Biography

At the intersection where real life meets passion and obsession you'll discover Insignia, a band with big hopes and dreams like all aspiring musicians and artists. Finding time between the rigorous work to school, school to work schedule of band members, they fight hard to accomplish their goals.

Formed like many bands in the latter years of high school when lead guitarist Daniel Messemer, a self-described "rock guru" met the naturally gifted vocalist/guitarist JC Nunez. They began fine-tuning what would eventually become Insignia's distinct and poignant sound. The band would soon be complete with the addition of Luis Quesada, a high energy drummer, and the “in the pocket” bassist and model, Kim Parrish.

Building on their influences of indie rock, grunge, and heavy metal, Insignia come together to create honest, heartfelt, powerful and ofttimes haunting music. Every track strives to touch upon the emotions of everyday life and the message is constant, be true to yourself, live life on your own terms, and always overcome.

The definition of Insignia means a "distinguishing mark or sign". Having similar outlooks and viewpoints has established a clear message that has become Insignia's mission statement. Insignia's philosophy is to take those "marks", whether they're marks of honor, scars of pain, or disappointment and wear them with pride…in life, on stage, and in the studio.

Currently the band members have come full circle in their own individual ways and have completed the basic foundation in order to take things to the next level. Using their website which displays the bands focus on quality and perfection along with the popularity of social media, Insignia have begun to spread their message. Being regulars at the famous Tobacco Road, Miami’s oldest and most enduring bar is also helping them attract a wide variety of fans.

The band has enough material to record their debut album and is working hard to find innovative ways to finance their dreams. With such passion and drive, Insignia is definitely a band to look out for. Expect to hear the name Insignia more and more as they recruit fans one by one with their amazing live shows, high energy, powerful music, and commendable spirit.

Lyrics

Hideaway

Written By: Insignia

"Hideaway"

Going to the place
The place I thought I left behind
Come on in my friend
I told you that you won’t survive

And I know it can’t be right
Cause it awfully satisfies
Wanna walk away from it, one more time
Turn my head again
Can see it coming hence
I can’t overcome it, not this time
Not this time

Break it down to look
If what I’m doing can be good
Moments flash nearby
I remember all the times I broke the tie

And I know it can’t be right
Cause it awfully satisfies
Wanna walk away from it, one more time
Turn my head again
Can see it coming hence
I can’t overcome it, not this time
Not this time
Not this time
Not this time

Maybe not today, but tomorrow I just have to find a way
It eats me up inside, I know I can let go...

And I know it can’t be right
Cause it awfully satisfies
Wanna walk away from it, one more time
Turn my head again
Can see it coming hence
I can overcome it, rest of time
Rest of time
Rest of time
Rest of time
The Rest of time

Here With You

Written By: Insignia

"Here With You"

Right here with you, is where I want to be
Is where I want to be
Right by your side, next to your soul
I’m never letting you go (let you go)

I can’t believe that you’re with me
For once I don’t, want to change destiny
And here with you I plan to stay
To show you more, forever’s days (forever’s days)

Right here with you, your heart overwhelms me so
It’s you I want to adore
And by your side, embrace I will
Forever I hope until (I hope until)
I can’t believe, that you’re with me
For once I don’t, want to change destiny
And here with you, I plan to stay
To show you more, forever’s days (forever’s days)
Forever’s days
Forever’s days
Forever’s days

For even not so long (never so long)
I just want to be with you (be with you)
To hold your hands in mine (hold your hands)
It’s all that, I just really need (I just wanted to feel you inside)
I can’t believe that you’re with me
For once I don’t, want to change destiny
And here with you, I plan to stay
To show you more, forever’s days
Forever’s days… (never so long)
Forever’s days… (never so long)
Forever’s days… (never so long)

Right here with you is where I want to be
Is where I want to be...

Just Try

Written By: Insignia

"Just Try"

The things you said to me weren’t real
I feel it in my heart
Words I’ve heard from you
Have torn my world apart

I’m trying to survive
This wicked hurricane
It comes to me within
Driving me insane

You don’t know how it feels
Deep within to heal
Tearing till I can’t feel
The bad hand of this deal
Just Try

These days goes by so fast
I still cannot believe
The day before you said
Get out of here and leave

Looking in your eyes
Betrayal has appeared
I’m asking myself why
I never saw your lies

You don’t know how it feels
Deep within to heal
Tearing till I can’t feel
The bad hand of this deal
Just Try

You don’t know how it feels
Deep within to heal
Tearing till I can’t feel
The bad hand of this deal
Just Try...
