about Skip


Skip Sams is an award-winning composer, performing artist, multimedia producer, and sober coach. Skip has over 16 years of recovery from crystal meth, alcoholism, and bipolar disorder. In 2004, he was diagnosed with HIV. For over a decade, Skip has been defying these diagnoses and helping musicians and performing Artis who have lost their technical skills, disconnected from their inner music, and whose spark of creativity has gone dark. It is his mission to help 10,000 musicians share their light and hope of recovery through 10,000 recordings and 100,000 performances by 2030. Skip last smoked a joint on April 19th, 2006, making his sobriety date 4/20.

Mission Statement

I help empower musicians and performing artists in recovery who struggle with being creative without the use of mind-altering substances by reclaiming and expanding their technical skills; restoring connection to a higher source of creativity and reigniting their spark to light up the whole world again.
