Biography

Seeking Through Silence was formed in 2004 with the intent to change the world around. They are ready to let their music speak to all those who are willing to listen.
They started off as a 5 piece band led by two lead female vocalists and hit the studio in the summer of 2006 to begin recording an album. While the project was still in its infancy, one of the two leading members decided to bow out, leaving Kate center stage. The project took a few other unsuspected turns but the remaining 4 members pushed through. With the help of engineer and producer Ryan Sellick at Northshore Recording, they completed their first ever full length album titled “Promises”.
Like many other local bands, they have played and continue to play live constantly in hopes to grab the attention of new fans. They have played persistently throughout New Jersey, parts of New York, and have toured all the way up to Massachusetts. They have played venues such as Starland Ballroom and Manhattan’s Knitting Factory and Webster Hall. They have also seen their fair share of competitions while battling up against some of the Tri-State’s top acts. They have always ranked high and walked away with new fans that followed.
STS is both a studio and a live band. They work their hardest to create a solid song full of emotive melodies, hard hitting guitars and driving beats. When it comes time to track down a song, they spend all the time needed to capture the mood they hear between their ears. On stage, they are energetic and captivating; cheering their audience on as they all sing along. Their songs are powerful and moody. They move through you and leaving you wanting more. They are a band of 4 currently taking over their home of NJ and ready to take on the world.

Lyrics

Only Nine

Written By: Will Lewis- Seeking Through Silence

I can read you from what you do
What comes next is just up to you
I can feel you all around to
Lock you gaze on my review

My hands around your throat to choke
Watch and wait for this to grow
These cold hands go for the kill
My will set out to get its fill

CHORUS:
Only nine

Take the lead take your commandment
That binds these hands from what they’re meant
Movements controlled by what’s unseen
Please be quiet, keep him sleeping

This callous soul is all I know
My every thought brings me to
Hate the fake but not the faker
Shut your eyes and meet your maker

CHORUS

From the belly of the beast I write you
From the stomach of the one they know so well
From the belly of the beast I write you
From the stomach of the one they know so well
I write you, I write home

CHORUS

Promises

Written By: Will Lewis- Seeking Through Silence

And its easier to mindlessly choose apathy
Attached between the meaning of all that I am
But want to be more

CHORUS:
Promises don’t condemn
These words I say
Despite who I was yesterday
Always

And I will let you down
The sound of these words are renowned
Bow this head and shut my eyes
I cry to live a better life

CHORUS:

Always...

Take this away, not be the same
All I ask is for this chance
Take this away, not be the same
All I ask is for this chance

Always

You matter to me
And I don’t feel I’ve shown this to you before today
And that I why I need, I need, I need
To change, to change
To show you, to show you
These

CHORUS:

Always...
