Melissa Marvelous feats of songwriting that manage to balance beautifully on the thin-thin line between heart-felt and hokey: break out the marshmallows. Favorite track: In The Shadows.

Devin Howell Nate has a very honest sound, that's at once uplifting and catchy with, at times, very adventurous song writing that tantalises the yearning for originality.

Enzo Paolo Baranelli I'm following Nate from Music Raiser when he started his project (and I fund it as other 80 people did): so, believe me, there is good music for you here.

Keep on brother it’s all I can say You know the way You know the way Wait up brother wait for us I will walk beside you With our sister it’s enough Oh brother brother look and see So many similarities Oh brother brother you and me We keep it simple Little Brother Shine on brother where you are Kow that you still light me up Even when you shine from far I hug each sunrise cos I know You made it warm for me A little while ago Oh brother, brother, look and see So many similarities Oh brother, brother, you and me We keep it simple Little Brother And you know I’m always there Cos I ain’t goin’ anywhere You and I are not afraid We keep it simple Keep it simple Little Brother

We’re full of fascination For material medication Should we blame our education For this fucked up situation Fucked up situation What is it that we fear Come close but not too near Let’s smile and shed a tear For the songs we love to hear Songs we love to hear All I need’s a patch of sunlight From where to watch the world run by You tell me life’s a rat-race I’m no rat I’ve got time This cat’s got time This cat’s got time This cat’s got time This cat’s got time What brought us to this place What is it that we chase Our future has a face Full of wonder and grace Full of wonder and grace All I need’s a patch of sunlight From where to watch the world run by You tell me life’s a rat-race I’m no rat , I’ve got time This cat’s got time This cat’s got time This cat’s got time This cat’s got time

Slow It Down 04:01
I know this to be true That the world Spins too fast Leaves some folk behind On this ship Without a mast Oh no no no Somebody please Slow it down Slow it down Slow it down I see you beside the road With your life Packed in a case I try to understand But then you’re gone Without a trace Oh no no no Somebody please Slow it down Slow it down Slow it down Somebody please Slow it down For a while Slow it down Words become a blur And are lost Misunderstood But I’ll stand here on the edge Try to catch All I should Oh no no no Somebody please Slow it down Slow it down Slow it down Somebody please Slow it down For a while Slow it down Slow it down

It's hard to open up my eyes When I feel like I've been blind All of my days, now I'm Wandering through the haze And the world is looks so crazy Maybe that's just me Maybe it's just me We all find our secrets Patient in the shadows Right there where we left them waiting No matter how far we run They run right beside us Our demons know our names Better than anyone See me trapped within this construct Beating at the locked up door and Gripped tight deep within my fist Is the key to all I've missed That the pain is just the teacher And the cage is just a myth We all find our secrets Patient in the shadows Right there where we left them waiting No matter how far we run They run right beside us Our demons know our names Better than anyone I spend oh so many hours Building up and giving power To the worst I can imagine lives in me And now oh to my surprise When the ghost as me disguised Is the best at breaking everything Everything, everything I dream. You who presume you can stay dry by Dodging all the raindrops falling Thick, try lifting up your tongue To the rain not just the sun Nothing quite so simple Was ever so much fun We all find our secrets Patient in the shadows Right there where we left them waiting No matter how far we run They run right beside us Our demons know our names Better than anyone
