The man with the distinctive voice that touches the heart. Every song has its story and every story wants to be told. Samuel Schürmann knows how to perform the old hits in a classy way and how to recreate them with his unique sound. A stage performer through and through, he draws every audience into his spell and provides glamorous entertainment and music on the highest level.





The Berlin based singer and actor was born into an artist family and began performing on stage when he was only eighteen years old. He sings jazz and chanson as well as classic and musicals.

Samuel learned his craft at the Berlin University of Arts where he completed a degree in Musical/Show with double honors. Samuel is a National Singing Competition in Berlin laureate and constantly inspires audiences with his hit solo performance and numerous leading roles in musicals.

In 2013 he received the Kurt Sider-Preis for his portrayal of Albin/Zaza in the Musical “La Cage Aux Folles” at the Grenzlandtheater Aachen.
A few of his greatest musical roles are the baker in Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Into The Woods”, Albin/Zaza in Jerry Herman’s "La Cage Aux Folles", the Conférencier in "Cabaret", Mike Connor in Cole Porter’s "High Society", Woof in the musical "Hair", Action and Bernardo in Leonard Bernstein’s "West Side Story", King Herod in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s "Jesus Christ Superstar", Harry Driscoll in the German premiere of the musical "Heimatlos" as well as the title-role in the world premiere of the musical "The Elephant Man".



In 2007 he released his first solo album "Sunday – Samuel Schürmann singt Sondheim" - a great, musical stroll through the fascinating world of the American composer and Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Sondheim. Praised by critics and voted as solo CD of the month, his CD was a great success and sold worldwide to Sondheim- and Musical-enthusiasts. The most rewarding feedback Samuel received was in the form of a letter by Stephen Sondheim himself, who praised and congratulated the album and the artist as a singer and interpreter.
With "Wish Upon A Star" Samuel produced his first big concert at the "Konzerthaus am Gendarmenmarkt" in Berlin in 2009, benefiting the children's hospice "Sternenbrücke" in Hamburg and the children's cancer fund "Kinderleben" in Berlin. It was Samuels special concern to connect art and social commitment in one event. Bringing together more than 40 musicians, dancers and artistic co-workers he presented a show with hits from Swing, Jazz, Pop and Musical.



2013 he created his first jazzconcert in collaboration with the saxophonist Heribert Leuchter and his jazz quartet swing.it. After the first live performances, an EP was recorded and published at the Hansahaus Studios in Bonn with the title Both Sides Now, Samuel Schürmann & Jazz Quartett.



In September 2014 the album The Singer was published. The record release concert took place in Samuels hometown Osnabrück in the theatre where his father used to work as an opera singer. Samuel dedicated the album to his late father.
