A first-generation Indian-American, Samica grew up in the Bay Area surrounded by traditional Indian music at home, while listening to Top 40 and Urban radio in the car and with friends. Inspired by the latter, she began playing guitar and writing music at a young age. When she realized that none of the artists that were influencing her looked like her, she became determined to change that. Samica began posting covers on YouTube, some of which were shared by the songs’ original performers, including Jesse Reyez, Marshmello, and Lizzo.
She released her first EP “Call Me” at the end of 2019 and has so far racked up over a million streams across her project. Her songs have gotten featured by THE FADER, who premiered her video for her first release, “Alright,” Earmilk, RnBass, and more. They’ve been on playlists like Spotify’s Lorem, Alternative R&B, and Fresh Finds, Amazon’s Introducing R&B, and Apple Music’s Acoustic Pop and more. In 2022, Samica began releasing a collection of new singles including an acoustic ballad, “Summer of 99”, an indie-pop track, “Happier Than Me”, and her latest anthem-like track “Stumble Home”.
Catch Samica on the Lagoona Stage on May 8.
