Blue in the face

BandPopAcoustic

Our music comes from our life,hearts, and people say they feel it when we play! People have told us it gives them passion to go on and do what they have always been scared of doing . "Live life as if you only had one day to live. What would you do that you were always scared of"-Blue in the face

Biography

Blue in the face started in 2007, when Derek Morris left his other band that was touring and playing massively! But he found himself drifting into new thoughts and vision for music he wanted to play. Even though Derek knew how to sing or perform acoustic on his own. But his heart was beating to deeply practice, and practice, and write songs about past life stories. Then
Signed with ZEN WHISPER RECORDS (in 2007) Right off the start and played shows.
Met Amanda late 2007 and we have never looked back!
Our music is passionate and real. Rather it would be a song of "Never giving up on life" or " A day you didn't want to come out of the house." We are real people and are far from not relating with others! I think that is whats unique about Blue in the face. We have many influences, from City and Colour,Sarah Groves,Stars, Postal service, Irone and Wine, Unwritten law, Alkaline trio, Matt Skiba acoustic and much more!
