Tell us about you , your goals?
– I am Harri Huotari songwriter and producer from Finland. I started writing songs in 2017 for my own pleasure and made instrumental versions of the songs for myself, which I then played for my own pleasure. Little by little, I started dreaming of publishing songs for other listeners as well. I contacted a few producers in Finland so I could publish your first self-published song. I agreed to collaborate with Tommi A. Ahonen and decided to start publishing at my own expense as an independent artist. The goal is great, to make my music heard around the world.
The artist’s name came from the fact that my father would have wanted to name his son Sami at the time. That idea first became the artist name Sam_I, but because the name was hard to use and find on social media and digital music channels, the name was changed to Sam Eye.
The first demo was completed in the spring of 2019 and the debut single was released in June 2019. Sam Eye’s music style was also very quickly selected for EDM, Electro and dance music styles, but pop music and delicate ballads are also part of the production. Initially, instrumental music was made, but very quickly the idea arose that vocal versions would also be put into production. Visiting artists are used in the songs, but I myself will be singing in the songs and one of them is the song Rich Girl released at the end of 2020, where I sing the verse parts myself.
