A mix of Radiohead, Thrice, Incubus and Muse, with "that Hamilton rock sound."

Biography

In December of 2011, Mike Dojcsak contacted Evan Bowers over a Kijiji ad
that Bowers had posted, seeking new musicians to collaborate with.
After practicing acoustically, the two decided to enlist Erik
Thorkildsen to play drums for Hamilton, Ontarios newest Alternative
Rock band Still Life. The three wrote and practiced tirelessly, and in
May of 2012, they travelled to Cobourg, Ontario to work with Adam Newcomb of Newcomb Studios who would record, mix, and master their first EP.



With an official launch in September of 2012, the groups first EP,
Page One gained much notoriety around the Southern Ontario music scene
for its wide range of dynamics and mix of Hard and Soft Alternative
Rock. This interesting sound, coupled with a hard-working attitude, had
them playing with other Southern Ontario bands such as The Reason,
Lifestory:Monologue, Lambs Become Lions, and many more. Widely compared
to the likes of Radiohead, Thrice and Incubus with that Hamilton Rock
sound, Still Life gained themselves two nominations at the Hamilton
Music Awards in 2012.


In early 2013, Still Life added
Graham King into the mix as their new bass player. With King acting as a
fresh mind in the writing process, the group continued to collaborate
with much forward momentum. In April of 2013, Still Life went back to
Newcomb Studios to begin work on their new full-length album, "Lost in
Orbit." This album marks the band at their most developed point yet,
with no signs of slowing down. Lost in Orbit is now available on iTunes,
Bandcamp, and many more.

Lyrics

Lost and Found

Written By: Evan Bowers

There’s songs in my head I’ve never sung
And words in my heart I’ve never heard
And places I will go but never gone
I’ve got a feeling that I’m never going on

All the places that I dreamed of I’ll never call my own
All the questions never answered will all be left alone

Cause I’m not waiting on miracles
Running in circles
Digging these endless holes
Running around, yeah
Til I’ve been lost and found

There’s songs in my head I’ve never learned
And words in my heart I’ve never heard
And places I will go but never gone
I’ve got a feeling that I’m never going on

All the places that I dreamed of I’ll never call my own
All the questions never answered will all be left alone

Cause I’m not waiting on miracles
Running in circles
Digging these endless holes
Running around, yeah
Til I’ve been lost and found

Running to the edge
Waiting for my whole life, to pass me by
I can’t fall asleep, yeah

Cause I’m not waiting on miracles
Running in circles
Digging these endless holes
Running around, yeah
Til I’ve been lost and found

Forget Tomorrow

Written By: Evan Bowers

Rose,
I can feel your thorns
I can feel a noose that tightens around my neck
And light,
I can see your eyes
I can see a piercing blinding stare

Cause I’ve been around your world
I’ve been down these roads
Take me to higher ground
Just take me higher

Life,
Empty as the air
A heart without a care don't give in now
Sight,
Visions of the end
Life without a friend don't give in now

Cause I’ve been around your world
I’ve been down these roads
Take me to higher ground
Just take me higher

Break Free

Written By: Evan Bowers

I've got a glowing heart that shines through, through all the things I've done.
I've got a place to find my way through, but I'm not the only one.
I wanna tear away the pages and throw 'em out to the sea.
But I can never run away now, it's just not up to me.

Let's go in the morning, we'll find out what this means.
Let's go in the morning, we'll find a place to be.

Help me break free, I'm broken as can be.
Help me break free, I'm broken as can be.
Yeah, I need some help.
Please, come home back to me.

I've got a soul that burns a way through, through all the things I've won.
I've got a memory of each day; I'm not the only one.
I wanna tear away the pages and throw 'em out to the sea.
But I can never look away now, it's just not up to me.

Let's go in the morning, we'll find out what this means.
Let's go in the morning, we'll find a place to be.

Help me break free, I'm broken as can be.
Help me break free, I'm broken as can be.
Yeah, I need some help.
Please, come home back to me.

Today, today. No, we can never walk away.
