City Serene's music comes straight from my inspirations. Each song is powerful in its own way adding an ambient flow to each set. From the lyrics to the guitar progressions you can feel what he felt when writing each song. Every set he plays is a new experience not just to him but to his audience.

Biography

City Serene consists of Indie/Alternative artist Jeff Warner. His biggest influence, although sometimes regarded as cliche, is life. He writes each song in reflection of what he is thinking and feeling at that point in time. Every emotion he has is put into my music and it comes through in his performances.
With over 100 originals, City Serene found his style constantly changing but really settled in the Indie/Alternative genre. Jeff writes to write and plays to play. Every single song is original including the lyrics; everything is written and composed by Jeff Warner. He grew up in the Western New York area, in a town called Chautauqua. Although Jeff wasn't born in New York, he spent the majority of his life there. His inspiration first came from shitty relationships and favorite bands but after another three years and 105 songs later he developed a sense of inspiration from everything around him. Jeff started playing solo locally after two months of writing. Ever since he has played bars, coffee shops, local venues, music festivals, and venues through out several states. Jeff's heart and soul goes into his music and does all that he can to play his best at every single gig. His number one goal for each show is to make sure he gets the fans off and does what ever he can to do that.
Music is my real passion and it really does show in my performances. I am a nice, respectful artist and will do anything to please an audience or fans.

Lyrics

Awaken the Explosions

Written By: City Serene

Watch the waves. Watch the waves escape me then come crashing down.
Let my thoughts let my thoughts be spoken out loud.
To hear the water, to hear the water breaking you must listen to the sound.
And the sand beneath your toes is al lyou have to know. Take a break, take your time to find…
So you can feel high, so you can feel high.
The galaxy is open to the world, see with your waking eyes.
Watch them explode. Watch them explode.
Wind carries, wind carries me beneath the stars to where you are.
See the nebula that burst into the black. I think I can reach, I think I can reach. Fade
with the beach in the evening.
Slowly but surely we begin drift and start to see the life that you wish to lead.
So you can feel high, so you can feel high.
The galaxy is open to the world, see with your waking eyes.
Watch them explode. Watch them explode.

So you can feel high, so you can feel high.
The galaxy is open to the world, see with your waking eyes.
Watch them explode. Watch them explode.
