Biography

Indianapolis-based TWR's ambient, folk rock sound has become a staple in the Indiana music scene. With help from dedicated fans, Indy 500 Records, and Hidden Relic Productions, they've gone from searching for dates to touring the Midwest.

The Waldemere Revival started with just a vision of creating music for friends and family. Their roots can be traced back to the actual name of the band Waldemere Avenue, the street in which Corey Flick and Steve Martin grew up together as brothers on the west side of Indianapolis, IN. The brothers' passion for their craft was based on a single, simple notion; "We're going to make music that actually speaks to the people, music that has real purpose." The band is comprised of six members, Corey Flick (vocals, rhythm guitar, and harmonica), Steve Martin (lead vocal and rhythm guitar), Blain Crawford (Bass,) John Young (lead guitar and vocals), Andy Rumschlag (Auxiliary Percussion,) and Justin Atkins (Drums).

Sometime between 2008 & 2010 TWR's sound clicked with the local scene. Fans began flooding bars, venues, festivals, and concert halls hungry for their unique sound. Based out of Indianapolis TWR has played some of the finest venues in Indiana including Emens Auditorium in Muncie, The Bluebird in Bloomington, and The Mousetrap in Indianapolis. They've shared the stage and opened for fine musicians such as Particle, Cornmeal, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, Marco Benevento, That One Guy, Great American Taxi, Macpodz, Willy Waldman (Sublime, Tupac, etc,) Zach Deputy, Family Groove Company, Papadosio, Covert Operations, Greensky Bluegrass, and countless other notable bands and musicians.

To classify their music is distinctively impossible. Their sound is ingenious and infused with a magical spells that combine a psychological free-falling emotional compass of ambient-fusion-folk and lyrical-jamrock. Audiences are transcended into an almost hypnotic state of visceral musical seduction and heart-pulsing emotional highs and lows. At any given moment you can find the influence of jambands, southern rock, ambient jazz-fusion, and folk. Their mix of raw talent and creativity is never ending, and each show is proof of that.Passion through cadence. Intensity through intonation and the rhythmically silent verbosity that speaks volumes to those that have spent an intimate evening with these enigmatic musicians will be thrilled by a sound, unclassified.

The Waldermere Revival is doing precisely what it set out to do. Resonating with audiences both young and old that are transfixed by their music. "We make music so that someone could listen and without even a word, those people could be lifted to a higher state of being," says Corey Flick.

Waldemere Revival has recently teamed up with Hidden Relic Productions. HRP is currently managing the band, and overseeing promotions. Booking is done by both Hidden Relic and band members.

Lyrics

Docks of The Mississippi

Written By: The Waldemere Revival

Down at the docks of the mississippi
where I learned to drink my wine
oh no i found jesus
a quater's not worth a dime

now i'm finding
i'm finding my way home
now i'm finding i'm finding my way home

Now i don't got any money
but that shit's alright with me
because i've got me a little honey
come on over little honey bee

now i'm finding
now i'm finding my way home
now i'm finding
i'm finding my way home

So i can find my way through a hourglass
and i'm finding my own way
yea it's my opinion
when i say now

Now i don't got any money
but that shit's alright with me
because i've got me a little honey
come on over little honey bee

now i'm finding
now i'm finding my way home
now i'm finding
i'm finding my way home

Lost In My Way

Written By: The Waldemere Revival

lost in My Way
lost in My Way

well i'm trying to find her out
i just step back like i always do
just so i can find the way to you
while the room's still spinning

here we go again
i'm all fucked up from the drinking
From the bottle i torn down
last night on the floor now there's blood on my hands

Lost In My Way
Lost In My Way

Here we go again
it's the same old shit again
tried to tell you about my friends
but now i'm on the way
while we're coming home again

Though it was
good but here's what it's like
i went blind
from the seasons in my mind
i'm four from the floor now i'm dying inside

who knows where i go
but then i might find my own way
but there's where i go but then i'm might find my own way back home

who knows where i go
but then i might find my own way
but there's where i go but then i'm might find my own way back home

So Damn Blessed

Written By: The Waldemere Revival

I don't mind if you write this song
Rolling wheels will come and take me home
It's funny how that feels the best
I don't mind if you're taking my bread
I don't mind if you're taking my bread
we're soooo blessed we're all lazy
it takes two dimes to get in the liquor store
if you buy me one bottle i'm sure i'll want more
it's funny how that tastes the best
well i don't mind if you're taking my bread
i don't mind if you're taking my bread
we're soooo blessed
we're all lazy
Just Come on Back and i'll show you the rest
Just come on back in that country dress
I don't mind cause it looks the best
i don't mind if you're taking my breath
i don't mind cause you're taking my breath
we're soooo blessed
we're all lazy
we're all lazy
we're all lazy
we're all lazy
let's all be lazy

Perimeter

Written By: The Waldemere Revival

Hold me back Why don't you hold me back
Hold me back Why don't you hold me back
Away From my home
Paint me black
Why Don't you paint me black
Away From My Home
I'm Finding Out
It's Getting Bigger
I'm Wearing thin, Thinner and Thinner
Wear Me out like a dirty Shirt
I'm Finding out it's gonna work
Come back why don't you come on back
Come back why don't you come on back
away from home
Pull the slack Why don't you pull the slack
Pull the slack Why don't you pull the slack
away from home
away from home
I'm Finding Out
It's Getting Bigger
I'm Wearing thin, Thinner and Thinner
Wear Me out like a dirty Shirt
I'm Finding out it's gonna work
Hold me back Why don't you hold me back
Hold me back Why don't you hold me back
Away From my home
Paint me black
Why Don't you paint me black
Away From My Home
I'm Finding Out
It's Getting Bigger
I'm Wearing thin, Thinner and Thinner
Wear Me out like a dirty Shirt
I'm Finding out it's gonna work
