"Sam is an outgoing, friendly guy who is brimming with youthful energy. He plays guitar and drums, and wants to start a band with Sebastian as soon as he has enough songs together. However, he does have a habit of starting ambitious projects and not finishing them. Sam is a little stressed about the impending return of his father, who has been away for years due to his line of work."
— Description from Dev Update 12[1]

Sam (short for Samson) is an NPC and one of the twelve marriage candidates who lives in Stardew Valley. He lives in Pelican Town with his mother Jodi and his little brother Vincent. His father, who is in the military, will eventually return home and live with them as well.

Sam is an easygoing, friendly guy who likes to play guitar and skateboard. He wants to start a band with his buddy Sebastian but is unsure what type of music he should create. He enjoys taking walks and looking at scenery, and tends to describe what he sees in a whimsical way, perhaps showing a talent for songwriting.

Sam has a disregard for authority, not understanding why he should respect someone he doesn't really know, such as the governor. He's not afraid to break rules, and according to Sebastian, he holds the record for most community service hours in the valley because of this.

Sam has a part-time job at JojaMart , and while he doesn't seem to enjoy it that much, he does like their cola. On Fridays, he meets up with Sebastian and Abigail at the Stardrop Saloon to hang out and play billiards, though he isn't very good at it, often becoming frustrated, much to Sebastian's amusement.

While his father is away, Sam worries for his safety, hoping he'll return home in one piece, if at all.

  • "Honky-tonky country music" : Sam says that's exactly the style he's been thinking of for the band. He asks Sebastian who replies, "...Okay." He thinks that with his and Sebastian's skills they'll be a huge success. Sam then says that now they only need to find someone to play the drums.

Sam reassures him their dad will come back. After that Vincent goes off to continue playing, and Sam turns to you and confesses that he's not sure if their dad is ever gonna come back and that their troops are going down rapidly. He asks if you think he did the right thing by lying to Vincent. You then have two response options:
  • "You did the right thing. Kids should have hope." - He'll say that you're right, kids should dream and hope while they can.
  • "It's best to be honest with kids." - He seems a bit surprised at first, but then admits that kids will have to learn the world is cruel one way or another.

He then mentions that the band is coming together and they found a drummer, Abigail, and Sebastian really wanted her in the band.

Something between us 123

Special between us

You will meet Sam outside of his house. He says it's cold outside and sneaks you into his room to talk privately. He admits he's falling for you, and then his mom knocks on the door. He has you hide in the bed. His mom comes in and asks why he's sweating and red in the face, and Sam says he's just been doing push ups. She wishes him good night and leaves. You are presented with the option to:

  • Stand up. If you pick this one, Sam goes on to admit he has feelings for you and that the two of you could have something special together. You're then presented with the options to 'move closer to Sam' or 'walk toward the window'. If you walk over to him, Sam kisses you and says "I'm going to be thinking about this night for a long time."

If you walk toward the window (you reject Sam's advances), Sam says "I see...Sorry, I guess I had the wrong idea. I'll see you around.".

  • Stay in the bed. If you pick this one, Sam crawls into bed with you, kisses you, and says "I knew there was something special between us."

Marriage

Details
After marriage, Sam will move into your house with you. An alcove filled with his things (a bookshelf, guitar, computer and keyboard) will be built adjoining your bedroom. Sam will occasionally stand in front of his guitar and lament that he no longer has the drive to play it, but "that's fine."

Sometimes you will find him outside of your House and he'll tell you that he watered all of your plants or on rainy days feed all animals.

After the birth of your first child, Sam will happily comment that he's given up being a musician, and is a family man now.
