Album on itunes and cdbaby BABY!

Filed under: Music Genres,Updates — Hope on April 10, 2011 @ 3:27 pm

Hello beautifuls,

My long awaited album, Waking Up the Ruins, is now available on itunes and cdbaby ! It’s $9.99 on itunes and $7.99 on cdbaby, of course one can also choose to download individual tracks. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 3 years since we recorded the album. I am currently in the studio working on my next one, which shouldn’t take as long as this one, but all in due time. ;) As always thanks for listening!

Update 3-27-11

Hello there!

A lot is going on as of late. The guys and I have been gigging quite frequently. We just had 3 shows in March! We’ve also been writing a lot of new tunes that we are all pretty stoked about. And if you missed out on the shows, don’t worry I’ve spent hours editing the videos and uploading them onto youtube. ;) Here’s a link to one of our newest songs, Games, from our recent performance at Best Buy in Chelsea, NYC. Also, I’ve been working on getting my first album, Waking Up the Ruins, on itunes and CDBaby for download. I’ll blast the internet when it’s available. Until then if you are interested in seeing the lyrics and album credits for the album you can simply click on the Album tab of this website and find that each song title has a link to the lyrics.

Cheerio!

Friday, the 25th, Best Buy!

Roam

Roam Band

So I hit up Rockwood Music Hall this past Sunday night, August 22nd, to go see some old friends perform in their newly formed band, Roam (which can be found here: www.facebook.com/Roamband). I have heard Jimmy (James Reeves) sing before, which is always pretty undeniably captivating, but this new ensemble is indeed something to make note of. There are 3 electric guitarists playing all at the same time, which creates an incredible euphoric experience, along with drums, in which the drummer, Joshua Brown, not only drums…but sings magical harmonies, backing up James. These rock songs aren’t your normal rock songs, they are lined with lyrics of love, longing and passion. They even switched gears at one point, from the edgy tunes, to do a folk song, in which one of the other guitarists, Paulo (I believe), revealed his amazing vocals as well. The talent in these dapper young rockstars is quite undeniable. I highly recommend you resist any silly urge not to check them out on Facebook…here: www.facebook.com/Roamband

My work here is done.

Benjamin

Hello there,
Several people have asked that I post the lyrics to the song Benjamin, from the album “Waking Up the Ruins”. For those that care here they are and sorry for the delay. ;)
Have a beautiful day!

Benjamin, you went away
Benjamin, I never thought you’d stay
Cause you played your guitar like you didn’t love me
You held my hand like it wasn’t there
When you looked at me you were starin’ above me
I always knew it wasn’t there
Benjamin, you were never mine
Benjamin, it wasn’t wasted time
It’s water now under the bridge
Elementary, it all makes sense
How could I resent you, you were young
High school love was just for fun
With my heart now I easily see
Ben your love how it brings me ease

But you who are, yeah you know your name
Caught me off guard, said you felt the same
I took your word and now I’m scarred
A chance I took with love in your arms
Don’t always know what’s goin’ on
I can’t pretend to be so strong
I’m older now and what have I to show
A broken heart and where can I go
May never understand how it works
Perhaps one day it won’t hurt

You my after-youth heartache
I loved you with everything at stake
Benjamin, at least you told me straight
Benji Boy, you didn’t play with fate

Benjamin, I liked your name
Benjamin, you were a pretty face
But I found love after you
I found love after you
I knew deep down you weren’t for me
Benjamin, we knew it couldn’t be

Benjamin, ‘least losing you made sense
