Jeriko

BandRockPop

Jeriko brings a sweet anger to her catchy pop/rock style. Not only are the melodies haunting but the lyrics are done with sass and a certain kind of sneer that makes you fall in love with her Strong Island style.

Biography

Jeriko comes out of Los Angeles, California with her own edge to Pop/Rock.
This native New Yorker was surrounded by a family of musicians.
Performing and training started at the early age of three.
After graduation, Jeriko was signed to Crave/Sony and received her first Gold Single.

Realizing that this wasn't the type of music that best represented her and having much admiration for the music coming from Europe, Jeriko's ambition took her on an extended writing trip to Europe/Sweden.
That's where she met the Swedish brother team The K-Bros for the first time.
Over the next 2 1/2 years, Jeriko and The K-Bros worked around the clock to create an album that would stand up to all of their expectations and taste.

Her sound is a lethal combination of riff- oriented 70's Rock-n-Roll, driven by in your face melodies, and lyrics that are done with a witty smile.
There is a genuine energy to her music.

Jeriko has just released a 5 song EP on iTunes and will also be releasing a full length album in the fall.
The hit single "From Me To You" has already been added to numerous radio stations and is picking up steam.
MTV has also licensed the entire album for their catalogue of shows.
It's really only a matter of time before we see Jeriko in the mainstream of things.

Lyrics

Happy

Written By: M.Karlegard/A.Karlegard/J.Hartman

Wasting all my time when I should know better
Trying to drive the wrong way up a one way street
You blew me off just like I was a feather
When you put it all together you're hard to please
If I knew then what I know now
Didn't suit your friends then I found out

And maybe I was born a loser
And maybe you don't want me
But all I ever tried to do was make you happy (happy)
Now I'm gonna lose you
But that's okay by me
Coz all I ever wanted to do, was make you happy (happy)

Baby why'd you have to be so wicked
Telling all these lies trying to look so sweet
So excuse me if I smile but you ain't no rebel
Ain't you just too cool for someone like me

If I knew then what I know now
Telling all your friends but they found you out

Maybe I was born a loser
And maybe you don't want me
But all I ever tried to do was make you happy (happy)
Now I'm gonna lose you
But that's okay by me
Coz all I ever wanted to do, was make you happy (happy)

No use crying for you, you're built to break
Just one big mistake

From Me To You

Written By: J.Siebert/M.Karlegard/A.Karlegard

Daddy's little girl has got a brand new gig
Get a monster dude to produce her
And maybe she'll be great
Dress her up and make her sing lalala
She'll make it big
Note to self, drop names
hey, that's good, I gotta remember

Be yourself, be unnatural, thanks for all the good times

This is from me to you I think you suck
And if it was up to me I'd pull the plug and say enough
This is from me to you it must be tough you little slut
And I'm sure you really sweet and all
But you just fit the part too much for me to shut up

21st century Lita Ford
Just what we wanted
Thank you very much, now we can all lean back
And really enjoy it
Take a cheer leader girl and
make her dress real hard to fit the part
Note to self, make sure
you can lip-sync for more than 3 minutes

Be yourself, be uncomfortable
Thanks for all the good times

This is from me to you I think you suck
And if it was up to me I'd pull the plug on all your stuff
This is from me to you it must be tough you little fuck
And I'm sure you really sweet and all
But you just fit the part too much for me to shut up

Maybe you're not just a wannabe
maybe it's true
Bottom line is you make it harder
From me to you it's true

Winter's Rain

Written By: J.Siebert/M.Karlegard/A.Karlegard

You want to tell your story another way
It's not important, you don't have to explain
I've always known the ending, I read the page
It won't make any difference what you say

Now I feel tired but happy all the same
I think I'm gonna be OK

Come on my little winter's rain
Keep drumming on my window pane
Come on my little winter's rain
Today's the day I, I get a new tomorrow
Come on my little winter's rain
Just watching you will keep me sane
Come on my little winter's rain
Today's the day I, I get a new tomorrow

