I talked with David Sampson about his spiritual path and professional work.

David Sampson, also known as sampsonic, is a musician originally from Chicago IL.   He began playing the guitar at the age of 11 under the tutelage of his father.   As a teenager David developed a deep love for the blues and took every chance to hear blues greats like Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray Vaughn.   The love for the blues turned into a love for jazz and by 1992, David had graduated from William Patterson College with a degree in jazz performance.

After college in New Jersey, David returned to Chicago and immediately scored a gig with legendary jazz organist, Charles Earland.   The Charles Earland quartet performed at clubs and festivals around the world and during this time released two recordings; live in Tokyo, and Ready and Able.   While in Chicago, Sampson began to develop his own music while working with many other great artists in rock, soul, jazz and house music.

In October 2001, David moved to Brooklyn NY to continue his musical and spiritual journey.  During the next 4 years he performed with many great artists including ceelo green, John legend, and Lauren Hill.   It was in Brooklyn that he began his practice of Chi Kung under grand master Roosevelt Gainey. 

David again moved in 2005 to Los Angeles where he currently resides.  Current musical projects include his band Sampson and Stone (http://sampsonandstone.com) and Craig Robinson and the Nasty Delicious (Craig plays Darryl on NBC's The Office).  He has also found love and is engaged to be married to Flavia Colgan.   His spiritual path has brought him to Jesus and he continues to practice, work out, grow and learn about life.
