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.

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 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
