Samantha is best known for her voice-over animation work in the 1980s Cult Classic cartoon series “Jem and The Holograms” as the speaking voices of Jem and Jerrica Benton. Other voice-over credits include guest-starring on the original Transformers cartoon as "Ariel" in the classic Transformers episode "War Dawn" and in other episodes playing the role of "Elise Presser". Samantha was also cast as the voice of a young Peter Pan's mother in Steven Spielberg's feature film Hook as well as doing countless on-camera and voice-over TV and radio commercials.

 

Samantha began her professional music career at the age of seven. Signed to Nitty Gritty records she recorded her first record while living in Africa and then toured to support her single "Jimmy Jimbo" produced by Allan Goldswain and Mike Adams. At age 10 she and her family immigrated to America and Samantha was promptly signed to International Creative Management.

 

Samantha sang the theme song “In Your Eyes” for the anime classic animated feature film “Project A-Ko” working with industry talents Joey Carbone and Richie Zito. She then went on to be cast as the singing voice for the on-camera actress Ivana Milicevic, performing multiple songs on the film soundtrack for the movie Crazy Six starring Rob Lowe, Burt Reynolds, and Mario Van Peebles.

Samantha made her move to "Music City" Nashville, Tennessee in October 2007. She released her self-titled debut album in 2008 with co-writer producer Johnny Douglas. Songs from the album have been featured in numerous television programs including Smallville, Reba, Life Is Wild, Gossip Girl, America’s Next Top Model, as well as MTV's Laguna Beach, Punked, and My Super Sweet 16.

Samantha released her second original studio album Somethin' Good in late October 2011 with all songs written and performed by Samantha and produced by Dave Polich, Michael Jackson's keyboard programmer on the “This Is It” concerts. Her third original release “Hologram” is described as a "love letter" to her many devoted Jem fans. Samantha's latest recording project is a remix album titled "Hologram 2.0" produced by Jared Jones. It was designed as a complement to the 2017 release of "Hologram". "Hologram 2.0" is available on neon pink vinyl and CD from Samantha's website.
