Danae - Good as Gold #Flyah Review


Danae is a pop singer/songwriter based in New York City. Her electro-pop goodness--much like chocolate, but for your ears--transcends the pop genre with varied production styles and nuanced meaning-filled lyrics.
'Direction', Danae's debut single, came out the same week as Beyonce's 'Lemonade' but the music lovers of HypeMachine sent the song to #39 on the Popular Charts. The next week, 'Actualize' hit SoundCloud and reached #10 on the HypeMachine Charts prior to it's commercial release on May 6, 2016.
She followed up the release of "Direction" with her singles "Actualized" and "Gold In the Dirt" in late 2016 and early 2017.  "Gold In The Dirt" has received a number of positive reviews since its release. The songs positive message about overcoming obstacles and pushing through has resonated with listeners.
Her single "Prove" was released in Summer 2017 in Europe and peaked at number 11 on one of the European Indie Charts.
Danae’s voice and writing have been shaped by her time spent living in Russia, Texas, and the Washington, DC area. After moving to Nashville in 2013, she collaborated with music producer Sarin Kuruvilla to cultivate the trending pop singer/songwriter genre in Music City. From there, she was able to connect with Los Angeles-based producer Phil Danyew who has toured with Foster the People, as well as Secret Road producer AG.

DANAE

Nashville, TN  Music City newcomer DANAE is set to release her third single, “Gold in the Dirt,” from her forthcoming EP on June 10th. The single comes from the artist’s anticipated premiere EP, Direction, which debuted on July 1st, 2016.
Showcasing a different musical vibe from her first two EP singles, “Direction” and “Actualized,” DANAE’s third single reflects on the grit of her rise through the music industry. Following the success of her debut music video, “Direction,” which released with over 57K views in less than a week, “Gold in the Dirt” promises to be a chart topper.
"'Gold in the Dirt is about being in the trenches; it’s a battle cry," says DANAE. "It gives voice to anyone who’s hit a moment where they must choose to push through one more challenge, one more inch of resistance, to get to the goal they feel called to reach."  
The first single stemming from a partnership with Secret Road producer AG, “Gold in the Dirt” pushes boundaries and is intended to evoke a sense of dreams being dragged through the mud, with sights set on a far-off goal. Unique to this track is the pairing of DANAE’s positive lyrical stylings with AG’s alternative production style. Fans of Imagine Dragons and Sia will not be disappointed.

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.
