Biography

Niacin Flush: Driving Alternative/Pop Meets Infectious Metal

Brint Hollis and Lee Bowen first discovered their chemistry for melodic rock music in high school with their band 7Miles Downcast. Living in Jonesboro, Arkansas and gigging across the mid-south, 7MD quickly sold a limited pressing of their demo and began to develop a very loyal following.

In 1999, singer/guitarist Brint Hollis moved to Alabama and enrolled in the University of North Alabama’s Entertainment Industry program. In 2000, guitarist Lee Bowen followed suit to Alabama and the pair reunited to pursue their passion of music. In 2003 Lee and Brint moved their project to Nashville and added bassist Chris Rebello and fellow drummer Erik Johansen (who had previously played drums on the earlier 7MD demo). The Niacin Flush line-up was finally perfected after years in the dormant stage.

This kind of foundation sets Niacin Flush apart from the rest. While everything in life has tried to keep these guys from going where they were meant to go, their focus and determination has only grown stronger. When the going gets tough, Niacin Flush is tougher and history speaks for itself.

With huge online success (Surreal- #1 in Earth- broadjam.com; Vision Fade- #5 in Modern Rock, garageband.com), an EP that is being played at well over 230 radio stations across the US (#8 charting in Jacksonville, FL, #8 Kenosha, WI, #10 York, PA, #13 Eau Claire, WI to name a few) and a killer new video for “Vision Fade” (available for view at myspace.com/niacinflush), Niacin Flush is taking things to the extreme. The sky holds no limit; the only variable is time.

R u ready to feel the Flush??

Lyrics

Surreal

Written By: Brint Hollis

Is what I see staring back at me
Do the words that I hear
lie deep within my fears
Could a sin so sweet
make me carefree
If the thoughts of my mind
we’re never meant to be
We’re they ever meant to be

Is what I feel really even real
If what’s in my life
is more than just surreal
If what’s inside I never did reveal
What would I have lost
something more to steal

Do you seek to mystify
play games with my mind
Cuz' now my ship is sinking
I don’t know why
I thought I had a lot of friends
Where are they all now
Is there a friend
Who sticks closer than a brother

Is what I feel really even real
If what’s in my life
is more than just surreal
If what’s inside I never did reveal
What would I have lost
something more to steal

Do you look at the night
down from your moon
and say, “tell me your lies”
Do you look at the night
down from your moon
and say, “tell my your cries”
Do you look at the night
down from your moon...
“Tell me your cry”

Myopic

Written By: Brint Hollis, Lee Bowen

She pulls her hair,
“I don’t care anymore. They don’t know anything about me.”
She’s caught somewhere between the air of two locked doors
Still she presses on to who she’s meant to be

They say “impossible”
They say “unreachable”
They say “improbable”
I’m better off backing off
"before I fall"
I’ll push against the grain-
Still love you all the same
I’ll show you all one day-
You can bet that you won’t
stand in my way

He’s fallen down
like a tree falls to the ground
Thorny vines cover and surround
“When will the truth be savored”
“Why is ‘no chance’ so favored”
"How can I prove these
‘pipe dreams’”
Pressing on for what
he must believe

Vision Fade

Written By: Brint Hollis, Lee Bowen

Waiting for life to lead the way
The present relies on the futures fate
Wanting this moment to not go in vain
Obscuring the lines drawn on my faith

But is it to late?
The sun shines on...

Clarity stares into my eyes...
I'm facing the tears I cannot cry
My state of mind is redefined...
Internal attributes by design

Praying before my spirit breaks
I'm moving beyond to a different place
Yielding for breath each course I take
Discover the dawn of another day

Before it's too late
The sun shines on...

Clarity stares into my eyes...
I'm facing the tears I cannot cry
My state of mind is redefined...
Internal attributes by design

Now I won't look back
I won't lose sight of my very next step
You know I've got the fire inside
Lose my grip use my guide
With my knees to the ground
That's when you take me for the ride

Clarity stares into my eyes...
I'm facing the tears I cannot cry
My state of mind is redefined...
Internal attributes by design
