Biography

Tash: A rich combination of styles blended seamlessly and held together with insightful lyrics that will smash into your chest and send your head spinning into a long awaited dreamlike spell.

The lead singer and songwriter Tash Maloney started off as an aspiring children's author/illustrator. Realizing that her stories were too on edge, she bought a guitar. Later, Tash teamed up with Greenjeans Studios and recorded her debut album as a solo artist with hopes to be taken seriously by other musicians. After selling many CDs, and being featured artist at indiemusic.com radio and on Q102.3 FM out of Woodward OK, Tash knew she had to keep the momentum going. She set out in search of dedicated, ego and drug free musicians who could live up to the CDs current status. Tash finally found the dream team she'd been searching for. The average age of the band members is 22, yet they have 21 years of combined music experience. With every member bringing to the project an open mind, fun demeanor, and a love of opposing genres, they clicked right off. Teaming with Ben Underwood to help co-write the music for her new EP, Tash has ventured into yet uncharted musical waters.

Band members are: Tasha Maloney- vocals, Ben Underwood- bass, Tyler Paul- drums, Charlie Nusser- guitar, Kyle Harmon- Guitar

Tash plans to release EP’s every 8 months, so check out tashmusic.net or myspace.com/tashmaloney often for new music and videos.

Lyrics

SHINE

Written By: TASHA MALONEY

NEW DOORS OPEN FOR YOU
AS FATE TURNS YOU FROM MINE
A PHONE CALL's THE ASSURANCE
WE CAN’T ESCAPE TIME
WHICH MEASURES NEW BEGININGS
THROUGH BEGININGS OF THE ENDS
MANY WILL TEACH YOU
BUT FEW CAN YOU CALL FRIENDS

THE WORLD IS STARVING FOR YOUR WIT
AND CHARISMATIC SMILE
YOUR STUBBORN WAYS WILL FIGHT AWAY
MONSTERS TO A CHILD
FILLING THEM WITH PEACE AGAIN
SO MAYBE THEY CAN SLEEP WITHIN
AND FIND THEIR DREAMS TO DO LIKE YOU DO

I WANT YOU TO SHINE
I WANT YOU TO SHINE
BRIGHTER THAN ME

I WANT YOU TO GLOW
FOR THE FACES YOU KNOW
AND THE FACES YOU DON’T

I WANT YOU TO SHINE

TIC TALKING TO YOU PICTURE
MAKES ME SMILE FROM TIME TO TIME
I TELL YOU ALL THE DAYS EVENTS
BEFORE I SAY GOODNIGHT
AND SAY ANOTHER PRAYER
BEFORE FINDING YOU IN DREAMS
THEN AWAKE TO GREET OUR MEMORIES
ENTWIND WITH COFFEE STEAM

THE WORLD IS STARVING FOR YOUR WIT
AND CHARASMATIC SMILE
YOUR STUBBORN WAYS WILL FIGHT AWAY
MONSTERS TO A CHILD
FILLING THEM WITH PEACE AGAIN
SO MAYBE THEY CAN SLEEP WITHIN
AND FIND THEIR DREAMS TO DO LIKE YOU DO

I WANT YOU TO SHINE
I WANT YOU TO SHINE
BRIGHTER THAN ME

I WANT YOU TO GLOW
FOR THE FACES YOU KNOW
AND THE FACES YOU DON’T

I WANT YOU TO SHINE

I MISS YOU
I WANT THE BEST FOR YOU

I LOVE YOU

I WANT YOU TO SHINE
I WANT YOU TO SHINE
BRIGHTER THAN ME
I WANT YOU TO GLOW
FOR THE FACES YOU KNOW
AND THE FACES YOU DONT

I WANT YOU TO SHINE
I WANT YOU TO SHINE
BRIGHTER THAN ME

I WANT YOU TO SHINE

TONIGHT COLLIDE

Written By: TASHA MALONEY

TONIGHT COLLIDE

TONIGHT COLLIDE
YOUR KITE
IS TANGLED IN MY SKY OF WOUNDS

TONIGHT COLLIDE
YOU TRIED
TO MEND MY OPEN POINT OF VIEW

SO MAYBE I’D AWAKE AS SOMEONE NEW
MAYBE I’D AWAKE…….

TONIGHT COLLIDE
ERASE
TATOOS GIVEN TO YOU BY ABUSE
TONIGHT COLLIDE
SO NAKED YOU HAVE NOTHING MORE TO LOSE

SO NAKED YOU’LL BE OPEN TO THE TRUTH
SO NAKED YOU’LL BE RESCUED

YOUR NOT GOD
STOP DYING
TO FIX ME
IM
NOT BROKEN
SO WHAT IF
IM BLEEDING

TONIGHT
COLLIDE

TONIGHT
COLLIDE

IF WE FALL

Written By: Tasha Maloney

Stars on tattered jackets
Worn out badges
Stitches mark our life

March through nightmare flashes
Reality clashes
With our parade tonight

We’ll fly by your prisons
Where we grew inches
Above these city lights

If we fall
We’ll fall down
From our clouds
To our ground
We’ll stand up
And brush off
Your crowns
(repeat)

Crushing lies with silence
Boundaries built so you could tame us
Do you blame us
Your contagious
We want out

Well fly by your prisons
Where we grew inches
Above these city lights
(chorus)

We’re bigger than the rolls we’re forced in
We wont be laid to rest in remorse and
If we fall
Watch us fall
Cause its our fall
Its our fall

(chorus)

NOT READY

Written By: TASHA MALONEY

Punk rock stages
Funny faces
Broken traces
Of a shooting star
Lives on red bull
Thinks it’s so cool
When I play my guitar
Ambitious dreamer
Few regrets
He chews Nicorette
Showed him a reason
To live past thirty
Wears his heart on his dirty
Sleeve

I’m not ready
To write
A love song for him
But I’m getting closer
Each time
I hold this pen

He’s attractive
Hyper active
When he plays air drums in his car
Studied traveled
Jeans unraveled
He’s sacrificed for art
He’s everything I want to be
He hands the world to me

I’m not ready to write
A love song for him
But I’m getting closer each time
I hold this pen

His hearts open
Mine is broken
He stuns the past that I hold on too
That I hold on too

He’s everything I want to be
He hands the world to me

I’m not ready to write
A love song for him
But I’m getting closer
Each time
I hold this
pen

GOODBYE

Written By: TASHA MALONEY

STAR LIT SPECKLED HIGHWAY DRIVE
CAUTIOUS HEART ON THE LINE
WHICH LEADS
TO YOUR HOUSE

THROUGH YOUR WINDOW
I STARE
FOR THE SMALLEST OF FLARE
FROM YOUR
COMPUTER SCREEN DREAMS
AND IM SCARED

I HATE THAT YOUR SO WRONG FOR ME
I MISS YOU BUT YOU HURT ME
I HATE YOU BUT I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU GOODBYE

BOX OF MOMENTS MADE US ONE
A TWO TONE SILVER RING TO HEAL WHATS DONE
BUT WHATS DONE
IS DONE

I HATE THAT YOUR SO WRONG FOR ME
I MISS YOU BUT YOU HURT ME
I HATE YOU BUT I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU GOODBYE

MEMORIES IM SMILING
HURTFUL DAYS REWINDING
AM I SCARED AM I SANE?

I HATE THAT YOUR SO WRONG FOR ME
I MISS YOU BUT YOU HURT ME
I HATE YOU BUT I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU
GOODBYE
