Biography

Simplified expands cleverly on music that sounds familiar, but is decidedly different. Tunes trip down a trail of neatly packaged stories, chocked with innovative musicianship, classy, cool lyrics and authentic vocals. Simplified manages a unique and singular musical kingdom, shuffling from sweet ballads to guitar driven power rock songs to reggae tinged sing alongs. The magnetic quality of Simplified is anchored in authenticity, and it’s indeed this pure, uncomplicated approach to music and performance that keeps fans engaged and supportive.

Since 2004, Simplified has played thousands of shows. The band’s album, Live at the Visulite, captured the dynamic energy of a Simplified performance and the group polished tunes from the live record with the release of studio recordings, Smile and Elephant Sky both hugely popular among reviewers as well as fans. Simplified’s status as a popular power quartet garnered invitations to share the stage with O.A.R, Blues Traveler, Edwin McCain and The Wailers.

Simplified has cultivated a musical presence as well as visual statement as NASCAR Media Group’s Emmy Award winning Camp Riley directed and produced the group’s stunning videos of Home and Sugar Tree.

Never contrived or calculated, Simplified continues to cultivate a roots movement placing songs, performance and fans first. The intrinsic genuine energy of Simplified’s music raises the band above the fray, outside the ordinary, and into the future.

Lyrics

Shall We Begin

Written By: Simplified

Wake your sleepy head
It's time to shine
Get yourself dressed up
Because tonight you're mine

And it's all right
If we lose our minds sometimes
And it's all right
If we let it go tonight
Let it go tonight

Can you hear the night calling
You and I falling
Shall we begin
This place is on fire, let's take it higher
Shall we begin

Let your worries go
Put your hand in mine
Show me what's inside
Don't be shy, don't be shy

Come on baby show me what you got

Screaming At The Ceiling

Written By: Simplified

Walkin' blind and talkin' blind again
It's all right, it's all right
I want it now, I need it now and then
It's all right, it's all right
And you might begin to see your way to me
Walkin' blind and talkin' blind again

Oh can you hear me
My will is strong but it's bending
And I don't know why you keep me feeling like

Screaming at the ceiling
And I can't seem to find I can't seem to find
Where we got gone

Hanging' on and hanging' on some more
It's all right, it's all right
You look at me and we look at the floor
It's all right, it's all right
And I know you want the same as me
Hangin' on and hangin' on some more

So long so long
I'm still screaming now

Walkin' blind and talkin' blind again
It's all right, it's all right
I want it now, I need it now and then
It's all right, it's all right
And you might begin to see your way to me
Walkin' blind and talkin' blind again
