The Scheme Official Music Video #FlyahMagazine


The Scheme – aptly named due to their constant need to always have the next big plan – are smartly defining a name for themselves on the international music scene as ‘the band to watch’.  Their distinct voices, arrangements, musicianship and talent for writing bloody good songs, are the reason why their first track notched up over 400,000 hits on youtube; and that was before their publicity machine even kicked into gear!  Their loyal fans, dubbed ‘Schemers’, are clearly making sure that their band get the exposure they truly deserve.
Welcome Kris, Kyle and Aleskey; who together form the perfect package of The Scheme. Each are formidable vocalists in their own right, but the harmonies their voices create are truly off the hook.  Blending into a distinctive sound that’s somewhere betwixt The Script meets Lawson, these boys are creating a vibe like no other musical fusion out there. Look beyond the hoards of screaming fans and enviable jaw-dropping image and you’ll find a solid 3-piece whose melodies and lyrics are comparable to some of the best in the business.
Despite their youth, The Scheme have many years of experience in the music business. Kyle began classical piano training at 10 and joined his first band at 16, Kris took the lead in a school musical at the tender age of 6 and joined his first band at 15, whilst Aleksey picked up his first guitar at the age of 12 and was instantly given the guitar solo in his school’s production of ‘We Will Rock You’.
Having dabbled in numerous day jobs including waiting at Burger King, right through to scrubbing coach floors, the boys have always had one single plan: to write, produce and perform music.  That’s been their single-minded ambition, the plan of a lifetime - which is why their name, The Scheme, is so apt.
Writing and co-writing all their own music, their songs are organic with a spine-tingling acoustic vibe. Fused with the heartfelt lyrics that are poignant and invoke an emotional response, these boys are creating catchy musical masterpieces that audiences are clambering after.
Musical chemistry can’t be manufactured and discovering friendship that comes hand-in-hand with talent and outstanding musical ability is almost impossible – almost!  The Scheme are the lucky ones as a fortuitous meeting at Tileyard Recording Studios led Kris (from Liverpool) to form an instant bond with Orlando born, Kyle.  Previously, Kyle had made a name for himself on a US show called ‘Big In America’ (which gave him an almighty and loyal fan base); whilst Kris had been in many bands and perfected his craft on the live music circuit.  In late 2012, Kris and Kyle met at a studio in London and there, The Scheme was born.
The Scheme based themselves in Berlin to begin songwriting their early tracks and very quickly an entire catalogue of songs had been written.  WithINFLUENCES ranging the full spectrum from The Script, The Beatles, One Republic, Coldplay, Queen, right through to Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, Jill Scott and Alicia Keyes it becomes clear how The Scheme have created a sound so different and fresh. As a band there’s no ‘front man’, no ‘lead’ – each of these boys are an individual supreme talent who have discovered that it’s their combined mix that makes them unique.  Individually they’re good, together The Scheme are unmistakably brilliant.

The Scheme cut an awesome image, with a sound and talent strong enough to make them as good as they look.  The band have even generated impressive brand attention from the likes of Lacoste Footwear, Crafter Guitars, RedwingSHOES, All Saints, Boo Hoo, Gibson Guitars, Penfield, and Firetrap - all of whom have either shown the band support and/or gifted clothing. For a band set to release their debut album later this year, things don’t get better than this!

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
