GOLIATH

 Let your guard down, lower your arsenal

Let's go another round, let's burn it to the ground

Watch it go up in flames if you're not satisfied

Why do we even try, why'd you have to say goodbye

Hey I'm talking to you, I know the pain you've been thru

I love those things that you do

Feel the weight of the world descending of your back

Is there a wall around me, I just can't seem to find

Reload your weapon I'm taking a dive

You can call me Goliath

Wearing David strive

I'll climb the highest tree, swim in the darkest sea

End this calamity, come to reality

Watch it go up in flames if you're not satisfied

Why do we even try, why'd you have to say goodbye

Hey I'm reaching to you, I know the pain you've been thru

I love the things that you do

Feel the weight of the world descending of your back

Is there a bridge behind me,

I'll burn it to the ground

Reload your weapon I'm taking a dive

You can call me Goliath

Wearing David strive

CELLAR DOOR

Am I a victim of circumstance?

Or can I lean on to you?

Present the jury with your defense

Guilty verdict by random chance

Was I replaced with a perfect tense?

Got my time wasted on you

Let's keep those theories for rainy days

She might be telling the truth

So trap me, close the cellar door

I think, I've been here before

Dungeon walls they feel so cold

Torture me with words of gold

Was it sacrifice, lonely paradise

A sullen box of tears

Dirty alibis in a whiskey glass

A lifetime worth of lies... How do you survive?

I turn around and I fall asleep

Cannot stay awake

Why should I shed my skin for you?

Nightmare's coming to play

Thief and a liar, I'm finally sober

Started this fire, I am the motor

Flames rising higher, over my shoulder

Burning desire, but I'm getting colder

REVOLUTION

Free your mind from electrical thoughts

Learn to release what you have been taught

Find me a reason, find me a reason

To fight

Self-absorbed, concieded and blonde

Get on your knees, obey and succumb

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight

This should be a reason, a reason to fight!

Save your soul, maybe I'm not able

To belong, this is not a fable

Look for more, than some crumbs

Right of your table

Revolution come on,

Revolution, tag along

See the forest thru the trees

Reminisce childhood memories

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight Is there a cure for this disease

Hurricane rises from a breeze

This is a reason, this is a reason

To fight This should be a reason, a reason to fight!

Does it hurt? Does it sting?

Does it burn from somewhere within?

Liron Single Review / Interview

 
LIRON RETURNS WITH NEW SUMMER SINGLE “PINA COLADAS”
20 July 2018 (Toronto, ON) – After teasing the track earlier this month, Award-Winning singer/songwriter Liron returns with triumphant new single “Pina Coladas”. Co-produced by Liron and Producers Jeff Mcollough (Shania Twain, Chris De Burgh)  and Max River (Shawn Mendes, Jonah Marias, Sebastian Olzanski) and written by Liron, “Pina Coladas” is a sure-fire Summer hit with a fun and carefree vibe, about escaping your worries and living your life!
“Pina Coladas” is the first new single released by Liron since “I Love The Feeling” in August 2016. The track reached 50,000 views and within the first hour got the hashtag #ilovethefeelingvideo to the third top trending hashtag on Twitter worldwide, passing IHeartRadio’s Britney Spears’ inspired tag #Iheartlovesbritney.  She has amassed over 15,000 followers on Instagram, nearly 6,000 followers on Twitter and nearly 3,000 likes on Facebook.
Since graduating from production and audio engineering school, Liron has been busily honing her craft and developing a strong social media presence, and is now on the verge of taking the pop music world by storm. Her new single “Pina Coladas” is the next step in this incredible journey.
 

Liron Single Review

Produced by Max River and Jeff Mcullough, one would expect the new single to be amazing, and musician Liron certainly does not disappoint. Piña Coladas is a summer anthem, the interesting edm sounds accompanied by Liron's powerful vocals makes for a delicious and diverting sundowner.

