Small Change Romeos - "Dandelion"

After a 5 year hiatus the members of long time San Francisco Rock Band Small Change Romeos are gearing up to release their 4th studio album and follow it up with a number of Northern California shows this summer.
The album, entitled ‘Mystery Sings’ is a solid collection of material from sessions that span several years in the studio. It is arguably their most provocative and strongest record to date with songs that cover a broad range of styles from Roots Rock to Blues to Alternative.
Official CD Release Show to take place Fri. 6/24 at Neck of the Woods 406 Clement St. San Francisco, CA
The Small Change Romeos is a prolific and exciting musical outfit led by Singer Songwriters Chris James and Mike Ruy. A rhythm section tour du force backs them with Matt Berg on drums, and AJ Leighton on bass. Keyboardist, and upcoming artist in own right John Patterson, fills out the band’s eclectic sound.

The Romeos have been developing their craft for several years, both on stage and in the studio, creating a musical synergy between them that is undeniable. Being songwriters first, rock n’ rollers second, their multi-layered, contagious songs rally up audiences to follow them through emotionally stirred performances.

"SCR is a real rock band. They bring to mind an edgy, dynamic and classic sound that is missing in so much of today’s music. Great songwriting and awesome onstage performance and energy...” Working with them both on the stage and in the studio has always been a pleasure and an incredible experience..." -Phil Bennett, Starship


MORE INFO: In 2007 through 2009 their album “Fool’s Gold” attracted the attention of the majors and the band was able to secure a music placement contract with Gotham Records out of NYC. The record featured a host of talented musical guests including: Dave Rude (Tesla), J Bowman of (Spearhead) and Phil Bennett (Starship). Additionally, the Small Change Romeos have had plays on many West Coast radio stations including 107.7 The Bone, 91.1 KMUD, 90.1 Pirate Cat FM, and KGO 810 AM. They have also had music featured in commercials seen on various TV stations including CNN, and they have been broadcast on XM SIRIUS satellite radio as well as various other Internet stations. They have also been a featured act on the ongoing Comcast television show SF Sound. In 2005, the track “Not Like This” was chosen to be part of the SAUZA "LIVE ALL SUMMER" compilation CD that distributed 40,000 copies nationwide. The Romeo’s video and song “01.20.09” can been seen on a number of "call for change" websites including BushsLastDay.com and was one of Bruce Springsteen's personal picks for a playlist on E STREET SIRIUS RADIO. Together they have played hundreds of live shows and have done a number of corporate events for companies including KOHLER, and NET SUITE.

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
