Nyah connects with her fans with Disconnected EP #Flyah Review

Nyah is an up and coming artist from a small town of Florence in the state of Oregon. She is a terrific vocalist who is etching her own lane to be the dynamic artist she is today. What I find to be notable was she also had acting roles such as Flounder in The Little Mermaid and Dorothy in her most recent casting of The Wiz. Nyah also was discovered by Grammy award nominated producer/writer, Bruce Vanderveer. Her latest EP is entitled "Disconnected" which features five tantalizing pop tracks.

When I first heard the track entitled "Midnight", I was instantly blown away from her vocal range and metaphoric passages given in the lyrics. The song almost has a magical sound that leads you down a path telling a story of a mysterious person that does everything in secret because of the fear of losing it all. The music behind this track invokes a rave party spirit and entices the listener with every bar.

The second song is called "A Thousand Wishes" which is an emotional driven track as a call of action for a close friend to find their happiness. Led by an acoustic guitar, the strumming of the instrument gives you more in depth behind the emotion of the song. Through hard times, you can watch a person fall and the only thing you can do is pray for them to get better. Sometimes people find their darkness as comfortable and will not allow other people to help them with their problems. This song is a reminder that you are not alone and it is ok to have a good friend that understand what you have been through.

The third track of the EP entitled "Empty Spaces" happens to be a favorite of mine. The song is about living life to the fullest no matter what people say. Their opinions do not dictate the end all be all and its up to you to thrive on new experiences. The instrumentation of the song is filled with good vibes that reminds me of Khalid's song "Young Dumb & Broke" using positivity as a platform to encourage others to seek freedom.

The fourth track "Legends in the Stars" was almost like a restart of the vibe of the first track. Legends in the Stars has a great bounce and you can tell she has been trained to deliver certain styles with such grace. The fifth and final record called "Flowers On My Grave" has a similar start up to A Thousand Wishes until the 34 second mark when it goes to a more upbeat and expressive zone. The lyrics on this song has a lot of detail and expresses the thought of having a positive outlook on death almost highlighting the belief of things never ending.

If I have to rate the EP on a scale of 1 to 10, I will give it a 8 for terrific songwriting composition of the instruments flawless transition from track to track and dynamic performance.

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

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
