DuoPopRock

Stamps is a pop/disco/electro duo based out of LA featuring Houston-native, Ren Patrick, on vocals and guitar, along with Chicago-bred drummer, Adam James. After touring the country with many different artists such as Trevor Jackson, Drake Bell, Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, and playing shows with groups like One Republic and OK GO, STAMPS gained recognition online for their self-titled E.P. from major blogs such as multiple write ups from Perez Hilton, as well as BMI, etc.

Biography

Don’t mistake Stamps for your everyday catchy, contemporary, dance-inspiring pop band. Their mission is a bit deeper than that - “to write music that is fun for people, that helps them get over broken hearts and hard times.” Singer/songwriter/producer Ren Patrick and songwriter/drummer/producer Adam James first bonded 5 years ago in Los Angeles over their shared passion for music. Ren, a Texas native, studied jazz and musical theater growing up, while Adam, a Chicago transplant, has played with members of OneRepublic and OK Go in the power pop band Debate Team. He is the perfect complement to her powerhouse voice, and together they’ve just finished up on the High School Nation Tour, with Trevor Jackson, Taboo from The Black Eyed Peas, Blush and Drake Bell. When they are not on the road, they are busy writing, recording and producing songs for their new E.P. coming out this year. While you wait for them to release new music, sample their self-titled E.P., available on iTunes.

Lyrics

Lost in California

Written By: Stamps

It's always not now, hold on
We can't go, you don't know
I'm gonna make this simple
We're going to the west coast

No more wait and see, you're gonna come with me
That's how it's gonna be, whoa
No more waitin' round, we'll get out of this town
That's how it's going down, whoa

Pack your bags we're gonna go away this weekend, whoa
Don't you know there's no one else I'd rather be with, whoa

Let's go away, you meet me halfway, I can't wait
Not another minute for ya
Don't hesitate, we can ride the waves, soak up rays
Let's get lost in California
I know a place, where we, we both can stay, every everyday
Don't you keep me waiting on ya
No time to waste, let's pick up the pace, leave today
Let's get lost in California

Let's take a moment, slow down
Relax now, breathe in, breathe out

No more wait and see, you're gonna come with me
That's how it's gonna be, whoa
No more waitin' round, we'll get out of this town
That's how it's going down, whoa

Pack your bags we're gonna go away this weekend, whoa
Don't you know there's no one else I'd rather be with, whoa

Let's go away, you meet me halfway, I can't wait
Not another minute for ya
Don't hesitate, we can ride the waves, soak up rays
Let's get lost in California
I know a place, where we, we both can stay, every everyday
Don't you keep me waiting on ya
No time to waste, let's pick up the pace, leave today
Let's get lost in California

Leave today, we can go away
don't ya hesitate we're going to the west coast
Leave today, we can go away
don't ya hesitate we're going to the west coast

Let's go away, you meet me halfway, I can't wait
Not another minute for ya
Don't hesitate, we can ride the waves, soak up rays
Let's get lost in California

Let's go away, you meet me halfway, I can't wait
Not another minute for ya
Don't hesitate, we can ride the waves, soak up rays
Let's get lost in California

I know a place, where we, we both can stay, every everyday
Don't you keep me waiting on ya
No time to waste, let's pick up the pace, leave today
Let's get lost in California

Leave today, we can go away
don't ya, hesitate
Let's get lost in California
Leave today, We can go away
don't ya, hesitate
Whoa
