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.

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…
