SAMI CHOHFI (SAMI CHOHFI/BLUE HELIX): ”Since 2019 I Have Been A Solo Artist Playing Around The World”

Sami Chohfi

Sami Chohfi is an American artist of Brazilian descent whose professional career began 15 years ago. Influenced by 90s bands and The Beatles, his music is a balance of alternative rock, hard rock and acoustic folk compositions. As a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and composer, Sami plays not only guitar, but also bass, drums, ukulele and didgeridoo. His versatility and ease in moving between different instruments and styles led him to move to the city of Seattle (USA), where he set up his first band, Blue Helix, with which he came to Brazil for the first time for a series of shows.

Sami Chohfi began his solo career in 2019, and his connection with Brazil remained strong. Sami returned to the country five more times with different shows and tours, driven by the success of his songs on renowned radio stations such as Kiss FM, 89FM A Rádio Rock, and Antenna. Sami’s hits have already reached the mark of more than 30,000 plays on radio stations alone.

Metal Express Radio’s Bryce Van Patten caught up with Sami, and they talked about how it’s more effective to release singles over full albums, Sami’s international shows, his new music, and a lot more!
