Biography

3 Mile Walk has arrived. With their new Debut Album recorded live at Mad Dog Studios in Burbank, CA. 3 Mile Walk grabbed the attention of Grammy Award Winning Producer David Bianco (Tom Petty, The Black Crowes, Rage Against the Machine, Switchfoot) Mr Bianco produced, mixed, and engineered the 3 Mile Walk album. Mr. Bianco even performed some piano on the track (With You) and lended his backing vocals on the track“The Only One”.

3 Mile Walk has been sharing the stage with bands such as the Gin Blossoms, The Flock of Seagulls and The English Beat. These four California natives are gaining a sizable amount of attention by stirring the undercurrent of popular modern alternative rock with their creation of catchy hard-hitting rock to more intimate yet dynamic melodies.

3 Mile Walk is Johnathon Wilson (vocals, rhythm guitar), Jay Baldemor (bass guitar and background vocals), James Van Orden (lead guitars) and Paul Regnier (drums, percussion). Since their formation in October 2003, 3 Mile Walk has been hard at work on creating a united vision of musical style that is fresh, unique and engaging. Aptly described as “Atmospheric Rock,” 3 Mile Walk moves you with melodic musical emotion.

Beneath the strong vocals and harmonies which rise confidently above clever and exciting guitars, is the solid bass/drums rhythm backbone. From the smooth riffs and passionate vocals of “On My Way” to the ethereal emotion of “With You” it is hard to believe 3 Mile Walk has been together a little over two years!

The formation of the band began in 2002 with Orange County, CA natives John Wilson, Paul Regnier and Jay Baldemor forming the nucleus of the band now known as 3 Mile Walk. The first two years of the band’s existence was spent honing a sharp rhythm section and constructing strong lyrics. The band played a number of shows, but sought one additional element. In October 2003, James Van Orden joined the band as lead guitarist.

3 Mile Walk can be experienced live performing in venues such as the Viper Room in LA or The Coachhouse in Orange County and Universities up and down the coast, from San Diego to Newport Beach, Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo. With a full tour schedule coming soon and a hot their new CD in the works, it looks like the journey for 3 Mile Walk is going to be a long one….

Lyrics

The Last Time

Written By: 3 Mile Walk

I remember so vividly that night when you looked at me
Eyes full of hate, your words penetrate
And I asked you one last thing
Why do you make me feel like I am not deserving
Of your thoughts, of your love, and of your trust?

This is the last time that I will love you
I'm not going to give in again
I can't forget you, but I forgive you
What's done is done and I must move on

As I walked away, I thought to myself
Is this the way it's supposed to be?
Always giving, never getting
Feeling like an enemy
This war is not worth it, I know that I can't win
Youre too good at making me feel like this is the last time
that I will love you
I'm not going to give in again
I can't forget you, but I forgive you
What's done is done and I must move on

With You

Written By: 3 Mile Walk

I just wanna be with you
Cause youll never leave, never leave me alone
When I sink beneath the stone
When I struggle just to breathe
I realize you are there with me

I just wanna be with you (forever)
Cause youll never leave, youll never let me down
Youre everything

In the air and in the sky
From the cross to deep inside
I realize, you are the truth and life

Youll never leave, never fade
And your love sustains
Never lie, never change
And your love remains the same
Youll never leave, youll never let me down
Youre everything

The Only One

Written By: 3 Mile Walk

Am I the only one torn between the right and wrong?
Am I the only one choosing the wrong more than the right?
It's a strange condition that I'm in.

But I know

My life goes around and upside down
I wanna go back to the light that opened up my eyes
Cause you had me in mind before I arrived

Am I the only one who's ever lied more than once?
Am I the only one who's walked away from perfect love?
Cause He drives out fear, His side was pierced

And whoever listens
This is the thorn in my side
And who's ever been there before
Can you help me grow?

Cause you had me in mind before I arrived
Youve always been right by my side
Youre waiting patiently for me to decide
