Samantha Maltese was born and raised in Huntington Station, NY. From a young age she always had a passion for music, from playing in orchestras as a violinist, writing songs as a guitarist and pianist, to attending as many different concerts and shows as she possibly could, regardless if maybe she had to occasionally miss a school day or two to see her favorite bands. Her passion to be in the Music Industry eventually brought her to The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY, where she graduated in May 2013 with a B.S in Music Industry. While there she gained knowledge and experience in Audio Recording, Artist Management, Music Law and Violin performance. While in Albany, Samantha wrote and produced her first EP, worked as a studio musician, and was part of a local quartet who played for weddings and other events. Samantha started off as an intern for Howard Rosen Promotion in 2011 while finishing up her undergraduate studies, and is now back at Howard Rosen Promotion in search of new artists with a great sound for radio.
