Sam Gates

Sam is the founder of Octocorn and has been an avid percussionist since the age of eight. Growing up in a tiny town in Oregon, he didn't have much to do or any neighbors to annoy so he spent most of his high school days practicing to bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Hawthorne Heights. After graduating and moving to Boise, Idaho his interests broadened into artistry, engineering, production, sound design, and creating a studio. He's wrapped up his degree with Berklee College of Music and is ready to keep on pumping out sick records.
