The dedicated fan community at Plan-It-X Records are reporting that label co-founder Samantha Jane Dorsett has passed away. Details are sparse at this time, but Sam recently suffered a 50-foot fall in Berkeley which resulted in broken bones and extensive spinal injuries. Earlier this year the Plan-It-X community released a benefit tribute to raise money for her recovery.
Dorsett (the "Sam" from the label's slogan "In Sam We Trust") co-founded the Plan-It-X in 1994 with Chris Johnston. She also released music on the label under the name Peanucle. Dorsett was credited as a founder of Boxcar Books and a member of the Long Haul Infoshop.
Our deepest condolences go out to Sam's family and friends.
