QUESTIONS

How long have you been doing country music?

I've been doing country music now for 8 years.


Do you feel that country music has room for growth?  In what ways can the industry benefit?

Country music has room for growth along the lines of recognizing the difference between traditional country and pop country.
I'm trying to bridge the gap between Nashville and Texas. Favor the twang sound in country music.

Who are some of the artists that give you inspiration?

I have a long list but here are some of those that come to mind. Bands  like the Eagles, Lynard Skynard, Rolling Stones and Alabama.
Artists like Alan Jackson, Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Joe Nichols, Pat Green and George Strait.

  

How did it feel to win a PRSA Award for Excellence and was this your first award?

Winning the PRSA Award was breathtaking! I was honored to receive such an award for such a great charity! My first award among many now.
 


I have heard of Akademia, How was your experience with them?

I had a tremendous experience working with Academia. I was skeptical at first but then realized the caliber of music stars they have helped in the music industry.


What inspired you to write the single "Girl Like You"?

While sitting at home one day I decided to put my feelings into action about COVID-19. Wrote this song about finding love during the pandemic and still living life in spite of the challenges.  A little humor about the series on Netflix, "Tiger King"!


What is the most impactful moment in your career?

A impactful moment was appearing for a festival with top acts in country music, celebrities and  movie stars. Dukes of Hazzard was a show I grew up watching. This was at John Schneider's Studio for an event called, "Bo's Extravaganza"!

If you could be anything else, What would it be? And Why?

Maybe run for a job In politics. Mayor, Governor or even run for congress. A way to help humanity.

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 HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

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

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  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
