Biography

Allow me to introduce you to The Fairweathers: A small-town band with big city appeal. From their pop hooks to their straight-up rockers to their acoustic-driven ballads, The Fairweathers do it all in a way that’s instantly likeable and fun to listen to.

The band formed in mid 2010, jamming together for the first time to headline a breast cancer fundraiser concert in their hometown of Caledonia, Ontario. But that was not the end of The Fairweathers’ story. The three members—Kyle Moning, Denis Spellen, and Jeff Crugnale—found they had an instant bond and that the three of them together could make words jump off the page and rhythms jump off the stage.

Just a few short months after the show, the band went into the studio to record their debut, self-titled five-song E.P. The recording showed off their songs’ depth from the pop punk rocker Just Jenny to the party song A Little Too Late and finishing off with the young-love acoustic ballad Getaway Car.

The Fairweathers will celebrate their CD release with shows in Caledonia, ON on November 25th at The Barrelhouse Club and their adopted hometown of Hamilton, ON on November 30th at The Casbah. In the days leading up to the release, the band stripped down their instruments to play an acoustic show at By The Drop Coffeehouse in Caledonia, ON. The band displayed their diversity with the Denis and Kyle trading in their electric guitars and basses for mandolins and tambourines and their drummer Jeff trading in his kit to show his skills on the acoustic guitar.

The Fairweathers, never content with staying in one place for long, have their eyes on the horizon. The band hasn’t stopped writing through the recording process and is always working on new material to showcase. The future is bright for this young band.

The Fairweathers are:
Kyle Moning (Lead Vocal, Electric Bass, Electric and Acoustic Guitar)
Denis Spellen (Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Background Vocals, Electric Bass)
Jeff Crugnale (Drums, Background Vocals)

Lyrics

Just Jenny

Written By: Kyle Moning

Verse 1
Jenny wants to say she`s happy but she is sad
Jenny wants to be in control—well that`s too bad
Bridge
So she walks, now she`s hailing a cab
the driver talks, says life is not that bad
Chorus
Just Jenny, run, run, run
You won`t be back until the evening comes
Just Jenny, you`ve got some fight
you could save her life tonight
Verse 2
Jenny wanders through the dance floor
doesn’t see it at all
wonders how they dance and party
when she feels so small
Bridge
Friendly ghosts and silly monsters have ruined your night
but it`s your own decision if they`ll ruin your life
Chorus
Break
Jenny, Jenny you`re not dumb
you just wanted to have some fun
Jenny you`re future`s not too bright
just get some sleep tonight
Chorus

Give My Love To Her

Written By: Kyle Moning

Verse 1
Now the guide says hold on please
and instead of the railing she holds me
if I could tell her only one thing
it would be what I’m about to sing
Chorus
Give my love to her, she knows who she is
and what I’d tell her is this
she’s not the reason I wake up
she’s the reason I take my first breath
Verse 2
If I was lying I’d give it away
because my eyes have more to say
they see the rose without the thorn
and in her eyes they see even more
Chorus
Give my love to her, she knows who she is
and what I’d tell her is this
she’s not the reason I’m alive
she’s the reason I want to cheat death

Sunny Days

Written By: Kyle Moning

Verse 1
The window sill is cold like this city
the river gently flows, it could be pretty
on another day, on another day
Verse 2
Your heart is tightly locked like my front door
I should feel safe but I can hear the wind roar
on sunny days, on sunny days
Chorus
Sunny days are so unlike my days
if my head could I think it’d rain today
rain today
Sunny days are so unlike my brain
It’s cloudy and it feels like I may rain today
rain today
Verse 3
I wake up to the sun but I feel cloudy
Another gorgeous day, so why do I feel lousy
on sunny days, on sunny days
Verse 4
Crystal clear today, I can see fine
but I almost died today, how do I miss that stop sign
every day on sunny days
Chorus

A Little Too Late

Written By: Kyle Moning

Verse 1
So cheers to friends
to a party that never ends
or a party that never ends
until we say
Verse 2
Raise your beers my friends
I hope you’ll recommend
a song to play that’ll
brighten up the day
Chorus
We all say goodbye a little too late
and we all say hello too early the next day
there’s never enough time to celebrate
but if we’re with our friends it’ll be okay
Verse 3
and now my friends
we’ve all made amends
and our memories will end
by tomorrow
Verse 4
So cheers to friends
for friendship that never ends
or friendship we can at least
sometimes borrow
Chorus

Getaway Car

Written By: Kyle Moning

Verse 1
My mind’s made up
gotta get out of this town

nowhere to go to but I’m
up for anything if you’re down
Bridge
We’ll make it to Hollywood if you split on the gas
we’ve got so much love but so little cash
our dreams are big and disconnected
scattered like tickets on the dash
Chorus
I’ll never wonder where you are
it’s you and me in a getaway car
we might go fast but we may not get that far
it’s you and me in a getaway car
Verse 2
this small town
nothing left for us here
whatever’s fogging our mind
the road will make clear
Verse 3
So let’s go now
let’s begin before it starts
when it’s your turn to drive
I’ll break in my new guitar
Bridge

Chorus
