Biography

ParkEdge formed in the summer of 2009. Singer/songwriter/guitarist, Ann Zablaskai, and drummer, Mike Lewandowski, had a passion for original music and were searching for talented, creative individuals that shared the same vision.

Guitarist/songwriter, Joe Rico, had been in search of a unique voice and a drummer who could come up with an original style for his ideas. Joe took a listen to Mike and Ann’s website and liked what he heard. He then noticed they were looking for a guitar player. A week later they met for coffee and exchanged a couple of their ideas on a laptop. Being on the same page, the three decided to get together and jam .Joe put down a few guitar parts to a couple of their tunes and it was just what was needed. They agreed to give it a shot!

Now they needed someone who was as creative as they were to play bass. Mike, Ann, and Joe threw a couple of names around but they didn’t want just anyone. They wanted someone who would enjoy the creativity as much as they did. Joe knew just the guy… Warren Namingha! Warren could not only play a wicked bass but could also play guitar and drums. He was a natural fit for ParkEdge.

With the backbone and finesse playing of award winner (2004-2005 Buffalo’s best rock drummer) Mike Lewandowski, the spirit filled wire whipping bass playing of Warren Namingha, the soulful and searing attack and licks of guitar player Joe Rico, and the heartfelt (but don’t push me around) beautiful voice of Ann Zablaskai, ParkEdge becomes a whole. Their music becomes a never ending melody driven flow with catchy lyrics that could find anyone singing along.

Lyrics

Crazy Day

Written By: ParkEdge

Crazy Day

Verse 1
I saw you at the mall today
It sure has been awhile
I didn’t think you would come back here
This town’s not your style

I thought you were the one for me
You left, I don’t know why…..
You went away
That crazy day!

Verse 2
It seems like only yesterday
Since you spent the night
And those I know they were
The best days of my life
We talked and dreamed about our future
Over dinner and wine

Then you went away…
That crazy day

Chorus

Oohh I don’t want to see you
You’re messin with my mind
It’s impossible to know
How much love you left behind
My heart is still bleeding
And I would rather DIE than say…….
“Hello.”

Solo

Chorus

Oohh I don’t want to see you
You’re messin with my mind
It’s impossible to know
How much love you left behind
My heart is still bleeding
And I would rather DIE than say…….
“Hello…

It’s nice to see you again.
How’ve you been?
I know it’s been 10 years
And yes you still look great…
Guess I’m OK.
I often think of you
The love I thought I knew
I’m sure life’s been really good to you
Since you threw it away!

Highway

Written By: ParkEdge

Highway

Verse 1

Well I’ve been thinking about that Highway
Thinking about what I left behind
Knew I had to start a new life somewhere
Seemed like a good idea at the time

Verse 2

Yes I’ve got a brand new life ( got a brand new life here)
And they tell me I’m doing alright ( guess I’m doing alright)
But I’m torn between the past and the present
What if I didn’t leave that night?

Oh lately I’ve been felling lonely
And I can’t seem to get you outta my mind
Lately I’ve been feeling homesick

Well I’ve been thinking about it
And sometimes dreaming it ( dreaming it too)
That I would take that Highway
And head back home to you ( home to you)
And you know I often wonder
What my life would have been like
If I didn’t take that Highway
And leave anything behind
But Ohhh .. I don’t know

Solo

Should I get back on that Highway now
( I’m thinking , I’m thinking of you)
Should I get back on that Highway now
( I’m dreaming, I’m dreaming it too)
Should I get back on that Highway now
( I’m thinking , I’m thinking of you)
Should I get back on that Highway now
Wooah Whoah Whoah..

Should I get back on that Highway?
Really wish I could foresee my fate
Should I get back on that Highway?
Start again with a brand new clean slate
Should I get back on that Highway?
But I realize it might be too late
To get back on that Highway….

Ohhh , Ohhh Ohhh , Ohhh

Not Perfect

Written By: ParkEdge

Not Perfect

Verse 1

Why do you question everything that I do?
Don’t you know I’m doing the best that I can.
Can’t you see, I’m trying so hard just to please you
But you put me down, saying that I’m not your friend

I remember when you told me I was beautiful
And you always wanted to spend your time with me

But things have changed and baby we both know
I don’t deserve this , It’s time to go.
But that’s ok
I’m just telling you I wanted more

Chorus:
Oh I know that I’m not perfect
I know that I am not a 10
But you can’t accept me for who I am
Then you’re never gonna see me again
You’re never gonna see me again

Verse 2

Do you want to be alone well I’m not sure
Or maybe there is someone else that you’re looking for
But that’s ok
I’m just telling you I wanted more

Chorus:
Oh I know that I’m not perfect
I know that I am not a 10
But you can’t accept me for who I am
Then you’re never gonna see me again
You’re never gonna see me again
