Biography

So brace yourselves. The story of oneproudmonkey goes like this.
Clint wrote some songs. Clint played said songs everywhere and anywhere that people would listen for around 2 years. One day, Tim heard the songs and talked to Clint. It turned out that not only did Clint need a bass player but Tim was a bass player! Clint & Tim both knew Dallas so they waited about 7 months for no good reason and then asked him to play guitar. Clint, Dallas & Tim then talked about jamming for another 3 months before finally realising they needed a drummer and a place to jam. Killing two birds with one stone, Tim talked to Dave, who Clint and Dallas knew from way back in the day and Dave confirmed he did indeed have a drum set, a rehearsal space and the requisite skill and permissions to combine the two, thus oneproudmonkey was now a band.

Fresh from playing to a thousand people at Flix in the Stix, Dubbo band oneproudmonkey are ready for more. There's an EP out, an album coming and lots more happening in monkey land! Read, see and listen to more @ www.oneproudmonkey.com

Lyrics

End of Summer

Written By: Clinton Hoy

Do you sometimes think?
That the ocean's half full
That you struggle so hard
To swim against the tides pull
That you forget to float listless
With the sun on your skin
You don't appreciate the summer
You don't take it all in

Well if you look past the boats unmanned
You can see the sky meet the sea meet the land
And we can ride this wave all the way in to the sand

It's the end of the summer and something good has begun you know
Well the sun is setting sooner but there's still so many places we can go

A kiss is a ceasefire
That brings peace to my mind
And what a relief release is to find
Sitting here waiting
Like a thought on the breeze
The sunshine in you puts my mind at ease

Now if the hemispheres of my brain
Would stop throwing doubt filled hand grenades
We could enjoy the afternoon as daylight fades

It's the end of the summer and something good has begun you know
Well the sun is setting sooner but there's still so many places we can go
