Jetstream

BandRock

A band of teenagers from So. Cal. have picked up the torch that has been handed down by some of the best rockers of the 70’s. Jetstream combines the experimental nature of bands like Rush, Yes, and Led Zeppelin with a 21st century outlook full of angst, love and irony.

Biography

We have only been together for about 2 years now and we have just recently signed with RCA. Here is a short break down on us..
Garrett Zeile (15) plays guitar, sings lead vocals and writes most of the music and lyrics for Jetstream. Although, he’s the son of an ex-Major League ballplayer and an Olympic Gold Medal Gymnast, Garrett has always felt a connection to music above all. It may or may not be a coincidence that he shares a birthday with his idol, Jimi Hendrix.

Kevin Seven (14) shares back-vocals while playing an energetic bass guitar. Unlike his bandmates, Kevin is a second generation rocker. His father, John Grimmett, was the bassist for 80’s hair-metal outfit, Black Bambi. In addition, long time friend, Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue), is more than forthcoming with hand-me-downs to the budding Jetstream star. Outside of his musical pursuits, Kevin is something of a Renaissance Man (by California standards, at least) who enjoys surfing, motocross racing and baseball in addition to jamming with his bandmates.

Ben Zelico (15) is Jetstream’s show-stopping drummer, whose skill and showmanship have made him a fan favorite. Although he is able to play just about any song, Ben is most inspired by the less rigid music of Rush and Dream Theater, which gives him free reign to his own creative impulses. Also the resident clown, Ben is constantly coming up with unique ways to make his bandmates laugh and keep them loose. Ben endorses Zildjian Cymbals and DW Drums

Hold On

Written By: JetStream

Hold On
Written/performed by JetStream
Verse 1
Tossing and turning
My head is humming with a blues
I turned my back on you
I lie awake at night
Thinking thoughts that I can't choose

Chorus
And I hate myself for many things
But with you I'm finally free
You came to me when no one cared,
Helped me to believe.
Telling me Hold On
Help is on the way
But I don't want to feel this way again

Verse 2
I can't control myself
I just need something to believe
Or maybe someone else
Please take all my regrets
And help my eyes to see what's in front of me

Bittersweet Illusion
by JetStream
Verse 1
Close your eyes
Feel the light slip away
As you fall through the skies
In this strange fantasy

Let it go
Just let it go
No one needs to know

Pre Chorus
Trapped in my endless thoughts
Say goodnight to reality
I'm fighting back
But it's pulling me away

Chorus
My Bittersweet Illusion
My Bittersweet Illusion
This Land of Confusion
My Bittersweet Illusion

Verse 2
Close your eyes
Think of all the things that haunt you
Bring them all to life
It's everything you'll ever need

Pre Chorus
Chorus

Runaway Train

Written By: Jetstream

Runaway Train
by JetStream
Verse 1
Everybody's just hanging around
I'm trying to bring our dreams to life
You know I need a break sometimes
Know that I got my own trials

And we all want the glory
But some don't want to sacrifice
And you don't want me
To hear my own advice

Chorus
When I say go
It's as cheap as the runaway train
And I say go
It's as easy as running away

Verse 1
Just know that your only wasting your time
With those secrets that you hide
But I start to feel dependent
Once your plan works out just right

You take the words of another
And twist them to your delight
And you don't want me
To hear my own advice

Chorus

Industry of Cool

Written By: by JetStream

Fame
This game we call fame
Is made up of lies

Let's play
Your little game
While inside we're dying

Come and save my soul
My heart is hiding from the Industry of Cool

They preach
They preach to me
With no expression in their eyes

This scene
This lovely scene
Is fabricated style

So Come and save my soul
My heart is hiding from the Industry of Cool
The future once looked bright
But now it's fallen to the Industry of Cool
And I'll be damned if I don't find another
Cause I feel trapped in the middle of someone else's head

When I hear a melody my friend
I'm gonna ride it till the end
It don't matter who said what's been said
I'm gonna pound it in your hea

On and On

Written By: by JetStream

These people try to get inside my head
Sometimes I think they'd rather see me dead
Should I get up and walk away?
A failure's not what I set out to be

On and On
On and On
On and On
It's the little things that get me through the day

Is there something wrong if I feel fine
Seems I should be scared out of my mind
When the useless parts of songs are the parts you like
I guess it's time to hand over the mike

And on my way there will be sorrow
And on my way I'll feel regret
But I won't let go of who and what I love
I hope you join me on my way

Halfway to Happiness

Written By: by JetStream

You could search a thousand hours
And never find out what to do
It's a curse that God has placed upon you
The suspense of never knowing if you'll ever be any good

Maybe sometimes doing the right thing
Isn't doing what feels good

I'm living Halfway, Halfway, Halfway to Happiness

Well I've been having trouble falling asleep at night
It's this kind of shit that makes me wonder if I'll be alright
I can taste it in the air
It tastes like something rare

Am I halfway to happiness
Or am I already there
