BandRockJazz

Original songwriting and performance bring Arspoetica to a place unexplored by many rock bands today. Described by fans as "dynamic and didactic", this is the kind of band you can't stop watching because you want to hear what comes next.

Biography

Prog rock featuring fusion guitarists/brothers, Everett and Austin Romano backed by a rhythm section schooled in latin jazz featuring Zach Samuell on drums and David Whitbeck on bass. With a repertoire that blends rock & roll, jazz, latin and a hint of pop with soulful vocals, Arspoetica is a one of a kind guitar driven group that performs acoustic and electric sets.

Everett, Zach and David are all music performance majors at Texas State University with concentrations in jazz/classical guitar, percussion & upright bass. Austin is an upcoming senior at San Marcos High School with aspirations of attending Berklee College of Music studying jazz guitar. We write songs with a message in mind and aspire to connect with people through our experiences.
Austin also owns a web development company and built our website. Check out his work at http://www.arspoeticamusic.com & http://www.vaporgraphics.com

Lyrics

Don't Mess With My Girl

Written By: Everett Romano

Paranoid thoughts running through my head, all because of something that somebody said.
My mind is filled with endless possibilities of the future, of our future baby.
What if this doesn't go like we've planned and you end up in the arms of another man? Well I'm not crazy I'm just feeling bad cause I don't want to lose this special thing that we have

The connection that we've made will never be the same with any other girl. You help me to maintain, now I'll live forever changed with you in my world. Don't mess with my girl.

What the hells he thinking trying to get some time? When it's obvious he's only got one thing on his mind.
But I don't need to worry, because you've reassured me that at the end of the day, you'll find love in my eyes.

The connection that we've made will never be the same with any other girl. You help me to maintain, now I'll live forever changed with you in my world. Don't mess with my girl.

Goodbye, Good Luck, Godspeed

She's questionning everything that makes this movie roll, should she go with the flow? Trapped in the second row where nobody ever grows.
He could've been ten years ahead, instead he gave his time to so many friends, dead end. Where the fuck are they now? Lost in a one man crowd, they gravitate towards the ground.

Save face, the patterns clear to see that the lowest possible energy level is where you like to be. Stagnate beyond anyone's expectations.
Goodbye, Good Luck, Godspeed

With one foot on the starting line a lack of concentration makes you fall behind, rewind, there's still plenty of time, cut off ties and find clarity for your mind.

Save face, the patterns clear to see that the lowest possible energy level is where you like to be. Stagnate beyond anyone's expectations.
Goodbye, Good Luck, Godspeed

Why Can't We See?

Written By: Arspoetica

Anxious, distressed, they're helpless so tell me what are you worried about? To exist in a moment is what's real so why can't any of us figure out that we have it so much better? Yeah, we have it so much better but we don't know any better than what we can see.

Our eyes watch lives terrorized, turn off your television screens.
We know nothing of what's real, you've gotta lose everything to see that you had it so much better. Yeah we have it so much better but we don't know any better than what we can see.

So why can't we see that we're the lucky ones? We could be fighting just to stay alive, still we find a way to whine. Still we find a way to make up reasons why we're unhappy while God's upstairs pointing and laughing at what a mess we've made inside of our heads. I'm only telling you this because you're my friend and I'm tired of all this negativity that you're sending towards me.

Our set is roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes.

We have an extremely dynamic set. We usually start off with our more listener friendly songs to warm the crowd up then bring the mood back down with a few clean (electric/drums with brushes) songs then finish the set off full steam with our most powerful songs. The dynamics definitely pull the audience in and keep their attention th
