Biography

Glamour Puss
Celebrated as one of Atlantic Canada’s top national/international touring acts from Moncton, New Brunswick, 2005 brings personnel changes and the group’s 5th recording.

There has never been a Canadian band quite like Glamour Puss. Who can they be compared to? Making music is a fickle vocation and it seems that many bands are defined by a song or two, perhaps even a couple of albums. In Glamour Puss there lies however a more treasured creation. Here is an Atlantic Canadian act that has aggressively pursued its raison d'être, courting risk at every turn and assuring their future in the process. Always re-inventing, repositioning, re-contextualizing and not once bowing to a challenge, they have never sounded like anything but themselves.

In the last decade Glamour Puss has developed a reputation as one of Atlantic Canada’s lead touring bands. Their energetic music uniquely incorporates vibrant elements of Swing, Blues, Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues and a unique Acadian flavour of their East Coast roots. Glamour Puss has a truly identifiable sound they can rightly call their own. With such a broad approach to their original music audiences continue to be all ages, families, couples, groups of best friends out to dance and have a great time. Glamour Puss has toured without end throughout Canada, the United States and overseas, taking their infectious Atlantic Canadian music worldwide developing fans and friends always leaving their audience smiling.

Since January 2005 Glamour Puss has been in pre-production creating new music and updating arrangements fully exploring the addition of Larry Maillet to the group. Larry brings to the group a powerful voice featuring harmonica and guitar, unquestionably one of the best singers on the East Coast. Ron, Travis, Paul and Roger the four original members of Glamour Puss are pumped with a bigger sound than ever, a sound that is more guitar driven and lashed with blues harp. The band hasn’t changed its sound they have simply become more amazing.

Glamour Puss has won three East Coast Music Awards, created and performed the music for the New Brunswick Tourism Department for 2003 & 2004 and is regarded as the most bilingual performing act in Atlantic Canada.

Lyrics

Bluesman's Prayer

Written By: Travos Furlong (SOCAN)

Bluesman’s Prayer
I don’t let nothin’ keep me down
I no don’t let nothin’ keep you down
The Good Lord above
Will fill my hear with love
So Don’t let nothin’ keep you down

Angels wings will keep you warm
Angels wings will keep you warm
Angels gather around
To keep you safe and sound
Angels wings will keep you warm

Lord said to make a joyful sound
Lord said to make a joyful sound
No sin to make this sound
Share his spirit all around
Lord said to make a joyful sound

And know that God is everywhere
Yes know that God is everywhere
When you’re in despair
Just say the blues man’s prayer
And know that God is everywhere

Leaving On Sunday

Written By: Roger Cormier (SOCAN)

Leaving on Sunday

I left home when
13 years was long enough
Sneakin’ out the back door
And out my momma’s porch

Half way out the county
’for they even let out church
Must a got 200 mile
’for they even start the search

Chorus:
(I’m) leaving on Sunday
leaving on Sunday morning
leaving on Sunday,
(And I won’t be) / Never coming
back again

Met up with a stranger
I called my friend
Said she would stay with me
There to the end

Said she would shelter me
Show me a brand new day
Anything I wanted
Nothing ever get in my way

Chorus:
(I’m) Leaving on Sunday
leaving on Sunday morning
leaving on Sunday,
(And I won’t be) / Never coming
back again

Used to wonder if
Ever there would come a time
All my luck’d run out
And I’d be gettin’ mine

The flash of a gun
I was on the run
I made it to this place

Somewhere to hide from danger
Somewhere I’d be safe

Chorus:
(I’m) Leaving on Sunday
leaving on Sunday morning
leaving on Sunday,
(And I won’t be) / Never coming
back again

Laying there / lookin’ up
I saw the Angel’s face
With eyes so sad
Somehow I know this place

Standing there over me
(She) Said you will never (have to) be alone
I always knew she would find me
I knew she would take me home

Chorus:
(I’m) Leaving on Sunday
leaving on Sunday morning
leaving on Sunday,
(And I won’t be) / Never coming
back again

Gravel On The Road

Written By: Travis Furlong (SOCAN)

Gravel on the Road
Far from heaven
We’re on the run
Them big old boys
Drew big old guns
Grabbed the oil
All the gold
Left you and me
Gravel on the road

I read the paper
Watch the news
See the lies
That hide the truths
All we know
is all we’re told
Cuz You and me
are gravel on the road

Chorus:
Gravel on the road
Gravel on the road
You and me
Bought and sold
Just gravel on the road

A brave young soldier
In a foreign land
Blood and oil
Mix in sand
Now he knows
As he grows cold
Like you and me
He’s gravel on the road

Chorus:
Gravel on the road
Gravel on the road
You and me
Bought and sold
Just gravel on the road

Now towers fall
Worlds collide
Big Machine
In overdrive
Just relax
Watch the show
Cause you and me
Are gravel on the road

Chorus:
Gravel on the road
Gravel on the road
You and me
Bought and sold
Just gravel on the road
