BandRockClassic Rock

Just think Alternative Rock with irresistible melodic hooks and integrating Classic Rock influences as if STP and Collective Soul were put in a blender with Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. What you get is a five-star production of technical skill and awe-inspiring performance! It's true ROCK EUPHORIA!

Biography

In today’s world of interchangeable bands with copy-cat styles, people are on the lookout for fresh and original music. They want songs with refrains that will echo in the mind, lyrics that aren’t taken from a teenager’s diary, and a vocalist with a distinct sound that becomes the band’s signature. In the past that was commonplace, but recently, formula has surpassed creativity. The prolific words of Sam Cooke declared “a change is gonna come.” It’s time for that change, and littleSUNDAY is at the forefront.

The Toronto area quartet’s lead vocals and rhythm guitar are mastered by frontman Rick Farrell. The rest of the band is comprised of JP handling lead guitar duties as well as backing vocals, Mario Stamegna on bass and backing vocals, and Eric Bonatti adding the drums and percussion to the mix. littleSUNDAY formed during the early part of the decade in a twist of fate that would rival what any fiction writer could create. By chance, Rick attended the show of a band that JP, Mario, and Eric were involved in, and the lead singer was in-absentia. Rather than cancel the appearance, the band requested someone to come on stage and help out, and Rick was the one that answered the call. The rest, as they say, is history.

The group has experimented with various genres, and in the end melded all of their influences into the radio-friendly alt-rock sound they possess today. It is one that will easily fit with Canadian artists that are popular today, as evidenced by their recent pairings with comparative acts such as Thornley, Default, Suzie McNeil, Edwin, Honeymoon Suite, See Spot Run, Jonas, and Econoline Crush. Make no mistake that littleSUNDAY is a strictly commercial band though, as their music brings something to the table for everyone: crunching guitar riffs and a solid drum attack for the rock purists, poignant lyrics to draw in the sentimentalists, and hooks that catch the attention of all those in between. Their tracks do not alienate nor exclude listeners. The band’s approach has become to create a common ground, and taking everything into consideration… mission accomplished.

Their discography is evidence of this. Day of Hollow, their 2003 release, reveals a harder edged flair, but as the band evolved, they dipped into the alt-pop scene on 2006’s Cross the Line. While both releases were regional successes and garnered industry attention, these talented musicians realized they needed to solidify their sound, merging the rock with the pop, and the result is a revitalized and innovative style sure to put this band on the map outside of their home base. One listen to tracks such as “It’s My Life” and “Too Late” from the "Wait For Tomorrow" album, exemplify this new direction, and it cannot be denied that this band has taken all of their collective experience and grown into a force to be reckoned with inside the musical arena.

The last few years have brought much positive progress. in 2007 littleSUNDAY released their CD "Wait For Tomorrow" across Canada, with the title track serviced to major stations throughout the country. Prior to that, they worked with Yahoo! Music Canada, and in 2008 signed a one year distribution deal in Canada. 2008 also saw the band included in appearances such as the Burlington Sound of Music Festival, the Beaches Festival in Port Colborne, Toronto IndieWeek, and the Cravefest Film Festival. Adding to the littleSUNDAY advancement was an endorsement by Carparelli Guitars, a company noted for their stellar workmanship and their crafting of some of the finest musical instruments. There is no doubt that their burgeoning success will shatter stereotypes and increase their already growing fan base.

The accolades they’ve received already are proof positive that they deserve more than just casual consideration. From inclusion on numerous compilation CDs, rotation airplay on various radio stations, endorsements by highly respected instrument companies, and a distribution deal, it is readily apparent that people are taking notice. Is littleSUNDAY the “next big thing”? Some questions in life are tough to answer, but this one is easy – unequivocally yes!

In April 2009 littleSUNDAY has unleashed a new 7-song EP titled, "Let it All Out!". It's a stimulating collection of full-out rock-and-roll tunes, tightly wrapped in pure attitude and raw musical power! Be sure to check it out.

So the question of the year is, "Are you Ready for the Big Show?"

Lyrics

IN THE END

Written By: littleSUNDAY

It's not the way that you look
Inside my head
It's not the way that you
Love me
It's not a feeling of sorrow
I regret
Too many faces around here.

