Biography

FOREVER (always) OEUVRE (a work of art).

These hearts drawn together by the passion that they share, intertwining their souls, and bringing to life a new kind of love.
Rachelle, with her mind catching lyrics and God sent voice, sets the tone for what is about to happen. Sifting through the noise you will find stories of familiar suffering...and lying beneath the mess of words you may find comfort in the sound. The engulfment of bone crushing riffs and hard hitting beats, create a beautiful setting for a vulnerable state of mind.. reminding you of the beauty that is always lurking in the darkness.

In early 2007, Ronny Paige (current bassist of FUEL, former five.bolt.main. and Rev Theory) came together with vocalist/lyricist Rachelle Holscher in Cincinnati, Ohio. Both at a stand still in their musical careers, they felt the need to create something that they felt should bring more meaning to their lives. They immediately began writing + recording new songs, as they searched for the perfect beings to fill the remaining spots of what was becoming forever oeuvre. Ryan Sebastian was soon brought in on keys + Jimi Holscher (Rachelle's brother) brought in to play 2nd guitar. Their amazing ability to harmonize with the melodies created by Rachelle, whom both had previously been involved in projects with her, presented the fact that something magical was beginning to unravel.

By 2008, FO was impatiently awaiting the chance to lay down the music they had created. Without a drummer to yet be inducted into their project, they were blessed with a rare opportunity to go into a prestigious studio to record their debut EP. (later titled "not finished") Ronny had asked his good friend Chad Szeliga (current drummer of BREAKING BENJAMIN) to simply lay down drum tracks in the studio.. but upon completing the EP, Chad had soon fell in love with what forever oeuvre was doing and decided to continue on becoming a full time member of the band. (labeling forever oeuvre as his side project) They later brought in a very talented bassist, Aaron Bruch.

With forever oeuvre's members finally in place...and lots of hard work and dedication, they have recently been setting their stage on Fire with the high energy that they bring and the ability to drawl in their audience, always leaving them wanting more.

Because of the success + impact they have been making, radio stations in major cities have been catching onto the buzz and incorporating FO into their play rotation.. only creating a much bigger buzz for this new HOT rock band. forever oeuvre's single "first stone" has been the number one most requested song in NEPA on 97.9x, since they began spinning them in late December.

Passionate + dedicated.... forever oeuvre is ready to take the world by storm! This multi talented band not only hits the stage hard + heavy, but their acoustic performance is just as intriguing. With years of experience + knowledge under their belt, (given their two national touring members) they still know how to keep it real + are ready for new adventures! This band is here to stay as they keep striving to reach their goals. Putting all of their emotions into what they love + willing to do whatever it takes to reach out to as many people as they can.

Currently, forever oeuvre has decided to take on everything they are doing, themselves. Although they have been grabbing the attention of major labels, forever oeuvre feels that it is best to apply their knowledge of the music industry + take things into their own hands. Marketing this band is easy, and once you listen to their music and see their live show, it is undeniable the potential they possess.

FOREVER OEUVRE is the endless tale of an artist's work.

Lyrics

first stone

Written By: rachelle holscher

the stains on your face display nothing ever goes your way
the flames all in your face you want to make them go away
aware of all the mistakes you've made
they keep you down, keep you down
and you curse yourself

falling down, taking count, keeping sober
when everyone else goes out
they're on their own, you're on your own
making easier to cast the first stone

just wait a minute now i say, someone has come to save the day
stripping the old away. out of the dark and unashamed
now follow through and take your place
you made it out, made it out
and you love yourself

falling down, taking count, keeping sober
when everyone else goes out
they're on their own, you're on your own
making easier to cast the first stone

don't be the bad guy baby, don't think that everyone's like you
you see them acting crazy, their eyes are blind like pictures faded
(they can't see you)
replace their sight with what you hated
(make them feel you)
you're on your own, not alone, but on your own
you're not alone, on your own, but not alone
you're on your own, not alone, but on your own
you're not alone, on your own, but not alone

falling down, taking count, keeping sober
(when everyone else goes out)
they're on their own, you're on your own
making easier to cast the first stone

falling down (they're taking count)
keeping sober when everyone else goes out
their on their own, you're on your own
making it easier to cast the first stone

guilty

Written By: forever oeuvre

10,000 years of suffering is what they've given me. out of spite couldn't control their tongues of blaspheme. why should i remain so speechless like i'm ashamed are you kidding me? its sickening, the wicked of the world.
conniving troubled deceitful people fooling themselves

