Biography

Dave, Michael and Chris, friends for the best part of a decade and still going strong - but not without their fall outs...especially when it comes to this band. The thing is, music was always a huge passion for all three members, each one with their own personal slant on the trio. So it wasn’t long before they realized that with all this enthusiasm and drive they could really make a difference. All three guys have something different to offer to the Acoustics. Michael (aka Finni) with his calm and patient nature has been the brains and lyricist behind some of the bands greatest tunes including his personal favourite, Heaven Here. His keen perception and skill on the guitar adds to an already polished live performance.

'He’s such a sound guy and so modest, his lyrics fit so well with my voice, he really knows how to get the best out of us.’ (Chris)

Dave, always obsessed with music, his talent was noticed at a very young age at many a house party. His technical accuracy and astute musical ear has produced some truly original sounds. His speed and producing something completely new is very impressive.

‘The thing about Dave is that he makes something amazing out of nothing… I could hum a melody and he’d produce some amazing accompaniment in just minutes!’ (Mike)

Chris, the front man, has the looks, the charm and definitely the attitude to bring this band forward. Classically trained with a rich and powerful voice he definitely has the charisma that any successful band needs.

‘I just love singing, its all I’ve ever wanted to do, I just hope that other people can appreciate our music just as much as we do.’ (Chris)

Watch out for The Acoustics heading your way.

Lyrics

Heaven Here

Written By: The Acoustics

What a backdrop against the sky
when a moment passes you by
You're my heaven here

You get kick out of wasting time
on your monumental crime
You're my heaven here

You've got yourself to blame
said you've got yourself to blame
anyway...
come what may
anyway...
come what may

You got a head full of crazy dreams
I only hope we'll get to see
You're my heaven here

I can see it in your eyes
you've got a look of a girl that might
Be my heaven here

You've got yourself to blame
said you've got yourself to blame
anyway...
anyway...
come what may

Life

Written By: Chris Quirk, Mike Finnigan, Dave Andrew

Smoky days, boozer nights
yeah, their all part of life
Good girls and bad ones
we've all loved one

Pain and sorrow in equal amounts
don't it make you want to shout
Shout out for love

Lazy days, crazy nights
wake in the morning for the light
We've got all our problems
tell me yours and I'll solve them

Love and happiness in equal amounts
don't it make you want to shout
Shout out for love

Each and every time I wake up
I want the make the best out of my life
Hold my hand, feel no pain
cause we got so much to gain

In this thing we call life
In this thing we call life
