Jon of Earth - Right Place, Right Time #Flyah Review


Performing and writing in bands for most of his life, Ohio native Jon Neiser decided to take the solo artist route in 1993 at the age of 22. Starting off as a wishful side project to his existing bands, it slowly became evident that it was something to take more seriously. In 2014, he began to focus on his recording and writing more steadily and over the next 3 years would release a full length record entitled Do Over. Having evolved his sound over time, the 2018 The Art of Drowning, is a testament to where he as at with is sound right now.
With the release of the full length The Art of Drowning album, Jon of Earth combines a few classic genres to breed a sound all his own.  Lush with explosions of sound, an edgy but fun vocal approach, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative rock anthems.
The first single, “Right Place, Right Time”, pulls you in with its fuzz tone surf rock sound, followed immediately by its vocal hook and pop sensibility adding to the songs ability to breathe as it plays on.
“’Right Place, Right Time’ was literally written and recorded in a 3 hour time span before I had to go to work. It wrote itself, hence the name. It’s a tale about how success is gained or not, by being in the right place or right time, or just knowing people. But I propose, that we can create our own right times and right places if we want to and then we'll find it. ” explains songwriter Jon Neiser of his single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding for where Jon of Earth is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

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…
