Fresh new songs all feature the genuine articles - nothing sampled, artificial, or synthetic - just flesh and blood musicians playing real instruments, and a soulful and sincere singer. Isn't that how music should be?
SIXTEEN tracks, yes 16, that's almost like getting a two-disc album!

If you want to get hooked, just give a listen to the sound clips.
"Fly Away" is the debut album of up-and-coming pop/rock vocal talent Brian Acosta who was singing with a San Francisco band in recent years. This CD shows his singing versatility in an array of radio-ready songs. This heartwarming and toe-tapping CD covers the spectrum from guitar-dominated rockers to acoustic ballads to fully orchestrated pop/rock gems behind this multitalented and soulful singer.
Brian was born in Manila in 1982, in an environment rich with music. Various family members play musical instruments. His mother plays the piano, one of his uncles is a drummer, and one of his brothers plays guitar. Brian himself would later take on keyboards, drums and guitar, but his main musical instrument is his voice. He started singing very early at age four. At twelve, singing in the church choir gave him his first taste of performing in public.
Growing up in the Philippines, Brian was influenced by a variety of music from the West, from rock to soul/R&B to gospel. He cites the Beatles and Stevie Wonder among the artists he admires. During high school, he really caught the performing bug when enthusiastic audiences wildly applauded him at his earliest secular singing appearances. Their response gave him a "certain kind of rush" he never felt before. "It felt pretty good to hear people scream their approval," he recalls.
Brian moved to the United States in 2000. He became the lead vocalist in a San Francisco cover band and expanded his range of styles even further, singing in such diverse genres as country & western and hip hop. During this time, Rockinetics Records discovered him and would later produce Brian's first CD, "Fly Away".
The recording studio team includes Brian Acosta (lead vocals), Randel Chow (lead guitar), Gary Brown (rhythm guitar), Hank Middisen (keyboard), Larry Weissenborn (bass), Paul Johnson (drums), and background vocalists Roz Coffey, Rachel Down, Tobias Carna, and Mike Shandin. Special contributions by Richard Leder (trumpet), Scott Hartman (French horn), Monte Benaresh, (violin & viola), and George Winter (cello).