Leave it alone,
Don't leave me alone
I pick up the phone
No answer
Happy to lend
No need to pretend
I see it all before me

[CH]
All I wanted was you
All I needed was myself
How we became unglued
Couldn't find out
In the end.

I can't remember the thoughts
Inside my head
I can't believe that
I'm trying
Inside a world that is much
Too hard to lend
This conversation
Is dying

LEAVE

Written By: littleSUNDAY

You take it,
You know it’s free
The feeling,
Coming back to me
I tell you,
You can’t decide
The feeling,
Coming back to life

I’ll ask myself again,
Is this what I’m feeling?
I'll ask myself again,
Will I go away.

The countries,
Are paralyzed
You showed me,
What you fantasize
You shake it,
Like a jar of flies
The feeling,
Coming back to life

I’ll ask myself again,
Is this what I’m feeling?
I ask myself again.

[CH]
You take it!!
It’s not all right to leave
You feel it!!
It’s not all right to leave
You take it!!
It’s not all right to leave
You feel it!!!

So salty,
The words you speak
My fault we,
Couldn’t last the week
I failed you,
You failed yourself
Impale me,
Put me on your shelf!!

Just shoot me!!
Cause it’s for the best
Just joking!
But you know the rest
I'll change you,
The suicide
The feeling,
Coming back to life

I’ll ask myself again,
Is this what I’m feeling?
I ask myself again.

[CH]
You take it!!
It’s not all right to leave
You feel it!!
It’s not all right to leave
You take it!!
It’s not all right to leave
You feel it!!!
It’s not alright to leave!!!!!!!

CROSS THE LINE

Written By: littleSUNDAY

I don’t know why I’m here
But you got me down on my knees
Wake me up in the morning
Cause it’s the greatest gift from you to me

I can’t wait anymore,
I've got nowhere to hide
Like a bug on the floor
You find the smallest, crack to hide!!

[CH] Doesn’t anybody see the middle?
Doesn’t anybody cross that line?
Doesn’t anybody see the middle?
Doesn’t anybody cross that line?

When there’s no where to go,
And there’s no one to believe in
And if we take it too slow,
Will they ever want to change my ways?

You keep tellin me there’s a problem
You keep tellin me it’s a lie
You say there is no tomorrow,
But maybe there is only today!

I can’t wait anymore,
I've got nowhere to hide
Like a bug on the floor
You find the smallest, crack to hide!

[CH] Doesn’t anybody see the middle?
Doesn’t anybody cross that line?
Doesn’t anybody see the middle?
Doesn’t anybody cross that line?

TOO LATE

Written By: littleSUNDAY


Intoxication, seems to be our only freedom
We drink the days away,
Until we're higher than the sun

And you say,
that truth will never prevail
And you lie,
between the pages familiar faces decay

I've tried to make that change
And I will try to make it again
It's hard to swallow...
Here we go again

It's never too late . It's never to hard (all)
It's never too late. When we fall apart
It's never too late. To fight the hunger
And break the cycle again

I close my eyes and drift into whatever
I can't hold on cause
I can't find my way back home... again

I've tried to make that change
And I will try to make it again
It's hard to swallow
And here we go again

It's never too late. It's never to hard
It's never too late. When we fall apart
It's never too late. To fight the hunger
And break the cycle again

WAIT FOR TOMORROW

Written By: LITTLESUNDAY

I asked you to leave me
You asked me to dance
I told you no way
That you had no chance
I wanted to live
You wanted to cry
Start over again
And that's a lie
You wanted to be someone
I can't fake it. I can't see you again

(C)
Can't wait for tomorrow
And this sense of sorrow
You're bringing me down
Can't keep you around
Can't wait for tomorrow
Wait for tomorrow
You're bringing me down
Can't go there with you

If I grow old
You'll tell me to dream
I'll ask you to pray
It's all make believe
Let's throw it all away
Don't want to imagine
The words that you speak
I feel so awake
When I'm not missing you
So hard to escape ... Your prison cell
can't fake it. I can't see you again

(C)
Can't wait for tomorrow
And this sense of sorrow
You're bringing me down
Can't keep you around
Can't wait for tomorrow
Wait for tomorrow
You're bringing me down
Can't go there with you

SUPERSTAR

Written By: LITTLESUNDAY

Imagination is hard to Kill
(And) Inspiration is better still
Resolution: the day will come
It's all or nothing: that's what they tell us all.

