about

On Boston’s North Shore, a new chapter in Americana music is being written by a 5-piece band that is sweeping the underground with their incredibly dynamic sound.

Vanilla Manvelope is breathing new life into classic styles of music such as blues, folk, rock, and soul; the culmination of sounds made popular by icons such as Tom Waits, Billie Holiday, Adele, and countless others. The texture of the music is interwoven to beautifully provocative lyrics, and each song has it’s own set of characters and story-lines that are interesting and timeless.

The strong musical kinship of Eric Reardon (guitar) and Sarah Seminski (lyrics/vocals) is at the foundation of the band’s unique sound, along with the unstoppable rhythm section of Joe Cesarz (bass), Jim Larkin (drums) and Chris Sink (keys).

Always impactful and evocative, and mostly complex- Vanilla Manvelope will surround you in a fury of sound that is a reflection of the inner workings of all of us. Get ready to go inside the timeless stories of the human experience

Track Name: We Hit Oil
We Hit Oil

What to do about green eyes making my brown eyes blue
What to do about Samson who came in like a dream and when I woke up he was bald.
When I woke up he was bald!

Uh oh. Oh! (2xs)

Some call it passion
some call it fire
I call it love

Some call it danger
some call it desire
you call it love

Uh oh. Oh! (2xs)

I touched something in you with something inside of me that has no control
There is no off/on switch. No right/wrong just go go go.
Even if I try to hold back this feeling, nature would say no.
There’s something inside of you, inside of me that’s bound to explode!

Uh oh. Oh! (2xs)

We Hit oil! We Hit Oil!
Track Name: Jigsaw Fit
Jigsaw Fit

We go together like a jigsaw fit, with jagged complex bony bits and hard working hearts that never ever quit.
You never know which way the wind blows,we light the match and watch them sparks go.
You and me we make such big flames, we call for help but firefighters couldn't even contain.
SO why complain when it's so clear, I suffer insufferably when you are or are not here.
I take away pride and I take away pain, your pulling me backwards and forwards and then you're doing it to me over and over again.
Track Name: You Don't Bring Me Flowers Anymore
You Don't Bring Me Flowers Anymore

I ask you for a drink of water but you’re bringing me wine all the time.

At first it was polite. You treated me nice, but after a bottle I can’t tell what’s right.

The ring you put on my finger matches the tattoo on my arm
of 2 hearts colliding in a firefight underneath the full moonlight.
But you ask for a dance and I feel just like the first time we met.
You get that look in your eye the kind you find behind
the door that’s locked you can’t get inside.
But oh. when we dance I feel just like the first time we touched.
You get that look in your eye the kind you find behind
the door that’s locked you can’t get inside.

You said violation is the only way to a man’s heart.
The siren rang when we first touched. Now I can’t turn it off.

When you left this time you left no trace I could find.
I’m gonna close my eyes and dream of you and I and kiss the air just one more time.
10 years since I met you. 10 Years since we’ve been apart.

You don’t bring me flowers anymore so these tears will have to water my heart.
Track Name: Princess Eyes
Princess Eyes
She’s tired of her life, she’s steppin out tonight
She starts out with her hair, it goes into her eyes
Making sure everything, everything looks alright
For those dark spotlights


Don’t get yourself too excited
She doesn’t like the men that fumble hello
She’s been waiting all day long
to shimmy shake her hips so strong


She’s gonna shake you up
she’s gonna spin you out
it’s so loud you can’t hear the words coming out of her mouth


1 shot, 2 shots of whiskey
3,4,5 is all it takes. She will laugh at what you say
You hide your face in shame
the man with no name.
Got nothing but pride swallow, swallow then you hide
Then you go inside


You got her heart-on, seal the deal you rocked it
but i got this girlfriend at home, oh fuck it
one more drink she gave you her mother’s locket
tonight you’ll keep it safe inside your pocket


You’re gonna shake her up
Your’e gonna spin her out
it’s so loud you can’t hear the words coming out of her mouth


Loneliness led me to you, it’s not love. Just something to do (3xs)


Princess Eyes open wide to early morning sunshine
She looks up to the left, her clothes are to the right
Making sure everything, everything looks all right
He’s on his side
Track Name: Scarlett
Scarlett

From across a crowded room I spotted you.
I spotted you
and made a move all too soon.

It was too late anyway. Fate wrote the script we would play.

Da da da... you made a move all too soon (2xs)

Well she comes to me every night and day but I never know when she’ll come around with a passion that drives me insane.

Da da da... you made a move all too soon (2xs)

He feels his mouth’s on fire with that language of desire that has no words but ooh and ahh.

He said no words but ooh and ahh (2xs)
Track Name: Gravity
Fire lights up my mind in flames
Smoke comes in the room, enveloping the room
A crowded room, I'm in the room
exhale the air I'm breathing it's still there whirling round in circles dizzying up my thoughts in a jumble
Can you please tell gravity stop working on me?
