Biography

Best known for their live shows, Bluestone`s sound forms unique rock that blends vocal harmonies, duelling solos, male and female lead vocals, and supported by a killer rhythm section. Bluestone is based in Ottawa and regularly tours Canada performing at clubs and festivals. The band is fronted by a brother sister combo that drives a musical synergy that is thicker than blood.

Ben Russell's powerful, raw vocals and driving guitar creates a perfect counterpoint to Angie's soul infused voice and her melodic, fiery solos. The two blended their sound into one dynamic, and unified rock display unique to Bluestone alone.

The bass sound of J-P Amyotte provides a deep, rich groove that punctuates the band's hooks and addictive sound. Sandy Hunter's stage energy and skill is constantly on display as he accentuates the band with his own brand of beats.

The band's combined two music degrees assist in their creation of intricate songwriting and infectious, addictive melodies to emphasize their poetic verses.

Lyrics

Start Again

Written By: Bluestone

I'm just waiting for this day to end
So i can go home and start again, start again, start again.

Don't you know that i'm late again
For my dead end job and my dead end friends, dead end friends, dead end friends

Woke up in a strangers bed
Same old hangover in my head, in my head, in my head

Start over again!!!
Starting over, Starting over, Starting over

My Love

Written By: Bluestone

I ain't got no place to go
so I'll make this park my home
and I know that I'm not alone.
Tomorrow I'll go.

Pre-Chorus:
So many miles apart. You'll see
that right here in my heart you'll be.
One step forward, two steps back
is all it takes to bring me back to you

Chorus:
Ratatata-ta-ta
My love
Ratatata-ta-ta
My love
Ratatata-ta-ta
My love
My love, my love

I see you all around me each day.
It's the little things that remind me of your embrace.
Although you're not here with me. You know I'm on my way
straight back to you.

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Sinking

Written By: Bluestone

I'm Sinking, thought that I was lost before...
I'm Sinking, thought that I was lost before...

When are you going to see what it means to be a man
And realize the eyes are all on you?
And you’ll hide ‘cause you’re gonna try to deflect the ‘why’ of what it is that you do
And you think you’re doing all that you can...

I'm Sinking, thought that I was lost before...
I'm Sinking, thought that I was lost before...

I did not make it in but I just couldn’t tell you so
Already gone but now I think it’s time for me to go
It was a little lie but now it’s got me in its grasp
I’m going overboard, I think I’m gonna lose it!
I'm Sinking, thought that I was lost before...
I'm Sinking, thought that I was lost before...

I don’t wanna lie, I don’t wanna lie, I don’t wanna lie, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna  go!
I'm Sinking, thought that I was lost before...
I'm Sinking, thought that I was lost before...
