Who is Sam Cieri?
Cieri's indie rock is loved by his fans for his unique and fresh takes on songs. He also starred in the 2nd national tour of the Broadway award-winning show, 'Once.' In an interview with The Post dated December 2021, opening up on how he got involved in music and theater, Cieri said, “Well, theater not so much — that was more of an accidental thing. Music was always a thing. I started playing music when I was 13."
Speaking about getting his first audition, Cieri added, “I got an audition through a friend for a show called Rock of Ages. I did theater in high school on and off but never thought that I was going to go do that as a job. I went to the audition and got it. Then I was on a cruise ship doing Rock of Ages for seven months. Straight from that, to go on a tour for a show called Once."
Revealing the origins of his widely popular rock and music band 'Nicotine Dolls,' which he co-founded, Cieri shared, “John Hays is my best friend and we met doing a Broadway tour. We were touring around with a show called Once. During the tour, I knew coming out I was not going to do theater or acting anymore. I told him, When we get out of here we’re going to start a band.”
