about

Somewhere is an exploration of space and place and home.

This project was conceived of and written while driving around the country -- a rite of passage, a sort of quest, that led us from mountain tops to coastlines and everywhere in between.

It was our reconnaissance mission, our walkabout, our journey out of Seattle and into the larger world to see what we could find, what called us, what we might discover in ourselves outside of the comfort and safety of home.

Along the way we saw many places and faces in the mazes, but it was the transformation of our inner spaces that sticks.

"...if you got what we got you're always at home"

This project, as written about by Joseph Campbell in his work on The Hero's Journey, is an attempt to bring the hard won elixir from our quest, and give it away to those back at home.

We heard the call, crossed the threshold, fought our battles, seized the sword, discovered the treasure, and somehow made it back home. But our hearts are still out there... Somewhere.

"Somewhere baby a part of me, apart from me" - Bon Iver
"Somewhere over the rainbow" - Oz
"Somewhere only we know" - Keane

Maybe it's all the same place, and maybe some part of us is there all the time.

We'll see you there...

Track Name: Stay Movin'
in motion
in tune with my emotions
just drove from ocean to ocean
from Pacific to Atlantic to Pacific
tryna catch the commotion
and ride it on into the lights
we been whirling like merlin
painting murals and staying with girls
seeing the sights of the world
aspire to heights
inspired by life
and on fire to acquire what i desire
that’s a beautiful life
filled with unusual sights
dancing with the dark on these musical nights
i work hard…
i searched wide and far
we dipped out of the city to sit under the stars, ya
spin to get dizzy, climb trees like tarzan
one day we found a way outside the bars man
jail was on fire
the bail was too high
the wait was too long
so i made this new song like
da, da, da-da-da, da
but i’ve been practical too
you’ll probably see it over time
the kids a little different
but the vision still shine like a…
shhhh, it’s like a secret you’ve been waiting to hear
it’s like the day you learned to play a joke on your fears

and we stay
on the move
stay on the move
everybody gotta
stay
on the move
& vibe out ride to the groove
one time

in motion
cuz the moves don’t stop
skebop, d’wop baby
the groove is on top of the globe
keep it cooking like the top of the stove
lookin out the window see what’s off’a the road
chose my own story
not the popular goals
like money and clothes
but don’t forget to operate in both worlds
without some money it’s a complicated route
and you got to dress it up sometimes to get the message out
so hear, hear, listen up right now
i got so many stories
only one damn mouth
shouting to the void or
vibing out with the crowds
said if you’re with it
put your hands to the clouds
to the right, to the left
everybody recognize we blessed (oh yes)
to the right, to the left
now cmon just release that stress
don’t for get that we

stay
on the move
ya we stay
on the move
everybody now we stay
on the move
and vibe out ride to the groove one time
Track Name: Used CDs (Across The Land)
Verse 1 (brodie)
I been across the land
We Crossed our fingers
Bought a van and booked it
Left behind the West we knew
Took off and started lookin
It was beauty-full of life
You know the road is often crooked, but
Day after day we drove for miles and
Kept it cookin’
Though Mountain passes, valleys of green
Sun burning down our backs
Cornfields and rolling hills
Border crossing, roadkill
We swam in beautiful rivers and lakes
Saw lizards and snakes
& Shed our own skin too
Freed from invisible weights
That held us back
Gave thanks through the difficult days
Cityscapes to woods
God, this lands a mystical place
And I just pray we keep it safe for our kids to be raised
With beauty in tact and food to be dished on their plates

We can’t wait
Tap into this love so strong
They can't hate
The world stay changing
But trust that we can take it
Hungry and we're naked but
Together we can make it

Everybody’s got a Road
And where it’s leading we don’t know until we go
Oh it’s not easy to believe in something, no
But what’s a dream that you don’t ever follow home?