A change from her previous tracks, Piña Coladas is as refreshing and invigorating as its namesake. Liron's past tracks carry the same beat, but lack the power and confidence behind her vocals. Signs of further development in her sound has enabled a more impactful vocal which has allowed the track to reach new highs. The song is incredibly catchy and only needs one listen before you know all the words. Fans of Ariana Grande, Katy perry or Olivia O’Brien will love this single!

A Piña Coladas has everything in it needed to create a cool summer tune. One dash of a smooth EDM vibe, two dashes of hearty vocals, and a hint of romance. Everything needed is covered in Liron's latest track. When listening, you get visions of a tranquil summer's day, you can hear the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore, and can see the frost forming on your freshly made piña colada.its almost dangerous to listen to, all thoughts of a productive work day disappear.

Liron's former music is about yearning for love, but in the new single, there is a sense of freedom which is empowering for many men and women alike. The song promotes happiness with is slick summer beat and many people will find themselves forgetting about the day's woes.

On social media, Liron portrays herself as a sweet aspiring Musician , which allows for a larger audience across all different age groups. Liron posts manage keep the audience interested but not overwhelmed which is no easy feat. Liron's posts are informative across all social media platforms and are definitely worth a follow.

Overall, the latest single Piña Colada by Liron is definitely worth a listen or two. I say kick back, have a listen, and try to resist the urge of making a piña colada. This single is a success, and I can't wait to hear her future music and hopefully some collaborations.

Liron Interview

Good morning, could you tell me how you found out about The Old School Project?

I originally found out about The Old School Project because of a love for music blogs, and a set of

recommendations from friends to view your site.

What bands/Musicians are you influenced by?

I was obsessed with 90s-2000s divas growing up. My biggest inspirations from that era were probably Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera. More recently however, I am inspired by Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and Olivia O’Brien.

What was the inspiration behind the title piña colada?

The song Piña Coladas was written first and the title given after. With the songs vacation vibe and carefree message I had to really think about which drink is, to me at least, the best to sip on when on vacation or at the beach etc. Personally, that drink was the piña colada.

What's the plan for your future career as a Musician?

The plan, currently, is just to release as much music as I can and hopefully have people enjoy it.

Are there any collaborations in the future and if you had the chance who would you collaborate  with and why?

At the moment no, but I have a few people in mind for future collaborations. My dream collaboration would be Harry Styles. I love his work and his personality is all about caring for the people and social justice which I'm all for.

Describe the Creative process. Is there a certain time or emotion needed to write?

I think, to write anything, there is a certain emotive process to it. For me, writing comes easiest when I'm in a pretty emotional state, whether it is good or bad.

What is the ultimate direction for your music. Fame and fortune or everlasting legacy?

Haha, I mean, that would be insanely amazing but I think my goal isn't to bathe in a bathtub of diamonds and hundred dollar bills. I just want people to use my music as a way to heal or grow. The whole point of this song was to inspire people to be who they are in an overtly judgemental world. When they play Piña Coladas, I want young women to not focus on the idealism of love or the impossibility of perfection, I want the focus to be on enjoying life, because I know it's cliches but life is Super short and there is no time to look back or forward- you have to live in the moment.

How has your music evolved throughout the years?

When I started writing poems I was 11. I transitioned into songwriting when I was 16, and I was in a completely different place emotionally. I was insecure about myself- how I looked, how I acted and how I dressed. I was upset with myself for things I couldn't control but as I got older I realised who I was and that who I am is pretty cool. I think that's when my music took a dramatic turn. That's when I started writing songs like Piña Coladas.

Are you a full time Musician or do you have a job on the side?

I am, as of right now, a full time Musician.

And finally, one that I must ask… are you particularly fond of Piña Coladas?

Hahah, I love this question! I don't really drink but even if I did I doubt I would like Piña Coladas as I hate

coconut. I did have a really nice pineapple smoothie once on a cruise, it was blended pineapple and crushed

ice, INSIDE OF A PINEAPPLE. How cool is that! But no, not a fan of Piña Coladas.

