If Blink-182 and the Strokes had a love child, Insofar would beat him up for his lunch money. Insofar plays So-Cal style rock, and retains an edge from their New York influences.

Biography

November 22, 2002: Sky thought he needed a breath of fresh air from the hustle of New York City and the tragedy of 9/11 so he got into his Ford Chateau and took off bound for the west coast with Rosa Lee, one of the greatest photographers in the world. Little did he know that what was in store for him was to meet 3 other amazing musicians that would single handedly take on the challenge of changing the face of rock as we know it, forever. First being Mark Jackson-Weaver. Mark grew up in Albuquerque, NM, where he spent most of his time stealing american flags and playing in the punk rock band "Question the Answers". This not only cultivated his love for music and drumming, but also honed his destructive skills. However, he soon got bored of the small-town niceties of Albuquerque, so he decided to pick up and move to Hollywood to see what it had to offer. Thai Pichon, born under a full moon on Halloween would be the next musician Sky comes in contact with. After trying out dozens of singers Thai was perfect. Originally from Danville Illinois, Thai has been performing as long as he can remember. He found his way to Hollywood through American idol. After becoming a finalist and being sent to LA he fell in love with it, went home packed his things and joined insofar. His vocal ranges are amazing and sound just as good live as in the studio. The third and final member would be metal singer/songwriter Zach West. Zach is originally from New England and moved out to California for one reason: to make the dream he has started a reality. He is well known for playing a variety of instruments, but when it comes down to it, guitar is his weapon of choice. After trying out numerous guitarists, Sky heard Zach’s music online and contacted him. Zach headed up to LA from San Diego and the connection was amazing from the start. INSOFAR was born! INSOFAR played warped tour 2004 for 3 weeks, has released a full length, and they just finished a new 3 song demo and are heading out back on tour this summer!

Lyrics

Diane

Written By: Insofar

It used to be I was your hero
Now you say you're gonna go your way
And I can see as I look in the mirror
All your tears are fallin down like rain

Come on, Diane
Talk to me and tell me all the good things that we planned...

Chorus:
Don't let the rain, Diane
Find a way to your heart
Don't let the pain, Diane
Wash away, wash away the biggest part

I never thought
This day would ever come
It feels like the sun and the sky is falling
The grey and blue
All fade into one
And in the distance I can hear a voice calling...

Come on, Diane
Talk to me and tell me all the good things that we planned...

(Chorus)

The clock goes tick, tick tock tick
As I sit and wait for the phone to ring
I hate myself and all of my thoughts
In the distance I can hear a voice calling...

Come on, Diane
Talk to me and tell me all the good things that we planned...

(Chorus)

The Fix

Written By: Insofar

You sold me down the river tonight
You did me wrong when I did you right
What tomorrow brings I don't know
I want to stay but I have to go

Chorus:
When I say I'm in the fix, I'm in.
Will you get me out? Get me out
There is no tellin, tellin
What would happen?

Never under rate the devious mind
'Cause desperate times bring desperate crimes
There's two kinds of people in this world
One can be bought and one can be sold, one can be sold

(Chorus)

I'm in, I'm in, I'm in
Inside this bubble
I'm in, I'm in, I'm in
Big big trouble
And will you get me out
For just one minute by now
I'm deep in it

(Chorus)
