Richard Scott Wallace - California Crazy #Flyah Submission


With the release of the full length Stab in the Dark album, Richard Scott Wallace combines the best parts of some classic genres to breed a sound all his own.  Lush with addicting progressions, soulful vocal approach, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative rock anthems.
The first single, “California Crazy”, pulls you in with its light hearted but honest lyrics, followed by its bopping rhythm and pop rock choruses. Most important is the songs ability to build and breathe as it plays on.
“California Crazy is just as it sounds. It’s a whole new level of crazy really. It’s about living the dream; something we’ve all thought about at one time or another. ” explains the songwriter of his single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding for where Wallace is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety. The record is a diverse body of works with everything from emotional piano ballads, to hard rock tracks with destructive lead guitar work.
Songs like “Still In Love”; a song about a marriage that ended badly, give off powerful performances in classic ballad style, while the title track “Stab In The Dark”; a song about taking chances in life and not giving up, brings an alternative feel complete with musical hooks and catchy classic rock attributes.
For Richard Scott Wallace, writing songs is certainly not a new concept. Having written and performed in his band The Truth Hurts in the late nineties, he’d performed in plenty of clubs in the greater Toronto area. It was more recently that he decided to take the reins and write his first solo effort. Using music as an output for emotional life experiences, and making the record on his own accord, the Stab in the Dark album is a testimony to where he is at with his sound right now.
Stab in the Dark is available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets and Wallace is always working on new material for upcoming releases.

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.

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

  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
