Biography

Who is Alford Avenue ? We started about 4 years ago in Hoover, a town right outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Lead singer, Kris Cody lived in a neighborhood off Alford Ave. For a while we did not have a name, but we decided since that was where we started we would name our band Alford Avenue. At first it was Kris Cody ( guitar, vocals ), Jesse Hayes ( bass ) and Brandon Lemly ( drums ). We tried out different guitar players,but could'nt find a match. Cody decided to try his little cousin Chad Tyler; he was young but we knew he would be loyal and not be an ass. He fit in good so we started playing shows around Birmingham . Things went good for a while, but brandon started acting seperated so we were forced to let him go. We looked for a new drummer just about everywhere but couldn't find the perfect fit. We were at the point that we didn't know what to do. Then we thought of something we should of thought of way before, which was to get Cody's dad Bo Wilson to play. We talked to Bo about it and he said he would do it, so we were finally back on the scene. Their was still one thing that was holding us back, a demo. Chad knew this girl who worked at a management company in Hoover, Alabama, she got us set up to play as an audition for them to sign us. They liked us and sent us to Nashville, Tenn. to record at the Sound Kitchen, we only got three songs done. We were supposed to go back but our manager kept putting us off, we eventually got tired of it and got out of the contract. This set us back for a couple months, until we decided that we would just have to do it ourselves. To do this we would need a fifth member, so we added Chad's stepdad Taz Turner as lead guitarist. Chad and Cody then decided to get a studio/production company going, so we could not only record an album, but also they could do what the've always wanted to do which is recording/producing. Greenwood Studios and the Avenue Productions has become a huge part in what we have accomplished so far, we are currently working on our first albumn which should be done by March ' 07, thanx for checking us out hope to here from you soon.

Lyrics

Endles Game

Written By: Lyrics KC/ Music Alford Avenue

Time it just slipped today I feel this in my veins and the pain just goes away goes away, Why is pleasure filled with pain its an endless game that I keep fallin in falling

Hey I lost the way I need a hand to guide me, Say I lost the way a needed hand beside me

Try to keep tha Demons in the one thats deep within and they just dont go away go away, Why wont they go away maybe I'm the blame maybe I just like the pain

Hey I lost the way I need a hand to guide me, Say you found the way a needed hand beside me

Ohh to guide me,
To Console me,
Well to guide me

SOLO

Hey I lost the way I need a hand to
guide me, Say you found the way a needed hand beside me

Ohh to guide me,
To console me,
Well to guide me,

WaLk AwAy

Written By: K.C.

I'm breaking down from promises that just fell trough, its just a cycle of lost hours and years too.

Dont: call me save your words there all the same, in your distorted mind I'm the one to blame.

Someday, I cant go on living this way, Someday I'll find the strength
to WaLk AwAy

To WaLk AwAy now, Along the way I waisted hours hurting too, did u ever stop to think that I got feelings to.

Dont: call me save your words there all the same, in your distorted mind I'm the one to blame.

Someday, I cant go on living this way Oneday I'll find the strength to walk away

And I cant go down this road again its never ending and its all the same . To WaLk AwAy, to WaLk AwAy nooow

Someday, I cant go on living this way Oneday I'll find the strength to walk away

ThE CaLL

Written By: AlFoRd AvEnUe

Everything around me has changed fastly dont know where I do belong my old friends have not been there for me, Its goodbye to yesterday and those things we use to say

ThAnK YoU for the lack of support its a CaLL to get through, SkY's BlUe today doors opes wide, Its a CaLL to FiNd YoU

Fell in a deep whole only to find hope in this underminding world through daily relations I found the patience to turn a stone into a pearl. I strive for better days and I'll find my own waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

ThAnK YoU for the lack of support its a CaLL to get through, SkY's BlUe today doors opes wide, Its a CaLL to FiNd YoU

ThE GrAduaTioN SoNg

Written By: K.C

Cant sleep tonight cause the thought of it just keeps running threw my mind
remember those days when we talked about and shared our dreams
hung outside the school cause it feels like I am running out of time cant shake the day for its here we must go our seperate way

No turning back tommorow things will never be the way they use to be, no were changing, dont make a sound save the good byes save them

Though life passes bye the memories I'll have for all time the blink of an eye we are here and going seperate ways, take a step back cause the halls are changing take another step cause these walls aint staying my backs against the wall and those words you were saying bout how I'm young and have it all why cant I have it all?

No turning back tommorow things will never be the way they use to be, no were changing, dont make a sound save the good byes save them

These halls were going down, those doors were walking out, its over to soon I'm sorry but its to late to go back down back down

No turning back tommorow things will never be the way they use to be, no were changing, dont make a sound save the good byes save them
