Biography

“Rock music doesn’t come much more radio friendly...” – San Diego Union/Tribune

In a day and age when musicians feel the pressure to create the next big thing. Scorch smiles, picks up the guitar and places you totally responsible for your upcoming reaction. He knows what you want to hear whether you’re a headbanger, club hopper, bible thumper, or a “ I don’t even really listen to music, but I like this,” walking drone. Good songs, period! These are songs you can relate to. These are songs that include you, no matter who YOU are.

Influenced by the singer/songwriters of the 1970's, Scorch writes better than good songs, then delivers them in a voice that could stop an all out alien invasion. It’s no wonder why his CD “Pop With A Twist” was nominated for “Best Pop Album” at the San Diego Music Awards and thousands of copies have been purchased since he released it, on his own, in the summer of 2001.

Scorch has played county fairs, clubs and bars. He had his song “OK” featured on ESPN’s coverage of the Rock & Roll Marathon, sang the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium, makes countless elementary school appearances, and he hosts a weekly fundraiser for homeless youths when he’s not on the road.

People in places such as Florida, Ohio, Nevada, Arizona and his home state of California participate with campfire passion during live performances. “People love to sing along to my songs and just as luck would have it, they’re spread out all over the place. So I’ll just keep playing until I’ve covered every state, Nicaragua, Never-neverland and Lake Gitche Gumee."

When Scorch makes a fan, he makes a FAN! One female fan on vacation from Ohio went as far as riding a unicycle a mile and a half, in rush hour traffic, to the station of San Diego’s #1 morning radio show just so they would play her favorite singer/songwriter on the air. They did and the listeners responded, "Smash!" Watch for the “Unicycle Radio Promotional Tour” coming to a city near you.

Lyrics

Let Love Pass

Written By: Scorch

We said forever with the conviction of our youth
We’ll say we tried our hardest even though it’s not the truth
We know we were happy ‘cause we were for quite some time
But when life gets in the way forever is hard to find

And what I see are the pictures and the smiles that didn’t last
Framed by the reflections that celebrate our past
And now our world could be nothing more
Than a ball of broken glass
Just pieces of you and me if we let love pass

If we let love pass let love pass
If we let love pass let love pass

We said we’d never change that look within our eyes
But now we’re drowning in the tears we would not cry
We both keep thinking that the other one should know
We stopped asking the questions so the answers all went home

And all I see are the pictures and the smiles that didn’t last
Framed by the reflections that celebrate our past
And now our world could be nothing more
Than a ball of broken glass
Just pieces of you and me if we let love pass

If we let love pass let love pass
If we let love pass let love pass

Yes our world could be nothing more
Than a ball of broken glass
Just pieces of you and me if we let love pass

All Day

Written By: Scorch

Window lights the stage below giant circle rises slow
Traffic jam surrounds her as she’s waking
Elevator beat the stairs up above you no one cares
How you feel or what it is your thinking

All day, all day, all day, she waits for her life to change
All day, all day, all day, she waits for her life to change

Bathing in a cup of joe excitement never came so slow
As he stops to look both ways then crosses safely
Watching others pass the time bitter lemon killed the lime
And the seed of discontent sat by so bravely

All day, all day, all day, he waits for his life to change
All day, all day, all day, he waits for his life to change

Smoking gun is shooting guilt stalling car below the hill
Level was the roadway they were paving
Dance around a 6-foot hole filled with hope that never grows
Empty are the pennies they were saving

All day, all day, all day, they wait for their lives to change
All day, all day, all day, they wait for their lives to change

When nothing happens who is the one that you blame
When nothing happens who is the one that you blame
We can’t complain if we didn’t change anything

How About Me

Written By: Scorch

I could be the wizard of con and craft a clever lie
Build you up and watch you die when the curtain gets torn away
Or I could be a cowardly cat and always run and hide
Or stand-alone just paralyzed by what your thoughts might be

I’d rather be me how about me

Here I am what did you expect
Something more or something less than what it is you see
Here I am what did you expect
Something more and nothing less when all you get is me

How about me how about me

I never want to lead you on and tell you all is fine
Hold it in then make you cry ‘cause sometimes we’ll disagree
And I don’t want to be the one to promise you the sun
Then the clouds roll in and I am gone ‘cause you wouldn’t talk to me

Talk to me talk to me

Here I am what did you expect
Something more or something less than what it is you see
Here I am what did you expect
Something more and nothing less when all you get is me

How about me how about me

It’s harder than you think to give you all of my everything
It’s harder than you think is it enough to make you happy

How about me how about me

X2( CHORUS)

How about me how about me
