Biography

It's music that fits a mood, sometimes it's a happy one, other times, it's somber. Whatever the mood maybe, you can count on the song being sincere and delivered with soul. Former frontman of Ja Fizz, a jam outfit that garnered such attention to merit a Best Jamband award at the 2004 Asbury Music Awards; Chad has ever been a songwriter. Early inspirations came from the music heard around the house; James Taylor, the Beatles, John Denver, Cat Stevens. A sound filld with folk-angst and blue-eyed inspiration would be firmly planted as a seed to the musical map he now reads from. Hard at work for the past year at Ostropotamus Studios, he will release a full length album at the end of the summer. Look for songs that span a spectrum of taste; a funky, folk rock jam, a gospel ballad, a country twanged piece, among many others. The Chad Bauer Band is his current live band. Joined by bassist Paul Parker, dummer Marcus Croan, and the newest member, guitarist Jim Parker, they look forward to what the future holds....more songs that Chad will write, holding nothing back.

Lyrics

It Just Ain't Cool

Written By: Chad Bauer

Sneaky Susan, you've been running around on your man.
A coy suggestion, that ain't your best plan.
You can tell him stories to cover up your tracks,
But actions speak louder than words and that's a known fact.
Would you always be such a fool?
I'd mind my own business, but what you're doing,
It jut ain't cool.

Predict a future where you're feeling pain,
But I also think you'll keep playing this game.
It's not a matter of emotions,
you're stone cold at heart.
You'll always be a heratbreaker, he should've known from the start.

Lying Lilly, if that's even you're real name.
Is it plausible to think that you are gonna try to tame?
You work his wallet bare to the thread, bare to the bone,
But when he's all dried up you find another man, another home.
Would you always be such a fool?
I'd mind my own business, but what you're doing,
It just ain't cool.

Predict a future where you're feeling pain,
But I also think you'll keep playing this game.
It's not a matter of emotion,
You're stone cold at heart.
You'll always be a heartbreaker,
He should've known from the start.

Grow Free

Written By: Chad Bauer

Pack your things, get out the door,
Don't look back here anymore, time to live free
Forget what you learned, what you heard said,
Sleepless nights sitting up in bed, thinkin’ bout who you are
Take this ticket and hit the road
Gotta leave this place before you explode, time ain't on your side
Did ya always used to think you'd be
A hero that would go down in history, you still have a chance

Don't wait to see all that you can be
You can start today livin’ in a different way
Let your truth known, don't leave unturned a single stone

Walk toward, the open door, everything you wanted is lying outside

Plant a seed inside your soul
Give it some water, watch it grow, shine light upon your face
Outside where the air is clear
You can feel your thoughts getting near, this is the time to remember
Not the ones stuck inside
A web of tangled messy lies, set them all free
Hope is in the atmosphere
Millions of miles for you to steer, no map needed

Don't wait to see all that you can be
You can start today livin in a different way
Let your truth known, don't leave unturned a single stone

Walk toward, the open door, everything you wanted is lying outside

When the World Stops Spinning

Written By: Chad Bauer

It's been said, be careful what you wish for,
Everybody's always wanting more.
It's been said, don't look behind,
Stare straight ahead onto dreams that you will find.

When the world stops spinning,
You gotta look down.

Be careful what you wish for,
Everybody's always wanting more.

It's been said don't pay no attention,
Live your life on your own personal vacation.
It's been said, don't look to the top,
Work yourself ragged, ain't you never gonna stop.

When the world stops spinning,
You gotta look down.

Be careful what you wish for,
Everybody's always wanting more.

When the world stops spinning,
You gotta look down.
