about

"I like the skillful pairing of exotic-sounding percussion with otherwise rootsy instrumentation. I’ve heard other DJs comment about that as well."

--May 07; Kim Clark, Music Director WNCW (Asheville, NC) 

Introducing femo rock, a melding of the confessional aspect of emo songwriting and the more electric format of rock.  Friends describe the music as ranging from ethereal to savage, a wide-ranging mix of musical emotion utilizing melodic dissonance.  If Ben Harper, a lo-fi Joni Mitchell & Hüsker Dü had genetically engineered children, they would have the sound of Vanessa Boyd & the Yes Men.

Track Name: Hunger to Be Fed
Lyrics:
hunger to be fed
I sing my song for money, I sing my song for bread
I go to bed each night with one running through my head
I wake up each morning with a hunger to be fed

it’s a strange thing to want to play in clubs and bars when you’ve been over drinking from the bottle for some time now : chorus : a strange thing to wanna be on the road when you’re over taking invitations from the strangers that you meet on the way : chorus : I don’t know which is more important, writing songs or singing them : I need me some more of them days that slide on by
yeah I need me some more of them days that just slide on by
Track Name: Move Ahead
move ahead
all of my love for you, though I gave all I could, all of my love for you, just made me blue : all of my love for you, though it was true through and through, all of my love for you, just made me blue : all my love for you, couldn’t make you see the way I do, all my love for you, just made me blue :: it’s time to move ahead, past the guilt that I’ve been fed, time to paint in red : it’s time to move ahead, past the fear in my step, time to paint in red, time to move ahead : it’s time to move ahead, past the walls we’ve erected
Track Name: Train
Lyrics:
train
sitting on the front porch, cross the valley the train’s going by : you can hear it in the morning, hear it on into the night : lying in the cool bed, the train’s crying into the wind, lying in the cool, cool bed, the train’s crying into the wind : you can hear it in the morning, hear it on into the night :: working in the tobacco fields, cross the valley the train’s going by : sitting in the cool shade, the train’s crying into the wind, sitting in the cool, cool shade, the train’s crying into the wind :: playing in the fallow field, cross the valley the train’s going by : running through the cool weeds, the train’s crying into the wind, running through the cool, cool weeds, the train’s crying into the wind : you can hear it in the morning, hear it on into the night
Track Name: Non-Existing Girlfriend
non-existing girlfriend
I am the non-existing girlfriend, and I am loving you with my non-existing heart : and I am touching you with my non-existing hands, I thought it was a healing touch, a warmth you could feel, but all along, they were non-existing hands : and I am talking with my non-existing mouth, I thought that you would care, that you wanted me to share, but all along, they were non-existing words : I am the non-existing girlfriend, and I am loving you with my non-existing heart
Track Name: What Happened
what happened
what happened to the sixties, what happened to the hippies, what happened to the acid generation, what happened to the revolution : what happened to your dead, what happened to your head :: what happened to the eighties, what happened to the punk scene, what happened to the methamphetamine, what happened to the anarchy :: what happened to the millennium kids, what happened, they got nothing to believe in, what happened to the ecstasy, what happened to technology
