Anastasija - My World #Flyah


ANASTASIJA – the full name is Anastasija Ozueh, for everyone in casual life just Nastia. 
D.O.B.  – 1986.06.27

I was born in Lithuania, Vilnius (Eastern Europe). I started to sing in kindergarten, and right after that I went to music school to learn how to play piano (7 years). Then I took some private vocal lessons but it didn’t work well for me because my vocals sounded too ordinary. One day I met a vocal coach who changed my life forever… It was 2 years of hard vocal training and developing, working and improving my vocals. Up until now, there was always something to learn. My stubbornness didn’t allow me to give up. After that training I took part in and won many international singing contests in 3 different countries. I sang in many languages: English, Lithuanian, Russian, French, Hebrew, Spanish, Portuguese and etc. In 2008 I became a part of a band called AJ Project (which was renamed to AJ Elements) with my college mate Jurgis Mikalauskas. We wrote 9 songs together and a few of them had some success. All of those songs had to be in an album “First Pancake’’ which was never released. Then Jurgis immigrated to the UK and the band fell apart. In 2011 I immigrated abroad myself and it took me a long way to move to my dream country Belgium. Ever since, I have tried to take part in TV shows such as The Voice, X-Factor etc in Belgium but mostly in the UK, but it never worked. I was rejected always everywhere. I was thinking of giving up. But it didn’t break me because after a 6 year break (without any songwriting), I decided to come back and try again! I have tried every single path to achieve my dream! Nothing ever worked out for me no matter what I did, and I decided that instead of giving up and making covers I will write songs for myself and will come out with my own album. I will try to advertise it on the network myself as much as I can. Singing is the most important thing to me! I have only very few friends and I have no family, so music is the engine of my life. I literally live for music; I live to sing and create. Without that there is no other purpose to me. So I am ready to share with you every piece of my art… The funniest thing is that I listen to totally different type of music than I sing. I am totally into club music, DJ mixes, House music and even Trance at some point and etc. I can sing any style however I have a very narrow taste which brings me to the same thing every time. 
And so to stand out in front of other composers I decided to start mixing music styles in one song, to sound different, and I pay a lot of attention to my melodies and lyrics. In the past, I have written some songs which are not really related to my life but now I write songs which either tell a real story from my life, or a song that shouldn’t be understood literally yet there is a hidden meaning that relates to my life. I wanna change the world with my songs. 
I am very grateful for life, since I met Kristen and Calvin on one of the music websites. These 2 awesome people just are incredible! Both of them are so talented and I will never forget that they believed in me and my idea when no one else did! They accepted to take part in this project and I will always be grateful!!! Kristen became a good friend to me and she doesn’t just play piano, she creates all the main piano tracks for my songs, and she also helps me with lyrics! I am very proud of everything we have done together and so her music can be heard too! Calvin is the best guitarist in the World. We secretly gave him a nickname: “A God with the Guitar”.  We will make it together!

Tueazee - I Know #Flyah Review

Tueazee is an exciting music group based in Augusta, GA, and they have been making music for about a year now.  Releasing music under the J Tizzle Muzic label, the group recently unveiled a new, exciting single titled “I Know.”The song is a great example of Tueazee’s pure and uncompromising combination of new and old-school hip-hop, making for a driven, direct and fast-paced feel that knows no compromises whatsoever. Their flow echoes the work of seminal performers such as Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Common or J Cole, bridging the gaps between the unmistakable tone of the 90s golden age and the modern feel.Ultimately, “I Know” stands out as a perfect combination of old-school hip-hop and modern punch, making for a striking, professional and world-class production value.

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…

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
