Biography

When James Pequignot’s last band started going south he cut his losses and started over. He teamed up with percussionist Jordan Valentine and started The Singular. Six months later they released their debut EP ‘I Finally Know What’s Good for Me,’ which was met with overwhelming critical acclaim. The disc was called “What acts like The Fray and Coldplay could do if they possessed some talent.” – Matt Gorey, Scene Magazine and “…a true example of a genre done right.” - Sari Delmar, Exclaim! Magazine. Immediately following the release the band began working on their follow up with the aid of their original bassist who left the band shortly after its completion. On the eve of its release they’ve added bassist Terry Mortensen and keyboard player Nichole Miller. The band, now a full quartet as it was originally conceived, is poised to release ‘Death by Radio,’ a collection of songs that relies less heavily on atmospheric effects, but rather Pequignot’s strong writing and arranging skills, as well as the bands ability to create dynamic and moving performances.

Lyrics

Nobody

Written By: James Pequignot

Who would lock you out?
Who would send you home?
Who would stand you up?
Who would tell you no?
Nobody

Who would stand you up"
Who would say "goodbye"?
Who would fuck you up?
Who would make you cry?
Nobody

You're not pretentious about it
Do you acknowledge at all?
The little people poised to catch your fall

Who would knock you out?
Who would leave you cold?
Who would stab your back?
Who would tell you no?
Nobody

You're not pretentious about it
Do you acknowledge at all?
The little people poised to catch your fall

You're so pretty aren't you?
And all your doors are open
Who will hold them for you?
Who wouldn't hold them all for you?

Spiders

Written By: James Pequignot

The spiders in my head
Wish that I was dead
They tell me every time
I'm falling asleep
They punch me in the head
Kick me in the shin
Tell me what I did
To deserve all this pain
They say it's too late
But I will escape
I will escape

The voices in my brain
Tell me I'm insane
But I don't listen to
A word that they say
They tell me all the things
That I should have said
But they always wait
Until it's too late
They say it's too late
But I will escape
I will escape

I could never kill a spider
with my hand
Until what they did

Super Highway

Written By: James Pequignot

Stretch your arms from coast to coast
Father son and holy ghost
It's never gonna be this good again
Put your keys in the ignition
Buy the new revised edition
We ain't got the money
But the money's got to spend

So move along
Until a super highway brings you home

Wars were won and wrote the books
But some details were overlooked
The truth is one more
Story never told
I've traveled long forgotten roads
Neglected dirt and gravel roads
There's just one place I
Never got to go

So move along
Until a super highway brings you home

Polish all the cars
Cover all the scars
Make it look real pretty
Like the people on TV
But on select occasions
I'll nurture my abrasion
Hold it like a trophy up
For all the world to see
It isn't good
It isn't bad
It's only me
