Music On Your Own Terms 120 - Kostas Sampanis - Atumune In The Mountains

This episode I am joined by Greek guitarist, Kostas Sampanis, to talk about his newly released EP, Autumne. We discuss the conception of the album, which Kostas reveals is dedicated to his late grandmother, something that I really connect to on a deep emotional level, as my grandmother was very special to me as well. In addition to his EP, we also talk about Kostas' philosophies on teaching music theory and technique which is his primary source of income. Finally Kostas shares his recent experience with cancer and how music helped his time in hospital to endure the pain he was in. Once again I want to thank my friend Ria from One Woman Company for turning me on to another fantastic artist, I was absolutely blown away by Kostas' music and playing as soon as I heard it. Make sure you subscribe to Kostas' Youtube channel to check out some really tasty jams and covers.

Joining me for this episode is an original member of Lez Zeppelin, solo artist, owner of Hidden Pond Productions and one half of the musical comedy duo Vickie And Nickie, Lisa Brigantino.

For the National Sexual Assault Hotline call 1-800-656-4673 or visit https://www.rainn.org.

In this episode I talk to Matt Connard about his studio project War Chariot. Since the interview, it was announced that War Chariot has broken up, however Matt is planning on forging ahead with his own solo music, and I look forward to hearing what he comes up with. In this conversation, we hear how Matt got into music, how the band got started and we get deep into some Swedish death metal talk, along with some guitar nerd conversation about amp tones. Matt also shares his background in business and some killer tips for musicians to be mindful of their long term goals, and think in a more entrepreneurial way about their business. Finally, Matt shares some extremely personal experiences with mental health, addiction and a traumatic event as a child, that he attributes his former lifestyle to. This is an incredibly deep and moving conversation, and I am extremely grateful to Matt for sharing his story, in the hope that it will give anyone struggling with mental health, a ray of hope to see that you are not alone and you can get through your difficulties, no matter how intimidating they feel.
