Though I am not of a stature to say or write about Shri. Sam Joseph's class as a musician, I have every right to say certain things about him as a friend, brother and colleague. I know him since 36 Years. He was a front rank violinist with my mentor Shri. Kodandapani, Shri. M.S. Viswanathan, Shri. K.V. Mahadevan and Shri. Salil Choudhury. He was a conductor and arranger to Satyam and R. Nageswara Rao, the cream of composers of South Indian film Music. He served and is still serving the Cine Musicians' Union of South India in different status. He did not stop his quench for music with film music. He religiously learnt classical Carnatic music from Shri. Lalgudi Jayaraman, the doyen of Carnatic Music (Violin)
A true Christian to the Church, who believes in giving back something to the society, he organizes lots of musical shows to help the physically disabled and poor. He has introduced my sister Sailaja to the Tamil film Industry.
More than a very good musician, Shyaam is a Great Human Being who lives by certain standards and expects everybody to do so. I wish him long healthy and happy life.
God Bless him
S.P Balasubramanyam (S.P.B)
Playback Singer
Sam has composed several melodious Christian Songs in Tamil which have been sung by many leading film artistes. He is responsible for the Christian Cultural Academy and has a highly trained Choir and Orchestra who play at festive times.
Sam for all his fame, popularity and fortune, has remained a simple, modest and God - loving person. Sam had initiated scholarships to the visually impaired Children. He has also trained them to play musical instruments and sing his own compositions. The general public has appreciated and applauded these efforts.
In life, we make many friends; forget some; some forget you, but Sam and I Kept in touch with each other all these long years. I'm grateful to God that he has blessed both of us in several ways. May God continue to bless Sam.
