We are a contemporary southern pop rock band based out of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and we cannot wait to share our music with you as soon as possible!

Biography

Hey everyone I'm Will Jackson, thanks for checking us out. My band came together at the Berklee College of music in the Winter of 2014, with Jonathan Elyashiv on Bass, Marc Polit on drums, Robert Salsich on guitar, and myself playing and singing lead. We originally formed just for a one off show of new songs I had been working on, but we all had so much fun together that we decided to make the group a permanent fixture for our music. We all share the same influences of classic rock and southern rock, which makes jam sessions fascinating when we try to mesh the Beatles with the Allman Brothers (It goes well like half the time).  More important than our shared passion for our influences, though, is our obsession with new original music. We have recorded and written material extensively since our formation last year, and we hope to keep putting out high volumes of new music as we gain footing as a group. Nothing excites us more than sharing our music with people ready to listen, and we hope that you can make it to a show and hang out with us. We are now based out of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, a region that is booming with new artists and opportunities, so we will either see you at our home or will be traveling to you soon! 
Thanks so much, 
Will

Lyrics

Rattle Snake

Written By: Bill Jackson

I don't see how you could sink so low
And still get you fangs into my neck
You been running with people I don't know
Tell me baby, what am I supposed to think?

I used to trust you baby
You let me put my hand into your cage
I fed you on good loving and
Look at how I got repaid

Refrain

There's something about you baby
That makes me want to run for cover
You say you're out to please me but i believe
That you're just out to get over

I should have known better
Than to trust those cold blooded eyes
You're a born heartbreaker
The Devil even once wore your disguise

Refrain:
You a rattlesnake, yeah, you a rattlesnake
You a rattlesnake, yeah, you a rattlesnake

Take Your Toll

Written By: Will Jackson

Innocence and love in my mind, will never be the same to me after you
Why'd I even try for you, if you let down all the honest ones before me

OOH You're dragging me down 'cause you want to
OOH You're dragging me down if you say
It takes me higher and higher, my love's found your own
It takes me higher and higher, my love, Take Your Toll on me

Please, let me be the one to say you're holding me longer than I care to stay
I couldn't see the end to me, so I'm bringing the end to you, It's too late

OOH You're dragging me down 'cause you want to
OOH You're dragging me down if you say
It takes me higher and higher, my love's found your own
It takes me higher and higher, my love, Take Your Toll on me

Loving This Thing

Written By: Will Jackson

Where would she be? Holding a sign at the station? Passing her time, with a silence she gives another one to me
Time oh Time, Isn't the right frame of mind

Can you Say I'm Loving this thing that you do?
These spaces can only be filled by you
If I could choose my own way, I'd be right beside you to say
I'm loving this thing that you do

Leave it to me to take you out of graces,
Spin you around on a notion that often goes up and shoots back down
Look down so you don't see
What you were never meant to be

Can you Say I'm Loving this thing that you do?
These spaces can only be filled by you
If I could choose my own way, I'd be right beside you to say
I'm loving this thing that you do

Read the Signs

Written By: Will Jackson

I've fallen too many times
Saving you from reaching the ground
I hold my breath when there's nothing left to say to you

Read the Signs, it's the lonely ones who never let go
Innocence Child, Read the Signs,
It's the lonely ones who never let go of this world

Shake your head and fall from the dream
Has the shattered heart left no trace?
Take shelter in me, and no longer feel the fire

Read the Signs, it's the lonely ones who never let go
Innocence Child, Read the Signs,
It's the lonely ones who never let go of this world

They Will Rise

Written By: Will Jackson

Tell them now, where you've been
Hard to cry, when the heart's bled dry
They will rise
Believe what you want, you can't be wrong
Draw your sigh, read the signs
They will rise

If ever I needed someone,
To give just a little taste of truth
If ever I needed someone to tell me, its now
They will rise, they will rise

Ripped at the seams, caught in between
Love and hate, pride and faith
They will rise
Never fear, what got you here
Look above, I'm sure the time will come
They will rise

If ever I needed someone,
To give just a little taste of truth
If ever I needed someone to tell me, its now

Moon Child

Written By: Will Jackson

It's raining over Broad Street, Have we dared to stay?
Have we dared to disappear in the vacant sun of May?
It's so hard to break away
A year to please the soul, we never lost a day
We never lost desire, to make each other stay
How'd we ever get this way?

OOH don't burn your feet on the bottom line
OOH or hit your head where highest dreams fly
Moon Child fly, Watch you dance by the lover's light
Free yourself for a little while
Moon Child fly, just give me time to reconcile
I'll come back for you if you do

The moon, she shines with passion,
The night is all but gone
The night has left us laying, in the dew upon the lawn
How I wish it could go on

OOH don't burn your feet on the bottom line
OOH or hit your head where highest dreams fly
Moon Child fly, Watch you dance by the lover's light
Free yourself for a little while
Moon Child fly, just give me time to reconcile
I'll come back for you if you do
