BandRockPop

A CT Shoreline-based band playing Pop Rock. The band, started in 2004, plays all original songs that you just can't get out of your head.

Biography

Five guys from a small town in southeastern Connecticut came together in 2003 with a common passion for music. In the amount of time since, they have put together a precociously mature sound of their own style of rock. It's not hard nor soft, but it is tight, at times funky and always easy to like.

The band is led by frontman Zach Lockwood, who writes both the lyrics and music for the group's growing repertoire of original music. Originally the band's drummer, Lockwood now plays guitar, harmonica, and provides the lead vocals. Zach Thomas contributes backup vocals, plays tenor sax and guitar. James McCawley plays electric and upright bass. Stephen Hackett adds piano and organ and Tom Koski is behind the drums. All five members are now high school juniors.

They have played regularly for the past two years including such well known venues as Toad's Place (New Haven,CT) The Webster Theater (Hartford, CT) Saratoga Springs City Center,
( Saratoga Springs, NY) Pepsi Arena (Albany,NY) and other regional sites. Their recording has been limited to amateur studios, yet they have managed to distribute enough demo CD's to create a modest, but loyal and growing fan base. Their music has been recognized by Nashville singer/songwriter Chad Warrix as well as international jazz singer Allan Harris. The band has performed as the opening act for many accomplished musicians including Ari Hest (Colombia), Martin Sexton, and Keller Williams. All members of the band hope the best for the future and to play as many live shows as possible. Thomas sums up the band's hopes with, “We’d like it to go as far as it will take us.”

Lyrics

Carolina

Written By: Zinc

Walking down on Sounds Beach
It seems that everyone is so incomplete
And then I see you standing over there
Five foot five and long blonde hair
You know you don’t see girls like her very much
She moves like June and she talks like March

Oh I know that I was wrong
I couldn’t see through you
You know I’m strange but then again
That’s just the way I am
Seek a change and start again

Carolina
I see your face in everything
Carolina
Maybe I’ll see you again someday

Every time I see you
Its like your always in my head
But after this summer
Well I know that I wont ever see you again

It’s all my fault, It’s all my fault
But I’m beggin’ you please to stay with me

Oh I know that I was wrong
I couldn’t see through you
You know I’m strange but then again
That’s just the way I am
Seek a change and start again

Carolina
I see your face in everything
Carolina
Maybe I’ll see you again someday

I can’t believe that you’re leaving now
I want you to stay for awhile
It’s that I have to say
I don’t wanna say goodbye

Carolina
I see your face in everything
Oh my my…

Carolina
Oh my my….

Maybe I’ll see you again someday