The Ville
The Ville is one of the freshest live bands on the music scene.  Their music is exciting, enticing and leaves you wanting more.  They are a party in a box.  They cover all of the best music from the 90's forward including hip hop, pop, rock and country.  Their originals are fresh and clever in lyrics and delivery.  Their musician skills are outstanding and they never leave their crowd wondering what is happening because they are entertainers and the crowd is a part of their journey each night.  They are young, hip and pleasing to the eyes and ears.  They all have extensive resumes in their music careers with experiences with other acts and when they came together one night to jam they realized that it was the first night of many for the band.   You never know what you are going to get but one thing is for sure you will always have a great time and you will never forget The Ville!

Radiofix
Radiofix released their original studio album "Already Gone" standing behind great song writing, instrumentation, and flat out rock and roll. Radiofix sticks to the basics of being original, playing their asses off, and writing from the heart. Each song a story in itself, Radiofix prides themselves on giving the audience something they want to hear live, and making records you want to listen to over and over.
The release of "Already Gone" marks a turning point for the band, adding Ben Thurston on bass guitar and Jorge Gutierrez Jr. on drums, both bringing their originality and separate influences to produce a hard hitting rock rhythm section.
"Already Gone" is Daniel Martin's take on finding yourself, leaving that person behind, and digging as deep as you can to find something bigger than yourself.

FlowState
FlowState is a Rock band from Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Their sound is a hard-rocking take on 90's grunge with influences from Nirvana and Alice in Chains to Foo Fighters and Puddle of Mudd.

The Ultraviolet
A four-piece band who pride themselves in playing huge, tight and energetic shows with a sound that can most accurately be described as Alternative Rock with a dash of Pop-Punk.
Over the course of 2016, The Ultraviolet have had success with the release of their debut music video 'Wake Up Dead' which resulted in interviews, airplay and live sessions on BBC Introducing shows. This was also accompanied by a UK tour and a bunch of festival shows around the Country, including Mudfest with Scouting For Girls and Goldie Looking Chain. Since 2017, the band have released their EP 'The Tales Of Our Youth' receiving praise from the likes of BBC introducing which resulted in another UK tour including a massive sold out hometown show. Their vigorous touring schedule has also recently seen the band play 2Q Festival Lincoln where they shared the bill with acts such as Circa Waves, Pulled Apart By Horses and Arcane Roots.

Touch the Buffalo
We are an Indie Grunge band based out of Arlington, VA. We began in 2016 with just a uke and some original songs. We've gone from singer/songwriter type music to an Indie Grunge band with a really unique sound. Take a listen to our debut EP and hear for yourself! While you're at it, subscribe to our website for updates and blog releases! We're in the habit of promoting other local artists because we simply love the DC music scene! We know you will too!

Skyeline
Alternative band from Ocean County, NJ. Pulling influences from indie and pop acts like The Killers and Death Cab For Cutie, but not afraid experiment with the heavier side of things like Deftones and Failure, Skyeline's sound is unique and captivating. The band was formed in the winter of 2015 by guitarist Brandon Cruz and bassist Jack Rose who met while attending the audio recording course at Ocean County Vocational Technical School. They soon met vocal major Brittany Byrne from the Performing Arts Academy and instantly clicked. Skyeline intends to experiment with letting different genres collide while retaining an honest and human element to songwriting all while providing an entertaining live show.

GAINSTRIVE

OUR MUSIC IS AN INTERESTING BLEND OF MANY DIFFERENT INFLUENCES WITH ROOTS STEMMING FROM ROCK, PUNK, ALTERNATIVE, AND METAL. YOU MIGHT PICK UP ON A PUNCHY PUNK GROOVE, HOLDING UP A THICK WALL OF CHUNKY POWER CHORDS. YOU MAY HEAR A HEADBANGING BREAKDOWN, BURIED UNDER A HAUNTING VOCAL MELODY AND CATCHY HARMONIES. THE BOTTOM LINE IS SIMPLE: IF YOU LIKE HIGH ENERGY RIFFING, FLOWING MELODIC LEADS, AND CATCHY VOCAL MELODIES, THIS BAND IS FOR YOU! OUR SONGS DEFINITELY HAVE A CLEAR AND COHESIVE STYLE, BUT EACH OF THEM ARE WRITTEN WITH A UNIQUE SOUND AND FEELING IN MIND. WHETER IT'S THE DARK ATMOSPHERIC APPROACH WE CREATE IN "TRUTH IN DEMISE" OR THE GRUNGY ALT TEXTURE FLESHED OUT IN "LEFT BEHIND", WE WANT TO GIVE THE LISTENER A SENSE OF IMMERSION.

