Biography

From the mainstream sea of same-old bands emerges 2nd HALF, a positively charged melodic pop rock two-piece out of Cleveland, Ohio. After growing up playing in bands with current members of ROADRUNNER RECORDS recording artist 'CHIMAIRA', 2nd HALF began in 1997 to head down a different musical road than their former band mates. Now, having over seven years experience with each other and having gone through several lineup iterations, 2nd HALF has found dedication in a two-piece that brings a new sound to the music scene of today.

2nd HALF has built a solid foundation with strong presence in Cleveland's local music scene. Their live stage show has been quoted as Cleveland's 'best local show' and continually receives 'amazing' reviews from the crowd. During live performances, 2nd HALF connects with their audience in a new dimension of visual sound. They reveal the true meaning of their music on stage through well-choreographed video projections that provide visual interpretations of their songs as they are played live. This unique aspect of 2nd HALF's live show continues to draw 400+ to Peabody's in Cleveland and has opened for national acts such as 311, The Hexum Brothers, Local H, and Dirty Americans.

The bands full-length release entitled "NOW IT'S REAL" was produced by nationally renowned IMMORTAL recording artist BEN SCHIGEL (Drowning Pool, Chimaira). Their signature song, "Look The Other Way", was featured on a compilation CD sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer and A&R Worldwide's Unearthed CD Volume3, and is currently receiving spins on Cleveland's largest rock station WMMS 100.7 FM, KKBS 92.7 FM. KTCL 93.3 FM, WBWC 88.3 FM, WSTB 88.9 FM, WZIP 88.1 FM as well as Internet Radio Stations around the world. As with "Look The Other Way", 2nd HALF's catchy lyrical hooks makes every song on the CD a potential radio hit.

Lyrics

Living Yesterday

Written By: 2nd HALF

Living Yesterday by 2nd HALF

Riding along on yesterday's habit
I do it alone 'cause you, you wouldn't have it
And if I could feel how I feel while I was at it
I'd do it again and again and again for all time

To get into the state of mind
You need to read between the lines
You've got to lose yourself to find
In your mind, make today go down

Re-relieve, you've got to believe you can seize the day
You'd best believe, that if you relieve you'll be living yesterday

Sometimes life doesn't give you what you needed
A moment of calm in a world that's overheated
So that's when it's time, when you find you're being cheated
To take a little bit of time back as your own, again

Riding alone and the road is getting wetter
How long will it take for me to feel better
How long will I care as I'm staring at your letter
I'll see your again if I can make today go down

Re-relieve, you've got to believe you can seize the day
You'd best believe, that if you relieve you'll be living yesterday

I want it to be how I see in my mind now
I want it to feel just as real as the time now
I want it to be but it never will be so I live inside me

Yesterday, yesterday don't go away

To get into the state of mind
You need to read between the lines
You've got to lose yourself to find
Hit rewind, in your mind and make today go down

Re-relieve, you've got to believe you can seize the day
You'd best believe, that if you relieve you'll be living yesterday

Re-relieve, you've got to believe you can seize the day
You'd best believe, that if you relieve you'll be living yesterday

No One

Written By: 2nd HALF

No One by 2nd HALF

How unusual you've overlooked poor me
What's the use the abuse is repeatedly
It's the usual cruise that you make by me
As if to choose to reduce my integrity

You ain't no better than me

We've all hated, frustrated in every way
How will we learn to return when we turn to run away

We are the people
You don't know
A world full of people
Don't see us at all
One in a million and one
Amounts to no one

How unusual you're looking straight at me
How confusing you're choosing independently
One by two the illusions are taking me
As if I knew it was you that that was causing them to be

We are the people
You don't know
A world full of people
Don't see us at all
One in a million and one
Amounts to no one

I've seen the way you're playing
I've heard the things you're saying
I've seen the way you rule the day by pushing me out of your way

It's the usual cruise that you make by me
As if to choose to reduce my integrity
One by two the illusions are taking me
As if I knew it was you

We are the people
You don't know
A world full of people
Don't see us at all
One in a million and one
Amounts to no one

Voice of Reason

Written By: 2nd HALF

Voice of Reason By 2nd HALF

I get up about a quarter to eight
Running perpetually late
But at least I'm getting there

Eyes are open but I'm barely awake
I've taken all I can take
But at least I'm sitting there, anywhere

Every day it's only more of the same
I think my future is calling my name, in vain

Can you hear the voice of reason
Do you see the light of day
Or do you look away

Same story every day of the week
My work is never complete
And I can't get anywhere

Maybe worry is the way of the weak
But if it keeps you your seat
You should be sitting there

Only me, can I see the decay
Of the American popular way, disarray

Can you hear the voice of reason
Do you see the light of day
Or do you look away

The state of worry makes the sound of defeat
We're on the edge of our seat
But going nowhere, anywhere
The state of our estate will never mend

So when it's over and it's time to move on
When tunnel vision is gone
Where will we all be

The only thing is when it's over and done
Will there even be anything left for you or me

Can you hear the voice of reason
Do you see the light of day
Or do you look away
