Biography

Band on the Moon (formerly called The Direction) is a blues-rock outfit with a sound you won't find anywhere else but the ears they continue to please. Ever since first meeting at music school, this locally acclaimed band has kicked down the poorly padded door and is ready to show you the how blues is done right. Vocalist, Felicia Anderton, sings with a passion rarely seen this side of Tallahassee. Pair that passion with the mesmerizing guitar work of Elan Bartholomew and Steve Hutchinson, the pounding drum rhythms from Addison Aldous', and the buttery goodness of Amber Waldron's bass technique, and these soulful artists set a new bar for versatility. The band's latest EP "Deal with the Devil" has already made waves since it was released in August of 2012, and their forthcoming new full-length album (set to be released in Summer of 2013) is on track to be a huge success in the band's career.

Lyrics

Digging

Written By: Elan Bartholomew

The words
That came stumbling
From behind your lips

The four perfect letters
You drew on your wrist

The lies and deception
That I called the truth

The real
Understanding
That I found in you

I climbed up
That mountain
Just to leave you behind

That horrible memory
That I kept inside

So I bite my cracked lips
And I tell you goodbye

But as you shed your tears
I can’t force out mine

Cause I’ve
Been digging
This ditch in my mind

And somehow
It gets deeper
All the time

Patchwork Me

Written By: Elan Bartholomew

Sometimes it all just makes me laugh
Looking at the ground and then looking back
How did it get to be so bad?
These soles hold a bruised and weary past

Staring into a dirty mirror
These eyes are filled with more than fear
I’ll take all of it in, but I’ll shed no tears
There’s nothing left for me here

Is this the end or is this just another bend
In the beaten path I follow

I’m begging you please, just tell me my friend
Is this a dream or is this just hollow, patchwork me

Somehow I’ll just keep on walking
Do my best to shrug off these things

Paint me a smile, let’s do some laughing
I’ll look at the sky and sing

Is this the end or is this just another bend
In the beaten path I follow

I’m begging you please, just tell me my friend
Is this a dream or is this just hollow, patchwork me

Just tell me to stay
Just tell me to stay...
To stay on this pathway
