Big Al Staggs goes So Lo #FlyahReview

Big Al Staggs hits the market running with his new LP entitled, "So Lo". The artwork of the album is colored in hot pink and the blueish filter just makes the cover eye-catching. Just like the Flyah Team, Big Al Staggs is from the beautiful state of Virginia, the city of Norfolk to be exact. This project was co-written and produced by the former lead guitarist for Iggy Pop and David Bowie, Stacy Heydon. With these notable names, I knew instantly that this was going to be a classic. "Been There, Done That" by Big Staggs is the type of vibration that good people search for.

The lyrics "I been there... I done that...but i never seen the likes of you before" tells the experience of someone who had been on this planet for a long time but this day he finds the special someone in his life that brings a new experience. It can also be taken as a good pick up line to get that hot girl. The instrumentation of the song has a young spirit and the use of the vocoder also brings an youthful sound to an industry which is thriving off the love of millennials. I also enjoyed the videography to this song which brought back a 90's view of popular rock bands. 

"Getting Even" is also a good song on this album; with a groovy beat similar to tunes played during high school dances, the tempo is energetic filled with melodic rhythm that can make anyone boogie. This will be a great song for a fight scene at the bar in a 80's setting action movie. "Shine in My Moon" is a metaphorical driven love song that poetically connects the listener to hear the things Big Al is thinking about a woman. Love can be a complicated thing and we all have flaws however in the midst of the flaws, there's always someone who will find interest in what makes the person unique. The musical cadence in this song has an island feel and a wonderful bounce that kind of makes you ride through. The presentation of the lyrics to Shine in My Moon was a joy to hear.

My favorite song is "Your Car is The Prize" and it personifies a car as if it was a woman. Big Al goes into detail of the engine of the car being feisty and supercharged as a sign of it prepared for a ride. This reminds me of a story from my childhood when our father use to call his car Nellie. A car can be dependable like a female spouse in a rough time. The lyrics of the song depict a trophy of a lifetime; the very first muscle car is a dream that any guy can imagine.

If I had to rate this album on the scale of 1 to 10; I'll give it a 9 for the amazing detailed stories usage of metaphors fun energy and great performance both vocally and instrumentally. This album was released on January 3rd 2020 and now available on all streaming services

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
