Biography

Rubber Tramps formed on a cold night in January of 2008 when they took stage at 1982 in Gainesville, FL. This performance was the first time the four ever actually played together. Singer Dan Sutphin's former band had split ways right before the show, so he and soon-to-be Rubber Tramps' bassist Ben Thompson made some phone calls and convinced drummer Sam Einsohn and guitarist Ryan Murray to play the gig. The show was well received by the audience, so the quartet decided to press on. They spent the next few months writing songs and playing shows around town.

After seeing them perform, guitarist/keyboardist Avi (Toorge) Toorgeman asked to join the band. In the summer of 2008 , the newly-rendered quintet put together a studio and recorded they're first demo.

They recorded eight tracks for the demo, only to release five of the songs with the first single being a catchy, epic of a song called "Waves," and the second being a ballad-like song of heartache and loss called "Waltz for Mary."

Lyrics

Waves

Written By: Rubber Tramps

Prone to cycles, circles and currents
changing with the wind
no place to stand in choosing not to

swim (we're slowly sinking)
swim (we're slowly sinking)
swim (we're slowly sinking down)

and we're building up
to break back down
we're standing up
to sit back down
we're born to live
living to die
we're told to love
while learning to lie

drones to follow the beating of a drum,
trends and fashion--pathway to the sun
short to worship stale celebrity and

now (we're slowly sinking)
now (we're slowly sinking)
now (we're slowly sinking down)

and we're building up
to break back down
we're standing up
to sit back down
we're born to live
living to die
we're told to love
while learning to lie

breaking away now (away on our own)
breaking away now (away all alone)
breaking away now (away on our own)
breaking away

and we're building up
to break back down
we're standing up
to sit back down
we're born to live
living to die
we're told to love
while learning to lie
