Uptempo indie rock mixed with blues led by the spectacular Ashley Bullock

Biography

Great Waves officially began in an old portable converted classroom at Pine Lake Middle School. Paul (bass) told his desk-mate Will (guitar) that he could "play bass and sing real good... Chris Cornell style." Although Paul never quite backed up his claim, the two became friends and over the years played in several bands together. After adding Ashley on lead vocals and later Ryan on drums, they found collaborators that pushed the band to become greater than the sum of its parts. With a little help from friends David Bahr and Elliot Gray and lead by Ashleyƕs dreamy vocals, Great Waves plays a unique blend of alternative rock and folk, that has been likened to everything from Allison Krauss to Radiohead.

Lyrics

Sleepers

Written By: Ashley Bullock

I'm mixed up
Only what matters

Time ticks off
Each forever after

Wait longer still
Feel the pinch
Times constrained

And now you know
how it feels
To be left

Ooo
You know
Where you stand
Eyes down

Dragged on
broken binds
through the rounds
Through the rounds

Cast off
In your prime
Been through the rounds
Through the rounds

Chorus

Everyone
Everyone
Falls of again

I'm mixed up
I'm mixed up
I'm mixed up
I'm mixed up
I'm mixed up
I'm mixed up
I'm mixed up

Howl

Written By: Ashley Bullock

Lungs filled
Thoughts stilled
From racing darkness
Turning ourselves out

Eyes out of focus
Arms barely hold us
Up from water rising all this time

Fingertips
Seem to hit
Upon the surface
I am not convinced

You were always at the bottom
You were always at the bottom
Looking up
Fucking up

What have you seen
Staring back

Drown me out
Taken out
By the un... The undertow

Up from water rising all this time

You were always at the bottom
You were always at the bottom
Looking up
Fucking up

Hours

Written By: Ashley Bullock

I'd wait for hours
I've nothing but time
Like raindrops on flowers
They always remind

They took us for granted
We're always behind
My love we have shattered
This fragile life

I'd wait for hours
I've nothing but time
