Biography

Souleye and Sleepyhead are a new innovative duo that create a juxtaposition of sounds. Sleepyheads jazzy melodic bass driven beats form the skeleton of their structure that Souleye uses to introduce a conscious message through his fluid, natural flow. The resulting sound could be described as upbeat, smooth lucid music that promotes an energy as unique as the two creators. Both originally from Massachusetts they were brought together after each one had already began on their own path with music. Sleepyhead started reading music at the age of seven, evolving his foundation by experimenting with a sampler/sequencer and turntables, creating live mixes that where released on tape cassettes and handed out on Phish tour.

Souleye originally picked up the mic in high school and hasn’t put it down since. He began writing, rapping and freestyling when he was fourteen, discovering his soul’s sound before he was twenty. Souleye formed The Transcendent Alliance in 2002, a collaboration with other conscious hip-hop artists, releasing an album entitled “Soul Sessions” that received radio play from Massachusetts to San Antonio, Texas. After the release he began concentrating on his career, recording his first solo album in 2003 called “Flexible Morality”. The following year he released his second album “UniverSoul Alchemy”, selling 2000 copies out of his back pack. Souleye has stepped on stage many times as a solo artist, from New England to Northern California, Having the honor to perform on stage with groups such as STS9 and Granola Funk Express helping to increase his fan base across the country.

These days full of change fuel the artist to go far beyond the expectations of the masses. With the power of Unity and Peace Souleye knows that love is the only home there is. Sleepyhead strives to create a abundantly growing force that not only creates powerful positive music but extends out to the local communities. In a genre that’s bombarded with negative messages for youth, Souleye comes through with powerful, positive and enlightening messages that are bound to infuse you with love and light. Sleepyhead a natural born musician, and well rounded music listener is what some would say the brains behind the operation, creating the basic blue print in which these two energies gives birth to a new and refreshing form of music, a new incarnation of the soul of hip-hop.

Paying Dues

Written By: Mario Treadway (Souleye)

Paying Dues

Verse 1

Thank you for giving me all that I have every thing in my life every answer ?
I heard there calling us back “when” I heard them Laughing,
Added up the lump sum living in a kingdom,
Watching my kid grow slowly as i dance in the twilight of night,
With my wife by my right,
What a righteous feeling time for the healing,
An as i write this down,
Im thinking of the whole world spinning around,
Counter Clock wise, lives watch out for the rip curl,
We keep faith in this hard World,

(Chorus)

Got a Vision set a Goal, You have to keep on going,
Stick to a plan find Routine Now that path is Chosen,
Through out our lives where going to climb until we finally make it, (repeat)

Verse 2

Keep Climbing I guess that's what they said,
It’s up hill for the rest of our lives,
Since we left our beds, Walking up to the stairs ready to face this, Stair at the infinite Light in the spaces, In-between here an Now,
The holy circuit seem smurken five dollars at the circus,
Where all bounded by the blood in our bones,
Have visions in our Hearts,
Some write them in Poems

(Chorus)

Got a Vision set a Goal, You have to keep on going,
Stick to a plan find Routine Now that path is Chosen,
Through out our lives where going to climb until we finally make it, (repeat)

Verse 3

Who did the chosen depends on who’s shoes you in.
Where on the ride of our life so let’s begin,
As the revolution comes to an end,
We feel the change.
An all those times that We’ve spent with our Friends,
They tend to blend,
In a mixing pot of Such and Such,
Who said it wasn’t what it was I know you saw it,
We all alive in this Concrete forest, So many different people
Don’t be up set if I forget your name it’s bigger then that any way.
Im talking gigantic an you and I are only one little huge tiny piece,
To the whole meaning

(Chorus)

Got a Vision set a Goal, You have to keep on going,
Stick to a plan find Routine Now that path is Chosen,
Through out our lives where going to climb until we finally make it, (repeat)

Title : Night Owl

Verse 1

It’s three in the morning and im not sleeping yet,
I don’t have to im Nocturnal, but i’ll be truthful i take a whole lot
of vitamins to stay youthful, I eat at Whole Foods and mostly
all my foods Organic, I care about the temple that i live in,
Light an incense something made this It wasn’t me i won’t claim it,
Watch the wave of Fame hit, splash away the pavement,
Leave with what you came with, Never know your exit
Doesn't really matter cause your already connected,
Fears are just illusions that try to make you reckless,

