Biography

Groovy acoustic duo Minky G and Rosco have had a busy twelve months. 

They've been spreading their catchy music across the globe: London, Oxford, Sydney, Melbourne and right around their home state of Western Australia.

They’re experienced musicians, combining infectious melodies with energetic vocals to create a unique sound, and they have a lot of fun along the way! Between them, they’ve jammed with Beyoncé's band (and taken them surfing!), supported UK artist Passenger, James Morrison, John Butler, and once accidentally supported Gyroscope... as well as a cheeky gig at the Queens Jubilee Celebrations in England in 2012!

Both Minky G and Rosco have trained at the WA Academy of Performing Arts in jazz guitar, and have performed at the Ellington Jazz Club, Settlers Tavern and the Beaufort Street Festival.

 

"Minky G delivers brilliant songwriting and her bubbly and energetic guitar playing complements her. Fans of Frank Sinatra, Norah Jones and Jack Johnson should check her out." – Fasterlouder.com

 

“I would have no hesitation in recommending Minky G and Rosco as musicians for corporate events” – Meesha Stacker, Hospitality Co-ordinator for Tourism WA.


Lyrics

The City Speaks Your Name

Written By: Minky G

The City Speaks Your Name
VERSE 1:
Truth... you’ve been travelling hours
You’d move mountains under different suns
How... when all your strength is gone
There’s still more of you, more of you left to run

Finding another turn on the line, a moment more than you remember
Watching another day go by, when the time for chances is long over

CHORUS:
But you
You are...
Beautiful this day
The seas will reach out and the city speaks your name
The city speaks your name

VERSE 2:
One... is all you understand
But many ones have been and gone and will come
Wait... can you wait longer
Longer than it takes to understand this lie

Waiting for the day to raise, a moment more than you remember
Watching as your memories run, a new order turns it over

CHORUS:
But you
You are...
Beautiful this day
The seas will reach out and the city speaks your name
The city speaks your name

Just Wondering

Written By: Minky G

Verse 1
I can only tell the endings, but I say there’s something to find
I can only tell the endings, but I say there’s something to find
Wait around yourself or later, but I’ve got a piece of my mind
Wait around yourself or later, but I’ve got a piece of my mind

Chorus:
'Cause I
‘cause I was just wondering
did you read the signs?
Don’t you know I won’t be pretending

Verse 2:
When hazy days are... all I see of my past
It’s clearer for later, but how long will that last?
Don’t ask me for reasons, I’ve got a reason to hide
I’m holding up a glass to see reflections of a different mind

Chorus:
'Cause I
‘cause I was just wondering
did you read the signs?
Don’t you know I won’t be pretending

I was just wondering x3 (last time slow)

Who You Love

Written By: Minky G

Verse 1
Waiting out this stormy afternoon... there you were
Watching as the blues pull me in tune... there you were
Cause it's more than I dreamed, but that's less than it seams, where are you?
And I wanted it all but I won't take it back when a war, a war is not what I fight for

Verse 2:
Show me where the stars can give us meaning... there you were
Watching as reality makes up for intervening... there you were
'Cause it's more than I dreamed but that's less than it seams, where are you?
And I wanted it all, but I won't take it back when a war, a war is not what I fight for

Chorus:
Tell me, who do you love, when it's what you're living for
Who do you love, when it's what you're fighting for
Who do you love, when it's what you're dying for
Who do you love, who do you love?

Verse 3
Looking at the places that I find... there you were
Checking out the stories in our eyes... ahhh
Oh but where are you?
I've been waiting so long and it looks like I'll find out the truth
Where are you?
Is it true that we only can see what we've lost by the space it leaves behind?

Chorus:
Tell me, who do you love, when it's what you're living for
Who do you love, when it's what you're fighting for
Who do you love, when it's what you're dying for
Who do you love, who do you love?

Who do you love? When it's what you're living for
Don't you know, don't you know who you love?
Who do you love?
It's who you love, it's who you love.

Take Your Love With Me

Written By: Minky G

Take Your Love With Me

Verse 1:
Here, last night
You left me sitting at the airport waiting for a final flight
Watching all of the disco lights go down so low
You got me feelin’ got me feelin’
Like I’ll take your love so slow, oh so slow

Verse 2:
This time I’ll take a stand
I’ve got a way of talkin’ you don’t understand
Want a touch of your hand, oh but I don’t ask for free
It’s right here and don’t I know
I’m gonna take your love, I’m gonna take your love with me

Bridge 1:
Every time I look it’s the same
I want to figure it out but I don’t know if I can change
Everything I think is to blame
Shoulda kept my mouth all shut
But when I’m walking away you know it’s you I’m talking about

Verse 3:
And I’ll take your love with me
‘Cause this is feeling so close and I know I don’t fall far from the tree
And I’ll say it… it sounds like it’ll get me round to where I need
You know, you know
I’ll take your love with me.

Bridge 2:
Every time I look it’s the same
I want to figure it out but I don’t know if I can change
Everything I think is to blame
Shoulda kept my mouth all shut
Shoulda kept my mouth all shut
I shoulda kept my mouth all shut
But when I’m walking away you know it’s you I’m talking about

Verse 3:
And I’ll take your love with me
‘Cause this is feeling so close and I know I don’t fall far from the tree
And I’ll say it… it sounds like it’ll get me round to where I need
You know, you know
I’ll take your love
Oh, I couldn't leave it baby
I’m gonna take your love with me

Coming Home

Written By: Minky G

Verse 1:
You know I like you a lot
I know it doesn’t matter all that much
If you seem a little older and you let it pass by
Like you haven’t got the time

Verse 2:
I know I don’t see you these days
Look into my face, it’s not the life I would have made
And I’d forgotten this feeling
But today…
It feels like coming home, oh oh
It feels like coming home

Bridge:
And even though I’ve got these walls I take this world for granted
It doesn’t stop here
Even though I’m smart I wouldn’t have a clue
I can’t help it, I walk all over you

Verse 3
Just because we don’t see eye to eye
Doesn’t mean we lie to we build on a life
Heading all the way up to the clouds
‘Cause I’m falling, and I don’t even know why
You feel like coming home, oh oh
You feel like coming home

Bridge:
And even though I’ve got these walls I take this world for granted
It doesn’t stop here
Even though I’m smart I wouldn’t have a clue
I can’t help it, I walk all over you

Verse 4 (verse chords):
You know I like you a lot
I know it doesn’t matter all that much
If we’re away
You feel like home… you feel like home
You feel like coming home.
