Exclusive: October London VS. Sam Nash


You may not be familiar with or recognize the name Sam Nash but you’ll surely recognize the music.  That is because Sam Nash is the alter-ego of none other than the 13x Grammy-nominated soulful singer, songwriter, producer, and actor, October London.

Signed to Death Row Records in 2022 by the media mogul, Snoop Dogg, the South Bend Indiana native released his studio album, “The Rebirth Of Marvin.”

ThisIsRnB had the pleasure of speaking exclusively with the soulful singer on his  “Rebirth Of Marvin Tour”  stop in Philadelphia at Union Transfer on February 16th.

London, shared during our interview, is in his 70’s R&B era. As noted by many, his unmatched vocal recall and comparisons to some of the greatest artists like legends Sam Cooke, and Marvin Gaye, the multi-talented artist has cemented and owns his lane as top-tier in the music industry.

According to London, he will likely only do one more 70’s era album and move into the 80’s and 90’s R&B eras. And in a surprise moment, he mentioned moving into the Country music space and releasing an album under the pseudonym and alter-ego “Sam Nash.” Further sharing how Snoop Dogg named the ‘Rebirth Of Marvin Tour” because of his mega-hit chart-topping single ‘Back To Your Place” from the album.

Speaking about headlining the tour and selecting artists J. Brown and The Shindellas, London enthuses that “they are like a family” with friendship, love, mutual respect, and love of their respective music.

After our interview, we joined London during his show -set where he showed up and showed out, delivering an immersive show filled with originality, impeccable silky signature vocals, awesome music, and wonderful vibes. The show was nothing short of AMAZING!
