A Rock n' Roll band with a harder edge that loves to groove and see the crowd move.

Biography

Tobacco Mosaic began years ago in the hills of West Virginia. I, Frankie Price, a research scientist unhappy with my surroundings, packed up my vision, dreams, band name, guitars, and went to Berklee.

I rushed into a new life and band line-up that lasted for several years. Once in Boston I met an amazing drummer from Seattle named Chris Johnson. The two of us endured numerous "musicians" over the next few years and eventually found Brian Allison on bass.

Now that I have graduated and moved to NYC, I have had the fortunate luck of finding a rare talent in a vocalist by the name of Josh Gaboian. His understanding of both theory and songwriting has made him a perfect fit in the band.

Finally, wtih the addition of Greg "Danger" Settino on drums (we stole him from another band just because we had to have him) we are ready to get back into the groove of things.

Several songs have already been written for the new album which we plan on recording in the near future and we are looking forward to rocking for you again soon. (See http://www.tobaccomosaic.com to check on what's already available.) Rock On Mosaic Music Mob and keep listening!.

INFLUENCES:
Tobacco Mosaic has been heavily influenced by monumental bands such as Black Sabbath, Pantera, Led Zeppelin, Dream Theater, Lamb of God, Tool, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Prince, Eric Clapton, and AC/DC.

SOUND:
The thick, guitar driven sound is pushed to extremes by a loud Les Paul and mighty Marshall Cabinets alongside a tight bass drum and a thunderous low-end bass. All underneath the mightly roar of a melodic lead vocal.

Lyrics

Blue to Blind

Written By: Frankie Price

I’m so empty inside
What was it that changed your eyes?

It’s true that I lied
When you were satisfied
What I thought was right
20:20’s not in my hindsight

An arrow through my heart
Once again missed the mark
In time I’m told
Love hides the past

Blue to Blind

I’m so empty inside
What was it that changed your eyes?

Blue to Blind

What was it?

My love lay down
As insomnia went around
Lessons let go and caught
I’m just your afterthought

Looking forward to the day
There’s nothing left to say
In time I’m told
Love hides the past

Blue to Blind

Medicine

Written By: Frankie Price & Aaron Brych

No one knows where I'll be tomorrow
No one knows what's headed my way
I'd better take heed, I'd better take precaution
I'd better take Medicine for my pain

It's almost as if someone put a catalyst
Into my cup of time, I'm late, no time to wait
Go on without me I'll be just fine
Love me; hold me, breakdown, and cry

It's almost time so take my hand
And walk with me to the promised land
Where I'll wait to stand in the circle of the make-beliver
Don't leave me here to die, breakdown, and cry

Why won't you trust me?
I've got nothing to hide, no nothing at all
There's no record, clean as a whistle
And it's my right to fight and live my life
And you can never take that away from me
Because I like my Medicine or free

On & On

Written By: Frankie Price & Heather Miley

Drowning in complacency
Where I run it finds me
So dark, I try to hide
It kills me from the inside

Step by step
Left right left
I no longer need
This to help me keep on going...
On & On & On

I'm a part of two or more
No question what I'm for
Push away so much at stake
Choices take so long to make

Take a look out through my eyes
You're on my list of good-byes
Forever losing, I'm going to fail
Welcome to my private Hell
