Closet Fiends Bio:
Sam Sadowski, aka Closet Fiends, was born and raised in Austin, TX and left her hometown only after “fucking up over and over again in school, home, court mandated rehab, etcetera,” as she says. Traveling the country on freight trains, hitch hiking, squatting and generally transforming from a teenage punk to a homeless “crusty” anarchist traveler, she eventually landed in San Francisco without a guitar or dime to her name. But unbeknownst to Sam, her mother had uploaded a youtube video of her performing a song that would later catch Sturgeon’s attention, who then showed it to Fat Mike. As urgent as any suspense-thriller, they tracked Sam down and accompanied her to a music store where she picked up a banjo and proceeded to blow Mike and Sturgeon’s minds. Mike immediately offered to record Closet Fiends starting that very day.
