Amabel Fran "Great Artist" #Flyah

In Phases … From Poet to Performer
Amabel Fran Artist Biography

Amabel Fran
New York City has always been a “Melting Pot” of ethnicities, cultures and the arts. Thus, it is the perfect setting for a singer, songwriter and poet such as Amabel Fran to both reside and thrive. Fran’s stylistic recipe of R&B, jazz and hip-hop is simmering over within her own “Melting Pot of Muse.” She has absorbed this mix of genres over a lifetime - evolving in phases - from poet to performer.
Although Amabel now calls Long Island home, she spent her formative years on the main island of Puerto Rico. She gives insight, “I came of age in the suburbs of San Juan, surrounded by passionate urban art and working-class decadence.” The hard-knock settings and struggles of her tropical environment provided her with the grit, inspiration, and dedication that it would take to not only be successful in life, but to make it in the world of music, as well.
As a child and teenager, Amabel found herself allured by the vocal harmonies of salsa as well as the slow-tempo melodies of the Latin dance genre of bolero. Her musical influences were diverse and included artists across many different generations, such as the various musical acts of Fania Records. In addition, she often listened to bands such as Café Tacuba, Counting Crows and The Dave Matthews Band.
As early as 2002, Amabel was working within the performance art of spoken word poetry. She co-founded a traveling poetic troupe that brought musical accompaniment into their performances. In addition, they had integrated traditional Afro-Caribbean drums and other ethnic sounds into their shows. Eventually, Amabel moved from Puerto Rico to New York City. In 2007, she had joined a three-part harmony band that began touring throughout Brooklyn. She was both a vocalist and an instrumentalist, performing on guitar, djembe and the maracas. After three years, Amabel knew it was time to begin another phase of her musical life, but this time it would be as a solo artist.
“By 2010, my new goal was to weave an intricate tapestry of thought and rhythm into my own original music,” explains Fran. In early 2014, she had prepared her debut solo release, which contained ten all-original, self-penned tracks. The project, entitled A New Life, reflected the influence of her past spoken word poetry. The album also retained Fran’s distinct and passionate Latin flavor - as well, her intermingling of jazz, R&B and hip-hop now featured powerful sections of brass and bass lines. In the spring of 2014, she began releasing singles from A New Life to U.S. radio.
Looking beyond 2014, Amabel has an assortment of musical scores and musings awaiting completion and release. She plans to continue to harness her inimitable ability to meld introspective and emotive elements and tap into human emotions using semantics and soundscapes. As a poet, composer, storyteller, instrumentalist and vocalist, there is no other artist with such a recipe as the one stirring within Amabel Fran’s “Melting Pot of Muse.”

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.

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
