Biography

Having enjoyed airplay at various college radio stations and web radio stations across the nation and worldwide including KKLA Los Angeles, CA, KCLA Hollywood, CA, KCRH, Hayward, CA, KUPS Tacoma, WA, KGHP Gig Harbor, WA, WSGR Port Huron, MI, KZOW Forest City, IA, WQFS Greensboro, NC, and WGEV Beaver Falls, PA, the band's critically acclaimed, self-titled EP Heaven's Burning has sold out. The group's artistic endeavor and sophomore release, Free Agents (Soul'd Here), demonstrates the band's maturity musically, lyrically, and conceptually, and as a limited run, is soon to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor.

Heaven's Burning has had the honor of receiving numerous positive reviews, both for the group's recorded music as well as its live show. The band has also had the distinction of being chosen to participate on many CD compilations, being acclaimed as one of two outstanding new artists on the "Gas Collection" produced by 7Ball Magazine, a renown indie music magazine.

Chosen out of 160 bands nationwide, Heaven's Burning was asked to perform as one of 30 bands at the Malibu MOB Festival (Music on the Beach). Similarly, Heaven's Burning was also selected as one of the top 31 local L.A. bands out of 250 bands to participate in an invitation-only Local Battle of the Bands Competition at one of the trendiest eateries in Pasadena.

No stranger to live audiences, Heaven's Burning has performed on some of the most prestigious stages in Los Angeles including The Roxy, The Joint, The Coconut Teaszer, and The Chain Reaction. The band's performance itinerary has also included some of California's finest college campuses including Cal Poly Pomona and UC Riverside.

On a nationwide front, Heaven's Burning has participated in several music festivals including Washington's Portico Fest (formerly known as the TomFest), the Grrrl Rock Musicfest in Illinois' popular college town of Champaign-Urbana, and Ladyfest in Michigan's state capital, providing support for P.O.D., Mary Lou Lord, Meredith Brooks, Five Iron Frenzy, and The Violet Burning.

Internationally, Heaven's Burning has traveled to Puerto Escondido in Southern Mexico to play a weeklong concert series for the city's annual international surfing competition, an event that attracts hundreds of tourists from all over the world.

In the fall of 2001, Donne in Musica invited Heaven's Burning to Italy to participate in a music fête and symposium at the Museum of Modern Art. However, concerned for the safety of its American guest artists, the organization understandably rescinded its invitation due to the tragic events of September 11th.

As social activists, Heaven's Burning has donated its time and proceeds to the Girls Rock N' Roll Camp, an organization that provides opportunities for girls ages 8-18 to develop their leadership and musical abilities, and Hannah's House, a shelter for single teenage mothers. The group was also invited by the city of Pasadena to perform at a benefit concert promoting peace.

Heaven's Burning, currently on location, shooting its next music video, is engaged in the planning stages of forthcoming musical projects.

Lyrics

Love 13

Written By: Angela Santiago Chung & Kristy Jones

Love
Love
Love
Love

We were born to love one another
It is something we must be
If we don’t let the sky pull us under
How can we ever hope to be free?

Love
Love
Love
Love

In a generation of glaze
We need to learn to love each other
We’ll be together despite all your hate
It’s the bomb that will bring us together

Love
Love
Love
Love

Kites

Written By: Angela Santiago Chung & Kristy Jones

Wish the rain would come and wash away the mud
Everyday’s the same; it numbs me like a drug
All that will take place has already been done
Plugging a hole with a gun; nothing’s new under the sun

CHORUS

Push me
Pull me
In, Out
I know what it’s all about
Subtext and faithless devout
Let’s see how this all plays out

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

Thinking little of nothing at all; now I forget
Are we like a sleep with the stars already spent?
Can’t put my finger on it, but I know their straight is bent
Can we have any meaning when all we have is intent?

CHORUS

Close the curtain and act
I wanna see what’s in back
Fixing a hole with a crack
Makes us all focus on that

Close the curtain and act
I wanna see what’s in back
Fixing a hole with some crack
Makes us all focus on that

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

Love Will Burn

Written By: Angela Santiago Chung & Kristy Jones

Where can I go to find a place to call my own?
They say I’m lonely, but I’m really just alone
Because of the rain, the flowers have grown
The more that I know, the more I realize how much I really don’t know

CHORUS 1
And listen
Be still
A song from
The heart
And ever
And after
At the end
And start

I have to believe in the end that the love I give will return
Nothing lasts forever; each season has its turn
Live and you learn, let go and cry
Love will burn and never die
Live and you learn, let go and cry
Love will burn and never die

CHORUS 2
And when you
Feel blue
I’ll be there
For you
And when you
Feel down
I’ll be on
The ground

Live and you learn, let go and cry
Love will burn and never die
Live and you learn, let go and cry
Love will burn and never die
Live and you learn, let go and cry
Love will burn and never die
Live and you learn, let go and cry
Love will burn and never die
