Grandmother Cornflake is #Flyah

 


Grandmother Cornflake (GMCF) is a song writing and recording team consisting of Tony Brackett (bass guitar, guitar, mandolin), David Prago (vocals, keyboards, guitar, harmonica, dulcimer) and Fred Smith (guitar, keyboards, drums). Songs From The Lake is a collection of music recorded over the course of 2014. There are no "virtual" instruments used or digital editing performed in the recording of the music. GMCF has a wide variety of influences including REM, Tom Petty and The Beatles. We pride ourselves on writing music with strong melodies and vocal harmonies. Included is a mix of rock, pop, ballads and Americana. GMCF would like to extend thanks to our old friend and band mate Jack Quidley as well as Jacob Anflick and Aaron Turner for providing the outstanding drumming heard on Songs From The Lake. Very special thanks to Billy Richardson and Electric Eye Studios for the mixing and mastering of this album!
GMCF Bio: David, Tony and drummer Jack Quidley formed the band Mother Cornflake in the early 1990's. After playing with several guitarists for a couple of years, David invited his cover band partner Fred to join up. Fred eagerly agreed and his playing style was what the band was looking for to round out their sound. Mother Cornflake toured the east coast playing to packed houses as well as recording a full length album and an EP. Unfortunately, the strains of various life challenges forced the group to disband in 1996. Jack moved home to Cape Hatteras, NC and David and Fred continued playing in their cover band for the following 10 years. Jack is currently a singer/guitarist performing well over 100 gigs a year in various venues on North Carolina's east coast. Prior to joining Mother Cornflake, Tony was a member of The Graphic, his wife Treva's popular Greensboro band. The Graphic played numerous shows all over the country including several at the famed CBGB. After his stint in Mother Cornflake, he continued playing shows with Treva and played on her highly successful album recorded in the late 1990's with their longtime friend Don Dixon and Mitch Easter handling the engineering and production duties. Tony, David and Fred remained friends over the years and got the "bug" to write some music together again. They were having so much fun, they decided to record the songs which are included here. It seemed fitting to make Mother a Grandmother since we are all a little older, hopefully more mature and better songwriters!! Grandmothers were always more fun than mothers when you were a kid anyway, right?!!!

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
