Some times great things come to be for reasons we can't explain. Like the Caramilk secret or TiVo, the C’mons are a group of alt rockers from Toronto, ON with tunes that make anyday, a good day. Did we mention rock violin?

Biography

Born on the Toronto Craigslist musician pages, The C'mons are a violin-infused indie-rock band with a sound that will rip out your heart while you tap your toes.

Fronted by powerhouse Steph Bosch, the band features backup vocals by bassist Jamie McDowella veteran of Toronto's indie scene. Orchestral violinist Roslyn Green, university-trained guitarist Scott Hanenberg, and jazz-educated drummer Cory Snider round out The C'mons' unique sound. Together, their sound has the punch of The Cranberries with heart like Arcade Fire.

The C'mons have been blasting eardrums since early 2012, when they released Coming Up for Air, a three-song EP for download on Soundcloud. Since then, they've showcased at Steamwhistle Unsigned, CMW, Indie Week and NXNE and played at storied Toronto venues including the Horseshoe Tavern, the Rivoli, and the El Mocambo. The buzz online has been building: they were named one of BlogTOs Top 10 Breakout Bands of 2013, featured on Irelands Urban Unsigned blog and podcast, and appeared in The Toronto Stars Anti-Hit List. Recent accomplishments include placing second in Torontos Indie Week 2013 semi-finals and winning a FACTOR Demo grant. Demand for their live shows has taken them to major cities throughout Ontario and Qubec.

Watch for the C'mons this summer at festivals and shows throughout Central and Eastern Canada in support of their latest EP Places.


Lyrics

Stupid Charlie

Written By: Stephanie Bosch

Hello stupid Charlie are you with it cause you’re hardly even Standing on your feet, you never had that much to drink These drugs will make you slower But your mind keeps getting older stupid kid

I said all the kings and all the horses couldn’t stop the things you started Tell me how it feels to be brought up the other way Ya and all the wheels that spin in your head, tell me which one makes you my friend Look at you, you think you’re smooth, your mother would she’d proud

Ya I bet she’d be so proud

Well I said

Hello stupid Charlie are you with it cause you’re hardly even Standing on your feet, you never had that much to drink These drugs will make you slower But your mind keeps getting older stupid kid

I said all the pills won’t make you better Build your wall of bricks not feathers

I said all those pills won’t make you better

Build your wall of bricks not feathers

Well I said

Hello stupid Charlie are you with it cause you’re hardly even Standing on your feet, you never had that much to drink These drugs will make you slower But your mind keeps getting older stupid kid

All the pills won’t make you better Build your wall of bricks not feathers And all the kings and all the horses Couldn’t stop the things you started

All, the pills and, all your bullshit.

Well I said

Hello stupid Charlie are you with it cause you’re hardly even Standing on your feet, you never had that much to drink These drugs will make you slower But your mind keeps getting older stupid kid

Well I said Hello stupid Charlie hahahahahaha

Alone Eventually

Written By: Stephanie Bosch

Every day our hearts get broken

Every sorry we have spoken

Every night my heart gets pulled in two

Every hour my mind is changing

Every time I’m rearranging

Pictures in my head of me and you

There’s something about your poison that doesn’t make me weak

There’s something about your skin that isn’t sweet

There’s something so addicting, that takes a hold of me

Yet we all end up alone eventually

It seems so unfair to me the ending of our tragedy

All we had were simple roles to play

As our tangled rope unravels

We have our own roads to travel

Where we go may not be where we stay

Where we go may not be where we stay

There’s something about your poison that doesn’t make me weak

There’s something about your skin that isn’t sweet

There’s something so addicting, that takes a hold of me

Yet we all end up alone eventually

There’s something about your poison that doesn’t make me weak

There’s something about your skin that isn’t sweet

There’s something so addicting, that takes a hold of me

Yet we all end up alone eventually

Yet we all end up alone eventually

Go Go Go

Go Go Go
The C’mons

Everybody’s stupid and you think you’ve got the cure
It’s the better part of being perfect that you think you’ve learned
So excuse them if you need some room and you think you’re gonna scream
It’s better when you hold it in and you’re shakin
At the knees

So tell them that you’re ok cause it’s easier to lie
And you wanna shut their faces slam the door and run inside
But be careful cause it’s creepin in those little things you hate
And it’s hard to feel so normal in this not so perfect state...

So you go go go
Pretend that everything feels fine
You move so slow
It’s like your days play in rewind

It takes you back and throws you down does anybody care
Don’t tell me you forgot the point of coming up for air
Ya eyes can shut but looks will kill when everybody stares
So don’t tell me you’re together when you’re always running scared

So you go go go
Pretend that everything feels fine
You move so slow
It’s like your days play in rewind

If it doesn't fix its x4

Doesnt fix its broke
Doesnt fix its broke
Doesnt fix its broke...

So you go go go
Pretend that everything feels fine
You move so slow
It’s like your days play in rewind

Unpredictable

Written By: The C'MONS

Unpredictable
The C'MONS

Fed up you feel like a hate machine
Run down I know we can be so mean
Hide out from who we could be

Cause we don’t wanna stop and work on the inbetween

Your type is better with words and I can’t fight cause it’s makin it worse
We’re lost with maps we cannot read

So I’ll let go let go let go and let you take the lead...

Your conscious is quite clean
Because you practice what you preach
But don’t let it go to your head
If you’re looking for something then don’t you forget (when you)

Say, you say that you’re not ok
I didn’t mean to hurt you this way
But you found out the hard way
That some things are sure but I’m unpredictible
Hey, well I know that we don’t feel the same
But it’s best that we go our own ways
And I’m sure you’ll find someday
That some things are sure but I’m unpredictable

Check in cause I know that this makes you weak
Well it takes some time to find your feet
I’m so over rate believe that I

Don’t wanna stop your exit to everything

Cause my type is so very hard to please
We can’t avoid this break down
Everything’s better when it’s out of reach

So I’ll let go let go let go maybe then you’ll see...

Your conscious is quite clean
Because you practice what you preach
But don’t let it go to your head
If you’re looking for something then don’t you forget (when you)

Say, you say that you’re not ok
I didn’t mean to hurt you this way
But you found out the hard way
That some things are sure but I’m unpredictible
Hey, well I know that we don’t feel the same
But it’s best that we go our own ways
And I’m sure you’ll find someday
That some things are sure but I’m unpredictable

(Break)

When you say, you’re not ok
When you say, you’re not ok
When you say, you say that you’re not ok
I didn’t mean to hurt you this way
But you found out the hard way.....

(When you) Say, you say that you’re not ok
I didn’t mean to hurt you this way
But you found out the hard way
That some things are sure but I’m unpredictible
Hey, well I know that we don’t feel the same
But it’s best that we go our own ways
And I’m sure you’ll find someday
That some things are sure but I’m unpredictable
