Biography

MONEYSHOT ™ delivers decisive melodies, relentless energy, and powerful rhythms. Gripping vocals and undisguised lyrics make for a passionate and palatable performance every time. Seasoned and timely, we pride ourselves on the ability to meet our commitments and thoroughly complete your entertainment needs.

MONEYSHOT ™ began in 2004 and has housed such acclaimed artists as Jerry Outlaw of Bogus Pomp. Dana Walsh, the band's founding member has captained the outfit since its earliest fruition, and has been a nationaly touring musician for 15 years. MONEYSHOT ™ enjoys it's most sound and trench ready line up to date. New additions include: Vocalist; Brian Stevenson (TripkiT, Fornikulture, Sonic Erotica), and Drummer; Rick Hoffer (Rebel Pride, Skin Deep). Bass Player, Jason Wilson completes the unit up and has been with the band for 2 years. Eager and ready, MONEYSHOT ™ practices 4 nights a week, and typically performs 2-3 shows per weekend within the state of Florida.

We maintain and own a 5600 SF Practice/ Audio/ Video Studio, company van, and haul a large, 2-Axel trailer, to every show. We also use the AutoTrain to reach gigs outside of our state, but within our region.

MONEYSHOT ™ always carries a wide variety of his/hers merchandise, available in multiple sizes, colors, and formats to every show, regardless of venue size. This is key to any band's survival, and we like to stay on top of our product to ensure brand recognition wherever our music might take us.

For more detailed information about the band, it's members, or tour dates, please visit our additional links to network with any of our various MySpace pages...as we maintain and update them daily :)

Be sure to check out our audio, image, and video files while you are here! They're homegrown - that's right we do all of our own A/V production. However, we will be going back to Morrisound to cut our 2009 release "Liquorbox." www.morrisound.com

There's no doubt that it's a great time to be alive, and technology affords us a lot of avenues we didn't have 10 years ago. Although we are capable and savvy in the studio, some things you just have to go to the pros for, to get them right. Jim Morris (Morrisound) recorded our 2004 LP "Trust," and it sounds fabulous. He'll be doing the same for "Liquorbox," in January 2009 :)

Thank You Kindly for viewing our EPK,

Lyrics

LONELY MAN

Written By: MONEYSHOT TM

(V1)
When the world has shined down and the lights have faded on you!
Can you feel my loneliness?
What can this poor boy do?
Fair well in denial and proceed to give it all away!
Only for, a moment in time,
Then it slips, so far away, so far away, so far away!

(CH)
Cried the tears of a lonely man,
Who’s fallen apart at the seams!
Cried the tears of a lonely man,
Who sees you in his dreams!

(V2)
Such a long time, so many miles,
Just to throw it all away and live in denial!
Seems like forever but forever has end,
And in the morning my love, I’ll be gone again!

Can you see the real me, staring back at you?
Wanting just to believe, that all you say is true!
You know you've been there and I’ve been there to!
I’ve laid it all out for you to see, can you feel it growing in me?
Can you feel it growing in me? Can you feel? Can you feel?

(CH 2X)

(V3)
What’s the writing on the wall?
My memory stained by the fall!
All this work, I feel is in vain!
Live my life through all this damn pain!
I search, deep within your soul,
What I’ll find, I do not know!
Only for, a moment in time,
Then it slips, so far away, so far away, so far away!

(CH 2X)
I cried those nights,
I died in vain,
I cried those nights,
But you’re always in my dreams!

(CH)

LIFE

Written By: MONEYSHOT TM

(V1)
A new life was brought to me,
With – the death of those before,
That which has haunted me,
Will come forth forever more!
I'll struggle - fight just to see the next day,
Knowing I'll move on - and never see things your way!

(V2)
Now look at me now I'm stand-in tall and proud like,
You thought I'd never before!
You thought you'd keep me-on-the-ground,
Kicking me forever more!
Well I’ve proved you wrong once,
And I got no problem, proving you wrong again!

(PC)
With death brought life,
And a new world begins!
When a new struggle,
And a will to love again!

(CH)
One hate, one peace comes within,
Just tryin’ to stay alive!
And for revenge I will strive,
Just to prove you wrong!
Well it seems all love is lost and go-o-one,
Pick up the pieces and try to move on!

(V3)
Now I've been now down this road so,
Many times within my life,
With the solemn belief,
That everything would be all right!
I can see the sun settin’ in the west,
And I know this time we're done for sure!

