The track climaxes with the lead hook of the chorus, a breathless high note backed up by the emergence of glistening guitars provided by Axel Oksby from Jakob Ogawa’s band.

SAMMY WILK Releases New Song “Livin’ Life”

Sammy Wilk is a 23-year-old singer, songwriter, producer, philanthropist and fashion designer who showcases an authenticity and purity of spirit through all that he does. Long before the artist even realized it, that authenticity was the driving factor in his musicianship: at each turn, he has made music that makes him happy, from Hip-Hop to Ska, Reggae, Pop and R&B. It has drawn a legion of dedicated fans; even as he’s taken time to redefine his sound and who he is as an artist. Growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, Wilk developed quite the eclectic taste in music. He fell in love with Hip-Hop at an early age, and by the time he was in middle school, a family friend introduced him to two things that would forever change the course of his life: reggae and a guitar. When he began to release music a few years later, he found himself naturally infusing island music into other genres of music, honing in on his own unique sound.
