Biography

Mayola is a band with an ever evolving sound, with influences from the most experimental rock and roll to traditional western and folk it is nothing short of an experience.

The honest and sometimes apocalyptic themes of the songs always focus on the "bigger picture" and sum up the story in hooks that are easy to sing along with. Live Mayola has been said to give the feeling of a mad carnival full of energy and passion. You can see that they are moved by the music they are playing and love sharing it with you.

Having played many shows in the mid-west, Mayola has made a good name for themselves opening for acts such as Joan of Arc, Split Lip Rayfield, Ludo, The Ataris, The Forecast and many others.

Mayola has also been awarded the Woody Guthrie award from the Oklahoma Gazette for the Peoples Choice of 2007.

Lyrics

We Are Going to Need a Bigger Boat

Written By: Riley Jantzen

In the back of the car, i am listening hard but i cant quite understand, a single word being said, just me and this song playing loud, but don't turn it down, well god bless the cold damp glass against my cheek, oh what i would give to stay away for days, days and days and weeks and weeks and weeks, ive got an angel shes made from a rain cloud and shes crying her eyes out all over me, an angel made from a rain cloud and shes crying her eyes out all over me, and as the rain, falls down her cumulus cheeks it rolls right down the window, says, I'm leaving you angel and you best not follow me because all i need are blue skies and beautiful days

Once, a Fisherman

Written By: Riley Jantzen

well the sun burned out and then fell down, and cold as hell i hugged the ground, each lover held a lovers and, a baby cried and the preacher said, well pray, pray the time has come to meet our father and our fathers son, but we don't pray we hide we run oh its hard to save your faith, well pray, pray the time has come to meet our father and our fathers son, but we done pray we hide we run oh its hard to save your faith, you will never see her face again, you will never kiss your lovers face you will try like hell but oh no faith in god could save you now

Robots Will Be Robots

Written By: Riley Jantzen

Well i've got arms oh I've got arms, but we have all got arms and big damn plans to keep so i will press the strings and sing oh i will sing like a broken man with blistered feet and when i break the strings oh i will break the strings then i will stomp my feet oh i will stomp and i will sing and shake a tambourine.
