Biography

"We get more than our fair share of material from independent artists looking to break their material into the scene and even though a lot of material is just a lot of material, there is always that little bit that shines through on occasion to give us faith in opening the mail again". RPM Weekly.

Cyr - is Canada’s newest star studded, powerhouse trio, whose infectious debut EP “When it Rains” is making a splash with music lovers and critics through out North America and abroad.

Since the winter 2004, following the collapse of his former band Blistercine. Cory Cyr has been busy cultivating a new sound and writing songs for his current project entitled “When it Rains.” To fully realize his musical vision Cyr turned to producer/musician Jordon Zadorozny to produce and engineer “When It Rains” at his French Kiss recording studio, located in Pembroke Ontario. Zadoroznys list of producing credits includes: Auf Der Maur, Sam Roberts, Hole, Cheerleader, The Sonny Best Band, and many more. All songs from When it Rains were written and performed by Corey Cyr featuring Zadorozny on drums. When it Rains has been described as, aggressive, edgy, melodic and downright contagious, with remarkable hooks, rock-solid musicianship, with intense vocals and inexplicably witty lyrics.

At the core of Cyr (the Band) is a dynamic percussion section featuring Corey Zadorozny (formally) of the Sam Roberts Band on drums & Pete Frolander from Blinker the Star on bass. All three members of CYR originally hail from Pembroke Ontario and share a common background and musical history growing up together playing in many bands around town.

CYR's music overflows with an intense authenticity, which leaves even the most sporadic listener wanting more. Best described as "aggressive, melodic alterno-pop", CYR lends itself to such acts as Nirvana, The Cars, Neil Young and The Flaming Lips. CYR possesses a hard to find combination of pop sensibility and in your face aggression.

“When it Rains” is currently available on-line and in stores across Canada via Maple Nationwide. Their debut radio single “Ever Lose Somebody” is tearing up the air waves with a video scheduled for release in September of 2005.

Lyrics

Ever Lose Somebody

Written By: Cory Cyr

Verse 1:

I'm running out of time
Not lost, although it hides
Introduce me and I might stick around
We were born for happy rhymes
All is well when all is mine
I'm running out of time

Chorus:

Ever lose somebody
Ever lose somebody you love
No, no, no

Verse 2:

You've seen it all before
It rains and then it pours
I'll slowdive through the stars with you
The lights are getting dim
And you did it once again
The candle burns at both ends

Chorus 2x

Bridge:

I twisted your words good
And it sounded like it should
I'll imagine only you
I'll admire only you
(Repeat)

Chorus 2x

Outro:

So far away

Drama Queen

Written By: Cory Cyr

Verse 1:

You act so self assured
Of all the things you've heard
Oh how you've weighed me down
How do you make that sound

Chorus:

Through incessant dreams
You belong to me
You're my drama queen
Alright, alright, alright
And I don't think so

Verse 2:

You seem so out of touch
And cursed with all bad luck
Your ego laden smile
Melodramatic style

Bridge:

And you lose yourself when I'm waiting
Drama queen, she's the queen of me when I'm losing
All out of touch, out of time, out of luck, out of your mind
Drama queen she's the queen of me when I'm losing
And I'm losing all of you

Where ya going?
You're just a drama queen

Back To You

Written By: Cory Cyr

Verse 1:

I can't believe the way I feel
For every living soul they steal
You twist and turn yourself to sleep
I'd rather be alone than free

Chorus:

And I'm coming back to you

Verse 2:

When I thought that all was said
A whine so thick it pierces skin
Find the things that fit your plans
I'd rather be with you in hand

Chorus

I can't explain

Chorus

Outtro:

What ya goin' to do

Above My Head

Written By: Cory Cyr

Verse 1:

I see the things that you don't hear
And feel your thoughts
They disappear
And I wonder what goes on inside
There's a thousand and one things
We can hide

Pre-Chorus:

It's getting darker and I can't move
Someone's calling but I can't feel myself

Chorus:

What do you get
And I'll take a chance through
What do you get
Take a chance right through your eyes
What do you get
When you go above my
What do you get
When you go above my head

Verse 2:

I'm not so easily amazed
And I'm tired of everything that's grey
As I'm staring straight at the sun
You've drawn my number
Just my luck

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:

Its been two weeks since you lost it all
Its been too long to know who you are

Chorus:

Outtro:

Would you go above

It's Alright

Written By: Cory Cyr

Verse 1:

They happened to be that way last night
Your crystal eyes
Pasty white deny
But you might wanna pretend

Chorus:

It's Alright

Verse 2

If something's uneasiness to me
A sense that is
Sacred in many ways
That's all that happiness is

Chorus

Bridge:

You know it feels good
We're feeling wired
Like the way it should
So overbothered

Verse 3:

They happened to be that way last night
Your crystal eyes
Pasty white deny
And I know, you'll never admit

Chorus

Outtro:

Don't you know

Cashmere Smile

Written By: Cory Cyr

Verse 1:

Lying there the screams are louder than before
I pretend I am the superman of all
Frozen still imagination counts to ten
Wish I had
Wish I had something to serve me more
As vividly as it seems

Chorus:

Ah, ah, ah drift apart and bring it back
Ah, ah, ah shut the door, try to forget

Verse 2:

Days are old
So I'm told you're too late
Scrutinize the things inside that keep me sane
Keep me sane

Can I hang on to you
Can I hang on to you
To you
