Biography

I have been singing my entire life, and been involved in the local music scene for the passed 6 years now. I spent 4 years as the lead singer of reggae-ska band Tea For The Voyage, and just recently the passed year as a solo acoustic artist. Recording the Im Stoked EP last summer just before leaving for Australia to promote my music. Having great inspiration for relaxed camp fire music, I was paid to play guitar by the campfire everynight at a surfcamp for a minimum of 70 different tourists each night. Influences vary from Newton Faulkner and Donovon Frankenreiter, Shane Piasecki. The one thing you can expect from my music is variety, I love playing so many different kinds of music, the base is acoustic pop which you can sense in my originals, but the covers I play range from Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson to Rihanna and Kings of Leon. Anytime I play a set I am one hundred percent confident it will be entertaining and tasteful for all who watch.

Lyrics

The Life

Written By: Brett McDonald

We got the soundtrack rollin on a saturdaynight, The fires burnin and the beers on ice, we dont know the end, but thats alright, no more rules tonight
Im saying turn it up as the classic comes on screamin teenage wasteland at the top of our lungs, we dont care about right or wrong, we just keep singing along

and im saying hey, hey, hey this is the life I want to live, hey, hey, hey this is the life, it is, so dont worry about tommorow, cause everything will be alright, the only time is now, and this is the life

we got the hammocks on the beach as the waves roll in two beautiful blondes, and my bestfriend we got nothin to say we dont know where to begin, this should be a sin, she turns around and offers me the lotion it dont take long for me to get in motion her bodies so sweet curves like the ocean, i look to andrew ask him hows it goin

and he says hey hey hey this is the life i want to live, hey hey hey this is the life, it is, so dont worry about tommorow, cause everything will be alright, the only time is now, and this is the life

we got the soundtrack rollin the soundtrack rollin got the fire burnin fire burnin and the beers on ice, no more rules tonight
we got the soundtrack rollin the soundtrack rollin got the fire burnin fire burnin and the beers on ice, no more rules tonight

and im sayin hey hey hey this is the life i want to live, hey hey hey this is the life, it is, so dont worry about tommorow, cause everything will be alright, the only time is now, and this is the life
