Biography

A songwriting project that explodes

In the fast paced world of popular music, bands come and go at a breakneck pace.
Often they struggle for years to find their sound and learn how to be creative as a group.
Usually they find their focus just as the genre they were born from begins to fall out of favor with the public, making them look like they jumped on the band wagon a little too late to make a fresh impression on the media and the pop culture which it speaks to.
Such is the fickle landscape of chasing..."The next big thing"

Underground All Stars is a band that had to be.
The story is unique and unconventional as the individual band members themselves.
In the fall of 2009 Jimmy Farrell contacted Andy Waldeck to begin a songwriting collaboration.
These 2 veteran modern rockers had known each other in the past.
Waldeck's group, Earth to Andy and Farrell's band, No Soap Radio had crossed paths while touring in support of their respective major label debuts.

A mutual respect developed, which brought these two songwriters together for this new collaboration.
As the first few songs came together it was clear that something very special was happening.
A perfect blend of modern rock and pop fusing together in undeniably hook laden songs.
Underground All Stars was born. For over a year the songwriting progressed and more new musical gems uncovered.
It was time to head into the studio & record their debut cd, titled, "People Are Stars".

Every song on 'People Are Stars' is an experience in life that the listener can relate to in their own way.
The undeniable vocals by Andy Waldeck are backed up by the rich, dark & rhythmic textures by guitarist Jimmy Farrell.
Bassist Crix Reardon supplies the rumble in your gut along with the vocal harmonies that deliver a polished, yet indie sound.
Guitarist Mike Maino captures the attention of the audience with melodic & emotional leads that are far to often missing in songs these days. And when it comes to getting pulled in by the heartbeat of the band, drummer Chris "Cujo" O'Hara delivers.

"This is going to be a great year for Underground All Stars" says guitarist Jimmy Farrell. "We've done lots of great things on our own. I can't wait to see what we do together!". With gold records, major television and film placements and A-list studio sessions to their credit, it's easy to understand his excitement.

Lyrics

Never Gonna Give You Up

Written By: Andy Waldeck

NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP

What did you want from me?
I can deliver promises.
What does a moment mean?
I’ll tell you the truth this time instead.

But I’ll know for sure
Nothing’s gonna bring us down so low
Can I get a message through?
The only thing I wanna say to you

I’M NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP
I’M NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP

If I was an angry man
I could just leave it all behind
I need you to understand
I’m gonna be here for you this time

But I know myself
I wonder how I got this far without your help
I never really thought it through
The only thing I wanna say to you

I’M NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP
I’M NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP

It’s up to you to find the grace
and lead your heart into a better place
It’s gonna take a lot of love
and this is the one that you’ve been thinkin of
Before we lose the perfect gift
The greatest way we’re gonna have to live
So baby believe in one another

I’M NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP
I’M NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP

Save Me

Written By: Andy Waldeck

SAVE ME

It’s not enough for me to bend
Not enough to offer you the bitter end
For all we know it’s true
Who made you look another way
Nobody knows

And all at once you came around
And all the other memories that shadowed down
But if the shoes will fit
Who made you wear them out
Nobody knows

I don’t ever want to be the one to go
Don’t know what you’re waiting for
Only want to be in love
Only wanted you to

SAVE ME ONE MORE TIME
THROW ME A LINE

It’s not enough to be alone
Not enough to wake me up and send me home
If everything’s a game
How can you play for real
Nobody knows

I don’t ever want to be the one to go
Don’t know what you’re waiting for
Only want to be in love
Only wanted you to

SAVE ME ONE MORE TIME
THROW ME A LINE

More faith from me
I never knew it’s what you need
It’s hard to know
You don’t believe
Just tell me where you want to be

I don’t ever want to be the one to go
Don’t know what you’re waiting for
Only want to be in love
Only wanted you to

SAVE ME ONE MORE TIME
THROW ME A LINE

Better Without You

Written By: Andy Waldeck

BETTER WITHOUT YOU

Staring at the phone
Thinkin how it used to be
Every now and then our luck would turn around
and we’d find a way to work it out
But now it’s getting old
You don’t do enough for me
I’m not gonna waste another day
When I know that something good’s coming my way

Why don’t you let it go
I’ve been waiting all night
and there’s something you gotta know

I’m Better Without You
Cause without you
No one's gonna bring me down
And it’s so true, that without you
I’m feeling good right now
Well it’s over, you can go now
Don’t wanna see you hangin around
Cause I’m Better off Without You now

You were never there
Even standing next to me
Didn’t really know what you were gonna do
Even when I say I’m over you
Well I can play along
But I don’t like these stupid games
Well I’m not gonna say that I’m pretending
Cause you don’t believe the story’s ending

Why don’t you let it go
I’ve been waiting all night
and there’s something you gotta know

I’m Better Without You
Cause without you
No one’s gonna bring me down
It’s so true, that without you
I’m feeling good right now
It’s over, you can go now
Don’t wanna see you hangin around
Cause I’m Better off Without You
and I just forgot about you
Yes I’m Better off Without You now

Why don’t you let it go
I’ve been waiting all night
and there’s something you gotta know

I’m Better Without You
Cause without you
No one’s gonna bring me down
It’s so true, that without you
I’m feeling good right now
It’s over, you can go now
Don’t wanna see you hangin around
Cause I’m Better off Without You
and I just forgot about you
Yes I’m Better off Without You now

Now's Your Chance

Written By: Andy Waldeck

Now’s Your Chance

Wait for Me
I know you used to be a tease
Now everyone is asking me
How can I believe in dreams like these

Now’s Your Chance to lean over me with your fine romantic words
Don’t look now

YOU’RE FALLING IN LOVE
AND NOW YOU CAN’T GIVE IT AWAY
ALL THAT LOVE
YOU KNOW YOU CAN’T GIVE IT AWAY
FROM NOW ON,
I’M IN THE PLACE THAT YOU WANT ME TO BE WHEN YOU KNOW HOW TO GET WHAT YOU NEED

Calls for you
I know it’s more than I should do
If we can even see the truth
There’s nothing more that I can do for you

Now’s your chance to get everything that you thought you’d never have
Don’t look now

YOU’RE FALLING IN LOVE
AND NOW YOU CAN’T GIVE IT AWAY
ALL THAT LOVE
YOU KNOW YOU CAN’T GIVE IT AWAY
FROM NOW ON
I’M IN THE PLACE THAT YOU WANT ME TO BE WHEN YOU KNOW HOW TO GET WHAT YOU NEED

If we fall so hard it hurts
We can only makes things worse
If we run away

YOU’RE FALLING IN LOVE
AND NOW YOU CAN’T GIVE IT AWAY
ALL THAT LOVE
YOU KNOW YOU CAN’T GIVE IT AWAY
I’M IN THE PLACE THAT YOU WANT ME TO BE WHEN YOU KNOW HOW TO GET WHAT YOU NEED
