Stone Driver has Landed on Flyah

Stone Driver is a second act for all of us.  Individually we'd each played in various bands and lineups (including our drummer in some well established acts like the Whirlies and Everclear), but eventually moved on into more conventional career pursuits.

So we went on to become a soldier, a diplomat, a scientist and a pharmacist, but emerged from these endeavors (and from far flung places like Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan), finding music again, and each other to become Stone Driver.
Listen to any songs from our vast catalog of original material and you will find each of our respective--and diverse--influences. Rock, indie, college, blues, classic, are all present. But our collective sound is a thing we call Space Grunge. We love to bring the audience in close with hook and then knock them over with a crushing turnaround of power chords and driving rhythm. We put on a great live show and have a lot of fun with the crowd.

More than anything, we want to take another swing at getting out there and showing people in and outside of DC that we are a force to be reckoned with on the rock stage. We believe in our music and message and need only a chance to bring it to a wider and more diverse audience. We welcome opportunity to achieve this and you will not be disappointed when you select us to grace a stage.

We work tirelessly to put on an incredible show and to represent our venues and fans with honor. We will also pull out all the stops to pack each venue with rabid supporters and to reel in those who don't yet know us with our sound and energy.

Give Stone Driver a slot and you'll be asking us back--guaranteed.

Stone Driver "Descent" Album Review – DC Rock Live

"Do you remember when music was free from irony? It has been a while, but there was a brief period in my youth where every band took the approach of Stone Driver. They just wanted to rock out with straightforward heartfelt songs.

Music got a lot more complicated, and while better in some ways, we can be happy we still have bands that know how to rock. And Stone Driver does that plenty on this record, but offers a fair amount of variety within their sound. They have some psyche tones in ‘Prism’, offer acoustic moments, with different rhythms and guitar sounds throughout.

They are a fairly new band on the DC scene, but they clearly have veteran players that know how to bring out the best in a song. If you want thoroughly modern slacker attitude, there are some choices on this list, but for real rock fans, check this out."

Tueazee - I Know #Flyah Review

Tueazee is an exciting music group based in Augusta, GA, and they have been making music for about a year now.  Releasing music under the J Tizzle Muzic label, the group recently unveiled a new, exciting single titled “I Know.”The song is a great example of Tueazee’s pure and uncompromising combination of new and old-school hip-hop, making for a driven, direct and fast-paced feel that knows no compromises whatsoever. Their flow echoes the work of seminal performers such as Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Common or J Cole, bridging the gaps between the unmistakable tone of the 90s golden age and the modern feel.Ultimately, “I Know” stands out as a perfect combination of old-school hip-hop and modern punch, making for a striking, professional and world-class production value.

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. 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 …
