Biography

The Reprieve is defined as: A temporary relief from any pain or suffering. That is what music means to us. My name is Evan Rundle, and I am the Lead Vocalist / Creator of the band The Reprieve. I began playing the piano at the ripe age of four, and was classically trained along side his twin brother for 10 years, until i became quite the child prodigy. By age ten I was playing at a tenth grade level, and received countless recital recognitions, and competition accolades. I starting writing my own music at age 15 when my parents got a divorce. I discovered that music could be my relief, and that my message could help others. I have written over 50 songs since then, and feel like I have connected with thousands of fans. It wasn’t until I moved up to Orlando to go to school for audio engineering that I really found myself as a musician. With the help and guidance form my fantastic drummer Jeff Larcher, I have developed a sound that is all my own. The Reprieve is made up of four musicians, three of which, including myself, have Associates in Science degrees from Valencia Community College for Music and Sound technology. We have written, recorded and produced several tracks which can be found at Myspace.com/TheReprieveBand, and are looking to take our band to the next level. Our influnces include, but are not limited to: Elton John, Billy Joel, Green Day, Sweet Home Alabama, Matchbox 20, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gavin Degraw, Garth Brooks, Jason Mraz, Bush, Nirvana, Sublime, Bob Marley, Bon Jovi, Daughtry, Nickleback, Buck Cherry, and many many more. We have some of the “Big Wigs” in New York that are interested in us, but we need to develop a fan base, and get the word out first before we think about record contracts. All you have to do is close your eyes, and open your heart, and our music is sure to speak to your soul. Music truly is the only universal language, and The Reprieve can speak to anyone regardless of age, race, or creed, and will communicate for generations to come!

Lyrics

You and Me

Written By: Evan Rundle

You and Me

(Verse #1)
You never took the time to see, The things that meant the most to me,
I need affection, but you just reject me,
I needed you and you would leave, you said you needed room to breath,
And then you wonder why we feel so distant,

Now I see what lies ahead, Beneath the secrets in my head,
I am surrounded, But I feel so alone,
I looked for love but couldn’t find, no choice but to rationalize,
My own destruction, and my cruel intentions,

(Chorus #1)
Give me strength and give me hope, when my backs against the ropes,
And I don;t think I can take the pressure,
What I need I see in you, Believe in me and see me through,
Show me how to be, Just you and Me...

(Verse #2)
So here’s the storm, and here’s the rain,
Years are pouring down the drain, If i only had an alibi,
I take it one day at a time, I walk along the dotted line,
I try to juggle, but the cards keep falling’

(Chorus #2)
Your the one who knows it all, Who has hope that will not fall,
Even when I’ve been a stupid bastard,
Your the one who has the light, when I’m wrong can make it right,
Who can show me how to be, Just you and Me...

(Verse #3)
All the things that I've been through, All the things I’m yet to do,
There’s so much tension, and there’s such confusion,
So now I have to look inside, and find a place that won’t deny,
My intentions, and my aspirations

(Chorus #1)
Show me how to be, you and me, ooh!

Valentine

Written By: Evan Rundle

Valentine

(Verse#1)
The Way the Story Goes, You had me from the start,
You opened up my soul, you opened up my heart,
I gave you everything, that I knew how to give,
We could do anything, you’d show me how to live.

(Bridge)
If we could take it back in time,
What could i say to make you mine,
Is there a way to change your mind,
And to have you say, you’ll be my Valentine.

(Verse#2)
So now I realize, I never had a chance,
You had me hypnotized, with only just a glance,
Your face is memorized, imprinted in my mind,
And now I see you every time I close my eyes.

(Bridge)

(Chorus)
Sweet Valentine I promise, Youv’e been on my mind since August,
Baby I won’t lie I’m honest, Missing you for all this time has been the hardest.
I think back to the day we met, You washed my hair I got you wet,
You took a chance, I took a bet, And since that day, I can’t regret!

(Verse #3)
Noo, Since that day I can’t regret, My valentine,
Valentine, Valentine, Valentine

(Bridge)

(Chorus)x3
