We are a close-knit family of musicians dedicated to writing music with a voice of its own, to creating songs with an eclectic fusion of guitar, piano, bass, drums, & carefully crafted melodies. We write our lyrics with the same determination, using uncommon imagery to tell the story on our hearts.

Biography

A unique blend of acoustic/folk/rock, featuring five siblings, "Rambellwood" was begun in 1998 when the Ramsey siblings; -- guitarist/lyricist/composer/vocalist, Sam, and lyricist/vocalist, Emma,-- joined their efforts to create original songs.  Their music grew, and blossomed, with the addition of drummer/cellist, James, vocalist/bassist, Johanna, and pianist, Grace.  Driven by thought-provoking, Christ-centered lyrics, their music is an eclectic fusion of distinctive guitar and melodic piano, given depth with the added elements of bass and drums.

The Ramsey siblings have been musicians since childhood, but it was the release of their first album, self-titled, and recorded at home, in 2007, that motivated them to doggedly pursue publicizing their music.  In 2009, their song, "Color Me", was awarded second prize in the "Song of Faith" contest created by the "Tyler Morning Telegraph", of Tyler, TX, near their hometown.  After spending much of 2009 gigging through-out their area, and into Dallas/Fort Worth, they are now perfecting their recordings, recording new songs, and pushing forward with a passion to share the heart of the Father through music.

Lyrics

Moonlight

Written By: Emma Ramsey

It’s only moonlight
It’s only that I’m
Intoxicated with You, Jesus
You hold me so tight in Your hand and I...

...will not let go, I will not let go,
Of the hand that’s holding on to me

I wanna sing, I wanna sing to You
I wanna open up my mouth and let Your heart break through
I wanna sing, I wanna sing, to You, Jesus, Jesus

It’s only sunlight
It’s only that I’m
Dizzy with the breath of You, Lord
You press me so close to Your heart and I...

...will not let go, I will not let go,
Of the hand that’s holding on to me

I wanna sing, I wanna sing to You
I wanna open up my mouth and let Your heart break through
I wanna sing, I wanna sing, to You, Jesus, Jesus

They can’t stop me, They can’t rob me
Of this peace You’ve overflowed
They can’t drown me out,
They can’t stop this sound… no… no... no.

I wanna sing, I wanna sing to You
I wanna open up my mouth and let Your heart break through
I wanna sing, I wanna sing, to You, Jesus, Jesus

Sailboat

Written By: Emma Ramsey

I don't want to be a steamboat,
Pushing over life's sea
All on my own energy

Blowing smoke

I don't want to be a galley
Turning those I love to slaves
To make my life ride the waves

Churning pain

I don't want to ride the tide,
A restless, forgotten stone
Smoothed beneath the foam

Emotionless

I want to be a sailboat
Guided by a windy hand
From torrent to the sand

Belonging

Windowpane

Written By: Emma Ramsey

When the world is cold
Beyond my windowpane
When the day is old
And my heart refrains
From opening up
Showing love
Giving up

Open me up
Break down my doors
Fill up my heart
Sweep the dust from my floors
I am yours

When my peace has flown
Far beyond my grasp
When I’m all my own
Running from your grace
Afraid of opening up
Showing love
Giving up

Open me up
Break down my doors
Fill up my heart
Sweep the dust from my floors
I am yours

Interfere

Written By: Emma Ramsey

A beating wave, that enfolds the shore
A rushing wind, catching at the leaves,
Painted, dying
You. All I want is You.

Interfere, in my heart
Interrupt the dark
Take away my blindness
Touch the ears of my soul

With the melody of You.

A trembling song that makes me weep
Sudden, jolting words upon a page
You. All I want is You.

Interfere, in my heart
Interrupt the dark
Take away my blindness
Touch the ears of my soul

With the melody of You.

You are inside of me
Take what I think I need.

Interfere.

Every Life is a Story

Written By: Emma Ramsey

Every life is a story
And we're all trying to write ours
We want to make it something
Others would want to hear, want to read
Maybe put it to music
Maybe someone could use it
Make it a poem
Search for that something

You are my inspiration
You are the words on my paper
You make the music for my tale
You break through
You lift the veil

Every life is a song
And we're all, trying to write ours
We want to hear what others
Are trying to say, to convey
But we haven't the answers
We're only the dancers
Moving our feet
Searching for something

You are my inspiration
You are the words on my paper
You make the music for my tale
You break through
You lift the veil

And you and I break through
