Music is a high energy Rock movement. Bobby Scott on vocals leaves no time for error. Joshua Kennedy (guitar) brings the music alive with his style and delivery. Paul Fenix (bass) and Richard Polmans (drums) are a solid driving rythm section that no one can deny .

Biography

The story of Violet Wild began long before their first show in July 2006 at Last Exit in Tempe, Arizona where they played in front of what was a lot of doubters with low expectations.

The birth of Violet Wild consisted of 3 days on a cruise ship with no way off. Bobby Scott (formerly of Mink Rebellion) and Joshua Kennedy (formerly of the Black Moods) closed the book on their bands and came together with chemistry like nothing they had experienced in their careers. The magic was formed in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in February 2006 and Violet Wild became history in the making. They rushed into the studio to record their first LP and with a rock-n-roll life of only 4 months and no additional members, the LP was recorded by July 2006. Due to uncontrollable circumstances the album was shelved. With determination and hard work, Violet Wild mustered up the means to go back into the studio with accomplished producer Joe Marlett in March of 2007. The band which now had acquired a Richard Polmans on drums began to re-record the album. After diligent work in the studio, the recording was complete.

Since their first show in 2006, the band is set to release their EP in August of 2007, their full LP worldwide in March of 2008 as well as set out for their US tour in February of 2008.

Starting over without the humble comfort of their previous groups, Scott, Kennedy, Polmans and the newest member, James Hanna-Wilson are a passionate electrifying force that’s poised only to get stronger. Their music is well written, crafted, diverse and ready to take on the world. If you don’t know them by now, you will.

“Violet Wild is not a local act” “These guys are ready for what ever lies ahead, they are true contenders to make it big”.
-Robin Nash/ Edge103.9 DJ in Phoenix, AZ.

Lyrics

Bent

Written By: Scott, Mary

Hey, there goes my girlfriend
And my ride home
The angry fruits of the seeds I’ve sown
He took her from me
Yeah, with his upperhand
I guess pretty girls are
In big demand

I’m tired of waitin’
I’m tired of waitin’, oh no

Hey, there goes my lover
With new kid in my place
I’m walking on gravel
Instead of on his face
She did this to me
Just because she can
And now I’m left
Just a shell of a man

I’m tired of waitin’
I’m tired of waitin’, oh
I’m tired of waitin’, uh-huh
You say you want me
then you go and leave me
I finally tell the truth
You don’t believe me
I’m not broken
But I’m just a little bent

Hey, it goes to reason
With all you stupid dudes
That it’s open season
On anything that moves
My lady moves, yeah
From one guy to the next
When you hit the curb
Don’t be too depressed now

[chorus]

Yeah, now I don’t want to ride
Just wanna yell at all the cars
That pass me by
No really, I don’t want to ride
Just wanna yell at all the cars
That pass me by
No really I, I, I, I… Hey

Hey, there goes my girlfriend
And my ride home
The angry fruits of
The seeds I have sown

Concrete Lake

Written By: Scott, Mary

Swinging, human wrecking ball
Concrete might not break your fall
And you’re scream is shoving
knives in my ears
And tell me are you scared to
Finally let the last bit go
And what is it compared to
The greatest fear you’ve ever known
Trying to make a wave
In a concrete lake is harder
Than treading water

You’re killing me
This stupid tragedy
Keeps pulling me down under
And drowning me
In your own misery
I wish you even cared at all

Strong enough you will survive
And you’ll make it out alive
And I wonder where’s the spark
In your eyes
‘Cause you been going under
Deeper than the darkest depth
And I can only wonder
If you could take a deeper breath

Help is on the way
I’m nothing great
Don’t you think it’s better
If we stick together

[chorus]
I wish you were wrong
You keep giving up
And I keep giving in

It doesn’t have to come to this
You’re the type that can’t resist much
Even if you’re stuck in the past, again
You’ll be standing upright
It’s nothing you aint seen before
But you’ve been doing downtime
Wishing there was something more

Help is on the way
I’m nothing great
Don’t you think it’s better
Going down together
Trying to make a wave
In a concrete lake is harder
Than treading water

[chorus]
