Biography

Aoeria (A-or-ee-uh) is an independent rock band from the Long Island/New York City area that creates songs over a wide range of sounds a styles, from acoustic strums to groovy riffs. Our newest member is Erik Diaz on bass, or thunderfingers as we like to call him, Toby Bruzik drums and rocks (Toby is a rock artist is the literal sense of the word), and Frank Giliberti sings, plays guitar, writes songs, and is the honorary driver/roadie. A new album is in the works while Aoeria's 2nd album, Praise to All You Hear is now making waves. The first album Waterwheel has gathered fans worldwide on internet radio, video sites, and social networking with original sounds and bandmade videos with Frank's photography. Each member has been playing in local groups for more than 13 years and have joined up to put their collective experience together. Although it is difficult to pinpoint a specific sound of Aoeria, we can tell you the the sound is a unique style with subtle and intense guitar sounds, introspective and observational lyrics with intricate and simple melodies, all meshed with rhythmic dances and meditations. The band is completely independent: from the music, recording, and pictures, to pressing and designing CDs and DVDs and making websites and videos. Straight from the band to you. Thanks for tuning in!

Lyrics

Mirror Dream

Written By: Frank Giliberti (Aoeria)

Riding on the wings of a dream
Caught in the spider's web we weave

Free yourself from the tangle of unearthly things

Drowning in your disbelief
In the power of a dream
To rescue everything
And return the love earth's shown for us

Take a drop of love and spread it to every color
The mirror reflects ourselves on each other

If you want to change anything then you've got to change from within

Dispel your disbelief
In the power of a dream
To give voice to those who can't speak
And shed some light on all they've seen

We must be the answer to her prayers

Cherish the gift of the wind to give lift to our wings

Fueled by our belief
In the power of a dream
To bring light to everything
And return the love earth has shown for us

Laying down to rest for the quest that's ahead
to imagine the change love can bring

Wonder

Written By: Frank Giliberti/Aoeria

Embark on a journey to witness the wonders
Spread across the globe waiting for you to unfold

If you run away you'll never leave your fear behind
It will follow you everywhere you go
If you want to free your soul then first you've got to let go

Without any expectations of what you might see
You'd be surprised if you bumped into me

If you want to reach the sky then leave your fear behind
And ride out the tide to where the waves are high
You'll fly without the weight of all you desire

Shimmer in the light shining over you
The light will guide back from the unknown

If you only knew love will carry you
Across the blinding sea to cast a dream
Over the walls that keep us apart
We all belong to the heart

You don't need anything to help you dream
Love is all you need to set you free

Harpoon

Written By: Frank Giliberti/Aoeria

I dreamt of a love that wasn't real
the thought crept into my heart like a spear
I clenched the stalk and tore it out, drain the poison before it roots down

I'm not ashamed of my ways, I'm holding out on you
To turn my way,I always secure my will

I woke woke from a dream raging in my tiny head
Somewhere through a distant window I'll beam through to you
Wake your sleepy eyes to see reality

Screaming in the wind, What a fool was a I to ever care
To set my eyes on you

Here we are, it's never as far
As it seemed to be, we'll float in the sea

I'm not ashamed of my ways, I'm holding out on you
To turn my way, I always secure my will

Apocrypha

Written By: Frank Giliberti/Aoeria

the wilting lies behind the lines
are echoes of lost thoughts in time
that came crashing down on a world
drowned in it's hate
we've got to take the reigns and throw them all away

is this a premonition of the end in sight
I don't want to find out what's coming down

from the sky crashing into earth,
this fire burns in our eyes
we lost our way somewhere within
the forest of our lies

take a step through the hidden door,
it waves to you with your reflection
the pain it preys throughout all of time
there is no shining moment,
the past only repeats itself

you might say there's no escape,
but if you look beyond you'll see love's not gone
we can find a way

Lucidity

Written By: Frank Giliberti/Aoeria

The night unwinds like vines in the sky
That whisper a secret that I can't find in my mind
The truth lies behind our eyes,
Implanted before words unformed
Spell out demise in our sight

Hide from shadows, stay out of the night
You will only find yourself in the light

How will you react when you discover
That what you believe is only what you want to see

Hide from shadows, stay out of the night
You will only find yourself in the light

Remember the light, refract in the eye
Beyond the canopy, wrapped in a dream

Hide from shadows, stay out of the night
You will only find yourself in the light

Your reality, never as it seems
Test your lucidity, dreams are destiny
