Listening to The Sailor Sequence begs you to roll your windows down and take a drive. Simple but thoughtful lyrics joined tenderly to smooth melodies and beats creating the unique, artistic experience that is The Sailor Sequence.

Biography

The Sailor Sequence formed in the summer of 2006 out of a studio project collaboration between Kansas natives Nathan Johnson and David Noffsinger (AKA Noffy). The initial studio project featured the blending of Noffy's acoustic/folk stylings with Nathan's ambient electric guitar influence and textured digital programming. What began as an interest to record Noffsinger's voice for fun eventually turned into a persuable live project. Caleb Berciunas joined the group in the fall of 2007 adding his own flare of melodic and percussive talent to the group. TSS currently performs as a three piece, blending instrumental breakdowns, ambient textured programming and catchy but thought provoking lyrics. The groups major musical influences include Explosions in the Sky, Lymbyc Systym, The Album Leaf and Death Cab for Cutie. TSS has shared the stage with such acts as The Appleseed Cast, Mae, Deas Vail, Coalesce, The Forecast, The A.K.A.'s, Edison Glass, The Republic Tigers, Ivory and The Colour Revolt.

Lyrics

Around The Lake

Written By: Noffy, Nathan, Jason Ingram

We drove around the lake
To the other side
We walked along the wall
In the middle of the night
All the stars were out of us to see
I know there’s nothing better, no there’s nothing better
And all the people miles and miles away
No there’s nothing better, no there’s nothing better
Please freeze the night, the night in time
Please freeze the night, the night in time

We tried our best we tried
Tried to make it right
It’s okay that we moved on
We each have different lives
But all the stars were out for us to see
I know there’s nothing better, no there’s nothing better
I guess it wasn’t ever meant to be
Pray the we’ll remember, pray that we’ll remember
Please freeze the night, the night in time
Please freeze the night, the night in time

Salt

Written By: David Noffy Noffsinger / The Sailor Sequence

You lie in the bottom of this ocean / When you die, you'll lie in the bottom of a coffin / To die is so easy, to breathe is to try so hard.
