Semple Sessions – Tairey and Sam Conturo

Today, we have a special double-header edition of Semple Sessions. On the couch with us, we have rapper/producer Tairey and producer/sound engineer Sam Conturo. The talented dynamic duo have been working together on music since they were both back in high school.

Now, seven years and three mixtapes later, the two of them are rising stars in the local Pittsburgh hip-hop scene, having just returned from a sprawling tour of the country. Sam Conturo records and mixes new tracks at the ID Labs studio for some of the Pittsburgh scene’s most prevalent artists, and Tairey’s music that the two of them produce together regularly gets tens of thousands of views on Soundcloud.

In the session, we discuss how Tairey and Sam met and began working together, what they learned on tour, and how they began to take their careers to the next level.

As always, if you dig the music, please check out Tairey’s music on his website and spread the word through social media. Every click helps!

Thanks for watching, everyone! See you next time.