You only wanted to feel
Like a Superstar

Make it happen, and you will change
See tomorrow as a brighter day
Give it all that you, have to give
Because we only have, this one life to live

You only wanted to feel
Like a Superstar

(B)
Fuel the fire inside us
It's the power of choices
Take one step back and then go
Cast your fear out the window

It's up to you to believe

(B2)
Hold on to your dream
It's up to you to believe
You're a Su-per-star!!!!

solo

(C)
You only wanted to feel
You only wanted to feel
It's up to you to believe like a Superstar

SOMETHING ABOUT YOU

Written By: LITTLESUNDAY

One more look in your eyes,
Makes me want to see, how we've faded
And if you open those eyes,
You don't want to see, that I'm jaded
Help you reveal in yourself
That we can believe in ourselves
I've got this feelin that......
All I've got to say is:

This is good morning to you,
Don't want to be that drained
There is something about you
I can't explain

I donÕt want to be sombre and blind
Cause you don't want to look me in the eye
I'll tell you something bad - no more running away.
Help you reveal in yourself
That we can believe in ourselves
If opposites collide:
We ain't going no where

We've got something special inside our lives
there is only one thing left to say:
Together we can make that change
And all I want to say is:

This is good morning to you,
Don't want to be that drained
There is something about you
I can't explain

(solo) / (Break down)

C
This is good morning to you,
Don't want to be that drained
There is something about you yeah!!!!!

ONLY HUMAN

Written By: LITTLESUNDAY

There is a time when I wanted to feel
All the things that we lived
But the chain was so hard to release
Got me locked out the front door
I might as well have myself to believe
That you you can be so cold
But you bring out the human in me...

I don't want to be . Another face inside the crowd
I just want see . I've got my head between my legs
And I'm not feeling'

And I tell you I wanted to die
But you hate my intension
And I said I would eat you alive
This is my resurrection
I might as well have myself to believe
That you you can be so cold
But you bring out the human in me...

And you changed your direction
And you spread your intections

I don't want to be . Another face inside the crowd
I just want see . I've got my head between my legs
And I'm not feeling'

I don't want to be
Another face inside the crowd
I've got my head between my legs
And I'm not feeling' very proud..

I don't want to be
Another face inside the crowd
I've got my head between my legs
And I ain't feeling' very proud..
I don't want to be
Another face inside the crowd
I've got my head, I've got my head
Between my legs

(Only Human) .Between my legs
Between my leg

LET IT GO (2009)

Written By: LITTLESUNDAY

I’ve been workin all the way to the top.
I had my eyes to be the cream of the crop, yeah.
Night falls and like a chemical chain,
I hit my head down on the gutter again.

It’s tonight, it’s today,
It’s the same old song and dance.
Get it right, take a chance,
Get this party started!

Hey babe
Are you ready for the ‘BIG SHOW’?
Got to rock
It’s the only way to roll!
Last call
Is a quarter past day light!
We got to let it go!

Wakin' up
With my old whiskey in hand.
You turn me over
Like a bucket of sand.
Wake me up
Because I’m ready to roll
I found my rock,
And now I’m out of control.

It’s tonight, it’s today,
It’s the same old song and dance.
Get it right, take a chance,..

Hey babe
Are you ready for the ‘BIG SHOW’?
Got to rock
It’s the only way to roll!
Last call
Is a quarter past day light!
We got to let it go!

(solo)

Hey babe
Are you ready for the ‘BIG SHOW’?
Got to rock
It’s the only way to roll!
Last call
Is a quarter past day light!
We got to let it go!

GOOD TO BE HOME (2009)

Written By: LITTLESUNDAY

V1)
Hey my, I’m on that country road
I wanna know will you forget me when I go.
Under, the cover of the night
We put away the wrong, and celebrate the right.. yeah!

(V2)
And so, you lay my cloths to dry
White sheets remind me of good lovin’ and good ---
And so, that country road awaits
I say goodbye for now, I'll be back another day.

(PC)
We travel for fame and fortune
You stay at home and cry up a storm
Soon after you realize nothing
Don't you worry 'cause we won't be gone too long ...

(C)
Yeah... It's so good to be home
Yeah... It's so good to be home ..
To be home..

(solo)

Another reason why I____ have___ to___ go____ again ......

Yeah... It's so good to be home
To be home .. yeah!
