Biography

The U.S. band WHITEHOUSE appears with a blend of English and Spanish lyricism and with a unique blend of influences crossing over classical, pop-rock, and classic rock styles.
Although they are no strangers to worldwide publicity (a variety of music publications and air-play around the world), they have taken more affirmative action by securing a television spot with "The Shield".
The Shield is played on the FX network in the US and other networks Internationally. With several Emmy nominations, and the contributions of extended roles from notable film actors such as Glenn Close and Forest Whitaker, it provided a great publicity opportunity for the band.
For their new single Gonna Make It Up To You they had Grammy winning producer Randy Miller on board.
The supporting harmonies are sung by Pop and Jazz singer Sandy Stewart.

The games that people play

Whitehouse

The Games that People Play

I got a call from Sarah, an old school friend
Said she was back in town, it was time we met again
And I wondered how she was, so many years had passed
She had always been the kind who could make things last

She told me she’d been married
And of the kids he’d left behind
She was doing better now, him they couldn’t find
She was doing better now, but Lord did it take time

I met old Mr Jenkins, he always makes me smile
Carrying a big old box, we stopped and talked a while
He mentioned J. F. Junior, the curse and the young bride
But then again he said, were millions for whom nobody cried

He had a serious problem
“The damn thing went and stopped
Fifty years of company," he said "of this old wooden clock
Fifty years of company, the damn thing is all I got"

Don’t go looking for the reasons,
‚Cause in time they’ll fade away
And the rules, they just keep changing everyday
In the games that people play

I walked into Harry’s place, to leave the day behind
Saw James sitting there with something on his mind
He asked me join him, which I was glad to do
He was shinning like a dime, all polished up and new
He had something to tell me
Personal, no less
He’d suggested marriage, James simply said yes
He’d suggested marriage, James smiled and just said yes.

Don’t go looking for the reasons,
For in time they’ll fade away
And the rules, they just keep changing everyday
In the games that people play

Step right up and take a gamble
Don’t keep yourself locked away
Take a chance and let the dice roll as they may
In the games that people play

The games people play . . . .

Don’t go looking for the reasons . . . .

Cuentan que el

Whitehouse

Cuentan que el

Se levanta con el sueno el los ojos,
Y el fresco olor de la manana, que aun no nacio.
Hay una barca en el puerto que le espera,
Que como siempre en sus suenos, el la beso.

El la saluda desde su ventana,
Ella lo entiende como nadie mas,
Fueron muchas las horas que pasaron juntos,
Y muchos los apuros en alta mar.

Y cuentan que el, no sabe lo que es el miedo,
Dicen que sale, que no importa como este la mar.
Juran que goza luchando con las olas,
Y que con ella a su lado, todo le da igual.

Hay quien le espera al caer la tarde,
Muchos hay que dudan si volvera,
Ya regresaron con sus barcas vacias,
Nadie lo ha visto, esta mala la mar.

Y el viento sopla mas que de costumbre,
Las olas cubren su embarcacion,
Ya queda poco se acerca por el puerto,
Y lo ven sonriendo, junto al timon.

Y cuentan que el, no sabe lo que es el miedo,
Dicen que sale, que no importa como este la mar.
Juran que goza luchando con las olas,
Y que con ella a su lado, todo le da igual.

Nobody to blame

Written By: Jose Amigo / Whitehouse


Whitehouse

Nobody to blame

He tried to tell her, and she thought it right
Hand in hand they marched on through the night
He knew the answers, she'd hoped to find
It'll just take a little time
Just a little bit of time
It wasn't easy, but how could they fail
Though love can blind you, just like a veil
He knew the prize was worth the strain
There was so very much to gain
So much love was there to gain

And they flew so high
They lifted off the ground
They locked themselves away
In the magic they had found
Every day they tried to make paradise their aim
In the end there's nobody to blame
There's never anyone to blame

Avoiding the shadows, they struggled on
Went up and down, did right and wrong
Misunderstandings were pushed aside
And the gap became too wide
You can not bridge a gap so wide

Though they flew so high ...

Nothing unusual, no big event
Only time and the way that it was spent
They missed the signs to walk away
Circumstances made them stay
Much too late to break away

And they flew so high ...

Mal de amores

Written By: Jose Amigo/Whitehouse

Whitehouse

MAL de AMORES

They never told me and I never asked
Fell in the deep end, she was a must

Corazon loco, busca el ayer
Y se que tampoco mañana allaré

Mal de amores – so strong
How could the way to heaven be wrong
Mal de amores – for so long
Nothing but heartache baby, now you’re gone

Escucha el grito que sale de mi
Todo se apaga si no estás aqui

Lost in her kisses, drowned in her eyes
She fulfilled my wishes with paradise

Mal de amores – so strong
How could the way to heaven be wrong
Mal de amores – for so long
Nothing but heartache baby, now you’re gone

Marcha atras, no te vayas vuelve ya
Let me be there where you are

Mal de amores – so strong
How could the way to heaven be wrong
Mal de amores – for so long
Nothing but heartache baby, now you’re gone

Alright

Whitehouse

Alright

They had all the training they know what we can take
Years of learning oh it`s still a fake

Programmes for us all policies a mile long
But they won`t hear our call that priorities are wrong

But it's alright now baby
Let me tell you now that it's alright
It's alright now honey
Don`t you worry none cause it`s alright

See them on tv their willingness intense
But anyone can see they lack the common sense

They make all the rules then they tell us we should choose
They must think we're fools cause every way we look at it we lose

But it`s alright now baby ...
Let me tell you now that it's alright
It's alright now honey
Don`t you worry none cause it`s alright
It’s alright now baby
Don`t you worry none cause it`s alright

Look at their inventions poison and technology
Half the world is starving but they just refuse to see

They are in control they think I have no choice
But they won`t take my soul though they may silence my voice

But it`s alright now baby
Shake it down now, everything is alright
It`s alright now honey
Don`t you worry none cause it`s alright
It’s alright now baby
Don`t you worry none cause it`s alright
...
It`s the way you take me, the way you tell me it`s alright
We can make it, if you just let me step inside
I know you`re shaking, for all your wounds are open wide
But I can say alright.

