BIOGRAPHY
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Emerging from suburban Toledo, Ohio, DARYNYCK has been bobbing heads and twitching legs of friends, strangers & local rockshow patrons since 2005 with their uniquely straightforward lo-fi/indie/pop/folk/rock-ish sound. The group is comprised of vocalists and multi-instrumentalists DARYN & NYCK. Their goal is to write memorable tunes with simple melodies that will persist in the listener's head, thanks to DARYN's attention to song arrangement and perfectionist attitude, and NYCK'S innate ability to harmonize and create exceptionally original melodies.

With influences ranging from the 1950s to the 2000s -- from the Beatles/Buddy Holly/Lovin' Spoonful to Elliot Smith/Guster/Coldplay/Fountains of Wayne/Green Day -- DARYNYCK'S sound can certainly be classified as "pop". They have no intention of blowing minds with complex guitar riffs and overly profound lyrics, and believe in a traditional songwriting approach: simple chords, memorable melodies, and a solid percussive beat. DARYNYCK's songs, with catchy hooks and easy-to-identify-with lyrics, parallel the boys' relaxed yet contemplative attitudes toward life, love and everyday occurrences. Their lo-fi, DIY recording process emphasizes songwriting over flashy, expensive equipment. However, DARYN is meticulous when it comes to song production, spending hours mixing, layering tracks, and experimenting with different sounds & effects. This combination of simple songwriting yet complex production results in a pleasantly uncommon listening experience.

For the live show, DARYN & NYCK share lead vocal duties while swapping guitar & drums throughout the set. A DARYNYCK performance may include any of the following: acoustic & electric guitars, bass, drums, handheld percussion, harmonica, trumpet, recorder, keyboard, and/or electronic drum loops. Their acoustic shows include various percussion instruments: djembe, water jug, tambourine, egg shakers & maracas. NYCK'S whistling solos and falsetto harmonies add to the unique--yet strangely familiar--well-arranged and raw DARYNYCK sound.

HISTORY
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When DARYN & NYCK first met as 2nd grade soccer teammates, they had no idea that their shared interests in He-Man and Sasquatch would eventually become shared interests in singing and songwriting. Fast-forward to junior year of high school when DARYN's fledgling guitar skills and NYCK's band & choir background led to a few homemade recordings and an unofficial musical partnership. Two college educations, a dismantled cover band, and countless temp jobs later, DARYN and NYCK began to write and record again in late 2005, and their musical team was officially formed. They made a name for themselves in their hometown local Toledo music scene throughout 2006, and 2007 brought them to Columbus where they quickly began playing local clubs. DARYNYCK's official debut, "The Sasquatch Sessions: 2001-2005, Vols. I & II", is a 17-song double-disc compilation of some of their earliest songs, and was released in Spring 2008.

nyck: lead vox
gabe: harmonica, claps, backing vox

you're so outta time
but you said you liked it
for no reason at all
two at a time
and it's over for you
it's over what you do

you wanted the world for you, and
everyone said, you got it goin baby

every time you rock it
into your pocket
the world gets chaotic
you're so good to go
but you don't even know
no don't not do it, no

you got it x3
yeah

you wanna go with the flow
but it's flowin for you
you gotta do what you mean to do
you said to me you've got it
under control
but you don't know what you've got

you wanted the world for you, and
everyone said, you got it goin baby

you say you got it
under control
but you're so chaotic
the girl with the world is
unraveling slowly
she's not not gonna explode

WOAH x4

you wanna go, but you don't know
and you don't know, if you wanna go
you wanna go, but you don't know
and you don't know, if you wanna go

it's sad, when you think
that you think to yourself
you're not gonna do it baby
you say you got it
under control
but you're so chaotic

no matter who you are x8

in the spaces between dreams
when the souls of two lovers bind
love is what sews the seams

da da-da da-da...

and I will love you
will you love me too
I will love you
will you love me too
forever, and forever
oh forever, and forever

love is what’s left at the end
love is what’s left (at the end)
love is what’s left at the end
love is what’s left (at the end)

new city lights, i awaken in the night,
one hundred fifty miles from home.
from home, unknown, where the grass always has grown.
cannot bear to comprehend, the future again.

and if you decide to take care of life,
i will stay, i will stay, by your side.
but if you decide to live the same life,
i must leave, and be free, oh i must for me.

middle of the night, you awaken you are frightened
to know not to know, what will be.
what will be, we will see, i just hope you'll be happy.
be happy, that's the goal for you and me.

and if you decide to take care of life,
i will stay, i will stay, by your side.
but if you decide to live the same life,
i must leave, and be free, oh i must for me.

but know that what you feel is wrong.

helpless beneath the cloud.
falling down in a grownup world.

know that you need to get better.
know that the love for you is strong.
know that we want you to feel better.
but know that what you feel is wrong.

