Biography

After forming two rock bands (one which won MTV’s local best local band of the year), Née Née met up with producer and guitarist Brent Paschke (Spymob, N.E.R.D.) to record a solo album.
“ I wanted to record an album that encompassed everything I loved: the live, solid presence of real instruments crafted with the textures of electronic drums, sounds, and samples. Brent as a guitarist and producer was the missing piece to the puzzle. I couldn’t have asked for a better recording. We chose songs that had infectious melodies and chord voicings that also created a whole vibe together for the album.”

“Songs are written organically -- just a guitar, a melody, and a lyric -- and whether or not it's working at that point, in that raw, naked state, is immediately clear. Either it's a great song or it's not, and no amount of heavy-handed production is going to change that." says Née Née. "After arranging a song, we grab our instruments and head into the studio. The song knows what it needs and it tells you when you're on the right track (no pun intended).”

“I feel grateful for those that contributed musically to this album. We have truly worked with some of the best minds in music this last year.” Throughout the making of the album, Née Née and Brent enlisted the talents of musical greats such as:, Printz Board (Black Eyed Peas), John Fields (Pink, Mandy Moore, Andrew W.K., Har Mar Superstar), Jimmy Anton (Greazy Meal, Johnny Lang), Tommy Barbarella (Prince and the New Power Generation), and Eric Fawcett (Spymob, N.E.R.D), to name a few.

On stage, audiences are being captivated by the voice and vision of an accomplished musician with true rock ‘n roll mystique. The diversity and range of Née Née’s vocals and song collection are the elements that make her so distinct.

With a stunning live band consisting of Née Née, Brent Paschke, John Olson, live drums and bass, the orchestration of loops and samples creates a whole new path for the rock-electric sound.

“We are big vintage and sound junkies. The quality of an instument, amp, or pedal is essential in our eyes to recreate the sound of the album...and just because we are very picky.”

Née Née’s first four singles have already sparked interest internationally. Check it out and see why Née Née is turning so many heads...with songs that are inevitable to never stop resounding in music lovers’ cars and bedrooms.

Secret Lover

Secret Lover

verse 1
My sec-ret lover...my sec-ret lover

Every old woman has a flower in her bible, put there in her youth by a, sec-ret lover
Every father has a, first love never mentioned

My sec-ret lover is, perfect in to me
My sec-ret lover always listens to me

chorus
Anything you want. I’ll give. I’m bleeding
Anything at all. I am. I will be
Ooh...ooh...oh I love you dar-ling
Ooh...ooh...oh I can’t believe

verse 2
Every daughter has a sec-ret garden. Goes there in the night to her, sec-ret lover
Every brother has a magazine under his, cover.
Every mother has a, sec-ret hidden deep...

My sec-ret lover is perfect in to me
My sec-ret lover never talks back, to me

chorus
Anything you want. I’ll give. I’m bleeding
Anything at all. I am. I will be
Ooh...ooh...oh I love you dar-ling
Ooh...ooh...oh I can’t believe
Ooh...ooh...whoa-hoh I love you dar-ling
Ooh...ooh...oh I can’t believe

...every old woman has a flower in her bible
...put there in her youth by a, sec-ret lover...

Birthday Suit

Today...I wanted to, let you know
Up...the...stairs...to seal my fate
I...felt...this...on our first date
I’ll tell you

chorus
Baby...baby...baby, I’m in Love with you

When we’ll have enough we can run away

Ohh...baby
Ooh...baby...baby

verse 2
Your smile...gives way, to a lover’s kiss (just as I wanted)
Close the door...I just can’t wait, to lie you down and...
Kiss your lips as I can do
Whisper what I said to you
I’ll tell you

chorus
Baby...baby...baby, I’m in Love with you
I can’t give you nothin’ but my birthday suit
I’m savin’ up my pennie for the sunny day
When we’ll have enough we can run away

Ohh...when love is true. I get so...involved with you
I can’t help it. When this is through. I’ll be the one standing next to you, and...

bridge
Don’t it feel right? When...I...hold you
They have no right. To tell...us...we’re all wrong
I can see it’s getting light. Let’s...go...to the park
And we’ll...hold each other tight.
I’ll tell you what I feel down deep inside. You tell me what you feel down deep inside

Who thought Love could be this right?
I knew-knew-knew this
O-O-On our first night
I’ll tell you

Baby...baby...baby, I’m in Love with you
I can’t give you nothin’ but my birthday suit
I’m savin’ up my pennie for the sunny day
When we’ll have enough we can run away

Baby...baby...baby, I’m in Love with you
Ohh...when love is true. I get so...involved with you

I can’t give you nothin’ but my birthday suit
I can’t help it.

I’m savin’ up my pennie for the sunny day
When this is through

When we’ll have enough we can run away
I’ll be the one standing next to you

Ohh...baby

Wake Me

Written By: Née Née


verse 1
I walked with you in the waves by the seaside
I talked to you and you showed me your soft side
and when you kissed me... it nearly whisked me
up with the seagulls to the sun above the south sea

ohh I can’t explain this way I think
ohh I can’t relate this way I feel

chorus
Wake me. Take me to the point I get to you
I’ll be... stayin’... I know this can come true
I’ll be there before you wake... tell me that you’ll be...ha wake
doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
doo dood doo doot doo doo doo doo doot doot doo doo doo doo
doo doot doot doo doo doo doo - doo do doo do doo

And as we’re sittin’ on the rocks by the big blue
The wind came crashing up the waves all around you
And then you chase me... and try to race me
Up to the heavens where the sky kisses the great sea

ohh ...I can’t explain this way I think
ohh ...I can’t relate this way I feel

chorus
Wake me. Take me to the point I get to you
I’ll be...stayin’... I know this can come true
I’ll be there before you wake... tell me that you’ll be...ha wake
doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
doo dood doo doot doo doo doo doo doot doot doo doo doo doo
doo doot doot doo doo doo doo...

bridge
Ohhh! I will not fade...away
True I know that you...you can’t be there...all the time...that’s ok, I ‘ll keep busy here.

instrumental breakdown (vibraphone and guitar duet)

doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
doo dood doo doot doo doo doo doo doot doot doo doo doo doo
doo doot doot doo doo doo doo - doo do doo do doo

chorus out
Wake me. Take me to the point I get to you
I’ll be...stayin’... I know this can come true
I’ll be there before you wake... tell me that you’ll be...ha wake
doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
doo dood doo doot doo doo doo doo doot doot doo doo doo doo
doo doot doot doo doo doo doo...

......I walked with you in the waves by the seaside
......I talked to you and you showed me your soft side
......And then you kissed me.
