about

DAVID BOYLES
8 STRING DEMOS
Featuring Sheven Morris on Drums

David Boyles offers up his own sonic footprint on the 8 String guitar, a guitar/bass hybrid design pioneered by Charlie Hunter in the 1990's.

The concept was simple - capture songs as they would be experienced live, in which Boyles features drummer Sheven Morris in a weekly intimate duo setting Wednesdays at Melody Bar and Grill in Los Angeles. "This record is a direct result of our residency," Boyles says.

"There is a looseness that we bring to our live approach which enables us to improvise in a structured context." Boyles also adds, "The instrument is simply a means to serve the song, inspired by the love I have for both bass and guitar - not an end to personal gratification."

David Boyles can be heard in and around the Los Angeles area - available for private events upon request, Boyles musical style and taste always complements an atmosphere with casual elegance and grace.

Boyles signature style of Alternative R&B is as accessible as it is refreshing.

Track Name: Crazy Love
She give me breakfast in the morning
Sex in the evening
And love in the afternoon

She give me everything I wanna
Grab it like she gonna
Make you think about a honeymoon

I really love to teach you
When I'm down beneath you
I quiver as you call my name

From the left, right, back, to the front
Makes no difference
Its all the same

She give me love
Crazy love
She give me love, love
Crazy love

If I could count all the ways
You add to my days
I'd run out of numbers and words left to say
It's within my reach
In all that you teach
Just by being who you are

I wanna drink with you in Rio
Dance with you in Rome
Gotta make this world together
Everywhere our home
Everything we see
Everything we do
People like the way you do
What you do
When you do with me

You give me love
Crazy Love
She give me love, love
Crazy love

But you don't know what you do to me
Baby it's hard to keep my cool
You know we gotta keep on trying
And keep on trying to get there
Get there
Track Name: Memory
I got it covered on your cloudy day
See I'm that lover, shades of grey
I'll be your verb when action goes away
Everyday seems like eternity
Tonight I'm grabbing the first girl I see
And damn right she's coming home with me

Tonight I don't wanna be alone
So lets make a memory to take home
Cause tonight I don't wanna be alone
Oh no

We picked a perfect night to see it through
Ain't no one dancing here but me and you
And we both know this time is overdue
And I know you feel it too
Cause I can tell it when I look at you
See this one night can make it right
It's gonna be the one to change our lives

Tonight I don't wanna be alone
So lets make a memory to take home
Cause tonight I don't wanna be alone
Oh no
Track Name: All In
Another day of life on the go
Too late for me to take it slow
Another night, another regret
Lost behind a cigarette
You say I need to slow down
While you're out running around
You can't have it both ways
No you can't have it both ways

I'm all in if you're all in

The more we let time roll by
emotions intensify
You and I feel the same way
Why let our pride get in the way
This burden we need to lay down
Build our love on solid ground
Our foundation's crumbling
Our foundation is crumbling

I'm all in if you're all in
Track Name: Get it Right
I've never been big on conversation
Cause baby, actions speak louder than words
And through you I've found my motivation
I wanna show you a world away from the herd

Cause now I found someone
That I can build a dream with
A chance to be the one
That she gets to believe in
Cause now I found someone
That I can build a dream with
Cause now I know how
To get it right

I wanna take you on a trip to the top of the world
Wanna shout it from the hills you're my favorite girl
Wanna cook you breakfast and clean your plate
Run your bathwater, scrub you down and kiss your face
Live like tomorrow may never come
Do it like it can't ever be undone
And say a prayer for the planet that we make it through today
Can't let the fear get in the way
Yeah it's that easy to see it clearly
No time to rewind lets fast forward through time
Together we can presently live in the devine
You're so sexy baby, so sexy lady, my baby

Cause now I found someone
That I can build a dream with
A chance to be the one
That she gets to believe in
Cause now I found someone
That I can build a dream with
Cause now I know how
To get it right

So many days I tried to convince myself it wasn't true
Until I met you
Darkness consumed my mind
One day I saw the light
I got it right
Track Name: People Lead
They say that we're a dying breed
In the name of greed we wallow
Take a picture of the past
In development of tomorrow
They say that if the people lead then the leaders will follow
But tell me how
How can the people lead
When the leaders all follow greed

And now in the new millennium
The continuum awakens
Higher vibrations emanate
To reinstate the dream of a nation
They say we're moving way too fast for us to last
God save our souls
But who in the world are they to say
What we portray
We gotta break the mold

Tell me how
How can the people lead when the leaders all follow greed
Tell me how
How can the people lead when the leaders all follow greed

As we approach the final days
We must lift the haze and discover
The systems been so wrong so long
Thats why I wrote this song for my brothers
Now is the time time to live in love and rise above
All those who hate
And to the ones who choose to hate
It's not too late to save your soul
Track Name: Affection
Nothing like the feel of something new
Like the feeling that I feel when I'm with you
Let me tell you now
I got that something
Something that just can't be compromised

All I want is everything
Everything is what you bring
I got to lay it on the line
Cause everybody knows you got that something
Something that just can't be compromised

All I want is your affection
Baby give me some attention
I just wanna have something to talk about when I get back home
All I want is your affection
Baby give me some attention
I just wanna get a little something
Something to remind me of you

You're out there in your fancy car
All up and down the boulevard
You're looking like a movie star
And everybody knows you
But I don't even know your name
Cause all of ya'll all look the same
It's all just how I play the game

All I want is your affection
Baby give me some attention
I just wanna have something to talk about when I get back home
All I want is your affection
Baby give me some attention
I just wanna get a little something
Something to remind me of you
Track Name: Want U Now
I can't stop it
And you can't cop it
But I just want you now
You got that something
My heartbeats jumping
I just want you now

I want you now
I want you now
Let me show you how
I want you now
I want you

It's in the things we do
In the words we say
Each and every way
You brighten up my day
Looking down on you
Looking back at me
Ooh
You got me singing
Ooh girl, ooh girl
Let me be the one to hold you
Ooh girl, ooh girl
Let me be the one to scold you

I want you now
I want you now
Let me show you how
I want you now
I want you
And our time together baby
Track Name: Sunshine in the Rain
We can't keep on running away
Our love is here to stay baby
We can't keep on running away from love

Hey lady
I know sometimes it's hard
And lately it feels
Like the devil played your card
But there's magic when
You walk in the place
Leaving everyone in here
Standing in a state of grace

Its clear we gotta let love
Lead the way

Don't burn out till it's over
Try to reignite the flame
You've always burned a little brighter
Like sunshine in the rain

Summer days go by
Without a second glance
And aren't you so glad you
Were willing to take the chance on us baby
You're so good to me
I wanna make it so good for you
Got you thinking about all the things
That you never thought you'd do

Its clear we gotta let love
Lead the way

Don't burn out till it's over
Try to reignite the flame
You've always burned a little brighter
Like sunshine in the rain

Only you can make me feel this way
Only you
