about

Great Waves officially began in an old portable converted classroom at Pine Lake Middle School. Paul told his desk-mate Will that he could "play bass and sing real good... Chris Cornell style." Although Paul never quite backed up his claim, the two became friends and over the years played in several bands together. After adding Ashley on lead vocals and later Ryan on drums, they found collaborators that pushed the band to become greater than the sum of its parts. With a little help from friend David Bahr and lead by Ashley’s dreamy vocals, Great Waves plays a unique blend of alternative rock and folk, that has been likened to everything from Allison Krauss to Radiohead.

Track Name: Konza Plains
Lone shadow cast
In burning sun
Made you big enough to run

Your father cried
What a tragic shape
You cut across the plains

And your mama replied
In your defense
Least we can read her

Eyes have swollen
From each passing year
And all our long winters
Have fallen upon deaf ears

Your mottos lie
Somewhere in between
Your wild fits and fiends

Clothes stick to skin
Offers no relief
From fevered dreams

And eyes have swollen
From each passing year
And all our long winters
Have fallen upon deaf ears

On deaf ears

And when you come around
Streets clear

Cause no one can mirror
The way you hold up
To face

All your battles were won
On those days

My my my one
Track Name: Blue Blood
I sing to you cause you don't know what happened
I sing of you cause you are all that matters
And when the dirt has cleared it's all combated

My baby don't you stay away too long
Cause I can hear you calling
From here on

Can keep from you my skeletons and habits
It’s lonely where you’re from and where your head is
The filth has filled the room
We’re all so gone

My baby don’t you stay away too long
Cause I can hear you calling
From here on
Track Name: The Moon and The Gutter
I am not a man of grace
With only hands to scrape
They never look my way
For I am what they're ashamed

Of me they say
Of me they blame

Two feet to the road
Their dreams at me they throw
But I am not a sinking stone
On through days I will go

Of me they say
Of me they blame

Oh Oh

I am not a man who prays
With all answers straight
They never look my way
For I am what they're ashamed

Of me they say
Of me they blame

Oh Oh
Track Name: Sea Legs
How can it be
Pinned to your knee
I'm gone to state line
On what road we used to wind

I lie awake
Dusk cannot break me
And mine

Sea legs and tales
How can it fail me
My friend
Oh my friend
You'll see
We'll reach our end

My gray lace
Sitting covered erased
My lines that I had traced
To nowhere but here

I lie awake
Dusk cannot break me
And mine

Sea legs and tales
How can it fail me
My friend
Oh my friend
You'll see
We'll reach our end

Oh my friends
We'll reach our end
Track Name: Untitled
Bathed in light
And morning glory
You stand beside the worn out bedpost of my home

It’s cold outside
But still early
You take me hand and then you say you’ve got to go

I can’t remember the time of year
Or when we first spoke like Baudelaire
And all I said was get some rest
My friend
Oh friend

Bathed in light
And morning glory
You stand beside the worn out bedpost of my home
