ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Seamlessly integrating hip-hop, heavy rock-metal, jazz-funk, and soul, Flow Down Street Six busts out onto the scene with their own kind of groove- ‘Heavy-Jam Jazz-Hop.’

Imagine rap vocals with counterpart female singing, a rhythmic combination that melds funky bass lines with intense rock drumming, crunchy-flirty guitar lines, jazzy key layers, and sweet sax melodies jumping all over between. If it was food, the band would be a modern fusion cuisine that was tasty, but still healthy for you... and, it could be catered for your next party.

It's Flow Down Street Six. And why all of these different genres into one? Actually, the members of Flow Down really had no choice.

The group formed some years back, while all attending Bucknell University... a college campus in the middle of nowhere. Consequently, a crazy metal drummer was forced to play with a jazz pianist, who had no other option than to try and groove with a hip-hop MC...and so on.

So how different are these people, really?

Ladies first of course-- vocalist Amanda Brecker of East Hampton, NY. The jaw-dropping singer was brought up in a musical household, consisting of Grammy award winners Randy Brecker (The Brecker Brothers) and Brazilian jazz pianist/vocalist Elaine Elias. Already living through all of the ins and outs of music life since birth, she's one of a few artists who actually finds a picket fence to be glamorous.

The band’s MC, John Blake, is from Northern New Jersey and started rhyming before he was walking. This man, totally passionate about life and appreciated by all who come in contact with him, shoots out optimism faster than the caps which penetrate various domes which he occasionally touches on within his compositions.

When it comes down to it, Adam Ahuja is basically searching for the truth, which means that he has an uncontrollable need to check out new places, people, and perspectives... thus he ended up in a multi-genre band playing 2-3 instruments.

TC Maslin, the rhythm guitarist, was raised without electricity in the woodlands of West Virginia (his parents were huge hippies). Fortunately, a plastic-less upbringing helped him develop both general insight and a unique style of guitar playing without a pick.

Ben Fisher is extremely structured. However, when not gluing the band itself together, he plays saxophone. As a child in the suburbs of Maryland, Ben was heavily influenced by a number of jazz and blues legends, as well as modern pop-jam icons such as the Dave Matthew’s Band.

Historically misplaced classic rock bass-phenom Ryan Anderson is is a wacky engineer who likes to make absurd jokes and regularly taunt himself. He also looks exactly like Harry Potter.

Finally- beatmaker and US Marine Ed "Winkyface" Cywinski grew up in Central Pennsylvania, where he taught himself an abrasive drumming style which not only helped whiz him through the Armed Services, but also inadvertently melts numerous faces at live gigs along the way. Think the likes of Sevendust’s Morgan Rose or Dream Theater’s Mike Portnoy.

This slightly insane mix of people, Flow Down Street Six, have finished their first piece of work, appropriately entitled “The Synthesis”-- now available world-wide. The record consists of nine original tunes of their own fresh sound. So, eat it up, enjoy it, digest it, get seconds... and don't be afraid to go get your face melted.

Smooth, but Not as a Constant (Which is Good).
I don't consider myself a jazz person, but the music (except for hardcore jazz,) takes me back to better times. This is certainly one of them. Good vocals and instrument execution, but like I said, I don't consider myself a jazz person, so I only listen to this once in a while. I still hope Flow Down Street Six becomes a well known name though.
