Biography

Every now and then, a musical unit comes together out of the blue for all the right reasons. A need for quality expression in the universal language that breaks down all barriers on all fronts is music today and this dynamic (4) piece from Brazil have it all and more. Best of all these guys have done the hard yards and worked their local market to build a solid story that sets them up along with their extensive fan base to go to the next level along with an international management team that truly believe in their craft.

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. As a student in a Canadian school, Paul Hodel (singer/songwriter) met a lot of great bands that gave him inertial motivation to write songs and to think about creating a band. In 2002, when he returned to Brazil with a home computer and an acoustic guitar, he gave birth to the first demo with strong grunge influences. When he met Leo Krieger (bass) and gave him a copy, they decided to start the band. One year later, Frank Martins (guitars) joined the band, and Leo invited Fabio Krieger (drums), his brother, to finally complete the Janice Doll quartet.

Their first EP "No Second Thoughts" was released in late 2005 and came with plenty of energy and was not enough, the song "Fall Apart" hit more than 119,000 views in the first six months on Youtube Website. With a huge tour, they transformed the songs into an electrical strong crazy performance, always leaving the crowd with a really great impression and yearning for more. Increasing their fan-base was natural, and they began to command great respect in the underground scene. One year later, they come out with their second EP "Walking in the Third Floor", bringing a great range of impressions and evident maturity to their audience.

Janice Doll's music fuses influences from Smashing Pumpkins, Muse to Nirvana and then adds a modern touch without any electronic samples. Crafting an intense vocal melody, power guitars, drums with a strong punch and a creative bass gives Janice Doll a special sonority that sometimes makes you remember a lot of different things, or nothing at all.

Paul Hodel, used to be a computer programmer, exploring the benefits of the Internet and giving Janice Doll a little bit of the world, made the results arrived swiftly. Through the magic of Myspace, they met Michael A Puskas, Astral Records / DEAD Famous Artists CEO, with whom they have now signed a management contract. Two weeks later, Janice Doll was chosen to provide music cues for the new TV Series, "Callabar Stone Age Warrior", which is slated for production in the latter half of 2007. DEAD Famous is already looking into the lucrative world of film, television and advertising placement and licensing opportunities for the bands material and have recently hooked them up with Music Supervisor (US), Song Catalog (Canada), Blue Buddha Entertainment (US), Pump Audio (US) and 444 Music Placement (UK) among others.

Janice Doll will take part in three compilations around the world with the song "London Please" in "Stay in the Box Volume I" Matchbox Records/UK, "RPMB" Rollapedra Records/BR, and "Dead Famous" Astral Records/AUS. Their debut album "Silent Seasons" a promising eclectic mix album with UK based rock and that all-important European influence will be release by Astral Records. They are currently working on their second album and the first worldwide tour will be coming soon.

Lyrics

London Please

Written By: Paul Hodel

London Please

I have no more fellings
A jump to the third floor
magnetic impulsive
Watch out a kiss

Cause you came like a stone
Don't you fear my ghosts?

Please don't leave my hand
Nobody knows and I can't complain

A chance but I'm afraid
A drink to make my day
I lived but I can't tell
I planned but I ain't alone

A perfect strike
Watch out a kiss
I trust my weakness
I have a pillow upon my face

Please don't leave my hand
Nobody knows and I can't complain

A chance but I'm afraid
A drink to make my day
I lived but I can't tell
I planned but I ain't alone

Some things need saying
But there are words that can't be said
Death is silent

Life holds infinite possibilities
To each one it's share
Death is present

They met on a cold London night
He drank to forget, She smoked to observe. One look. One simple look
United them for eternity on that night
Do you remember the words that can't be said?

He tries to fool himself
Questioning his own love
She tries to comfort him
But maybe just that night...

He wakes to a new day, gray once again... She's not there
A cold breeze cuts his skin
A breeze with the scent of blood
The bedroom window, a blow to the sky... Blood on the asphalt

And she's alone sick
Afraid of herself
Time slowly passes by
Death's just a matter of time

Are we alone in this world?
Is there a reason for this

Firefly

Written By: Paul Hodel

I will start my happy breakdown
When you cross the room upon the bed
I would like to kill my tendency
Sometimes you are better than me

I got a fake smile to please you
When you try to reach myself instead
I'm tied in so many directions
And I think is not enough for me

Maybe I'll give my victory
Don't forget to embrace it again
I'm so close I can't reach you
Don't smash me down


I will start my daily breakdown
Black roses still under the dress
I should cheat on my best invention
Sometimes my move comes back to me

I got to change my worries to teach you
When I say I will open my chest
I would never take protection
I'll fall with the words I kept with me

Maybe I'll give my victory
Don't forget to embrace it again
I'm so close I can't reach you
Don't smash me down

Don't smash me down
I need you to come around
You will get my breakdown
You will get my breakdown

Decompressed

Written By: Paul Hodel

Decompressed

You will take another way to tear
the charts when the lights are on
Every single chance no time
I better inspire when

You are not around
Every single piece leads me to the ground

This is the end of the line
I have this whisper in my head
That drives me close to the flames
Cast yourself upon the edge


