Six Years Later - Love Unspoken #Flyah Review


Six Years Later began as a recording project consisting of a vocalist from Los Angeles, a drummer from Sweden, and a professional studio based out of Philadelphia, PA. The band’s brainchild, David Hoffman, serves as its principal songwriter and producer. Having multiple solo releases under his belt, Hoffman utilizes the studio, built by himself to write, perform, and record almost all the musical compositions. Working diligently on the songs and struggling to find the right vocalists for the project, Hoffman finally came together with the right people to see his vision through. The "Chronicles" album is a testament to where he is at with his sound right now.
The current lineup of Six Years Later includes vocalist Natalie Semkiw, who has served as the voice of Six Years Later for their entire catalog. Along with lead guitarist Nick Demou, drummer David Lee and rhythm guitarist Justin Fava. Filling in the role of the “Fifth Beatle” is Ray Ferretti who lends his hand with guitar production, mixing and numerous other studio roles.
With the release of their fourth studio album; the "Chronicles" LP, Six Years Later dishes out a new style of genre bending sounds to create something all their own. Laced with addictive guitar work, an edgy but soulful vocal approach, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative rock anthems. Although songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds them all together much like any concept album should. Most importantly, the record never loses sight of the emotional platform great songs are built from.
The first single, “Love Unspoken”, immediately grabs you with its hard hitting groove, followed by beautiful vocal melodies complimenting the song’s driving nature, moving seamlessly into its powerful pop chorus giving the track new life as it plays on.
“'Love Unspoken' is a song celebrating love. It's a driving track that screams 'We're in love'. We felt this song was a good single to release first. It's a jamming song and we felt it would serve as a good representation and introduction to the band.” explains songwriter David Hoffman of the single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding of where Six Years Later is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.
"The album is really varied from song to song while maintaining a cohesiveness at the same time. There's pop, rock, alternative, heavy songs, slow songs, guitar songs, piano songs, there's a lot in there. The first two albums from Six Years Later have a more synth based sound. 'Chronicles' maintains a healthy rooting in the original synth sound of the band, but at the same time developing a more alt/pop/rock sound. The drums are more banging and much of the album represents a heavier approach with guitars than previously used. Overall the production quality continues to evolve and improve with each release from Six Years Later. We work really hard on each album, learning more and applying that to the next one." says Hoffman of the evolution of the band’s songwriting.

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.

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
