Anastasija - My World #Flyah


ANASTASIJA – the full name is Anastasija Ozueh, for everyone in casual life just Nastia. 
D.O.B.  – 1986.06.27

I was born in Lithuania, Vilnius (Eastern Europe). I started to sing in kindergarten, and right after that I went to music school to learn how to play piano (7 years). Then I took some private vocal lessons but it didn’t work well for me because my vocals sounded too ordinary. One day I met a vocal coach who changed my life forever… It was 2 years of hard vocal training and developing, working and improving my vocals. Up until now, there was always something to learn. My stubbornness didn’t allow me to give up. After that training I took part in and won many international singing contests in 3 different countries. I sang in many languages: English, Lithuanian, Russian, French, Hebrew, Spanish, Portuguese and etc. In 2008 I became a part of a band called AJ Project (which was renamed to AJ Elements) with my college mate Jurgis Mikalauskas. We wrote 9 songs together and a few of them had some success. All of those songs had to be in an album “First Pancake’’ which was never released. Then Jurgis immigrated to the UK and the band fell apart. In 2011 I immigrated abroad myself and it took me a long way to move to my dream country Belgium. Ever since, I have tried to take part in TV shows such as The Voice, X-Factor etc in Belgium but mostly in the UK, but it never worked. I was rejected always everywhere. I was thinking of giving up. But it didn’t break me because after a 6 year break (without any songwriting), I decided to come back and try again! I have tried every single path to achieve my dream! Nothing ever worked out for me no matter what I did, and I decided that instead of giving up and making covers I will write songs for myself and will come out with my own album. I will try to advertise it on the network myself as much as I can. Singing is the most important thing to me! I have only very few friends and I have no family, so music is the engine of my life. I literally live for music; I live to sing and create. Without that there is no other purpose to me. So I am ready to share with you every piece of my art… The funniest thing is that I listen to totally different type of music than I sing. I am totally into club music, DJ mixes, House music and even Trance at some point and etc. I can sing any style however I have a very narrow taste which brings me to the same thing every time. 
And so to stand out in front of other composers I decided to start mixing music styles in one song, to sound different, and I pay a lot of attention to my melodies and lyrics. In the past, I have written some songs which are not really related to my life but now I write songs which either tell a real story from my life, or a song that shouldn’t be understood literally yet there is a hidden meaning that relates to my life. I wanna change the world with my songs. 
I am very grateful for life, since I met Kristen and Calvin on one of the music websites. These 2 awesome people just are incredible! Both of them are so talented and I will never forget that they believed in me and my idea when no one else did! They accepted to take part in this project and I will always be grateful!!! Kristen became a good friend to me and she doesn’t just play piano, she creates all the main piano tracks for my songs, and she also helps me with lyrics! I am very proud of everything we have done together and so her music can be heard too! Calvin is the best guitarist in the World. We secretly gave him a nickname: “A God with the Guitar”.  We will make it together!

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
