LIFE ON THE ROAD

Hi folks, how’s your week so far?
Recently I’m answering lots of fans emails about my music life and how does it feel
on tour.Actually, at the moment I kinda miss touring, my life/career is usually
divided in 4:
1)MUSIC COMPOSITION
2)RECORDING NEW MATERIAL/NEW ALBUM
3)RECORDING FREE COVERS/SONGS
4)PREPARATION FOR TOUR/TOURING
All these parts do not include “REST”!I guess it sounds weird to you but for me it’s
the right moment to push hard and work harder.Anyhow let’s not go out of topic..
Touring for me is something very special, being on
stage really makes me feel free of any stress. It’s an overwhellming sensation that
you get inside yourself. I always tell my fiance and music partners that I really
love being on the road.Many times I feel like I was born for that..
Fans always see it like a fantastic thing to do.. and believe me it really is great
touring and meeting fans BUT what you are not aware of… it’s all the stress
musicians go through on tour.There are many things you might be stressed about,
example:
Being worried of making mistakes although you’ve been prepared very well for your
gigs.
Being afraid of going through technical problems that might compromise your
performance (although it’s not you fault) that in the end puts you in a bad light to
the audience.
There are so many things you can be stressed about BUT personally… as soon as I get
on stage, I really forget about any kind of stress. This is me though and everyone is
different.I empty my mind and I just know I gotta do my job and that’s all.
What really matters there for me is to play well and create a connection with the
crowd!Actually creating a connection with your crowd is THE thing you gotta focus the
most. If you prepared yourself for the tour like you are supposed to.. I’m sure
you’ll play well so just focus on the people in front of you! Involve them with the
connection you have with your band and become a part of whole.
Our job is not an office job, we are there to give something and we gotta give the
best we can, we gotta give the all the good energy we can!
I hope with this blog to answer all your questions.. my new album is finished and I
hope to meet all of you on stage as soon as possible.
Love you and thanks for reading!

SIMPLE THINGS CAN BE HARD

Hi there,
today I want to open up about something very personal..I’d say that.. this is gonna be a pretty
unusual blog.. and I hope to be helpful with some of you or your friends.

I guess not many fans know I have ADHD (Attention deficit/Hyperactivity disorder).. for those
ones that don’t have any idea what this is..in a few words: It’s a brain disorder marked by an
ongoing pattern of inattention or hypercativity/impulsivity that interferes with functioning or
developement.

In my case it’s mainly hyperactivity…I always had this but honestly I never cared until I
started living with someone…I could notice that I did not just bug others…but this thing
mainly started bugging me.

I don’t have problems focusing on things (thank God)..I’ve always chosen a spiritual path since
I was a kid, so meditation ,as years passed by, fixed any kind of focus gap a person with ADHD
might have.

For those ones of you reading that might suffer from this.. I can understand you 100% cos simple
things many times can be hard.. the simplest.. but ok let’s not make it a big deal! It’s nothing
too big or not treatable!! I never got any medication.. I’ve always chosen a natural way of
fixing things.. I prefer avoiding pills… In fact I like challenges that involve inner personal
growth.

So far.. I’ve lived in different countries and I always found a way to balance my problems about
this matter..sadly last year I started having more energy than usual.. so I decided.. I had to
do something different about it.

I actually started reading around and researched quite a bit…many things were leading towards
excellent results achieved with physical exercise in various intensities.
I gave it a shot and it’s 8 months now my life changed even more than ususal…the gym/exercise
really helps a lot and I have discovered how to turn ADHD from a weakness point into a winning
point!!

I noticed that while other people (average natural/no steroids) could exercise on an average of
3 days per week(high intensity training) sometimes using pre-workouts…I was able to exercise
5 to 6 days a week without any pre-workout! So ADHD is a natural pre-workout.. able to give you
an extra boost and a faster way to get your body in a good healthy condition. You’ll also be able
to achieve faster results that you will be able to see in the mirror!

If you are reading and you don’t have ADHD but you know people that might have this.. let them
read this blog. I’d like to help those people and everyone that needs help by sharing my
experience.

If you wonder:” where can I find the time everyday to go to the gym?” there’s no valid excuse!
20 to 30 mins per day never killed anybody! Sacrifice something else from your activities!!
Other QUESTION:”I have no money for the gym!”..There’s no excuse once again! It’s 2017 and you
can run outside or you can find so many things about exercises(every kind of level) on the
internet, youtube, whatever etc..

