Jeff Kenny is #FLYAH

 



With the release of Integrity Is What An Honest Living Pays, Jeff Kenny brings a classic genre to a new platform utilizing indie rock attitude and classic rock songwriting to create a new set of songs that hit home.

The full length album covers elements of roots rock, folk, and even hard rock without going far from its roots. Each song telling a story or painting a picture of times past, and each song seamlessly connecting with one another as the record plays on. From personal experiences, to social commentary on today's world, to really take the journey, listening to the album in its entirety is needed.

The first single "License Plate"  is an instant classic that grows and builds as it goes and leaves you with a fresh almost freeing feeling. Jeff uses his signature style of songwriting by working with acoustic and electric guitar sections through out the song to keep organic and open feel.

"These are tell tale signs of somebody who is a long way from home, and wondering why, thinking of the possible scenarios.  The narrator thinking back to when he was in the same shoes as the character in the song." explains Jeff of the single.

Jeff Kenny is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist thats been playing as a solo act since 1995. Hailing from Toronto, Ontario Canada, he later relocated to Vancouver in early 2004 where he recorded his first EP "Promised Land Blues". As he continued writing, he released Deep In The West in 2009, followed by High Lonesome in 2012. All leading up his latest 2015 release Integrity Is What An Honest Living Pays.

Jeff is also a student of esteemed songwriter Steve Earle.  As the songwriter says,  "My mission is to keep traditional forms of music alive, with songwriting elevated to a higher level as an artform"

Getting the kind of sound Jeff gets on this album was not easy either. It seems there are a few rules he uses for creating songs like these. "Traditional style song structure, picturesque visual lyrical detail, vintage guitars" says Jeff of his guide lines.

Rules we should all live by perhaps.

Integrity Is What An Honest Living Pays is available for purchase and download on digital platforms.

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'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 …
