Biography

Burnt out on the heavy rock scene and down a member, Joe Glaser, Nick Snow, and Aaron Cordell set out to redefine their music and reach out to a new, expanded audience. The result was a fusion of acoustic rock, folk, and backwoods country.

At times, one might call it "swamp folk." Songs tell tales of wrestling alligators and canoe trips gone wrong, all set to a rock soundtrack with its roots in outlaw country. Influences range from Tom Petty and Alice in Chains to Bobby Mackey and other classic country artists.

No Sorrow does also have a modern side; acoustic-driven rock with pop sensibility and powerful harmonies. Listener-friendly sound meets thoughtful lyrics, creating a musical message for the masses just asking for mainstream radio play.

While songwriting and performing original music is the main focus of the band, you can also catch No Sorrow paying the bills playing 10 pm to 2 am at your favorite local bars. No Sorrow cover shows are upbeat and consistently energetic with sets full of songs that keep the crowd on its feet and singing along.

Maybe original music is your thing, or maybe you prefer to have a few drinks and work on your backing vocals ... Either way, No Sorrow is your band.

Lyrics

No Sorrow

Written By: Joe Glaser

Come on down to the Outback Crab Shack
Bucket full of crab in a jet black Cadillac
Pour another beer and have another heart attack
Everybody dies so why try to prevent it?

Life aint easy when you’re livin so hard
Pullin' fish all day, slingin' grease in the backyard
Ran outta butter so I used pure lard …
To make your welcome home cake, welcome to the graveyard.

Makes no difference rain or shine
Either we’re livin life
Don’t worry how I spend my time …
Cuz you’re not livin mine

Swamp boat buzzin like a big bee in a crick
Lightin up the night with a bright glowin cancer stick
Take another drag, then let your pa have a hit
Everybody dies inside before their body quits.

Soul rise up to the great divide …
Two crooked paths and you can’t see the other side
Sober can’t sleep but drunk can’t drive.
Waitin on fate, just tryin to catch a free ride.

Makes no difference rain or shine
Either way we’re livin life
Don’t worry how I spend my time …
Cuz you’re not livin mine

Dancin with a crocodile down in the sand …
Death roll dizzy but I still don’t understand
Which is the path of the righteous man …
And which one burns like a fish in a fryin pan.

Tight-rope walkin’ cross the great divide …
Flip a tin coin with nothin on either side
Snakes on the ground and fire in the sky
Bottle in my hand, no sorrow in my eyes.

Whitewater, White Lightning

Written By: Joe Glaser

We headed out early that day, the sun was baking down.
The river was a ramblin’, as we headed out of town.
We drank booze on this hillbilly cruise as the shoreline moved along.
But when I looked back and saw the sky was black,
I knew something was wrong.
Some were concerned, some were just sunburned, still others had no clue
We can ride this out, I heard somebody shout, but better than that I knew
My lovely wife, girlfriend at the time, was starting to look pale
So we paddled like a nun at a catholic school and prayed that it wouldn’t hail.

White water, white lightning
Mix them both together, things get frightening.
Don’t drink whiskey when you drive
If you wanna stay alive
And don’t drink moonshine underneath the sun.

The lightning struck around us, but we weren’t in the mood to dance
The wind insisted that we stop, my mind was in a trance
I saw a capsized canoe, owners lookin’ scared as sin.
A snake’s inside our boat, y’all know much about water moccasins?
Then we wrecked into a mud wall, I had trouble scalin' up
I pulled my girl up by her hands and she stepped deep in some mud
The hail began to come down and I briefly heard her cry
This mud wasn’t mud at all, guess she doesn’t like cow pie

White water, white lightning
Mix them both together, things get frightening.
Don’t drink whiskey when you drive
If you wanna stay alive
And don’t drink moonshine underneath the sun.

We ran along the tree line tryin' our best not to get struck
When up upon the hill I saw an old red Chevy truck
We hopped inside, that might have saved our lives, I knew we’d be safe there
That ol’ flatbed was a blessing, straight outta yesteryear.

White water, white lightning
Mix them both together, things get frightening.
Don’t drink whiskey when you drive
If you wanna stay alive
And don’t drink moonshine underneath the sun.

This songs more about cabrewin then bought stillin alcohol
Or maybe it’s about them both take this wisdom with y'all
The reason it’s called moonshine's cause it’s best left drunk at night
And never hit the river if a storm’s somewhere in sight.

White water, white lightning
Mix them both together, things get frightening.
Don’t drink whiskey when you drive
If you wanna stay alive
And don’t drink moonshine underneath the sun.
