1 DAY IN THE STUDIO WITH SAM

Hi there,

Welcome to this blog! For all the new fans I’m ZOMBIE SAM a music producer/artist/visionary. I play in my own band Zombie Sam and as session guitarrist for the band Season of Ghosts. I write blogsto share parts of my life with my fans cos all of you for me are a big family.

I know many fans wonder “what does Zombie Sam does in his days?” and that’s what this blog is all about. I usually work everyday in my studio.. when I’m not on tour that’s how I spend my days.

Let’s get more detailed, cos I want you to feel like you are really gonna be with me for one day and sitting next to me keeping me company and having a tuour in my studio/world with this blog!

 

I don’t ususally have a precise allarm in the morning, I wake up around 9am on an average and right before getting in the studio, I usually shake my metabolism jumping rope on an empty stomach. It helps your body waking up faster and pushing your organism/metabolism into burning faster. Then..it’s breakfast time.. after that I make myself a black coffee without sugar of course, just to trigger my ADHD. What’s ADHD?

I wrote ablog about it not long ago so if you want read it here to learn more about the topic.

 

I always try to use my ADHD to serve me for what I need the most in my everyday life. If you find the key to balance yourself… then you will be able to turn the problem into a winning point. I have accessive energy so I ususally use it to compose/ arrange music, but anyhow.. I sit on my chair and before making any music I spend quite a few hours: checking my schedule, checking all the emails (amswering to all of them), looking at my social medias and answering fans’ messages or at least to a good part of the last messages I’ve gotten, posting on FB,TW,IG and answering all possible comments.

Like I always say..artists need to be humans 1st of all and they need top take care of those ones that make you grow and become popular. It happens that you might have busier periods in your life and I don’t say to answer to everyone no matter what.. but if you really want, you can dedicate the right time to your fans even if you are super famous/busy. Fans are your energy and your everything so there’s no excuse!! Just be careful cos whoever brings you upo.. with the same power can drag you down.

 

This job takes quite a few hours of my day and around 3 or 4 pm circa I can finally start working on music. So what do I do.. I check all my notes, I’m a very tidy person and I take notes of all my ideas.

Recently I’m working on some covers I know you are excited about! I want to pull out lots of content for all of you. You do really deserve that! The apart from new covers, I’m actually busy on Zombie Sam’s 3rd album(although the 2nd is not released yet) and the Season Of Ghosts 2nd album as well. I make soundtracks and adverts when a company asks me to but not right now. I’m really focusing on those 2 bands cos It’s the right moment to!

 

Trying to muiltitask all this usually and although it sounds like nothing.. believe me the clock from 3 pm directly hits 1 or 2 am like time lasted af few seconds! time really flies!PLUS consider that every now and then in between I gotta find the time to follow human tasks like: shopping.. food.. cooking.. the gym etc.. Everyday I don’t know how to clone my self do follow my own schedules lol!!

Anyway.. this is how I spend my days on an average when I’m not close to a tour.. cos if there’s a tour coming then the mess multiplies for 100 and we level up to incredible mess!!! LOOOOOOL

 

I hope you enjoyed putting your noses into my private life!! LOL I’m joking but I do really hope you appreciated the fact I shared something about my private life.

BE EXCITED for the music that’s coming!! BELIEVE ME YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!

 

Sam

THE REAL POWER INSIDE YOU

Hi there,
I feel so sad sometimes reading fans’ emails.. when they talk about getting bullied having a hard time at school or at work! It makes ma very nervous seeing all that. Let me tell you something…It’s about time I voice my opinion about this and I hope it will be helpfull for many of you. I just want you to get some good/positive energy.

 

Whoever is bullying you, usually ain’t the real strong person! In fact it’s always the other way around. Not everyone that looks though is really that though inside.

 

Behind the bully’s mask there’s always something hidden..many times it’s: INFERIORITY COMPLEX, LACK OF EDUCATION, LACK OF MANNERS, FEAR TO SHOW THEMSELVES FOR WHAT THEY REALLY ARE, FEAR TO BE CHALLENGED BY OTHERS and the most important of all.. NO SELF ESTEEM!

 

Try to read between the lines and you will see.. all those are bad points!So why do you think they are stronger? THEY ARE NOT! For weak people the best way of defense is TO ATTACK 1st! This way many times they trick you into believing they are the strong ones. It’s 100% the other way aroud. Remember.. who shouts louder ain’t the best…who hits harder ain’t the best either and just cos you get abused doesn’t mean you are the weak one!!

