After gaining attention on American Idol in 2014, Woolf quickly debuted at #9 on Billboard's Heatseekers in 2014 with his EP Pretend produced by Grammy-winning producer Danny Blume (Iggy Pop, Jewel). For Backbeat in the Morning, New York's The Como Brothers teamed up with Sam. Inspired by pop, rock, blues, and hip-hop, the Como Brothers have established themselves as premier singer-songwriters working with industry legends like drummers Steve Jordan, Aaron Sterling and keyboardist Andy Burton. Their music has been placed in MTV's Real World Portland & St. Thomas, E! Network's Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Oxygen Channel's Best Ink, two Indie movie Soundtracks and a Canon Consumer Electronics Trade Show Commercial. Their songwriting has been recognized by receiving numerous songwriting awards.
Combining pop and rock with soul and hip-hop, drawing from influences ranging from Justin Timberlake and The Beatles, the six singles on Backbeat In The Morning showcase the musicality of the trio. Sam's voice, which Keith Urban compared to butter, shows a beautiful range. Matt Como laid down grooving bass while Andrew Como played guitar, drums, and traded off singing lead vocal with Woolf throughout the EP. "Coming Home" opens the EP with optimistic lyrics set to Sam and Andrew's dulcet harmonies amidst Andrew's breezy guitar strums and wistful harmonica blasts. "On It" is a smooth groove with funky guitar licks. The hip-hop vibe continues with Andrew rapping on "Diamonds on My Chain" while Woolf sings the hook. The groove rolls on with "Twisted" hitting a romantic three-part harmony finish between the trio aptly titled "Sunshine."
