Carlin Tripp - Let Me Be Your Man #Flyah Review


With the release of The Shape of the Island EP, Carlin Tripp brings a few classic genres together to breed a sound all his own, while keeping things familiar and warm.  Lush with addicting progressions, an indie but soulful vocal approach, and plenty of pop sensibility, the record boasts the aesthetic of folk pop anthems.
The first single, “Stardust”, grabs you with its Americana rhythm, followed immediately by its growing vocal harmonies and southern fiddle sections. All this, of course, adds to the songs ability to breathe as it plays on.
“The song is really about looking towards the future with hope and optimism. An understanding that life constantly moves on and how we approach it is how we will experience it. It is a bit more upbeat than the rest of the album, but I think thematically it ties in all the elements that are talked about more specifically in the other songs; love, family, becoming a father, and being on the road. I think ‘Stardust’ is the song that really keeps things in perspective; it doesn't get as heavy lyrically as the other tunes, ” explains the songwriter of his single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding for where Tripp is coming from, the EP should be heard in its entirety.
“I was able to approach this record with much higher expectations and a slew of very talented friends. I also hired a great engineer who kept the process free and inspired. I think my sound also turned a bit folkier, a bit more country, and the styles I touched on with my first record became much more defined.” says Tripp.
Carlin Tripp started writing original songs while attending college in Santa Fe in 2003, and never really stopped. Throughout the next 6 years, the songwriter traveled the country by bus doing everything he could to keep playing music until finally settling in New Bedford, MA in 2009. Tripp began playing regularly around the greater MA area and eventually recorded his debut record Back to the Soil in 2013. From there he landed several gigs opening for nationally touring acts and continued with gigs all over New England. The artist, now settled in Boston, recently recorded The Shape of the Island EP, which became available on April 8th 2018 and is a testament to where he is at with his sound right now.
The Shape of the Island is available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets, and the artist already has gigs and festival performances lined up in support of his release.

Jack Pfeffer - Love Love Love #Flyah Review


With the release of the Blue Love album, Jack Pfeffer brings a fresh sound to some classic genres.  Laced with addicting guitar hooks, an edgy yet smooth vocal approach, and plenty of pop sensibility, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie pop rock anthems.
The first single, “Love Love Love”, pulls you in with its vintage guitar sounds, followed almost immediately its double tracked indie vocals, and its ability to build and grow as it plays on.
“Definitely kind of a lonely type love song. The song has darker sounding verses but an uplifting chorus. The whole meaning behind the album is just finding love and having close best friends. All written about my last year of high school” explains the songwriter of his single.
Although the singles do speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding for where Pfeffer is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.
“This album I’ve done more work with keys and ambient instruments. Not just the basics like guitar, bass, and drums. I wanted to make a more interesting sound that was different from my previous work.” says Pfeffer.  
Music was always a passion for songwriter Jack Pfeffer. Joining his first band in 2016 as a lead guitarist, he got a good taste of performing live and quickly realized he enjoyed writing and recording music much more that performing in general. Focusing his time an attention on honing in his songwriting, Pfeffer went on to teach himself the ropes of recording songs on his own. Putting together a live band to perform his original material came next of course. Releasing a few singles and an instrumental album throughout 2016 and 2017, the artist has been building towards theBlue Love album. The new release serves as a testament to where he is at with his sound right now.
Blue Love is available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets and the Pfeffer is planning a summer tour in support of his release.

