Biography

Bio

Spring, 2005. San Francisco-based guitarist Peter Scott invites best friend and vocalist Joshua Young to listen to some of his latest songs. A few afternoon sessions around Scott’s kitchen table quickly become weekly rehearsals and, in June, the duo gets to work on a record at The Rec Room Studios in Los Angeles. With the addition of friends and fellow musicians Christian Williams (drums), Alex Kelly (piano, cello) and Travis Craig (bass), You Said Saturday is born. With complimenting musical talents and a strong allegiance to “the song” the group displays its finer qualities on its eponymous debut. Mixed by Joe Chiccarelli and anchored by Young’s smoky, intoxicating voice, the EP’s lush piano melodies and backbeats make for a casual but vibrant experience. You Said Saturday features eight songs that will stick with you, including the gently upbeat “Orbit” and the rich, lyrical crescendos of “Rope Swing.” Upon release of the EP, world-famous Bay Area radio station KFOG took notice of the album and placed opening track “Seaside” on their local scene compilation. “KFOG’s Local Scene 2” combines fresh new talent from all facets of the San Francisco music scene, and helps benefit Music in Schools Today.
Now that the first steps have been taken, You Said Saturday continues to grow and develop their musical vision. The musical and personal chemistry between these five individuals drives the group to not simply rely on a solid recording, but to continue to create new songs and push the live act into another atmosphere. Frontman Joshua Young’s stage presence can only be described as “pure honest energy” and is sure to hypnotize even the most questioning of onlookers. Combine this with Scott’s songwriting and the band’s cohesiveness, and one is left with a performance that covers all points of the pop spectrum.
Having already played at many San Francisco venues including Slim’s, The Bottom of the Hill, and The Rickshaw Stop; the group has also ventured up and down the West Coast and sets its sights to the rest of the country. In the coming months, You Said Saturday will be looking to share its music with the rest of the world and hopes you can be there to enjoy it.

Lyrics

Orbit

Written By: Peter Scott

“orbit”
written by Peter James Scott

thinking ‘bout the afterlife
thinking that I’d be alright
with you there
racing for the aero plane
orbiting the world again
and you’re there

and I’m way
way up high
tonight
I love my life
tonight

I fell down hard
and broke some bones
fell down hard
and broke some bones

and I’m way
way up high
tonight
I love my life
tonight

flickering city light
fading warm with summer nights
and you’re there
silhouette countryside
pulls my heart alive when you’re there

and I’m way
way up high
tonight
I love my life
tonight

I fell down hard
and broke some bones
fell down hard
and broke some bones

Everyone Is Here With Me

Written By: Peter Scott

“everyone is here with me”
written by Peter James Scott

my heart aches for you
it’s never been fair
what’s left to compare me to
is beyond repair

everyone is here with me
it’s summertime again
everyone that’s dear to me
let summertime begin

my heart breaks for you
it’s gone too far
my voice cries for you
and there you are

everyone is here with me
it’s summertime again
everyone that’s dear to me
let summertime begin

Safe and Sound

Written By: Peter Scott

“safe and sound”
written by Peter James Scott

we watched the rain
come half way down again
safe and sound
we’re safe and sound

I’ll wrap you in
my best shirt

the thought never once
crossed my mind you know
no harm done to anyone

yeah

Ropeswing

Written By: Peter Scott

“rope swing”
written by Peter James Scott

if I promise
to sing along
would you play
your favorite song
for me
in your room
for me
in your room
with me

I’ve got a headache
that nothing cures
I found a rope swing
and I think it’s yours
so
after school
we’ll swing high up in the trees
after school
that’s when my headache always leaves
after school
I found a cure

play
your favorite song
for me
in your room
with me
in your room
with me

I
will
sing to you
I will
your favorite song
your favorite song
