      • Sam spent the majority of his childhood receiving treatment and surgery for a rare breathing problem. He grew up breathing through a tracheostomy and as a result of many laser surgeries on his airway he was without a voice from a very young age. At the age of 19 he underwent a round of reconstructive surgeries on both his airway and his larynx, where vocal cords were succesfully fabricated from a skin graft taken from his thigh. He spoke his first physiologically correct words after waking up from his final surgery at age 20. What emerged was a deep, husky, incredibly recognisable voice. Sam was lucky enough to be introduced to James Earl Jones (The voice of Mufasa and Darth Vader) who initially thought he was taking the mickey. After hearing the story behind the voice James gave the sound advice "you must do something with that voice". When Darth Vader tells you something you listen so please contact amy@saysovoices.com for more info or to make a booking.