I never said it's easy to break away
But I decided that I couldn't stay
Just one mistake to many, made my love fade
You broke the rules with all the games you played

Now I feel tired but happy all the same
I think I'm gonna be OK

Come on my little winter's rain
Keep drumming on my window pane
Come on my little winter's rain
Today's the day I, I get a new tomorrow
Come on my little winter's rain
Just watching you will keep me sane
Come on my little winter's rain
Today's the day I, I get a new tomorrow

I'll take a chance, and all the rest will follow
I'll make some plans if I have to beg or borrow
And our last dance will be a goodbye to romance
I'll get a new tomorrow

Come on my little winter's rain
Keep drumming on my window pane
Come on my little winter's rain
Today's the day I, I get a new tomorrow
Come on my little winter's rain
Just watching you will keep me sane
Come on my little winter's rain
Today's the day I, I get a new tomorrow

All Thumbs Up

Written By: Martin Karlegard, Andreas Karlegard, Jacqueline Siebert

ALL THUMBS UP

I think you'd better stop
I think you might have hit the sweet spot
yeah, it surprised me a lot
That sort of thing just blows my head off

Hey, are we all thumbs up
Did we hit it off, now can I get on top
Hey, are we all thumbs up
Did we get what's what and what not

I knew it right from the start
Boy, you struggle and you ain't very smart
But, you've got a lot of heart
You might wanna keep those two things apart

Hey, are we all thumbs up
Did we hit it off, now can I get on top
Hey, are we all thumbs up
Did we get what's what and what not

Getting good and wasted
Mama feeling her best
Tie you up with my laces
Check out what's under the hood, yeah

Hey, are we all thumbs up
Did we hit it off, now can I get on top
Hey, are we all thumbs up
Did we get what's what and what not

Just Like Me

Written By: J.Siebert/A.Karlegard/M.Karlegard

Trippin' down the stairs and I find my way out of your place
and now I better get cool about you being a fool
Slip into the morning traffic rushing by wondering why the hell
my dude just burst into flames. I think I'm going insane

Different story all the same
Messing with the things I said I'd never touch again

Well ain't it just like me
Flirting with disaster and always falling in to deep
Way to go
Well ain't it just like me
Playing with the wrong kind the opposite of what I really need
well, way to go and ain't it just like me

Erase, delete, rewind and draw a big fat line I'm crossing out your heart
This baby really don't like to sit on the passenger side

Same old story different name
Messing with the things I said I'd never touch again

Well ain't it just like me
Flirting with disaster and always falling in to deep
Way to go
Well ain't it just like me
Playing with the wrong kind the opposite of what I really need
well, way to go and ain't it just like me

Stop and check myself it ain't nothing new
Mama's little boy made this baby turn blue
I think I'll pass on you

Well ain't it just like me
Flirting with disaster and always falling in to deep
Way to go
Well ain't it just like me
Playing with the wrong kind the opposite of what I really need
well, way to go and ain't it just like me

Time With a Friend

Written By: J.Siebert/M.Karlegard/A.Karlegard

Star baby star
You're a star when it comes to living hard
and I can see it in your eyes
You've got a soul full of stories you won't tell
Far baby far
You've come far but now your smile covers your heart
it makes me wonder who you are
I know you're hurt but only you can live to tell
well, well
Don't you ever freak out on me now
Don't you ever dare run away
Time well spent is time with a friend
I hope things never ever change
Time well spent is time with a friend
Cause I'm not alone
And I thank you so
Cause time well spent is time with you my friend
Time well spent is time with a friend like you

Try baby try
You gotta try there's no reason to deny
You're torn up and broken too
and here you are saying girl what should I do
Hey hey
Don't you ever freak out and leave now
Don't you ever dare go away
Time well spent is time with a friend
I hope things never ever change
Time well spent is time with a friend
Cause I'm not alone
And I thank you so
Cause time well spent is time with you my friend
Time well spent is time with a friend like you

relax you don't have to pretend
Take a day off spend time with a friend
Tomorrow you can start again
Tomorrow you can start again yeah