Verse 2 (Luc)
Been across the land
Two dudes and a van
Me and Bro, that's my righthand man
Won't stop til we camped in the sand
Beans in a pot, hot dogs in a pan
Find shade from an unknown tree
Sunrise over foreign seas
Standing up on the back of a Cadillac
Til the day I die won't forget that
Tame - fill up my brain let it better me
A sweet melody, a memory
Tail lights shine, only thing ahead of me
Say you can't come home if you never leave
If it ain't good now, it'll never be
If it ain't your style just let it be
If it all falls down just set it free
Cuz it all falls down Eventually
Gotta put in work
Gotta fill them holes
Gotta pave that road
When the piper comes for his cash
That man's gonna laugh if you hold up gold
You get your time on this earth so you can plant seeds
So you can feed soul
Got the windows down and the system up
Throwing seeds everywhere we go

We can’t wait
Tap into this love so strong
They can't hate
The world stay changing
But trust that we can take it
Hungry and we're naked but
Together we can make it

Everybody’s got a Road
And where it’s leading we don’t know until we go
Oh it’s not easy to believe in something, no
But what’s a dream that you don’t ever follow home?
And time's it's gon' be tough
And test your limits and your light an all your luck
But look inside and you will find that there's enough
If you don't try you'll never know
If you could fly home
Fly home

Damn, where we gonna stay tonight?
Yo, I don't know lets just follow the light
Alright, follow the light til it burns out.. Oh shoot
Yo, look, that's the turn now!
We'll be staying where we're sposed to be
Everything that I need it's close to me
And if we run out, we can hit the grocery
Just drive til we find us some ocean breeze
Like please!
Searching for mountains and trees
To balance this urban disease
To put in perspective the things I perceive
To prove that I'll bleed for things I believe
And squeeze
All that we can from this trip
The juice of our travels
Pressed to our lips
Let's go, let's go
Jump on the ship
No time to think about what you will miss
Now slip
Into the ways of the road
No matter the distance
Wherever you go
If you got we got
You're always at home
If you got what we got you're always at home
So go, follow the road of your life
If you got a vision or think that you might
Think no more
Go get it tonight
Ya, we need you shining your light

So don't wait
Tap into this love so strong they can't hate
The world stay changing
But trust that you can take it
Hungry and you're naked
But together we can make it

Everybody’s got a Road
And where it’s leading we don’t know until we go
Oh it’s not easy to believe in something, no
But what’s a dream that you don’t ever follow home?
And time's it's gon' be tough
And test your limits and your light an all your luck
But look inside and you will find that there's enough
If you don't try you'll never know
If you could fly home
Fly home
Track Name: Dandelion Dreams Ft. Era
ERA
Seems like I still miss you
I still ride the waves
Scent of smog and acid rain
I still write on page
Feel like a song used to sing in Manila
Sister running all in the yard with your nelas on
Hope to find a way home
Find a way to light souls
Let my lola live on
Through the songs I write down
Feel her light
It shine down
Try to live it out everyday now
Gettin’ rid of doubt everyday now
Try to find the love in every way I
Choose to live it out without the hate now
Got that from my mother who hold stars up on her back
Singing songs of freedom, hope that I would sing it back
Bloom where you planted son
Fight where you standing up
Son you a star
Let your light warm the planet now

We all need
Dandelion dreams,
Dandelion dreams
To keep us floating when it seems
Like there’s no hope of finding peace
-Inside you
Dandelion dreams,
Dandelion dreams
To keep us floating when it seems
Like there’s no hope of finding peace
-Inside you

Home’s where the heart is
I find home on the page as an artist
Feel rage, pain, love, joy
Only getting started
Thoughts like weeds
Tryna cultivate a garden

Home’s where the heart is
I find home on the shore of an island
I find home in the trees and the mountains
I find home with the change in the harvest

If home’s where the heart is,
I find home on the stage as an artist

I find home on the page through the silence
I find home through the pain and the heartache

If home’s where the heart is,
I Find home in the park

Home in the dark

Find home in the sunshine

Home with the art

Ya, home is wherever we are


THE BRODCAST
Reflections in mirrors
We all infected by years
of media messaging
Meaningless fears-
False beauty fed to our eyes, shed tears
Television tell us how to live
Tell us how to look how to act
What to buy
Where’s the eye contact?
Rain in the morning but the sun came out
Outta time, outta mind, outta money
What do we do when the bees don’t fly?
Outta honey
I’m a true blue man with some rhymes in my hand
And when I met ‘em said
Ride with the band and the lights get low
Catch a vibe if we can
I’ma write these flows in my phone go home
Stay low laying poems on a microphone
You can feel it when your mind goes slow
through a cyclone spinning
Eyes closed singing, are we
Are we ever gonna find that peace?
(Find that peace?)
I’d give it to you if I got it in me
(Got it in me)
Just trust you’ll be winning
If you gotta dope vision
& your grind don’t slide
(don’t slide)
Gotta show the world what’s behind those eyes
(behind those eyes)

