m.oa.i.n. is a project by Samson
Samson was born August 25th, 1984, and raised in Ajax, Ontario, Canada. From a young age he was known to be a creative child, always gravitating towards drawing, painting, and anything he could do to explore his own creativity. As he grew into his early youth he became more and more interested in music, particularly playing the guitar. His parents always did their best to support his passions and as soon as he made it known they put him into guitar lessons.
As the years went by Samson would always try to get his friends together to jam but living in the suburbs proved to be extremely difficult because no one could take the terrible loud noise. Art and creativity was always a very personal experience so he would always continue on closing himself away in his bedroom working on a variety of things here or there. From guitar to drawing and doodles to poetry and very basic attempts at writing to web design and computer graphics. Although he had a very healthy social life being alone in his room spending his time being creative was always something he strongly gravitated towards. Even when his friends bugged him about not staying out later.
As the years passed Samson continued on his journey exploring his artistic passions along with an ever growing love for computers and technology. Slowly being drawn more and more into the depths of music production. As this passion and understanding developed, reading and learning more and more about the music/art industry and the business of it he decided to go to school for something to help him in that realm.
Samson spent many years going to and from Toronto to many different shows of a variety of kinds spanning many genres. Rock, metal, dance, house, hip hop, dubstep, raves, festivals, and many more. His fascination and passion for the organization, production, and just plain fun of it all growing tremendously.
Due to the reality of the business in Canada, it has always been a challenge to make a living in the industry let a lone a string of personal challenges he has had to go through during his young adult life. The economic reality of Ontario resulted in Samson seeking out greater opportunity elsewhere. This took Samson out west across the country to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Where he found the woman of his dreams, economic prosperity, and the means to build his dream studio where he to this day only expands on his creative ambitions and dreams.
