Biography

From Southern New Jersey comes Redliner, a band looking to redefine melodic hard rock in the Tri-State Area. Each member of Redliner brings his unique styles to this band and a no-nonsense approach to songwriting.

Founded in the summer of 2007 by guitarist Dan Chrzan (Crystal Synn, Mikell’s Plot) and vocalist Jim Santora (77LeSabre), the duo spent months molding what would become the Redliner sound. In the winter of 2008, drummer Don Valentino and bassist Steve Tortu entered the fold and provided the backbeat for Redliner’s life soundtrack.

The band released their first full length CD titled Vengeance in January 2009. Recording was done by Wayne Earls of WNE Recording out of Deptford NJ. The material is being mastered by Wayne Davis of The Sound Station (who has done work with Breaking Benjamin, Ill Nino, Dropping Daylight and Philadelphia’s Noosphere). .

With the release of “Vengeance”, the band gained some exposure from the press and radio, including Metal Edge Magazine saying that Redliner was “reinventing modern hard rock”. The band released two singles, “Knock Me Down” and “Damaged Girl” which received airplay on over 35 radio stations and speciality programs including WYSP (Philadelphia), WSTW (Wilmington DE), WZBH (Georgetown DE), WZZO (Allentown PA), WLFR (Atlantic City NJ), and internet stations and programs like Maximum Threshold, Hot Rocks Radio and Sound Machine to name a few. .

Redliner also has had the opportunity to perform at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia, Six Flags in Jackson NJ, 2009’s Jamfest 3 in Jackson NJ as well as performing with the band Suicide City at the Cherrywood in Clementon NJ. .

In April of 2009, Chrzan decided to leave the band to pursue other interests. Redliner asked guitarist Kurt Dillon (77LeSabre, Axiom Rox, Eyes Of Disarray) to fill in the spot and the band has been moving forward ever since. .

Redliner recently recorded a live CD/DVD at Blue Light Digital Studios in Mount Holly NJ which will be available soon. The disc includes new material as well as songs from the “Vengeance” CD. The band is still writing material for a follow up to Vengeance in 2010. Also in 2010, the band plans to embark on some mini-tours to some of the areas they have reached with their radio play in the last year. .


Lyrics

Knock Me Down

Written By: Redliner (Lyrics: Santora)

Your not the voice of reason
Your attitude shows no fear
It's unlike you to have a soft side
Thinking it's your ship to steer

I refuse to take this abuse
I refuse to hear your half-truths
I refuse to hear you

Knock me down and I'll get back up
Then knock me down again
Knock me down and I'll get back up
Get you then

Your plot is to seek and destroy
Turn me away from my family tree
It's not your motive to have feelings
Refusing me to be free

I refuse to take this abuse
I refuse to hear your half-truths
I refuse to hear you

Knock me down and I'll get back up
Then knock me down again
Knock me down and I'll get back up
Get you then

Hold on - It's gonna be a long ride
Hold on for your life
Hold on - Your not getting off so easy
Hold on for your life

Knock me down and I'll get back up
Then knock me down again
Knock me down and I'll get back up
Get you then

I refuse to take this abuse
I refuse to hear your half-truths
I refuse to take this abuse

I refuse to take this abuse
I refuse to hear your half-truths
I refuse to take this abuse

Damaged Girl

Written By: Redliner (Lyrics: Santora)

Found you on the corner
Took you in from the cold
Gave you food and shelter
Away from the world
Your hearts been shattered
By the minds that you've trusted
The pain is so deep inside
I'm the one who pays

Your a damaged girl and I took you from the world
You've be devestated
Oh the damage
Your a damaged girl and you took full advantage
You've been paralyzed
Oh the damage

Sitting in the bedroom
You give a blank stare
Looking right through me
Like I'm not even there
Your searching for a reason to blame upon your thoughts
Your searching for an image and
I'm the one it costs

Your a damaged girl and I took you from the world
You've be devestated
Oh the damage
Your a damaged girl and you took full advantage
You've been paralyzed
Oh the damage

Lay A Finger

Written By: Jim Santora

You think your so mighty
You believe your god
You think you can point the finger
Into the one you love
You say you love her
And then you smirk
You think you can smash your fist
And make them feel hurt

Who has the problem
Just look in the mirror
Who has the problem
Just look in the mirror

You think your untouchable
With all your armor
You think you can pull the trigger
Into the one you love
You say she's the one
And then you laugh
You think you can grab the hammer
And make them feel hurt

Who has the problem
Just look in the mirror
Who has the problem
Just look in the mirror

Never
Lay A Finger
Never
Lay A Finger

You think your so mighty
You believe your god
You think you can point the finger
Into the one you love
You say you love her
And then you smirk
You think you can smash your fist
And make them feel hurt

Who has the problem
Just look in the mirror
Who has the problem
Just look in the mirror

Never
Lay A Finger
Never
Lay A Finger
