Biography

With Sting inspired pop music and a unique sound that fuses the modern styling of Third Eye Blind and Dashboard Confessional, Adam Gardner (vocals/guitar), Britton Campbell (drums), Charlie Springhart (bass guitar), and Dave Baronio (guitar) live, eat, and breathe their passion. Their passion is simply changing lives in this generation through the power of music. All members spawn from good, decent families where they were taught the values of hard work and raised with love. The same type of families that many people are raised in, yet many of these people never truly believe that they ARE special. Adam, 24, Britton, 24, Charlie, 24, and Dave, 21, have discovered their true passion and the ENERGY that they create when they write and play music. �The reason I do this is because I want to change someone�s life in a unique way, the same way that music has changed mine,� Adam announces.

Adam, Britton, and Charlie worked together in a previous group from St. Louis that had nationwide success as an independent band. They traveled together on multiple nationwide tours, including �04 & �05 Warped Tours, sold 13,000 records completely independently (before the popularity of myspace and itunes), and built a strong fan base, as well as selling out 1000+ capacity local venues consistently. After the break-up of the former band, Adam, Britton, and Charlie went their own ways, never forgetting what they had accomplished at such a young age. For the following two years, Adam would continue to express himself through writing new music, topping his last musical work each time. Excited by the potential of these songs, he knew he had to find band members that shared his passion and called Britton and Charlie. They both felt the power in these new songs, motivating them to pursue their love for music once again. �I just knew I wasn�t where I was supposed to be anymore, the only time I�ve ever felt right is sharing the stage with my best friends and connecting with the people who enjoy our music. For the first time in our lives, we now understand that we can,� recalls Britton. They knew they could never give up on their dream again and that there would be no stopping them, despite any obstacles. They discovered guitar player Dave soon after he had moved to St. Louis from his native country of France to pursue his dream of playing music. In Adam�s words, �We feel like this was meant to be, not just coincidence. As if Dave was sent here to find us, his mentality and passion fit us so perfectly.� With Dave completing the four-piece, THIS IS ENERGY was formed.

Now, they have a burning passion to pass their ENERGY on to future generations and to inspire everyone large and small to DO SOMETHING and BE SOMEONE, to make an impact on the world around them in a positive way, and to send a message to the entire world �Don�t Give Up on Your Dreams.� The same philosophy that this band exudes through their own lives and in everything they do. There is no doubt that they are an unstoppable force, going to the very top, and they are bringing a generation with them.

Lyrics

Forevermore

Written By: Adam Gardner

I’m ready to step
I’m ready to fall
I’m ready to risk it all
So ill open up my heart
You can take what you want
I’m giving you my everything

To me
Your more than words
To you
My heart is singing

I’ll love you forevermore
You’ll never feel what its like to be alone
I’ll love you forevermore

I hope we grow old together
To one hundred and two
I cant imagine my life without you
So I’ll hold you in my arms forevermore
I have faith that they wont break

When you look into my eyes
You see a tear pass me by
A motion picture cant capture
This moment were after
We’re written like a story
Our hearts will be connected forevermore

Ill love you forever
You forever
You forevermore

Running Back To You

Written By: Adam Gardner

Verse 1:
I see the light in your eyes
It blinds like the sun
A dark indentation in me
A close wound has healed
And now it’s a scar
I’ve fallen for you and I’ve fallen hard
Pre Chorus:
I don’t brace myself falling down
Cause when I hit the ground
I come running back to you
Chorus:
You see in me
That I’ll always come running back to you(x2)
Verse 2:
You’re smell you’re touch you’re eyes
You’re one in a million
I’ll hold my opinion
Regardless of what they say
The cold of winter makes me numb to the fact
That you’re not coming back
You’re not coming back to me
(Pre Chorus)
(Chorus)
Bridge:
It’s your name that I call
Every time that I fall
I need you right by my side
I need you(x3)
(Chorus)
You’ll see in me
That I’ll always come running back to you(x2)
(Bridge Vocals)

If You Ever Make a Comeback

Written By: Adam Gardner

This city comes crashing down
It has no lights it makes no sound
Beneath the darkness you cave in
There’s not even a chance you’ll be alright
No way in hell you’ll make this right
If you ever make a comeback ill be gone
Ill be
Pre Chorus:
Gone, Ill be gone
If you ever make a comeback ill be
Chorus:
Gone
And you will see you’re not
Taking me with you
Not taking me with you
Cause I will be gone
Verse 2:
This sky pours out your tears
Rains down your face
Brings back those
Memories you once held so near
You attempt to forget them
There’s not even a chance you’ll see the light
No way in hell you’ll get through the night
If you ever make a comeback ill be gone
Ill be
(Pre Chorus)
(Chorus)
Bridge:
I will be gone (x2)
If you ever make a comeback ill be
If you ever make a comeback
We’ll never go back to who we were
These words hurt more every time you hear it
I will be gone
(Chorus)
(Outro) (Bring in Bridge Vocals)
Ill be gone
All you will have is this song
