Withering Blooms - I Never Loved Your Mind #Flyah Review


Referring to themselves as a band of brothers, Withering Blooms all grew up in the Pacific Northwest and consists of actual brothers Elliot and Calvin Dix(guitar, keys, vocals), Sigfried Wynkoop (drums, vocals), Jake DeGuzman (guitars, vocals), Austin Spraggins (keys, vocals), and Jackson Green (bass). Starting off as a college music project, the band attained their lineup and began taking things seriously. The chemistry speaks for itself on the newly released “Cast in Confusion” record, and it stands as a testament to where the band is with their sound right now.
Upon releasing the "Cast In Confusion" EP, Withering Blooms  manages to take on a few classic genres and blend them together bringing on a sound all their own.  Laced with psychedelic guitar work, classic rock progressions, an edgy vocal approach, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie rock anthems.
The first single, “Six Ways to Sunday”, immediately grabs you with its almost 70’s rock sensibility, followed by smooth vocal melodies, and a unique style allowing the track to breathe while it plays on.

“The song is about developing strong feelings about another person and being anxious and worried and uncertain of how that person feels in return. It's a self-doubting soliloquy on the confusion of falling in love. It's the climb before the fall. It’s the potent flirtatious beginning of a relationship that gives you butterflies. ” explains the band of their single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding of where Withering Blooms is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

“Our sound has grown from getting to know each other’s roots and styles and inspiration. Psychedelic jams that go on for 15 minutes where we find ourselves on the outer realms of our minds. This record represents our most raw feels with polished tones”, says the band of the songwriting process 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
