BandFolkIndie

We're a brother-sister duo from Memphis, TN, and have recently found our way to Nashville. We are both singer songwriters, which allows us to integrate our individual experiences of life and love in a way that resonates with any listener. Each song tells a story that finds its roots with the common men and women, and is conveyed through our honest performance.

Biography

Music hinges on dynamics. Sonically, visually, emotionally, music rests on the cohesion of all aspects of the creative process. Enter Aliza Carter Band, a brother-sister duo from Nashville, by way of Memphis, who have developed an inherently charming dynamic over the span of 20 some odd years. Aliza and Carter weave independent personal accounts of love and life in one accord to create winsome tales with unspoken familiarity.

Lyrics

Midnight

Written By: Alicia Threlkeld, Zachary Threlkeld

There's a light that breaks above the trees
It tiptoes into daybreak
it warms the floors that creak
the floors are creaking

and when light turns those rusted, rosebud schemes
that's when we will hear
a truth that's never falling
that's never falling

And when the day is over
and the moon's tumbling down
what rests behind your shoulder
was a hidden sound

There's a song that hides with midnight trees
it's warming longer nights
it's moving dark green leaves

Now when we've grown older
our light a softer gleam
we will hear that summer song
on every night's mid-dream
on every midnight dream
what will midnight sing

Another Sun

Written By: alicia threlkeld, zachary threlkeld

I watch the white lines pass by on the street
but I'm in no hurry 'cause I know
you're not home to meet me
I wish you'd save your games for when it's fun

'cause here comes another sun
and you're still gone

How come the clock moves so slowly
after ten
it must know that I'm lying
I'm lying here waiting
and when that cold rush of silence really sinks in
here comes that sun again
and you're still gone
but here comes another sun

so take your time out there
bloodying your fists
but keep in mind
it's my heart you're gamblin' with

oh and if you and I are on opposite sides
then baby you've won
'cause here comes another sun
and another one

here comes another sun
and another, and another, and another one
and you're still gone

here comes another sun

Clearer

Written By: zachary threlkeld,alicia threlkeld

Come and quickly come
as the evening grows
we're becoming
what we've always hoped we could
catch the setting sun
and cross that autumn's green

see the gold burn to brown
see the gold burn to brown
and as the gold burns to brown

it's getting clearer
all around
all around us, all around

now you hold out
both your hands and they are empty
but we held it all
and we saw it all

and it's getting clearer
all around
all around us, all around

all around us

Foxtrails

Written By: zachary threlkeld, alicia threlkeld

Drive me through plains, across the hills,
as you've done once before
When the rain called, we pulled off the road
for that river where we washed our clothes

Where we washed our clothes
where we washed our clothes

Lead me straight through the pine-filled woods
your feet could use the wearing
come let's run,
we can run along these old foxtrails
as we sing our song

old foxtrails as we sing our song
old foxtrails as we sing our song

oh let the rain steal our words and our hindrance
and oh let the rain lead us straight through the morning
and oh let the rain steal our fears and our troubles
and oh let the rain fall the day we both have gone

we both have gone

Soon

Written By: zachary threlkeld, alicia threlkeld

I turned away easy love
twisted my fingers for the one
they call the one

then I tidied up those messy parts
spaces I kept in the dark
in case I found someone who liked the shape of my heart

and I know that god's forgiven me
for sleeping on my wounds
and if I hold life honestly
that love will find me soon

one day when my love looks at me
it will see me graciously
not because it's blind, it's the only thing that can see
and every night I'll sing him songs
he will always sing along
we'll both get knots in our lungs
'cause of how much it means

and until then I'll trust my eyes
fairing only narrow lines
not worrying what I will find
'cause he'll find me

and I know that god's forgiven me
for sleeping on my wounds
and if I hold life honestly
that love will find me soon
