Biography

The Come Latelys began with singer-songwriter John Williams, and multi-instrumentalist Mike Harmeier. In the winter of 2005, after releasing an alt. country EP recorded in their Austin home, they recruited a rhythm section in friends Kyle Ponder and Matt Smith. Within a month of heavy gigging at venues like the Saxon Pub and Ruta Maya, the Come Latelys were selected by the "Zig-Zag Live Club Tour" for a showcase at Austin's Emo's with Oakley Hall and Constantines. "The Come Latelys’ slowed-down but jazzed-up alt-country will break your heart and make you fall in love at the same time."- said Zig-Zag. Since then, the Come Latelys have adapted their sound to the Austin live music scene, exploring the more epic side of their indie rock and country mix. Recently, the Come Latelys filmed a DVD at the Saxon Pub showcasing their new style. While always experimenting with new musicians and styles, the Come Latelys' future looks very bright.

Lyrics

Goldheart

Written By: The Come Latelys

I wanna be, non-fiction for sure, trying to be serious, but your laughter was the cure, darling was it worth a kiss, to find out what we are, I ain't never had a gold heart, never gonna have a goldheart, sympathy, for strangers I know, It's gonna be the death of you, and the cures rarely the truth, you ain't nobody nothin' new, your as pretty as you are now, I ain't never been much to look at, always been the one with my head down, smoke leads a trail back to my idle hands, when I die of cancer its all part of god's plan, clinical, depressions a joke, I love it when your cynical, pie-eyed and soft saoped, playin on your violin, and closin' down the bars, tuck back into our shells, meet for morning cocktails.
