Sam Touchet

Favorite Quote: “You know, I’ll never forget my old dad.  When these things would happen to him… the things he’d say to me… ‘What the hell are you doing in the bathroom day and night? Why don’t you get out of there and give someone else a chance?’”

First job: Washing dishes and bussing tables at the old Night Hawk Steakhouse in Austin. The busboys had to fight over and stash butter plates to ensure our servers had plenty at their station. It got pretty brutal at times.

Favorite book: Lonesome Dove

Title of your debut album: “Old Fart In The Mirror”

Peanut butter or jelly? crema de cacahuate con trozos

Biggest kitchen fail: Hmmm. I’ll let you know when I have one.

Guilty pleasure: Mother’s Original Circus Animal Cookies

Hidden talent: I sing and play ukulele. I prefer Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, and Blaze Foley type music. My kids don’t think this talent is hidden enough.

What is your signature dance move? Head-shoulder circle isolation

Who would play you in a movie about your life? Forest Whitaker

Favorite cause coffee: Enchanted Rock
