Sam Tsui has been hailed as an internet singing sensation, who along with his

production partner Kurt Schneider was among the first musicians to establish a

hugely popular music-focused channel on Youtube. To date, his videos, including

covers, medleys, and mashups, have amassed over 500 million hits on Youtube

alone, with each new release, including his anticipated debut original album

“Make It Up”, contributing to his ever-expanding worldwide fanbase.

 

His parents – a high school music teacher fromIowaand aHong Kongnative

whose mother sang Chinese opera – encouraged Tsui’s love of music and

performace from early on, when in middle school he began teaching himself

piano and landing lead roles in school musicals. As an undergraduate classics

major atYaleUniversity, Tsui teamed up with his long-time friend Kurt Schneider,

and together they began creating online musical content such as their “Michael

Jackson Medley” and cover of “Just a Dream” in which their creative

arrangements and Tsui’s unique, powerhouse vocal quickly brought both into the

public eye, amassing millions of views and the earning the duo of a global

community of fans. Tsui has appeared in magazines from TIME to In Style, has

performed on both the Ellen Show and Oprah Winfrey Show, and hosted behind the

scenes the web content for NBC’s “The Sing Off”.

 

Upon graduation Tsui relocated toLos Angeles, where he continues to create

innovative musical content with Schneider, and additionally began producing

music for his own, newly created channel, “TheSamTsui”. May 2013 will mark the

independent release of his debut original album, “Make It Up,” written entirely by

Tsui, and produced by Schneider. Both are thrilled to finally be taking their music

on the road, and bringing around the country the creativity and exuberant

performances viewers around the world have fallen in love with.
