Biography

We are a genuine southern rock group formed in late spring of 2004 in a little remote place called Hammarö of Sweden. The 4 original members Andy, Danny, Perry & Dallen have been making music since teenage years. We’ve managed to get the mud off our boots, and the dust off our hats, and fine tuned this band to play anywhere.

Our attitude and lifestyle is what keeps the "south" in southern rock music alive in us. Our don't give a damn attitude is what lets us make this music that takes you back 30 years or more, to when that fine sound of Southern rock music exploded all over the world.

The band (Perry, Andy, Danny, Snake & Dave) were influenced by Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Who, The Rolling Stones, and Credence Clearwater Revival.

We all have our own sets of roots in rock & southern rock music since before puberty, and we knew we would all be making music for the rest of our lives.

Now we've been told that our style of Southern Rock, is some good old fashion ass kicking, boot stomping, bar music that demonstrates why it re-invite’s the fabulous tunes of the 70’s into popular music culture again.

Since 2004, the band has played countless dates in clubs & festivals in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Austria, Holland, and Belgium; with a spot on the 2006 "Hallelujah Tour."

Spring 2005 we released an EP; "Max light" recorded at "Studio Cobra" in Stockholm, with three songs including the big hit "Streetlight." After some Swedish radio airtime the record received a fair share of good reviews, and the EP that was originally to be used for promotional purposes, ended up being sold in local record stores in Karlstad.

In early 2006, the band recorded a set of six songs in Åmål at "Dead End Production," and recorded an additional three songs at "Dust Studios" in Karlstad, for a September 2006 release of our album "Hard Lovin" on HGM records. In November 2007, we (Perry and The Travellers) headed in to the studio, pitched some tents, slept in sleeping bags, and started work on our second masterpiece at "Leon Studios" outside of Karlstad, 9 songs were recorded before we took the summer to write 5 more songs for a full length LP.

Snake is a musician of many talents. He joined the band January 8t, 2008. His playing keyboards, harmonica, slide guitar, and backing vocals are a great asset to the band.

Dave joined us June of 2008. And plays the drums, he’s confident, and he has a compatibility that brings the feelings that the band is complete.

After several months in our rehearsal studio, we moved camp back to the recording studio to finish the remaining songs for the new album "Other Side of the Bridge" that was released June 17, 2009.

After the album was completed, we were sad to say goodbye our bass player and long-time friend, Danny. We will miss him!

Now we’d like for you all to welcome in Tim Flynth, our bass player who takes the music to another level.

If you like good old rock with wicked harmony and beautiful melodies, and you feel that the popular music of today needs a little kick in the ass, then tune in to Perry and The Travellers! I promise you'll be re-born!

Lyrics

You And Me

Written By: Perry and The Travellers

All I’ve got to offer is something that you wont take.
All I’ve got to give you, you just keep throwing away.
Cause I don’t think I can make it through those lonesome nights.
Wondering where I’m gonna end up,
Well I just keep on laughing when I’m doing my stuff,
Go slow when approaching

Well it’s you...
And it’s me....
Well it’s you...
And it’s me...

Well sometimes it feels like nothing’s going right.
You never had that love in your arms.
Try to embrace it when it comes,
Do it over all along.
Cause I want you
But you don’t need me
Something ain’t right. No there’s something going on
Just got to be strong

Cause It’s you...
And it’s me....
Well it’s you...
And it’s me...

Show Me

Written By: Perry and The Travellers

Take it easy while you can,
just go strolin' around.
Ride in your grandfathers pick-up truck,
if that’s what you’re life’s about.
Just don’t live all alone in your own little world,
there’s so much for you to do.
Come and hang out with my buddies and me,
We’ve got room for you.

So wont you show me I just wanna know what it’s like.
Yeah wont you show me, what your life’s about yeah.

What have you been going thru, won’t you tell me cause I really wanna know.
Smile for you’re loved ones cause you know that they care.
Even if you don’t wanna tell them about your secret hiding place,
no no no.

So wont you show me I just wanna know what it’s like
Yeah wont you show me, and just take me away to a funny place
Wont you show me what it’s like.
Ohh yeah!

Well if you come with me there ain't no guarantee.
I could do anything!!

Come with me if you feel all right I’ll be the one to show you how to fly.

No Lies

Written By: Perry and The Travellers

Well I’ve been thinkin´ babe about a thing or two
That what you say to me it isn’t true
You cant always trust your loved ones
So what you say to me
I best believe

There’s something going on in my mind
Don’t come around and tell me no lies
Don’t tell me that you want me
Don’t tell me that you need me
Don’t come around and tell me no lies
I know something feels strange

If you lie I wont joke again
What does it give
When you tell me something
you’ll never win
Don’t come and tell me lies
Your makin' me brake all down inside
That ain't the way I wanna live
So what you say to me I best believe

theirs somethin' goin´ on
Don’t come around and tell me no lies
Don’t tell me that you want me
And don’t tell me that you need me
Don’t come around and tell me no lies
I know somethin´ feels strange
