Biography

The Amoreys are steeped in the blues but are not a blues band per se. They travel musically wherever their hearts take them and are fearless about presenting their own music. They believe in the Bo Diddley instuctions and directive not to prejudge the audience but instead offer them a taste and see if they like it - they may well want to gobble it up. The Amoreys are a roadhouse style band with strong convictions and a few indictments warrants etc. - but to hear them is to LOVE them!
Blues is the touchstone to a beautiful musicaal journey that never becomes self indulgent but aims for and occasionally hits the heart directly. Influences from Muddy to Mighty Sparrow and on to Monk and Monkees - P.J. Harvey to P.J. Proby - L.C. Good Rockin' Robinson - to Frank and Deano - love the life we live and all the stops along the road!

Get Away

Written By: Andy Willis

I SEE YOU THERE IN THE GRASS
SNEAKIN’ UP ON ME
I HAVE HEARD YOU’RE PRETTY FAST
GUESS NOW WE’RE GONNA SEE

(R)BUT IF I GET AWAY THIS TIME
IF I GET AWAY THIS TIME
I DON’T BELIEVE I WANTA PLAY THIS GAME NO MORE

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
IT’S A DAILY TEST
YOU’RE ON SOMEBODY’S HIT LIST
FROM THE DAY YOU FIRST DRAW BREATHE
( R)

bridge:
PEACE ON EARTH TRANQUILTY
LET THE LAMB LAY DOWN WITH THE LION
FORGET THE UPWARD MOBILITY
NO MOVEABLE FEAST THIS TIME

THEY’RE CULLING OUT THE HERD
I HEARD SOMEBODY CALL MY NAME
I’M ALREADY ON THE MOVE
AND I WON’T BE BACK AGAIN
