Sam Roberts established his first band in 1993. He first named the band William before switching
to Northstar three years later. The band built a reputation on the local scene but never landed a record deal. The band called
it quits in 1999. After Northstar's demise, Roberts spun his own demo called Brother Down. In 2001, he autonomously issued
The Inhuman Condition EP. The EP virtually dropped unnoticed but after Roberts inked a contract with MapleMusic Recordings,
he received heavypublicity in Canada. He then signed on with Universal Music which culminated into the release of We Were
Born in a Flame (2003). The album yielded "Hard Road" and "Where Have All the Good People Gone?" Chemical City dropped next
three years later. "The Gate" landed at No. 1 on Canadian radio followed by his sophomore single "Bridge to Nowhere," which
claimed a Juno Award in 2007. In 2008, Roberts dropped Love at the End of the World, which scored No. 1 on the Canadian album
chart. The album produced "Them Kids," a single that hit iTunes in the spring of 2008. Roberts issued Collider in the spring
of 2011. It served as the inaugural album in which he used the Sam Roberts Band moniker instead of Sam Roberts. The band's
latest effort is Lo-Fantasy, which was released in early 2014. Of his most current album, Roberts said, "Low fantasy is a
literary genre that takes place in a world very much like our own, but in which magic - or the possibility of magic - exists.
It's grounded in reality, but it's altered reality. You can still ride a train to Alberta, but there's a place for the supernatural
in this otherwise rational world - it's out there and we haven't tapped into it yet."

Sam Roberts Trivia
Did you know Sam Roberts originally had aspirations of playing hockey professionally?
Yep, it's true. He was already headed in the direction of the ice rink when an incident in Hawaii veered him off the course.
He was there to participate in a triathlon and stumbled into the bad part of town unknowingly. He was attacked, leaving him
injured and newly inspired. And, lucky for us and him, he chose a different career path, and still has all of his teeth!
