My songs are a fresh mix of mainstream sound with an alternative flavor. My lyrics are well thought out and work well with the type of song I'm trying to produce. I prefer music to be clean and not cluttered with sound effects. My songs definately have the listeners singing them all day long!

Biography

I’ve been playing guitar for about 15 years now and have been writing songs and little jingles ever since I can remember. As a kid I spent a lot of time with my guitar and cheesy little keyboard making up songs playing them for my parents. I do, however, believe that this has helped me write songs today. Getting your creative juices flowing at a young age really teaches you how to use your imagination and not limit yourself to one way of thinking. I love the fact that I can create something that didn’t exist last week or even yesterday and have people listen to it and enjoy it as much as I do.

My music stems from many artists. I enjoy all types of music from Country to Rock and Pop and some R&B and Rap. I am a huge Tom Petty fan! I like The Fray, Eminem, Cold Play, Faith Hill, Evanesence, Fuel, Staind, Rascal Flatts, Blink 182, Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20 and many many others.

I am a highly motivated professional individual. I have a BS degree in business and currently work in management for a medium sized company. In college I had many mini jams sessions with my buddies but nothing ever materialized from it. I actually never even thought of music as a career at that time. The one thing that I never really stopped doing was writing songs. Sure, some of them really suck! You won't here those. But the more you write the better you get. I think what sets me apart from a lot of songwriters is that I have the ability to write up beat sing-a-long type songs with good lyrics as well as more serious deeper thinking songs. I also believe that each one of my songs has it’s own unique qualities and doesn’t sound like all of my other tracks. In my opinion not every song has to travel deep into your inner thoughts to be successful. Sometimes it's just nice to bob your head and enjoy yourself.

I am somewhat of newbee in the music industry. (Please don't let that scare you!) My goal is to get my songs professionally recorded in a real recording studio with a seasoned producer and a great band, either with myself or with an established artist that could instantly give my songs a lot of exposure. Once that is complete, of course I'd like to see my music sold online, in stores, on the radio, TV, you name it. (WOW!). I love the whole process of creating a new piece of music and ultimately would like to make enough money to do it for a living.

Are You Gonna Marry Jane?

Written By: Eric Delio

All your friends say she is not for you
Aw man… you don’t even have a clue
All I really wanna know is are you gonna marry Jane?
Hidn’ from her past is that even in fact her name?
You don’t know all the games she plays she plays
All your friends say hey! Are you gonna marry Jane? Jane? Jane?
Are you gonna marry Jane?

She’s got that look she’s got that body and she’s got that attitude
But she is only using you
All we really wanna know is are you gonna marry Jane?
Ay Ay Ay Ay
Are you gonna marry Jane?
Oh Oh Oh Oh
Are you gonna marry Jane?
Because I don’t think she feels the same
You might not want to play that game
She’s a naughty kind of girl gonna mess up your world
You don’t wanna marry Jane

Don’t be surprised when she lies and doesn’t come home till the morn
You’ve been up all night waitn’ for her
Everybody wants to know are you gonna marry Jane?
Hidn’ from her past is that even in fact her name?
You don’t know all the games she plays she plays
All we still wanna know is are you gonna marry Jane?

Now this is how I break this down for all the times she’s messed around
How can a girl who looks so fine suck you in and make you blind
to all the things she’s done to you and all the stuff she put you thru
now she wants to take your hand and you act like you understand
but deep inside you got to know that you’ve been used and lost control
now pick yourself up off the floor and tell that chick to hit the door

You don’t wanna marry Jane No oh no oh
You don’t wanna marry Jane No oh no oh
You don’t wanna marry Jane No oh no oh
You don’t wanna marry Jane!
You don’t wanna marry Jane!

Better Days

Written By: Eric Delio

I kick the dirt and look up at the sky
I see the clouds roll by as I try to make it through another day

I’m trapped inside this place in time
The whole world around me passes by and I can’t seem to find my way

I’ve got the weight of the world falling down on my shoulders
And I don’t know if I can hold it
I see my dreams fading away
I’m afraid but I try not to show it
I’m searching for better days

I remember my future was so bright
I had a plan I felt alive how did it all just slip away

Every time I turn around
It seams like something else is going wrong and I’m about to break

I’ve got the weight of the world falling down on my shoulders
And I don’t know if I can hold it
I see my dreams fading away
I’m afraid but I try not to show it
I’m searching for better days

We all want better days
We all want better days

I kick the dirt and look up at the sky
I feel the warm sunshine and I’m sure that better days are on my way

I’ve got the weight of the world falling down on my shoulders
And I don’t know if I can hold it
I see my dreams fading away
I’m afraid but I try not to show it
I’m searching for better days

Compose Myself

Written By: Eric Delio

I guess I should be on my way, I barely know your name
It’s hard for me to walk away, I know it’s just a game we play
Every other day, I’d like to keep it that way
Don’t say a word, no calls
What happens stays inside these walls

You want me to stay, but I don’t want to stay
You want me to call, but I don’t want to talk
I just need some time away from you
I told you I have someone else
Now I need to compose myself

I think you’re great, in a different kind of way
You say that you love me and you’re willing to wait
Things are getting complicated, and I can’t seem to let you go
You’re too intoxicating, and I can’t say no

You want me to stay, but I don’t want to stay
You want me to call, but I don’t want to talk
I just need some time away from you
I told you I have someone else
Now I need to compose myself

Why’d you have to go and tell the truth
About all the nights I spent with you
You say you got tired of being used
And you new you’d never be the one I choose
I knew someday it might come to this
But between the two of you it was worth the risk
I thought, now that everything is said and done
It looks as if I got no one, I got no one, I got no one

I guess I should be on my way, where I’m goin I don’t know
I wish there was something I could say
I sorry for all the things I’ve done
It won’t happen again this time I tell you honestly

I want you to stay, please don’t walk away
I want you to call, maybe we could talk
We just need to go and be alone this time there won’t be no one else
You said I should go %$#! Myself
Please don’t leave me
Please don’t leave me here alone
