A rough around the edges hard rock band with a hypnotic groove. Got Voodoo?

Biography

JANUARY VOODOO emerged from the shadows of the Minneapolis, MN hard rock scene in January 2000 when longtime collaborators Drew VanOrden, Jon Blaha, and Andrew Broste constructed the foundation of Voodoo. Shortly after it’s creation, the buzz about January Voodoo’s rough around the edges hard rock blend opened enough doors to get them gigs at nearly all of the most respected stages in town.

After having somewhat of a revolving door, Jeremy Lytel was added to the line up shortly before the recording sessions for "Eyes Open Wide" began. Jeremy's guitar overlays added new dynamics to their already magnetic sound. The glory was short lived though. January Voodoo is back to being a power trio and has plans on continuing in that form for some time.

Competing in 93X’s (KXXR) battle of the bands, numerous college radio chartings as well as being the number one add in Boca Raton, FL (WOWL) and charting for over 21 weeks straight in Rutson, LA (KLPI) are some of the recent accomplishments that January Voodoo achieved in 2003. Other successes include licensing their music to Mtv’s Road Rules/Real World, and having “The Machine” featured in Shut Eyes Records upcoming “Buzzlighter” compilation disc.

Lyrics

I Live

Written By: JanVoo Music

I’m lying on the table rising slowly
Bright lights and lots of people ...
say they know me
Well I might slip away from you
It seems to me
Voice inside me, telling me
Tell them all ... I live

I’m feeling kind of strange
I’m dreaming
Finding myself out of place
I’ve come face to face
I live

Now I have come
To save the day
Stop telling me
it’s just a dream
Take a look around

I’m feeling kind of strange
I’m dreaming
Finding myself out of place
I’ve come face to face
I live

Stop me now (I’m waiting)

Look into my eyes I’m crying
Simply because I wait for you
Leaving now without a vision
All because of you

Eyes Open Wide

Written By: Jan Voo Music

In this life
I’ll run forever ... chasing you there
I don’t mind waiting here
I’ve seen this coming ...miles surrounding

Sometimes
when I think of you I laugh inside
and sometimes when I think of you I get lost
far away

but my eyes are open wide
eyes are open wide
I’ve seen this coming ...miles surrounding
eyes are open wide

Insight
into what is real and really just a game
and I see now my light is gone
I hope you’re far away

eyes are open wide
eyes are open wide
I’ve seen this coming ...miles surrounding
eyes are open wide

and I hope someone saves you
from the sickness that you grew
your disguise made me blind
bringing me back one more time

In this life
I’ll run forever ... chasing you there
I don’t mind waiting here
I’ve seen this coming ...miles surrounding

eyes are open wide

The Scream

Written By: JanVoo Music

Yeah I have fallen into ...
My demise, so surreal now
and it breaks me.

I might be laughing
I feel no pain
The voice inside that calls my name
I'm drowning ... in this life
I might be laughing but screaming inside.

look around ... it's contagious
I'm infected
If you read my mind
You might find what I left behind
Welcome to the end

I might be laughing
I feel no pain
The voice inside that calls my name
I'm drowning ... in this life
I might be laughing but screaming inside.

The silence, it echoes through me
And here I stand waiting for this to end now.
Same as you I greave inside
Fade away ... I am faithless
I can't take this.
