As multi-disciplined as a Leatherman, Sam de Jong learned his trade as musical director and producer of award-winning gospel outfit Parachute Band. He also wields a mean camcorder. His production and songwriting talent has seen him work with Stan Walker, Ruby Frost, Benny Tipene (including #1 NZ Radio Airplay single “Make You Mine”, and debut EP “Toulouse” which reached #4 on the NZ Top 40), Loui the Zu, Massad, Ezra Vine, and Sons Of Zion, as well as producing the platinum selling debut album for 2013 X Factor NZ winner Jackie Thomas.
