My friend Sam was recently admitted to Albany Hospital. The reason I post this on my blog is because not only is he a terrific musician, he's also a great friend.
Sam also goes under his stage name Birthdays. Maybe you've heard his often ambient, but always dance-worthy tunes somewhere live or online. I've had the fortune of knowing him since high school, and he's always been devoted to his craft and to his friends. People like that don't come around everyday.
Not much is known as to why he was taken to the hospital, but the only important thing is we keep him in our thoughts as he stays there for treatment. We wish you all the best, Sam! - Shane
