Biography

Easy Bear is a California Pop/Rock band based out of Santa Barbara and formed in 2012 by long-time friends, singer/guitar player Joey Enthoven and drummer Matt Lopez. Joey and Matt spent the beginning months of the bands existence writing songs and creating the sound that is Easy Bear, without a bass player. After several months of fine-tuning and writing it was evident that Easy Bear needed to fill the low-end void in order to propel the band forward. Auditions were held and after several unsuccessful players, Easy Bear added another friend to complete the line-up in Noah Donnelly. Noah was able to provide the tight rhythmic bass lines that completed Easy Bears sound. After several rehearsals the band was finally ready to take the act to the masses. Shortly after they took their first show on last minute notice at The Creek Side Inn in their hometown of Santa Barbara. With an overwhelmingly great response from the crowd, Easy Bear has continued to perform at virtually any venue that will have them and continues to create a buzz. The band has since recorded an EP that was released on 2/18/14 and is available on iTunes, Amazon and other music marketplaces. Recorded in the guest bedroom of Joeys parents house, the EP was tracked over a weekend in November 2012 while Joeys parents vacationed (thanks Gerald & Ria!). The band used twin mattresses to block noise from escaping out the windows in the guest room in order to not have the cops called on them. This DIY approach is what defines Easy Bear. However, the band has picked up some help along the way. Recently the band has signed with Mark Rasmussen of Street Loyal Management. Since signing with Mark Easy Bear has played such venues as the House of Blues, The Hotel Cafe, and SOhO Restaurant & Music Club.

Lyrics

Give Me Your Love

Written By: Joey Enthoven

If you want we can run, we can hide in the hills
We can live life crazy and run up the bills
Oh, baby don't be ashamed. There's no shame in livin' babe
All we need is each other and God's good will

I'll give you my love,
give you my love,
give you my love,
give you my love
If you give me your love, I'll give you my love

I know nothings important if you ain't got love
You can have all the riches, but it ain't enough
Oh, baby please let me in, you make me a better man
All we need is each other, we don't need much

Chorus

My Girl

Written By: Joey Enthoven

I love ‘em all each and every day
I can’t keep quiet, I can’t keep straight
God I love her, I love her so much
I gotta give her all of the above

Cuz she’s my girl, she’s my girl, she’s my girl
Yeah, she’s my girl

I keep it quiet, I keep it routine
I keep it simple, I keep it clean
I give her everything that she needs
It’s quite simple, it’s birds and the bees

Chorus

Already Mine

Written By: Joey Enthoven

We gotta go we gotta get away
We have no choice but to leave this place
We can drive all night until the morning light
We can go at your own pace
We can take it slow anyway
Baby, please don’t cry
I’m going to make things right

Because you’re already mine
Yeah, you’re already mine

Keep your hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the open road
Cuz were moving fast, we’re never going back
It’s up to me to fix this mess
It’s up to me to do my best
To keep you safe, baby don’t be ashamed

Chorus

Yeah, yeah, baby
You’re already mine

If we can get through this baby
We can do anything
Let me be your sun and your moon in the sky

Run Virginia Run

Written By: Joey Enthoven

I can see diamonds when I look in her eyes
You’re killing me baby, but thats no surprise
If I could say anything
I’d tell you to leave him baby

Run
Run Virginia run
Run
Run Virginia run

You say that you love him, but he can’t make you smile
Killing me baby cuz you’re in denial
If I could say anything
I’d tell you to leave him baby

Chorus

We’ve gotta leave
Don’t make a scene
Just come with me

Chorus

Stole My Heart

Written By: Joey Enthoven

I can say a lot of things that I might regret
I'm nervous honey, let me ease in
I'm not used to this

I saw you coming from miles away, like a shooting star
You're the sweetest thing I have ever seen
Yeah, you stole my heart

I'm caught in a triangle and I can't let go
She's more than just any other girl, I gotta let her know

I saw you coming from miles away, like a shooting star
You're the sweetest thing I have ever seen
Yeah, you stole my heart
I'm weak for you girl, yeah I need your love more than anyones
You're it you're the only one I really want
