Sam Suggs was named New Artist of the Month by Musical America, soon after receiving the Gary Karr Prize for 1st place at the 2015 International Society of Bassists Solo Competition, at which he performed many of his own compositions. An omnivorous musician, he was named Concert Artists Guild’s New Music/New Places Fellow at the 2016 CAG International Competition, making him first double bassist in thirty-six years to join the CAG roster: “What Suggs proceeded to play quite simply boggled the mind.” (Oregon Arts Watch). As a collaborative bassist, he 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. At the 2017 Bradetich Foundation International Double Bass Solo Competition, the jury invented and awarded him a prize for "Extraordinary Creativity" following his solo recital.
