The Surefire Way

The Surefire Way

BandRockPop

Pulling influences from folk, funk, blues, soul, and jazz, we are the mutt that is rock 'n roll.

Biography

The Surefire Way's intriguing style is built on top of a rock platform but blends influences ranging from folk, funk, blues, soul, jazz, and even a little country. Imagine what would happen if you took the members of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guster, and The Police, and told them to write and play music. The catchy vocals and guitar riffs, combined with energetic bass lines and explosive percussion speak for themselves.

Their newest recording, entitled Turn It Loose, has definitely evolved from their first disc, Ask Me For More. Where Ask Me For More focused on melodic grooves and jam band harmonies, Turn It Loose turns up the heat a notch with a higher energy and more serious tone. Part of this has to do with bassist, Vinnie Fiorillo, and lead guitarist, Rob Adelman, joining original band members Scott Tworek (lead vocals, guitar) and Dan Weiss (drums). New band members bring new musical influences. In Turn It Loose you will hear a marked addition of rock guitar riffs and solos, as well as blues and funk-oriented bass lines. Combine that with the folk and jazz influences already present and The Surefire Way definitely is "the mutt that is rock 'n roll".

Lyrics

Good Stuff

Written By: Scott Tworek

What a smile, won’t you stay a while
Send my heart into exile and
I like your style

How you make me laugh with your witty jive
On my behalf you should know that
I feel so alive

I’m trying hard not to think about it
But what the hell do I do when I can’t sit
Still for one minute without the thought of your sweetness
Flowing my way, me da seu amor.

Movin’ through thin air
Knock me out with your stare
Listen up baby, listen up baby,
Listen up baby, listen to what I’ve got to say

I want the good stuff
I’m calling your bluff
Give me the good stuff, give me the good stuff
Give me the good stuff, give me
All your glory
All your glory
Give me all your glory

Dance with me, prance with me
Take a little chance on me
You try to hide but you’re easy to see

Leave your troubles at the door
Leave your clothes on the floor
Mmmmm…. Ask me for more.

I’m trying hard not to think about it
But what the hell do I do when I can’t sit
Still for one minute without the thought of your sweetness
Flowing my way, me da seu amor.

Movin’ through thin air
Knock me out with your stare
Listen up baby, listen up baby,
Listen up baby, listen to what I’ve got to say

I want the good stuff
I’m calling your bluff
Give me the good stuff, give me the good stuff
Give me the good stuff, give me
Give me all your glory
Give me all your glory
Give me all your glory
Yeah… give me all your glory