Auramancer
Blaede is a Belgian musician, singer and songwriter. Along with some childhood friends, he forms the alternative rock band Auramancer in 2000, performs a few gigs, and records a 4 track demo before putting the band on hold in 2005.
In 2007, searching for a more aggressive yet groovy rock style, he forms the stoner rock band the1984, influenced by Alice in Chains, Down and Silverchair. Their first album, 'Room 101', is written, recorded and produced by Blaede at studio Sainte-Marthe in Paris. 'Room 101' is well received by critics and is the catalyst for the1984’s success in playing shows and performing strongly in music competitions all over Belgium.

Science of the Lamps
Quite appropriately ‘Science of the Lamps’ was dreamt up by Norwegian Liverpool musician Kaya in an off the beaten track restaurant in the fairytale darkness of the city of Prague on a dark December night. Mainly because of a misheard movie title, and an abnormal love for puns.
A band perfect for festivals and encompassing all that is music, storytelling, art, creative flair, melancholy and silliness - framed in catchy songs, lyrical gems and outstanding musicianship from the quirky band. Their inspiration comes from vaudeville, visual art, early Hollywood movie scores, Nordicana, wine, flamenco, trip-hop, music boxes, Paris and whiskey bars.

Fresh Breath
Fresh Breath consists of husband and wife Josh and Katie Pascoe. The focus is creating music that makes you move, makes you groove and makes something different happen in your ears. With high energy and intensely emotional live performances it’s obvious they have a hell of a lot of fun doing it.

Spotlight On International Music

My love for Jam band music is innate within me as a person but for the past few years I have been delving further and further into music from all around the world. These influences and musical contributions to humanity itself are far-reaching and grand in the scheme of things. Music is the language of us all. It is the root of the universe and the rhythm of life itself. American music has influenced people from all over the world but the industry can be very selfish and close-minded. In this editorial, I would like to encourage all of my readers to listen to and engage in new music and especially, music from other countries, you never know what's going to speak to your soul.

While Afro-beat is not new by any means lately, I have been seeing a resurgence of this West African tradition, which takes it influences from Jazz and other Western musical derivatives. Felt Kuti seems to be the originator or at least the most famous of all Afrobeat artists from the 1970s and beyond but there are many new artists doing the same thing that possibly don't get as much recognition. Besides Fela’s son Femi and grandson Seun, who keep this tradition alive, The Antibalas have emerged from Afro-beat, Reggae and Latin music combined. If you want to explore new music and rhythms start The Antibalas, they are one of the most original and danceable bands I have seen in years. 

Tinariwen has taken the world by storm this year and if you haven't heard of this band, you have to check them out immediately. This band turns traditional Arabic music on its head and adds hard hitting, rock sounds and musical structures. They recently did their first tour of America with resounding success. 

 

We never seem to talk about Australian music enough and they seem to have taken the psychedelic tradition from the 1960s on to the next level. A few bands come to mind when I think of the new psychedelic Australian musical and cultural movement. King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard are psychedelic rock meets progressive punk mixed with Celtic rhythms not heard in popular music today. It's really hard to describe King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard so, it's best just to listen to them. They are the only band to have a completely atonal album and their music videos are completely wild and eccentric. They toured North America this year and sold out almost every performance. I'm sure you will hear more about them soon. The Babe Rainbow is another Australian act that has caught my attention with their groovy, smooth, psychedelic flow. Songs like ‘Planet Junior’ and ‘Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest” can immediately take you back in time and are great examples of how this band incorporates sitar and ambient sounds.

 

 

If you're interested in World Music and International Music, I suggest you check out these bands and see where it takes you. I am also interested in expanding my musical knowledge and if anyone has any other international bands that I should check out, please feel free to drop me an email or comment. 

