Biography

Kyle Ellsworth and Steve Gallant, two grumpy ol’ session players, have finally pieces together a band to call their own. The band was created to allow for the normally overlooked rhythm section, to be finally noticed with original tunes and ideas. Basically the drive was simply to create music together, whilst including other musicians who just wanna give’er too.

The remaining holes in the band filled quickly. The original duo was seeking an A.D.D driven guitarist, Todd Arsenault, an energetic saxophonist - Jeremy Arsenault, and a fresh voice to soften their edge, Trinity Bradshaw. All of the band members have played together at some point within the last few years, and they knew instantly that working together was what this rhythm section was looking for. The style that came out of the collaboration was nothing that was anticipated, and was initially hard to grasp. Most of the members had a strong background in either jazz, heavy rock, or pop; the fact that they ended up playing psychidelic, alternative-rock was beyond the creators. Having a sound that came out by fluke really gave the band a sense that it was a sound of their own.

The band was formed throughout 2005, and the first recording sessions began in late December. Demo tracks for “Safety”, “Far From Separating”, and “The Story of a Dying Man” finally saw the light after many late and tiring recording stints. The music was not intended to carry any serious topic but more along the lines, of just being a song to listen to.

2006 has already started off with a kick, members are scheduled to play events surrounding the East Coast Music Awards and continue with their everlasting recording sessions. The band plans to continue to write and record, and of course, tour until the show can not go on.

Lyrics

Safety

Written By: Ellsworth/Gallant

Good Morning Beautiful
I hope you Slept well
Your face looks so soft,
with those arms laid of each other, Don't wanna move you until you wake

Still can't believe we've made it this far, even after the world tried to break us,
Don't worry babes as long as I'm here, I'll be the safety you need.

Remember last year, when I went away
Just like this year, how you were long gone,
We sat alone, waiting for each other,
Waiting for one another to come home

Got so many things to do, have so many places to be, always gotta be running away, when things are going so good for you and me

And once your eye's are closed and you can't me I say
Baby your so beautiful and you mean everything to me
You saved my life from falling over I'll be the safety you need

Remember last year, when I went away,
Just like this year, how you were long gone
We sat alone, waiting for each other, waiting for one another to come home

No matter how many years go by, I'll be right here
Waiting for you to show me a world, I can't possibly see
Waiting for everything we said, that we'd always die for

Cause I wanna know where we are going to be ten years from now
And if there's ever going to be a time I have to fight for you
You know I'd die for you

I'll always be the safety you need Even if I have to die for you

I'll always be the safety you need

Far From Separating

Written By: Ellsworth/Gallant

Look outside your door
There’s someone begging, for you to stand
As if its never crossed your mind, that smiling is wrong
Some things, just gotta give

Gotta have something new have, be apart of someone better,
have something else that no one else has ever had
Just don't mistake your intentions
For a broken face, waiting for you to stand

Like a mother tells her daughter she’s committing suicide... she read I'm gonna dig a hole, go as far as I can, until I can't see who I am

So don’t give into these over-rated friends
Who will try and drown your beautiful infection
That spreads when you smile with tears,
That comes, Far from separating

I have seen men in their dog years, cheating on their wives so they can
Oh, Oh... themselves
And I have heard of these religions that say they speak in tongues,
But I think that’s all bullshit

There’s no excuse, there is no dream,
There is no small world after all

I won't mistake, for your broken face
Waiting, for me to stand

So don’t give into these over-rated friends
Who will try and drown your beautiful infection
That spreads when you smile with tears,
That comes, Far from separating

Who’s going to be the industry standard, 5.0
And who is this last man standing that everyone’s been talking about

I'm no critic and don't understand numbers
I have nothing I can compare myself too
Until there’s word that your finally, we'll always be,
Far from separating

So don’t give into these over-rated friends
Who will try and drown your beautiful infection
That spreads when you smile with tears,
That comes, Far from separating
