Sam Nelson Harris × Villa Creek Cellars

X Ambassadors’ lead singer/songwriter Sam Nelson Harris will be performing an intimate set at Villa Creek Cellars | MAHA Estate in Paso Robles, CA on May 14, 2022.  Produced by 88 Vines Entertainment and sponsored by FlyWithWine, the early evening event will include a live acoustic performance by Harris, a wine reception, an artist meet and greet, and farm-to-table supper with celebrated chef Clark Staub of Full of Life Flatbread. Tickets for the new date will be on sale February 28th HERE and HERE.

This special event will take place rain or shine at the winery tasting room and the beautiful garden area surrounded by vineyards. Transportation to the event from downtown Paso Robles will be available, as will valet parking at the winery. A portion of the proceeds will benefit MUST! Charities.

About Sam Nelson Harris

Sam Nelson Harris is the lead singer/songwriter for multi-platinum selling rock band X Ambassadors who made their full-length debut with VHS, a 2015 release that saw the band transition from Ithaca alt-rockers and Brooklyn-indie-scene outsiders to Billboard stalwarts. Now certified platinum, VHS provided an intimate look at Harris and his brother Casey Harris’s youth, delivering the genre-defying hits “Unsteady” and “Renegades” and leading to a three-year global touring odyssey as well as a string of high-profile festival performances. VHS was followed by X Ambassadors’ 2019 sophomore album ORION, which they supported with an extensive headline tour of the U.S.  New songs “Adrenaline,” “Okay,” and “My Own Monster,” from their recently released third studio album, The Beautiful Liar, marked the start of a compelling new lyrical direction for X Ambassadors and is the first new music from the band since their hyper-creative multi-part project (Eg). A three-song effort released in early 2021, (Eg) found the band collaborating with a series of similarly forward-thinking artists, including Earl St. Clair, Terrell Hines, and Jensen McRae. The (Eg) project was a natural progression for the highly collaborative band, whose output includes producing and writing for global superstars like Rihanna and working extensively with Lizzo on her massively successful 2019 album Cuz I Love You (including co-writing and producing tracks like “Jerome,” winner of Best Traditional R&B Performance at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY® Awards).
