BandPopSoul

An eclectic duo that on stage sounds like a 7 piece band. By using a sampler, keys and vocal effects we can create dance rock grooves with the musicality of INXS, the grittiness of Muse and the dance floor vibes of Jamiroquai.

Biography

MOJORISING: an eclectic duo fusing elements of pop, soul and funk, hailing from Melbourne Australia (currently based in Los Angeles). The self-proclaimed beat-scientists experiment with sounds, beats and technology to create their band. Think: samplers, backing tracks, effects pedals and keyboards to create an engaging and enthralling live show. But don’t think that means electro! It can be more closely aligned with the doings of INXS, Jamiroquai and Muse. Their purpose is to create original music, fusing eclectic flavours and powerful lyrics to make you feel the music, inside and out. At their shows… no one ever knows what to expect! The result: a mash of dance floor rock, soul and funky-ass riff ridden tunes.

MOJORISING recorded their debut EP at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne, Australia capturing their infectious, yet soulful sound. Their debut received an overwhelming response from fans and radio stations, including airplay in North America and Europe.

“There’s a burning desire for us to create something fresh and totally original. We want to be innovative and modern with our approach to music and live performances. There is a special musical chemistry between us; we work hard, and we stay true to our dreams” says JJ.

Having delivered many shows across Australia through rigorous touring the boys will relocate to Los Angeles October 16th 2009 to further increase exposure of their 'brand' of music and give the world something they have been waiting for.

Lyrics

She Woke Up To Me

Written By: Jozsef James

What I say and what you hear
What I show and what you see
It's about the night, you and I
Went so wrong, but made it right

Things were said that hurt I know
I felt the pain through my body flow
Had you known, I cried like the sea
Would it change the way you feel and what you see

Now I know this is real
She woke up to me, woke up to me
I feel at home, not alone
She Woke Up To Me

I feel her love through my body shake
I can be wrong and make mistakes
We're so black & white, yes I know
But it's so good and together we've grown now yes we have

Now I know this is real
She woke up to me, woke up to me
I feel at home, not alone
She Woke Up To Me

One night of passion in your eyes
It's a wonder Im not surprised
Had you known I cried like the sea
Would it change the way you feel and what you need

Now I know this is real
She woke up to me, woke up to me
I feel at home, not alone
She Woke Up To Me

Now I no longer feel, this inquisition of my condition
With the way she felt with apprehension, she's too cute to mention
And I feel it inside, it makes me feel alive
There's something I got to say
What you do, you do to me
What you say, you say to me
What you see I see it too
What you feel I feel it too
I'll be there for you because you're there for me
First to call, last to see at night

Now I know this is real
She woke up to me, woke up to me
I feel at home, not alone
She Woke Up To Me
Now I know this is real
She woke up to me, woke up to me
