BandPopJam

A cerebral mix of smartly written songs, and the proven ability to pull them off. Fun, hook-filled songwriting. Jam-band/art-rock/pop with a twist.

Biography

Leisure Scream unites three Boston-based musicians and singer-songwriters: cabaret performer Nancy Lancy, roots rocker John Daly, and glam pop artist Johnny Saco. This fertile collaboration of varied musical styles has given birth to an infectious and alluring sound influenced by a wide range of bands from Talking Heads to Jefferson Airplane to The Grateful Dead.

Lyrics

Coyote Red

Written By: John Daly

Coyote Red
You take from me when I turn my head
Coyote Red
Was it worth the price of a friend?
You'll never know what you took when you left
I'll catch up with you before I am dead
Coyote Red

Coyote Red
There's something wild in the air tonight
Coyote Red
This could be a chance to set things right
Last time I saw you the sun was going down
In the moonlight you're nowhere to be found
Coyote Red

When you lay your head down
Alone in your bed
I'll catch up with you in the moonlight
You sleep all day and howl at night
Coyote Red

Coyote Red
Alone again, can we be the same?
Coyote Red
I reckon I should saddle up again

It's no secret that you'll flee the scene
You leave your footprints for me to see
Coyote Red

When you lay your head down
Alone in your bed
I'll catch up with you in the moonlight
You sleep all day and run at night
Coyote Red

Color of Danger

Written By: John Daly

If you think you're going to be safe
it's unspeakable to fathom a worse place
Color codes of green and blue
provide a way to get to you
Open up your eyes to the color of danger
Code Red applies to harmony and nature
Fat boys eating apple pie
Stick a needle in your eye

If you think you're going to be safe
it's impossible to fathom what's on your face
Can't understand what they say
It seems the words get in the way

Open up your eyes to the color of danger
Code Red applies to harmony and nature
Can't beat the power of money in the basket at church on Sunday

Black box in your mouth
What you say will go south

Open up your eyes to the color of danger
Code Red applies to harmony and nature
Hundred million here or there
It don't matter to a billionaire

Harmony and nature...

Set List

Very entertaining and engaging live show. Two 45-min sets of original material performed by three vocalists (2 males/1 female) each taking turns as the lead vocalist with the other two contributing harmonies. Some songs all 3 vocalists 'share' lead. Music is generally up-tempo/rockin' with a smattering of relaxed 'ballad' style tunes. General influences are roots rock, art rock, jam and country alt. Some political/folk context lyrically.