Take the four letter word Fear that's False, Evidence, Appearing Real,

(Chorus)

There’s no reason to be hopeless, help is right there,
There's no lost an found, if it’s missing you will find it,
I guarantee that every season is meaningful even in the freezing cold,
When things seem Miserable, Grab your coat lets go,
No time to waste when the race is on,
I could care less about what place I finish in hip hop no retiring,
When making music for the world and it’s environment.


Verse 2

Imagine Love as a river passing through angles as they flew,
Over head as I drew, and as i draw, Distant land’s i feel my heart upon my hand,
Beat take command, I just had a sip of Green tea ten commandments mixed with
some Yerba Mate can you stand it,
Fear of a what flat planet they back handed,
The mother of creation and i can’t stand it, but still standing
Not on my own because im with the Holy Ghost,
Heard tales of dynamic dimensions like Telos,
two thousand seven and eight, pull up the van we’ll be late,
Im not guessing at all i’d rather freestyle,
And bounce around the room like a bunch of heady dready kids,
Study herbal medicine think of all the benefits,
From Venezuela to Venice Beach and Montana,
Alaska Jamaica and Alabama

(Chorus)

There’s no reason to be hopeless, help is right there,
There's no lost an found, if it’s missing you will find it,
I guarantee that every season is meaningful even in the freezing cold,
When things seem Miserable, Grab your coat lets go,
No time to waste when the race is on,
I could care less about what place I finish in hip hop no retiring,
When making music for the world and it’s environment.

Verse 3

Never trade it in, Sink to the depths of salvation,
Channel surfing serves no purpose rather be surfing,
Don’t you know that, Interaction
It’s your life my life our life one love one world one day,
Get carried away, Im a Taurus man with the force to expand,
Give what i can, can a man give enough got a plan an Im soaking it up,
I don’t need any rum in a cup or the coke in the club,
Rather be out in the sun at a Festy, living with a family,
Snuck right through that fence and sold my cd,
They tried to catch me they can’t find me,
Now im out just dance to the beat

Verse 4

Stop for a minute let’s breath and think about,
Small town shows being held in Minneapolis, Massachusetts,
Asheville, Ontario an Houston, All around the globe there Music,
Even in the most remote spots, You know they got some hip hop,
Healing arts, pulling out those tarot cards,
In the lot or the park wide awake three o’clock
Spreading love and peace
New Guinea to Long Beach.....

Inner Space

(Chorus)

Where do you go I thought I’d Leave a little picture,
A frozen moment that was captured of you Living,
In this world it’s hard some times when you wake up,
Wake up,,

Verse 1

Good Morning Sun let’s start the day,
Got a good good feeling and my hearts a blaze,
I don’t ever want to be the one running away,
So when i sit think then i got something to say,
I’ll never let a day pass bye,
It’s hard to survive off a nine to five,
Or a eight to four,
Or a five to three, Im talking live is reality,
How we ever gonna really be heavenly,
To all my people on the right where not gonna die
To all my people on the left fighting for there last breath,
Living in the Land of the Lost way before time even had,
A meaning equal Librium, Let’s dance to the beat through
A Vibration.

(Chorus 2)

Oh don’t go with out me Don’t go Im scared please stay,
The signs have been painted on the walls today,
The Children are crying in desperation,
Tears are falling for mother nature,
Sure Ethel be a better land when we finally arrive but for Now let us cherish,
What here holding inside, As Simple as a look in the eye,
Or a glance at the moon while it’s floating on Bye.

Verse 2

Got a Open Heart, Give an open mind,
Got to love one another during hard times,
Don’t live your life in Rewind,
gonna make it to the top and Recline,
Where all birds of a feather now,
I burn sage right before i dedicate a page, Sink in to a database,
Target Audience, I know it’s all of them we can all live in Inner Space
What’s that really mean ?
I don’t want beef, I don’t even want to wear,
The Sneakers on my feet,
Trade in all the Concrete and switch it with a Calm Breeze,
Ive got countless amounts of names of companies,
I could tell you a couple, But there really the same,
I don’t want to be the one that has to go and tell the people,
That there doing something wrong in there life,
I would rather be the one that leaves it in the hands of love,
So when they find it they know that its right
A matter of fact to fallow a map is truly an act on how to find your self,
Center it and get on back, back to back,
With a positive day that’s the monologue liven life in the hands of a God.

