Biography

From a Whisper to Arena Rock: Bill Bennett and Heard bring back the All American Balanced Rock and Roll sound…”

Bill Bennett is a rock and roll fisherman and Heard is his rock and roll crew. Every record needs a memorable hook and Boston native Bill Bennett and Heard front man get it out of the way in the first 10 seconds of their debut ep “Have You Heard…” I can just see Beavis and Butthead de de de de dering to the hardcore breakdown that opens the record. It’s something for Josh Beckett to walk out to. I can see a 15 year old boy or girl pulling out Heards' lyrics and paraphrasing them to their parents "The blood in you is the same blood in me...then why do you seem like a stranger to me?.." Then she locks herself away in her room to listen to watch the entire series of "My So Called Life." From the opening hard core riffs of “Cancer” to the grungie ballad “Ever After” to the epic, real life guitar hero antics of, “Till Death Do Us Part” and “Beautiful Loser” that are like Radiohead- but dare I say- compassionate and giving to the listener. Heard blends the angst and frustration of coming to age, with the gratitude and gracefulness for those things and people helped you out. While located in LA now, Bennett, a proud BU dropout put his time in on the rock and roll streets of Boston in the 90’s, and ended up teaming up with fellow Boston native, and Letter’s To Cleo genius, Micheal Eisenstein to produce the record, and lend a few guitar licks too. Heard’s sound reflects the dynamic landscape of Bennett’s upbringing. Going between fast and slow, quiet and loud. Bands and backdrops from 4 season city bands like the Lemonheads and Aerosmith. The Replacements and Husker Du- like a Nirvana or Pearl Jam concert at the Boston Garden- from a whisper to arena rock. Heard live is a tour de force. Whatever you hear in the recordings, Heard live, draws on nothing less than the same energy of Springsteen, Guns and Roses, and the Ramones, with the class, performance, and sexiness of Justin Timberlake- making sure to toss in a little bit of Seinfeld every now and then to make sure everybody knows… Heard is there to have a good time and you are to. Have You Heard...

Lyrics

Cancer

Written By: Heard

V1:
It's been so long..
So long since I told you
What was wrong
The writings on the wall
The paint has dried
The paint has tried too hard to try
To make a seat
Save your place at the table

V2
Empty thoughts
So lost need to find me
I'll be safe
Catch me when I fall
Broken scars
Given all I can
Time to start
Breathe in and live again

Chorus:
I want to know you again
I am so sick of being scared
Moving on in out way
I want to know you again

V3
Lights changed
Traffics cleared a path
It's so hard
To beging again
Future presses
a warm embrace
Nothing left
Standing in our way

Chorus

Ever After

Written By: Bill Bennett

V1
Missing you the pain
comes so fast
Can not breathe
my mouth is clasped
Sitting watching
your face
If I only hear
The words to say

Chorus
Ever after
is ending Now
Ever after
Is ending now

V2:

I dreamed we were happy
in my sleep
Your head in my arms
I was complete
Scared to open
my eyes
For what's in front of me

chorus

Bridge:
I am Sorry
I am Lost
It's a shame
Sparkles they fade so fast

Chorus

Beautiful Loser

Written By: Bill Bennett

V1
Feel it taking you
Falling through
Control Control
It's all about control the intake

V2
Invisisble skin
I'm not too Thin
Sorry I'm a Mess
Ambitions thin

Chorus:
Am I Beautiful
Am I Beautiful
Loser any way

V3
Disconcerning toll
Am I whole
It's not on the screen
It's all inside of me

Chorus:
