BandRockBlues

We are a hard working Denver 4-piece group born out of the summer of 2012. We have an edgy sound that harkens back to Blues and Hard Rock, with fusions of experimental punk from the 70's. Our unique live shows invite all to participate in a positive space driven by the enjoyment of music.

Biography

Secretly Supervised, consist of Andrew Webber (Vocals), Ryan Borthick (Guitar), Dane Vernon (Bass), and Chris Morgan (Drums). We all have had a long history with music and as musicians. Music allows us to express ourselves through ways that words or actions couldn't otherwise. We can all at one point be quoted by saying that music maintains our sense of identity, our way to reconcile with our surroundings, and our sanity. From a younger age, that was only possible by listening to songs that aligned with the expressionism we sought. So one by one we learned how to play instruments that would allow us to do our own form of expressing, and with practice we were each able to transform that expression into a more raw form of emotion - what we played was how we felt, it was us.

Which brings us to the summer of 2012. We (Andy, Dane, and Ryan) at this point had musical experience together playing at open mic nights and jam sessions around Denver, but hadn't yet decided to give ourselves a name. So when an opportunity presented itself one night to play in a battle of the bands at the end of the summer, we decided it was time to just go for it. After quickly finding Chris Morgan as a drummer, the four of us began to see that how we each approached creating original music was very similar, but our influences were very different. As a result, the sound we created (and are creating) could not only transverse different genres but infuse them as well.

Lyrics

Judge Not

Written By: Andrew Webber

Avert your eyes from me, it's time for you to see;
that you go against all that you claim to stand for
it's not a family you don't act like friends to me;
this is a house of judgment, not a house of love

So judge not,
there's something in your eye my brother
don't get caught,
spreading lies about each other

you seem to hate me what do you think that you know about me
you judge without thought so what do you know
we are not all the same,
and this is not a game
this is a faith but you act like it's a club

So judge not,
there's something in your eye my brother
don't get caught,
spreading lies about each other

you know not the mind, of all of man kind
don't worry about me worry about yourself
so what is right for me, is wrong for you maybe
so be careful my friends you're driving me away

So judge not,
there's something in your eye my brother
don't get caught,
spreading lies about each other

So Called Success

Written By: Andrew Webber

You dreamt i was a millionare you dreamt i didn't have a care in the world;
and that i had a beautiful girl
You dreamt i had a company the world was laid out for me and her;
and our future was secure

Truth is that's not what i want, and it's not the path i've chosen
Truth is you've pushed me away, and our relationship is now broken

I wish the world was focused less on all this money and success and power;
and making it by the hour
I wish you would hear my voice and understood my choice and listened;
and thats the point your missin'

Now you know exactly what i want, and it's not the path you've chosen
Truth is you've pushed me away, and our relationship is now broken

You were once where I am and I am a grown man,
you should understand;
that I don't want my life planned out,
least of all by you

my time comes at my expence our relationship's so intence and shattered;
you were all thats ever mattered
It's always been this way you never heard what i had to say or care;
and thats why i'm never there

Truth is that's not what i want, and it's not the path i've chosen
Truth is you've pushed me away, and our relationship is now broken
Now you know exactly what i want, and it's not the path you've chosen
Truth is you've pushed me away, and our relationship is now broken
It's now broken
It's now broken

Sexy Music

Written By: Andrew Webber

Yeah, uhh

Why can't we talk about it,
why can't we bring it up right now,
why can't this be in normal conversation.
Sex is the course of life not something you should have to hide; Yeah

The powers that use to be,
were just as prude as can be,
refused to talk about what happens naturally.
Thats not the way that it should be, talk sexy to me baby

This country is free,
at least supposedly,
I need more than comradery.
Talk sexy to me baby; Yeah

I am elightened,
sexually heightened,
don't take that away from me.
Its is not the way it should be, talk sexy to me baby
talk sexy to me
talk sexy to me
talk sexy to me baby

Yeah

Rising Up

Written By: Andrew Webber

Well I hope mercy follows me, cause your not there when I look back;
Though I feel your eyes watching me, looking at the things I lack.

Well I'm not here for you to please,
And I mean no disrespect;
But all those things that you want from me,
I am sorry you won't get.

As I walk through your door,
Don't think me upset;
I want to understand you more,
In hopes, me you will get.

Free me from approval,
I need it no more;
Now we can feel it,
What next lies in store;

Dry your teary eyes,
Don't say we fall'n apart;
I do not despise,
This love we have is ours.

As I walk through your door, don't think me upset; I want to understand you more,
I hope, me you will someday get.

(Solo)

As I walk through your door, don't think me upset; I want to understand you more,
I hope, me you will someday get.

Well I hope mercy follows me...

Brewing Up A Storm

Written By: Andrew Webber

You see dark clouds over mountains far away, you watch so fearful of what just night lay in wait.

Don't run away you won't get very far, just run and hide and stay right where you are.

Something's brewing up a storm out there, it's time to stand and fight
Something's brewing up storm out there, let's hope we last the night.

You wait so anxious for the next piece of the plan, you don't know if we're safe or if we all are damned.

Don't run away you won't get very far, just run and hide and stay right where you are.

Something's brewing up a storm out there, it's time to stand and fight
Something's brewing up storm out there, let's hope we last the night.

(Solo)

You see dark figures they're laughing in the corner, you better grab your guns you better luck your doors

Don't run away you won't get very far, just run and hide and stay right where you are.

Something brewing up a storm out there, it's time to stand and fight
Something's brewing up storm out there, let's hope we last the night.
