Biography

Maybe If you Hit it founding members, Barton Hill and Scott Lawson are originally from Houston, Texas. Their shared musical interests growing up, aligned them in several bands
as they began their musical careers in the area. The first and most notable band “Enfant”
released the single "Can You Imagine," which saw airtime on the local Clear Channel Station,
94.5 FM “The Buzz”. Eventually, the band members parted ways, and Barton and Scott
decided to move to Florida where they achieved their degrees in Recording Arts at Full Sail
University.

While attending Full Sail, Hill was instrumental in forming what became a well known Central
Florida Pop/Rock band “Heroes Of The Storm,” which Lawson later joined to play bass. “Heroes
of The Storm” also found airtime on the Central Florida Clear Channel station, 101.1 FM WJRR
with "Crash and Burn.” After two successful years of performing regionally, band chemistry
issues resulted in the split of the band, which was the catalyst that sparked the idea for what
is not only “Maybe If You Hit It” but the concept of branding the band prior to touring,
through the creation of it’s interactive website, videos, high-end photography, merchandizing,
and their eventual release of their first EP.

With this branding idea in front of them, Hill and Lawson began writing what is now the Texas
Swagger EP. With Lawson back in his rightful place behind the drums, Hill fronting with vocals
and guitars, the final piece of the puzzle was the need for a killer bassist and showman to
complete the lineup. Hill turned to a local musician, aptly named "The Garrett Show." Garrett
Jankowski had been very successful in the Central Florida area and beyond, with his band,
Irrational. Irrational had played shows in the area for upwards of ten years performing at Hard
Rock Live (2006), Earthday Birthday 16 (2008), Florida Music Festival (2009), and House Of
Blues (2010). In 2009, Irrational beat out 8,000 bands nationally in the Guitar Center - Motley
Crue “Make Rock History Contest” and was flown out to L.A. to compete in the finals for a spot
to play on Motely Crue's Cruefest. Irrational placed 7th overall in the competition. Irrational
also won the best hard rock album award at the 2005 Florida music awards. After a very
successful career, a series of unfortunate events lead to Irrational’s break up. Hill had met
Garrett at a couple of his shows and was impressed by his stage presence and overall
performance in the band. Hill quickly approached Garrett with the concept of “Maybe If You
Hit It,” and after the first rehearsal with the whole group, it was clear that The Garrett Show
was the perfect fit for the band, and thus “Maybe If You Hit It" was born.

It was the combined experience in the industry of the band members that made “Maybe If
You Hit It” decide to alter their approach when jump-starting this new band. The guys
wanted to come out with a bang! Instead of getting together a decent set list and playing
shows, the guys decided to assemble all the necessary pieces to brand the band and create an
attitude that they feel appeals to their current and future fan base. This included investing
thousands of self-financed dollars into getting all the necessary music, marketing materials,
and promotional items together before they even stepped on stage for their first public
appearance. Professional photos of the band and their first EP cover were shot by Brook Pifer.
Professional recording/production was contracted through Brett Hestla of Dark New Day, who
had spent time touring with Creed as their bass player. Brett had previously produced hits for
Framing Hanley, Tantric, and The Supervillians. Creative, informative, and visually stimulating
video content was shot and edited by Brennan Booth at Lucky Break Media who continues to
follow the band adding current video content to their web site. Another asset created for the
band was the eye-catching and interactive website, created by Justin of The Antimatter
Studio. Unique and quality merchandise was designed, along with the addition of the “Maybe
If you Hit It” girls. These “MIYHI” girls are involved in many theatrical events with the band
during live shows, operate the merchandise table, and distribute promotional items to concert
goers. The band was recently interviewed on Orlando’s Clear Channel radio station, 101.1
FM’s WJRR’s Native Noise, where they officially released their first single, "Texas Swagger.”

Maybe If You Hit It is currently working on finishing up their full length album with producer Brett Hestla, shooting music videos, and gearing up for an intense show schedule in the
coming months. Put your drinking shoes on and head out for the night of your life with Maybe If You Hit It!!!

