EMORY FORBES is #Flyah




Emory Forbes a.k.a. Steven Sutton was born in Baltimore, MD on February 27, 1990. Introduced to the art of hip hop at the age of 12, he soon began to master the freestyle. At the age of 19 Emory Forbes enlisted in the US military and moved to Lompoc CA. It was there where a mutual friend introduced him to legendary producer Reckah (Rex Lee). Together they created Emory's debut project, and one of the best mixtape releases of 2011, "Live From The Bottom", which received high praise from many independent outlets. While still focusing on his music, he began to branch out into theatrical and cinema performance. For much of 2012, Mr. Forbes showed off his acting skills in live stage productions. This artist is so diverse;he can be described as a “renaissance man”.

(BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, U.S.A.) APRIL 4th, 2015 – You won’t see Emory Forbes wearing a golden ‘Toyota’ emblem and necklace. Emory ForbesAfter all, that’s not what it means to be in “Prius Mode.” Singer, artist, and actor Emory Forbes’ latest single is called “Prius Mode.” However, this is not just a song – but more a stylistic state of mind for this Baltimore native. With his new track and accompanying music video, Emory Forbes is shifting gears into “Prius Mode.” He is introducing his style via a song – all while explaining its mantra and meaning to a new group of growing fans.
The song’s lyrics tell the tale as the track begins, “It’s like everybody want Bugattis and Maybachs – I’m the only rapper in the Prius Mode.” The single creatively and cleverly compares the efficiency of the Toyota Prius as a vehicle to Emory’s own artistic diversity and efficiency.
“Prius Mode” is the first release from Emory’s forthcoming album self-titled, Emory Forbes, which is due out later in 2015.

Forbes’ upcoming album will also display his multi-faceted mix of talents, which include rapping, as well as vocal performances. The CD will contain several hip-hop based tracks, yet also some selections of urban and R&B flavored mixes.
Instead of “fronting,” Emory is right out front in the official music video for “Prius Mode.” Makaih Beats produced the single and Steven Q. Speilberg directed the music video.In “Prius Mode,” Forbes not only takes a few jabs at some of the overdone thematic hip-hop elements, at the same time, but also explains why he is different. In the end, the song offers a bit of a biographical view of Emory and his artistic outlook. It’s been a long road for this young, rising artist and actor – However, he’s built for high mileage and durability - after all – he’s in “Prius Mode.”

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.
