Morgan's Road is back with a hit!!





Morgan’s Road is a funk-infused jam band representing the best of South Carolina's sultry rock sound. Featuring frontman Ben Woodruff, master-class guitarist Cameron Allen, bassist Matt Chmielecki, drummer/vocalist Tyler Perry, Justin Banks on keyboards and percussion and Jeff Springs on lap steel and electric. The members of Morgan's Road are noted for their outstanding musicianship and camaraderie in sharing stage with other bands and special guests. 


Like many bands today, Morgan’s Road is a collaborative effort between artists who wear varied professional hats to maintain their momentum. In spite of this, they share a passion for all things related to music and an all-hands-on-deck mentality for establishing the band’s presence on the jam band circuit. 



Ben, Tyler, Cameron, Justin, Matt and Jeff have decades of collective performing experience, each with past engagements and bands throughout the Southeast. From jam band and beach music to straight-ahead jazz, bebop, Southern rock, fusion and progressive, this mix is evident in their sound. The band routinely gigs at local clubs, notable venues and regional festivals. Together and while working in other bands, they have opened for many well-established artists, including Bob Weir & RatDog, moe., Umphrey’s McGee, John Scofield, Steve Winwood, Hootie & the Blowfish, Sister Hazel, Kellie Pickler, Colt Ford, Lee Brice, The Marshall Tucker Band, Devon Allman and Lady Antebellum. 



The origins of the band were borne out of the passing of a longtime bandmate, bassist Chris Deaver, who was in the Kingstreet Band. In honor of their friend’s memory, Kingstreet and the Cameron Allen Trio came together as one band under the name Morgan’s Road. Soon after, Justin joined on having stepped down from the heavy tour circuit with the King Hippo band, and together, they bring an energy on stage that is palpable and a sound that resonates with fans whether they are playing to a crowd of a few hundred or over 23,000. 




In 2015, they debuted their first album, Topics of Love, and have received outstanding reviews and accolades from fans and critics alike. Topics of Love is available on iTunes, Amazon, SoundCloud, Rhapsody, Virgin Mobile, Spotify and Google Play Music.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
