Ronda Rozon - For a While #Flyah Review


Having a love for music from a young age, songwriter Ronda Rozon has been writing original material for over 10 years now. She began playing open mics and continued on focusing on live performance . After encouragement from the people around her, she decided to record her debut album “From Within” in 2010. While making the record Rozon learned about layering tracks and production in general along with the realization that she had a natural gift for music arrangement. She quickly fell in love with the recording process as it opened up new musical horizons for her. The 2017 “For A While” album release is a testament to where she has landed with her current sound .
With the release of “For A While” Ronda Rozon brings an exciting new feel to some classic genres. Lush with addicting progressions, her indie but soulful voice draws you in. Her songs thrive with persistent pop undertones while the record boasts the aesthetic of indie folk anthems. Although the songs are diversely different, they are bonded together with her unique sound and lyrics of inspiration, hopes and dreams!
The first single and title track, “For a While” is an instant folk pop classic. Complete with smooth vocal harmonies, a pop groove that never lets go, and an infectious, cheeky chorus; the song seems to build and breathe as it plays on.
“In life I am ever moving, ever changing and have a hard time “Standing Still”. It was a personal challenge to myself, ‘Can I stand still? Can I walk on the right side? Trust that I am going in the right direction? "I tend to follow my heart and sometimes this leads me in the wrong direction. The front of the album has me standing on a railroad track looking forward to the future and on the back I am facing a fork in the road questioning which direction to go. I often question my decisions and choices in life and wonder why it seems so difficult to follow the “Status Quo.” It took me a long time to accept that my creativity has led me on a different path which requires taking risks  and heading down roads less travelled. The song kind of sums up my struggle to stay on the ‘Straight and Narrow’,” explains the songwriter of her single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real depth of where Rozon is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.
“I love both of my albums equally but feel this one confirmed my creative abilities in the studio. I feel like my skill level has improved in instrumentation and vocals.” says Rozon of her creative process for making the record.

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

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
