X-Factor Teen Reed Deming’s New Song Seeks to Inspire
Self-Acceptance Movement by America’s Youth
San Antonio, Texas - Thursday, September 4, 2014   
Two years ago, 13 year old X Factor US - Season 2 semi-finalist Reed Deming was dubbed the “Next Justin Bieber” in a YouTube video of his live audition in front of judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, L.A. Reid and Demi Lovato.  That video has nearly 37 million views to date and now, at age 15, it's plain to see he’s anything but another Bieber.  As Deming prepares to release his new EP Satellites on September 9, 2014 on iTunes, he has taken to YouTube to promote his flagship single Crash Test Dummy (Broken) and explain the song’s message of self-acceptance. 
“This song, to me, is really about the acceptance of yourself.  There‘s so much that teenagers and young people have to go through these days.  And there is so much more pressure that is put on them by other people:  by society, by the media, by their peers.  It’s just a confusing journey figuring out who you are in this world and who you want to become.  And I feel that despite your flaws and your imperfections, you need to accept who you are and you may not be perfect but you need to understand that no one else is.” 
The behind-the-scenes video is set at Orb Studios in Austin, Texas, while Reed is in the live Crash Test Dummy (Broken) recording session with producer Matt Noveskey of platinum selling alternative rock band Blue October.  Noveskey points out that this song is a bit of a new, more mature musical direction for Reed and he’s a fan of the song’s inspirational message.  “I think everyone can relate to that no matter what generation you are.”  
Noveskey is not the first to say that Reed seems “wise beyond his years”.  He has also been called “the emperor kid” by rapper /producer Will.I.Am and an “old soul” by other musicians and teachers.  Reed comes across as a deep thinker who cares about people and wants to make the world a better place.   
“Every day my fans reach out to me about their struggles with self-acceptance.  Some even talk about hurting themselves which is heart-breaking.  I hope this song lets them know that I care about them and want them to be happy with who they are.”  Reed explains.   A lyric video for the song was also made that allowed fans to participate by featuring photos of them holding up signs with their favorite lyrics from the song.  Reed really hopes that the self-acceptance message in Crash Test Dummy (Broken) will resonate with people of all ages and backgrounds.  And, if the growing number of fan comments on his videos are any indication, it will:
“I'm speechless that you are able to articulate a message that speaks to every single human no matter what generation, race, or social status! You have an amazing gift Reed.”
“This brought tears to my eyes. Such an inspirational video. I can't wait for the song! Love you”
“I haven't listened the whole song yet and I'm almost crying. The message is so beautiful.” 
Fans are also starting a Twitter campaign in support of the self-acceptance message.  #BeYou

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

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
