Teddy Hayes - LOVE COME RAININ DOWN Old School Flavor




The thought behind Teddy Hayes' video, "Love Come Rainin Down" is that the lyrics are soulful and somewhat a hip hop and R&B song. The video is very descriptive in every sense of the words Teddy sings about. The resemblance of Teddy's style is mixed with Al Jerreau Ronald Isley Rahsaan Patterson and Chuckii Booker, a combination of artists who are straightforward and on point in giving out their messages of love on ballads and smooth jams. Teddy wants to fill in a void of entertainers that is in high demand of making good music and this record does not disappoint. Though music is changing before our eyes, Teddy is not forgetting the old school in which is still relevant to this day and Love Come Rainin Down is a song that can be in rotation on radio and the video version needs to be viewed frequently to be added with the greatest. If I had to rate the video on the scale of 1 to 10, it will be a 9 for originality being descriptive and creativity.

This album has been a long time coming. Believe it or not, it has been something like 40 years long in the making. The songs on this CD represent a combination of love relationships and experiences that I have been involved with during the past 40 years starting from my early days in New York during the nineteen seventies. Sometime love was brilliant and other times love was a very tough road, but all it all it was real. 


I decided that I had a lot of love memories and that I wanted a way of seeing my past love life put into a kind of focus, so I decided to put  some of my songs inspired by my love experiences together that I had written and present them as a CD. I also decided that I had been through so many ups and downs with love over the years that I could be a professor of love-ology and teach a class on love and relationships, especially writing songs about love, so I decided to call the CD “The Professor of Love-SongOlogy”.  Song writing is one of those things that I believe has magic in it. No one can really say why a song touches someone. It either does or it doesn’t. There is no formula. For me I never had really tried to write songs in a technical way. I tend to think of a subject and let things come to me both musically and lyrically. Sometime it happens at the weirdest times. Walking to and from places seem to be the time when my muse decided to come out of hiding. For that reason in the mid-seventies I began walking with a portable had held recorder and now with smartphones, it’s even easier so when my muse decided to whisper a beat or word inside my head, I can respond instantly and record them.
My professional singing career began in Cleveland Ohio when I was in my late teens and I was part of a R&B show that performed in nightclubs on the weekends, That led to a weekly spot on a local TV show which then led me into the recording studio and then to New York where I recorded both with bands and as a singer for various dramatic soundtracks and really learned about production and writing. 
Sometimes the circumstances  in love are interesting and other times they are sad or funny in the same way that love can be all those things, sometimes all at the same time.

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
