SEEKINGVocalist, Lead Guitar.
If you're a rock bassist and if you like and can play to Drive Away - hit me up on gee male. Hailing from (I've always wanted to hail from somewhere) Montreal, Canada, I've been living in Suwanee, GA. for 6 years.
I used to be in a recording, touring band. I'm 49 and now that I've had a couple kids I think I'm ready to get back into it. Looking for really good players, and really good human beings. Check out some of my songs below - if you like let me know. (just search JCNicholls)
I would like to jam originals (with maybe a few covers) once every week or two. And play gigs if we get good enough.

Forever SummertimeForever summertime Wouldn’t it be great if I could hibernate And wake up in the springtime when flowers were in bloom ‘Cause my name it is a mumble someone uttered years ago And if you were to leave right now I’d meet you at the show But I don’t know if I can take it anymore I’m alright in my mind Forever summertime As long as you know how to smile the game and play the game And don’t forget you can’t go back the same way that you came When the sun, it shines upon you and your world is brightly lit Don’t forget the shadows are all because of it But I don’t care if it’s the morning anymore The stars that shine are in my mind Forever summertime Forever in my mind I could meet you if you want me I could be there half-past nine But I’m alright in my mind And this wave’s alright

Bring on the Morningstar
Bring on the MorningstarSunrise, it's 8:03 Beautiful blows a kiss at me Where did all the feeling go? Somehow I don't think that I'll ever know Life is everyday What you do, not what you say But there's something about the way You turn me on Have you been let down too? Does someone own a little part of you? I'm the nurse and I'm the clown Bet you thought I'd always be around Are you waiting for a sign? Stop searching when you find The mountain doesn't care if you climb The ship was tossed, the crew was lost There's nothing left to save you Let me be the light to guide you to the safer waters I could've been the one to show you how To see some brand new colors But you turned away, the world went gray And we're both here in the darkness (until) Sunrise, it's 8:04 I don't wave good morning anymore Too close to ever feel apart This machine doesn't have a heart But I will have my day I know now who you are Is what you want so far? Bring on the morningstar
Not The Fish
Not The FishThere comes a time When you make up your own mind But you don't care for the thought of it Here I am Waiting for the band You would never understand But you won't have far to go No, you don't have far to go There'll come a time Reflection's hard to find Mirror knows what's on your mind 'Cause it's not the fish But the fishing that you'll miss Let's get it out and over with And we'll sip our lemonade Never cared much for the shade Of a Sun that made me slave But you won't have far to go No, you don't have far to go
Hit the Road - (Maine Cottage Demo Session)
Hit the Road - (Maine Cottage Demo Session)Up and down you spin me like a planet Round and round we go again roulette If you think I know where we are going Baby, take a chance and place a bet ‘Cause I won’t - and I don’t Ever want, to look back again... Mary can you wait for me I’m on the phone It’s raining in the south, but freezing back at home There a time and a place where we all must run a race And if the end is the start, we all must play a part Unless the sign says to hit the road Up and down you spin me like a planet We’ve fallen so far behind on the rent Time to take back all the things we’ve given Time to get back all the time we spent ‘Cause I won’t - and I don’t Ever want, to look back again... Mary can you pray for me, I’m all alone Your eyes are what I dream of when I’m far from home There’s a time and a place for the earth and outer space For the stars in the sky are not ours to wonder why But there a light.. That shines above, filled with love and when push will come to shove Hanging on to a dream, knowing when it’s time to leave And there’s a time To hit the road
Just MaybeI always watch you gather up your little stones Like I don’t know what you’ll do Now I wonder what the hell was I thinking What did I ever see in you I’m afraid that I have waited all my life I will not wait for you ‘cause you sure don’t wait for me That’s okay It’s time I take the next big step I know that there is nothing left I’m letting go of holding on I don’t know how to show I’m gone It used to matter when I walked into the room It used to matter if I died I’m in the films and magazines I’m up and down and in-between I’m everywhere that I don’t want to be I’m afraid that I have wasted all my life I will not wait for you ‘cause you sure don’t wait for me That’s okay Just maybe
Everything's WrongShadows come and stay the night Darkness feeds upon the light Everything is left undone Thought the best was yet to come I don't think about yesterday Or the words I wouldn't say You can't make the one you want feel the same Everything's wrong Everything's wrong Don't tell me to be strong When everything's wrong... I will be what I was once again All things come to an end But I dream of saltwater air And the waves in her hair And we dance into our graves With the souls that no one saves What am I supposed to learn from the loss Everything's wrong Everything's wrong Don't tell me to be strong When everything's wrong
ChangeDo you feel the light slip away Or does it just turn to black? Are you a river that's flowing down And you know you're never coming back? The things we give up along the way The road you choose and the price you pay What is it that you think you have That they can't just take away? To dream... To drown... Sink in... And wonder... Last thought... Last breath... Arm... Fist... Then under... Never to return all that you borrowed Oh, to trade away all your tomorrows Now everyone's gone to bed Midnight radio by your head I wish it wasn't just as it seems Haunt me tonight in my dreams Change
