Sammie Bush, (born in Boynton Beach, Florida on March 1, 1987) is an R&B artist signed to Dallas Austin's Rowdy Records. In 2000, at the age of 13, he released a debut album titled From the Bottom To the Top, which was originally through Dallas Austin's Freeworld Entertainment label. The album included the singles "I Like It (1999)" and "Crazy Things I Do". The singles had a generous amount of radio airplay.
Sammie is from Tampa, Florida where he attended Nuccio Park, Greco Middle School and William Dandy Middle School in Fort Lauderdale(1998-2000). Sammie went to high school in Winter Garden, FL at West Orange High School and graduated in 2005. Sammie was exposed to music five years after he was born. His mother, a former professional singer, sang in the church choir while she was carrying him. Fittingly, Sammie's first singing triumph also occurred at church; at age four, he received a standing ovation for his performance of "Troubles Don't Last Always." Music was never far from Sammie's mind, even at school; teachers would catch him singing under his breath during classes, but encouraged his talent. Eventually, a music teacher from Charles Drew Elementary, a nearby magnet school with a special performing arts program, heard of Sammie's vocal gifts and he transferred there at the start of third grade. Soon after, he formed a vocal group, the Wonder 3, with two junior high boys. Sammie's music teacher was so impressed with their performances that she sent a videotape of them to the television program Showtime at the Apollo, which led to an audition for the group and a 1998 solo performance for Sammie. Ultimately winning the show's finals, Sammie and his mother were contacted by Joyce Irby, an artist developer (bassist and lead vocalist for the 80's all girl band Klymaxx). Joyce signed Sammie and took him to Atlanta-based producer/songwriter Dallas Austin, (who Irby had previously signed as a songwriter and producer under her Diva One banner). Austin has worked with Monica and Another Bad Creation Samuel Thruston is his youngest child.
