Alli is #Flyah

Alli was born in Laurel, Maryland in 1996.  She started singing at the age of three and was writing short stories at the age of five.  Soon thereafter, she began writing poetry.  Through her creativity, she developed a passion for writing songs, and she would practice daily to memorize her songs so that she could perform in front of her family.
As the years went by, Alli's mother saw her daugher's natural talent develop as well as her dedication to her craft.  At the age of 10, Alli's mother decided to test her gift and expand her musical talent by getting her a keyboard.  Alli taught herself to play, as it gave her another channel to develop her music writing skills.  Her first song written on the keyboard was called "Too Late".  Her main influences at this age were Amy Lee of Evanescence, Alicia Keys, and Pink.  Alli says that lyrics have always been her most creative expression because words can always depict emotion to the listener, despite the music involved with it.
To challenge her limits even further, Alli received her first guitar when she turned 13.  Alli was fearless as she taught herself to play another instrument.  Alli experienced heartache and pain during this time, due to her parent's divorce.  She found it hard to explain how she was feeling in normal conversation, but it was always so easy to write a song that expressed her emotions.  Even though her vocal and musical talents became her "coping mechanism", she was determined to stay focused and devoted to her craft.
Alli met her producer, D'Aceman Johnson, when she was 14, and he immediately recognized her talent and potential to be a successful music artist.  Since then, they have worked relentlessly in the studio to start making her dream of being a singer, a realtiy.  With the help and mentoring of D'Aceman Johnson, Alli has continued to develop her talents.  In addition, she has done three years of School Open Mic Performances, she had a supporting role in a school play titled, "The Man Who Came to Dinner", participated in School Talent Shows, and performed at various receptions and social events.
Alli's sound is a fusion of Pop, R & B, Hip-Hop, and Jazz.  Her sound is found to be captivating to her listeners.  Her creative concept to her music is more than just an emotional outlet, but a means for her to showcase her passion for music.  Her dream is to move people through song and to develop a fan base that will connect with her music.  Alli says she has been blessed with the gift of music, but it is not her own.  It is to be shared with all who will listen, and maybe, she will be able to help someone or save a life, like music has saved hers.

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…
