Announcement - ApproachingNirvana - 04-20-2016 06:13 AM

Dear Friends, Fans, and Community:

We have an important announcement. After 6 successful years of producing music together, Sam has decided to part ways with Approaching Nirvana. We are looking forward to seeing Approaching Nirvana grow and prosper with the many new upcoming projects that are planned. Below are statements from Andrew and Sam.


Thank you all so much for your support. Starting out in music back in 2004, I would have never imagined that I’d be able to affect so many people’s lives positively through my music. And a huge thanks to Sam for accompanying me on this journey. I would not be here without him, and I would not be here without you. Together with Sam and with the friends & fans that we’ve made along the way, Approaching Nirvana has grown into something truly special. I am so grateful.

I will be continuing on with Approaching Nirvana. I’ve been working hard and new music is on its way! I am excited about a new chapter of my life and about a new evolution of Approaching Nirvana.

Your support has truly made my journey an amazing experience. I cannot thank you enough.



I began creating electronic music in 2006. It was something I did in my spare time for fun. In 2009 after asking Andrew to collab on a track I decided to follow that passion and figure out how to have a career in it. Thanks to your support I was able to do that since 2011. It has been such a rewarding and interesting adventure to have been on. I feel so lucky to have been able to share it with you & it’s what makes this so hard to announce.

After 7 years working with Andrew on Approaching Nirvana I’ll be leaving to focus on helping others achieve the same dream we were able to enjoy through the record label Ninety9Lives. I want you all to know just how meaningful your support has been over the years. It is the thing I miss the most being a part of the Approaching Nirvana community. I hope you all continue to show Andrew your full support as he carries on the journey with his vision for the music and brand. I’ll still be around, I’ll hopefully get back into making music, and I would love to hear from you. Your friend on this journey,


You can look for more news from Andrew in the coming weeks on new music, collaborations, merchandise, and other awesome projects.

Some closing thoughts from Andrew:
I wish Sam all the best in his future endeavors. I am excited about what’s next for him and I look forward to supporting his label.
I will be at PAX East in Boston this weekend. If you’re there, be sure to come out and say hi! I’ll be back on stream producing music on Wednesday April 27 on our Twitch Channel and I am looking forward to showing you what’s next.

Thank you. Approaching Nirvana would not exist without you.
