Blueberry High Heels

BandRockPop

A NYC band with a glam attitude, Blueberry High Heels has dug up post-punk NYC rock & roll and brought it back to life with their unique mix of energetic vocals, expressive melodies and infectious, hard driving groove.

Biography

Not since Violet Beauregard chewed Wonka's Three Course Meal gum, have blueberries made this big a splash. "Bob Dylan meets Joan Jett backed by Sonic Youth"..."Punky cool"..."Rebel with some claws"...all describe the dynamic rock & roll band Blueberry High Heels.

They are fronted by downtown rocker glam chick Didi Delicious who brings her incendiary, effervescent and often frenzied blues/rock vocal style to a straight up NYC rock and roll band.

Greg provides the no-nonsense drumming with a nod towards both classic rock and pre-new wave NYC punk styles. Kenny keeps the rhythm section grounded with inspiring bass playing. Dylan plays lead with a natural, fluid, creative and expressive style.

The result is music that is a uniquely blues-based sound wrapped in a straight ahead rock groove filled with soaring, sometimes blistering, guitar and seasoned with vocal hooks that leave you wanting to press play again and again.

Together Blueberry High Heels sing songs inspired by their own proto-glamorous lives in the hard-knock gritty city. Songs about life, love, loss, beauty, death and rising above it all.

Lyrics

Dice

Written By: Blueberry High Heels

You make your mistakes
And now in times we’re living
Can’t you read my lips?
Some have lost and found
And some still wonder
If life is just a myth.

Because I buy cigarettes
At the corner store
Open always, 24 hours-a-day.
You see the light in the sky is so much brighter
It’s time to make your way.

Cause I’m taking a roll of the dice.

Traveling Zoo

Written By: Blueberry High Heels

Cruising down the subway in an empty car
Early in the morning on the way to the bar
Gonna visit a man who calls himself The Traveling Zoo.

So I emptied my purse just to check out my pills
And I drank some wine to get some kind of thrill
And along came the voice of a man who called himself St Jude.

Well he spit in my eye and cursed in my mouth
And he whispered, “Hey son, what’s that all about?”
And we checked out the dead old man in the alleyway.

Do – Do – Do – Do – Do

I took a bullet from the outside looking in
I saw you running from your madness creeping in .
You’re a genius from the inside looking out
Crazy violin player break your bow out loud.

Looked both ways for the lost and found
And I found myself just walking around
Toking on some hail mary beads from the other day.

Now I’ve told you my shit story and I’ll wrap it all up
Cause I drank all the wine from the father’s cup
And I'm back on the subway train in an empty car.

I found myself feeling down and blue
I still haven’t found Mr. Traveling Zoo
So I popped in a few more pills to see my shooting star.

Do – Do – Do – Do – Do

I took a bullet from the outside looking in
I saw you running from your madness creeping in .
You’re a genius from the inside looking out
Crazy violin player break your bow out loud.

Do – Do – Do – Do – Do
Do – Do – Do – Do – Do
