Parker Hu - Let You Chase Me #Flyah Review


Parker Hu began playing music as a mandatory activity. Though she took piano and trumpet lessons throughout her younger years, she had little opinion about music at the time. It wasn’t until she was fifteen that she taught herself to read charts and play chords on the guitar. Hu quickly fell in love with the instrument. 
Not long after, she figured out how to record audio with a borrowed computer from school. Sitting down, plugging in, and recording her first song was instant magic for her. This is when things began to really take shape.
Hu would go on to play guitar for worship services at her church, while her binder and sketchbooks filled with original songs. By the end of high school, singing and playing guitar was a part of her identity. College years introduced her to the world of studio recording, as audio engineering friends began recording her songs. 
As time went on, Hu started playing in bands, spanning genres of americana to samba to progressive rock. Talking about music, playing music, and being around music became a liberating new normal for her.
Years later, a meaningful conversation with a friend motivated Hu to restart a neglected album project. She delved back into the writing and recording process and hit things hard. Unfinished songs were brought back to life, and mixes were reworked again and again until they were complete. Finally, only a half an hour before New Years Day, "Late Reply" was deemed finished and uploaded for the world to hear.
The “Late Reply” album is a testament to all the hard work and passion Hu puts into her music, and where she is at with her sound right now.
With the release of the "Late Reply" LP, songwriter Parker Hu takes a few classic genres and gives them a spin all her own. Lush with addicting progressions, edgy but soulful vocals, and persistent pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative folk anthems. Although the songs are diverse, a glue holds them all together, much like any concept album would.
The first single, “Let You Chase Me”, is a near-perfect example of how to subtly captivate a listener. Opening acoustic guitar work creates a peaceful, relaxed feel, followed by a vocal melody that seems to linger for days on end. The stripped down nature of the track lets the song breathe as it plays on.
“The possibility of the unknown to fulfill what we hope to experience is what drives human fantasy", explains the songwriter of her single.
Although the single speaks volumes for the album, the LP should be heard in its entirety to get a real understanding of where Hu is coming from.
“Over the years, being around bands and musicians exposed me to different musical styles and instruments I never would have tried before. I started playing electric guitar for the first time and experimented with it during the writing process. It took those songs to a place I never would have expected,” says Hu of the songwriting process for the record.

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
