Biography

Homemade Headtrip (hoe-mayd hedd-trip) n : Six eastern Iowa musicians who sought each other out to create distinctive fun music that defies genres. Not bound by the conventions of Jam, Pop, Bluegrass, Reggae, Prog-Rock, R&B, Latin, Classical, Funk or Motown, but instead sampling from all of them, this band generates a unique sound and gives audiences a performance to remember with a non stop set list and an exotic selection of tunes. Two singers, two acoustic guitars, one piano player, one bass player and one drummer combine six heads and six egos to create the best sound they possibly can.

This band is experienced, creative and ready for the world. Professionalism and musicianship are priorities and this band should not disappoint any audience.

Lyrics

Midwestern Arms

Written By: Matthew Maybanks

I'll settle and surround you
like the air you breathe
So subtle I'll astound you
be your relief, give you belief

Giant Midwestern steps on the big city streets so cold
Fall in great Midwestern arms and let them carry you home
Let them carry you home

I'll settle and surround you
like a cool dark stream
So subtle I'll astound you
Like someone in a dream, someone you're not quite sure you've seen.

long legs span the rivers
flowing west to east
somehow still farther from The Sun
then from the sea
Farther from the sea

I'll settle and surround you
like a warm spring rain
Like home has come and found you
Like the blood inside your veins
the far off wail of a train

Giant Midwestern steps across the fields and the roads we know
Fall in great Midwestern arms
and let me carry you home
Let me carry you home
