Biography

Hello folks, and welcome to that necessary evil we call THE BIO. Necessary, because if you are reading this, you probably are unfamiliar with me and my music. Evil, because most of the time these things are terribly inaccurate. They are usually chock full of self-serving b.s., coupled with some description of the band that reflects what they wish they sounded like as opposed to what they actually sound like. They are littered with such things as, "a combination of led zeppelin, ac/dc, and the beatles, with a touch of nirvana, and the rolling stones!", or "if black Sabbath and pearl jam conceived a child while listening to neil young, this is what it would sound like". Anyway, you get the picture. So with that in mind, I will try to keep this short and simple. My name is jonathan bright, I live in Nashville, and have been playing music with various bands my whole life. I started out on the drums, moved on to the guitar, then dabbled on bass and keyboards. After a few semi-successful runs in a few bands, I decided it was time for the "solo project". I figured, what the hell, I will just play and sing everything myself, then I will have nobody to blame if it sucks. I maxed out the credit cards, booked some time with producer jay joyce, loaded up my drums and guitars, and began recording like a man possessed (or, more accurately, like a man who is on the clock). That brings us to the present. I am putting the finishing touches on the new c.d., and have put together a great new band to help me bring it to the masses. My music has been compared to anyone from cheap trick to the foo fighters, to steve miller, and I suppose that is good enough for me. Somewhere along the way, we have managed to become a damn good (dare i say great? i think i shall) live band, and are ready to conquer the world (or at least the southeast, for now). Like the great philosopher Brian Johnson once said, for those about to rock, we salute you. Jonathan Bright

Lyrics

run

Written By: jonathan bright

trying to pick up all the pieces
trying to collect all the reasons
if i could get by
i bet you i could get inside
or your little head and change your mind
where do we run to?
i hear the sugars sweet in your kitchen
so i'm trying to find a whole it will fit in
if you will be brave
me and you can sail away
it's to late to change your mind
where do we run to?
our heads are getting taller,
and we're slowly slipping away
the earth is getting smaller
the blue skies have taken the grey away
we're high and we're on top of the world now
where do we run to
