Ivar Sigurbergsson - All the Colours #Flyah Review


He was born in Iceland on a small volcanic island in the year when the Beatles released their first album. When he was ten years old, he and his family moved to escape the volcanic eruption.

At the same age, he learned his first guitar chords. That was the beginning of his musical career. Ivar and his friends founded their first band when he was about thirteen years old. They named the band “Make It” and often played at school dances. He and his friends would rehearse in the basement of his parents' house. Many musicians rehearsed with them there. The best known of them was the Icelandic musician, Bjork.
As a teenager, Ivar studied both the classical guitar and the electric guitar. He later took some private classical piano lessons. For a while afterwards, he taught students to play the keyboard and guitar. Ivar went on to graduate from university with a B.Ed. degree. 
A schoolteacher, he has taught music education at public primary schools for several years. 
Music is Ivar’s life and passion. He is a songwriter, a singer, and a guitar and keyboard player. The musical genre he plays could probably be classified as indie pop music. In addition, he enjoys listening to all kinds of music. Some of the musicians he appreciates include Bach, Paco de Lucia, Santana, U2, Bryan Ferry, Coldplay, and Adele. More than anything else, he enjoys producing music and playing for those who enjoy his music.

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…

In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