Lyrics

Done With You

Written By: Maybe If You Hit It

Lying awake, it's 3 am... you're beside me, I'm alone
I've been dyin' to tell you how I feel
When the sun comes up baby I'm gone
Tell me why is it so hard to let you down
When I knew it all along
We gotta move on... I'm movin' on, so long

And time comes crashing down, no I can't fight the waves
'Cause it's more than I can fake... when you're the one who's
Wastin' my time... you're on the attack
You keep draggin' it out and holdin' me back
And all I know.. is that I'm done with... done with you

I'm done with you... oh

Phone call rings from the hospital
And she tells me that she's changed
She's askin' me the impossible
'Cause she's beggin' me to stay
I'm already gone, this roller-coaster is a
Ride I cannot take
You can ride it by yourself
Destroying someone else
Oh no

And time comes crashing down, no I can't fight the waves
'Cause it's more than I can fake... when you're the one who's
Wastin' my time... you're on the attack
You keep draggin' it out and holdin' me back
And all I know.. is that I'm done with... I'm done with you

And time comes crashing down, no I can't fight the waves
'Cause it's more than I can... I can't take it when you're
Wastin' my time... you're on the attack
You keep draggin' it out and holdin' me back
And all I know.. is that I'm done with you

Done with you

And time comes crashing down, no I can't fight the waves
'Cause it's more than I can fake... when you're the one who's
Wastin' my time... you're on the attack
You keep draggin' it out and holdin' me back
And all I know.. is that I'm done with... done with you

Yes Ladies, I'm Single...

Written By: Maybe If You Hit It

Yes Tonight I’m on the prowl,
I gotta get me some somehow.
I just need a beautiful girl or two or three.
So come on baby bring your friends and lets have a good time,
I can see what’s on your mind,
And if you let me in, I promise I won’t come...

Inside, I know it’s not the same but tonight I’ll play this game.
Cuz I’m a slave to this broken heart of mine,
And I’m intoxicated by your charm,
Vindicated by damage you’ll never see,
Tonight all I need is a woman who can satisfy me.

No I won’t lead you on girl,
So go on and do your thing,
Just leave me to myself.
And when we come back to your city,
I hope we can meet up and make it a repeat, oh yeah.
And when you let me in, you know that I won’t come...

Inside, I know it’s not the same but tonight I’ll play this game.
Cuz I’m a slave to this broken heart of mine,
And I’m intoxicated by your charm,
Vindicated by damage you’ll never see,
Tonight all I need... all I need

You don’t know me.
And I don’t know you.
But tonight it doesn’t matter.
I know I've gotta have her.
Just to feel alive.

There’s no need to hesitate, you should jump right on this.
Cuz my time is shorter than your skirt, you should come and get it.

Hey, Hey, Hey!
Hey, Hey, Hey!

Inside I know it’s not the same but tonight I’ll play this game.
Cuz I’m a slave to this broken heart…

Inside, I know it’s not the same but tonight I’ll play this game.
Cuz I’m a slave to this broken heart of mine,
And I’m intoxicated by your charm,
Vindicated by damage you’ll never see,
Tonight all I need is you to satisfy me.

Texas Swagger

Written By: Maybe If You Hit It

I’m gonna need another good time to put the past behind,
Just tap the keg now and wash it down with some of that Texas Swagger…

Get up we're going out tonight,
Put your drinking shoes on lets ride,
I know a party where the ladies are hot,
And they’re filling up the cups when you’re ready or not.
They've got that kick back down,
Drink till they hit the ground.
Living for right now.

I gotta have another late night, hit it off just right.
Bring your friends, lay your money down, cuz this could go all night.
I’m gonna need another good time to put the past behind,
Just tap the keg now and wash it down with some of that Texas Swagger, Texas Swagger…

Shake it baby and I’ll make it rain,
Got me feeling like I’m T- Pain.
All my Texas Triple Exes are Friends,
Yeah we do it all night and it ain’t no sin.
My wicks are both on fire,
Cutting into the wire.
Living for right now.

I gotta have another late night, hit it off just right.
Bring your friends, lay your money down, cuz this could go all night.
I’m gonna need another good time to put the past behind,
Just tap the keg now and wash it down with some of that Texas Swagger…

Oh...

You can try to escape,
But the swagger’s coming back to take you away.

I gotta have another late night, hit it off just right.
Bring your friends, lay your money down, cuz this could go all night.
I’m gonna need another good time to put the past behind,
Just tap the keg now and wash it down with some of that Texas Swagger… Texas Swagger…
I’ll take my swagger to go…
Yeah…
