Biography

In an attempt to separate themselves from the teeming mass of indistinguishable rock bands, Asheville, NC’s By Morning has developed a persona that not only allows them to remain “rock”, but also appeal to a wider variety of listeners. But By Morning is much more than rock. Thick, clear guitar runs and hook harmonies are backed up by a rhythm section that does more than just act as a backbone - it sends the music over the edge. What results is active and moving music that appeals to the high-energy heads and those that appreciate something they can sing along to.

By Morning has teethed on stages across the southeast and honed a craft for their energetic, crowd participating live show. Sharing the stage with a wide range of music genres: Sanctity (Roadrunner Records), Look What I Did (Combat), The Summer Obsession (Virgin), The Bangkok 5 (Universal Records), and many more local and regional bands, been featured on several radio stations, including on air performances at WXRY Unsigned (Columbia, SC) and 105.9 The Mountain (Asheville, NC). By Morning has performed at The 2006 Atlantis Music Festival in Atlanta, GA, and 2007 Bele Chere Festival in Asheville, NC.

In February, MxyerTones.com selected By Morning as Artist Pick of the Day for February 22nd. A total of 5,819 downloads of their single "Run" was downloaded. This made By Morning the second largest download in MyxerTone's history.

In April of 08, By Morning rose to #3 out of 1,607, on Ourstage.com in their Rock Channel. Then again in July with a placement of #7 out of 1,236, in Alternative Rock.

The future is bright for this rock quintet. With the online release of The Migration EP (2008), that followed their successful 2006 release Illustrations, By Morning plans on building stronger fanbases and bringing new listeners a fresh approch to the genre of Rock.

Lyrics

Madeline

Written By: By Morning

I’ve got to figure out this chemical reaction I can’t do
without. I’ve got to bend it, break it, and harness it with
my every shout. Where is this pot of gold; this never
ending story I was always told? A chance to open
myself up to the things you feel are old. I’ve got to figure
it out, figure it out, hold on and breathe. I’ve got to open
myself up so everyone can see . . . that I can’t break this
state of mind, that I’m made from this cloth that you’ve
designed, and you don’t care or seem to mind that I’m
waiting for you, my Madeline.
Maybe I need sleep, or maybe it’s a part of me. I’m
like a fish in a glass box who fights his days to swim the
sea. Into this ocean, this never ending poem he’ll be
scratching. On the back of every tank until someone out
there sees.

About You

Written By: By Morning

Nobody is waiting to listen to you. And nobody is
changing steam to pounce on, pounce on you. And
This is where the train stops and everyone is watching
you. This is where I get off and everyone waves to you,
because my stories are always . . .
About you.
My body is for sale, though you won’t purchase. So
take what you want, because I don’t think you feel
that I’m worth it. And this is where the train stops and
everyone is watching you. This is where I get off and
nobody waves to you, because they’ll all be missing me
while I’m missing everything about you. We’ve trampled
these oceans before and I think we can do it again on
our own. We fall and we fight for this right together. We
fall and we fight on our own.
About you.

Thank you.
The blindfold is on, hands off the wheel, we’re letting
go. The sounds we make, they sound so clear as we
collide. Take me down another step into your eyes and
watch as I jump right in. You took me down another step
into your life and you watched as I dove right in.
This is not what you’re looking for. I wake up now in
noise and sound, I believe that I’m alive. Take me down
another step into your eyes and watch as I jump right in.
You took me down another step into your life and you
watched as I dove right in.
Its remarkable that we’ve made it this far. And it’s a
challenge to be here at all. Take me down another step
into your eyes and watch as I jump right in. You took me
down another step into your life and you watched as I
dove right in. I dove in. Thank you.
