TOWNLINE are a four piece Americana phenomenon that celebrate the true tradition of rock and roll in both their music and attitude.

Biography

Formed in 2003, TOWNLINE wants to show the world that good old fashioned rock and roll is not dead. Consisting of Serena Prine (lead vocals), Nicolas Lesyk (guitars), Greg Zack (bass) and Allan Colavecchia (drums, vocals), this quartet fuses vintage rock and roll, blues and contemporary rhythms. They have had beyond average success, sharing stages with some of the music’s hottest acts including The Trews, Three Days Grace, Grady, Queens of the Stone Age, Thornley and Ted Nugent.

In February 2005, TOWNLINE picked up and moved to Austin, Texas to begin writing and pre-production for their much anticipated debut release. While spending time in the Lone Star State, the band co-wrote a track with Guns’n’Roses guitar slinger Gilby Clarke, while another song, “The Cool” was a gift from good friend and U2 mega producer, Daniel Lanois.

Serena Prine is Townline’s rock vocalist extraordinaire. Singing since the age of 3, her influences include The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. Serena is also one of Townline's main songwriters.

Nicolas Lesyk, who grabs the guitar by his teeth (literally) became a musician at the age of nine. A key contributor to the band’s songwriting, Nick drives the band's unique sound.

Greg Zack lays down his own brand of rhythmic and pulsating basslines with influences from John Paul Jones and John Entwistle.

Allan Colavecchia has spent the last twenty years honing his craft and is now a proud endorsee of Sabian cymbals and Yamaha Drums.

Lyrics

Into The Wind

Written By: Lesyk/Prine/Thomson

I can't stop thinking
My mind just keeps sinking
Deep down underneath the dirt
In a hard rain keeps falling
My heart beats muddy waters
There's no telling what could happen now

I'm moving on
Can't stay here too long

I don't wanna be sad and lonely
Draggin' on with my feet behind me
Singin' songs about the broken hearted
Try my luck and throw my cards in
Oh into the wind

Like a stray dog need not worry
'cause I'll sleep where night takes me
No mothers, no fathers can keep me here

I'm moving on
Can't stay here too long

I don't wanna be sad and lonely
Draggin' on with my feet behind me
Singin' songs about the broken hearted
Try my luck and throw my cards in
Headin' down to South Carolina
Leave my troubles where no one can find them
When I hit those city limits
I'll be gone yeah baby into the wind

No more sitting with my head in my hands
No more wasting time, gonna burn the map
I got my foot down on the gas
Gonna keep on driving 'til that road ends

Turn A Blind Eye

Written By: Lesyk/Prine/Thomson

Rest stop, twenty miles ahead
Running as fast as I can
I'm so tired of this dead end road,
but there ain't no stoppin' now

Oh feelin' like a misfit
Oh I've been kicked around

How can you know when a landslide's coming to bury your mountainside?
Where do you go when a cold wind's blowing in the middle of July?
Yeah maybe I'll let it move right through me
Maybe I'll turn a blind eye

Your voice lives under my skin
I try but I can't shake these
Broken smiles and gypsy miles
Bruises you can't see
