They came together for the LOVE of music. “Their music is fun, soulful and full of the type of creativity this industry needs. My favorite thing about this band is how consistent they are throughout their project.  Every song is a story of its own but their great branding skills receives the glory.  Their hot single Soulsville is one of our favorites because the way they mixed indie rock with A jazzy saxophone.  This style is authentic and like a breathe of fresh air.

Time for me to get ready!” John opened a small drawer in his closet saw the ring as he muttered, “Ah! It is still here!” As he looked at it, his mind recalled an old moment as he picked the ring in his hand. *FLASHBACK* ONE YEAR EARLIER – John was walking with his girlfriend Stacy Wilson.

Opening it to reveal a ring, he said, “Stacy Wilson

With the coronavirus pandemic still raging, when will The Batman, Marvel's Shangi-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Matrix 4, Jurassic World: Dominion, Mission: Impossible 7, and other major releases slated for 2021 resume production? And when will projects such as Uncharted and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness be able to even start filming given the industry-wide shutdown?No movies will be able to resume or begin production until local governments lift bans on gatherings of more than 10 people. According to a source for Variety, it's expected that the first productions to resume will be those filming in the U.S. given that "the prospect of filming overseas presents too many logistical challenges given the global nature of COVID-19." Variety reports that studios have informed talent and their representatives that they don't expect delayed productions to resume "until mid-May at the earliest. ...

Disney World and Disneyland Finally Admit Things Will Never Be the Same

© Provided by The Motley Fool Disney World and Disneyland Finally Admit Things Will Never Be the Same Disney (NYSE: DIS) was living in denial until Friday afternoon, finally conceding that Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida won't be reopening anytime soon. It's been two weeks since the world's leading theme park operator closed its stateside attractions, initially targeting the outage to last only through the end of the month. With April around the corner and no coronavirus containment in sight, Disney is now shuttering its domestic theme parks indefinitely. There is no new opening date. Disney is promising to continue paying its displaced hourly workers through April 18, but that doesn't necessarily mean the resort will spring back to life immediately after that. Disney doesn't know when it will open its parks, only because nobody knows when that will be. Disney may have been the first theme park operator to announce the first round of closur

Wrong Number Series - Chapter 1 - Written By Avijit Misra(Created by Charles J.)

CHAPTER 1 – HIT JOB  “CHICAGO” In a building, a man came out of the elevator and walked towards an office. He was holding a Wolfman mask in his hand. He entered the office where the underworld mobster Nikolai Belinsky was sitting at a table. Looking at the man, Belinsky said in a Russian accent, “John Avery! My favorite American! Because the whole criminal underworld knows you as the dangerous Wolfman!” In a cold voice, John Avery replied, “In the whole underworld, only you know the face behind the Wolfman mask!” As John spoke, he thought, “Even my Voter ID does not have my real face!” John Avery continued, “When you call me, I give priority to your assignments because you are a good friend, you make timely payments, and cops on your payroll always help me when I need help from police to accomplish a mission!” Nikolai Belinsky replied, “I have suffered a huge loss as police has confiscated a consignment of my drugs! So for this mission, I cannot pay you immediately! But I pro

Audio Moonshine - Left in the Dark #FlyahReview

Audio Moonshine is a Northwestern Indie Rock group. Going through common times were things seem mundane, Audio Moonshine was concerned that creativity had hit a brick wall. Artist Jake Ransom went through a terrible accident that lead to devastating events but his band gathered around to make sure he made it through. The album, " Left in the Dark " is a call of action and story about the journey of overcome these tough hurdles. We started listening to Audio Moonshine with one desire and that was to hear great rock and roll. I have to say that this band didn't let us down at all. " Lonely Ride Back Home " sets the tone and brings a real perspective on how things can be when facing life challenges. The music was perfectly mixed, the vocals were intoxicating and the vibe touches us with a sense of hope.  " Take It For Granted " is a tale of a person who thought everything was peach and nothing could go wrong but now the air is getting thin

