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.

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

  Den Edie Flyah interveiw So could you tell us a little bit about your upbringing in Ohio?  I was sent to guitar leasons by my parents when I was 10 years old. My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
