Lauren Brombert is #Flyah





Haunting alternative pop/rock melodies that weave a sonic web of darkness and light. Nimble word craft that conjures up images so vivid they play out like a film. Both delivered by a voice that is equal parts velvet glove and black leather jacket: sensual and edgy, soft and powerful.
From the moment 14-year-old Lauren Brombert (pronounced Brom-BEAR) stepped behind the mic in a garage on the outskirts of Paris to sit in with the local band Duty Free, both she and everyone else in the room caught a glimpse of what the future held. She was hooked—and knew what she wanted to do. But there were big obstacles and long detours. “The message I got was that being a musician—especially a rock or pop musician—wasn’t an ‘appropriate’ career choice,” Brombert says. But it was a choice she was compelled to make. And keep making.
After degrees at Haverford College and Yale University and on her way to becoming a field linguist, she finally stopped resisting her passion and came to terms with what she felt she was meant to do: bring music into the world. 
Brombert started her journey as an indie artist in Chicago. It wasn’t long before her vocal and songwriting skills attracted some of Chicago’s finest musicians as band members, including bassist Bob Lizik (Brian Wilson) and drummer Ed Breckenfeld (Jim Peterik). Demonstrating she had “a knack for crafting alluring folk-rock melodies” (Jim DeRogatis, Chicago Sun-Times), her debut CD, From These Stones received critical acclaim and was chosen by Performing Songwriter magazine as a Top 12 DIY. 
In October 2015, award-winning artist/songwriter Lauren Brombert unleashed the single, “Once Bitten (Never Enough),” which won First Place in the Rock/Alt category of the Great American Song Contest—and was a finalist with a special shoutout from the judges in the UK Songwriting Contest. At its core a vampire long song, the dark-and-twisty passion-pop power ballad is also about Brombert’s relationship with music. The previous year, her alt-pop single, "Love's Carousel," received an “Outstanding Achievement for Songwriting” award in the 2013 Great American Songwriting Contest as a Top 5 Winner in the Adult Contemporary category. Most recently, she was again named as a finalist in the 2016 UK Songwriting Contest, this time in the EDM/Dance category.
The daughter of a Parisian and a New Yorker, Lauren grew up on both continents and was exposed to both classical and world music. But it was a Beatles record in her parents’ collection that ignited her musical passion. Immersion in different cultures honed her ability to perceive, feel and express what others experience. Whether drawing from her own life or the lives of others, her songs paint striking portraits that feel intensely personal, exposing insights into the complexity of what it means to be human. 
In addition to being featured on several radio stations and in a variety of publications, her song “Walls” appears on “Big Fish little Fish, Vol. 2” (Sweet Pickle Music), a compilation of Chicago’s emerging female artists. Now based in Denver, she has performed in various parts of the U.S. and has done shows in France. She has shared the stage with such artists as Pierce Pettis, Modern English, Kurt Neumann (The BoDeans) and Vertical Horizon. 
 The official “Once Bitten (Never Enough)” music video was released in November 2016 following a worldwide premiere on Live in Limbo. The next single, "Intoxicating," will be released in March 2017.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
