Let me introduce myself…

My name is Sam Gearing. I have played drums for 13+ years and otherwise have been involved in music since I could bang a spoon on a tin can. That is what has led me to Ex’pression College for the Digital Arts. Musical expression has aways been my healthy outlet. I would have to say anger, trauma, stress and despair drives my music more than anything else. All of those emotions tend to be active in the sense that strong emotions call people to action. I look up to people who have truly represented this idea and moved millions with their words and crafts. Malcolm X is my favorite historical figure. He took reckless rage and moved people, he used hatred and condemnation which moved people, and when he decided to choose the path of love and acceptance, he moved people. All art is guided by the strongest of opinions and feelings. This is why my musical compositions tend to sound creepy and eerie and contain volatile lyrics.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/215590894″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /]
