Biography

Bio 2012
Tamsyn Forlong
DOB:16-02-1994

Tamsyn’s music allows the world into the war inside her head. Between rich passionate low tones and energetic strong high intensity, her thick lyrical, original composition renditions both bring you into deep thought and send you into a raging plot, induced by real life relatable situations. Tamsyn’s music is highly influenced by how she perceives movies (Sucker punch), feels music (Oh Sleeper) and deals with turmoil in her life. She uses metaphorical imagery to communicate a message she is desperate to share. Highly influenced by hard core music such as the charm the fury, The devil Wears Prada, House vs Hurricane and We came as Romans Her vision is for a band that leans into many conflicting styles in the future.Tamsyn’s song Emma featured on the To The Nation CD. This song won best song at Rock Quest 2010 and with this CD it won Rock Shop album of the year in 2011. It now feature’s on the Play It Strange album 2012. Mike Chunn then created the opportunity for an interview with MoreFM and “Emma’s” first ear play. Emma was then on a LifeFM competition and was play a few times.

Mike then flew Tamsyn and guitarist Jared Stevenson
(from The Latest Fall Out) down to Wellington to play
at Government house. This was filmed by
Breakfast TV Three. Mike Chunn told Tamsyn and
Jared their performance was “a ten out of ten.”
Mike Chunn wrote about latest song Velvet envelope:
“strong song and performance.Great title too. I think titles are important.Tamsyn 'projects' herself so well.
She could take on any stage anywhere. I 'liked' the sonic bids page.”

While in the band Vision by Truth she opened
for The Esther Melody Band. And then in the band
From Thy Descent she performed at Fonterra Shout,Recognize
Youth Awards, and Christmas in the park,
Rock Quest Regional’s, Xtend, Parachute, and many
fundraisers. Though new to music, it is wear God
has called her. And this year at Excel School Of
Performing Arts she has been emirs in it.

Lyrics

Velvet Envelope

Written By: Tamsyn Forlong 2012

Your liquorish bugs inhaled her thoughts
Left her mind with but a velvet envelope
Bird’s drunken laughter hung over her
From the Calvary’s arms
They dropped fragments of past falters
Into the cracks of her cares
She knows the need but if she let her fingers
Sink beneath the seal
you would surly sing to them
She shaback, I need, I need
Running with a velvet envelope
Violent maroon story’s she sees them on
Your shoulder, they tell of your kiss
Of beckoning throwing her down the stares
Putting her out on her word
But still she knows the need and will not
Cradle it at her lips, it must burst ford
She knows the need but if she let her fingers
Sink beneath the seal
They would shrivel back into her hands
She shaback, I need, I need
Running with a velvet envelope
And now you clench shuddering teeth tight
Afraid they’ll chip from the almighty power of his Holy splendor
Her shout of praise has dispelled any fear you had arisen
She shaback, such royal colored love I shell not conceal
The white army spills from her joy
For it has been told you will fear
The sons and daughters of the most high
She shaback, I need, I need
Running with a velvet envelope

Emma

Written By: Tamsyn Forlong (Band From Thy Descent) 2011

Verse: When I was little I thought that life was simple
And if you let it archly is
But I chose to make it difficult
And this song is my only way to express

1 Course: I’m just a two faced demon
Trying so hard to surrender my ways
From this life I’ve broken
I have no heart just an empty space inside

Verse: I’ve always wanted to be a good example
But my selfishness is taking over
I don’t wona be a crowed follower
But I gess that’s were I’m going if I’m

2 Course: I’m just a two faced demon
Trying so hard to surrender my ways
From this life I’ve broken
I have no heart just an empty space inside
It wasn’t worth the broken hearts and feeling
It did not fill the hole in my chest
I wona stand for this one thing
But I can’t even stand for my self

Bridge: Emma I’m sorry
Emma I slipped up again
Emma I’m sorry
Emma let’s try again
Emma we can’t fix it
Emma you know that Jesus can

Thy Hold You

Written By: Tamsyn Forlong 2010

They hold you
They hold you
They hold you
The angels
They hold you

There’s got to be a better way of solving this then leaving us
There’s got to be a better way than folding this pain
Yea you ran away
Yea you ran away hey aye from life

Well bye skipping half your life you’re braking most every promise that you’ve made
You left us behind asking on the ground we lay
Yea you ran away
Yea you ran away hey aye from life

They hold you
They hold you
They hold you
The angels
They hold you

No I won’t let you fade now
No I won’t let you fade now
No I won’t let you fade now
No I won’t let you fade now

They hold you
They hold you
They hold you
The angels
They hold you
