Mirko Filacchioni is #Flyah







Mirko Filacchioni is an Italian guitarist/songwriter.
He has just released an instrumental/rock EP "In guitar we trust" where he combines his guitar with oriental instrument and brass.
Born in Rome in 1980, Mirko started to play the guitar when he was a child.
His real passion came out when he discovered the great hard rock bands of 70s.
He joined first of all some cover bands and then formed his band composing and playing unreleased songs.
He spent 2 years in the Rock Guitar Academy in Milan and he attended the Steve Vai's master class in Rome.
He is inspired by guitarists as Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Zakk Wylde, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani.
Thanks to the passion for these last 2 guitarists and to the difficulties in finding reliable musicians for his band, Mirko started his solo project, of which the EP "In guitar we trust" is part of. 
The particular combination between rock music, oriental instruments and brass came out from his passion for rock and the listening of 2 songs that are far from rock… Naruto Main Theme (theme song of the cartoon Naruto) and Tank! (theme song of the cartoon Cowboy BeBop).
Even though he is just starting out, he has an unusually strong command of his music and has a fully-formed musical identity

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
