BIOGRAPHY
Her distinctive appearance, and crystal clear vocals have made Samantha Landers a well-known singer in the Durban music scene. She captures
audiences with her sultry sounds and soulful, rich vocals. Singing a variety of styles from contemporary, musical theatre, and pop, to country, jazz, and RnB, Samantha can entertain any crowd, and capture any audience.
 
Born and raised in Durban, Samantha began her music career at the age of twelve when she began classical singing training at school. Hungry to be
involved in anything musical, she quickly auditioned for every choir and took up playing the piano and guitar. She trained for five days a week and very soon, was seen as the school soloist. She performed at weddings, corporate events, and in musical eisteddfods in England, Ireland, and Wales. 
 
At seventeen, Samantha performed in the East Coast Radio Pop Princess
Competition and this gained her critical acclaim in and around KZN. That same year she took part in the Young Performers’ production of Grease where she tried her hand in acting and dancing.
 
Although music is what drives her, Samantha decided to study after school and she attained her Bachelors Degree in Journalism and Media Studies from Rhodes University. She satisfied her love of the arts by joining the university choir, taking up ballroom dancing, and performing around Grahamstown. Upon her return home to Durban, she continued with her singing training, only this time, she studied contemporary. 
With years of studying in both music and academics, Samantha now works as a vocal trainer in Hillcrest. She has pursued her career in music and has appeared in a number of vocal shows such as ‘Carnival Time’, ‘Sing It, Sista’, and, more recently ‘Shaken, Not Stirred’. She performs at many corporate events and has been seen in extravaganzas like ‘Night of a Hundred Stars’ and ‘Dolphins By Starlight’. Her live performances include the Vodacom Durban July, The Mr. Price Pro, Mrs Universe 2017, a number of year-end functions and awareness events for associations like The Sunflower Fund and CANSA, as well as having just returned from a corporate event in Russia.
