Kevin Campbell - Only When It Feels Good #Flyah Review


Kevin Campbell’s love of guitar and music started in a sixth grade music class. Unfortunately this love affair ended shortly there after when an incident involving his smart mouth, and an undeserving classmate got him banished to last chair for the rest of the year.
Abandoning music altogether, Kevin navigated the oft taken route of athlete-turned-professional mascot-turned-actor-turned-filmmaker before a chance encounter with a shitty guitar in Montgomery Ward reawakened his love of music.

Though a couch superstar, playing and songwriting came awkwardly for a while. Then when playing his songs in front of an audience for the first time, he realized that this was the scariest thing he’d ever done. Suck in front of people. His friends even. He was hooked.
Kevin's songs draw from a lifetime of disappointments, regret, relationships both good and bad, bouts of frustration, and some actual real fun moments.
If pressed to describe his sound, Kevin would most likely say, "Back off man! I told you I don't know!"  So let's just say if Blues, Soul, Motown and Folk did the deed and had a baby... And that baby was given up for adoption, and raised by a sweet lovely deaf couple that always nodded with approval, though they heard nothing... Kevin's music is that baby.
When not playing shows around LA or occasionally making short videos about monkeys (www.Nacho.com), Kevin can probably be found not doing much. Just the way he likes it.

2018 brings the release of Bad Things, the third album from singer songwriter Kevin Campbell.
With the goal of moving away from the folky blues sounds of his first two albums, Where Do We Go from Here (2014) & Different Shades/Same Blue (2016), Kevin set out to explore new sounds and take on more musical responsibility. This album was conceived, written and recorded in 2 months during the spring of 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…

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

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 …
