Aric Sampson is a talented singer/songwriter from Trempealeau, WI. Son of accomplished banjo player and banjo bridge builder Rick Sampson, Aric took to the guitar at age 4 and by 9 was performing publicly. In addition to vocals Aric performs with equal ease on guitar, mandolin, bass, and drums. In 2009, he released his first self titled CD of original songs, multi-tracking many of the instrumental parts as well. Since then, he has performed regionally in a number of venues including the Trempealeau Hotel, Acoustic Cafe, El Maro Vineyard, and Leo and Leona’s Dance Hall. In 2011, Aric was featured to perform on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Big River Radio Wave. He was a 2012 finalist in Larryfest’s songwriter contest, performing on the open stage there. Aric’s songwriting is an open coming of age journal, thoughtfully blending poetry and raw emotion against a skillful melodic backdrop.
