Lisa Coppola is #Flyah

 



LISA COPPOLA is a dedicated, ambitious and gifted singer/songwriter.  A life long Jersey Girl with a four and a half octave vocal range, Lisa has a passion for music and has developed a style that blurs the lines between love-gone-bad country and heartfelt, confrontational rock.

Performing since she was 16, Lisa began her professional career immediately after high school with the The Party Dolls, a very popular, long running New Jersey party band fronted by three women.  At the same time, she set out to be a solo artist but soon formed the band Broad with John Zonars, musical coordinator for Saturday Night Live.  Their album BROAD: HUMAN CONFLICT (ArtBeat Records distributed by BMG/Aris) enjoyed a string of successes in Europe.  Broad did a media/concert tour of Germany in support the record and were received with open arms by extremely enthusiastic German audiences.  Back home, BROAD became a hot New York live act, playing regularly at Manhattan’s Brownies, A/k/a, Spiral, The Bitter End as well as appearing at the World Cup Tournament at Giants Stadium.

A Rose By Any Other Name, Lisa’s debut solo album came in late 2001.  Released on indie label Any Other Name Records, Lisa co-wrote six of the tracks featured on the album.

2008 saw the release of a Contemporary Country Rock EP, Wisdom from the Pain. Lisa co-wrote the title track with Mark Conklin and former Spin Doctor Anthony Krizan. Other tracks were co-written by John Waite, who featured the song "When You Were Mine" on the front page of his official European John Waite fan site.

Not just a songwriter writing solely for herself, LISA co-wrote "You Were Mine" with Mike Walsh on his band Departure's album entitled "Open Your Mind" selling over 40,000 copies in the UK and Japan combined (Escape Music.)

Lisa’s performing credits include backing vocals with Billy Joel on Saturday Night Live (“River of Dreams” and “All About Soul’) as well as Billy’s "All About Soul" video.  She has sung with Pat Dinizio (The Smithereens), Marshall Crenshaw, John Eddie, Glen Burtnik (Styx), and Mitch Malloy. She has opened for acts like the Smother’s Brothers and The Charlie Daniels Band and performed as a member of all female Beatles tribute The Sheatles, Heart tribute Queens of Heart Band and 1980s party rock band Atomic Mary.  She performs regularly with RB3: The Red Bank Blues Band.

An album of new songs is in the works, to be released later in 2015. The initial tracks are sounding like alt-country-blues, but the recording could go in any direction.  Stay tuned…

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.

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 …
