Biography

In only a matter of two short years, The Midwestern small town act "Drunk Dead Gorgeous" has already made an impact on the vast music world: opening shows for acts such as Hinder, Papa Roach, Finger Eleven, and Hed(PE), to name a few, as well as securing nominations for four Grammy Awards.

The bands eclectic pop rock sound is a product of several genres meeting at a metaphorical fork in the road. In the age of countless carbon copy nu-metal acts, Drunk Dead Gorgeous stands alone high above the redundancy spilling out of speakers today.

Drunk Dead Gorgeous is comprised of Ian Moore, Derick Kapteina, Nicholas McClelland, and Jesse Wagner. Ian leads the band with his unique and captivating voice, and mature acoustic and electric guitar stylings. Derick adds harmony to the soulful lyrics of this band, and also gives the music a great foundation with his big bass lines. Catchy hooks, lavish textures, and beautiful counter melodies are layered into these timeless songs with Nick on the lead guitar and Jesse on the keys. The band also puts on an entertaining, and animated live performance. "The Great Disillusion" is the bands debut album which has ensured them a concrete, loyal following as well as strong recognition from fellow musicians throughout the industry.

The group has never required gimmicks to induce emotion from its listeners. The music alone has done that. From a broken heart, to a middle finger aimed at corporate America, DDG's messages can be empathized by all. That is what real talent...real music should do once you remove the head banging and oscillating lighters: It should leave you satisfied and inspired. Drunk Dead Gorgeous does just that.

Written By: Drunk Dead Gorgeous

Like the night I was shaking uncontrollably,
There's a place in her eyes, I had to be,
She said she didn't want to go home yet
She was searching for herself,
I'll take you where you want to go,
It's what I was born to do,

It’s true, if I die I‘d come back for you, it’s true

She wants to change but being the same is so convenient,
She tossed her hair says I don't care where we can go,
I said I don't know we live in a dead end town,
She says she knows where we can go,
We'll just play pretend for a while,

it's true, I'll do anything you ask me to. To do

The way is out through a virgin mouth,
Never even had the breath to ever figure out
What it is you've done for me.
Just take it now, no ones around,
Who has a prayer of release from me.
The sun will lead us there.
It’s true, if I die I‘d come back for you, it’s true
it's true, I'll do anything you ask me to. To do
The way is out through a virgin mouth,
Never even had the breath to ever figure out
What it is you've done for me.
Just take it now, no ones around,
Who has a prayer of release from me.
The sun will lead us there.

Odd Little Song

Written By: Drunk Dead Gorgeous

You don't know what I know,
Cause you never played my role
In the society side show.

You don't know what I've seen,
Cause you've never been where I've been,
And it’s a dark dead sad and lonely view.

The truth is wasted on people like you

An odd little song, an odd little song, for odd little people, it helps us get a long.
An odd little song, an odd little song, for odd little people, it helps us get a long.
An odd little song, an odd little song, for odd little people, it helps us get a long.
An odd little song, an odd little song, for odd little people, it helps us get a long.

You don't know what I know,
Cause you never played my role
In the society side show.

You don't know what I've seen,
Cause you've never been where I've been,
And it’s a dark dead sad and lonely view.

The truth is wasted on people like you

An odd little song, an odd little song, for odd little people, it helps us get a long.
An odd little song, an odd little song, for odd little people, it helps us get a long.
An odd little song, an odd little song, for odd little people, it helps us get a long.
An odd little song, an odd little song, for odd little people, it helps us get a long.
