About Sam Tsui

An OG of the YouTube music scene, Sam Tsui originally launched his career out of his Yale dorm room. From dorm to global stage, Sam has amassed 3.1M YouTube subscribers, coveted appearances on Oprah and Ellen, an international touring career, and multiple EPs. Known for his pop artist covers and seamless evocative medleys, Sam’s work ever explores new frontiers, with 2019 "Bey-thoven (Sam Tsui x Carnegie Hall Ensemble Connect)" and a foray into VR for his "Fixed" video. Sam’s 2019 #GoldJacketTour across Asia is Sam’s inspired musical gift to his ever-growing #Samily, encouraging fans to forgo self-doubt and flaunt their own "gold jackets."