Low Grade Man
Low Grade ManHere, by me, you'll see what you want to see I've got nowhere to go And I've got no place I have to be Take to the road and live before you're old Count the different ways Scenery can fill the empty days But I'm not the only one, I can't be the only one I won't be the only one, the only lonely one Low grade man You know where I go to find things beautiful? I trip inside instead The colours are much brighter in my head Shotgun the hero, rehab the zero Supply my demand, help me to understand Low grade man I can always dream right out of here To that the out of focus kissing closeness, dear And you wonder why we don't go anywhere
OrganaAnd I razor blade the morning Fish baby warning hook mobiles At a million miles an hour Energy is power down the drain Oh, remember You're dying every day Oh, I'm just trying to believe in what I say It's a small step for man, a giant leap for me Now flowers are growing On what were fields of war And dead soldiers wonder What I would fight for (they say) Oh, remember You're dying every day Oh, I'm just trying to believe in what I say It's a small step for man, a giant leap for me Abandon all hope ye who enters here
Counting WavesPony tails and fingernails Pretty girls set your sails There comes a time in your life You must decide which road to ride And which one to leave behind Letting go, all you know Be the high to my low See the light burning bright What you will and what you might Do you run or do you fight Don't waste your time counting waves They all crash and die on the shore For every single love that's ever lost I hope that there's one stronger than before But I'm not sure Spinning wheel, doesn't feel To dream a dream and to make it real There comes a time in your life You must decide which wrong to right These things you lost, you will find Raise your heads broken men Remember when we ran For the race and not the prize Don't believe the lies I could've sworn our garden grew And sunny skies were blue It's hard to admit But it's true I was wrong About you
I Am Fire - basement demo
I Am Fire - basement demoForty days and forty nights They argued over battle lines But you and I, we have a pact Keep your mouth shut, don’t over-react And hold on to what you could have been And hang on to what you should have been You should have been here with me for the final hour But you crossed the wire Uncertain of incertainty This mission calls for scenery The rocket rocked into the crowd One is gone, and the other proud But hold to what you could have been Hang on to what you should have been You should have been at home In your mother’s arms Not a gun for hire. I am fire.
Where Summer Goes
Where Summer GoesLooking forward to the autumn Of the life to come Ghosts of long-lost cats are laying in the sun Forever young I'm looking for something You're looking for something, too Well, maybe that something Is right in front of you What is it that you think you're living for? What's left to learn before you burn? Everybody has a mountain to climb Maybe I'm yours and you're mine Is there any answer To what no one knows? Well, don't tell me when or how But why a flower grows I think I found a picture Of you and I that shows Not how or even why But where summer goes
Last WishI can't believe I wasted my first two wishes on that She took off with the cash and ain’t coming back I swear that with the last one it can happen everyday So think before you wish or you might dream it all away Break the T.V. spell “You know, you boys should be outside” It's the story of my life When you seek is when I'll hide Buzzing lawns and summer songs, get that man a drink Leave behind the piece of mind that always makes you think So spend a life, build a ship, and try to make it go The wind might take forever, sailor Don't just sit there - blow Many things to do Before they put me in the ground So wish for something simple And you won’t be let down Green, green grass …and sunshine
ReveilleEverybody everywhere Wipe your sleepy eyes Come on out from where you hide And wake up what's inside Sun climbs over mountain range Ocean waves and outer space Across the land and through the dark To kiss you on the face Don't you ever turn away from What brings out the child Count on me to turn you on I'll count on you to smile You can take back everything Anything but time So everybody everywhere Come on rise and shine They will tell you what to be Pretend to listen carefully They built a fire and it keeps them warm Be the light and build your own Look right through your own disguise Mirror knows what the man denies To know love and to win the prize Is to be the light in someone's eyes Why all this looking up? The stars wish upon us No matter who you are Or what life you create Just know that in the end The worms won't mind the wait
Drive AwayWhen you're in your room And when something's gotta happen soon I don't care where we go Just get behind the wheel, I'll let you know But I see it in my mind And I see it in the photographs of you But I don't care 'Cause I'm not there When you go - just drive away... Counting the phone rings Thinking about the things you've left behind Kiss it all away You're cashing in all of your rainy days But tell yourself you're fine Just close your eyes and dream of warm sunshine 'Cause before long, summer's gone When you go - just drive away... I... am a highway... under the stars Somewhere between... Venus and Mars Too many people... and too many cars... When you go - just drive away...
