45HiGH

BandRockPop

45 HiGH is inspired by the music from The Beatles, The Police and STP. Front-man Pete Giambalvo's powerful voice, reminiscent of young Colin Hay (Men at Work), soars over a tapestry of catchy rock guitar riffs and heavy grooves; creating big sing-along choruses that leave you feeling elevated.

Biography

It has been said that if you can make it New York City, you can make it anywhere. 45 HiGH is proving this true as they not only survive the music scene of NYC, but thrive within it.

With a consistently growing fan base, 45 HiGH journeys each listener on a Pop-Rock musical high that embodies all the goodness of a Catholic schoolgirl with the edginess of one who wears her skirt too short.

Fueled by brilliant and original lyrics and rhythms, 45 HiGH draws inspiration from and is influenced by classics such as The Police, Stone Temple Pilots, U2 and Genesis.

From playing in a variety of NYC hotspots (Snitch, The Knitting Factory, Arlene’s Grocery) to being named a featured artist on both radio (local Colorado station) and internet (myspace series), it is clear that these four musicians (Pete-Vocals, Andreas-Lead Guitar, Rik-Rhythm Guitar, and Donovan-Drums) will go on producing a positive energy that even their great city cannot contain.

They successfully released their second EP “My Addiction” and show no signs of slowing or stopping there; 45 HiGH will continue to create feel-good melodies that epitomize Rock n' Roll, and inspire one to drive with the top down and the volume up.

Lyrics

Shed My Skin

Written By: Pete Giambalvo


Something's moving on the ceiling Is that a spider that I'm seeing
Or is it just a dream
Either way the time is fleeting and I'm afraid it's losing meaning
If it's never gonna change

Everyday is groundhog day, it's all the same
I've got no reason why, no alibi, noone to blame

I'M MORE THAN READY TO SHED MY SKIN
I'M MORE THAN READY TO LEAVE THIS SO-CALLED LIFE I'VE BEEN IN
YOU CAN'T FEEL WHAT YOU DON'T TOUCH
MAYBE I DON'T LIVE ENOUGH
I'M MORE THAN READY TO SHED MY SKIN

Am I a slave to my addictions Another walking contadiction
Claiming to be free
For all I know it's once around I've gotta break brand new ground
For my sanity

Everyday is groundhog day, it's all the same
I've got no reason why, no alibi, noone to blame

I'M MORE THAN READY TO SHED MY SKIN
I'M MORE THAN READY TO LEAVE THIS SO-CALLED LIFE I'VE BEEN IN
YOU CAN'T FEEL WHAT YOU DON'T TOUCH
MAYBE I DON'T LIVE ENOUGH
I'M MORE THAN READY TO SHED MY SKIN

I'M MORE THAN READY
OH I'M MORE THAN READY TO LEAVE THIS SO-CALLED LIFE I'VE BEEN IN
YOU CAN'T FEEL WHAT YOU DON'T TOUCH
MAYBE I DON'T LIVE ENOUGH
I'M MORE THAN READY
SEE I'M MORE THAN READY
I'M MORE THAN READY TO SHED MY SKIN
GOTTA SHED MY SKIN
GOTTA SHED MY SKIN

My Addiction

Written By: Pete Giambalvo

You’re spread out on the table
Lights are red but I’m not able
To resist you, Can’t resist you
All shook up and fascinated
Just to look what you created
A fool for you, I drool for you

I can put you off,
Until later on
Got to have you now,
Before you are gone
I don’t even care
If I’m right or wrong
Well no, I can’t lie your still my addiction

MY ADDICTION
MY ADDICTION
MY ADDICTION

This feeling all consuming
I’m kneeling, it’s amusing
I bet to you, I’m wet for you
All shook up and fascinated
Just to look what we created
I’m yours and your mine, just like last time

I can put you off,
Until later on
Got to have you now,
Before you are gone
I don’t even care
If I’m right or wrong
Well no, I can’t lie your still my addiction

MY ADDICTION
MY ADDICTION
MY ADDICTION

I need a fix (eat, sleep, dream, breathe)
I need a fix
I need a fix
Give me a fix
I need a fix
Give me a fix
I need a fix
Give me a fix

I can put you off,
Until later on
Got to have you now,
Before you are gone
I don’t even care
If I’m right or wrong
Well no, I can’t lie your still my addiction

MY ADDICTION
MY ADDICTION
MY ADDICTION

I can put you off,
Until later on
Got to have you now,
Before you are gone
I don’t even care
If I’m right or wrong
Well no, I can’t lie your still my addiction

MY ADDICTION
MY ADDICTION
MY ADDICTION

Who's To Say

Written By: Pete Giambalvo

It's so good to see you after all this time
And that we two can still get along just fine
I'd convinced myself that we were through Now I see you
Girl you're face just erased all I knew

WHO'S TO SAY THAT WE CAN'T START ALL OVER
WHO'S TO SAY WE CAN'T BE MORE THAN FRIENDS
FROM WHERE I STAND THE PAST IS NOT THE FUTURE
IT'S JUST YOU AND ME WHO'S TO SAY WHO'S TO SAY

Don't it feel so good to laugh and look into my eyes
Don't it feel the way it did before we said goodbye
I'd almost forgot this feeling could exist and in our midst
There's a kiss there's a kiss there's a kiss

WHO'S TO SAY THAT WE CAN'T START ALL OVER
WHO'S TO SAY WE CAN'T BE MORE THAN FRIENDS
FROM WHERE I STAND THE PAST IS NOT THE FUTURE
IT'S JUST YOU AND ME WHO'S TO SAY WHO'S TO SAY

Life is not a dress rehearsal There's still time for a reversal
Turn this whole thing around We gotta turn this whole thing around
We're gonna turn this whole thing turn this whole thing around

It's so good to feel you after all this time
We know that we can still get along just fine
So now's the time to write a brand new history cause what will be
Is up to you and me

WHO'S TO SAY THAT WE CAN'T START ALL OVER
WHO'S TO SAY WE CAN'T BE MORE THAN FRIENDS
FROM WHERE I STAND THE PAST IS NOT THE FUTURE
IT'S JUST YOU AND ME WHO'S TO SAY WHO'S TO SAY
YEAH IT'S JUST YOU AND ME
WHO'S TO SAY WHO'S TO SAY
