Article by Kyla Wyllie Someone tell me what’s in the water at Play-Yah Records, and where can I get some for myself? Yet another band paving the way for girls in music, the San Diego natives of rock band, Be All, End All, recently released their debut music video for their song, “The Single.” Directed by Christopher Macken (who also directed A Blessing In Disguise, by Dylan Earl & The Reasons Why) and produced by Zak Mouton & Ryan Frailich of Play Yah Records, the video follows lead singer Carls Vertongen, who plays an on-duty lifeguard, throughout her day as she is constantly pestered by one of the beach-goers (played by lead guitar, Jack Severson). Switching back and forth between the band and the beach, this music video is not only well made, but entertaining to watch. Now I won’t spoil the plot for you, but lets just say things don’t end well for Severson.
Article written by Kyla Wyllie One of the many talented groups to come out of Play-Yah Records, Dylan Earl & The Reasons Why add a smooth and country-esque tone to the diverse recordings that take place in Los Angeles’ very own Route 2 Studios. The band’s single, “Blessing in Disguise,” spills it’s western twang into the, previously unreleased, music video (directed by Christopher Macken and produced by Play Yah Records’ Zachary Mouton.)
Passage Written by Kyla Wyllie Can we take a moment to appreciate raw talent? Because that’s all I hear when I listen to the new song by up and coming artist Arigato Amigo (AKA Cameron Burt). I can’t tell what genre of music this falls into, but that just makes it even better. A perfect song to space out to, this track is full of the smooth jazz style guitar and percussion that people love, yet it can’t be classified as “smooth jazz.” Whatever it is, I really dig it and hope you will too.
