BandRock

hdr is a wall of sound. You will get hit with a sonic bombarding of heat-seeking riffs, as earth pounding basslines and bone crushing beats push and pull you in every direction. Under the command of catchy vocal hooks, stand up and be counted and watch us infiltrate the airwaves.--

Biography

sit down and listen to the story of three friends who have come from three totally different backgrounds, geographical locations and styles of music to create the power trio, hdr...

joe mora, hdr’s main singer and only guitar player, is a So Cal native who has been abusing himself for years with non stop gigs, parties and musical learning experiences.

amy tung, San Francisco classical pianist with a punk engine, can do it all, shredding a fuzzy bass, jam acoustic guitar or light up a keyboard to make people trip and don’t forget her chrissie hynde-like lead vocals she works into hdr’s chameleon like sound.

Johnny Lord, drummer from new england’s enfield connecticut, who needed to move out of the small pond thirteen years ago to come to hollywood to further sharpen his hard hitting style and his already evil street smarts.

the thing that separates hdr from all the zillion killer l.a. bands is that they’re three people who love to play slammin’, heavy, beer pounding, whiskey shootin’, high energy music and with all their unbelievable industry friends having decided to pull up their pants and join alliances, hdr gives l.a. another gold medal to add to its music collection.

so if you’re a life lovin’, good time havin’, party railin’ soul, come see us rip out a slammin’ set and party 'til there ain’t none left.

Lyrics

THAILAND

Written By: HDR

u got me tied up in thailand
u got me runnin’ the block
I just crossed the badlands
u got me rollin’ my rock
u got me crawlin’ on my knees
the end is coming closer
u got me snortin’ the cola
I gotta get out of california

pardon me
if u please
could u just
love me
all I give
all you take
now’s the time
make or break

here comes another shock wave
keep on chooglin’ through
10 miles to bayou country
that’s when I’ll be through with u

I feel the grind comin’ on
been up around the clock
too bad u took me for granted baby
you’re the one who’s outta luck

MUSE

Written By: HDR

welcome to this situation
fix a drink pull up a chair
knew what I was getting into
at the time I didn’t care
now I do
so much for you
all the pleasure I went through
me and my drunken muse
so worth it

looking back at all the good times
weigh them up against the bad
I will always have that memory
of you on the table dressed in plaid
looking good
staring up at you
all the pleasure I went through
me and my drunken muse
so worth it

force of nature pulling at us
time for a new change of pace
tried to hard to please each other
ended up last in the race
so I’m through
with my drunken muse
to much god damn booze
me and my drunken muse
so worth it

MOVIN'

Written By: HDR

she’s coming at u now
side steppin’ low brow
feelin’ like u need somethin’
stop drop roll
we move back and forth
without remorse
nobody knows you now
they might say

we roll on different ground
we’re going downtown
what’s wrong with me now
I said sorry
we move back and forth without remorse
wont you come and play with me today

we are rollin’
on a different path
I’m not deciding were we go or were we crash
we are movin’
back and forth
it didn’t matter now
so it shouldn’t matter anymore
