2016 marks the year of esta’s first official album release.
Sam Gellaitry is an 18 year old producer from Stirling, Scotland.
He began working on creating tracks when he was 12 after hearing his older brother and friends creating sounds using Acid Pro.
Sam continued to experiment with making music on his computer at home in Stirling and decided to leave school at 16 in order to focus more intently on it. This decision was supported by his family who recognised his talent, enthusiasm and commitment to composing his own music.
Sam attended a music course at college for a short time and there gained more insight into the music business and how it works.
Sam has been working exclusively on creating music and playing shows since then. He has toured widely within Europe performing in Paris, Milan, Vienna, Basel, Bern, Brussels, Stuttgart, Freiberg, Bordeaux, Amsterdam and London.
Sam has wide ranging tastes in music and is influenced by a variety of different genres.
He has created a range of different tracks with his signature sound embedded in each and has over 100,000 followers on Soundcloud.
Sam’s debut EP “Short Stories” was released in February 2015 on Soulection. The EP was well received by all of Sam’s fans, as well as acquiring great reviews from many industry publications/blogs, including thissongissick who wrote: : “Gellaitry’s progressive sound is displayed in his debut Short Stories EP as his hard hitting bass sits perfectly alongside dreamy, atmospheric melodies to create his unique contrasting sound that is truly genre-defying. Each song on this project takes many unexpected turns as the producer constantly surprises with the shifting of a variety of instrumental layers.”
