SECOND STAGE SERIES
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2022
Pronounced Jah-see, Gyasi seems in many ways to come from another planet, and being raised in the woods of a West Virginia holler might as well be another planet in this day and age. His parents bought him a guitar at a local flea market when he was six years old and he still hasn’t gotten rid of the fleas, or the guitar. He approaches his music as an all-encompassing art piece, using fashion, storytelling, and his guitar to create a world for his music. His debut full length vinyl release is coming out on Alive Records in spring 2022. Inspired by a wide range of art and culture both past and present, his work is fueled by an undeniable passion to create music that brings rock n roll into the 21st century. Gyasi is a modern rock star like no other.
Rodney Bingenheimer : “We may not ever have another David Bowie or Marc Bolan but we've got Gyasi which is a step in the right direction. Make sure to see him live -- There's no room for boredom when Gyasi hits the stage!”
PASTE: “This man is an enigma to say the least, a glorious mixture of David Bowie and Marc Bolan with the slightest modern twist.”
AUDIO FUZZ: “If anyone can bring back Glam, it is this wonderful peacock.”
BEEHIVE CANDY: “This is a fine celebration of what rock music can still be.”
EMERGING INDIE BANDS: “Spears directly out of the golden age of UK rock’n’roll with its glittering bravado and unfettered self-confidence underpinned by technical competence.”
