Kevin Beadles’ latest single, “All Down for Austin,” is a fun-loving country-flavored composition inspired by the South by Southwest music festival.
(BERKELEY, CA, U.S.A) MARCH 7th, 2017 – This time of year, everyone is getting ready to head down to Austin for SXSW (South by Southwest). It was during a recent trip to the famed festival that Kevin Beadles was inspired to pen his latest track, “All Down for Austin.” The song is a country-flavored composition that showcases Kevin’s award-winning ability to pair hooky melodies with clever, entertaining storylines.
Kevin Beadles - All Down for Austin
All Down for Austin” was written by Beadles and his lead guitarist, John Foster. The lyrics capture their wild adventure traveling from Northern California down to Texas to perform in Austin for the first time. With 3000 bands converging on the “Live Music Capital of the World,” few things went as expected, but they still had a blast playing there. Kevin explains, “This song was born the night we gigged in a dive bar down on 6th Street and could barely hear ourselves over the roar of the party outside.”

That night in Texas turned out to be a serendipitous evening for Beadles, as his band got to meet popular New Orleans roots rockers, The Iguanas, and legendary drummer Brady Blade (DylanEmmylouDave Matthews). Blade not only is mentioned in the lyrics of “All Down for Austin” but played on the track. Kevin elaborates, “The next year, we’re back in Austin, this time sharing a bill with Brady. So, we ask him if we could give a shout-out in our new song. To our surprise, he not only agreed but said, ‘Hell, I’ll play drums on it if you want me to!”
A stack of talented artists accompanies Blade and Beadles on “All Down for Austin,” including top-notch Bay Area artist Loralee Christensen on backing vocals. Robert Powell – a guitar guru who’s worked alongside Peter Gabriel and Jackson Browne – lent his skills on the lap steel. “All Down for Austin” will be on Beadles’ forthcoming album titled, Be Young Today, due out in 2018. Beadles has a new music video to accompany this fun-loving, country-fried composition. So, if you don’t have time to trek to Texas, follow Kevin Beadles’ “track,” and experience SXSW by cueing up “All Down for Austin.”

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
