Sam Suggs was named New Artist of the Month by Musical America soon after receiving the first prize at the 2015 International Society of Bassists Solo Competition, where he performed many of his own compositions. “An omnivorous musician,” Suggs was named Concert Artists Guild’s New Music/New Places Fellow at the 2016 CAG International Competition, making him the first double bassist in 36 years to join the CAG roster: “What Suggs proceeded to play quite simply boggled the mind” (Oregon Arts Watch). 

As a collaborative bassist, Suggs has performed at Chamber Music Northwest, Mostly Music, Yellow Barn, Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, and was named a Laureate winner in the open division of the 2016 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition. Most recently, at the 2017 Bradetich Foundation International Double Bass Solo Competition, the jury invented and awarded Suggs a prize for “Extraordinary Creativity.”
