Georgia Sound is #Flyah








 Georgia Sound is the up and coming singer/songwriter duo from Calgary, Alberta. Their style blends the rustic vocals and guitar of Ryan Roy, with the classical piano harmonies and dramatic vocals of Shannon Magee. The two received much praise and success after coming on the scene with their EP 'One Way Path', and quickly became one of Calgary's most anticipated new artists. They have spent much of 2014 writing and recording their first full length album 'Love Can Change' which has recently been released. They have spent a considerable amount of time refining their sound, and listeners can expect an album that is evident of detail and depth.


PRESS RELEASE

September 24, 2014, Calgary, AB. –Calgary’s indie/folk duo Georgia Sound announces their return to the music scene with the release of their single ‘Love Can Change’ to be followed up by their first full-length album in mid-October.

Georgia Sound, also known as Ryan Roy and Shannon Magee, are the Calgary based duo that have been stirring things up in the music industry since a chance meeting at a local open-mic night in 2011. Almost immediately after, they began crafting songs and arrangements, releasing their debut five song EP ‘One Way Path’. Those five magical songs won the hearts of Calgarian’s and music enthusiasts alike quickly becoming one of the city’s most anticipated new artists.

The two have been working tirelessly for the past year, self-financing their album but refusing to compromise on the quality. Both have taken on part-time jobs in addition to their full time ones, all while still finding time to perform and record exactly what they want to deliver, an exceptional album.

The album (of the same name) is a representation of the precision and detail oriented sounds of classically trained musician (Magee), blended with just the right amount of edge from self-taught guitarist Roy. On the technical side of things, they enlisted the help of former Los Angeles based producer Steve Dierkens and his team of professional musicians at Studio D (in Calgary). It is polished, passionate and evidence that Roy and Magee are fully committed to their musical career and are more than ready to take it to the next level.

For the release of the single ‘Love Can Change’ the duo has partnered up with local music start-up Muzooka.  Muzooka is an innovative platform that focuses on using data to connect industry professionals with up and coming talent more efficiently. Together with Muzooka, they aim to establish and promote Calgary as a city that is capable of producing brilliant talent.

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…
