Biography

EXIT 29 is a four-piece band with a twist. The band has taken the unique approach of having two lead singers. Jason Scott on lead guitar, and Chris Leland on bass. Armed with the powerful energy of drummer Eddie Bast, EXIT 29 was formed. The three began to write their own songs and found creating music together to be effortless. So easy, in fact, that they realized they had too much material and werenÕt sure which tracks to include on their Debut album. By January 2005, EXIT 29 was in the studio recording their first album together as a band. ÒThe Story So FarÓ was nurtured through their passion for songwriting and by drawing on their own life experiences. The project has since evolved into a full-band setting with the addition of keyboardist Gary Smith adding old school effects and additional harmonies. EXIT 29Õs songs feature crafty vocal harmonies, catchy lead guitar licks, vintage keyboard sounds, inquisitively off-beat lyrics and a strong, thumping rhythm section to keep the music flowing. Their debut album ÒThe Story So FarÓ will be released in the summer of 2006 with much anticipation and is receiving an excellent response from fans. Sampling elements of pop and rock, this album has 11 diverse tracks that offer a little something for everyone. After listening to The Story So Far, you are sure to get lost in the bands memorable, classic power pop melodies, angelic harmonies and plenty of flavorful guitar licks.

Lyrics

BEST DAYS

Written By: CHRIS LELAND

Verse 1
Living in uncertain times
where some actions are unclear
Turning off the TV set, reminds me of why IÕm here
I never got into politics; I need truth and not those lies
I believe it what I see, I see you through my two eyes.

Chorus
As I look around me these are the best days
best days of my life
As I look around me these are the best days.

Verse 2
Sometimes there is a day
where I canÕt believe itÕs real
It feels like itÕs a holiday, all-inclusive package deal.
I used to think when I was young
that the world had passed me by
I never thought my life would be,
like a Christmas day surprise.

GHETTO BOOTY

Written By: CHRIS LELAND

Verse 1
When you walked on by it made me stop and stare
IÕd never seen something like your derri?re
Compared to other girls you were miles apart
Such a perfect rump, itÕs shaped just like a heart
IÕll be waiting to see if I can give it a squeeze
And when IÕm done IÕll use some of my expertise
IÕll be the judge the jury and the highest court
And when IÕm done IÕll be happy to report
Chorus
You got a Ghetto Booty (got a ghetto booty)
That things a beauty (got a ghetto booty)
YouÕre such a cutie (got a ghetto booty)
A Ghetto booty
Verse 2
That ass is like an onion brings a tear to my eye
I tried to walk inside and had to squeeze on by
So please excuse my hands if I gave it a feel
You got more junk in that trunk than an automobile
A mental picture of your seat is in my head
IÕd like a Polaroid picture of your can instead
I guess it might not work now that I think it though
IÕd need a camera with a panoramic view

Adore

Written By: Jason Scott

ADORE

I was the strongest man in the world
Till the day you stopped being my girl
I pulled out this box with pictures of you
I couldn't help but think what would you do

Do you feel the same way that I do
How I adore you
Do you feel the same thing I feel to
Iâll always adore you

I moved out of town just after June
Cause everything here still reminds of you
I could hear her voice still echo my room
I couldnât help but think if you only knew

Here I stand dancing in a bottle of wine
Choking on emotion
Playing out the role in my mind
That maybe baby

Imagination

Written By: Jason Scott

IMAGINATION

I never met you
But I know some day I will find you
Girl of my imagination youÕre a vision of perfection

No one could compare
So I find myself alone
Walking around in circles thinking
IÕm tangled up in you

Yesterday I saw someone
I swear looked just like you
She had the walk talk and smile like my dream had finally come true

I canÕt believe I do what I do
I just keep getting in my way
I donÕt know why I do what I do
Walking around in circles feeling
IÕm so caught up in you

Girl of my imagination
I'm blown away by you
Your a vision of perfection
I'm tangled up in you
Girl of my imagination

Does She

Written By: Jason Scott

DOES SHE

Where did all her feelings go?
SheÕs not the girl I used to know
But the bottle that brought a smile now brings her pain
Shattered glass from a picture frame
Underneath the bed she made
I can see it on her face the lines already show

You can run and hide
But if you look deep inside
You will see even you can bleed
On the outside

Does she really want to be alone?
Turn her back away from all sheÕs known
Does she really want to be alone?
Clouds in the sky mark time gone by
Hiding in herself only just to be alone

The words were black her faced turned white
I read her entries night by night
But the ink from her pen was blurred through the drop of a tear
Tore a page and I walked away
Never looking back till today
Cause you canÕt bring back what you lost along the way

Save Me

Written By: Jason Scott

SAVE ME

Staring down from two storyÕs up
On this ledge I feel the world is mine
Should I step back inside or should I jump
I donÕt know maybe I can fly
Theirs an old man on the corner with a cane in his hand
Screaming sonny donÕt you try it
Boy if they could see me now
They would see I need you tonight

Save me save me
My eyes are going blind
Save me save me
Myself I just canÕt find

Here I stand walking naked alone
In this world where know ones your friend
All I need is just one hand
To reach out and pull me in
Theirs an ache in my head and a fear in my heart
But something wonÕt let me try it
Boy if they could see me now
They would see I need you tonight

I never thought that I would be the one
Staring down at the ground all alone

WAITING (April 2002)

Another night by the telephone
Six oÕclock and the rain begins to fall
Knocking on my backdoor
Staring through my window pane
Looking out nothing ever stays the same
Except for me and the blue skies

My tide has come but washed away
I made this bed of nails I lay
Please forgive me when I say
That I canÕt wait to see you again

I know I never show
Still I want you to know
IÕll be here waiting for you
Waiting for you

Waking up to the morning cold
Inside my bodyÕs feeling old
I can hear it whisper
Should I stay or should I go
I want to run but my legs are moving slow
This could be the last time

Every time I dream and wonder
I can see a different shade of blue
And anytime youÕre feeling under
HereÕs a man whoÕs standing for the truth
I will be here waiting for you
