In Your Memory

New Image

Hey guys,

Last week, my boyfriend’s band, In Your Memory, released their first music video, “Layers of Lies (L.O.L)”.

When I first met them, almost two years ago, they were a fairly new, four person band who were still working out their personal differences and trying to break into the local music scene. Since DC does not have a very big “rock” scene, making a name for themselves in the DC/metro area proved to be challenging. Yet, their determination allowed them to overcome any obstacle that was put in their way, and now two years and one person later, they are thriving.

I can honestly say that I have never met such a talented and dedicated group of young men. The music they make comes straight from their hearts and when they perform, they perform with such passion that one can almost feel it in the audience.

As much as these guys get on my last nerve, I couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of them. It has been such an amazing experience to witness their growth not only as a band, but as brothers. This is only the beginning, I can’t wait to see what this journey has in store for you guys!

In Your Memory, “Layers of Lies” 


Make it Stop (September’s Children)

As you all may know, September is national Suicide Awareness month. In honor of this month I want to share with you a song by one of my favorite bands, Rise Against. Hope you all enjoy.


Woah, woah.

Bang, bang go the coffin nails, like a breath exhaled,
Then gone forever.
It seems like just yesterday, how did I miss the red flags raised?
Think back to the days we laughed.
We braved these bitter storms together.
Brought to his knees he cried,
But on his feet he died.

What God would damn a heart?
And what God drove us apart?
What God could?

Make it stop.
Let this end.
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge.
It’s come to this,
A weightless step.
On the way down singing,
Woah, woah.

Bang, bang from the closet walls,
The schoolhouse halls,
The shotgun’s loaded.
Push me and I’ll push back.
I’m done asking, I demand.

From a nation under God,
I feel its love like a cattle prod.
Born free, but still they hate.
Born me, no I can’t change.

It’s always darkest just before the dawn.
So stay awake with me, let’s prove them wrong.

Make it stop.
Let this end,
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge.
It’s come to this,
A weightless step.
On the way down singing,
Woah, woah.

The cold river washed him away,
But how could we forget?
The gatherings hold candles, but not their tongues.

And too much blood has flown from the wrists,
Of the children shamed for those they chose to kiss.
Who will rise to stop the blood?

We’re calling for,
Insisting on, a different beat, yeah.
A brand new song.

Whoa, whoa [x3]

Make it stop,
Let this end.
This life chose me, I’m not lost in sin.
But proud I stand of who I am,
I plan to go on living.

Make it stop,
Let this end,
All these years pushed to the ledge,
But proud I stand, of who I am,
I plan to go on living
