Jerry Collins with a lovely Gospel Song






Neither singer or songwriter, Jerry Collins is a freelance lyricist that allows studio musicians to provide melody and vocals to create his lyrics into hit songs. One musician is a music teacher from London and the other is a well known recording artist.
Jerry Collins, a FedEx employee and ghost hunter, is a difficult person to review. Jerry is neither a singer nor a songwriter. In essence he is a newbie lyricist who finds studio musicians to sing and complete his artistic visions and put them into song. So how do we judge Jerry’s’ work? Do we look for brilliance, creativity and imagination in words. Are the lyrics a poem set to music? Do they perfectly blend and influence the music? Do they compel the heart and the mind?


Jerry’s content is so deep, real, and sincere, listening to him feels like exactly how we imagine a relaxed, candid conversation with him would go. No pretentiousness. No fakeness. This is not even outright poetry – Just pure, God-given talent. 



Jerry on the other hand has captivated me with his story about the love and discovery of his music. It is such a joy to listen to him rhyme in simple prose that can be easily understood by anyone on any level.



Again, if we go back to the standard judging criteria and components of good lyrics, we’ll see that they consist of the Hook, Originality, Appeal, Focus, Phrasing and Form. But we like to look beyond that when appreciating a lyric sheet or its lyricist.



So when listening to Jerry Collins’ lyrics, we ask ourselves the following: Do the lyrics move me, draw me in, pull on my heartstrings, make me laugh, cry, think, or react? Do they entertain me? And ultimately, are they believable? We have already positively answered all those questions.



Jerry has raised the bar with each release. This album definitely represents a journey towards a much more melodic sound and is full of depth and texture. Once again the lyrics are deeply meaningful, and yet with every line he keeps it clever and fresh. I think you can hear some major growth and refinement from Jerry Collins with each new 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?

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
