Jam Fish is dramatic, beautiful, and the chaotic result of a one man orchestra.

Its two singles 'Tape Deck Mimic' and 'Is That Sarcasm?' have already received critical acclaim.
'Exceptional, each surprise sends shivers down the spine' - One Tribe Studio
'Wildly impressive' - Matt L - A&R
'With an extremely melancholic and dense tone that arouses interest in the listener' - Rocknbold
The album was first created as a YouTube project where Higham showcases his multi-instrumental abilities in a series of multi-screen style videos. With the tracks now remixed and mastered, Jam Fish is a stand out record that keeps the listener engaged on a journey from start to finish.
In an ongoing battle with the future, and a nostalgia for the past, Sam Higham’s music is familiar yet unpredictable.
Higham’s solo project was born in a dark damp flat, in the outer suburbs of Wellington, New Zealand, covering subjects of corruption, conversation, confusion, loss, purpose, and helplessness. Taking on the role of an entire band himself, the 26 year old plays all the instruments featured on his upcoming debut Album ‘Jam Fish’ set to release late 2023.
Sam Higham first made a name for himself in Wellington's music scene as the drummer/keyboardist for alt rock band Pale Lady. After forming in 2016 the band released two well received EP’s and a collection of singles. In 2017 the band succeeded in winning NZ’s Battle of the Bands competition, leading to an international tour through Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.
Higham briefly featured on keyboards and guitar as a live performing member of pop-rock band SKRAM in early 2023. He also was a performer/session musician for solo artist Konarucchi, a featured artist on Sam Higham’s debut album ‘Jam Fish.’