Don't Call Me Shirley

Don't Call Me Shirley Don't Call Me Shirley focuses on catchy prog-rock with the   Tired / Ashes   EP. Utilizing a little distance to create an impressive space rock kind of sound, the EP is a bit innovative in it's reaching outside the norms of rock music and still being quite catchy in it's own right. Emotion and fire are both there and can be heard clearly while the songs take over the atmosphere. These songs are best listened to with headphones though great for a drive as well. They can get you thinking and that's part of what makes good music so good. Songs that take you out of where you are and bring you to another place all together. Don't Call Me Shirley does this. "Tired" is a radio worthy song for prog-rock fans anywhere. album/0AdT5Gj2BaZCSDiyV0Ts2J listen_dcms/ dcms evans-13 https://listendcms.bandcamp.

Starting in the mid 90's, Roberto Fabbro began to take a journey in the world of Rock and Blues with the mixture of electronic music. By the early 2000's, he participated in several different bands that played Pop, Grunge Metal, Rock, and Blues. In 2013, he decided to create new projects under the name, The RobAnd , after a purposal given to him by Garbiele Saro .  Now they're back with a track entitled " Bextasy ". The rock driven song starts with the sound of broken glass giving its hardcore theme. Following with the sound of rolling percussion, Gabriele comes in with the perfect tune and delivery to match its pizzazz. With the Amy Winehouse style of singing, this track really has a bluesy sound. In a professional way, you can tell that the engineers really took their time and efforts to produce a crystal clear recording of her voice. I really enjoyed around the 47 second mark when the track kicks up into a more upbeat metal sequence and she shows

PRSNA Brings the Energized Punk Rock Bangers! #FlyahReview

Over the course of 9 years, the group has released 2 EPs and have performed with Third Eye Blind , Twenty-One Pilots , and Envy on the east coast. They are an one of a kind band with a 90's-esque style that high school students would love. Punk Rock is suppose to be fun energetic and free-spirited which PRSNA performs well. While listening to the single " Cut Throat ", I was taken on a journey consisting of a spiraling down relationship between a hard working person and political jerks forcing their way of living on the average joe. Sometimes people can feel alienated and blocked from the success they want to achieve; this also can be a metaphor of a battle between the conscious and subconscious mind. In life, we could be our own enemies and become aware but seem to make the sam

Using music to escape from problems and life issues, he utilizes his talent in a stupendous manner. Today, he graces us with a passionate driven LP entitled " Dear Love ". The overall production performance of this album is quite up to date with sounds of the 808's pounding and nice neo-soul melodies. One of my favorite things of this album is that it can definitely be considered a concept album. The album features up to 8 love inspired songs that bring you into the mindset of a young man that is learning about love as the days go by. The cover is quite vibrant showing a cartoon version of King.S dressed in white seeming as if he was in deep contemplation. This project is intended to be a letter about the state of relationships and his perspective on topics that men normally don't discuss. This al

E.R.I.E. takes on a new direction for Foster as the band lays down some real deal classic rock roots. "Fire Away" leads the set of 11 songs that complete the album. You can feel the inner turmoil turn to an inspirational send off as storytelling begins. A great chorus and energy shows it's face while the song grows more powerful. The record plays out with folk-ish sounds and goes back to hitting a harder rock all with a gusto. "Doubt" is a near perfect example of what the record has to offer. Other notable songs include the swing time Americana song "The Background". Along with those,

Dusty Leigh - Like you were forbidden - Flyah Review

Hailing from Idaho, Dusty Leigh is a country sensation you must hear. Named after her mother's favorite band ZZ Top , Dusty started life with humble beginnings. At a young age, she entered karaoke contests, talent shows, & local fair competitions. Losing her mother in near teens, Dusty knew she had to hammer down and work hard for her dreams. With influences of Dolly Parton Bob Seger & Tina Turner , she was equipped for the battle. When first playing the country hit single, " Like You Were Forbidden ", I was instantly blown away by the wonderful mastering work. The song starts off strong and powerful with blaring guitars and well mixed percussion. This love song reminds me of the Adam and Eve story when something is so desirable that you can not keep away. The detailed lyrics paints a magical scene of passionate attraction. With these metaphoric phrases, the listener will be entertained from start to finish. The one line " It may burns us up bu

