Biography

GROUP, a simply-named band of rockers, with a crazy brand of bluesy, soulful, funky, rock and roll. The four band members Taylor Lamborn (Vocals), Luke Pernici (Guitar), Joe Botta (Bass), and Dom Williams (Drums) have all laid their mark in the Cleveland scene with other notable acts. Coming together in Spring 2015, GROUP has made it a goal to revive excitement towards live instrument-driven music in a way that can’t be accessed as intimately when turning on today’s top 40 radio. All four perfectionists have worked together to create an act that is diverse in sound and constant in quality.

Approaching the one-year anniversary of the band’s successful first single, Trouble Sleeping, GROUP has just released its first self-titled 5-song EP: chock-full of soul and directly influenced by Cleveland’s vibrant music scene.

Lyrics

Trouble Sleeping [album version]

Written By: Taylor Lamborn,Luke Pernici,Joe Botta,Dom Williams

I've had trouble sleeping trouble staying awake
Since you've got to leaving me there's too much on my brain
See, I've had trouble sleeping, baby, trouble staying awake
Since you've got to leaving there is nothing on my brain
'Til you come over my house, over my house, come over my house now

I've had trouble sleeping, baby, trouble staying awake
You got to leaving me there's nothing on my brain
Oh, I've had trouble sleeping oh and trouble staying awake
Since you got to leaving there is nothing on my brain
'Til you come over my house, over my house, come over my house now

Yeah, Oh Now! Now Oh! Now!

I've had trouble sleeping and trouble staying awake
Since you've got to leaving me there's nothing on my brain
I had trouble sleeping, baby, trouble staying awake and
Since you got to leaving there is too much on my brain

Come over my house, over my house, come over my house now

[Insert crazy guitar lead here followed by some more of that funky riffy stuff]

*LOUD SCREAM*

Come over my house, over my house, come over my house now.

Don't Mind Me

Written By: Taylor Lamborn,Luke Pernici,Joe Botta,Dom Williams

Don't mind me
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
I'm just living in my fantasy she says
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
I'm just living in my fantasy

Silence it just echoes through her head
Up through the cracks in the floor
They think she's shackled to her bed
Never seems to leave it anymore yeah
And she's just living in that fantasy
She says
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
I'm just living in my fantasy

His hopes his dreams his wishes clog that drain
He stands knee-deep in whatever that remains
He's got no reason to stay
No means to go
And all he can say with his shattered soul is

I'm just living in this fantasy
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
I'm just living in my fantasy

Just here in the corner
Of my mind where I can take on
Anything and everything
Living in my fantasy
Yeah

They say don't mind me
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
We're all just living in a fantasy
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
Don't mind me Yeah
We're just living in our fantasies
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
Don't you dare now
We're just living in a fantasy
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
Don't mind me
I'm just living in my fantasy

Maybe I

Written By: Taylor Lamborn,Luke Pernici,Joe Botta,Dom Williams

Got a reputation to uphold
My porcelain skin is adorned in gold
You think that it's easy to do as I'm told, but
you know it's not what I want

Maybe I wanna kiss a girl
What if I wanna get high?
Maybe I don't really like
This world that you built for me
With these boxes from Tiffany's

Maybe I
Maybe I

Dropping these obligations that I hold
All this frustration isn't worth my weight in gold and
You still think it's easy just to do what I am told, but
You know that it's not what I want

Maybe I wanna travel the world
What if I wanna get high
Maybe I don't really like
The world that you've built for me
Some silver-spoon sorta pedigree

Maybe I
Maybe I

Still got a reputation to uphold
But I don't wanna do as I'm told
Oh, and maybe I
Oh maybe I

Maybe I wanna travel the world
What if I wanna get high
Maybe I don't really like
The world that you've built for me

Maybe Maybe Maybe I
