From a world where music has become played out and predictable, comes a new, fresh sound; a sound that can only emanate via the band F.Y.B. (For You Brother).
This songwriter/musician machine writes and performs songs you love at the speed of light in their South Carolina studios.
The multifaceted duo, John Davis and Melvin Blakely, are garnering fans by ushering in a new era of music, tinged with the style of Jimmy Hendrix and flavored with rock and even at times hip hop. Itâ€™s about time the music world got a taste of this band.
