Taylor Hewitt is #Flyah

Larry Fridie, former manager of James Brown the Godfather of Soul, whose clients have been involved with over 50 million records sold, stated. "Taylor is one of those kids that has that "It" factor. He will be a great asset to any record label.

William Whitney, sound at Full Sail University, stated. "It was a pleasure working with Taylor, He was a great performer as well as a professional artist off stage. It was very selfless for him to be willing to share his guitar with the act before him on Sunday. I would like to get him involved here at Full Sail to possibly record or play some Live Shows."

P. Melody is #Flyah

  Songwriter & Artist P. Melody, finds her voice! The West Virginia born songwriter/ artist began writing songs at the age of 7. She recalls, as a kid, she would put on dancing and singing showcases to entertain the adults; with all original songs she had written. As she grew up, writing was the only thing she didn’t “grow out of,” and upon entering college, she found out why songwriting was the love that she could never shake. “When I took my college entrance exams, the professor approached me with my scores and I’m thinking, “OMG please let me into school (lol).” But she says “Wow, you’ll succeed at anything that has to do with writing and English…you’re a genius.” I’m pretty much like huh??? So I’m in??” Undoubtedly, she was in and her confidence in her writing went up as a result. So what do you become when you’re a “genius writer,” literally? A super dope songwriter, of course! Taking a leap of faith to pursue her industry dreams, P. Melody has been abl

Double Vision is #Flyah

To those who meet them, hip hop artists Jarred and Johnathan Lindsay, better known as Mackamillion and Mr. Mackmore, present a Double Vision, and not just because they are twins. Their group is DV, short for Double Vision, and their music captures a bold vision of both simplicity and intellectual intensity. The vision is unmistakable in their latest EP, (Ra)w Form. Mackamillion explains that “Raw form is about finding the God in you or the Creator within yourself.” Even the title’s spelling, (Ra)w, has deeper meaning: that the process of creating anything, be it music, money, or even another being, starts from the same source, the raw energy that permeates the whole universe, known by some as God, or love, or universe, or Amen Ra, aka the Egyptian Sun God. And Ra, explains Mr. Mackmore, is “a primordial sound which holds a vibration of creation.” The duo hail from Venice, CA, and have spent most of their years shuffling back and forth between the midwest and west

My voice is versatile ranging from R&B, Dancehall to Neo-Soul music. I am a singer and songwriter. I am also a dancer. My favorite genres of dance are afro-fusion, hip-hop, dancehall and jazz. In the field of writing I’ve published two successful children’s books entitled, “The Lizard and the Rock” and “The Priceless Hogg Penny.” The first title has a soundtrack CD attached to it where the songs range from a Disney-like feel to pop and calypso. The themes of the song correspond to the themes in the book. I wrote most of the songs including the awarded theme track, “Free to be Me.” What´s the story behind your stage name? I wanted to keep my real name as my stage name. The producers of Grandpa Records thought that the spelling of my name was too simple. So they changed the spel

Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Raised in a small village in Italy , they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin , the heart of the indie music scene, performing at SXSW in 2013 and 2014 , and sharing the stage with international acts such as Atoms for Peace and Bob Schneider. 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 dropped a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled a boner and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connectio

OLIO is #Flyah

BIO - Three brothers from other mothers (and fathers) got together, from the OC, LA and DC, to create a miscellaneous collection of musical works aka OLIO. Inspired by everything from Black Sabbath to Barry White these guys stir up an eclectic blend of rock/pop/funk music and serve it up hot! Whether it’s songs about break-ups, make-outs, shake-ups or four letter words, Olio produces electrifying, positive music from their studio in Los Angeles, CA. On stage Arif Hodzic sings and breaks strings (sometimes his right hand gets heavy), DeHaven Carrington grooves on drums and croons (when the lights are low and the mood is right), and newest member Kelley Hill is a fireball of energy, bouncing on one leg and just tearing the bass up (you may even see metal shavings come off the neck). Olio hit the road in the USA the summer of 2013 for their “Comeback Kings Tour.” Played a successful string of dates in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and cities in between in J

She's 19 years old and is currently studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Sydney is primarily a vocalist who started learning the guitar and piano in her early years of high school. It was important to her to have the ability to accompany herself while singing. Learning these instruments is also what sparked her interest in songwriting. Some of Sydney's biggest inspirations are Christina Perri, Sara Bareilles, James Taylor, Carole King, John Mayer, and others. After joining a cappella, and falling in love with it, Sydney started writing songs. Her writing comes from a place of truth and a way to connect to others. Songwriting is how she expresses herself. After spending a year at a college with not enough music for her, she took a personal risk and auditioned for Berklee College of music to follow her passion. Tha

Lanskey is #Flyah

   Hey world I am Lanskey and my name means having the key to open up the doors of opportunity. I use the studio like any great artist, just constantly throwing ideas and paint on the canvas looking for the pattern that could capture your imagination. I dare myself to be different and I do what I do effortlessly. I am a very complex individual who follows details very carefully, I got my ear to the streets so i don't miss a beat. I hear the gimmicks and from my point of view the airwaves is polluted with too much party and bullshit music (pardon my french). So I push myself to create music that's diverse and to give the fans and the people a bit of optimism. You see my music is more than entertainment to me it's about purpose, it's about uplifting too, so I put my message in the music hoping that I reach you or touch you in some way also my music represents my personality. I am real and never jaded also the rude boy of hip hop is very confident and

Frank Right is #Flyah "Whats your fly?"

 In the brief publicity bio that he wrote for his website, Chicago-based rapper Frank Right declares: “Hip-hop is not about color. It’s about experience.”  Very true.  Hip-hop is about experience and skills, and skillful rappers come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.  Right is not black, and that should not be a factor when one is evaluating his work.  On his album,  Said I Couldn't Do It , the Midwesterner shows himself to be a skillful and talented MC.  And Right puts those skills to good use, offering a fair amount of variety and delivering one of the more unpredictable hip-hop releases of early 2013. Much of the time, Right can be considered hardcore rap.  “On Top of the World,” the edgy “Life,” the sociopolitical “Liberty,” the angry “Like Me” and the title song certainly fall into the hardcore rap category.  Whether he is addressing social and political issues, describing his angst in vivid detail (which is what he does on “Countdown
