No Gravity

By: Laurie Gallardo

Growing up in a religious household did restrict the types of music Daniel Fears could listen to for a time. But don’t get it twisted. The music still found Fears. Classical music was a first love for him, and playing at church services provided a foundation on which to nurture Fears’ performance skills. And that was only the beginning. Later exposure to R&B and hip-hop inspired Fears to compose his own music.

The EP Canopy is still an AMM favorite. But this week, Fears celebrates the release of his single “No Gravity” with a performance tonight, Friday Nov. 4, at Soundspace at Captain Quackenbush, 5326 Menchaca Rd. New Orleans-based artist Le Trainiump opens the show. Doors at 8:30 p.m.

You clearly hear Afie Jurvanen, better known as Nova Scotia-based artist Bahamas, attempting to record something, but his young daughters are not having it. “…Can […]
