New album "Rock n'roll Sword Fight" coming soon!
Recorded absolutely live in the USA, “Rock n’roll Sword Fight” captures the fun and exciting experience that is Gyasi (pronounced Jah-See) on stage. A flamboyant singer/guitarist/songwriter from Nashville, glam rocker Gyasi brings back the heavy sounds once pioneered by T-Rex, The Stooges and Led Zeppelin. This is raw power for new rock n’roll people. Play it loud!

Gyasi was raised in West Virginia, where his parents bought him a guitar from the local flea market. At the ripe age of six, he began learning how to play; on “23,” he shreds. His ripping guitar solo jolts the listener, adding a bit of overdrive to the eerie arrangement. Gyasi’s voice commands the track as much as his guitar. He sings with an authoritative yet playful tone, reminiscent of Mick Jagger on “Sympathy for the Devil.” – Daniel Mazzerina/LIGHTNING 100
Home run! Slam dunk! Touch down! Goal! ... I figured I wouldn't leave you in too much suspense—point blank, this album is fu**ing BRILLIANT! Alive Naturalsound Records has absolutely struck gold again by investing in, and having faith in Gyasi (Gyasi Heus) by releasing the artist's sophomore full-length studio effort, and what an absolutely smart choice it was. I would have to go as far as to say, that I would bet there were a lot of people waiting for someone to drop an album in this vein, of this caliber, since the 2003 release Get Born by the modern glam rockers from 'down under, 'Jet. – Tone Scott / GOLDMINE
CLASSIC ROCK : Tracks Of The Week
The legacies of Bowie and Bolan continue to reap new proteges, such as this Music City guy. Featuring Jack White band members and riff-loads of dirty 70s glitter, Baby Blue shares so much DNA with T.Rex’s 20th Century Boy they could have been separated at birth (the voice, the threads, the glammed up blues chords). It rocks like a monster, too, without taking itself too seriously (‘Got a rock n roll heart and babe you eat it with a spoon…what a loon’). Sassy, stompy glam rock fun, dripping in sequins and colourful eyeshadow. – Polly Glass
"If you`ve never heard of Gyasi before then his new Baby Blue EP will be a captivating introduction. This singer/guitarist/songwriter has the image, looks, licks, and moves, but also the talent." – Damian Sullivan / MAXIMUM VOLUME MUSIC
The lead track ("Baby Blue') is one Bolan boogie woogie hip shaker in spangly spandex and more make-up than Bowie wore. That riff is familiar but boy is it good, no it’s great. No scratch that, it’s fuckin great and the breakdown into the chorus is wonderful.
The other three tracks on offer are all live cuts that show the band have the chops when out on the road. ‘Cheap High’ is badd ass like when Aerosmith were out there kicking up a storm in the late ’70s an air of mystery but don’t fuck with them because these cats can play. The sleazier ‘Tongue Tied’ with its rolling beat is one monster sleazy tune before signing off with ‘Sugar Mama’ and all it’s bombast and glory. – Dom Daley / PRM Online
