Biography

Welcome to the world of…

THE COASTAL COWBOYS!

“Flint and Squint Bluesole” are fictional personas chosen to present the music of The Coastal Cowboys to the world. While the Coastals have been compared to many different artists, the genres explored by this dynamic songwriting duo range from Alternative Country, Country- flavored Classic Pop and R&B ballads, funky Acid Jazz and even New Wave and guitar driven Power Pop.

Since going online in late September of ’05, The Coastal Cowboys have consistently reached the top five in no less than ten different domestic and international genre charts with well over 30,000 plays on their www.soundclick.com/thecoastalcowboys website, (Soundclick.com is one of the highest ranked unsigned music sites according to Alexa), and their songs have been featured on Live365, Sonicbids and Project Overseer Productions, as well as pod casts and internet radio play in 67 countries world-wide!

Their just-released first album, “Ride On!” has been very well received. Sometimes compared to songwriters like Roy Orbison and Scott Walker, the Coastal Cowboys remain close to their roots. With influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Ultravox!, the chances are very good that “Flint and Squint” can create that certain song quality artists have been searching for. They probably already have!

The entire Coastal Cowboys catalog is also open for placement in film and television. No less than three films expressed interest in The Coastal Cowboys’ music before their new CD was even released!

Lyrics

Close Their Eyes

Written By: Tilley/Wenner ©2005

You're so strong...
So strong, she said to me tonight...
She was so wrong...
So wrong, she could never get me right...
How can they ever see...
What I could never be...
Don't worry about him, he doesn't need it...
And if he does, I've never seen it...
They just close their eyes...
They just close their eyes...
You're so right...
So right, she thought of me tonight..
With such spite...
Such spite, she could never get me right...
But can they never see...
What I will never be...
He's not worth thinking of...
So don't waste your time...
They just close their eyes...
They just close their eyes...
And I feel as if there's not an angel in heaven...
Who would bother to smile down on me tonight...
Tell me what I have to do...
To get attention out of you...
And I feel as if there's not a star in the sky...
That would bother to shine down on me tonight...
Tell me what I have to say...
To make you look my way...
They just close their eyes...
They just close their eyes...

Honey I Do!

Written By: Tilley/Wenner ©2005

Will you be there when I come calling,
After the sun sets?
Constellations will line up,
For a night that they won’t forget,

Let’s take our place on the ol’ parquet,
For a sweet slow dance,
I’m your dusty old matador,
You had me at first glance,

Chorus
Do you want someone to want you?
Do you need someone to need you?
Don’t you love it when someone loves you? Honey, I do Honey, I do

Please leave the lamp on,
I want to remember every moment of this,
Every touch, every color,
Every smile, and every kiss,

Write it up in your diary,
Someday they’re going to discover it,
This barn burner, steamy page turner,
Will shoot up the bestsellers list.

SOLO over Chorus

Please let the music play,
So when I hear this song I’ll think of you,
Every note like the beat of a heart,
Pounding rhythm out so true,

Floating high in the atmosphere,
Scaling Juliette’s balcony,
I look up all starry eyed,
Like Romeo on a bended knee,

Chorus

About this song
Wrote this one for my forever girl, who got me off the dating trail. Though our love may have many years under its belt, it still rocks.

Was very inspired after listening to Dylan's Blonde on Blonde for the first time and thought I could do something along those lines, the same type of snap. Had two musical ideas and put them together. Squint sings the song so well, I'm glad we are working together. My original thought was a more rock version, but the Coastal Cowboy in me just can not be hog tied! The lyrics for 'She Fixes Me' at one point nearly had this music. Also wanted to write a Want, Need, Love song. Kind of has a 'Never My Love' feel to it. Could easily see someone like George Strait doing this song and getting a huge, Huge, HUGE HIT! Thanks, Flint
