Biography

Strange Rebel Frequency is a recently formed musical collective based in Southern California, that plays a stripped down, heartfelt, acoustic-based alternative or "Americana" type of music with a slow, melancholic element. They have been compared to artists such as Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and even Bruce Springsteen, as well as contemporary Americana/indie artists like Wilco, Iron & Wine, and Will Oldham. They have very strong songs, a unique identity and vision, and will be a powerful and emotive live experience. Their music could have a very wide appeal.

Strange Rebel Frequency is currently not signed to any label and have no distribution deal. We released our first CD House of Four and Hearts (2006) on our own. We received many kudos for that self-produced album, which sells via CDBaby, iTunes, Rhapsody, et cetera.

We are now looking for distribution for our second self-released CD, which we expect to be completed by May 2007. More expansive, the album stretches from a full-on rocker to a Neko Case-style torch song when Maree takes to the fore on one song. Basically, we’ve got the goods. An artist can work a lifetime without ever finding a unique voice. We have that already and there is a niche audience out there that will go bonkers over our music. Now we just need a good partnership to reach those people.

Lyrics

Burn For You

Written By: David M Cross

The sky is lit and fading away
My lifeline is cascading to another place
Move me to the source of your light
Moving through the sea of the night

I only burn, I only burn for you
I only burn, I only burn for you

See a new piece of me from afar
Slow to realize just what you are
Block out the fear of what will be
I see no one else looking back at me

I only burn, I only burn for you
I only burn, I only burn for you

There's a flame inside you keep alive
Even if you've stopped trying
There's a name whispered in my sleep
Yours is the one that I keep
Your skin, it breaks my fall
In everything, in all
I only burn, I only burn for you

Stay

Written By: David M Cross

Sitting in a room without a view, all the light you took with you
I'm locked with the falling tears inside
I hear a call that's beckoning like some final reckoning
don't you feel the push and pull of this tide?

Couldn't we stay a little longer in this place
Don't look away, maybe my eyes could say the things that would make you stay

Memories released in dreams won't let me hide
The bitter tears choked back and never cried
As I look back your eyes shine like mirrors
I'm afraid these days between will turn into years

Couldn't we stay a little longer in this place
Don't look away, maybe my eyes could say the things that would make you stay
