Biography

For 19-year-old twins, Max and Spencer Ernst, music has always been an important part of their lives. Growing up in Silver Spring, Maryland, there was always music playing in their home. When they began creating their own music together on piano during their pre-school years, it was obvious that this was not just an interest but also a natural talent. By age ten, they formed a band with some neighborhood friends; their sound heavily influenced by such bands as Third Eye Blind, Coldplay and Incubus.

After playing countless festivals and venues the next couple of years, they placed second in the International Songwriting competition. Word of mouth quickly spread about the band and, as a result, they sold out a 600-capacity show during the pre-sale for a performance in a school auditorium. At the core of it all, the band was motivated by Max and Spencer’s unending desire to make music their life.

As their buzz spread throughout the DC area, Dave Connelly from the band Ebo (Maverick Records) was put in touch with them by their manager Alan Stewart. The creative connection between Dave, Max & Spencer was immediate and resulted in an amazingly hooky, melody-driven demo of 3 songs, recorded in Dave's home studio. Around the same time, producer Chris Keup heard about Max & Spencer through some of his relatives in the DC area. Skeptical about the abilities of a couple of 15 year olds, he first listened to their demo on the way to their first meeting. About halfway through the performance of their first song, Chris knew they were something special and immediately proposed that they come to Charlottesville and record some demo tracks.

After inking a publishing deal with Cherry Lane and getting numerous featured film and TV placements, they began working with producer Stacey Jones (Low v. Diamond, Plain White T’s), founder and singer of American Hi-Fi and drummer for Veruca Salt. This collaboration has led to interest with a Sony imprint that has helped to get the tracks recorded. The band’s self titled e.p. is scheduled for release in the New Year.

Other members of Trustfall include Pat Shine, an extremely talented guitar player from Olney, Md, and hard hitting rock drummer, Greg Mallick, from Rockville, Md. If you haven't seen them yet, make sure you check out this young band’s high intensity show.

Lyrics

All My Life

Written By: Trustfall

I can see as darkness falls. The distance is written on your face. I can see from the paths we walk. The space between gets deeper everyday. I believe you've got me wrong. So burn all your photographs and listen.. All my life you've been trying to to tell me what I'm missing. I'm not listening. It doesn't make a difference. I'm different okay. All my life I'm the only one whose trying to fix it. You're not listening. I'm trying to make a difference. I'm different okay. Do you see me when you see yourself? The regret is written on your face. I can't be anyone else. For years I've been trying to explain. And I believe you've got me wrong. So burn all your photographs and listen.. All my life you've been trying to to tell me what I'm missing. I'm not listening. It doesn't make a difference. I'm different okay. All my life I'm the only one whose trying to fix it. You're not listening. I'm trying to make a difference. I'm different okay. I have been broken and you are the reason so think this through. I've got my reasons for taking me beatings I can't get through.. And I believe you've got me wrong. All my life you've been trying to to tell me what I'm missing. I'm not listening. It doesn't make a difference. I'm different okay. All my life I'm the only one whose trying to fix it. You're not listening. I'm trying to make a difference. I'm different, okay?

Voices

Written By: Trustfall

You sit alone and back away while everyone's talking about the way you hide your face.. nobody knows you. It's getting darker in your skies.. Can't find the sunrise. Where will you go from here? You're not destined to be alone. If you can just hang on. You've got to get out. Show your face. Just a few more years, you're out of this place. They laugh at you and call you names. You start to believe them. You and they are both the same, but you cannot see that.. only you can be the one who fixes your problems. Where will you go from here? You're not destined to be alone. If you can just hang on. You've got to get out. Show your face. Just a few more years, you're out of this place. You're destined to be someone. You're life has just begun. The voices you hear when you walk down the hall. They don't mean nothing at all.. You've got to get out. You've got to stop the fade from yesterday. You've got to get out. You've got to stop the fade.. yeah, yeah, yeah. You're not destined to be alone. If you can just hang on. You've got to get out. You're not destined to be alone. If you can just hang on. You've got to get out. Show your face. Just a few more years, you're out of this place. You're destined to be someone. You're life has just begun. The voices you hear when you walk down the hall. They don't mean nothing at all..

Tell Me It's Over

Written By: Trustfall

I watch the clock. The hands are moving so slow. There's another day gone. Am I getting closer to saving me from myself? My only secret. I've given up on giving up and gave it all away. I've run myself in circles but nothing seems to change. There's no saving me from myself. Tell me it's over. Tell me it's over. When will this story end? Cut from a magazine. Jaded at seventen. Queue the forgotten. Tell me it's over. Silently sober. I wish I could start again. I've got nothing to say, and I can't look away from this.. take back what's missing. All the time that I've lost. If someone had told me, I could have found a way. I'm still trying to find a way. Tell me it's over. Tell me it's over. When will this story end? Cut from a magazine. Jaded at seventen. Queue the forgotten. Tell me it's over. Silently sober. I wish I could start again. I've got nothing to say, and I can't look away from this.. take back what's missing.

Come Back

Written By: Trustfall

Come back. I didn't wanna let you go. Hold back. I let you down. Been in denial. It's so hard to see your face. And all the while, you were my worst mistake. Now that you're beautiful, now that you're gone. All of these feelings are leading me on. So many problems. Come back. I didn't wanna let you go. Hold back. I let you down. We could recover. The scars and the hurt will fade. We'll hide together. Alone in a state of grace. Now that you're beautiful, now that you're here. Now that the moment of our truth is near. There's so many problems. So many problems. Come back. I didn't wanna let you go. Hold back. I didn't mean to let you down. Come back. I didn't wanna let you go. Should of told you that. And I said it again. Didn't want you back. And I said it again. Should of told you that. I didn't want you long ago. So why don't you come back. I didn't wanna let you go. Hold back. I didn't mean to let you down. And you tell me to go, and you tell me to stay. I can't let it go and we're here again. I'm trying to go, and I'm trying to stay. I can't let it go and we're here again. Don't let me down tonight, and I won't let you down tonight.

Drive Home

Written By: Trustfall

You're on the drive home. You're body is exhausted. You're eyes start to close. You couldn't see him walking. There's blood on your windshield. He's on his back when you look back. Oh, what have you done? Is this the way you want it to end? With someone's blood on your hands. Is the pain enough? Is this the way you want it to end? You can't blame God for what you did. Is the pain enough? You're father comes outside. He sees the red and wonders. You say you hit a deer until he sees the T-shirt, stuck in your side mirror. You were to drunk to notice that. Son, what have you done. Is this the way you want it to end? With someone's blood on your hands. Is the pain enough? Is this the way you want it to end? You can't blame God for what you did. Is the pain enough? No, no, no, no. You're gonna regret it. No, no, no, no. You knew he was wounded. No, no, no, no. It's not what you wanted. No, no, no, no. You try to forget it. No, no, no, no. The image is planted. No, no, no, no. And you have to live with it. Is this the way you want it to end? With someone's blood on your hands. Is the pain enough? Is this the way you want it to end? You can't blame God for what you did. Is the pain enough?