(Chorus 2)

Oh don’t go with out me Don’t go Im scared please stay,
The signs have been painted on your walls today,
The Children are crying in desperation,
Tears are falling for mother nature,
Sure the’ll be a better land when we finally arrive but for Now let us cherish,
What here holding inside, As Simple as a look in the eye,
Or a glance at the moon while it’s floating on Bye.

(Chorus)

Where do you go I though’t I’d Leave a little picture,
A frozen moment that was captured of you Living,
In this world it’s hard some times when you wake up,
Wake up,,

Chorus:

Turn the pages, Time to make a new move, Learn your lessons, Time too find the right groove, Pay attention and you will break through that wall that always seems to hold you. (2x)

Verse 1

We’ve got to have our confidence built, All of us, It doesn’t matter what religion you call your self, Be free from your own minds inhibition, You speak knowledge then of course I’m going to come and listen, liven gives me a reason for why I’m fighting, writing instead of punching, our shooting drugs, we’ve got to rise above, Everyone all of us, It’s the same color blood, brother can you ever see what you really did, Some say it’s over now so long but I’m a keen standing with my heart beating so strong, A cold storm came but iI brought some warm heat, A lost man found peace herding his sheep.

Chorus:

Turn the pages, Time to make a new move, Learn your lessons, Time too find the right groove, Pay attention and you will break through that wall that always seems to hold you. (2x)

Verses 2

Dream Warrior walk on that right road, Chose it, make your movements, Never loose it, Stay Lucid, get infused in the music, boost it up, let them know that they have everything and its assembling as soon as amends is made to the earths veins, Dragons live inside the caves and hide away, fantasies of mans minds but minds made the maze, In a corn field blaze, fire burns the pages, It’s inertia, like synergy generosity that gently sets a seed inside the sentence you can read it mistake it and take it as you will, like when you where younger and could play the game.

Chorus:

Turn the pages, Time to make a new move, Learn your lessons, Time too find the right groove, Pay attention and you will break through that wall that always seems to hold you. (2x)

Verse 3

We all start at the bottom to get to the top of it, bit by bit, each inch is a step towards those basic goals of balanced souls, so what you know? And what you gonna do to put back in the bowl, pack in the coal, burning the fuel, lets move, what we gonna go do is break though the cascade, the sun light’s got to go and hit the right way, what a wonderful world that where living in , sliding in and out of it and ignoring ignorance, here we go kind of like a sudden touch of vertigo, growing up, more or less, eyes closed wake up then all of a sudden it seems a little more clear.

Chorus:

Turn the pages, Time to make a new move, Learn your lessons, Time too find the right groove, Pay attention and you will break through that wall that always seems to hold you. (2x)

Left Alone

Title: Left Alone
Artist: Souleye

Verse 1:

Satisfaction is always guaranteed, whether you walking on land or floating over the Ocean.
Musically I’ve written words that carry me through the everglades of time,
Your page a Galaxy,
Sophisticated
I saw a fist I saw it raise,
it was in hatred, Gaia vs Satan,
My mind is contemplating,
It’s funny how we all related,
started as a seed an then a dream,
An years later, we all come together again, The world of life it seems to spin inside an endless circle,
The laws of virtue, Let it ascend,
We all are innocent, They’ve got us confused on how to live, What really went wrong, I call for Peace an Love, an use music as meditation,
write it in your song,
That’s the healing of a Nation,
It’s not a secret or hard to find,
It’s your Soul breaking free from a human paradigm.

Chorus:

She sings us letters, and Little la la byes..
Beauty my friends is always with in you
Your deep feelings can save you and guide you,
No disguise will ever truly hide you,
Beauty my friends is with in you,
Beauty my friends is with in you..

