Gerry Hyde - Christmas in Kentucky #Flyah Review


From ever since that he could remember, Gerry had sung with my mom, aunt, grandmother and whole family.  From the time that he could talk; Gerry sung.  He remembered loving Elvis Albums as a child.  Later on it was John Denver, Jimmy Buffet & Paul McCartney to name a few.  He have always been a fan of singer/songwriters.  He realize that Elvis didn’t write his own music, but who doesn’t like Elvis.

Later on Gerry was one of 3 or 4 boys who sang 3rd soprano in front of the high school choir while he was in grade school.  They were the finale when we hit our high notes having no idea what they were doing, but people seemed to like it.  It was Gerry's 1st public performance as he recalled; finding it to be funny how life events seem to move in circles. 

In High School, Gerry was kicked out of choir because he was a rebel and much too cool to sing.  He was very shy about music for many years thinking that was for sissies.  He used to try to confuse the choir director by singing with the other sections in the middle of his section.  Students could see her head turn sideways trying to figure out what was going on.  After High School, Gerry would apologize to her and they hugged.  She forgave him, so he thought.

While moving on to college, Gerry had found himself rooming with a musical artist that played guitar, drums, keyboard, and other instruments as well.  He was introduced to Pink Floyd too.  He was taught  how to play picking things up quickly.  His 1st song was Buffet’s “Son of a Sailor”, playing with 4 chords and not 3.

Gerry had got married & started a family. He would put music away for many years until divorce.  At that time, he dug his ole buddy out of the closet, and with no inhibitions or regret, he began writing a lot.  It appeared the rest might had became history; for the record, he never intended it to be that way.  Hearing music in his head, Gerry could pick out the chords in songs pretty much playing them on the spot.  He would dream music; In fact some of Gerry's songs were from dreams.  He would wake up and voice record the idea quickly going back to sleep only to find a ½ written song later on.  Gerry decided that he should take it up a level started listening to my music vs. anything else while hanging out.  Not out of vanity, as he just liked it better. Gerry has a day job and music became a hobby for him, one that he's passionate about.

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? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

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
