Video's got 3600+ hits

Posted on June 22, 2012 at 8:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Well slowly but surely, my youtube attracts more and more people. I also noticed that my cover song also got quite some views in short time. Anyway, it encourages me to do more, more and more! The counter stands at approx 3600+ views in about a year time. I consider that a good thing, moreover since there is an upgoing line in it. If I take a look at the last 2 months I already had 1640 hits. I guess I need to work even harder to get things going more upwards in the search machines, but I am determined to grow and expand. The downside is though, that I still need more subscribers and likes and comments on my youtube. I wonder how I can gather those, besides trying my best... Maybe you can help me out there? I would really appreciate all the input! Thanks!

The new video

That is so cool! While I aimed at 500 viewers in a month, I only need 24 more to reach that goal and it all happened in only two weeks! Wewww, I guess I might round up the numbers a bit, so my next goal is a total of 750 views within that same planned month! Let's see if that is possible! Thanks all so much for watching!

Check this movie here!

The second album

Posted on September 30, 2011 at 5:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Well it is time to move on for a while now, but I got my back injured while I was in the middle of rewiring and reorganizing my studio. It has been 4 or 5 weeks now and the delay affects my work. I haven't been able to do anything, since the studio has been dismantled and because of the injury I haven't been able to change that. But as my health is progressing again, I am hopeful for the near future that I can continue with the second album again. First of course I will need to finish the studio setup, but after that I will work around the clock again to get the job done. I have been working on all songs for this album before, so I know where I am heading. That at least is a good start. Now becoming healthy and getting back to work as soon as possible is the primary goal. I hope to start this process somewhere in the next week again, that is of course, if my health will let me...

Charity

Posted on July 19, 2011 at 12:54 PM Comments comments (0)

I am so happy today! After an attempt, offering my music to a charity on doing something for their cause, which was a  foundation for people with down syndrom, I was so dissapointed not to hear back from them. Now I found a great project to be working on, which actually even comes closer in fitting to my own being.


I saw a message about an orphanage and was immediatelly touched by it. Not so much by what was written, but the unspoken sorrow and pain within. I always wanted children of my own and though I never had any, I always felt that all children are our children. We, the adults, have to take care of them. Not every child has the same opportunities, the same happy experiences in life, but they all should have. Wars, poverty, abuse and so on, it is all bad to anyone, but if it happens to children, something always snaps inside. I can't bare the thought, that we as a richer world, neglect and/or ignore the situations suffering children are in. I admire those who try their best to make life a bit more comfortable for them and trying to offer them a better future. I always did.


Now it is my turn to follow my heart in this, something I should have done already many years ago. I think it never is to late though. I might not ever had experiences that those children in need have in countries where things are not as comfortable as in the western world, but I know how it is not to have much money and that already is something that can drive me writing songs for them. I myself, come from a family that was pretty poor compared to the other families, and as a child it hinders growth and many positive perspectives are taken away from them. My family became the laughing stock on top of all sorrows. Poor people are being neglected and set back in chances and it does not serve any purpose to keep it that way. We can prevent stuff from happening, bad stuff. I mean, you got to do things on your own after you become independent, before that you walk the line and wait for that darkened future. It can go any direction from there, but it is not unusual situations change into worse. As Lao Tzu said: "Give a Man a Fish, Feed Him For a Day. Teach a Man to Fish, Feed Him For a Lifetime". To prevent bad going into worse, et us teach the children how to "fish"! I still had both parents, so I was taken care of, but the mind was always lonely and sad. The situation at my home was tense and I already suffered there, so children that did not even have what I had, gosh, I can not even imagine what impact that must have on their little hearts and souls.


Therefore, I am so happy to have found some good people that take care of them, but again money is a key there for situations turning into bad or better. I plan to make them a bit better. So I have decided, starting with one, followed maybe by others, to contribute in the line I think I can help. I would like to send a message to the world, stick my hands out and grab your heart, so you can feel what I feel, and through that maybe a little bit what they, children without parents, without money, fighting for survival, feel. It would be a great honor to serve those who are less fortunate and help me and also you to be the best parents we can be. For the sake of the children, since they carry our future on their shoulders. We can make it a better world, or just be selfish and one die with the thought we never really cared for anything but ourselves. So let's stand up, hold hands and form a team! I create the songs, and you donate through those songs to a cause that is creating a bit of heaven on earth. For the love of those that deserve better!


So, my projects need to start as soon as I get working on music again, which will be after I have set up my studio again. In a few weeks to a few months, I hope to be able to create and serve!


Until we meet again, and many, many thanks to those who will help the good cause!

Working on the 6th song for my CD "Dreams"

Posted on December 30, 2010 at 5:43 AM Comments comments (0)

Hi folks!


Well finally the CD is progressing in a better way. Due to several delays I had creating the CD, now the train is rolling towards it's final destination: The webstores.


Right now, I am working on a song called "The Sweetest Baby".  I wrote this song several years ago, and now finally decided to include it in my first release. Hopefully to be finished during the next week, which is week 1 of 2011. Four more tracks will follow, which will bring the total number of tracks to ten, before it will be available as a physical CD in my webstore(s). 


Besides this recording, I am also working on this website, doing my internet promotions, working on other songs, brainstorming the future CD's (still 5 CD's to record) and writing new material.


In this category, of which this is the first post, there will be updates about the tracks that I am working on for the CD's that will make it to the shops.


So now, back to work!


Sammy
