Enter The Piano Dragon

"Something is brewing, and I think that's Lenny's Career on the horizon waiting to rise!" ~ Jessica Bishop, Publicist

Lenny Revell's musical roots started in Buffalo, NY where at the age of nine, he started piano lessons. At sixteen he wrote his first song, and at nineteen, started singing lessons. He began playing various piano recitals in nursing homes, churches, and institutions in the wny area. In his late teens, he started playing Lewiston Art Fest in Western New York for many years as well as the Canal Fest of the Tonawandas, NY for the past two years where he was brandished as the "next Elton John". Many other cities followed with appearances in Branson, MO, and a tv appearance in Nashville, TN, and opening up a model show in Toronto, as well as many of the more popular piano bars and clubs in the NYC circuit including "Don't Tell Mamas", "Rosa's Turn", George Keeley's, The Duplex, and many more. He has also acted in two operas within the Greater Buffalo Opera Company under world renowned opera director Gary Burgess: Carmen and The Flying Dutchman, and modeled for Rova in NYC. Lenny's discovery of Elton John was at the age of eighteen, and the turning point of his life. Now with a focal point to shoot for, he devoted his energies to writing piano rock songs influenced by Elton's signature style. More artist's influences started to come to the forefront: The Beatles, Billy Joel, Ben Folds, Vanessa Carlton, Tori Amos, Coldplay, etc. Now with a new album entitled 'Lessons', Lenny plans to unveil a new charasmatic performer in the singer-songwriter genre of rock.

Lyrics

Who Am I?

Written By: Lenny Revell

Dreaming about what could be mine
This red-haired girl I've loved my whole life
And it screams, this radio-active blood inside
As I swing through the canyons of Manhattan tonight
If you could just see me the way I am
Fate placed a gift and curse in my hands
I'm obliged by responsibility
For the power I hold inside of me

Who am I? Who am I?
You could never understand
Who am I? Who am I?
An arachnid Peter Pan
Fighting the forces of evil every day I can
Who am I? Who am I?
I am Spider-Man

Holding back the tears I have shed
Keeping the guilt I alone have been fed
My best friend's father has long been dead
And my girlfriend Mary Jane was almost wed
Yet still I force myself to fight
For the good, and the brotherhood of mankind
If you could live my life for one day
My power would just sweep you away

Who am I? Who am I?
You could never understand
Who am I? Who am I?
An arachnid Peter Pan
Fighting the forces of evil every day I can
Who am I? Who am I?
I am Spider-Man

Change

Written By: Lenny Revell

Everybody's gone
And you're all alone
Your friends haven't rang
For so long
But inside you hold a song
That keeps you strong
Oh, what could this mean now honey?
People can be self-absorbed
You walk down the path that seems
To deny you the happiness that you long for

And I never, ever look back anymore
And I see a future you can't ignore
And I know this will all come and go
'Cause the one thing that never changes is change

In life you walk alone
'Cause friends come and go
But don't be afraid
When the time finally comes
And change is in the air
And the rebirth of life is here
Oh can you just feel it now honey?
The arrival of love so sweet
And I believe in second chances
You're never beaten
Unless you've accepted defeat

Where are we going?
What do you see?
A mirror that reflects self-honesty
Life can be hard, life can be cold
But it's from the struggle that our real life unfolds

Prelude/Revenge Of Little Red Riding Hood

Written By: Lenny Revell

Deep within the very woods
Deep within her very sleep
Grandma awaits the deadliest heartbeat
Frightened for her very life
She expects her death tonight
Excape seems nothing but a beacon of light
Now taking back her soul
She has no chance against the foe
Only when time escapes its run
Then this terror will be second to none

Revenge of Little Red Riding Hood
She holds true to what no one could
And she stands, even to this day
Taking out the wolf that gobbled her grandma away

With a snarl that creeps like fear
And a breathing still grows near
The big bad wolf cometh forth is near
Within moments grandma's gone
He takes her place singing a song
As Riding Hood approaches and senses nothing's wrong
If grandma could've only known
She'd be chewed to the very last bone
She would have had her only grandmother there
To save her from this nightmare

Revenge of Little Red Riding Hood
She holds true to what no one could
As she stands, even to this day
Taking out the wolf that gobbled her grandma away

Now taking back her soul
She has no chance against the foe
Even when time escapes this run
And its terror will be second to none

Revenge of Little Red Riding Hood
She holds true to what no one could
As she stands, even to this day
Taking out the wolf that gobbled her grandma away

Ghost

Written By: Lenny Revell

Oh look at me, I jumped off a roof!
Hit the ground hard, now I'm aloof
It's pleasure and it's pain, my life seemed in vain
Whatcha do for one column of fame
An attention starved psycho's game!
I'm at the hospital and hope looks grim
Doctor's fight to save only what could have been
Family and friends show up and I do too
The doc says "nothing more we can do
My heart goes out to all of you"
And no one can see me the way
That you see me everyday
An invisible entity with undeniable propensity
For what I only do best....I'm your ghost!
Days have rolled on since I've been dead
I'm free from this earth, my body's been shed
Halloween was always my holiday
I always thought of death as "come what may"
But who would have thought about facing that day?
I come at times when you least expect
I haunt your dreams without a permit
I'm your company when no one's around
I dance without feet and sing without sound
Where I am there's no lost and found
Once a man, now a phantom. Tried to hide my pain deep inside
Thought that death was the only answer left
Now it's too late, suicide's my fate
You lock the door at night but I still get in
You try holy water, then I take a swim
You call the Ghostbusters, but they're in a jam
They're stuck fighting Stay Puff Marshmellow Man
And Slimer's at home stuck on the can
I'm always there for you, no excuses no lies
With no relationship you bet I've got the time
You look for me when you go out at night
I pass through walls just like you pass through lives
You're Dr. Jeckyll to my Mr. Hyde
