looking for the band name

Towards the light

Hi, my name is Leonard Kouroufexis and I would like to share with you the story of how the band name LIGHTROAD came to be.

I was trying to think of something that would enclose the whole of life in a single word but thats a bit hard, so I thought, why not say it with one word and one phrase, and this is what I came up with:

“LIGHTROAD: The road towards the light and everything in between”

Which means exactly that: The journey of life with all the obstacles we encounter along the way and our efforts to overcome them.

From an artistic stance point we are mainly interested in artistic freedom and the essence of life which is to be well and to do good.

On our live appearances we perform our own original songs which are in the Rock-Pop genre but we also like to play a variety of carefully selected covers we came to love over the years.

Parts from 3 LIGHTROAD songs @ Downtown Live – 14 June 2017

» C’mon and take it away

» Its ok

» Moving up into the sun

Authentic music

Characterized as “true rockers”

LIGHTROAD is an authentic rock-pop band. Characterized as “true rockers”, the band is drawn into the unknown territories of artistic freedom of expression with a highly unconventional & anti-cliché presence

Song lyrics:

It comes and it goes away
It drives you crazy, then it makes you ok
This thing lives in my blood
It’s causing so much pain
This thing lives in my heart
It’s taking me away

It comes and it goes away
It holds you back, then it lets you play
This thing is like a trap
A trap you can’t escape
This thing is like a gun
It kills me every day

Falling down into the sun now
Going right into your true house
Falling down into your arms now
Going right into your true house

It comes and it goes away
It holds you back then, it lets you play
This thing lives in my blood
It’s causing so much pain
This thing lives in my heart
It’s taking me away

Falling down into the sun, now
Going right into your true house
Falling down into your arms, now
Going right into your true house

Now I know just what you want
I see it every day
Now I know just what you are
I see the game you play
Now I know just what I want
I see it every day
Now I know just who I am
I see your pretty face

Song crafting

Escape limitations

Songs act as escape mechanisms designed to save us from the ordinary and rise against the pitfalls on the long, hard journey towards the light

LIGHTROAD

LIGHTROAD – C’ mon and take it away

Song lyrics:

Living in this life, uncertain of the why
Fallen from the sky, learning how to fly

You been around in the underground
You bang your head, up and down
You re coming down like a thunderbolt
Crushing in the middle of town

C’mon and take it away
You know there’s no other way yeah
So let this be my escape
C’mon and take it away yeah, all away
C’mon and take it away

Looking in my mind, ugliness and lies
Through the dark and night, flashes of a light

LAW OF ATTRACTION

“You get what you give”

The audience knows. In every live performance of any kind, there is an underground communion between the performer and the spectator, you cant lie, the energy you send into the audience is exactly what you get back
