Samuel Godin is a composer, sound designer, keyboard player and producer living in New York City. His original music can be heard on film and television soundtracks (HBO, NBC, PBS, Nickelodeon, Mirimax), album releases and remixes (Universal, Six Degrees, Schanachie, Putumayo) and on many familiar national television advertising campaigns (including Pepsi, Cheerios, Viagra, Olay and many others). He has written music for some of New York and LA's top production companies and advertising agencies (DDB, Saatchi & Saatchi, BBDO, McKinsey & Company) while also maintaining a busy schedule of performing, touring, songwriting, and working on independent projects.

As a performer, he has played keyboards, synthesizers and electronics (as well as writing, arranging, and recording material) for many influential genre-bending innovators such as John Brown's Body, Earthdriver, Karsh Kale, Mother Mallard, Falu, Dubfarm, and the FRKWYS Ensemble, among others. To date, he has performed in over 1200 concerts, touring worldwide which has given him the opportunity to share stages with luminaries such as the The Wailers, George Clinton, Jimmy Cliff, Carlos Santana, Keith Emerson, Zakir Hussein, Lauryn Hill, KRS1, Paul Oakenfold, Damian Marley, Noam Chomsky, Ray Kurzweil and Bob Moog.

Both live and in the studio, Sam is adaptable to many different kinds of technology. He often uses multiple computers, keyboards and musical effects on stage, but at other times may play an entire set with only a melodica or a minimoog. He has also had many years of experience as a professional studio engineer and Pro Tools mixing editor, and has recorded and produced a variety of talent. Not surprisingly, many of his recent projects blur the lines between studio production and live performance. Cases in point include collaborations with Earthdriver (a co-operative of artists, performers and social / political activists), FRKWYS Ensemble (a 5-piece all-synthesizer group). He has also produced original material and remixes for other artists using the alias Dubfarm. Some Dub Farm official releases include tracks for Tanty Records (UK), Putumayo Records (US), and remixes for Ryukyu Underground (Respect Records, Japan) and Krishna Das (Triloka) produced by Rick Rubin. One of his most ambitious remix projects to date was "Satyagraha Remixed", which started as collection of remixes inspired by the popular Philip Glass opera, and eventually led to an invitation to the English National Opera to help plan and curate an extended multi-media "live remix" event where he performed and presented the music at the London Coliseum.

Sam studied visual arts and film at SUNY Binghamton and then went on to graduate from Cornell University with a BA in Theater Arts with a concentration in music. He started playing piano at age 11, and wrote his first song at age 14. Although most of his work since then has been as a keyboard player, composer for soundtracks, or sound designer, he is currently producing materal featuring his own songwriting with lyrical content and a variety of guest vocalists.
