Biography

The chemistry first and most of all comes from the love and belief in the music we write and want to perform to the world.
Heart, soul and passion in the music, the lyrics and the delivery of each song, we live it and we write it!
Through life and love we find our influence and aspirations to express ourselves the way that we do.
We have worked with BIG names and Little names, played over most of our country and know enough of the music business to know how it works.
Sure we want fame and glory but most importantly we want the world to hear our views through our music.
We have had a wide range of musical influences through our upbringing and hold great respect for all songwriters... recording artists or not.

Samuel Vincent was born in Mildura, Victoria.
From a young age he became a guitar virtuoso winning many awards in all styles of guitar playing.
He has toured with many acclaimed artists both nationally and internationally.
Samuel has also evolved into a talented music producer, producing all of Van Diemens songs in VD's own recording studio in Sydney.

Jamie Lindsay was born in Launceston, Tasmania(Van Diemens Land).
He started playing guitar at age 8 and soon discovered it to be the perfect tool to express him self and more imortantly write songs.
At age 19 he released two independent country E.P's and toured in Australia and Asia.
He made the transition from country to rock after realizing that he could not only write it, but sing it too. His voice had matured and he became more in control of what he wanted to sing.

In 2000 they met on the live circuit while playing in many different rock out fits.
They soon began writing together and shaping the style for the now Van Diemen.

Lyrics

Taking Me Higher

Written By: Samuel Vincent/Jamie Lindsay

Taking me higher

Excuse me for a moment,
I will only be a moment,
Taking me higher, off the ground,
(She’s) Taking me higher, heaven bound,

I’m standing here, your standing there,
You shed a tear! I’m short of air,
If I were a rainbow, you’d be my pot of gold,
You swear my name, all for me,
And I’ll do the same, for you,
Let the time stand still,
For a love so real,

Excuse me for a moment,
I will only be a moment,
Taking me higher, off the ground,
(She’s) Taking me higher, heaven bound,

I look in your eyes, all that I see,
A clear blue sky, reflection of me,
I want to live this life, standing by your side.

Excuse me for a moment,
I will only be a moment,
Taking me higher, off the ground,
(She’s) Taking me higher, heaven bound,

My arms will be your shelter,
My heart will be your home,
And every single moment,
Will be our very own,

Excuse me for a moment,
I will only be a moment,
Taking me higher, off the ground
(She’s) Taking me higher, heaven bound,
(She’s) Taking me higher, inside out,
(She’s) Taking me higher, here and now!

Fallen Into You

Written By: Jamie Lindsay

Fallen into You

No it’s not the end of the world,
But I thought that you should know,
That I’ve fallen into you,
And I can’t get out,

When your kiss touched my lips,
I felt the chain around me break,
I’m going deeper in to you,
With every breath you take,

But darling don’t be afraid,
If you hear your name,
Whispered inside you,
I’ve fallen into you,
I’ve fallen into you,
I’ve fallen into,

I feel the rhythm shake my bones,
From the beating of your heart,
I see the wounds that never heal,
When you’ve been torn apart,

If this is all a crazy dream,
Well I don’t ever want to wake,
Co’s I’m gong deeper into you,
With every breath you take,

But darling don’t be afraid,
I’m calling out your name,
Deep down inside you,
I’ve fallen into you,
I’ve fallen into you,
I’ve fallen into,

So darling don’t be afraid,
Inside you I will stay,
Keep me forever,
I’ve fallen into you,
I’ve fallen into you,
I’ve fallen into you,
I’ve fallen into you,

Back To Where We Started

Written By: Jamie Lindsay

Back To Where We Started

Lets start a new religion,
Tie a message to a pigeon,
Let it fly around the world,
Telling every boy and girl,
God save the king,
And God Save the Queen,
But who will save you?
And who will save me?

Take me back to where we started,
Back to where it all began,
Take me back to where we started,
Where it all began,

I’ve fallen from the cradle,
Rescued by an angel,
She whispers in my ear,
All you see will disappear,
God gave me wings,
To catch the falling soul,
But what it’s like to have one,
That I do not know,

Take me back to where we started,
Back to where it all began,
Take me back to where we started,
Back to where it all began.

And when, we are waiting,
For the first step, the first stroke of time,
Will you remember me?
Believe in me!

I looked into the future,
Got lost in my computer,
These letters in my head,
Spell “Self Destruction Death,
God gave us life,
And he’ll take it away,
If that confuses you,
Then follow me today!

Take us back to where we started,
Back to where it all began,
Take me back to where we started,
Back to where it all began,
Take us back to where we started,
Back to where it all began,
Take me back to where we started,
Back to where it all began,