Keep Your Ears And Heart Open,

Robert Fadley

Olivia Henry Single Review

Olivia Henry is sweet yet seductive singer and songwriter. The sexy and slow tempo of her music accompanied by her sensuous vocals allow for a sultry sound. Olivia Henry’s vocal reminds me of a soul singer from the 70’s, her sound is a mix of Amy Winehouse meets June Christy, creating the ultimate jazz sounding vocal.

The latest single Gotta Run is a work of art. The mix of instruments fit perfectly together and creates a smooth sound that you can’t help but drink up. The bewitching vocals paired with the soft drumbeat in the background create an almost R&B sounding track. The lyrics depict a woman waiting for her lover until she decides that she will no longer wait. This highlights something that all women go through in life and creates a sense of self-empowerment and freedom.

The single is very different sounding then her previous tracks. The latest record is a more seductive and soulful song that you would expect to hear in a smoky whiskey bar, where as the previous tracks is more jazz sounding with their vibrant piano sound. The previous tracks I believe were all test runs working towards this latest single where Olivia Henry really honed in on her sound.

Sadly, we don’t see much of miss Henry on Instagram, which in effect is a good thing, as when we do see her, her posts are always thought provoking as well as aesthetic, necessary within the music business. On Facebook though, miss Henry keeps all her fans fully involved with up to date and interesting posts advertising her future gigs and other opportunities. Olivia manages to keep her fans interested and excited for her future in the music world.

Ultimately, Olivia Henry has a promising future in the music world. Her unique sound paired with her sensuous image creates a thrilling listening experience. I personally am looking forward to her future releases and can’t wait to listen to them, as this single gave me an almost powerful feeling as I heard it. Keep a close eye on Olivia Henry!

Olivia will be playing Hotel Cafe's main stage for the first time on Saturday July 14th with some pretty amazing musicians.

When you can't find the words to say and it's hard to make it through another day...

Just Listen to these bands and artists...

 

The Crowning

Nobody understands momentum quite like The Crowning. After storming the scene in the Fall of 2017 with their debut EP, the Pennsylvania quartet has already begun to establish themselves as a regional powerhouse with their unique take on the altrock/grunge sound. In a very short period they have amassed over 45,000 plays on Soundcloud, opened up for several major national touring acts, received airplay from over 100 indie and college radio stations, and have been featured on the cover of The Aquarian Weekly.

Though the group has gained significant traction from the start, the story of The Crowning goes back more than a decade, and it's those formative years that serve as the nexus of their creativity.

 

 

Mad Luck

Andi Ramser (singer, songwriter) and Sean Ewing (guitarist, producer) stir up a wide range of disparate influences without making the water so muddy that they miss the point. The result is a salty sweet rush of pure pop rock, careening back and forth between mellow and sunny to pounding slash and burn!


Neel Dani

Artist. Producer. Songwriter. Vocalist. Multi-instrumentalist. A truly independent musician who wears many hats, Neel Dani does it all, and does it very well. Following in the footsteps of icons like the late and great Prince, Neel’s debut EP “Better Late Than Never” was produced, composed, arranged and performed entirely by Neel, and recorded and mixed by L. Stu Young, engineer to the likes of Prince himself. Writing, singing and playing all the instruments (over 15) featured on the EP's three songs, everything you hear is Neel, and everything you hear is real. From guitars, bass, drums and keyboards to an arsenal of instruments from all over the world, Neel even used a toaster oven on the song “How Do You Like Me Now”, giving new meaning to the term "hot track".


Tandem Unicycle

This is this groups second time finding a singer through craigslist. Proving craigstlist is right, once again, Mark Rosenberg takes lead on Tandem Unicycle. With all but Mark hailing from Orange County (Mark representing the East Coast), we make music that you possibly might be into a little. Taking the wide range of influences of all the different members, we make some sort of rock music.


