Unkle Bazz

BandPopSinger/Songwriter

I am an acoustic based singer/songwriter, solo artist, delivering melodic pop/rock tunes with a hint of melancholy, a spoonful of inspired longing and a dash of homegrown NZ flavour.

Biography

I have come from 20 years in the NZ music industry, gigging with original and cover bands alike, playing mostly pub gigs but i've played at almost everything from weddings to festivals, birthdays to corporate roadshows... It's been a long road to where i am today, and to finally be comfortable enough to perform a repertoire of my songs, by myself...
Not only have i been influenced and inspired by all the musicians i have spent time with and gigged with, but i was especially moved by the grunge movement back in the late 80s early 90s... Although this isn't reflected in my music (ok there maybe a hint of grungyness in some of them) i respected a lot of the themes that grunge portrayed... Having said that, i guess what i got from that is Honesty and that is what i think sets me apart. Basically i just love to sing and you'll find me doing it just about anywhere i can...

Used
Music & Lyrics by B. Thatcher

I remember when days were cold and nights were colder and everything was simple
No thoughts of you and me or how our lives were ‘sposed to be
Became something else…
How…?

‘Cos I’ve been like rain
When I’d bleed for you
Now I’ll be the sunshine
Burning through

Of course a happy ending’s only in the books I’ve read
I’ve known this all along
But now I’m moving on and never have I felt so strong
This mess has all been left…
Behind…

‘Cos I’ve been like rain
When I’d bleed for you
Now I’ll be the sunshine
Burning through

But man I feel so used
I feel so used
So used…

Things could be easier

Things could be easier…
Music & Lyrics by B. Thatcher

What about the things we used to say?
We always said we’d be someone someday.
How about the way used to talk?
I never thought our dreams had been so small.

But nothings changed and I need something more…

So I’m…
Cruising, gotta leave today x2

I know that things could be easier… x2

No-one ever said we’d have it all
We never thought our dreams would ever fall
Good too see your happy in the end
My friend the times we shared I will defend

It’s not the same but I need something more …

So I’m…
Cruising, gotta leave today x2

I know that things could be easier… x2
I’ve struggled and I’ve tried, I gave it all,
It doesn’t mean I’ll quit I’ll carry on
But I just think things could be easier,
So much easier…

Set List

I have probably 30+ originals that i mix with covers from time to time.. An ordinary cover gig would be three hours with three sets of around 16-20 songs....
An original gig would be about the same but with 10-12 songs per set...
