Sympathetic Drive is #FLYAH

 
Sympathetic Drive got their start playing for special occasions at family gatherings.  What started as a dream for me, to play music together with my sons and daughters, has morphed into a reality. The band, influenced by a variety of different music genres, started doing cover songs and now has produced original songs for our 1st CD. The variety of music played by the band includes; Latin pop, rock, and pop music. Although having different genres thrown together is considered uncommon, we decided to go against the grain and be ourselves.

Sympathetic Drive is made up of band members Daniel T. Ramos, Vocals, Keyboard and guitar; David Ramos, drums and vocals; Analisa Ramos, vocals and keyboards; Javier Ramos, guitar and Bass, Megan Ramos, vocals and Keyboard and Danny Blake, guitar and vocals.


Sympathetic Drive – A family affair

A lot of fathers might have musical ambitions for their kids. But not so many end up forming a successful band with them.

For Daniel Ramos, though, that is exactly what has happened. From playing at intimate family gatherings in San Antonio, Texas, Ramos, his two sons, two daughters and a close family friend, soon started developing a sound all of their own – and a fanbase to match. And so, Sympathetic Drive was born.

It’s a long way from practicing in the garage to releasing a debut CD, but Ramos and his family have now done just that, with the long awaited debut of their first record, also called ‘Sympathetic Drive’.

It is a record that perfectly showcases the style and sound of Ramos and his hugely talented kids: David, Analisa, Javier and Megan, as well as guitarist, vocalist (and friend) Danny Blake. These are songs that reflect the frontier world where the family grew up; a world where rock and roll meets the Latin influence from across the border, and where music is a way of life.

The original songs on this collection carry some of the edge of today’s most experimental bands, like Queens of the Stone Age, while retaining the pop sophistication of a songsmith such as Enrique Iglesias. And most of all, they reflect the sound of a family that loves playing music together.

Each song is also very personal, telling a different story that has meaning for a different member of the band.

It is the mix of the personal and the universal that makes Sympathetic Drive a great band – and this, its first album – a great record.

Whatever happens from here, the Ramos family has already come a long way – and has even further to go. Join them for the ride.

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
