BandRockPop

With influences of folk, grunge & Brit-rock, we create a high energy sound/performance, with hints of mellowness. We absolutely love performing live, and always stay true to our philosophy of enjoying the moment to the max! Having just released our debut EP we are looking forward to the live stage.

Biography

Formed in June 2009, Cloverjoy is a rock/pop band from Windsor ON, Canada. What started out as a quest to find a mere backing band for my acoustic/piano material, quickly evolved into something entirely different. After adding my long time friend and former band mate John Coulter (bass), and later meeting Eric Oman (drums), the project took on a whole new sound. Energized by the pulse of the bass and drums, I was inspired to write new lively and vibrant electric based songs. Mixing my admiration and influences of Neil Young, Nirvana, Travis and Elvis Presley, with John’s Brit-rock bass work and Eric’s love for hard rock and metal turned out to be an unlikely success. So with the new sound came a new name, Cloverjoy. We would spend the next ten months writing and crafting new songs, rehearsing and fine-tuning in preparation for the recording of our debut EP “Break the Panic”.

Having just released Break the Panic (Nov. 2010) and finding the perfect fourth member Chris Elkjar (guitar), we are now very excited to hit the stage.

I can feel the momentum that has sparked among us; we click as a unit and absolutely love creating together. But more so, we enjoy the performing side of it all, as we follow the driving beat of the drum and generate a high energy show. We always look forward to meeting new faces at our performances, where we do our best to create memorable and enjoyable moments for them.

White Lights Are Calling

Written By: Adam Gilchrist

There’s a light, up ahead, and it’s callin’ out my name
Do I go? Do I go? Do I go?
I hear cries from the angels, as they’re singin’ me a song
Is it time? Is it time to say goodbye?

And just wait to take my life
And just wait till night
When the whole wide world, has fallen sound asleep
Then you can take me, you can take me in my dreams

Here we go, it’s getting warmer, so I know I’m getting close
To the light, to the stars, oh the stars
And your voice, keeps fadin’, as you whisper in my ear
Oh goodnight, sleep tight, oh goodnight

And just wait to take my life
And just wait till night
When the whole wide world has fallen sound asleep
Then you can take me, you can take me in my dreams

So I close, my eyes, and I take the final step
Through the light, to the stars, oh the stars

And just wait to take my life
And just wait till night
When the whole wide world has fallen sound asleep
Then you can take me, yes you can take me in my dreams

Stay

Written By: Adam Gilchrist

If your heart feels all alone
Take two thoughts, they’ll carry you home
And know that you’re not all alone
Cause there’s no time to waste here
We’ve only got one shot

So just open your eyes, and let the moon hit you right, inside your heart
And stop wondering when, your stars will align
Cause it’s time, when it’s time
We have to stay, we have to stay here today

If your head can’t find peace of mind
Drift with me, we’ll find the good times
Now hold on to the good that you found
Cause there’s no time to waste here
We’ve only got one shot

So just open your eyes, and let the moon hit you right, inside your heart
And stop wondering when, your stars will align
Cause it’s time, when it’s time
We have to stay, we have to stay here today

On The Run

Written By: Adam Gilchrist

When the pain just ignites
Can’t get my bones to sit tight

I’m on the run, the run, the run
I’m on the run, the run, the run

When the tear drop just falls
Will Mother Nature help me crawl?

I’m on the run, the run, the run
I’m on the run, the run, the run
And don’t you run
And don’t you run

When the emotion is right
Oh how the time just slips by

I’m on the run, the run, the run
I’m on the run, the run, the run
And don’t you run
And don’t you run

So give it up now, give it up now
Before it’s too late

Is This The Time?

Written By: Adam Gilchrist

Don’t move to fast
Till the secret mines are found
Cause they’re sleepin’ under ground
Just waitin’ to take us down

Is this the, is this the time?
Oh you said I’d be fine
So let me go, let me just go
I wanna step back, I wanna go home, oh home

So captain don’t call my name
Cause I don’t want to fade
And day after day, when there’s no one left to save
Will I be alone, alone?

Is this the, is this the time?
Oh you said I’d be fine
So let me go, let me just go
I wanna step back, I wanna go home, oh home

And don`t you worry
Cause I won`t let go

Is this the, is this the time?
Oh you said I’d be fine
So let me go, let me just go
I wanna step back, I wanna go home,

The Shine

Written By: Adam Gilchrist

So walk left, walk right, and we’ll figure it out
Sit down, stand up, somethin’ ain’t right
A good back, strong heart, well maybe it’s just bad luck
So with one step, two step, a hop skip leap and a jump
She tries to walk on, but the battle is done
When it feels like, oh the pain won’t go

So just shine on me
And just shine on me

They’ll look twice, think hard, but nothin’ ll come out
Just a face, a puzzlin’ face of doubt
And she knows, oh just what they’ll say
They’ll say sit tight, hold right, wait a minute I got it hun
There’s nothing wrong, and our time is done
And she know’s, it’s just how it goes

So just shine on me
And just shine on me,

I wanna just know, what I just can’t see
So if I believe, if I believe
Will life just flow?

So just shine on me
And just shine on me

Burn

Written By: Adam Gilchrist

Hold me now, cause I lost my lover
But if I’m back with her, by midnight
You’ll have to keep me back, keep me back
You`ll have to keep me back, keep me back from her, from her

Cause it burns, oh it just burns
And I’m on my own, oh on my own

Come on and lift me up, when I hit the ocean floor
I’m swimming side to side, in my own wallow
Come on and lift me up, lift me up
Come on and lift me up, lift me up from hurt, from hurt

Cause it burns, oh it just burns
And I’m on my own, oh on my own

Come on and keep me back, keep me back
Come on and keep me back, keep me back
From hurt, oh from hurt

Cause it Burns, oh it just Burns
And I’m on my own, oh on my own

Come on and keep me back, keep me back
Come on and keep me back, keep me back from hurt
