Biography

Marinated in the 1970's and cooked to piano pop perfection.
With the vocal clarity of Neko Case, Hooley's vocals will command your attention almost as much as her driving piano that mirrors the audacity of a young Elton John or a velvet-flocked, furious Carole King... Not just another girl on a piano

Lyrics

SIMPLE

Written By: Naomi Hooley

SIMPLE
By Naomi Hooley 2009

Somebody came to me hoping that I could grant a wish
She said could you write a song with not so many rifts
Life isn't always up and down, that's what she said
sometimes all you want in a song is to be simple

You've never met my world, everyday hoping for a change
I've never lived your dreams, all my dreams are the same
oceans I'm drowning and skies to far above my head
if simple himself asked me to I could not be simple

Yes I have simple eyes and even a simple mind and
I hear the creak of the hardwood floor night after night
and flowers are in my garden just like they are in yours but
a white picket fence and a car does not make you simple

They say simple likes to run in the same in old crowd
I think simple likes to talk really really loud
maybe that's why I feel the need to shout and write
these up and down rifts
we could never be more than acquaintances, me and simple

You've never met my world, everyday hoping for a change
I've never lived your dreams, all my dreams are the same
oceans I'm drowning and skies to far above my head
if simple himself asked me to I could not be simple