Nicholas Lurwick - Stay for the Dog #Flyah Review


With the release of the Early Spring Blues album, Nicholas Lurwick combines a few classic genres to breed a sound all his own.  Lush with addicting acoustic progressions, a honest lyrical approach, and a pop sensibility, the record boasts the aesthetic of southern folk anthems.
The first single, “Soft Noose Trash Blues”, pulls you in with it’s almost 70’s classic rock swing and youthful energy, followed by tasteful lead guitar work and its ability to breathe as it plays on.
“Well, the story of the song is of a person looking for the softest noose and when he goes to hang himself it ends up breaking. So, if you really wanted to kill yourself you'd go through with the pain. People who have lived with suicide attempts have mostly concluded that they have regretted it. It's all about desperation, depression, the way we cope through our problems, the excuses we make for our failures, and how we sink to the bottom and reach for whatever we have left in our hat to fix the terrible situations we put ourselves in.  We’ve all been there and it's so hard to come to an acceptance when something has ended.” explains the songwriter of his single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding for where Lurwick is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.
“I think I found the right balance of dancing around a subject matter. There's the harmonica that I actually was always nervous to record with because I was afraid people would call me a copycat or something along those lines, but I have come to the acceptance for my love of harmonica and drenched it in this album. I'm just being myself throughout the whole thing and even if that means being overly folky or depressing but that's just something that is and can't be changed.” says Lurwick of creating the record.
Nicholas Lurwick has been writing songs since he first picked up a guitar at only 15 years old. With a want to write good songs, he performed and played with other musicians over the years but never really found a real partnership in songwriting. After picking up and then losing a drummer, Lurwick struggled with finding a band to perform with and went on writing and recording on his own. After years of honing in on his crafts and recording dozens of songs, the artist finally came into a strange sense of self realization through heart break and a mental breakdown. The Early Spring Blues album is a testament to his life journey to this point.
Early Spring Blues is available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets, and the songwriter is planning shows for the summer in support of his release.

Uber goes to court to remain in business in London

Image result for Uber goes to court to remain in business in London

Uber argued Monday that is should be allowed to keep driving on the streets of London, telling a court that the ride-hailing app has made significant changes since a regulator refused to renew the company's operating license last year.
Lawyers for the company opened their case in an effort to overturn Transport for London's ruling in September that Uber was not a "fit and proper" company after repeated lapses in corporate responsibility. Uber attorney Tom de la Mare said the ruling led to "wholesale change" at the company.
"It's profound and very much for the better," he said at the Westminster Magistrates Court.
The regulator had raised a number of concerns about Uber, including driver vetting, the way it reports serious criminal offenses and the use of technology that allegedly helps the company evade law enforcement officials.
Since then, De la Mare argued, three Transport for London inspections have shown a "perfect record of compliance." Uber has said it has also made significant changes to its leadership and has been proactively reporting serious incidents to the Metropolitan Police.
De la Mare argues the measures show a "change of a business that grew very fast to one that has grown up."
Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot will rule whether Uber is "fit and proper" to hold a license in the capital now, as opposed to whether transport authorities made the right decision September.

GE to spin off healthcare business, divest oil services

Image result for GE to spin off healthcare business, divest oil services

June 26 (UPI) -- Cash-strapped General Electric announced plans Tuesday to spin its healthcare unit off and sell its stake in oil and gas company Baker Hughes.
The announcement came on the same day Walgreens' parent company replaced GE on the Dow Jones Industrial Average index.
GE, which became an original member of the Dow in 1896, was a continuous member of the benchmark 30-stock index since November 7, 1907. The company was recently ranked as the sixth smallest member of the Dow by market value and carried the index's lowest stock price.
GE said in a statement Tuesday it will separate GE Healthcare into a standalone company and begin to sell off Baker Hughes.
"We are aggressively driving forward as an aviation, power and renewable energy company -- three highly complementary businesses poised for future growth," said GE CEO John Flannery. "We will continue to improve our operations and balance sheet as we make GE simpler and stronger."
Flannery said putting GE Healthcare and Baker Hughes outside its current structure will benefit all parties.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission began investigating GE's accounting practices in January after it posted a $9.8 billion loss in the last quarter of 2017. The SEC said it would look into the company's revenue recognition and controls for long-term service agreements.
GE said at the time it would take a $6.2 billion charge and set aside $15 billion to pay obligations held by its financial unit. The conglomerate planned to restate its 2016 and 2017 financial results as it adjusted its accounting procedures.
In April, GE reported first-quarter earnings of $28.7 billion, an increase of 7 percent.
