Frenchie Tunes - Fire and Stone #Flyah Review



Relocating from Canada to the United States in 2010, songwriter and artist Patrick Bedore has always had a love and passion for creating music. It wasn’t until 2016 when Bedore decided to create the Frenchie Tunes project. Recruiting musicians and vocalists to bring different and unique elements to the project, Frenchie Tunes has grown into a whole new persona.  Growing with influences like Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan, the songs bring an array of styles to the table. The “Carried Away” album is a testament to where he is with his sound right now.
With the release of the “Carried Away” album, Frenchie Tunes takes some classic genres, and gives them a spin all his own. Laced with addicting progressions, blends of reggae and R&B undertones, and a soulful but indie vocal approach, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie pop anthems. Although the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds them together almost like a concept album would.
The first single, “Fire and Stone”, holds an air of the radio friendly pop rock powerhouse. Complete with catchy vocal melodies, beautifully performed female fronted chorus, and plenty of musical swells; the song seems to breathe as it plays on.
“Fire and stone comes from the two parts of my personality one wants to be singing in front of 1000 people putting on a a high energy live show (that’s the fire) And the other part is quiet withdrawn and spends a lot of time alone writing songs (that’s the stone)... and I think a lot of people feel that way trying to find a balance between putting yourself out there completely and hiding away. ‘I wanna be Fire, I wanna be Stone’”, explains songwriter Patrick Bedore of his single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding for where Frenchie Tunes is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.
“My music is always lyrically driven. I like musicians that pick up the guitar with purpose not just for the sake of writing a song... but because something is pouring out of them. I think my sound is always evolving especially as I get better at playing the guitar and other instruments. This past summer I broke my left hand and couldn’t play guitar for about six weeks however about a week and a half into being in a cast I was able to poke 3 fingers out of the cast and play the ukulele... I’ve fallen in love with that instrument and written some brand new songs that I’m really excited to get out“, says Bedore of the songwriting approach for the record.

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
