Biography

"Cranky guitars? Check. Alex Van Halen-esque drumming? Check. Vocal chops that would humiliate Chris Daughtry for the poser he is? Oh yeah." This is what Inland Empire Weekly has to say about Sundial Project, a rising hard rock band from Southern California who are making their mark on crowds with electrifying performances that have fans comparing their live shows to those of substantially higher priced arena rock bands. Comprised of four members, Sundial Project's sound is drawn from rock influences such as Staind, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Godsmack, Seether, and Silverchair; though their catchy melodies and "I cant get that song out of my head" hooks give them widespread appeal.

Sundial Project began with an ending. Nick Murray and Josh Painter left “In Absence” in the summer of 2006 to create a new band with visions of the days when rock shows and albums had great songs from beginning to end. The focus was placed on creating memorable songs with each musician contributing exceptional performances. PJ Chesney and Alex Meraz shared this same goal, and were invited to complete the band.

Sundial Project are hard at work playing local shows to build momentum for their anticipated 2008 full length album release. With recent appearances on San Bernardino’s X103.9 FM, UCLA Radio, and a host of podcasts broadcasting their songs worldwide, Sundial Project are poised to spread their music to all corners of the world, one person at a time.

In that day you went away
I can see your face
All those things you said to me
All now gone to waste

I can see you falling
I can feel you
In that day you went away
I can see your face

All this love he had to give
So much pain he couldn't live
He checked out...

He loved you more than you could know
All at once he wouldn't show
He checked out...

Feel you coming down...

For Joel. 1973-2006

Blame

Written By: JP

It took me years
for this void to leave
And now you're back
asking me to breathe
These lungs don't have
much left to spare
I'm surprised to find you care

Now what's meant
already been said
Are words a waste
when we hit the bed
I don't question
living in the past
Only question
why we didn't last

Your eyes are not the same
Everyone has that one to blame
You couldn't be there when I
called your name

You could be the day of my end...

Streetlight

Written By: JP

I'm a match and I've lost my will to burn
You can try, you can try but never learn
In that day you lose your will to see
Well, you don't know, you don't know what's me

Everything you do, you do to me
You don't know, you don't know what's me
You can't see inside this misery
You don't know, you don't know what's me

You're my friend when I see you face to face
You can turn, you can turn and walk away
In that day you lose your will to be
Well, you don't know, you don't know what's me

Drained

Written By: JP

Running through, it didn’t mean a thing
You can’t leave, with all this that you bring
These trophy cases, volunteer the worst
And mental giants, are now the food of worms

It's my life and how I'm gonna' live
Seems I've given all I have to give
What you love now seems to make me sick
It's my life and how I'm gonna' live

Drained of everything I feel no pain
Cause’ I must live, and love and die in vain
Here on this deck I’ve fallen cold and dead
Turns out life was all inside my head

Running through it didn’t mean a thing
Was all inside my head
