Sam Prekop is a well-known guitarist from Chicago, Illinois, United States. A longtime pillar in the Chicago underground community and architect of the post-rock sound, Sam Prekop first gained renown at the helm of Shrimp Boat before becoming the leader of The Sea and Cake, whose fusion of styles both in and out of rock was both creative and experimental while remaining highly listenable.
Sam Prekop (born October 18, 1964) is an American rock/pop musician in the band The Sea and Cake. He also has released four solo albums. Prekop was born in London, but grew up in Chicago. He studied at the Kansas City Art Institute. Back in Chicago, Prekop formed the band Shrimp Boat, which was active from 1988 to 1993. After Shrimp Boat dissolved in 1993, Sam Prekop and Eric Claridge formed The Sea and Cake, and recruited Archer Prewitt and John McEntire.
While Sam Prekop's primary creative outlet, the Sea & Cake, continues to incorporate more studio technology into its sound, Prekop's self-titled solo album thrives in a more organic environment. Recorded in Chicago with ex-Gastr del Sol guitarist Jim O'Rourke behind the board, the album sports a vibe that's loose and inviting, especially on the more upbeat tracks like the bossa nova-bopping opener, "Showrooms," and the funky "The Company.