Grand Tradition

Priding themselves on their eclectic songs, groove based rhythms and jazz styled chord progressions, Grand Tradition are inspired by the likes of Steely Dan and Stevie Wonder but take their contemporary pop edge from Foster The People, Michael Jackson and Phoenix to name but a few.

A rough pre-band demo was released last year created by frontman Anthony and friends which unexpectedly received plays from BBC Introducing, Nation radio, Amazing radio and others. 

A full 6 piece band was formed and this year they released their 1st 5 track e.p. produced and recorded by Nick Brine (Teenage Fanclub, The Darkness) every song went on to be played by BBC introducing and they are looking forward to a year of gigging and playing festivals, sharing the same line up as Elbow, Madness, Field Music and Franz Ferinand, while working on their new 5 track EP.

Eclectic, groove driven, indie, jazzy pop music from Cardiff.  



The Getbye

"Hey, Hey Oh" is what crowds frequently chant as they clap their hands to this Gypsy band. Made up of Koal, Davy, Skitch and Tucker, The Getbye is quickly becoming one of the most talked about groups in their native Orlando, Florida. From one man simultaneously playing accordions, drums and trumpets at the same time, to the others filling on bongos, bass and guitar, The Getbye is certainly a spectacle to be seen, and one that's hard to miss. Their whirlwind of sound, and love, has carried them from The Florida Music Festival, Westward to Backwoods Music Fest, and North to Indiana's Good People Good Times Festival along with a host of other gypsy forest fests.


Strangely Alright

Strangely Alright is a quirky,colorful band of brothers that create rock sprinkled with some electronics and a lyrical message to be who you are and that love is the answer. The peace and love vibe along with some crunchy guitars and pretty harmonies give a sound of that has, as Rockford Rowley from The Weekly Volcano says, “an undeniable emotional appeal. Ringing, triumphant chords and lyrics that allude to conquered tribulations immediately make the music relatable to everyone." And time can have a tricky way of beating people down and telling them to forget who they wanted to be and who they are. The fact that some members of the strangely clan are in recovery brings to mind the reality that people can find what was once lost.


John Guidroz

Louisiana native John Guidroz is a singer/songwriter that blends elements of folk, pop, rock and other genres to create a sound that is truly his own.

John began playing solo acoustic shows in 2004. Over several years, he built a reputation as a solid live performer, willing to play songs from a variety of artists and genres. However, audiences would have to wait for any glimpse of original material.

That all changed in 2012 when John released his first solo album, Yesterday’s News. Produced by Matthew Moss and mixed by Michael James, the eight songs showcase John’s powerful vocal range, a keen sense of melody and clever lyrics. The songs are reminiscent of artists like Pete Yorn, David Gray and John Mayer.

John continues to perform regularly at live venues and has built up more than a decade of experience along the way. Whether performing solo or with a full band, audiences are sure to be entertained by his blend of humor, storytelling and well-crafted songs.


NATALISE + THE SUNSET RUN

Natalise’s musical and artistic journey has taken a variety of adventurous paths. Beginning with piano lessons at the age of three, dance at seven, singing in the church choir at eight, she then auditioned and began training at the renown San Francisco Conservatory of Music at age 11, where she began her journey to become an accomplished classically trained pianist and vocalist. Natalise, however, soon found greatest solace and inspiration in writing her own songs on the piano.

Time is of the Essence. It either goes too fast or too slow, but either way we never fully appreciate the time we have until it runs out. To live in the moment is what we all struggle to do. In a world of big corporations and billion dollar deals, we are slaves to our jobs and routines. The latest single “The Moment” by A Second Life is all about time. The past, the present, the future and what it does to people like you and me.

The story behind this song is loss, the loss of an old friend. And I know from experience how difficult it is. I'm only surprised by how productive this song is when it comes to capturing those dream like feelings. “If i knew when, then maybe I would be different”, singer Chris Damphouse croons along to the fingering of guitar strings. This slow start helps to highlight the raw emotions that he is feeling. This line alone taps into the emotions that we all feel about anything and everything. How many times do you sit and question what would of happened if you knew something different, or you did something new? It's a dangerous thing to think, but it was needed in this song to show that everybody hurts when they loose someone.

