Sam Price & the True Believers

Ogden Museum of Southern Art
Getting there
925 Camp St, New Orleans, LA

Sam Price & the True Believers was formed in December 2105 by bass player Sam Price (Honey Island Swamp Band, OTRA) as an expressive outlet for his original song-writing and singing. The band has quickly gained popularity in New Orleans. Their self-titled debut EP was chosen ‘Best Roots Rock Album of 2017’ by Offbeat Magazine. They were awarded a grant from the Threadhead Cultural Foundation to record a full-length follow up record, which was produced by Papa Mali and released in March 2019. Their music has been described as “relentlessly positive” and “so from the heart, it hurts!” Call it Soul-Rock, New Orleans Roots Rock, or Blue-Eyed Soul. The True Believers deliver songs that are alternately upbeat and rocking, slinky and funky, or mellow and poignant, with lyrics that are thoughtful and emotionally honest. The band seeks to use music to inspire, uplift, empower and unite. To celebrate our collective, shared humanity. “We believe that Love is the most powerful force in the Universe, and the very soul of humankind.” Purchase Tickets
