Biography

Songwriter-performer John Scheaffer was influenced at a young age by live polka and gospel music played during family reunions in the coal regions of Pennsylvania. His new-found love of music carried on as he listened to his father’s vast collection of Country, Blues, R&B and Classic Rock & Roll records.

Scheaffer spent several years in LA collaborating and playing with various bands before settling in NYC and signing on with Mother West. The Past Ain't Far, Ceramic's first, full length record, produced by Scheaffer and Charles Newman, offers its listeners a resonant set of songs that move fluidly from alt. pop rock to rustic dream ballads to blues and rock dirges.

Lyrics

Angels In The Desert

Written By: Scheaffer

Angels In The Desert
Words & Music by John M. Scheaffer

I don’t know what you’ve been told
‘Bout angels in the desert
Hovering around convoys
Shipping souls to paradise

Some of us don’t think twice

What do you think he’d say up there
Got a little wine and some virgins to spare

And I can’t believe the thought-dreams of the machine
It’s funny how we’d be better off with a queen

I don’t know what you’ve been told
‘Bout angels in the desert
Hovering around convoys
Shipping souls to paradise

Wake Up The Rain

WAKE UP THE RAIN

Words & Music by

Wake up the rain
Blind side the shame
They’d never call
You a doll
When they see
How you pout

Choose
Your poison carefully
Ruin the magi Epiphany
Send them all west
With all the rest
Of the sinners

You don’t have to be
Right in front of me
To care
One more time

Your mama
Calls you on the telephone
Trying to get you to move back home
You’d always call
Her a doll
Cause she’s always
Seen you crawl

You don’t have to be
Right in front of me
To care
One more time