We all need
Dandelion dreams,
Dandelion dreams
To keep us floating when it seems
Like there’s no hope of finding peace
-Inside you
Dandelion dreams,
Dandelion dreams
To keep us floating when it seems
Like there’s no hope of finding peace
-Inside you
Track Name: Guts
It’s gonna take guts
To keep spilling your guts
Keep telling your story
Keep spreading your love
It’s gonna take guts
To live what you believe in
Scare away all your demons
And trust in what you’re feeling

Sometimes my gifts feel like a curse
And that’s the worst cuz
I love these bursts of inspiration
Take me deep
So from my birth
Until i sleep under this dirt
It’s only me
I’ll make this count
I’ll make it work
For what it’s worth came from the sea
SEATTLE
And times it’s tough up on the surface
When my purpose dodging me
I take a breath
Shine a light
To find the way
My mind is free
It’s time to live
It’s time go
It’s time we dream big
I wanna curse i wanna cry i wanna laugh i wanna scream kid

So give it all, give it all
It’s gonna take guts to keep living your call, ya
Just give it all, give it all
Leave it on the field, even when we fall down, ya
So give it all, give it all
See what’s really real
And leap over these walls, ya
Just give it all, give it all
You got to make what you can
While you here in this land of the lost

Many demons coming at me
Can't pass me, nope
I got this vivid sorta passionately
Massive hope
That we gon’ be alright, there's nothing that we cannot cope with
We broken up but still that spirit keeps my people joking
Laugh at the pain we transform it into powers
Look at life as many lessons, many falls and many flowers
Moments in reflection
On our issues how we misusing
Our gifts to gain some energy
Manipulation-jitsu
Felt this moment coming long ago
Bittersweet - we riding til we realize the only chance at victory's inside us
.Rewrite our history
Let's de-install the virus
Tune into the real ness
And learn to be with silence-
Grow
Aware of all these beautiful forces that keep on lifting me
Up
When it is down
I feel protection
I don't worry bout the news or the elections
Just lies and deception
I just trust in what is true
Look in your eyes when I'm addressing you

When I look in your eyes
I can see a sunset, I can see a sunrise
When I look in your eyes
I can see what’s true, that’s buried in you
When I look in your eyes
I can see the strength that’s burning inside you
When I look in your eyes
With a hint of surprise,
I start to recognize…

It’s gonna take guts
To keep spilling your guts
Keep telling your story
Keep spreading your love
It’s gonna take guts
To live what you believe in
Scare away all your demons
And trust in what you’re feeling

At times my curse feel like a gift
That I exist
Is such a chance
can't help it, hear the music, start to dance
So with my words i'll share my rants
About the whimsy & the wonders
Face down my shame
And feed it into my hunger
For life love and loss
Keep singing it for my mother
Recognize the truth that my every day's numbered
So it's time to live
It's time to go
It's time dream big
I wanna sing I wanna dance I wanna fly
I wanna scream kid

So give it all, give it all
It’s gonna take guts to keep living your call, ya
Just give it all, give it all
Leave it on the field, even when we fall down, ya
So give it all, give it all
See what’s really real
And leap over these walls, ya
Just give it all, give it all
You got to make what you can
While you here on this planet
Evolve
Track Name: Somewhere
Picture yourself on a road through the Rockies
The aspens turn yellow
The clouds look divine
Lines in the road mark the ways that you travel
Away from your home on a journey to find
Picture yourself on a path through the cosmos
Lie on your back see the starts look divine
Dust in your rear views and no one can hear you
Sing to the void just to see what you find

Find what’s inside you
Sometimes you need some space to see
The patterns and habits that limit your growth
On a planet
We’ve all got a wave to be on
Neon lights, like beyond life
Old wounds tryna heal right
No room for some fake friends
Focus on my real life
Ya
We travel the planet
In search of what holds it together
Like gravity magic and music,
Amusement and weather (whether)
Or not all these forces can really be measured
It matters not
We’re just ants on a patterned rock
Just a shot in the dark
But at least we’re together my friends
And in the end i guess i sing for all that we could be
(we could be)
So won’t you join me on this frequency
(frequency)
Vibrations
All we are is some hydration
Stars fell down from high places
Heart beats and my mind races
Like how blessed are we?
When every breath is freely inhaled?
I impale my fear on a spear made of experience
Remind myself to carry on the weight despite the weariness
Smile when things get serious
Hiking for miles, feeling delirious

