Ferni is Flyah

 

Ferni is an American singer-songwriter living in Houston, Texas.  He is a vocalist and guitarist whose music is a unique blend of driving alternative rock and folk rock styling, delivered with a raw, passionate honesty and intensity.
The founding member of the former Texas bands Of Love and Justice (Houston) and Brother Sol (Austin), Ferni is a veteran of writing and performing original music in numerous venues.
 
For his debut 2013 release Afterburn, Ferni performed all instruments, vocals and production entirely on his own. The results are impressive. 
 
A new untitled album is planned for release in 2016. Ferni's latest single - Change of Heart - has just been released at the end of August 2015. This new album "will be something more melodic and more gritty around the edges than Afterburn", according to Ferni. "I think people will hear that in the first couple of songs being released."





Some press on Ferni's previous EP release, Afterburn:

"Wonderful is a tremendously soulful effort on the latest album by Ferni, Afterburn; the track is one that needs little more than a piano and a strong set of vocals to succeed. The two elements combine to create something that would work well on pop radio (taking a similar tack to Sam Smith and Charlie Puth) as well as appeasing those that want something deeper and more intricate with their music. The gradual progression present in Wonderful ensures that listeners will be on the edges of their seats from beginning to end.

How Do You Like Me adds a set of drums to the mix, halving the overall run time of Wonderful in the creation a funky track that links together The Wallflowers and Tom Petty. The multiple layers of the vocals provide further depth to this composition, showcasing a wholly different façade to Ferni. The chunky bass line that plays at the bottom of the track makes this a sterling track for this EP.
Why Don’t You has a quick tempo and an overall sound that links together U2 and Neil Young into a noisy and furious effort that boosts the momentum of Afterburn considerably. Talk To Me is an epic composition in the vein of Muse and Pearl Jam, with a swirling eddy of guitars and drums providing a brilliant backdrop for the track’s vocals.
The digital version of the Afterburn EP contains a bonus track, Don’t Let Go. The track provides a wholly different sound to the end of the EP than it began; the wide array of tools that Ferni utilizes here makes this one of the more illustrative short albums that we have heard this year."

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.

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…
