BandRockPop

We are four 19 year olds playing the music that we love to hear: rock. We practice hard and play a tight, energetic and entertaining live show. We are extremely determined and are confident our sound is unlike anything you've heard. Drop us an e-mail, we would love to work with you.

Biography

NEVER dismiss someone because of youth. This batch of 19-year-old musicians – collectively dubbed Hasting – have the musical talent and potential of many folks twice their age. Alt rock artist Hasting is proof that talent doesn't discriminate by age. It shows up everywhere, including – and especially – in this group of musicians who turn out inspired songs with catchy hooks and plenty of pop sensibilities – all tied together with intelligence and creativity.

And when discussing the ingredients of a Hasting song, one can never ignore emotive potency. Hasting writes songs that can pick the listener up and carry him or her in whatever emotional direction in which said song is pointed. Just as the members of Hasting as music lovers themselves can be affected by another's music or by their own performance, so too their listeners benefit from the emotional communication of the band's songs. “When we write a really uplifting song and play it when we've had a rough day, it changes our mood completely. It is wild how noise has that affect on us.” And guess what? It'll work on you, too. Just play a Hasting song and get swept away.

Nirvana. Oblivion. It's not such a bad thing, depending on how you think of it. Imagine meditation, positivity via the removal of thought. Songs should so totally absorb you that the only thing of which you're conscious is the music that surrounds you. “There is nothing greater than if a song has the ability to take you to a place where all you think about is nothing and all you feel are the shivers running down your arms to your fingertips. In that moment, music is life.” Get ready, because when you hear Hasting you're going to be goosebump terrain. Feel the rush.

Hasting can lay claim to a number of hard-earned honors. The band has come out victorious in a whole passel of battle of the band events. Hasting's music has gone so far in its reach to have nabbed radio broadcast in England! And you know a band is doing the music right when it becomes an example for others: “When Heaven Comes Down” - Hasting's debut album – made an appearance on the Rock Drumming System instructional DVD. And listeners saw the future when they voted Hasting the “Next Big Thing” on AlternativeAddiction.com. And these guys aren't done accomplishing yet. Extensive touring is being planned and the group regularly appears on stage. New music is always pouring out of the band's creative process. Hasting is currently working with A&R Select, the hottest indie A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.

“Hasting truly is the next big thing – as already recognized by fans, and soon to be acknowledged by the industry as a whole.” - A&R Select

Lyrics

Fighting For You

Written By: Jordan Dick

I want to lift you up to where it's peaceful
without a care in the world
I would give you all you ever needed
I would catch you when you fall

I would whisper in your ear when I find out
that I want you to be the one
I would look into your eyes when I tell you it's real
you need to know

when heaven comes down
I will be there
I'll be waiting
when heaven comes down
I will be there
I'll be waiting

Your mind is here but your heart is broken
your lips are shaking too
you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders
but it's everything in you

when heaven comes down
I will be there
I'll be waiting
when heaven comes down
I will be there
I'll be waiting

when you when you when you wait
I'll be waiting for you I'll be waiting for you
when you when you when you dream
I'll be dreaming of you I'll be dreaming of you
when you when you when you fight
I'll be fighting for you I'll be fighting for you
when you take it all back and you will never know
how you how you will find a good reason to be mine
when you when you when you fight
I'll be fighting for you I'll be fighting for you


All These Things and More

Written By: Jordan Dick

if I had the world I'd give it to you in a blink of an eye you'd be up in the sky with the stars
wouldn't it be nice if that was true, I'd give it to you if you said you'd love me too

I carry your picture in my mind, all the time, when I think of you would you think of me one more time
if I fall this time I'm done for good, when I think of you, would you think of me one more time

why do I get lost in your eyes
when I see that your okay it just makes me wanna say that I
have needed you for so long it doesn't feel so wrong because I know we belong
together you and I

I get lost in your eyes, I know you never lie
I have seen your fantasy I know that you dont' have me
I know how you're frustrated and how you've hated going around on the merry go round of life and I
want to hold you give you hugs and give you kisses now don't you miss this
we lay under the stars, we throw rocks up real far, you look at me you are, the best friend I have ever had
your hand lies on my chest, I whisper your the best, feeling every beat of me and stealing every other girl away

Southern Girl

Written By: Jordan Dick

is there something that we should talk about

maybe you can see that I should let it out

and tell you everything

you made me cry, which made me shy
which made me realize that in your eyes
I'm nothing but a broken heart

you won't be mistaken
and now we're here today
somewhere far away

and here you are with your same fake friends
with your same old money
and same old diamond ring

you can swim you can sink in life
but I can see through
your american lies

you won't be mistaken
and now we're here today
somewhere far away
you won't be mistaken
and now we're here today
somewhere far away

southern girl, your southern accent
southern girl, would you come home to me

stubborn girl, your souther girl
stubborn girl, would you come home to me

you won't be mistaken
and now we're today
somewhere far away
you won't be mistaken
and now we're here today
