Biography

Snapkount is a rock/alternative band based out of metro Detroit that combines a tight and heavy sound with beautiful vocal melodies. Formed initially by Nathan Yake (guitar and background vocals) and Andrew Webb (drums) in early 2010, both musicians started on drums but began to move onto guitar and write their own music. Timothy Schumack (keyboard) joined in summer 2010 and much of the music for their current EP was written with these three. Nathan's younger brother, Daniel Yake (bass), was added to the mix in November 2010 before the final pieces of husband and wife pair, Nathan Bedford (guitar) and Jenny Bedford (lead vocals), came to complete the band.

In April 2011, the band recorded their first EP with Josh Sobeck (sound engineer at Northridge Church Plymouth, MI and the Crofoot in Pontiac, MI) that contains five songs with hard rock sections to soft ballads. The EP can be heard and downloaded on their facebook band page under Snapkount and can be heard on myspace.com/snapkount.

Snapkount's music can also be heard on Jango airplay. The band received high enough reviews from listeners to be put on the "Jango Top Ten" the week of December 5th- December 11th in 2011.

Snapkount comes with a strong message formed out of the band's Christian faith and has songs with honest cries from the heart. The band seeks to encourage and bless every person who hears or sees them play.

Lyrics

Outcast

Written By: Snapkount

VERSE:

Lost and staring down this empty wind
Nothing remains
But this conscience

Laid bare left alone with all this sin
Nothing remains (V2: Nothing but pain…)
Can somebody save me!
CHORUS:

Save the outcast!
I’m burning to ashes
I know I won’t last
I’m burning to ashes

When the flint ignites the flame (2nd time: When the fire turns to blaze)
Will my life be worth something?
Save the outcast
Save my life from the fire…
BRIDGE:

All my wickedness is fuel for the fire…
I’m so tired from crying
I’m so tired of dying
I need to find a place where river’s won’t run dry
Change me on the inside (x2)

My Misfortune

Written By: Snapkount

Verse 1:

See my struggle…
I won’t change my life
I can’t promise
Once upon a time…

Cut your lifeline
Feel you bleed inside
No more burden
No more 0nce upon a time…

Verse 2:
Eh,oh… you’re my misfortune…
I can’t have once upon a time.

1 This is my life
2 Can’t you see the cost…
3 There’s too much pressure
4 to bear…

Chorus:
Death comes slowly
Fear will drive your fall
Here in the final hours
You are my misfortune

You can’t breathe
But I can’t see at all…
Here in the final hours…
You are my misfortune

Outro:

Eh,Oh…you’re my misfortune… Eh,Oh…
Eh, Oh… my sweet misfortune…
Was my life worth so much more?

I must face your fate alone…
I must face your fate with blood upon my hands.
This torment deep inside my soul…

see my struggle… see my struggle

this torment deep inside my soul… see my struggle…

Was my life worth so much more than your own?

Eh,Oh My Misfortune…

False Peace (Coexist)

Written By: Snapkount

VERSE 1:
Do you love the good life?
Do you love the free for all?
Trapped in the same mind…
Co-existing and drifting along…

VERSE 2:
You reign in the good life.
You reign in the free for all.
Trapped in the same mind.
Co-existing and drifting along…
Just co-existing and drifting along…

CHORUS:
1
Go hate me for believing with all my might
won’t live a life where everything is nothing. (a life, or the life)

2
All the riches you pursued with your one track mind
were dreams spend on a life that’s worth nothing.

3
Evil cries
Serve me or die
Fire behind the walls is rising

4
So go hate me for believing with all my might
Can’t deny
This is the fall of Babylon

BRIDGE: Light vocals

FINAL CHORUS: (repeat 1,2,3)

4
Say goodnight to the city of broken lights
Can’t deny
This is the fall of Babylon

Wanted

Written By: Snapkount

VERSE 1:
I’ll gladly suffer hell to find you…
I’d plunge into the depths to free you…

CHORUS 1:
You are what I love
You are what I want

VERSE 2:
I know exactly where you’ve been
And there’s is no cost to great to win you

PRE-CHORUS:
Bleeding for my love…
I can not be far from where you are…

Can you hear the call…
Wreck the walls that come between us

Death will never separate us

CHORUS:
I am the hero
My hands fit the sword
Battle’s can’t be won without my blood.

I am the hero
Passion drives my sword
I am the hero
You are what I want…

OUTRO:
I am the hero
Passion drives my sword
Battles can’t be won without my blood
I am the hero
And you are what I want

You are what I want...
