Troy Lindsey & Eden Moody is Flyah







Troy Lindsey’s Emotive Wanderlust

Finding inspiration in one place isn’t rare, but the gift of travel can open up the creative doors to an endless amount of possibilities. Singer-songwriter Troy Lindsey has been lucky enough to land a day job that allows him to see the world, but when he’s not clocked in working on Sikorsky skycranes, he’s making music with emotion at the core. Anything can be a trigger, whether it’s the way the sky turns orange, a hotel room in Japan or firefighting down under, Lindsey has seen it all and has been triggered by those and more as he works on his upcoming sixth album. 

Following up 2014’s Cold Emotion, Lindsey’s upcoming album will be produced by Scotty Schultz and feature a diverse cascade of songs, along with a duet with country singer Eden Moody. That diversity comes from the music he grew up on. Waylon Jennings taught him how similar rock and country could be. He says, “The grit and stories were just tough and the emotion felt real while still rocking and not putting me to sleep.” While Jennings was a lesson in genre, Neil Young and Bob Dylan showed him the importance of storytelling through song. Which is what he always tries to employ as he writes about his travels whether they be about the few weeks he spent in the jungles of Peru, or some other adventure he’s been on. 

Like the time he was in Russia and was trying to fill the gap between cultures and penned “Cold Emotion.” It’s not always about the emotions felt when abroad, as “Dark Hour” came from witnessing all the school shootings in the states, and then there’s “Runners.” A song that has yet to be released, Lindsey assures listeners will know what it’s about from the start with the line, “Runners were born for losing, and losers were born for running, I find myself in the middle, of it all again.”

Troy Lindsey has been lucky enough to travel the world thanks to his day job, and through that and his other adventures - he’s been moved emotionally to write about his escapades and put them to song. Most of which can be found on his previous five albums, as well as on his upcoming release.

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
