Biography

The Fated continue to spread their unique blend of acoustic rock and power pop to audiences all over California. Jessica Porter of American Idol fame fronts The Fated, while never looking back. She has been pushing as a singer since the ripe age of 5, doing talent shows, recitals, county fairs, and using any and every opportunity to showcase her powerful voice.

Her meeting with Matt Kaner in February of 2003 proved to be a life-altering encounter. The duo found themselves with a strong musical chemistry that has since led to the creation of a repertoire of well over 30 songs. The formation of a full band in October of 2003 opened new doors for the group of musicians. In January of 2004 the band was offered a spot on Westlake Audio's Artist Development part of their website in which two songs were showcased. The Fated have played legendary venues such as The Roxy Theatre, The Whisky A-Go-Go, The Knitting Factory, The Hotel Cafe, 14 Below, SOhO , Rock's, and many others.

In March of 2004, Into Relality, a self-produced and self-released 11-track album was released. It was the culmination of over a month and a half of hard work in Oxygen Recording in Montecito , California . The album was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Justin Fox who is now the front man in the Santa Barbara band Tripdavon. The Fated continue to self-produce their music while they showcase new material that is set to be on their forthcoming sophomore release.


Lyrics

Free Of You

Written By: The Fated

Don't say
Don't ever say you'll stay away
Just breathe
Just let it all come falling down
Because I know that it's only in your mind
Take the time to rewind
Let it go
JUst believe
And it's in your dreams you'll find your reality
And I am free
And I am free of you
I'm free of you

Don't stop
Don't ever say you'll play it quits
Just jump
Just let it all come crashing down
Because I know that it's only in your mind
Take the time to rewind
Let it go
Just believe
And it's in your dreams you'll find your reality
And I am free
And I am free

And the days just pass us by
All the moments we want to keep
And the hours go without the time
And the moments pass us by
All the things we wish we'd said
Now you turn around and that's your life

Don't say
Don't ever say you'll stay away
Just breathe
Just let it all crashing down
Cuz I know that it's only in your mind
Take the time to rewind
Let it go
Just believe
And it's in your dreams you'll find your reality
And I am free
And I am free of you
I'm free of you
Don't stop.

Feel You

Written By: The Fated

It's getting kind of hard to feel you
Sometimes I think I didn't know you at all
And everything keeps on weighing
Oh no, why did I take that fall?
I don't wanna eat
It's hard to breathe
No one to me, no
And my saturdays keep turning into mondays
I'm just trying to make it from sunday to sunday

And the bedsheets left so cold
Your mind is twisted and untold
Oh, my heart needs a little rest my friends
Do another line to ease the time

Are you ok?

I keep doing everything I can
Just to feel normal again
Why did you say the things you said?
Oh no, why did I take that fall?
I don't wanna eat
It's hard to breathe
No one to me, no
And my saturdays keep turning into mondays
I'm just trying to make it from sunday to sunday

And the bedsheets left so cold
Your mind is twisted and untold
Oh, my heart needs a little rest my friends
Do another line to ease the time

Are you ok?
Are you ok?
Cuz if you're ok then I'll be fine
Are you ok?

Standing There Alone

Written By: The Fated

Feels like the same situation
Conversation's got me in rotation
Somebody press remind and
Certain people's faces, yeah
They mask common places
And nothing's this real in the fall of time
So tell me why you're constantly questioning the stars
Over and over again
I got too high that day
Went too deep again and baby
Maybe I died

And if it's not right
And if it's wrong then
Why are we standing there alone?
If you can feel if this is real then
Why are we standing there alone?

Here comes another day
Holding on to the hope that we might find our own way
Well people they can take you there
And people they can make you stare
And make you need that pain that you hated so much
So tell me why you're constantly questioning the stars
over and over again
I got too high that day
Went too deep again and baby
Maybe I died

And if it's not right
And if it's wrong then
Why are we standing there alone?
If you can feel if this is real then
Why are we standing there alone?

One more time around that line
I wanna take you back there
To a dream I once had before
C'mon, c'mon with me

If it's not right
And if it's wrong then
Why are we standing there alone?
If you can feel if this is real then
Why are we standing there alone?
