Biography

Eastborough is singer/ songwriter Stefanie Guzman and producer/ drummer Guillermo Subauste. Both Stefanie and Guillermo were raised on the energy, passion and DIY ethic of the punk rock scene. They followed similar paths through sound engineering, writing and performing in a plethora of genres to meet in 2013. 

Eastborough's 2011 full length debut "Your Place" was the result of a partnership between Stefanie and producer Adam King (Jill Barber, Jully Black, the Good Lovelies) following her move to Toronto. The 10 song indie pop album charted nationally breaking into the top 10 in St.Johns, Ottawa, Sydney, St.Catherines, Halifax and Guelph as well as garnering a spot on Earshot's top 200.

Eastborough is currently working on a three song EP entitled "Winter Fire/ Summer Youth" which is an introduction to a more simplified, guitar heavy sound. It records love and loss through the seasons and gives listeners a peek into Eastborough's new spirit.

Lyrics

Shuffle & Slide

Written By: Stefani Guzman

Won't waste my time
Waiting in line
For you

So, I don't care
that I don't know
What is happening
So, I don't care
that I don't know
'Cause I'm letting go

Study and life
Our hearts divided
The truth
We knew

So, I don't care
that I don't know
What is happening
So, I don't care
that I don't know
'Cause I'm letting go

Messages

Written By: Stefani Guzman

In a second I confess
Take the blame for my part in this
All the hands you wanted
In a second I'm regretting

You - and all your messages

In some time we'll forget
How this all felt like the end
and I'll go on to replace
Your memory with someone's face

You - and all your messages

Soft Step

Written By: Stefani Guzman

LET GO, LET IT OUT
EVERY STEADY BOW
SOFT STEPS IN THE NIGHT
PULSES WE CAN"T DENY
LET GO, LET ME DOWN
MOVING FASTER NOW
YOU'RE ALL EYES
HIDE THE TRUTH
AM I CATCHING UP TO YOU?

BUT WHERE ARE WE RUNNING TO?
KNEE DEEP IN THE AFTERNOON
WHERE ARE WE RUNNING TO?
GUILTY IN THE AFTERNOON

YOU STAND TALLER THAN TIME
STAY WITH ME HERE TONIGHT
LET GO, LET ME DOWN
LOSING FASTER NOW
SOFT STEPS I SHOULD DENY
SECRETS IN THE NIGHT
YOU'RE ALL EYES
HIDE THE TRUTH
SO I'M RUNNING TO YOU

BUT WHERE ARE WE RUNNING TO?
KNEE DEEP IN THE AFTERNOON
WHERE ARE WE RUNNING TO?
GUILTY IN THE AFTERNOON

I'M IN IT WITH YOU
I'M IN IT WITH YOU

WHERE ARE WE RUNNING TO?
KNEE DEEP IN THE AFTERNOON
WHERE ARE WE RUNNING TO?
GUILTY IN THE AFTERNOON
(repeat)

When You Ask

Written By: Stefani Guzman

This house is burning but the flames aren't showing
The days aren't long
With our lives they're going
You ask me if I mean it and I say yeah
You ask me if I mean it and I say yeah

Can't save the saviour when his heart is breaking
It's been months since I've seen it
and I'm still waiting
You ask if I believe and I say yeah
When you ask if I believe
I'll say yeah

This heart is burning but the flames aren't showing
Our days aren't long
With our lives they're going
You ask me if I mean it and I say yeah
When you ask me if I mean it
I'll say yeah

Absent President

Written By: Stefani Guzman

Thousands of words on paper
Intent - but nothing yet
I'll be away for months and
You'll be the President

Now you're calling
From the cold street
It's unspoken
What we're wanting
Are you sleeping
While I'm waiting for you to come?

I'll waste my time on messages and telephones
The sun always shines through the shadows of the ones we've lost

Our mouths hide promises
but our eyes are saying it
We're holding up our hands now
So there's nothing to regret

Now you're calling
From the cold street
It's unspoken
What we're wanting
Are you sleeping
While I'm waiting for you to call?

I'll waste my time on messages and telephones
The sun always shines through the shadows of the ones we've lost
Of the ones we've lost

I'll waste my time on messages
I'll waste my time
The sun always shines through the shadows of the ones we've lost
Of the ones we've lost
