BandPopSinger/Songwriter

'The best music you've never heard' is what I write, in collaboration with others as well as by myself. Regardless of the flavour, I still consider it all to be based in Rock music, blending styles into solid, satisfying, hook-laden songs that stick to the brain!

Biography

I am a self-taught guitarist / singer / songwriter, starting out at the age of nine with a chord book and lots of time to practise. I honed my skills in high-school bands and around campfires at the family cottage. In 1998, I recorded and made 500 copies of a CD of original acoustic songs, then set about getting them into the hands of everyone I possibly could. The reaction was overwhelming, I received personal letters, emails, even gifts from people I had never met, telling me how the music had affected them and how much they had enjoyed it. I sent a copy of it to Muses Muse, and it was featured one the Internet radio show (#8!). I still get compliments today about that CD (and still sell it, too!) I've been involved in a few projects since then, but it seems the stuff I write and perform independently has the widest appeal and the most longevity. So, since my goal is to get my music published and performed by other artists, I'll be using Sonicbids to get my tunes into the hands of people that can help me out with that....

Lyrics

Anymore Angels

Written By: Aaron Hughes & Andrew McLaughlin

Lightning struck
In the middle of the night
In the heart of the city of angels
The cold steel shattered
The sleeping neighborhood
Like thunder from above

A DRIVE BY
KILLED AN ANGEL
NOW SHE’S SINGING US TO SLEEP
____________________________
SOON THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE ANGELS
IN THE CITY
AND WE WILL ALL BE LOST AGAIN

SOON THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE ANGELS
IN THE CITY
AND WE WILL ALL BE LOST AGAIN
IN THE SENSELESS VIOLENCE

She got stuck
In the middle of a fight
Dueling gangs from the city of angels
The plague of power
Infested what was good
And did away with love

A DRIVE BY
KILLED AN ANGEL
NOW SHE’S SINGING US TO SLEEP
_____________________________
SOON THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE ANGELS
IN THE CITY
AND WE WILL ALL BE LOST AGAIN

SOON THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE ANGELS
IN THE CITY
AND WE WILL ALL BE LOST AGAIN
IN THE SENSELESS VIOLENCE

Hush little angel don’t cry
Hush little angel don’t cry

Hush little angel don’t cry
We will meet in the sky
We will meet in the sky

He lifted her up
In the middle of the night
And he cried for the death of an angel
In the darkest hour
He cursed the neighbourhood
For innocence lost to a gun

A DRIVE BY
KILLED AN ANGEL
NOW SHE’S SINGING US TO SLEEP
______________________________
SOON THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE ANGELS
OH THE TRAGEDY
AND WE WILL ALL BE LOST AGAIN

SOON THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE ANGELS
IN THE CITY
AND WE WILL ALL BE LOST AGAIN

SOON THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE ANGELS

SOON THERE WON’T BE ANY MORE ANGELS
IN THE CITY
AND WE WILL ALL BE LOST AGAIN

IN THE SOUND OF SILENCE
