Singer/Songwriter Sammi Rae Murciano Shines Light on Bullying Through Personal Experience with “REFLECTION”


The Song’s Message of Empowerment Comes From Stars Own Accounts of Hardships

August, 2017 (New York, NY) – With the National Center for Educational Statistics reporting that one out of every five students in the U.S. say they’ve experienced some form of bullying, the issue continues to have a powerful impact on children and young adults alike who look for outlets to express their pain along with messages of hope. Having gone through her own bout with being bullied however, Sammi Rae Murciano has turned her hardship into “Reflection” (OUT NOW!), an empowering track that looks back at her own experiences, along with a brand new EP set to debut this Fall!

“The line in the song ‘living everyday not knowing what was going to happen or be’ shows everything I’ve gone through getting up each and every day.” says the singer. But having been bullied gave her inspiration to help others that are going through the same thing. “There are many stories you hear about people being bullied and how they resort to harmful and drastic measures which could lead to dangerous outcomes.” But Murciano had the perfect outlet to channel her own pain, saying “I had my singing to turn to and it’s only made me stronger. As a way to escape from the feelings of being hurt, bullied, and hated on, I started writing in my journal…which turned into a source for songs that told my story”.

Recorded at The Loft Sound Studio with recording artist and winner of MTV’s “Making The Band 4” Donnie Klang and Artist/Engineer Matthew LaPorte, the incredible production value help further highlight its powerful message.

The Long Island native has been singing for three years, and garnering a ton of praise from audiences nationwide. As a recent review by Digital Journal stated – “Her breathy vocals are expressive, and reminiscent of a young Demi Lovato”, and for Murciano, singing is her passion.

Inspired by a wide range of talents before her, she has cited her major influences as everyone from Whitney Houston to Celine Dion, Beyonce, Rihanna, Adele, and many more. Her strong and soulful voice is well beyond her years at the young age of 16, and knowing that you have to believe in yourself and have confidence to be successful has been her continued mantra, especially showcased through “Reflection”.

On her early beginnings as a singer, she’s said of her musical awakening in school “I always loved to sing. I was in chorus, and had a solo. Being  in front of everyone performing, was an amazing feeling. I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life,” continuing “I would love to tour all over the world, and my dream is to perform at Madison Square Garden.” And with her continued drive and incredible voice, she certainly seems to be on the right path.

Currently working on new cover videos, and a number of live dates, she recently opened for Nick Cincotta and Rapta on their North East tour along with a live performance at Foxwoods Resort & Casino for the That’s Entertainment National Dance Competition!

With an incredible sense of motivation for following her true calling, Murciano has said she owes it to “Knowing that I get to get up everyday, and do what I love, which is singing”, and with that amount of drive, there will certainly be more to come.

More About The Space:


Many people have asked us if The Space is a Concert Hall, Lounge, Movie Theater or a spot to hold a special event. And the answer is: all of the above! The Space is the place where you can be different and unique. With some creativity and vision, you can turn The Space into the venue of your dreams and create a truly memorable event to last a lifetime. With flexible seating plans and state of the art light and sound systems, The Space provides an exciting palette for the creative producer, event, party and meeting. Additionally, The All Music Inc. Lounge at The Space is like a second venue inside the same walls, with its own bar that can accommodate up to 125 patrons and can be used for receptions prior to special events, as well as the presentation of musicians, comedians and other performers. The Lounge’s warm and inviting atmosphere is an ode to The Space’s former life as a movie theater, featuring a granite bar, lighting fixtures created from vintage movie reels and decorated with showcases which display antique film projectors. Plus, all of the shows on the main stage at The Space are also live streamed to be viewed at The Lounge at no cost to enter!


The Space was born with a different name on November 10, 1927 as The Westbury Movie Theater. The Westbury Movie Theater opened its doors to and audience that awed at the beauty of its Tudor style inspired auditorium. The feature for opening night was “Hula” starring Ciara Bow.

The Westbury Theatre was one of six theaters built by Salvatore Calderone in Nassau County, Long Island. The theater succeeded as a single screen house until it was matched in the late 1970’s. As patronage decreased, the theater closed its doors.


Over ten years ago Cyrus Hakakian and his partners saved the Westbury Theater from demolition. After viewing the stunning space, he was determined to preserve the magnificence of the original theater while repurposing the facility to accommodate all aspects of contemporary entertainment. With the installation of the state of the art lighting and sound systems, combined with the flexible seating plans, the Westbury Theater now enters a new chapter of its illustrious history as The Space at Westbury.

You can feel the magic the moment the audience sees the spectacular LED marquee enhancing the outstanding new façade. A graceful tower provides downtown Westbury with an architectural landmark as histrionic glamour returns to Post Avenue.


The excitement extends to the theaters south side on Winthrop Street with a new double story valet grand entrance, as the audience enters the threshold with its soaring ceiling while immersed in the glow of magical lighting; it is apparent that every detail has been consider to make a visit to The Space at Westbury a most memorable experience.