Verse: 2

It’s daily rapping that is powered by adrenaline, focused on a lotus that's heaven sent, I turned the card ace face up, you can’t blame any one but yourself, Filthy rich could mean rotten in wealth, Pardon my speech, the thought has been dealt,
A part a my heart is categorized as a carnival,
See you latter im going in to the zone, farther look your small child is a man, Slowly on his own he had to formulate his plan,
Perception is a boundary until you take a stand,
Feet deeply rooted and planted to hold your OM,
Analyzation of your imagination, Free Spirit, liven to know the knowledge of the un-know, Word Lyric, powerful like a hieroglyphic,
See the sun as it’s setting like it’s soaking in to the sea,
Cycles of Energy.

Chorus:

She sings us letters, and Little la la byes..
Beauty my friends is always with in you
Your deep feelings can save you and guide you,
No disguise will ever truly hide you,
Beauty my friends is with in you,
Beauty my friends is with in you..

Verse: 3

We shall never ever stop this music it is created, By sacred ancient beings,
If seeing is believing got to know what you believing or you won’t be seeing, Simplicity in motion, I can see the beauty in your eyes when we are talking, Often just sparking a small conversation, visions, of a vacant place, To lay naked, underneath a blanket, Thank the time that i have as a poet that can rap, Know my place in the universe, an keep it versatile,
Situations they always change like my pages,
An preparation for that mystery is Amazing,
To play the game of life it’s fun to know what you are facing, facing all your phases, Dancing in the Matrix, I wear an Amethyst stone as a necklace see through the mist of the morning with a smile.

Ohm Word Bound

Written By: Mario John Treadway


Verse 1

Honest and full of Confidence,
I call to all the people who are living in establishments,
Monuemental movements, Home word bound,
Words break down walls created in our minds,
I have illusions, hard daze confused kid,
Confucius, It's fusion the Love movement, Come On,
Put the pharmies away, I'd love to be a farmer but it's hard these days,
When where living in limits, where not in outer space where in it, Yep,
Pause while I look at the stars, see reflections, smile at the present,
Monkeys in a bucket, We love it live in a ball of wisdom,
Quickly make your decisons,
I'm just a basket weaver,
Dream catcher threw a penny in the, Oh well,
See that music is a healing Art,
Relax and, Be Well,
Where given these gifts an it's these gifts we go give,
From the Spirit of the Earth and the Soul of the Kids. "sing it"

Verse 2

I've got a good feeling, I know it, I see the beauty it's flowing,
Golden Rays of light are shining on our door steps,
Just a few thoughts from Souleye the Martian,
Im marching along, walking on a road,
Thinking out loud I am finally close, Reaching the center,
Toward something that glows, It's like Yoga threw a flow,
Ancient arithmetic, mystic a normal kid, who's connecting the glyphs,
Which is why I meditate before i go an write this,
Excellent Measurements of times that we have spent,
One kind we all arrived from a higher sense a million smiles on earth,
As it is in Heaven where fighting our Brethren we need to be Breathing,
And mending this is my intention created through three forms of intuition,
Mind body and Soul, thats the expedition, A simple walk through memory lane,
Stay focused and motivated yea we've got to maintain. "what"

Verse 3

So as I'm walking down the road I'm thinking this,
Pull the Omens out the Air, There is something in the Mist,
I could close my eyes and feel that this is close as it gets,
See tonight the Black Flys, I'm simplifying the rhyme,
By breaking the puzzle pieces,

Verse 4

Bounce back you know truly got to get it, While we be riding in on
The Mother ship to Zion, We planing out a strategy take your time in Life,
Be patient an you will finally see, Your spine is a cord to the Earth,
There is a reason why it rhymes with Divine,
Vines are wrapping up around my Arms,
In the mist of the morning I was writing a song,
Switching words up for people make them sing along,
Life is Long, lets start to manifest Peace,
The beast is you if your not going inside to fight the beast,
We all must reach the same point,
To be able to transcend, When I am seventy I hope to be a kid again,
Sitting on a park bench, Harmonize with old friends,
All done the hustling,
Like Simon and Garfunkel lent me there pen to write,
A warrior till the day death dies.