The song talks about feeling caged in narrow walls, and loosing someone precious to you does this. It often requires great effort to loose this feeling. Six months after Ryan passed, his widow posted on Facebook telling everyone how Ryan would everyone to live, not just a half arsed attempt but to really live for each moment, and that's what triggered this song. Written Lyrically in mere minutes, the song is not short of emotion and is able to appeal to the masses who have lost someone or feel lost themselves. The song inspires for a new kind of living. One I wish to take part in.

The second verse is about the future. “And hope for…” or “dream for” and shows a sense of yearning for a better future. It points out some of the flaws of Everyday life for people now like the wars being fought all over the world. The whimsical dream paired with the alluring guitar and drum beat make for a powerful track, one I see being in a teen movie like “10 things I hate about you” or “Ferris Bueller’s day off”. The song allows for a feeling of self empowerment. I feel sat here now, listening to it, that I can do everything and anything. Everyone deserves to feel this way, and I am thoroughly impressed that A Second Life have managed to capture the Essenes oft his feeling and turn it into something musically genius.

Overall, the latest single is by far the best and most meaningful done by the band A Second Life. I recommend listening when you feel down, because you won't stay that way for long. This band is on the rise and when they make it, we can only hope for more tracks this “The Moment”.

 

Interview with A Second Life

 

How do you know The Old School Project?

We found The Old School Project online. They have been Super supportive of our music!!

Who would you say are your main influences when writing music?

We have deep roots, our grandma was a blues singer. But when we write I’d say U2, 30 seconds to mars and Kings of Leon.

Are you full time Musicians or do you have jobs on the side?

Most of us are aspiring rockstars. I also run a successful personal training business. It’s important to have a lot of balls in the air.

Describe your Creative process. Is there a certain time or emotion needed to write?

Writing is like lighting. It strikes me. Then I write like crazy, after that I usually sit with Dan D to come up with the core of the song. Then our producer Rob Freeman polishes it.

How has your music evolved since the first time playing together?

It’s grown a lot, it’s all about feeling the music, learning each other’s vibe. As a band you have to constantly grow or your music won’t!


Since you've come so far ...

.... we would like to inform you about The Old School Project's operation. Over time, the number of people interested in The Old School Project has steadily increased. Unlike other websites and online media, the core of The Old School Project is not the well-known journalists and radio producers, but the young people in the field of journalism who nevertheless worthy of their place. Therefore, the resources for running The Old School Project, which requires time, money and hard work, come only from its physical place, the coffeehouse.

So to continue to provide our services to upcoming bands / artists, giving the opportunity to new journalists publish their articles, and to develop our innovative ideas, we ask you to devote a minute of your time and become a part of The Old School Project.

How did the band form?

My last band fizzled out, we did so much in such a short time, but most of the band had zero drive. They expected it to just come to them. So I decided to learn guitar in my off time and that was when I met Dan DelVecchio. We hit it of instantly. I didn’t tell him about my music until 6 months later as I didn’t want to talk about it but we had so many ideas to talk about and music just felt right.

Two is company, three is a crowd, describe how the band interacts and what happens when conflict arises.

Listen. The simple trick is to discuss the issues… we don’t really argue!

I like coffee and I like cake but I don’t like coffee cake. Tell me a weird thing you like separately but not together?

Lol I’ve never heard this question before! But I love ice cream and like soda but I hate ice cream soda… does this count?

If you could collaborate with anyone who would it Be? Are there any collaborations in the future?

Ahhhh, that’s easy. U2, but the edge if we have to narrow it down. I love the sound he Creates with his guitars, to me they are magical and they make me feel. At the moment we have no collaborations planned but that doesn’t mean we aren’t open to them!

Do you find yourself living by the phrase “live in the moment” or do you often live in the past or with thought of the future?

This one is my favourite question. So I believe a life lived without passion is a life not lived. So yes I live for the moments. Don’t wait for life to come to you. Make it happen!!

"The Moment" will be On Air 24/7 among other great song by A Second Life.

Follow the band... Support and Enjoy!
