Street Credit's self proclaimed "Dirty Rock/Reggae" keeps the crowd jumping from the moment they hit the stage. Already immensely popular in the Boston and Rhode Island college circuit, their fanbase is ever-expanding hot off the release of their debut album "Under The Radar."

Biography

Street Credit has evolved into the energetic rock-influenced reggae band it is today over the past ten years. Jon Mulshenock, Will Moehrke and Eric Milano originally founded the band in South Florida somewhere around the fall of 2003 however they have been in and out of bands together since the mid nineties. Growing up influenced heavily by early Studio One recordings, Scratch Perry and the melodic dub of the seventies has led to the bass-heavy bottomed out rhythms that is Street Credit. These infectious grooves mixed with evolving songwriting give this young band a concrete musical foundation.

Bill Farrell started playing bass for the band in the summer of 2005, and is an excellent addition bringing with him an extensive musical background that includes classical piano, lead and rhythm guitar as well as vocals which have all been funneled into technically sound, yet bouncy bass lines.

Since returning to New England, Street Credit's popularity is rapidly gaining momentum. They are filling clubs throughout Rhode Island and Boston with their energetic self-proclaimed "dirty rock/reggae" and cultivating what appears to be a very loyal fan base. Street Credit's addictive rhythms and energetic live show aided them in becoming a finalist in the coveted 2006 WBRU Rock Hunt, in which they beat out hundreds of other bands from the region. If you are a reggae fan, a rock fan, or just enjoy an energetic and original night of music, Street Credit is a band to check out.

Lyrics

On The Road

Written By: Jon Mulshenock

ON THE ROAD (CHORUS)
GOT CONTROL
BUT YOU CAN’T EVER LET GO WITH THE ONE THAT YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH THE FIRST TIME
ON THE ROAD
GOT NO HOME
BUT YOU CAN’T EVER LET GO

WELL TONIGHT’S GONNA BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT
IT’S A ONE WORLD WAY
THE ONLY WAY WE’RE GONNA MAKE A DIFFERENCE IS TO BREAK AWAY
SHE TRIED TO HOLD ME BACK AND I DON’T KNOW THAT SHE TRUSTS IN MY PAST
WHEN I’M ON THE ROAD I NEVER WILL FORGET MY HOME

(CHORUS)

WHY ARE WE THINKING THIS LASTS FOR SUCH A LONG TIME
YOU NEVER GET REASON TO THINK TWICE
THERES ONLY ONE LIFE
YOU MUST HAVE MADE JUST TO GET COMPLACENT AND YOU TRIED TO FAKE IT
THOUGH…EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU CAN MOVE SO SLOW

YOU HAD TO BREAK UP AND LEAVE IT ALL
SHE HAD TO LEAVE TOWN TO FEEL MY PAIN
YOU WENT TO MAKE UP AND TAKE MY FAULTS
AND JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT’D BE DONE SHE’S BACK AROUND

(FEEL IT) WHEN IT’S ON THE LINE
I CAN’T TAKE EVERYTHING FOR GRANTED IN THIS LIFE
(FEEL IT) WHEN IT’S ON THE ROAD
I CAN’T LOVE MY PEOPLE THAT’VE GOT NOT SOUL
(FEEL IT) WHEN IT’S ON THE LINE
I CAN’T TAKE EVERYTHING FOR GRANTED IN THIS LIFE
GOT TO GIVE IT A TRY

Back For More

Written By: Jon Mulshenock

I’M PURIFIED IF IT’S SANCTIFIED AND WHEN I TELL YOU THAT’S NOT RIGHT DON’T ASK WHY
YOU’VE GOT EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN LIFE & WHEN I TELL YOU THAT’S NOT YOURS DON’T ASK WHY
ON THE JOB WORKING 9 TO 5 AND WHEN I COME HOME DON’T ASK WHY
LOVIN’ HER FELT SO GOOD THAT IT KEEP ME BACK FOR MORE

SWEET LITTLE GIRL,
I DID YOU WRONG
I ROCK’D HER WORLD…LOV’D HER ALL NIGHT LONG
AND I’M NOT THE ONE TO KISS AND TELL

BUT LOVIN’ HER FELT SO GOOD THAT IT KEEP ME BACK MORE
SHE KEEPS ME BACK FOR MORE (CHORUS)
SHE KEEPS ME BACK FOR MORE 2x

(CHORUS)

SWEET LITTLE GIRL I DID YOU WRONG
I ROCK’D HER WORLD…LOV’D HER ALL NIGHT LONG
CAN’T BE WEAK & CAN’T BE BEAT
I KNOW WHAT YOU WERE DOING LAST WEEK
IT’S TEARING UP MY HEART INSIDE
WON’T KEEP ME BACK FOR MORE

(CHORUS)

Goes Around

Written By: Jon Mulshenock

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND (CHORUS)
THERE’S NOTHING TO STOP IT NOW
I’M GOING DOWN FOR WHAT I’VE DONE
THERE’S NOTHING TO STOP IT NOW

SAME OLE’ THING…ALL YOU’VE GOT TO BLAME IS YOU
CAUSE’ SOMETIMES YOU PULL IT
ONE DAY YOU’LL LOSE
WHEN YOU’VE GOT TO CALL HER UP AND SAY
THE TRUTH MUST HURT
SOMETIMES I PRAY YOU FORGIVE ME THAT I WAIT AROUND
YOU BET LOVE BETTER HAVE A STRONG ARM
AND IT’S ABOUT TIME YOU START TO GET IT RIGHT ON
NOW IT WON’’T BE LONG YOUR HOME A MINUTE TOO LATE
CAN TELL HOW YOU WANT IT AS YOU TAKE MORE AND MORE
BUT YOUR PLACE…WHEN YOU GET HOME…AIN’T RIGHT

(CHORUS)

YOU BLAME IT ON THE MEEK AND EVERYTHING IS WRONG BASED UPON YOUR DECISION
TRY AND STOP THE ADDICTION AS YOU BUILD MORE AND MORE DISTRACTIONS
YES I BELIEVE I’M GONNA BREAK AWAY AND GET AWAY FROM HERE
CAN’T LET IT GET INSIDE OF YOU
I’M BEGGIN’ THE LEADERS TO START AND SPREAD THE TRUTH
BUT THEY STILL CAN’T GET IT RIGHT
CAN TELL HOW YOU WANT IT AS YOU TAKE MORE AND MORE
BUT YOUR PLACE…WHEN YOU GET HOME…AIN’T RIGHT

YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND SEE YOUR REFLECTION
EVERYTHING IS RIGHT…AND THAT’S WHERE YOUR DEAD WRONG
THE WOMAN WANTS TO START A RELATION
THAT’S THE TIME I HAD TO MOVE ON
I CAN’T SLEEP…CAN’T BE ME
WAKE UP AT HER PLACE STRAIGHT START TO LEAVE
I CAN TELL THAT SHE LIKES IT WHEN I KNOW THAT SHE’S GONNA RIDE ME TONIGHT
BUT THAT DOESN’T MAKE IT RIGHT
I KNOW SHE LOOKS NICE
THAT DOESN’T MAKE IT RIGHT

LIVIN’ TWO WORLDS ONE WAY
IT’S GOT TO COME STRAIGHT FROM YOUR HEART
TWO WORLDS ONE WAY
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

(CHORUS) 3x
