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

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
