her career. Along the way she dropped her given name and became one of music's most influential and independent musicians, known as Nina Simone. Sam worked with his sister for over ten years but finally broke away to develop his own style that combined everything from gospel to jazz.


Sam went on to record for record labels like:  RCA, and Polygram, and has worked side by side with legendary artists like Miles Davis, Donnie Hathaway, Roberta Flack, Phyllis Hyman, and groups like, The 5th Dimension, and Main Ingredient.  He also starred in the feature film, "Ganja and Hess" (directed by Bill Gunn), and wrote the film's score.  That led to writing songs and scores for the film, "Weeds", and Jonathan Demme's "Philadelphia".  Sam "Magic Man" Waymon lives in Nyack, NY where he performs regularly throughout New York City and the surrounding area.