But it`s alright now baby
Shake it down now, everything is alright
It`s alright now honey
Don`t you worry none cause it`s alright
It’s alright now baby
Don`t you worry none cause it`s alright

DEEP

So here I am waiting again to see your sweet, sweet smile
Stolen moments that we share it’s always for a while

It wasn’t meant to be they say it’s blind, we could not see
And now it’s much too late we’ve fallen deep in you & me

I hear the ticking of the clock and I can feel you near
I long to start and never stop and always keep you here

It seems so real to me let’s make it last eternally
We can not turn back now we’ve fallen deep in you & me

It wasn’t meant to be they say it’s blind, we could not see
And now it’s much too late we’ve fallen deep in you & me

So here I am waiting again to see your sweet, sweet smile
Stolen moments that we share it’s always for a while

It seems so real to me let’s make it last eternally
We can not turn back now we’ve fallen deep in you & me

It wasn’t meant to be they say it’s blind, we could not see
And now it’s much too late we’ve fallen deep in you & me

Getting old

Written By: Jose Amigo / Whitehouse

Whitehouse

Getting Old

If they took away the fears
And allowed us what we have lived
So that we could face our present
For our past was not too pleasent
Now there's little more that we can give

And after having done it all
As everyone must do for sure
We could find a few things free
And the pesioners i.d. would open every door

Maybe then getting old
Would be more reasonable
A milder thing, a longer lasting fling
Maybe then getting old
Would be a smooth gentle progress
A finishing bliss, an ending with a kiss

If we all lived among friends
Who at least once in a while
Would just pass some words around
And would let us make some sound
Not make us look senile

Maybe then getting old
Would be more reasonable
A milder thing, a longer lasting fling
Maybe then getting old
Would be a smooth gentle progress
A finishing bliss, an ending with a kiss

Homeward Bound

Written By: Jose Amigo / Whitehouse

Whitehouse

Homeward bound

I knew the moment that she walked in
She would blow my mind away
I could leave or I could die I knew it well
So I decided I would stay

She caught my glance within an instance
I never thought it’d be so soon
And when she placed herself at the bar
Well I swear, my brains just left the room

“Step right up, sit right down
Don’t let your head
Spin round and round.
Loosen up, don’t you frown
Take it easy baby
We’re homeward bound”

Now some would say that I am just crazy
But they weren’t there, how could they tell
And when she smiled over I knew right there so well
All my senses went to hell

Now some may say that I am a little loco
But I knew just what to do
And I could talk until you’re pink in the face
But I know I never would get through

I stumbled over wondering what to say
Trying not to give myself away
But it’s so hard just to be natural
When your mind’s been blown away

“Step right up” what?
“sit right down
And don’t let your head
Spin round and round.
Loosen up, don’t you frown
Don’t you worry baby
We’re homeward bound
Step right up” she said

I knew the moment that she walked in
She would blow my mind away
I could leave or I could die I knew it well
So I decided I would stay

I stumbled over wondering what to say
Trying not to give myself away
But it’s so hard just to be natural
When your mind’s been blown away

And she said “step right up” yeah
“Sit right down
Don’t you worry baby
You’re on solid ground
Loosen up yeah, do not frown
Take easy honey
It’s gold you’ve found
“Step right up” she said
“Sit right down
Don’t you worry baby
You’re spinning round and round
Loosen up yeah don’t you frown
Don’t you worry baby
We’re homeward bound”

Now that you are here

Written By: Jose Amigo / Whitehouse

Whitehouse

Now that you're here

I saw her face
I saw her eyes were frozen in gaze
She'd been lost for so long
"Have you come to set right this wrong ?"
I wept in shame
For the things I saw had no name
And when I turned to go, she held me close
And whispered so low:

"Now that you're here, I'll have no fear
I can't take anymore
When you hear the sound of sirens calling The walls around you falling
Then you'll know just what I mean!
When they all line up so the can take you
Day and night they come to break you
Then you'll know just what I mean!
But now that you're here I'll shed no tear
Though I want you to know
I've missed you "

I cursed the world
It was them who gave me this role
I could watch, but not act
I felt like an accessory after the fact
And I wept in shame
I saw hell all over again
And when I turned to go, she held me close
And whispered so low:

"Now that you're here ..."

Gonna Make It Up to You

Written By: Whitehouse / Jose Amigo

WHITEHOUSE

Gonna make it up to you

I know that you have
more than enough reasons
Your disapointment
is well justified
But well you know that
love too has it´s seasons
Sometimes rain,sometimes so fine.

It´s true that I´ve been
blinded by another,
I´ve been letting loose
behind your back,
forgot all that we´d
promised each other,
But now I know I´m
back on the right track.

And from now on
you´ll never need to doubt,
Cause I will tell you,
show you what it´s all about.

I´m goona make it up to you,
I swear this time is true,
I wanna make it up to you,
Let me make it up to you,
Say that we will start anew,
And I will make it up to you.

I admit I´ve
taken you for granted,
And everything is
as bad as it sounds
I cannot believe
the mess I´ve landed,
and I confess,
I´m guilty on all counts.

But from now on
you´ll never need to doubt,
Cause I will tell you,
show you what it´s all about.

I´m goona make it up to you,
I swear this time is true,
I wanna make it up to you,
Let me make it up to you,
Say that we will start anew,
And I will make it up to you.
