Singing Biscuit

BandFolkAcoustic

We take history, science, wordplay, and humor and blend it all into a tasty treat complete with sweet harmony vocals, solid rhythms and soulful picking!

Biography

We have been under each other's influence for about
five years, with over 200 years combined performing
experience among us. In May 2006 we released our second full length CD: THE COSMIC REEL

Influences: Laura Love, Louvin brothers, McGarrigle sisters, Will McLean, Iris DeMent, Nick Drake, Flying Burrito Brothers

We are on a mission to bring old and new, soul and
hardtack, humor and phathos together in a divine
harmony. We have been accused of writing "old" songs, which we take as the highest of compliments.

Lyrics

Sunflowers at 5

Written By: Carrie Hamby

Sunflowers at 5
A certain time of day and year
The perfect time to be alive
The perfect time to be alive
Right now, right here
I was out of my mind
Distracted by things to be
Little details I’d left behind
The moment lost on me
Suddenly you appear
On the corner of nowhere, saying
We are both here, we can be everywhere
Red light turns to green,
The traffic moves on ahead
Round the corner and up the street
Rays of gold fill my head
Sunflowers at 5
A certain time of year and day
Colors fading yet so alive
Here is where you’ll stay
