Bill Mcvail - Walk to the Light #Flyah


After years of low-fi, one-man band home recordings, a career change - and a mandated "garden leave" by his prior employer - gave Bill the time and motivation to write and record his debut EP, appropriately titled "Garden Leave" in the spring of 2015.  The EP covered a wide range of musical styles, from the progressive rock of the single "Breathe" to the uptempo alt-country "Redemption".  While Bill did rejoin the workforce later in 2015, he continued to work on refining his musical voice - as much as time and bandwidth would allow.

Bill found inspiration for his second EP, Walk To The Light, from the events surrounding the 2016 presidential election.  Frrom the rage and anger of a nation being pulled apart at the seams (Night Is Coming) to the solemn and hopeful post-election title track, the songs reflect a perspective of a person who has experienced many things, and is still looking to make sense of the world around him.

a nation divided.  no time to enjoy life.  world coming down all around us.
just walk to the light.
the inspiration for this album primarily came from the recent election, but the other songs have a message too. don't miss life.  stay engaged.
thanks for listening.

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.

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 …