Twicy Asks to Gimme Love #FlyahReview

Hailing from the country of West Africa, Twicy has the sound to become an overnight sensation. With his Afrobeat influence and savvy lyrics, he definitely has the skills to pay the bills. As a graduate from Edinaman High School in Ghana, Twicy truthfully defeats all odds. He was first recognized in 2018 when he performed in France and in Germany. Shocking the listeners with his new smash hit entitled " Gimme Love ", Twicy hits the ground running with the Wizkid type of vibe. His voice is very appealing and accent makes the song supreme while the mixing on this record is also very professional. I can picture this played on the top 40 channels throughout the whole summer. This song talks about having a love interest whose body is amazing, with style and grace that brings you into a romantic world. Twicy also speaks about all the things he can do for that girl. The hook is catchy and has the ability to stand the test of time. I believe the organization and composit

The addictive pop of Me Me Me

The addictive pop of Me Me Me Atlanta based pop group Me Me Me packs a punch, but does so in the form of  strings, hooks, and excellent songwriting. Their EP (self titled), goes through 5 songs each strung together and woven into a whole almost seamlessly. Each song a part of the next, and each song with the stature to stand on its own. The record is as poppy as it gets in an acoustic sort of way, but most of these tunes are backed up with some titillating strings that just take over and leave you wanting more. In short, Me Me Me leaves you wanting more more more. The EP is a good length and is worthy of hitting repeat a few times at least and this band has come a long way from their humble beginnings. But you can hear the musicianship and quality in this record without trying. A valiant effort from Me Me Me. MeMeMeTrio/ mememetrio/ https://mememetrio.bandcamp. com/ https://ope

Socially Altered and the Subconsious Terminus #FlyahReview

Socially Altered is a solo act from the marvelous country of India. Krishnendu Ghosal is the sole member who creates music with the blend of alternative rock, jazz, and psychedelic tunes. In 2015, he was signed to an indie label entitled NUB Music. Dealing with the lost of his grandfather, Krishnendu took an absence in 2018 because of emotional turbulence. Now it's 2020 and the talented superstar arrives with the EP entitled " Subconscious Terminus ". The first track on this EP is entitled " Into the Snake Pit ". This track lives up to its name by starting with a dangerous sounding baseline. The saxophone brings you into a dramatic twist when things can spiral out of control. In accompaniment by the guitar, the theme is well presented and entertains you as the beat goes on. The second track on this EP is called " Lost in Jazz ". When I first listened to Lost in Jazz, I was traversed to a place where daydreams rule. The opening cymbal follo

This group performs in many different languages including English, Spanish,  French and several others. The  CEO and President  Victoria Napolitano has been casted in commercials radio and other great venues over the course of 12 years.

It begins with strings,  piano playing and soft percussion that brings you into an insightful mindset. The lyrics are very passionate telling a story of meeting a love interest and being enchanted in the realm of seeking love. The Techno-Pop song speaks about depending on the presence of a loved one and feeling encouraged to keep the union close. I felt as if the vocalist opened his heart in sincerity wishing that this love interest will respect and invite him in

Hip-Hop + House Choreography Signal an All-New Kind of ‘West Side Story’ on Broadway

Photo Source: Jan Versweyveld The country looks very different than it did 60 years ago, and any new production of "West Side Story" probably should, too. That's the philosophy of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, the choreographer enlisted by theater's preeminent avant-garde interpreter Ivo van Hove for his revival of the American classic (now running at the Broadway Theatre). De Keersmaeker makes her Broadway debut with this sinister take on the Leonard Bernstein-Arthur Laurents-Stephen Sondheim epic—a feat she acknowledges as going directly "into the lion's mouth." In your words, what does the choreographer do?A choreographer organizes movement in time and in space. I love choreography because it is the most direct [means] of embodied abstraction. I like to work with the body. I do consider myself even more a dancer than a choreographer. Another possible definition is defying gravity. Also, if you go back to ancient Greek mythology, it means "writin