Picture yourself on a road through the redwoods
With honey dew mountains and cantaloupe skies
Lines in the road mark the ways that you travel
Away from your home on a journey to find
A picture: yourself on a path through the cosmos
Lie on your back see the stars look divine
Dust in your rear views
And no one can hear you
Sing to the void just to see what you find


See what you find
I heard of a place
Somewhere not far away
I heard of a place
Somewhere that we can play
I heard of a place
Somewhere that we can be
I heard of a place
Somewhere that we can say

How blessed are we when every breath is freely inhaled?
Just impale your fear on a spear made of experience
Remind yourself to carry on the weight despite the weariness
Smile when things get serious
Hiking for miles
Feeling euphoria

This is the story of
Places we heard of or places we know
Places we come from, places we go
Places familiar, maybe the memories dim
But you’ve been there before
And we can go back
Just open the door
The garden is waiting for you to explore

…And there’s always more than we need
Abundance replaces the greed
Feeling the love replacing the hate
Notice the power that grows in the flowers
The way that the moments can fade into hours
If we only focus
The here and the now is unbroken
And all that there is is to open to it
Allow in some space to realize
All that you hope and you wish
Is to

Picture yourself on a road to the sunrise
The birds start their singing
The hills come alive
With music to guide you
Wherever you travel
Back to your home
If you only might try to
Picture your soul
On a path through the cosmos
Lie on your back see the stars look divine
Dust in your rearviews
And no one can hear you
Sing to the void
Just to see what you find
Track Name: Come Home
COME HOME

That was who I was
This is who I am now
We could write about like a penpal
Or maybe we should keep it on the low
Either way everyone’s gonna know

She said come home
She said come home
She said come home
She said come home

She said come home
I just wanna see ya
Maybe we can figure out
If anything is here
I like how you think
We could have an idea
I just wanna see you
But i know you love your freedom
Ya, baby i been on a road
Tryna figure out myself
Where i’m bouta go
Cuz we got this one life
And it’s feelin so short see
I don’t wanna miss
Any parts of the story

Where’d you go baby
Come home keep paving
Your road and mine keep changing
Can’t they grow the same way
Where’d you go baby
Come home keep paving
Your road and mine keep changing
Can’t they grow the same way

She said go home
I don’t wanna see ya
Why’d you even bother ever coming round here
I don’t get the way you think
Cuz we had an idea
I just want a reason why you made it disappear
Look baby I been on a road
Tryna figure out myself
Carrying this load
Tryna pack it up right
Get a hold on my role here
Hoping one day you understand
Maybe we could meet again somewhere

Where’d you go baby
Come home keep paving
Your road and mine keep changing
Can’t they grow the same way
Where’d you go baby
Come home keep paving
Your road and mine keep changing
Can’t they grow the same way

You can’t decide
What is yours and mine
You can’t decide
What is real this time
Track Name: Natives (The Elixir)
I been here forever bout as far as I know
Just like the stars in my soul
This for the ocean I wrote
Got that emotional pull
C'mon just hop on the boat
Somethin’ collide with your soul
I'm tryna widen the scope
If you can rock then let's roll
I got a pocket full
of pull it out and pass it around
I been in love with the Sound
Since we grew up in this town
At times I feel I could never leave it
But She told me boy look
If you can dream it
Then you'd better be it
And I pass it on
To you if you want it
You want it?
It might be rap
It might be beautiful sonnets
To you
it might be flowers
Might be musical vomit
But it's cool
I'm just spitting out my truth
If I'm honest

take a deep breath and dive into the sound
cmon gather around
as the sun goes down
when the light turns gold
and it’s all right with your soul
we’ll be by the by
just singing it’s oh oh oh k

So everyday i’m learning
Life is in the simplest pleasures
Start shifting my focus to the infinite treasures
In the moments and the measures of the music that we make together
Present to the pain, give it expression and it makes it better
So when I'm broke down and beat up
I probably hit the secret beach spot all alone and put my feet up
.Block out the stressing of this modern society
Listen to the waves brush the shore and sit quietly
See what comes up in my heart
Restore my energy to keep myself grounded in my
part of this song
sing with the sweet melody
that’s been playing all along
and showing me the way through my days
and we sung
