BandRockBlues

We combine a mix of bluesy rock riffs with melodic pop hooks and four part harmonies to create a large and accessible sound. People can relate easily to our songs which sound familiar yet fresh and energetic.

Biography

Mercury Crowe is a blues-rock band hailing from Wellington, New Zealand. Formed in 2004 while studying at University, the four song-writers wasted no time, playing a string of live shows all around the country. A regular schedule of gigs over the next few years allowed the band to finely hone their music, producing a sound which reflects the blues, rock and pop that they’ve all grown up on.

2008 has been a busy year for the Crowe who have played over fifty shows spanning the length of the country. The first single ‘Carolina’ gained nation wide radio play prompting a second run of their debut e.p. (Mercury Crowe. 2007) to sell out earlier this year. The band are currently in the studio recording their second release due out in November.

Lyrics

A Little Love

Written By: A. Mansfield, N. George

I hear you scream, you cry out loud
When all the love has left your heart

When the feelings gone and you can’t go on
Come on now just sing this song

Cos when the day is long, every thing is wrong
Won’t you walk my way

Cos a little love and it makes you feel alright
Cos a little love and it makes you feel alright

Did he make you cry, don’t wonder why
Just call upon, all the stars, in the sky

Down on your bed, do you feel dead
Just quiet down your pretty head now

Cos when the day is long, every thing is wrong
Won’t you walk my way

Cos a little love and it makes you feel alright
Cos a little love and it makes you feel alright

Cos when the day is long, every thing is wrong, and the feelings gone, I said
Won’t you walk my way

Cos a little love and it makes you feel alright
Cos a little love and it makes you feel alright

Brightest Days

Written By: A. Mansfield

Friday night as the boys cry out
Hey mama have you head what we’re all about?

Roll down your windows and dance in the street
Mary’s house is the place to be and it’s calling me

Peters calm and the weather is cool
I’m drinking coffee and living a life of two yeah

If she’s a mystery then I’m a disguise
We’re turning faces and acting like we’ve got to hide away

And I walk alone,
But this feeling through my feet is coming yeah

And it’s all the same
She draws and exhales
Will things ever change?
Cos in your life, these are the brightest days

Good morning baby what’s your name
I’d ask but then I’ll always loose the words to say

People moving two by two
I’d look for someone but I’d just end up finding you yeah

And I walk alone,
But this in my heart is coming yeah

And it’s all the same
She draws and exhales
Will things ever change?
Cos in your life, these are the brightest days

I'm not alone

Written By: N. George, H. Mckay

I have always wondered how you sleep at night
I have always wondered how you sleep at night
And I’m not alone, I’m not alone,
I’m not alone
I’m not alone, I’m not alone,
I’m not alone

I have always wondered how you live your life
I have always wondered how you live your life

And I’m not alone, I’m not alone,
I’m not alone
I’m not alone, I’m not alone,
I’m not alone

When the Red Lights Gone

Written By: H. Mckoy / N. George

Sitting here at the lights,
But there’s something wrong
I’ve been waiting here
Just a little too long

I don’t mind sitting round
Killing time
But if it don’t change soon
I’m gonna start loosing my mind

Cos when the red light’s gone
I’ll be on my way
Cos when the red light’s gone
I’ll be on my way

Been sitting here at the lights
For a while
Traffic is all I see
For miles and miles

Will I ever get away
I’ll never know
Cos I’m still waiting for this
Green light to show

Cos when the red light’s gone
I’ll be on my way
Cos when the red light’s gone
I’ll be on my way

Cos when the red light’s gone
I’ll leave this all behind,
Gonna walk next time
