Blondestreak is like Liz Phair, No Doubt, and Fleetwood Mac stirred up into a juicy Summer smoothee! Sweet!!!

Biography

It's official. Blondestreak's ""Spreading My Wings"" is the official theme song of the 2005 WNBA ESPN TV campaign. Last year it was Liz Phair's ""Extraordinary"". We are proud to be in that kind of company! Check out the first spot all day starting in June on ESPN and ESPN2 or at:
http://espn.creativegroup.tv/WNBA3_17_05/

Update: It will also be used in promos on ABC this summer AND during the games for the whole season!

News Flash! - We are top 10 in five different categories on broadjam.com and number 11 in the top 50 on independentartistscompany.com/kiac/big50.aspx

"Some people have speculated that we hired Victoria because she's so sexy - but that's only the half of it - she's a highly accomplished musician!" - Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club and producers of Shirley Manson of Garbage.

“The singers have cool voices and good attitude. They are a very marketable band!”
- Kip Winger

Bryant - booker from Acme Underground - NYC rock club:
""You guys rock the house everytime you play here!""

Joe Kelly, college radio DJ for Fairfield University, CT:

"Blondestreak is a standout band which blends outstanding musicianship, stellar vocals and sexy onstage presence. Thanks to Blondestreak for adding such high quality music to my radio shows."

Blondestreak fits nicely on the shelf between Garbage and No Doubt. Lyricist and lead singer - Victoria Woods intimately reveals her real world experiences, one moment singing about God, then in the next moment about her homicidal wishes or her girl-girl attractions. Drummer/producer Ray Palagy sound designs the tracks with quirky, futuristic drum grooves, and a creamy mix of electric and acoustic guitars. Blondestreak delivers serious pop songs while performing alchemy on a heart and spirit level.

The previous CD "Saturn's Child" has charted in CMJ's top 30 and has independently worked its way onto commercial radio playlists. The single, "MaryAnne," combines lush harmonies with a simple yet irresistible guitar hook. The song captures the innocent yearning for an old friend, compounding it with an urban urgency that makes this tune one that college radio has jumped on.

Lyrics

That's All I Need

Written By: Victoria Clamp and Ray Palagy

Jane’s an actress in L.A., she needs someone to cast her
Pilot season ends today, she met with ten directors
A job for her is life or death, too bad but she believes that
If she does not become a star, there’s really nothing else left

Can’t stand in one place for too long
Feeling bad won’t make you strong
Let’s raise our face up to the sky

I don’t need no Prada bag, or a ride in a black Jag
I got everything right here
My guitar is on my back, and I’ve learned not to look back
That’s all I need

Billy’s girlfriend left today, he was her high school sweetheart
Daddy’s sending her away, so she can get a fresh start
He says at Yale she’ll find a man, to lavish her with nice things
Billy gave her all he had, now he’s left with nothing

I see a light in front of me
A smiling face that beckons me
Let’s raise our face up to the sky

I don’t need no Gucci shoes - Like my jeans? I got ‘em used.
I got everything right here
Don’t care what Social Class I’m in; I feel good in my own skin
That’s all I need

I don’t need Versace pants; don’t need the Sun in the south of France
I got everything right here
Don’t care what Social Class I’m in; I feel good in my own skin
That’s all I need

Ballerina

Written By: Victoria Clamp & Ray Palagy

Oh what a thrill
It would be
To see you crawl
And beg for me
I would crush you
With my fingertips
You would be burning
To kiss my lips
Then maybe you'll notice me
MAYBE I COULD'VE BEEN A BALLERINA
PUT MY ARMS ABOVE MY HEAD AND FLY
MAYBE I COULD'VE BEEN A BALLERINA
I WOULD SPIN AND I WOULD TWIRL
MAYBE I WOULD BE YOUR GIRL
You'll find that I am sweet
Without me you're incomplete
And everytime you think of me
I'll haunt you with the memory
Then maybe you'll notice me
MAYBE I COULD'VE BEEN A BALLERINA
PUT MY ARMS ABOVE MY HEAD AND FLY
MAYBE I COULD'VE BEEN A BALLERINA
I WOULD SPIN AND I WOULD TWIRL
MAYBE I WOULD BE YOUR GIRL
The one you dream about
MAYBE I WOULD BE YOUR GIRL
The one you can't live without
MAYBE I WOULD BE YOUR GIRL
You would be burning
To kiss my lips
Then maybe you'll notice me
MAYBE I COULD'VE BEEN A BALLERINA
PUT MY ARMS ABOVE THE WORLD AND FLY
MAYBE I COULD'VE BEEN A BALLERINA
I WOULD SPIN AND I WOULD TWIRL
MAYBE I WOULD BE YOUR GIRL
MAYBE I WOULD BE YOUR GIRL
MAYBE I WOULD BE YOUR GIRL

Spreading My Wings ©2005
by Victoria Clamp and Ray Palagy

Broke the lock on my bedroom door
My hands are black and blue
Need some time - some time to think
Of anything but you

Ooh - Look at me I'm spreading my wings
Whoever said you can't get no satisfaction
Didn't try too hard
Ooh - Look at me I'm spreading my wings
From way up here I'm only feeling free from everything I knew down there

Every step I try to take
Judged by someone else
How can I really live my life
Unless I do it myself

Ooh - Look at me I'm spreading my wings
Whoever said you can't get no satisfaction
Didn't try too hard
Ooh - Look at me I'm spreading my wings
From way up here I'm only feeling free from everything I knew down there

I'd like a limo to the airport
Champagne for my new friends
A phone to call you on
Just to say
I won't be coming home
I won't be coming home today
