Red Honcho - Problems - Flyah Review

Now this is what you call hip hop.  I watched the video and noticed how down earth and real his lyrics are.  Red Honcho glides over the beat as if it was covered in butter and presents professionalism in a way that is unique.  His voice is definitely meant for rhyming and his flow is smooth.  The bass in the beat gives you that bounce that will have your head bopping in the matter of seconds.  His west coast vibe is impeccable, creative and catchy at the same time.  I think the subject matter is dope also.   The visual fits the song perfectly and knows how to present himself on camera.  He reminds me of some of the west coast legends like Mack 10.  Over all I think this song could become anyones favorite.  He shows off his wordplay and teaches people that it doesn't matter where you come from,  talent is talent.  If I had to rate this song I would give him a 5 out of 5 stars for being original, dynamic lyricist and for making such a chilled composition.  #Salute Artist Facebook:htt…

Jennifer Shiver - featuring Shane Hull-Muniz

"I am a daughter of a former lead vocalist for the U.S. Navy Band, who is now a composer and producer of music, media, and live shows. I grew up around music, and I love it. I have especially come to love immersing myself in to the writing portion of it. There is no greater thrill for me than to have a listener find joy and/or relatability in any of my songs. So, I can't express enough how grateful I am to anyone who takes the time to listen to my music. I'm always completely blown away and overcome with joy whenever I hear of someone expressing their positive sentiments toward any of my songs. I love communicating with people in this manner."

Back in early 2015, Shane Hull-Muniz, was sitting up late with no one else around, playing his guitar. And, as most guitarists do when by themselves – was enjoying a trip down a new musical road, which he was creating, utilizing a smoother Metallica-like picking pattern, through an ethereal sounding chord progression, topped of…

John Hickman Classic Rock

Classic and Alt Rock with a Retro Flair that truly takes you Out of this WorldA great mix of styles and insightful lyrics can be found in the upcoming album release "Remnants" from John Hickman There are so many struggling musicians out there working hard to make great music and get it heard.  Some work harder than others.  John Hickman is one such person, a singer/songwriter recently from Washington State who just relocated to Hawaii that breaks the mold by effectively “rocking out” by himself.  Forget your preconceptions of a boring guy sitting alone on stage with a guitar on his lap.  John shows that alternative rock can be achieved all by yourself.  No excuses!  Perseverance has been a good teacher, and John has plenty of that.  But he admittedly had some help from a few other musicians in putting together his latest album "Remnants", that is to be released very shortly. John Hickman got started a little late in life but has been hard at work since 2008 creatin…

Jerad Finck is Flyah

Ever the optimist, even in the midst of the darkest trials of his life and career, Jerad Finck wrote his powerful and provocative 2011 anthem “Runaway” about not giving up on your dreams, no matter how hard things get, and dealing with his issues head on instead of trying to escape them. 

The title of the track became the perfect metaphor for the wild success of the track, which has propelled the tireless Spokane, WA based singer and songwriter and road warrior to new heights in his career – including collaborating and co-writing tracks on his latest upcoming full length album with top producers David Hodges (Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry, Christina Perri), Steven Miller (Pink, Dave Matthews Band, Switchfoot), Andrew Williams (Five for Fighting, Jessica Simpson), and Nathan Meckel (Sara Haze, Autumn Hill).

Spiderdagod is Flyah

Born in Buffalo, NY, Nicholis has been writing since middle school, developing a love for the art form of words over beats, imagery and metaphors. As a teenager, he sat at the table watching other students rap their lunch away. The more he listened, the easier and easier it sounded, and the less he was impressed by everyone else. Later on in the school year, he went out on a limb and introduced his self into the cypher, captivating everybody. Soon after, he formed an odd obsession, to be the best. Nicholis would listen to beats and take his experience from the streets and create a harmonized puzzle. In 2005, he had dealings with a national record label that ended poorly, discouraging him from pursuing a  musical career. In 2009, his passion for music returned when he received an e-mail from an individual who was familiar with his music. Upon inquiring if Nicholis had released any new music, he realized that his impact wasn't the results he didn't garnish nationally, but the on…

Project Grand Slam - The Queens Carnival - Flyah Review

Project Grand Slam is an acclaimed jazz rock fusion band, led by bassist/leader/composer Robert Miller, combining the power and beat of rock with the complexity and improvisation of jazz, with a jam band sensibility. The band plays Robert’s original compositions plus selected unique covers of classic rock songs that Robert has re-imagined
Listening to this album brought me into a very relaxed state.  The perfect blend of instruments makes this one intriguing and it has a impact from the very first song.  I love albums that start off with a bang and the drum roll on Beyond Forever gives me exactly what Im looking for.  The first four bars on this song lets you know that you are definitely in for a nice ride.  This aura fits title perfectly and the guitars shows off the vibrant mood set with ease.  I love the way it reminds of riding with my Uncle Vernon in a old crown Victoria on the way to grandma's.  During these days my uncle would play songs like Green Onions by Booker T and The…

Cody Webb More Than a Little - Flyah Review

When hearing country music I look for a calming and inspiring feeling that no other genre can supply.  The mood has to be joyous and uplifting in way that will send you off into a deep daydream.  I have been pushing this review off for a couple of days but now I seriously regret that.  Cody Webb has the gift of word play in his Country love song More than a little.  He's a very special entertainer from South Carolina that has the talent of not only singing with great range but he also plays the guitar like ''no ones business''.  This song touches your heart from the first note and reminds of great artist such as Tim McGraw.  Up to this day I had never heard of Cody Webb, but after hearing his song Im sure he will have a lasting effect on anybody that gives his music a spin.   


                 As the guitar strums in the intro of this song I was not sure of what to expect.  It kind of had a rock n roll feel be his supreme Southern Voice blends the…

No Other Way for Chayah - Flyah Review

Inspired by great artists such as Celine Dion Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston; singer-songwriter, Chayah Miranda, is paving the way for the new generation of music. Chayah brings exceptional range and pitch; with talent that will blow the competition out of the water. When first hearing the opening track, "Higher" on her debut Christian Pop album, No Other Way. I was instantly amazed at how she motivates with melodies and verbal spontaneous emotion. The song is all about lifting someone out of any situation that may be in and help them see a route of positive signs. Chayah touches the ears with her sweet and enjoyable voice complimented with lyrics that really comes from the soul. 
In the CD entitled song, "No Other Way", a message given by Chayah expresses staying dedicated to God's word and vocalizes his power to wipe tears from the faces of children by also wishing for strength within them. I believe her voice on this record was heartwarming and somethin…

Mr Gaines - Want it all---Flyah Review

When first hearing this song it reminded me of many great hip hop songs from the 90's.  It has a great intro and the beat is similar to some of Nas and Mobb Deep tracks.  Bliss definitely has different style that makes you Want it all.  Her Voice is dope and different from most female hip hop artist.  Steven G is also a impeccable artist.  His flow cuts sharply on this beat like a dagger does a shield-less soldier.  I believe his deep mind and topics will always set him apart in this music business.  The more different you are the better the people of the real hip hop community will accept you.  If I had to rate this song I would give this a 7 out of 10 for originality, consistence and subject matter.  I am a real hip hop fan that has ventured away at times to hear what the main stream has and this song really brings me back to my true nature.
