Radio Rock. Pop. Alternative. However their music may be defined, there are three things which cannot be overlooked when it comes to this Brantford, Ontario-based band: they love God, they love their fans, and they love their music.

Hailing from Brantford, Ontario, Esoteric features Greg Davis on vocals, James Nelson on electric guitar, Chris Vacher on acoustic guitar & keys, Mat Masters on bass and Dan Parkinson on drums.

Deep Inside

Written By: Esoteric

Deep Inside Your Heart

Turn off the television, you know I’ve seen it all before
Don’t need more dry religion, my spirit longs for something more
I’ve often dreamed of how I’d pack this up and fly off into space
Down here it’s dark and cold – I want to leave this place

But I fall in your river of love
And I dance like a fool – I don’t need a reason…

I don’t want us to leave this moment again
I just want to stay here now right where I am
Never wanted to let you bring me this far
But now that we’re here, I want to be right where you are

Turn off the radio, you know I’ve heard it all before
I don’t need more contradiction, my spirit longs for something more

Then I fall in your river of love
And I dance like a fool, and I don’t need a reason

I don’t want us to leave this moment again
I just want to stay here now right where I am
Never wanted to let you bring me this far
But now that we’re here, I want to be right where you are
Deep inside your heart, deep inside your heart

And I fall into your arms of love once again
And I walk into the light of your presence, yeah..

I don’t want us to leave this moment again
I just want to stay here now right where I am
Never wanted to let you bring me this far
But now that we’re here, I want to be right where you are
Deep inside your heart, deep inside your heart
Deep inside your heart, deep inside your heart

River

Written By: Esoteric

River

Sunlight casting silhouettes on a day that’s come and gone
Evening is drawing near, ending the sparrow’s song
But the beauty of the night is not held up in words
It lies in memories of how we spent a life that has come and gone

And we will stand under your river
And we’ll be dancing in your presence
And we will sing about your glory
As we shout for joy, and tremble at your name

Moonlight drawing shadows on an eve growing ever near
Your kingdom is not far off, we’ll see a brand new dawn
We can hear your voice among us, and we can feel your breath on our faces
We can see your matchless glory in the joining of all nations

And we will stand under your river
And we’ll be dancing in your presence
And we will sing about your glory
As we shout for joy, and tremble at your name

When you lay your soul down to sleep do you pray the Lord your soul to keep
And what would Jesus say when he comes back on judgement day
So slam shut the open door, barring the lions roar
And don't give up your solid base, just seek first your masters face

And we will stand under your river
And we’ll be dancing in your presence
And we will sing about your glory
As we shout for joy, and tremble at your name

Find Me

Written By: Esoteric

Find Me

Living inside you, learning to trust you again
Fully devoted, your love overloaded for me
Wanting no other, try to discover the truth

Scream it out, make it known
Bring me to the mercy throne
Let your light rage inside of me

You will find me lost in your holiness
I will call you a friend

It’s easy to love you, nothing above you, my friend
Pour out inside me, you push me and guide me to you

Scream it out, make it known
Bring me to the mercy throne
Let your light rage inside of me

You will find me lost in your holiness
I will call you a friend
You will find me lost in your holiness
I will call you a friend

I’m sitting, I’m standing, I’m caught in the flesh
I’m fighting, I’m holding, I’m just like the rest
You push me and pull me until I can say
I don’t live by me - I live by faith

You will find me lost in your holiness
I will call you a friend
You will find me lost in your holiness
I will call you a friend
