Welcome to my new webpage!  February US Tour dates are up, it’s going to be a fun month running around with Dave Scott Quintet and Tigran Hamasyan’s first Nonesuch release tour.  The record is called Mockroot and we’re all pretty stoked on it.


Iranian-American bassist, Sam Minaie, was born in Reno, Nevada. He has toured extensively around the world with Tigran Hamasyan and many other groups. Sam currently lives in New York where he frequently performs and records. Sam is also an accomplished mixing and mastering engineer.
