Letras

DRIVE ME

 

drive me baby / drive me nice and slow / my tank is full / but my breaks don't work no more / miles and miles away / from the days we were born / I'm not brand new / but one thing I can guarantee / I’ll last longer than the models of your age / take me on a test drive / and feel the wind in your face / drive me baby / drive me nice and slow / I'm not brand new / but one thing I can guarantee / take me on a test drive and feel my power in your hands / drive me baby / drive me all night long

 

I HAVE SCREWED UP

 

early in the morning in a bed that’s not mine / lots of empty glasses of beer, whiskey and wine / clothes all over the floor and they’re not just mine / then I looked at my hands / God damn they’re tied / suddenly somebody opened the door / she said hey baby, are you ready for some more / and I said who are you / where am I / did we do it / so, close the door /‘cause I’m ready for some more / looked at the window I see the night has come / looked at my hands I see the ring is gone / then I realized I ain’t got no home / oh Dear Lord, at least I can write a new song / it’s just like this / I have screwed up my life / in one night  and a day / I ain’t got no place to go / so, can I have some more

 

 

BITTERNESS

 

have you heard about those people with no feelings / with black clouds hanging over their heads / well if you fail you’re gonna feed their souls / and their bitterness is contagious / don’t you know there’s vaccine against it / but if it’s caught too late there’s no treatment / to be safe don’t you listen to those people / get your own success and find love in everyone else / don’t you know it is contagious / don’t you know watch out and save your soul

 

 

HARD AND COLD

 

I said I’m looking for / another place to go / I don’t belong in here / it’s getting really cold / getting oh so cold / nobody understands / what’s going on inside / it looks nice and safe / but it’s getting cold / getting awfully cold / I’m packing up I’m on my way / hope and love have gotta come / my last goodbye is all I’ll leave / know no pain where I’m going

 

 

MORE THAN YOU KNOW

 

I love you more / than you think it seems / I wish I could show you everything / but I just don’t know / how to make my words come out of my heart / ‘cause when I see you words run away from me / and all that I’ve got it’s a silly grin / I hope you can see what I feel inside of me / then I will give you my heart and soul / I wish I could say / I love you so / more than you know / I love you so / from the bottom of my heart

 

TOO SOON

 

yeah my baby said to me / go buy that golden ring you're gonna marry me / lave your guitar and let's stay together / throw all your freedom and love me forever / and I said my baby bye bye so long / I have no money and I'm too young / you've been playing with me since 2008 / I've been playing my guitar since 1998 / too soon to get married / my baby she's gone and cried alone / she was so sorry when she got back home / she talked to me on the telephone / she said I'm sorry honey I was wrong / and I said too soon to get married / I love you baby yes you know / but I can't stop playing my guitar no no / we can live together but I'm just gonna sing / we'll keep my guitars but no golden rings

BIOGRAFIA

Residindo atualmente em Los Angeles, Artur Menezes ganhou recentemente o "Blues Challenge" promovido pela Santa Clarita Valley Blues Society, uma das várias sociedades de blues que existem nos Estados Unidos. Com essa vitória, ele vai competir em 2017 no International Blues Challenge em Memphis, promovido pela "Blues Foundation", com mais de 250 bandas de vários países. Será o 33º ano do festival. Além disso, Artur fez shows nos eventos "Cadillac Zack Presents The Best Blues in California" no "Maui Sugar Mill Salloon" e no "Malarkey's", ambos locais onde grandes nomes da cena blues atual se apresentam, tais como Joe Bonamassa, Eric Gales e Philip Sayce.
 
Artur Menezes não só toca guitarra, mas canta, compõe e interpreta de uma forma tão peculiar que impressiona até os grandes mestres. Com três discos lançados: "Early to marry", "#2" (pré-selecionado ao Prêmio da Música Brasileira de 2013 na categoria de “Melhor Disco em Língua Estrangeira”) e "Drive Me" (2015), Artur continua no caminho  de mesclar suas influências com o blues, definindo um estilo mais moderno e verdadeiro.
 
Em sua trajetória, Artur esteve em turnê na Europa em 2014, onde foi headline do "Augustibluus Festival", além de fazer shows em casas de blues na Inglaterra. Em 2015, esteve por duas vezes no México e em 2013 na Argentina. Nos anos de 2006, 2007 e 2011, residiu em Chicago, onde teve a oportunidade de dividir o palco com grandes nomes do blues - dentre eles Buddy Guy - e tocar nos mais tradicionais bares de blues de lá. Em 2012, Artur fez os shows de abertura no RJ e em SP para a turnê de Buddy Guy no Brasil. Ainda neste ano, Artur liderou uma disputa – empatado com uma banda de Los Angeles -, entre mais de 2 mil artistas de todo o mundo, por uma vaga para tocar com Eric Clapton no Crossroads Guitar Festival, um dos maiores e mais concorridos festivais de guitarristas do mundo, que aconteceu no Madison Square Garden, em NY. 
 
Artur Menezes foi headline de inúmeros festivais de jazz e blues no Brasil, tais como: "Rio das Ostras Jazz & Blues Festival” (RJ), considerado o maior do gênero na América Latina; “Manguinhos Jazz & Blues" (ES), "Garanhuns Jazz Festival" (PE), "Festival de Jazz & Blues de Guaramiranga" (CE), "Lençóis Jazz & Blues Festival" (MA), “Festival SESC Jazz & Blues” em S. J. do Rio Preto (SP), Piracicaba (SP), Bauru (SP) e Presidente Prudente (SP), “Festival Blues de Londrina” (PR), dentre outros. 
 
Artur planeja gravar um novo álbum em 2017 na California, com lançamento no EUA e Brasil.
