Biography

I do the bulk of my work as a solo musician, including writing and recording all of my own original music, as well as a few choice covers. My live shows consist of myself, my guitar, and a mic. Most of the tracks on my forthcoming first full-length disc were done by me, in my home studio. I am fortunate indeed to have lived for the past 30 years at the edge of wilderness in the Jackson Hole Country of Wyoming, where the wilderness and abundant wildlife are a never ending source of inspiration.

Lyrics

Quantum

Written By: Kevin Roche

V#1.
The sands of time will not relent
The best revenge is time well spent
Wasted time on fear and greed
Won't give the heart what it really needs

Chorus
From a rocky speck in a sea of lights
In the beauty of a star filled night
A moments flash from a blinding light
So visible what's wrong what's right

V#2
Politicians and the preachers call
Talk show hosts and the pundits all
Cast their nets try to tip the scales With chameleon skin through clouded veils
Claim they've found some holy grail

V#3
They place the blame spread the alarm
Pretend to shield us from some harm
But the harm lies in the fear
Desperately try to pull us in
To fund their fears and help them win
There is nothing to win or loose

Bridge

Pierce the veil shed the skin
Find the crystal sight within
Within without it's all the same.
It's an ancient mind with a brand
new name Quantum

Chorus

Bridge

Down Any Open Road

Written By: Kevin Roche

V#1.
DOWN ANY OPEN ROAD FREEDOM CALLS BUT THERE’S A TOLL
FOR EACH NEW PLACE YOU FIND YA' LEAVE ONE BEHIND

WHEN THE PAST IS A HEAVY LOAD It's BETTER SOMETIMES TO JUST LET GO
RETHINK ALL THE THINGS YOU KNOW
AND MEET A BRAND NEW DAY

CHORUS:
I NEVER TOOK THE TIME JUST TO TURN AROUND AND LOOK BEHIND
LOCKED ON THE ROAD AHEAD AFRAID TO STOP AFRAID TO REST

V#2.
REACH THE FORK IN THE ROAD SO UNSURE WHICH WAY IS BEST
SOMETHINGS YA’ NEVER KNOW TIL YOU TAKE THE TEST

CHORUS:

INSTRUMENTAL:

OUTRO:
DOWN ANY OPEN ROAD FREEDOM CALLS BUT THERE’S A TOLL
FOR EACH NEW PLACE YOU FIND YA' LEAVE ONE BEHIND

The Question

Written By: Kevin Roche

THE QUESTION
V#1. Young man heads out on the highway.He's drivin' fast
Headin' into the future.
Just in front of the past

He says wants to find some answers
What's the reason why he asks
Some people shine like lightnin'
And others were born to crash

Chorus:
Everybody's lookin' for some answers
Tryin' to find that truth
Or to justify the means that their usin'
Just to pull em' through.

I think maybe we've got it backwards
I'll think you'll find it's true

Ask the right questions and the answers find you
It's the question that makes the answer true

V#2.
Young girl climbs the stairway. escape to her room
Sits down looks out the window.
Stares beyond the view

She dreams what her life will be like. When she goes there
Out past cold looks and comment
breaths fresh new air

Chorus:
