Emerging from Canada's West Coast, arena rockers Ten2Nine deliver an epic sound with an explosive balance of fire and passion. The band's multi-award winning debut album X-II-IX is a collection of masterful and infectious rock songs.

Biography

Led by the brilliant vocals of Pat Brown and distinctive songwriting from Brown and guitarist Randall Robinson, Ten2Nine's sound is completed by the power and edge from lead guitarist Jim LeGuilloux, keyboardist Vtyas Synkevicius, bassist Neville Bowman and drummer Scott Gamble.

In summer 2005 Ten2Nine swept the Okanagan Scorpion Music Awards winning in eight categories including: Album of the Year (X-II-IX), Song of The Year (Don't Want That Anymore), Male Performer of the Year (Pat Brown), Musician of the Year (Scott Gamble) and Group of the Year! A review in the February 2006 issue of BURRN!, Japan's biggest hard-rock magazine, rated X-II-IX among the top 7 imports and has introduced Ten2Nine to millions of new fans overseas.

From day one X-II-IX has created a buzz amongst fans, critics and industry professionals alike. The fan favorite Are We There Yet? becomes the third song from X-II-IX to receive airplay - along with Don't Want That Anymore and the 2004 Scorpion Song of the Year Smoke In The Light - with all of these songs continuing to gain new adds on commercial, college, satellite and Internet radio.

Two of the tracks on this 10-song CD - Don't Want That Anymore and Blue Again - were produced by P.C.M.I.A. Producer of the Year recipient Dale Penner whose credits include Nickelback, Mathew Good, Econoline Crush and Holly McNarland, amongst others. The remainder of the songs on X-II-IX were produced by long-time collaborator Jim LeGuilloux, who took home Producer of the Year honors at the Scorpion's for his contributions to the album.

Lyrics

Smoke In The Light

Written By: P. Brown & R. Robinson

Look at your life
Your caught in a haze and yet you're
trying to see it in a different light
You're thick in the mix but it don't
fix anything broken inside
Cause after the change you're gonna find
something better out there

What would you say
If somebody told you if you boarded this train
you'd be doing okay
Would you make your way down
to the wrong side of town
But just remember after the change
you're gonna find something better out there

Roll up all your answers light them with a reason
Everything is better when you can breathe
There's got to be a way to settle the confusion
Maybe find our own sun then you will see

What would you say
If somebody told you if you boarded this train
you'd be doing okay
Would you make your way down to the wrong side of town
Just remember after the change
you're gonna find something better out there

Roll up all your answers light them with a reason
Everything is better when you can breathe
There's got to be a way to settle the confusion
Maybe find our own sun then you will see
You'll see the smoke in the light

Look at your life
Your caught in a haze and yet you're
trying to see it in a different light
You're thick in the mix but it don't
fix anything broken inside
Cause after the change
you're gonna find something better out there

Roll up all your answers light them with a reason
Everything is better when you can breathe
There's got to be a way to settle the confusion
Maybe find our own sun then you will see
You'll see the smoke in the light

Are We There Yet?

Written By: P. Brown, R. Robinson & J. LeGuilloux

Are we there yet? A little farther just a little farther.
Are we there yet? A little farther just a little farther.

Gonna make it happen something's gotta give here
All I got to offer looking to the future
Never gonna go there nasty little fellow
Still a little mellow you know I'm really shallow
Come along and follow do you really know her
Seems it's getting close I am not the father
Leaning on my shoulder like a primadonna.

Are we there yet? A little farther just a little farther.
Are we there yet? A little farther just a little farther.

Just a little farther stay a little longer
Drive a little faster need to feed the hunger
Work a little longer hiding in the shadows
Get a little close go a little longer
Gonna make it better giving me the finger
Just a little older just around the corner
Past the road to nowhere no it's never over
Tastes a little bitter

Are we there yet? A little farther just a little farther.
Are we there yet? A little farther just a little farther.

You're not the only one who sees the truth.
I keep my visions to myself.
Maybe along that road I might find you.
Not if you look like someone else.

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
A little farther just a little farther.

Don't Want That Anymore

Written By: P. Brown & R. Robinson

I've been needing something, don't believe in nothing
and I don't want that anymore

So good to talk to you again my friend
it seems we never get the chance to sit and talk right
So good to hear you say
how are you can you stay today
or do you have to go

I've been needing something, don't believe in nothing
and I don't want that anymore
But I'm seeing something and I believe it's coming
'cause I don't want that anymore

Remember when we were in school
you thought that you were pretty cool
so did everybody else I guess that I'm the only fool
Those years just slipped away and all we do today is play
'cause we got nowhere to go

I've been needing something, don't believe in nothing
and I don't want that anymore
But I'm seeing something and I believe it's coming
'cause I don't want that anymore

So how's the wife and kid, the dog and brother Bob
Has life been good to you so far since I've been gone
Those years just slipped away and all we do today is play
'cause we got nowhere to go

I've been needing something, don't believe in nothing
and I don't want that anymore
But I'm seeing something and I believe it's coming
'cause I don't want that anymore