 

It’s the opposite and you should laugh about it… whatever the situation is! laugh about them in their face cos they DON’T KNOW ANY BETTER.. so poor them! YOU DO know something better so FIGHT BACK not with violence… use your brain and your words cos thatre’s nothing better than that! In the end they are the loosers so make sure to say this.. they are not superior to you.. they might just be bigger or whatever.. they are inferior to humans in general if they can’t respect others!!! They are THE REAL WEAK PEAPLE with 0 inner power!

 

I’d like top speak to each one of you that get through difficult times so if you just need an advice you can email me. I might be late answering but I always get the time to answer fans!

Take care!
Sam

 

 

 

 

AROUND THE WORLD

What’s up folks?

I’d like to share something about my experience around the world! I had the pleasureto visit quite a few countries so far… due to work or even “little escape”(from too much stress).I’m a European dude so I’m in love with a few places of the European Union..I’m in love with Austria and Vienna to be exact..I had the pleasure to live there for quite a few years, I love Germany, Switzerland, Belgium.. I like France.

 

I’m in love with Austria and Vienna to be exact..I had the pleasure to live there for quite a few years,
I love Germany, Switzerland, Belgium.. I like France..

 

Of course I love Italy..I’m Italian so I really love the place I was born/come from but I never stick long all the time I’m there. Recently I had the pleasure to visit Japan (which I found it INCREDIBLE) and last summer we toured the US with Season Of Ghosts.

 

I’m a fan of Sweden although I did not visit the country yet…What can I tell you about UK?..Very interesting country but it’s not really my cup of tea… I was always that kid growing up dreaming about Hollywood and California lol…actually the US in general and indeed that’s where I’m headed next I guess :).
I’d like to show you all the fantastic memories in my head of all the places I visited..One day I’ll upload tons of pictures from all those places.. there are so many other locations I want to visit.. I actually consider travelling like collecting things/countries or cities lolI prefer seeing it in that way.

 

How many places did you visit so far?

 

Comment on my social medias if you want to answer to this blog.

 

Find me on IG, TW or FB! Thanks for being around folks.. recently I posted a hint of the vocal lines Ryan Howell did on the cover of IN THE END (Black Veil Brides) we are working on. Check it here if you missed that. We are excited to show you our work.. so just stick around!

 

Love you

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

STARTING YOUR MUSIC JOURNEY

Very frequent question I get from fans?
“HOW CAN I START A BAND IN A PRO WAY?”

What’s up folks? I hope you are all fine! Let me give you a few tips about this matter!

1st of all: what kind of idea do you have about making a band? What’s your target?
For example my dream was to be a musician and doing it for a living <– Which I do not reccomend
if you think doing that is easy.. dreams usually are very difficult to achieve and many times
people don’t know what it really takes to be a musician as job…many can see just the fun part…
you have no idea how many sleepless night…how many times you’ll get shut doors in your face and
also people trying to drag you down. You need lots of effort to reach a “level” and after you
reach that guess what? you will try to upgrade even more and reach a different level.. so this
is a never ending job!

Don’t get me wrong! Music is my job and I’m very happy with my life! I just want to make sure
you rellay know what being a musician as job is like! I want to you be keep your feet on the
ground by always being realistic! I’m not trying to discorauge you!

So after I wrote all this I can give you a few tips that you should consider everyday
and using it as holy bible:

– HAVE A GOAL/VISION
– MAKE SURE THAT WHAT YOU DO IS ORIGINAL
– WORK HARDER THAT YOU COULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD
– “OVERDELIVER” IN EVERYTHING YOU DO
– NEVER GROW AN “EGO”!!! EGO= NO LONG CAREER
– BE HUMAN! ALWAYS CARE ABOUT YOUR FANS
– MAKE SURE YOUR PRODUCTIONS ARE VERY GOOD
– IMAGE=LIFE SO REALLY TAKE CARE OF THAT
I don’t think I need to tell you to gather good musicians right?

There’s much more I could tell you but that’s for advanced steps.. so if you wanna
start a serious band and get inside the music biz.. just follow these points above…

Other option: If your target is to play covers only, then just have fun and don’t get
too stressed ^_^, you still need to take care of lots of things but in a very easy way.
How to develop your band, dreams and follow all the tips I gave you.. well I can’t tell you
about that cos that’s part of everybody’s journey and it’s different for each one of us.. but
whatever you do, remember to enjoy every part of it! NEVER GIVE UP.. You’ll get to experience
many good and sad moments but NEVER GIVE UP believe me… I keep repeting this to myself everyday!

Love you!
Sam

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!
