Biography

"Love ‘em, hate ‘em, it doesn’t matter, these guys just throw down!"

- Tony Hurley - Mobile Rock Entertainment

Orange Willard is rapidly becoming one of Dayton, Ohio’s most popular bands. The band’s powerful sound and thought provoking lyrics have been drawing listeners to their shows since their debut on October 19th, 2002. This band never ceases to amaze audiences and other bands with their musical talent, leaving some individuals to go so far as to describe Orange Willard’s musical performance as “inspirational”.

The band has been compared to Soundgarden and System Of A Down and vocalist Rusty Paquay easily compares to the vocal style of Chris Cornell the vocalist for Soundgarden and Audioslave.

Orange Willard has come a long way since starting out as a nameless two-piece in the summer of 1997, adding three members and replacing their drummer. The band has enjoyed great success in the Dayton area, winning simultaneous Band Competitions, maintaining the number one spot in most played music in the State of Ohio
and the top fifty nationally on MP3.COM for over a year, and being voted Wright State University’s best band in 2003.

The band features Rusty Paquay as lead vocalist, Charley Skira and Tim Ditmer on guitar, Eric Ditmer on bass, and Daniel “Gub” Pedrotti on drums.

Lyrics

Blow It All To Hell

Written By: Orange Willard

Don’t speak unless spoken to
Don’t think if not thought about
Chin up as you smell success
Head down when it stinks of doubt

When you sail in lava
It burns into Heaven
It burns into Neverland
You’ll burn it all to Heaven
And blow it all to Hell

Obsess on mortality
Relax until you die
Nose up as you smell your fear
Face down when it stinks of pride

When you sail in lava
It burns into Heaven
It burns into Neverland
You’ll burn it all to Heaven
And blow it all to Hell

Set fire
Inhale the lies
Set fire
Darken the skies
Set fire
Inhale the lies
Set fire
To all the ice
Set fire to your eyes

So wrong, man loves himself
So loved, all our hearts decay
Stand up as you smell the flames
Bow down as you melt away

When you sail in lava
It burns into Heaven
It burns into Neverland
You’ll burn it all to Heaven
And blow it all to Hell

Set fire
Inhale the lies
Set fire
Darken the skies
Set fire
Inhale the lies
Set fire
To all the ice
Set fire to your eyes

Deadly Love

Written By: Orange Willard

Riding on a buzzkill
Running on shame
Run high without anyone to blame, oh yeah
This is the life I've led
Watch as the lights turn from yellow to red, oh yeah

Sitting on a deathwish
All stop to slow
Remembering the place where the lizards flow, oh yeah
This is the road I choose
Everything's easy to love and to lose, oh yeah

My love sits on the tip of your mind
My love sets chains apart to unwind
I call it love, but I know it's deadly
It's deadly

Speeding in a casket
Everything's clean
Feeling my heart pumping gasoline, oh yeah
This is the one I love
I can see everything ride from above, oh yeah

My love sits on the tip of your mind
My love sets chains apart to unwind
My love's on the road, easy to find
I call it love, but I know it's deadly
It's deadly

Fiberglass Airplane

Written By: Orange Willard

On a fiberglass airplane
There's no hope to ever ease the pain
Father dies, mother cries
And baby is the first to realize

On a fiberglass airplane
Bloody memories call the rain
To forget, or to regret
Remember all the songs and stories set

Sweet dreams little one
Hold on to your last goodbye
Sweet dreams little one
Time to fly

On a fiberglass airplane
Father bathes the son in marmalade
Come the flies, mother cries
And baby is the last to realize

Sweet dreams little one
Hold on to your last goodbye
Sweet dreams little one
Time to fly

On a fiberglass airplane
Lessons come and go, but none to name
Through all the eyes, mother dies
The baby can see right through all the lies
