Sam Pollard has kicked on past the half way mark and is 2,547Km’s through his epic 4,500Km Journey!

This tour and TV documentary will feature local communities across the country and the unique and interesting facets of small town Australia in a way that’s never been done before.

Sam has been performing and shooting with the crew from Planet Blue Pictures in each town along the way to raise money and awareness for Reclink Australia. Reclink Australia is a charitable organisation whose mission is to provide sporting, social and arts activities to enhance the lives of people experiencing disadvantage.

Sam will be next stopping over in towns such as, Koorarawalyee, Coolgardie, Myalup and Busselton to showcase the hidden gems and characters that Australia has to offer.

Sam started the tour with his performance at world famous Coco Cubano, in Darlinghurst, Sydney. We encourage all the locals in each town to come down and support the tour and the cause, and enjoy some great acoustic songs by Sam.

Other shoots on the tour will include the Bishop's Lodge Historic House in Hay, a show in Port Broughton at Palate 2 Palette, Mildura's brand new Arts Centre and lawn bowls with the World of Difference and Reclink crew in Perth.

The World of Difference team is currently taking bookings for radio appearances to promote the tour and shows in each town. Sam will be appearing on Southern FM on the 3rd of November and Triple R on the 6th of November. To express interest in booking Sam for a radio or media appearance, please contact

Sam Pollard began playing the piano at the age of five and has never looked back. Sam is a gifted composer and an accomplished multi instrumentalist. He plays piano, keyboards, electric and acoustic guitars, cornet, trumpet and trombone and has a voice that can brilliantly blend various styles to create the sound that is “Sam Pollard”. Raised in the UK but relocated to Australia, Sam's musical influences include the best of British rock as well as classical and jazz styles. Classically trained, with live experiences ranging from rock to big band jazz and improv, Sam's excitement for music shines through in his performances.
Sam completed his debut album "World of Difference" with his band and producer Jimi Maroudas at "Sing Sing" studios in Melbourne. This body of work is an album with multiple personalities. Sam Pollard is a guitar rocker à la Muse, a piano rocker à la Ben Folds, and occasionally a ska rocker à la Sublime. The currents change on “World of Difference” as often as the wind here in Buffalo. The result is an amazingly fluid and enlightening listening experience. Sam’s music crosses a number of genres from acoustic singer-songwriter to alternative rock and has been compared (amongst others) to Robbie Williams, Queen, David Blunt, Crowded House and Lior.
