Sammy White, 2020 Toyota Star Maker, has released her single Home (Feels Like You). This is the fourth single from Sammy’s Toyota Star Maker album Undone.
“I grew up on my Nan and Pop’s hobby farm just north of Townsville city. Between the five of us, with my mum and older brother, we didn’t have a lot, but always made do. To this day, Poppy is still one of my favourite people. When I’m home, I spend at least half my time with him. Unfortunately Nan passed in 2017. Her paintings coat the walls of our house and make it feel that little bit less empty. She was my number one fan (biased granny’s always are, right?). She really was something. I penned this song with Jarred Taylor back in 2018, shortly after losing Nan. I’ve always been an ‘emotionally fuelled’ writer. When we sat down for this write, it was the perfect pairing and timing, and the song just flowed out,” says Sammy.
In January 2020, Sammy became the 41st winner of Star Maker joining a very elite club whose alumni include Keith Urban, Lee Kernaghan, Travis Collins and Sam McClymont, and recent winners Brad Cox and Blake O’Connor.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Sammy “turned lemons into lemonade” remaining positive and focused, continuing to write songs, and finalise her Star Maker album. The album, Undone, includes the singles Drowning My Sorrows, I Can’t Outrun You, Lay It On Me and Home (Feels Like You).
