Big Sam’s Funky Nation has released a new single, titled “No More Shakes.” The band collaborated with lyricist Tara Stein on the track.
Big Sam’s Funky Nation is led by New Orleans native Sam “Sammie” Williams. According to a press release, “this single is the next step in Williams mission to keep the funk alive.
Regarding releasing music during quarantine, Williams had this to say: “There may be something to the fact that we can reach out to every household through technology. That may be our calling: Instead of being here and letting the world come to us, maybe we stay here and play out to the rest of the world.” (quote from Washington Post via press release.)
