RAGING GEISHA (crunk rock) breaks all rules, destroying timeless stereo-types, and takes to an untouchable level! Fronted by Erica-Sommer, a stunning, exotic beauty, her strong fiery, yet sultry vocals and producer/bassist, David Siegel, fuel the rage of RAGING GEISHA.

Biography

RAGING GEISHA is the most exciting band in Florida, and the only band that truly represents “the money”. Erica-Sommer a.k.a. the chocolate Pamela Anderson, or the punk-rock Tyra Banks, fronts the high-energy “crunk-rock” band, RAGING GEISHA. The music combines the best qualities of rock, urban, punk, and pop delivering a sound and vibe unlike anything else out there! RAGING GEISHA is a triple threat with the strong vocal ability of the tantalizingly sexy, charismatic front-woman, Erica-Sommer, driven by the hottest musicians in Florida, raging ahead with crossover, commercial radio hits!

RAGING GEISHA has played every venue in Florida/South Fl., including the Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, Ft. Lauderdale areas, and South Beach, where they are especially known for their unique brand of “beach punk”. RAGING GEISHA has a unique ability to rock any stadium or live music venue, and yet perform as a feature act in popular dance clubs throughout South Beach, normally only known for resident and guest DJs. Just to name a few of RAGING GEISHA’s more high profile gigs, they have played the Florida Music Festival in Orlando two years in a row, opened for Smashmouth at the Jacksonville Stadium during the famous UGA/UF game, headlined as one of the premiere acts at the brand new national venue, STUDIO A in the Entertainment District of Miami, as well as national/international venue, THE CULTURE ROOM, and one of the only live rock bands to ever perform at the internationally famous Winter Music Conference! Their fans number all over the state, and thanks to those fans as well as great marketing tools like MySpace, today RAGING GEISHA has fans all over the world, especially in the U. S., South America, Canada, the U. K., Germany, Sweden, Belgium, Malaysia, and of course—JAPAN!
RAGING GEISHA front-woman, Erica-Sommer, originally from Atlanta, GA, started writing and performing her songs at an early age. Upon her relocation to Miami, FL, Erica-Sommer formed her first original rock band, E-S-P. Although, Erica-Sommer’s influences range between various styles and artists like Greenday, No Doubt, Garbage, Skunk Anansie, Muse, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Nina Simone, and Pat Benetar, she quickly developed her own style and vibe, showcasing her strong, intense voice, her feisty stage presence, and colorful expression. In 2001, Erica-Sommer began the long-lived collaboration with current music partner, Dave Siegel.
RAGING GEISHA bassist/keyboardist David Siegel is a songwriting/producing veteran who has worked with Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Celine Dion, Clay Aiken, Enrique Iglesias, Jessica Simpson, Marc Anthony, Thalia, and more. Erica-Sommer and David formed RAGING GEISHA five years ago (formerly under the name E-S-P), but only recently completed their latest demo, or as everyone refers to it as the RAGING GEISHA “collection of singles”, submitted now for your listening pleasure!

Lyrics

Shoot

Written By: David Siegel

VERSE 1:
I can tell \\ Something’s on your mind
You can tell me \\ I won’t be unkind
I can see it \\ Burning in your eyes
You wanna tell me that you want me tonight

PRE-CHORUS:
You don’t have to be \\ so shy with me
I can feel the things you wanna say
I can’t wait for you \\ to start making moves
I’ll tell you right away

CHORUS:
Just shoot baby, get it off your chest
Bring it on, hit me with your best now
Just shoot baby, don’t waste my time
Let’s get right down to the line now

Just shoot baby, but it to the test
It’s me that you gotta impress now
Just shoot baby, don’t get all soft
Go down ‘til I get off

VERSE 2:
You see me \\ you can’t see my thoughts
I see through you \\ I know what you want
Don’t hold back \\ say what’s on your mind
Tell me now boy and please don’t take your time

PRE-CHORUS 2:
You don’t have to lie \\ don’t say goodbye
Tellin’ me you wanna take it slow
That’s what friends are for \\ we could be more
Don’t you wanna know

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I feel the tension building
You’re gonna hit the ceiling
I know you’re ready and you’re willing
To feel it, yeah

CHORUS

Jerk

Written By: David Siegel

VERSE 1:
I don’t know, what you think about me
I don’t like, how you act around me
I don’t need to be, just some fantasy
I want a man who wants to be with me

PRE-CHORUS #1:
Why don’t you admit it
You just like to hit it
But you don’t want me around
Well I just can’t be down

When you

CHORUS:
Say what you want, And you say what you need
And you tell me the things, That you want me to be
But I can’t just pretend, that I get your respect
And there’s one little thing, That I still don’t get

HOOK:
Why you gotta be a jerk around me
Why you gotta be a jerk around my friends
Why you gotta be a jerk to me
I’m just trying to make you happy

Why you gotta be a jerk around me?
Why you gotta be a jerk around your friends?
Why can’t you be a man, I gotta take a stand
This won’t work cause you’re a jerk

VERSE 2:
There you go, asking me a question
You don’t know, that I see you’re testing me
You think I don’t mind, but you’re out of line
Then you laugh with all your friends
And get the best of me

PRE-CHORUS #1:
It’s humiliating
Cause you’re so frustrating
You don’t let me say a word
I wanna kick you to the curb

Cause you…

REPEAT CHORUS
REPEAT HOOK

SOLOS (4 measures)

CHORUS 3:
Say what you want, And you say what you need
And you tell me the things, that you want me to be
But I can’t just pretend, that I get your respect
And there’re so many things that I just can’t forget

CHORUS 4:
Say what you want, And you say what you need
And you tell me the things, that you want me to be
But I can’t just pretend, that I get your respect
And I’m gonna do something that you will regret

REPEAT HOOK

CRUMBLING DOWN

Written By: Erica-Sommer, David Siegel, Jacin Nagao

VERSE 1:
I know what you’re thinking
I don’t know what I can say
I’ll give you a reason
You don’t believe me anyway

I’ve seen it before, You’re not even sure
If you can take it anymore
Well I wanna know, If you can show
Me a reason to live for

PRE-CHORUS:
I toss and turn, I never learn
I ask myself why do I stay?

It’s so insane, To play this game
I never wanted it this way

CHORUS:
I know that our love’s crumlin’ down
It’s all an illusion
Just a battle that we’re both losin’
I already feel it comin’ down

And I just can’t take it
How we fake it
On and on and on and on…

VERSE 2:
I’m sick of the drama
I’m sick of feeling so abused
You tell me you want me
Why am I feeling so confused?

You think that I’m out, Messing around
And there’s nothing I can say
I try to be calm, I try to behave
You don’t love me anyway!

REPEAT CHORUS

PRE-CHORUS #2
I’ll never go down, never go back
Never be drowned, never relapse

Get out of my mind, out of my life
Out of my way, out of my sight

REPEAT CHORUS VAMP OUT
