There are four artists with this name: 1) Samuel was a band from state college, Pennsylvania. they were active in the mid-1990's, releasing two 7" EP's (self titled and Lives of Insects) on the label Art Monk Construction. The band also released a split 7" with Texas Is the Reason on the then British label Simba. Samuel definitely played among the crowd of mid-90's 'post hardcore' or 'emo' bands. However, their sound probably owed as much to more straight forward 'indie rock' as it did to any of the member's hardcore roots.
