Biography

Raven Music is proud to present the Robert Gotcher Band; a soulful, groove rock band based out of the DFW area, with southern roots and a feel good sound. Even though fans have compared them to a mixture of Train, Tom Petty, & John Mayer, most would agree they have a sound all their own characterized by a sense of “haven’t I heard this before?”

Not only does RGB lay down groovy, head bopping original tunes, but they also pull off unique takes of some great covers. Catch them live and you’ll hear songs from Train, the Beatles, Van Morrison, John Mayer, Bill Withers, and more. Along with great music, the Robert Gotcher Band puts on a fantastic show. Having a good time is the key; they simply love doing what they do.

Lyrics

Real Life Charades

Written By: Robert Gotcher

He was just seventeen
He never knew
His life could have such dreams
Until he met the only one
Who could see beyond
Everything he'd done
Now...

He's through pretending
Laying down his mascaraed
A soul in need of mending
Love says everything's okay
Time for believing
Leave behind the past mistakes
Through with pretending
No more real life charades

She had run
So far away
She never knew
Her life would be that way
But mercy came
Turned her world around
To find the place
She could stand on solid ground
(Now)

She's through pretending
Laying down his mascaraed
A soul in need of mending
Love says everything's okay
Time for believing
Leave behind the past mistakes
Through with pretending
No more real life charades

Find the place
Where fear becomes faith
Eyes will see
Hearts will be changed
With the name
of the one so full of grace
Eternity...Oh...

Through with pretending
Laying down our mascaraed
Souls in need of mending
Love says everything's okay
Time for believing
Leave behind the past mistakes
Through with pretending
No more real life charades

Sweet Clarity

Written By: Robert Gotcher

I can see
Better than before
Right out my front door
This morning
Could it be
That you have brought me here
Everything's so clear
A new dawning
Rain clouds have gone away
All I see is a brand new day

You are the sunshine after the rain
You are the clean air I'm breathing
Knowing everything is gonna be okay
The storm has dissipated
Your goodness elevated
I can see
Sweet Clarity

In the dark
No vision to be found
Can't even see the ground
Beneath me
That's when you
Take a hold of me
You become the eyes I need
And you lead me
Rain clouds have gone away
All I see is a brand new day

You are the sunshine after the rain
You are the clean air I'm breathing
Knowing everything is gonna be okay
The storm has dissipated
Your goodness elevated
I can see
Sweet Clarity
