Gavin Samples also known as "Sleepy Panda" is a native to Los Angeles. He has been known for his experimental background in score for movies and television working underneath the umbrella of artists such as Trent Reznor from "Nine Inch Nails" and Danny Elfman the mind behind "The Nightmare Before Christmas. Over the years he has blended his cinematic understanding of music and applied it to his upcoming concept album "Phantoms". In this most recent work he explores the idea of a phantom universe and takes you on a psych-rock journey through how someone has become entangled in different versions of themselves. They must confront the infinite possibilities of who they truly are to find a grander meaning. Throughout each song he goes deeper into the transparency of decisions and the relativity of how chaos can become a beautiful moment of clarity.

Our story begins in an unlikely land, two dudes appeared with guitars in their hands. They learned how to speak, then walk, then run, they enjoyed making music, they liked to have fun. While one played low, the other sang high, oh the places they’d go, all the songs they would write. They play really loud and they like to make noise, a super sweet band with two super sweet boys.