i wanna help you--no i mean no harm.
i saw you throw that phone last night.
oh yeah, i really want to sit and talk with you,
but i say “see you later,” and i hide away from it.

i saw you cryin again tonight.
i wanna help you but i just don’t know.
no you need to realize what is wrong,
oh and you're not the only one.

know that you need to get better.
know that the love for you is strong.
know that we want you to feel better.
but know that what you feel is wrong...

nobody ever told you it was fair.

walkin' down this twisted road...

well now i'm gettin older as the months and years roll by.
so come with me. the dreams i see... let's fly.
goodbye...

daryn: yamaha drum loop, acoustic guitars, bass, keyboard, shaker, crash cymbal, lead vox
nyck: backing vox

workin hard, goin nowhere
nowhere else that i can go
get a job, make lots of money
where do you wanna go

searchin for the signs, lookin for some answers
what's a man to do

go to college study hard
do the best that you can do
get a job, make a lot of money
do everything they want you to

dont get robbed, get a real job
make your rounds in the neighborhood
future's now tell me how
do it right make them feel good

searchin for the signs, lookin for some answers
what's a man to do

no matter what you do
no matter what you say
you never ever know
if things are gonna be ok

over mountains
waiting for the sun
let's do somethin
that hasn't already been done
hasn't already been done...

searchin for the signs, lookin for some answers
what's a man to do, oh
this could be the one do you know for certain
i can't wait around no more... no more

no matter what you do
no matter what you say
you never ever know
if things are gonna be ok

Make Some Music

Written By: wesenberg

daryn: acoustic & electric guitars, bass, harmonica, shaker, lead vox
nyck: drums, djembe, backing vox

so you been thinkin, bout startin a band
you’re sick of workin for the man
you wanna learn some chords, and write a tune
practice every day and pretty soon, you’ll be

makin music
make some music
just make... some... music

you wanna rock and roll on the guitar
and one day you could be a star
bang on some drums, let’s have some fun
make a simple beat and maybe one day you’ll be

makin music
make some music
just make... some... music

for you & me, it’s nothing fancy
I’m just in the mood for something pretty
sweet, a ditty, we’ll jam in the city
all night long
all night long
oh, all... night... long

Pure & True

Written By: wesenberg/renze

daryn: acoustic guitars, tabletop, tambourine, pen, lead vox
nyck: whistling, backing vox

i'll admit that i can't hide
it's a battle deep inside there
and all i can do is say a prayer

well give me strength
give me power
washin it all away in the shower

no guilty pleasure here it’s pure and true
cause i know me but you don't know you
feel the water runnin down my back
it's enough to keep me on the track

well i'm here, and i'm alive
and there's nothing you can do, i will thrive

no guilty pleasure here it’s pure and true
cause i know me but you don't know you
feel the water and i reflect
am i the only one who will give me the respect, the respect

i don't care i'll be your friend
i don't hold grudges but you'll do it again
i mean it'll happen again
but in the end i will be sane

where will everyone else be
where will everyone else be
hiding, hiding, confused, alone and hurt
hiding, hiding, confused, alone and hurt

so sorry you thought i was the prude
so sorry i was confused

sorry to say i knew all along
now who do you have now that I’m gone

Without You, It's True

Written By: wesenberg

daryn: acoustic guitars, water jug, lead vox, rainstorm
nyck: backing vox

well I won’t spend the night without you
no I won’t spend the night without you

I’ll take you by the hand
take me by the hand

cause I won’t let the night slip away
no I won’t let the night slip away without you

without you, it’s true it’s true
without you, it’s true it’s true

I’ll take you by the hand
take me by the hand

take my hand, take my hand
take my hand, my hand, my hand
take my hand, oh take my hand
take my hand, my hand, my hand

oh cause I won’t feel the same for the days
no I won’t feel the same for the days, for the days

without you, it’s true, it’s true
without you, it’s true, it’s true
I hope you’ll come around
I hope you’ll come around

Alive

Written By: wesenberg/debord

daryn: acoustic guitar, bass, keyboard, floor tom, tambourine, shaker, backing vox
nyck: electric guitar, floor tom, lead vox

every breath, we’re closer to the last
too many days spent thinkin about the past
where you stand is where you are
what lies ahead, lies not too far

every step draws you nearer to yourself
don't be afraid, for the world is here to help
alone you feel many times a day
it's always here and here it will stay

happy I am in times of doubt
I feel free, and I just wanna shout
with such feelings I tend to thrive
and now I feel I'm mostly alive
and now I feel I'm mostly alive

there's no cure for this feeling we hate
a feeling so true, that's why it's so great
alone you feel many times a day
it's always here and here it will stay

happy I am in times of doubt
I feel free, and I just wanna shout
with such feelings I tend to thrive
and now I feel I'm mostly alive
and now I feel I'm mostly alive
and now I feel I'm mostly alive
and now I feel I'm mostly alive
