Garth is #Flyah

 Garth Adam
Garth’s music is a mixture of his influences and life. Born in the UK, he spent his early childhood in Africa and Fiji before his family settled in Australia, where he eventually worked his way as a song writing bass player through a variety of Australian bands. He has also toured and performed in America and Europe, playing at venues such as CBGB's, The Roxy, The House of Blues and Irving Center to name a few in the bands Ether and TOFOG.
The EP begins with “Altitude,” which has a Brit Pop feel with a big harmony vocal chorus and some twinkly piano in the middle eight. The second track, “Overseas Highway,” is as it’s title suggests about the amazing road that goes over the ocean down to the Florida Keys. It was co-written with Shannon Wheeler whose family lives down that way and basically reflects a little bit of her homesickness. The third track, “Here Where you Are,” is  a quite spare track in the beginning with only guitar and vocals and then ends dramatically in a wave of backing vocals.
The songs were recorded in a studio where 90% of the equipment was made pre 1975. The producer Melvin Tree loves this studio because it can give you the sound of those landmark seventies albums recorded in studios like Sunset Sound in Los Angeles. In an age a samples he was able to use a real Hammond organ and Leslie Box, an original 1965 Ringo Starr model Ludwig Drum Kit and an original Fender 65 Reverb amplifier.
'Altitude' was recorded at Linear Recording in Sydney and produced by Melvin Tree.  Mastering was by Kathy Naunton at Db Mastering Camperdown Sydney.
Guitar, bass and vocals by Garth Adam. Drums by Theo Katsantoni. Keyboards and backing vocals by Brendan O’Brien. Additional backing vocals by David Kelly.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
