Biography

2 guys who started jamming in 1996 and can't stop. We sometimes get accused of having better stage banter than songs, but we take our music more seriously than we take ourselves. If you took your two favourite bands and put them in a blender on "smoothie" mode, My Sister Ocean would be the band that's writing songs about how your blender is better than their blender since it has no "smoothie" mode. In 2012 we collaborated with some rappers and it was pretty fun so in 2013 we're collaborating with even more people - with a May 14th release date for our new EP called "coLAB."

We've played big festivals such as Campus Chaos and the Grey Cup 2010 Main Stage, opening for Big Wreck, Hinder, Bif Naked, State of Shock, Emerson Drive, and in 1998 we even opened for Sarah Harmer's old band Weeping Tile. (we were known as Cousin Henry back then)

Frontman Holden Daniels is also an award winning music video director, directing videos for metal acts such as Suspect 3 and Jezibelle, and 'punk turned CBC folk hero' Jay Sparrow, as well as My Sister Ocean.

Lyrics

On Top Of The World

Written By: My Sister Ocean featuring DannyMac & Chips

How many ways can I explain it so you know it for sure?
It's tough to be an alcoholic entrepreneur
I demolish a 4 litre and fall on the floor, and vomit up a bed of verse on all of you yo...

I'm a drunken tornado, an arello, I'm not bananas, I'm Irish they call me call me potatoes
And I'm a clinical _____ , a bastard, couldn't even look at my self if I wasn't so so handsome...

But I digress, I haven't even gotten to the meat of it yet.
I'm coming to dave the world and I'm takin' what's left
It takes a major prick to be a major success.

I'm on top I'm on top
I'm on the top of the world
I'm on top I'm on top
I'm on the top of the world

Put your lighters up, make your hands wave
Wild eyed so you rush the stage
This is L.L. with a touch of Page, this is Daddy King with twist of Rage
Been on this for days giving 'em what they paid for
you better bring the rain, we on fuego.
I been cool but I can't be caged though
Used to be nice, must've cracked my halo

Yeah, and now there's no turning back
Catch em sippin Guiness Guiness, now Honey Jack
Where the honey's at?
Watch your money stack.
They say I couldn't do it, I ain't havin none of that. Yah!

I'm on top I'm on top
I'm on the top of the world
I'm on top I'm on top
I'm on the top of the world

I never had a gameplan
Now I open up the eyes of every sane man
Now they call me revelation man
Everywhere I go I got an Ace in hand
I never had a gameplan
Now I open up the eyes of every sane man
Now they call me revelation man
Everywhere I go I got an Ace in hand

I'm on top I'm on top
I'm on the top of the world
I'm on top I'm on top
I'm on the top of the world
(it takes a major prick to be a major success)
I'm on the top of the world
(it takes a major prick to be a major success)
I'm on the top of the world
(you better bring the rain, we on fuego)