COMING DOWN

Written By: MONEYSHOT TM

(V1)
Your life is full of self-inflicted wound
You try to heal your scars and hide your pain
You have always been living a lie
You know it could never ever be

(CH)
I'm coming down,
Trying to get my soul off the ground
Gonna’ scream out loud
Tryin’ to find my place in this world

(V2)
|They will never truly understand,
Because they haven't seen the pain that’s been endured
And I know you would sacrifice it all
But nothing in this world is worth dying for me

(CH)
I'm coming down,
Trying to get my soul off the ground
Gonna scream out loud
Tryin to find my place in this world

(BREAK)
Torn my insides out and ripped them out for you,
Let your self in and infect the wounds
Life is full of self-inflicted wounds
You try to heal your scars denounce the pain

(INTERLUDE)
Trying to fulfill a prophecy written so long ago
I can't take this
I can't take this

(BREAK)
Torn my insides out ripped them out for you,
Let your self in and infect the wounds

(SOLO)

(INTERLUDE)
Trying to fulfill a prophecy written so long ago
I can't take this
I can't take this

(BREAK)
Torn my insides out and ripped them out for you,
Let your self in and infect the world

FAIRWEATHER FRIEND

Written By: MONEYSHOT TM

(V1)
The Place Sometimes Can Make A Situation
The City Life Ain't All That
The Neon Lights they pierce through To My Soul
Can't Turn On What I've seen

(SECONDARY)
You're always wasting My Time
Just stole My Last Dime
The whole world you love to screw
Who needs friends like you?

(PC)
Who's there For You? (And Who Shine On)
Who Cares For You? (And Who'll Be Long Gone)
Who Smiles At You? (When they're Lyin')
And Yourself You're Still Denying

(CH)
Fair-weather Friend you're Not My Brother
You bend your words like so many others
Fair-weather Friend you're Not My Brother
Bend Not Your Knee to Another

(V2)
Face Down At Four AM
You Don't Know the Place you're in
You cheat in life just to get by
Back Stain' Worth The Price

(SECONDARY)
And You're Still wasting' My Time
Just stole My Last Dime
The Whole World You Love To Screw
Who needs friends like you?

ILLUSIONS

Written By: MONEYSHOT TM

(V1)
You denied every emotion you should have received,
Lied straight to your face and forced to believe,
In something you knew could never be,
But blinding your eyes makes it so easy to see!

(PC)
This person you’d rather be,
This person you’d rather be!

(CH)
I can’t take these steps to nowhere,
To find myself already there alone!
Dream dissolved from illusions in my hands,
To find myself facing my deceit!

(V2)
Suppressed by the anger you’ll do anything to let yourself go,
But I kept bringing you through known it wasn’t time to let go!
You build these castles within your mind,
And even though you cry you’ll make it thought the night!

(BRIDGE)
I can't leave; I can’t face another day, (another day - softly)
I’ve tried to believe but I have nothing to say, (nothing to say - softly)
I’d rather sacrifice it all, than live behind your deceit!

(BREAK)
Your deceit!

(PC)
This person you’d rather be!
But blinding your eyes makes it easy to see,
This person you’d rather be!

(CH)

(OUTRO)
Dream dissolved - from illusions,
That were placed in my hands - so long ago!
And when you - turn to find me,
I won’t be there - anymore!
These dreams dissolve in my head!

I'VE FALLEN FOR YOU

Written By: MONEYSHOT TM

(CH1)
I've fallen for you
I call out to you
I've fallen for you
I've been waiting to

(V1)
I've searched the world for you
But these arms stay wide open
Even when the skies were blue
It wasn't enough without you

I searched the seven seas
10 long years to find you
I've walked a thousand miles
I've lost so many hours

(CH2)
To let me find you
just to remind you
Your one of a kind
these things on my mind

(V2)
It's been so long since then
I never will pretend
a quest a key to my heart
something deep inside from the start

I cling to a glimmer of hope
someday this quest will end
precious things my memories to me
my love is all I can send

MIRACLES

Written By: MONEYSHOT TM

(V1)
I’ve thought a thousand times what I’d say to you.
My only child, I want what’s best for you.
I hope I get this right coz’ we’ve got a long way to go.
God grant me the patience to understand.

(CH)
When I look into your eyes,
I believe in miracles.
Cloud turn into sunshine, in my life.
When she looks into my eyes,
I see the miracle.
Tears of joy, like rain, fall from my eyes.

(V1)
Life lain in the balance; I will not fail.
I pray Ayla loves me, and knows I care.
When I see your reflection, I am paralyzed;
Star struck in a moment and I realize…

(CH)
(SOLO)
(CH)

When I look into her eyes…

COUNT YOU OUT

Written By: MONEYSHOT TM

(CH)
I WILL COUNT YOU OUT
THIS PLACE AIN'T WORKIN FOR ME
YOU CAN FIGURE IT OUT
ONE DAY YOU WILL SEE

(V1)
THESE 4 WALLS ARE CAVING IN ON ME
WHAT YOU DO AIN'T ALWAYS HELPIN ME
THIS WORLD I JUST CAN'T FIGURE OUT
THE DOCTORS DON'T TELL ME MUCH

(PC)
COULD SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME
I'VE LOST MY WAY CAN'T YOU SEE
COULD YOU HELP ME?

(CH)

(V2)
STARE OUT THE WINDOW WAITING ON THE RAIN
SO CONFUSED, HOW COULD IT BE LATE?
THE YEARS HAVE TOUGHENED UP MY SOUL
FILLED IN THE CRACKS SOMETIME AGO