guilty guilty
you're no different
so filthy filthy
mess you're living in
dirty world its all around you now
the righteous are covered in blood

what will it take for you to believe? that it starts with you, yes it starts with you, you can lie to yourself but its not so convincing, when violence is never ending! if silence is a way of pretending, that you won't stand accused like you're not hiding from the truth.
conniving troubled deceitful evil fooling yourself

guilty guilty
you're no different
so filthy filthy
mess you're living in
dirty world its all around you now
the righteous are covered in blood

boom here comes the devil and he's gonna gonna make his way inside and you're gonna wanna find a place to hide so you better stop running from yourself
boom here comes the devil and he's gonna gonna make his way inside and you're gonna wanna find a place to hide so you better start running from yourself
here the crows are getting louder preying on the death around us, hear the crows are getting louder preying on the death thats found us.

guilty guilty
you're no different
so filthy filthy
mess you're living in
dirty world its all around you now
stop stop stop
cause you're so
guilty guilty
you're no different
so filthy filthy
mess you're living in
dirty world its all around you now
the righteous are covered in blood

the war of the worlds and these worlds are colliding with sickness + dying cause everyones fighting and everyones trying but no one is finding the weakness inside us destroying us all.

simple song (money doesn't grow on trees)

Written By: rachelle holscher

what could be better than reliving your life...rewinding...

in a round about way i've made a statement, but not made a difference and i never realized i could be on the receiving side. so i try to remember to not be so defensive, but hey i've done it again. so here i stand recalculating my mistakes, maybe i'll find a better way.

and he said come on i'll get you whatever you want. i thought i don't know what that would be, money doesn't grow on trees. sometimes life gets in your way sometimes i don't know what to say it just seems, nothings getting better.

what could be better than reliving your life, rewinding? try to take the first step. i said what could be better than reliving your life, rewinding... its never easy where this could leave never knowing where you're going so unsure about the redirection.

and he said come on i'll get you whatever you want. i thought i don't know what that would be, money doesn't grow on trees. sometimes life gets in your way sometimes i don't know what to say it just seems, nothings getting better.

i've got to take this chance and never nvere never look back
i've got to take this chance and never look back and try to remember its not always what i want no its always what i want but what i need.

and he said come on i'll get you whatever you want. i thought i don't know what that would be, money doesn't grow on trees. sometimes life gets in your way sometimes i don't know what to say it just seems

he said come on come on.. whatever you want, whatever you need. sometimes life gets in your way sometimes i don't know what to say it just seems nothing's getting better... getting better... getting better

i am

Written By: rachelle holscher

i've been feeling dead and lonely. i'd go to sleep but i'm too scared to close my eyes. heart is racing, barely breathing, please come and save me from what i'm feeling inside.

here i am scarred and broken.
falling on the ground and i'm screaming out, i need you now. i'm so afraid that i am slipping, i'm slipping, i'm slipping farther away.

i am sorry, i'm so dirty. so torn and angry that i am covered in this sin.. but you see through the ugliness thats taken over me.

here i am scarred and broken.
falling on the ground and i'm screaming out i need you now i'm so afraid that i am slipping i'm slipping farther away

in the silence i can feel you
don't let me slip away
in the silence i can feel you, feel you reaching all my tears are washed away and i am breathing again, breathing again

here i am scarred and broken.
falling on the ground and i'm screaming out, i need you now. i'm so afraid that i am slipping, i'm slipping, i'm slipping

farther away without you, falling on the ground and i'm screaming out to you, i need you now, i'm so afraid that i am slipping, i'm slipping, farther away.

everything's perfect

Written By: rachelle holscher

i have been living recklessly in such misery for so long. i won't let it break me. i won't let it take me, but through the suffering i am losing my strength.

take it away all of this pain i'm holding inside. there's no where to run, no where to hide, when i am scared of, scared of, facing a world outside of my head, its so different there where i wanna be.

i have been waiting wondering why i've let myself lose my way. searching for another answer. anything to make it better, struggling to wanna make it through one more day.

take it away all of this pain i'm holding inside. there's no where to run, no where to hide when i am scared of, scared of, facing a world outside of my head. its so different there where i wanna be.

and then i see inside a heart you have given new life. its so beautiful where i wanna be.

take this away.. all of this pain i have been holding inside.
there's no where to run when i'm sacred of facing a world outside of my head, its so different there. where i wanna be.
