School Boy Humor
It's one thing to dream, and entirely another to make that dream reality: If you're not willing to lay it all on the line, all the talent in the world still won't bring you any closer to your goal. Despite their youth, this is something that SCHOOL BOY HUMOR knows all too well.
Built upon the foundation of twin brothers Phil and Anthony Evans, SCHOOL BOY HUMOR will stop at nothing to make a heavy impact on the music world. From their not-so-distant days playing the clubs and basements of Little Rock, Arkansas all the way to your stereo, SBH have already traveled far and wide to get here, and their time has just begun. Running down the list of setbacks endured and sacrifices the band have made—everything from poverty to estranged parents to axed athletic careers—you have to wonder just what keeps the duet going. Then you hear the songs, and it all makes sense.
"It's rough not knowing when you're going to eat again, or having to beg the promoter to buy you a pizza," says vocalist, Phil Evans. "But I don't have to wake up in the morning for a 9-to-5 job, and stress out about homework, and all of the other things we left behind. I think every path you take until you become successful is going to be tough in its own right."
That spirit pervades the material the band recorded for its digital EP, Camera Shy But Still A Star, and their full-length debut on Vagrant (February 2009). Produced by the Geoff Rockwell (Forever The Sickest Kids, Sky Eats Airplane), the songs marry the band's love of giant hooks and frenetic riffs with Rockwell's flair for atypical rhythms and pulsing electronica, making for a sound that's contemporary but also driving and eclectic. And lyrically, although relationships are a core topic as in most pop music, with powerful compositions like "This Is Your Life," and "Don't Look Back," the band have also focused on something else they know all too well: what it means to be young kids chasing a dream.
"'Don't Look Back' was written to be pretty self-explanatory; the lyrics are about as literal as they can be," says guitarist/vocalist Anthony Evans. "[Vocalist/guitarist] Phil had to sell his car and is currently living on our drummer's floor. We've been broken down for weeks in New York, been in 110-degree weather with no air conditioning, and have loved every minute of it!"
"When you're in a band, people tell you you're not going to do anything with it, and to stop wasting your time. It's kind of discouraging, but at the same time, we've gone through so much, and I've given up so much, there's no quitting for me now," Phil says. "I want to have a platinum-selling record, and that's the honest truth…. I want to reach a million people, and we won't stop until we do."
The band has recently released a NEW song, entitled, "7 Minutes in Heaven". The brothers feel that this song is the "new direction" for the band, as it still "keeps their pop-punk roots, while incorporating Top 40 elements", says Anthony. Be on the look out for these boys next year!
Voted Most Random
At some point someone is going to tell you that you need to be realistic. Someone is going to tell you to put on a suit and tie, or a company uniform, and go to a job you may not like all that much, but pays enough to cover your bills. We guess you can say we never grew up because we refuse to listen to all the voices that tell us what we can and cannot do. We just want to chase our dreams because too many people in this world refuse to. So here we are, trying to tell a story the best way we know how...through music.
With her signature red Mohawk, vintage shop style and school-girl voice, early 20's, singer Eryn Woods is ready to dominate the world with her eclectic brand of POP-PUNK. Her music has already been featured on Vh1 and MTV and she works closely with many big designers, ex. Betsey Johnson, JoyRich, Kill City and many more. As the queen of the “Kupcake” brigade, a term she coined to define her “sweet, fun and diverse” fan base, Woods musical and fashion influence on young Kupcakes is spreading around the globe.
Two Weeks Time
Two Weeks Time Is a high energy Rock/Pop influenced band based in St. Petersburg, FL. Two Weeks Time was originally formed by Tyler Freeman and Logan Webb. After searching for a bass player and drummer Logan and Tyler found new members. Brenden Schlesinger on bass and Matthew Coombs on drums. The band was complete and had found new focus and direction.
With this new energy and direction now instilled in the band it was time to show the world what Two Weeks Time is all about. The first live show for the band was at Gasoline Alley in Largo, FL. The band and all parties involved were amazed at the turn out! Since then the band has continued to book, including playing at The State Theatre. Two Weeks Time Is currently booking shows and preparing to go in to the studio in late 2012.
So Keep a Look out for Two Weeks Time and make it out to one of the bands live performances!