Take care of youself.. not only for your own good… but 1st for the balance/peace of others..
YOU have ADHD! Don’t let others suffer because of you! Like anything else.. if you wanna achieve
something.. it takes will power and big balls! Love you all!

PS: If anybody wants direct advice.. feel free to write me.. you can find me on my social
media..TWITTER, INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK.

CONNECTING YOUR SPIRIT TO YOUR BODY

What’s up folks?!
I want to reveal something about the last period of my life/recent events…
I’ve always been a spiritual person…I always studied many things for so many years and they are very precious for me in my everyday life.

I always believed that, connecting your mind to your body..whatever thing you
visualize..you will be able to achieve it.

I always meditate and make sure to spend the right time in the wild nature trying to connect/speak with the pure environment. Same goes when it’s time to write music.

If you read my previous blog “PUSHING MUSIC BEYOND LIMITS” you already know then how these blogs
can be connected…if you didn’t read, make sure to check it out!

I believe everything has to come within your inner self and your brain…
I’m in a pretty weird period of my life..I always had problems with ADHD..and until
recently.. meditating always helped me a lot to reach my balance.This time though..
it was not enough! I started having incredible/excessive energy inside me and I had trouble understanding how to relieve that.

I got into fitness/Body Building..(of course) I always had an active life..always took care
of my body, nutrition and I always made sure to make some kind of activity/sport…just..
this time didn’t seem enough to me..my energy was not getting relieved.

I subscribed to the gym and started exercising…first 3 times a week…then 4 times a
week..until I reached the level I’m at. Now I exercise on an average of 5 to 6 days a week.
I learned lots of stuff about exercise.. nutrition (also thanks to my buddies Ryan Howell
and Chris Simmons.) and for sure I learned to know my self from a different point of view
and even more.. I know my body or I’m on the right path to.

I had people wondering whether I get steroids or not…FOR SURE I DON’T! But I understand
normal/natural people don’t usually exercise 5 to 6 days a week with sessions of 1 to 1h
and 30 mins. It can sound very suspicious to many meatheads… BUT that’s the point!!

I’m 100% natural and most of my energy comes from ADHD but there’s something else… you
can’t exercise that much if you do not connect your mind/spirit/soul to your body.
It’s the same way I do in music! I just care about my vision and I keep it there in my
mind. I just don’t care about whoever surrounds me in this case…Even if I have 200 fellas
around me.. I visualize myself ALONE.

My muscles…my mind..lots of sweat/effort and 1.30 h of time to spend before getting the
hell out of the gym. I concentrate.. I connect my mind to the muscles I’m about to
exercise…I want to hear my body talking to me.. and for example when you are
on the bench doing bench press..you WANT to feel your chest screaming/burning.. it has to be
a connection..otherwise you might end up getting less results but worst of all.. making a
dead movement.

I don’t plan on being a pro athlete.. but if you gotta do something then.. do it well or
give up. Wars (as stupid as they could be) were never won using the word “kinda”..they were
either won or lost! Same should go for everything you do in your life..you can do
something.. or you can’t do something… both are fine, but when you do something “kinda”..
believe me it never leads you very far. This is the way I see life… a bit strict maybe..
Always try to connect your mind/spirit to your body.. you’ll see the difference as time
goes by…

This was another piece of my mind… some of the chapters of that book I call life.. my
life! I hope someone will find this blog useful..

Love ya.. Sam

Remember: NEW BLOG every Wednesday… and.. WE ARE ALL MAD HERE!

BACK AGAIN

What’s up dear family? Long time no see… or better it has been so long since I wrote last.

I honestly got lots of things to do and I’m trying to write a blog since forever.

I’m very excited to share with you What’s happening in my life in the last year now.

I’ll try to keep up with blogs as much as I can because in the end communication is one of the most important things an artist can have with fans. I have many things to tell you and I’d like to share my experiences around the world with you. I will soon write a blog speaking about the American experience (touring with SEASON OF GHOSTS) and the business trip Sophia and I had in Japan.

The 2nd song is “SALLY’S SONG” ( Nightmare Before Christmas cover) by SEASON OF GHOSTS! You can find the song SOG Soundcloud. Check it out. Mixed and mastered by ZOMBIE SAM.

Sophia and I finally announced we got engaged. We had be talking about it for some time. I’m happy we shared this with all of you.

It’s all for now so stick around because soon I will write here ASAP more often… I have to introduce the new singer that joined me on the new album and many more things.
