Biography

Rally For One is a Long Beach, California based band that has been performing together since 2007. Hailing from all over the country Brett, John, Blake and Marty come from a unique blend of musical backgrounds. 4-part vocal harmony is the driving force behind Rally’s signature sound, bringing a refreshingly musical element to the pop rock genre. Their debut album, "Dreamin'", was released in August 2008 and flawlessly showcases each of the band member’s individual strengths in songwriting, proficiency on their instruments and distinct vocal styles.

In their three years of existence, Rally For One has booked in 31 states, along with a mini-tour to England. Audiences are always left wanting more of the guys’ fun, energetic music and presence after a show. Rally’s sophomore album,"4 Sides to Everything", was released in September 2009 and reveals the band’s transformation into a more mature, established sound.

Looking ahead, Rally For One will release a brand new 5-song EP in Spring 2011 along with booking their 7th national tour.

Lyrics

Bob Ya' Head

Written By: Rally For One

Hey everybody in the place to be
Makin' you move is our specialty ,with a new sound so get up and get down

Droppin' in from the East Coast,so much soul
My momma always said I had no control
Got music in my blood, it's a drug in my veins
Flows through my body and controls my brain

Well I'm no shy guy from the Midwest
Came out to California and I'm here to impress
Follow me and stay close behind
I'm livin' this dream one day at a time

I'm B-rett, I bleed red
I'm a Husker fan until I die
Give me corn-fed steak and apple pie

Pre Chorus:
Put a guitar in my hand
Don't sit get up and stand
And if the feeling's c'mon and dance tonight
Bob Ya' Head to the beat like this

Chorus:
Bob ya' head, c'mon, bob ya' head
c'mon, c'mon, c'mon and just bob ya' head
bob ya' head, c'mon like we said
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon and just bob ya' head

See the girl in the corner in blue
She be dyin' to dance with you
Take her hand, be a man, don't worry if you can't dance we got the groove

First we're gonna drop a little beat like this
So when your feet hit the floor they just can't resist
Then when you got nothin' left to do, Bob your head just like we do

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

(repeat Pre-chorus and chorus)

Hold On

Written By: Rally For One

I've been lookin' for a sign, a place to keep within my heart
A place that I know deep inside, always pushes through the dark
And it carries me, just to hold on

Well I saw the other day, in a world inside yourself
Are you lookin' far away, are you bein' someone else
Oh my baby, you, gotta hold on

Chorus:
Hold on, when nobody's there you gotta
Hold on, when everything's fading out
When you feel like you can't go on, baby, hold on

I know it's weighing on your mind and your future you don't see
But everything I wanna find, everything I wanna be
Is here with you, so lets go on

Chorus

I look outside of my window
Everyone's waiting to go
It's gonna be alright, if you stay here tonight
You know, you know, you know you gotta hold on

Chorus

Happy

Written By: Rally For One

Call me, just call me tonight
I'm sorry, so sorry tonight
Shouldn't have said all the things that I did
Now I wish you were here with me so I could...

You hate it when I wear my favorite shirt everyday
I have to hide it from you so you do not throw it away

I can't stand you, but I can't get enough

Chorus:
I don't get you, and you don't get me
But somehow we make each other happy (2x)

Out to dinner and you always want the most expensive item
You piss our waiter off and then you expect me to fight him, Oh no
I should construct my very own remote control
So I could mute all of your friends during the Super Bowl

To understand you, is pretty tough

Chorus

You keep running through my head
And I keep thinking bout' what you said
And I want change, and you won't change
We're too damn stubborn to not stay the same

Chorus
