BandRockAcoustic

With a sound similar to Howie Day and Guster, these Boston boys have been stirring up quite a buzz. Recently selling out the esteemed Club Capo’s, being scouted by Mix 98.5FM, and selling out of merchandise in the first venue appearance, things are not slowing down for this acoustic rock band.

Biography

Boston is a place where great music can fall beneath the cracks. How is it then that in under a year a band can create such a buzz? Maybe it is the acoustic rock sound, the flexibilty of venues played, or the intensity and passion of Waking Grey. Most would tell you that it is their drive and determination as well as their personality that has garnered them success. Being compared to acts like Guster, Dispatch, Howie Day, and Our Lady Peace, the band has been extremely well recieved in Boston and beyond. The band was so well recieved in fact that in under 6 months Waking Grey was offered spots at CBGB's in NY and Woodstock 5 in S. Africa, bringing together 50,000 people. This determination and love of performance can be seen in all three members of the band. Their lighthearted, yet hearfelt, performances draw fans to them in large numbers and an evergrowing presence can be seen at each show. So in short, the band is more than music, but drive, personality, and pure energy.

Lyrics

Cinnamon

Written By: Keith Griffis + Waking Grey

You are like cinnamon you’re so sugary sweet.

You’re like every dream I have inside my head.
You are like alcohol you intoxicate me

I hear every word you speak inside bed.

When your falling I'll lift you up
When Your calling and I won’t hang up

When your falling I'll lift you up
When Your calling and I won’t hang up on you...

Your Like honesty, I'll stay with you awhile.
I'm content inside your smile and everything you say.
Every word that comes out of your mouth.
Inside my eyes I've never seen a better smile.
Your smile can make me wait a thousand years

When your falling I'll lift you up
When Your calling and I won’t hang up

When your falling I'll lift you up
When Your calling and I won’t hang up on you...

And we say its too much, that we've got to live for to waste it all for their words and the way they want us to be. Its just us in a world full of danger and I believe that love will get us through it all.

When your falling I'll lift you up
When Your calling and I won’t hang up

When your falling I'll lift you up
When Your calling and I won’t hang up on you...

When your falling I'll lift you up
When Your calling and I won’t hang up

When your falling I'll lift you up
When Your calling and I won’t hang up on you...

Waking Grey - Welcome to my world
Verse: Solo guitar with bass overlay

Walk an open road, convinced of what you know
Find the path of least resistance, and let yourself go.

Chorus:
G D F5 C5

G D F5 C5
I hope you stay with what it is they taught you that keeps you satisfied.

G D F5 C5
I hope you get what it is that’s coming to you and never say goodbye
G D F5 C5
Cause I’m not going anywhere without you. I don’t care if I lose it in the fires of time.
G D F5 C5
And I do hope that I get what’s coming to me. And take back the world alive.

Guitar drums and bass ring out….
Verse: Solo guitar with bass overlay

I can’t be fair in my decision to make you aware. And all the things you say aren’t the best when I take them away.
