Biography

Imagine, through the forces of cosmic alignment, a group of musicians from diverse backgrounds have come together with one mission: to save the world with music.
Along their journey they have gained many new friends, battled enemies, conquered demons, been blessed by angels, traveled to the ends of the Earth, witnessed the depths of Hell, and seen the pearly gates of Heaven in the skies above.
It is a story of innocence and corruption, of truth and deceit, of freedom and slavery, of happiness and anguish, of unity and conflict, of peace and war, & of prosperity and poverty.
Through their oddyssy pilgrimage, they have discovered the one true solution to every problem in the world. These humble musicians have stumbled upon the secret to life itself. They have realized a way to free humanity from the clutches of evil and deliver them into a new Golden Age. They have discovered that the problem is the solution.
They have since returned to reality to share the tales of their exploits and unite their generation in the movement towards sustainability. Thus, unlocking the keys to the universe.
The only choice we have is to act out of Love or to surrender to the tyranny of Fear.
Time is running out, yet time is just an illusion. Will 2012 be the end of the world, or the beginning of a new one? The Phoenix is rising towards rebirth!
The best part of this story is that it is not a story at all, it is TRUE ...
... and it all begins with the beautiful sound of music, oh sweet music.

Idyllistic is the pursuit of paradise - the harmonious unity of music, man, & the environment.
Idyllistic is a rock band from Tempe, Arizona formed in 2006 by original members Johnny Monsoon (percussion), NeuMan (bass), and Jonny Van (guitar, vocals). Since then they have joined forces with Drew Fo-Sho (lead vocals), Billy Hogan (keys, vocals), and Glynn Ray (guitar, vocals) to create a truly dynamic musical range. They also collaborate with an endless array of friends.
They seamlessly combine rock, reggae, funk, blues, jazz & hip-hop in a fusion of musical genius to create a modern medium for feel good music to thrive once again.
Their live performance blends drama, comedy, improvisation, interaction and special effects into an incredible spectacle of music & visual art that motivates the audience to get up, dance, and be merry. After the show is over, fans are inspired to “be the change” that they want to see in the world.

Lyrics

Hold Me

Written By: idyllistic

Its in that style
Its in the way you move, now
Everything about you drives me crazy
You, you're moving oh so smooth
and you've got such a tight ass body

But, I don't think I've got that kind of stamina
To keep you up all night
I want to make you feel beautiful
Is that not right?

Its in that style
Its in the way you groove
Everything about you drives me wild
You, you're moving oh so smooth
And you've got that kind of style

What would it be,
Anything you say
I want to get that out of the way
I want to make you feel beautiful
Is that right?
Is that right?
Woah

Won't you hold me
I think it would feel so nice
If you, come and hold me
Oh babe

Its in this bar
Its in this white guitar
Idyllistic going to take you so far
We got that kind of sound
Get you up and just move around

What would it be,
Anything you say
I want to get that out of the way
I want to make you feel beautiful
Is that right?
Is that right?
Woah

Won't you hold me
I think it would feel so nice
If you, come and hold me
Oh babe

What? What? What?
