Biography

Signal 7 is a hard rock quartet diligently designing music for the working man. Their lyrics aren’t confusing, deliberately discernable or designed to bring you to that happy place. They are descriptive frustrations of everyone’s life. The things in your head that no one hears. Why do they pull it off so well? They are hard working people and pull no punches in letting the world know how they feel and what they think about it. For you the listener it’s a great source of release after another day on the job. Their new CD “Service with a Smile” conveys this message over a hard rock beat with a similar in your face delivery.
The band began with the brothers Smitty and Jason. They would get together and play with a cousin that played drums at Smitty’s house on the weekends in the late 90’s. The brothers switched instruments and began looking for a singer. After a couple of years of not being able to find a singer, the drummer left the band. Smitty and Jason continued writing and practicing with a drum machine. In 2001 a drummer, Ross, was found through a friend that had tried out as a singer. Steve was often at practices or just hanging out and decided to join in as the singer. The band came together with a personal style and began playing shows in the area in 2003. Just as it seemed the band was headed for greatness, Ross was called to duty in Afghanistan. 18 months later he returned and the band geared up for another run. Soon after their return to the scene they were signed by a record label and headed to the studio in March of 2006. With the CD completed and an arsenal of new songs, Signal 7 is headed back to the road for a tour soon after the CD’s release.
The bands fashion style is also that of the working man. Jeans and a T-shirt and not a lot of flash, though they sometimes get more conservative if the situation calls for it. The band members have varying hobbies. Jason likes computers, Ross likes to shoot things and Steve and Smitty enjoy reading a good novel. They are all interested in creating a better music scene in their hometown area of Roanoke, VA. As Steve has said, “I think music is one of the most important things in life. A way to let out things inside, or to express things that would in any other way be difficult to express. I believe music is emotion out loud.” The band members all have a good sense of humor and like to joke around. They are friends to everyone and have a good time at whatever they do. Tool, Clutch and Helmet have been influences of every band member. Favorite bands also include System of a Down, Misfits, Ministry, White Zombie, Johnny Cash and Outkast.
With their many years as part of working society and even more years perfecting their individual style, Signal 7 is sure to be loved by anyone who has ever had controversy in their day to day lives. Music that you can relate to. Music that says what you want to say. Music that reaches your innermost thoughts and brings out that adrenalin you’ve been saving up!

Again

Written By: Signal 7

your secrets out
yes someone told me
you ran your mouth
damn not again
you lie to me
and play pretend
well I try to leave
but you caught wind
straight to my house, damn
and walked right in
well then you stripped down
damn not again
cause you my best, enemy
a cut above the rest
your always there for me cause
you my best, enemy
well I expect no less
from the best
well I see you out
and I try to blend
but you always spot me
damn not again
you cling right on, damn
and but right in
you try and pit me
against my friends
but you need a ride
just a little drunk
and I came inside
damn not again
cause you my best, enemy
a cut above the rest
your always there for me cause
you my best, enemy
well I expect no less
from the best
and I, I cant be here
I need to leave
I, I cant be here
I need to
and I, I cant be here
I need to leave
I, I cant be here
I need to leave
Yeah, you my best enemy
a cut above the rest
your always there for me cause
you my best, enemy
well I expect no less
your the best
the best
your the best

Aim

Written By: Signal 7

Gonna take this fight
give it everything
gonna run full speed
no brakes on me
cause I hate my life
and I need a change
so I let this out
cause it burns in me

got nothing to loose
you aint got nothing to loose
nothing to loose
you aint got nothing to loose
no, no, nothing to loose
you aint got shit to loose

I'm gonna get what's mine
if you use your brain
you'll get out my way
well you caint shake me

and I'll blast through you
just to hear you scream

well I've made my cut
and I bleed out loud
And it's deafening without a sound
and it's poisonous

cause I'm never full
bring it
got nothing to loose
you aint got nothing to loose
nothing to loose
you aint got nothing to loose
no, no, nothing to loose
