FlyLiteGemini - 'My Greatest Love'
Review by Ionas Finser & Staff
FlyLiteGemini play and sing every song with passion and intensity as they create a unique musical experience encompassing themes of love, hope, and the soul's journey through dark and light. Drummer Sam Rice and bassist Zach Potter form a driving rhythm section that will have you tapping your foot or hitting the dance floor, laying the foundation for Joe Chamberlin's Hendrix-like guitar solos and Nate Karnes classic rock keys. The band's tight vocal harmonies soar in choruses that will lift you up and make you want to sing along! FlyLiteGemini's debut album was released in October of 2017,and was nominated for Best Blues/Soul album, Best Album from a New Artist, and Album of the Year at the 2018 South West Michigan Jammie Awards. The band released their 2nd album “Bigger on the Inside” in July of 2019. FlyLiteGemini is Joe Chamberlin, Sam Rice, Zach Potter, and Nate Karnes. The band's song "My Greatest Love" is featured on National Indie Radio's Global Citizen Benefit Special.
A fast-paced guitar progression kicks off “My Greatest Love”, with upbeat keyboard and high-octane drums trailing close behind. Joe Chamberlin’s lead vocals perpetuate this energy, delivering catchy, natural phrases to accompany the exciting mix. The mood of the song is notably happy, with a subtle sense of nostalgic reverence drizzled in. “My Greatest Love” will have you moving your shoulders and singing along in no time.
Lyrically, FlyLiteGemini brings us an optimistic take on the experience of longing for a loved one while on the road. A lesson of holding onto the bright side of life, “My Greatest Love” reminds us that there are always better days on the horizon, and it doesn’t help to dwell on negative energy.
“Feels like I've been on the road so long,
For all the things that I have lost and I have found.
Just trying to be, be here now,
Pick myself if I'm feeling down on the way.”
This song will have you falling in love in no time. There is something uniquely broad and reassuring about the mood in its entirety, much like the kind of music you might hear in a movie’s road trip montage scene. The message isn’t blatantly obvious, yet it asks the listener to rethink their cynicism or doubts, and approach life with wide, fresh eyes.
