About "3 songs"
This band was formed thanks to a long standing friendship and genuine love of playing music. The 3 songs here are another step forward for us in an already positive and welcome part of our lives. We both agree that the ease of working together and playing out, coupled with the communicative nature in which songs are written makes this one of the best and most rewarding musical projects we have both ever been a part of. When we're writing songs, a person in the room might think we're fighting the entire time, but it's more of a positive argument (sometimes we yell) fueled by the passion we both feel musically in that moment (often we yell). We've both been in projects where you are playing parts or pieces that have been written by other people, and as much as you may love those parts and pieces, they're never your own. The one thing we know for certain with this project is that the music is a 100% collaborative effort. Nothing is written (with the exception of a riff sent back and forth every now and then) until the two of us get into the practice space. There is something very comfortable and rewarding about that. It's also therapeutic to be able to shout back and forth with your friend because you feel strongly about something, but know that when you're finished that day, you'll still go drink a few beers and hang out like nothing happened.

Musically, these songs are not trying to stay true to any specific genre, they're staying true to whatever we felt was good in the moment. With the first EP, we just wanted to be loud (we still want to be loud.), now we are toying with the dynamics we have with only two pieces, and we're looking to find different ways to expand in our own space. We already have a handful of new tracks besides these, and hope to share them at some point soon. Thanks for listening. -Gg/Sg

Track Name: Nashville
How you gonna deal with all the crossroads in your life?
Will you just blindly walk the line?
You can never change a man who has made his mind.
All you can do is step aside.

He came from Nashville with some energy inside.
The kind of vibe you can't deny.
He can walk into a room and make it live...like
you have never known

People
Come inside
Come on and get some life
People
Come alive
Come on and feel the vibe

He comes from Wales;
He's got some energy inside.
And he has seen the other side.
He can step onto a stage and do it right.
Like you have never known

Upon the last days that you ever known...
Upon the last days, they will have come and will have shown.
Track Name: Ruby Tennessee
Ruby Tennessee
You've earned one more year to experience all that you can
Here's to Hare of the Dog
Here's to your new friends made along the way
while you were hazy

Random Tennessee
No clue where you are
At the counter bar trying to catch a ride
Here's to luck of the draw
Here's to your new friends made along the way
While you were hazy

A person will decide at some point in the night
Whether or not to ride
And just to shake it up
Neither one would which way you should go

Devil got inside and took over your mind
He left you running blind
The next thing you will find is you don't know who you are
In a strange town, all the people you're around
Need you to figure it out
Who you gonna be when you don;t know who you are

In the morning when you wander through the streets alone
Every memory you can conjure, what does it matter now?
Track Name: Gene, Korea, 1951
One more day down...Korea.
You had your choice, you found your voice and let it go
You brushed away the time on your own
Cause it was yours to find
To find...

One more day down...Korea
You found your voice, you all had your choice and let it go
You brushed away the time on your own
Cause it was yours to find
When you let go, you said you'd take your time out on your own
Cause it was your to find
To find...
