Oh my God, if you believe in reincarnation, then Gyasi IS Marc Bolan, or else channeling him. Seriously, if you love Glam Rock (Slade, T Rex, Sweet, Bowie), then you will love Gyasi. His riffs alone are enough to send you into the stratosphere. His bio explains it all:
In the wild woods of West Virginia, in an isolated hollow, a young boy thought he was a peacock. When he realized, much to his dismay, that he was not a peacock, he picked up a guitar. From then on the sounds of him loudly playing along to the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix could be heard echoing through the hollow.
laced between roaming peacocks, a family of Russian intellectual revolutionaries, and two parents dedicated to living off the land, Gyasi was brought up in an environment that could only be described as unique. It was an isolated world, where life felt more like the 60s than the 90s.
Between his father’s early blues 78 collection and the Velvet Underground and T. Rex records of the Russian family next door, his musical education was rich. The world is sorely lacking in rock stars. GYASI is a rock star.
This is so true. I love Gyasi. If anyone can bring back Glam, it is this wonderful peacock.
