Biography

Alisha Dixon, vocalist, is from Manahawkin, NJ has been singing for about 10 years and writing music for about 4. "Writing, for me, is probably the best thing to happen to me. It's such an outlet for the tumultuous time early on in life. I used to only sing other people's music, but no matter how relevant the songs were to my life they were never as personal as the originals I've compiled thus far." She sang locally for most of her life in small things, never really able to get the credibility from bands as a front woman. Then she earned a spot in the Hollywood rounds in Season 7 of American Idol, and
became increasingly popular by her peers. But it was all a little too late, she had already moved on...
anticipating her new endeavor of moving to the city of Boston to attend Berklee College of Music.

Jay Marcovitz, guitar, hails from Ann Arbor, MI. He's been playing music for over 15 years, with the last 4 years performing professionally, specializing mainly in guitar and bass. He was prompted to take music lessons at the age of three after being constantly observed watching and imitating performers like Eric Clapton and John Mellencamp on television. At age ten he took up trumpet and played for three years in concert and jazz bands until he finally sank into guitar. At the age of fourteen he started forming bands and performing at shows and youth centers around the area. He eventually settled in a ten piece Rock/Ska outfit called Mad Hot Dance Hall and began playing shows in Detroit as well, while sessioning on drums and bass for many groups around town as well as performing an additional three nights a week in a jazz quintet. After gigging all throughout high school he came to Berklee College of Music to further his musical endeavors. He's now playing in Same Mistake Twice in hopes of taking it even further.

Ryan McLoughlin, Bass, is from New Haven, CT and has been playing bass since 2001. Being influenced heavily by punk rock bands such as The Clash, Ryan decided to start his own band as soon as he picked up his bass. In 2001, Ryan started his first band, Angleworm, which was a mix of punk and reggae. Between 2002 and 2008, Ryan recorded three LPs and three EPs and had the pleasure of working with Triumph of Life Records for several of those releases. In 2007 Ryan began studying bass at Berklee College of Music. In 2008, Ryan auditioned for Same Mistake Twice and played his first show with them in January 2009.

This band was created by Alisha from a bunch of
advertisements for a new band and what she wound up with is her favorite group of people at school, who later became...Same Mistake Twice.

Lyrics

GET OUT

Written By: Alisha Dixon


You are the only one for me
And I don’t care if you want me to leave
I’m not going anywhere
Just because you’re the master of my mind
Doesn’t mean I can’t open my eyes
I’m not blind

Get up Get out
No I never wanna see you again
She said you’re wrong
I’m right suffer you internal fight
With my life on my back
I walk away to never turn around
Cuz the things you say are etched into my skin

You speak and I watch in awe
The mystery bound with a tempting heart
You’re right there when I close my eyes
You told me the only thing worth having you gotta fight for
So here I am my gloves are off

Get up Get out
No I never wanna see you again
She said you’re wrong
I’m right suffer you internal fight
With my life on my back
I walk away to never turn around
Cuz the things you say are etched into my skin

The shameless lies you told to me
The act of love asphyxiated
These people are everywhere and pushing me
Now I can’t breathe anymore
