Georgia Sound is #Flyah








 Georgia Sound is the up and coming singer/songwriter duo from Calgary, Alberta. Their style blends the rustic vocals and guitar of Ryan Roy, with the classical piano harmonies and dramatic vocals of Shannon Magee. The two received much praise and success after coming on the scene with their EP 'One Way Path', and quickly became one of Calgary's most anticipated new artists. They have spent much of 2014 writing and recording their first full length album 'Love Can Change' which has recently been released. They have spent a considerable amount of time refining their sound, and listeners can expect an album that is evident of detail and depth.


PRESS RELEASE

September 24, 2014, Calgary, AB. –Calgary’s indie/folk duo Georgia Sound announces their return to the music scene with the release of their single ‘Love Can Change’ to be followed up by their first full-length album in mid-October.

Georgia Sound, also known as Ryan Roy and Shannon Magee, are the Calgary based duo that have been stirring things up in the music industry since a chance meeting at a local open-mic night in 2011. Almost immediately after, they began crafting songs and arrangements, releasing their debut five song EP ‘One Way Path’. Those five magical songs won the hearts of Calgarian’s and music enthusiasts alike quickly becoming one of the city’s most anticipated new artists.

The two have been working tirelessly for the past year, self-financing their album but refusing to compromise on the quality. Both have taken on part-time jobs in addition to their full time ones, all while still finding time to perform and record exactly what they want to deliver, an exceptional album.

The album (of the same name) is a representation of the precision and detail oriented sounds of classically trained musician (Magee), blended with just the right amount of edge from self-taught guitarist Roy. On the technical side of things, they enlisted the help of former Los Angeles based producer Steve Dierkens and his team of professional musicians at Studio D (in Calgary). It is polished, passionate and evidence that Roy and Magee are fully committed to their musical career and are more than ready to take it to the next level.

For the release of the single ‘Love Can Change’ the duo has partnered up with local music start-up Muzooka.  Muzooka is an innovative platform that focuses on using data to connect industry professionals with up and coming talent more efficiently. Together with Muzooka, they aim to establish and promote Calgary as a city that is capable of producing brilliant talent.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