You gave me the reason
I should be in the end
We got the sharks to swim against

You are bored on Valentine's
What I can declare
Don't you see I better inspire when

You are not around
Every single piece leads me to the ground

This is the end of the line
I have this whisper in my head
That drives me close to the flames
Cast yourself upon the edge

Autumn On Fire

Written By: Paul Hodel

Autumn on fire

Turn around
My autumn on fire goes
And you just have one chance
a brave unconsciousness

A hurricane
My pleasure licks the floor
describes when you came
Whatever you have to say

Suppress a smile
I will never be like you
uncounted drafts on the wall
I wish to embrace the world

Don't lead me it's your way
Don't ruim the world
You got to be the one

It is hard to care but I'm pretending so well
I got a friend who is better undressed
Coordinated movements and broken bones
I'm tired, bored and scared

Turn around
My autumn on fire goes
And you just have one chance
a brave uncouncioness

Don't lead me it's your way
Don't ruim the world
You got to be the one

It is hard to care but I'm pretending so well
I got a friend who is better undressed
Coordinated movements and broken bones
I'm tired, bored and scared

I never want it but I should take some more
Rose to my feet to break our curiosity
Coordinated movements and broken bones
I'm tired, bored and scared

Fall Apart

Written By: Paul Hodel

Fall Apart

Don't you count on me
And who loves you Christienne
I never, never need you

Protagonist who never bleeds
Now I know you are my disease
When you came I had a felling

We meant to fall apart
I never been so proud, who you are?
We broken in all you need
The pieces what you need, oh ohhh no

Don't bother me
Your regrets touch the ground
Your time is running out

Protagonist who never bleeds
Now I know you are my disease
When you came I had a felling

We meant o fall apart
I never been so proud, who you are
We broken in all you need
The pieces what you need, oh ohhh no

I put my head on my pillow
To shove you down on my day
As I got three nights on this
To brake you out of my way

As I was checking the sound of your heart beat
As I was cracking down when ou scorn me

Is there no way? So I can fit myself
In the ground till I frown
I try to wish you all the best
So look at me last

Expose your dreams to the past
and make no history
As you can't share life
with a loving hated enemy

Can't share life, loved and hated

Overdramatic

Written By: Paul Hodel

Overdramatic

Hey girl you came along you can't listen a word
You tell me what you can hide and you talk so fast

You take, you trust, you make
decide, it's nice, invade, a chance
the trace, the lead, release the flames inside
the means, the end, your face

My head is spinning again
I'm pretty much boarding the line
Kick me outside
My sharp skin to embrace you strong

When I hit the ground all the sounds to deconcentrate
Don't you tell me why I have to break the rules

I'm overdramatic, a fucking static
maybe I will never know
Don't you see, don't you see
You are quite a fucking...

You take, you trust, you make
decide, it's nice, invade, a chance
the trace, the lead, release the flames inside
the means, the end, your face

My head is spinning again
I'm pretty much boarding the line
Kick me outside
My sharp skin to embrace you strong

No Second Thoughts

Written By: Paul Hodel

No second thoughts

Save me from my broken army
I have been sleeping inside
Giving us your letargy
And maybe I will get over it

We just care for all we need
I've been my special enemy
we blame the walking upon snakes
We killing time in this beautiful day

Time is ticking...
Breath stealing...
Dying fading...
No second thoughts (2x)

Your answer... what I hate
You got the world, you change everything
I'm protecting our decadence
We killing time in this beautiful day

Time is ticking...
Breath stealing...
Dying fading...
No second thoughts (2x)

April Senseless

April Senseless

No kisses and no time to leave
No other hand, no other way
Then reach confidence an easy plan a good player

you are untouchable, you are untouchable
you are not the one and I sure you are not

I can't wait, and he kills
A piece of our eternity
with his beliefs
Whatever it means

We are in love
He has never been in love
What else do you want
I'm not ok

I'm just scared
or maybe afraid
Ohh no, don't push him
Ohh no, don't test him

And it was the first day
that I have died
We have no consequences
We are so young, so young so young

Give me it real a realist view
Give me a fight a black eye
You are fucking right what is all about?

A diferent reaction, a revelation
A single equation to move his world

I don't care, and he fills us
with a fake light and glory
And we were delighted
He is fucking smart

Over mountains
under our bed
I don't care
And I really care

I'm just scared
And I have no doubt
Ohh no, don't trust him
Ohh no, don't fuck him

It was the second day
that I have died
What important innocence
Making us so sad

Why don't I
Why don't I
Are you fucking
Are you fucking
Are you fucking smarting
Why don't you never die

Modern Teenager

Modern Teenager

Thousands, she doesn´t care
she's brought all that she's ever dreamed instead
Trying and losing everytime
She sells herself to keep her style

Don't bore him down
Don't let she close your eyes

Because if you do

I sure you turn out your bright
a movie they coldn't cry

No, no one, everyone
I'm just great
Trying and losing everytime
She sells herself to keep her style

Don't bore him down
Don't let she close your eyes

Because if you do
I sure you turn out your bright
a movie they coldn't cry
