she can get to sharing her music live in our current environment, and she looks forward to sharing it more intimately, in-person, someday soon.
Recorded at and produced by the Weis Center for the Performing Arts at Bucknell University.
