about

Jonah Sissoyev Portland, Oregon

Born and raised in Portland Oregon I have drawn inspiration from the mountains that surround and the vast Oregon coastlines.

When I am not playing music you can usually find me working on my vintage trucks, practicing my "listening skills" or trying to get lost on back roads. I hope to see you somewhere along the way

Track Name: Canyons
three weeks now, i laid in bed
with a storm, in my chest.
raised a smile, to half mast, at my very best.

I've been spending, my days measuring
all the canyons, that you left.
throwing rocks, off of cliffs, in my head.

You said yes, i said no
you said stay, i said go
you put your hands in the air
but i was the one that pulled the trigger.

I've been taking, inventory
of how, we wrote our story.
distant lands, memories made
cut just like a blade

You said yes, i said no
you said stay, i said go
you put your hands in the air
but i was the one that pulled the trigger.
Track Name: Golden Coast
California, i was dreaming
golden state with golden women.
I was young, seventeen
eyes as big, as a apple pie.

i want to go home
to where i was born
mountains of meat
oceans of whiskey
great river road, come lead me home (2x)

we all sat down, around the fire
night gave way to, a rooster day break.
pushed the sleep, out of our eyes
raspberry breeze, wild and free
warm as a summer night (2x)

i want to go home
to where i was born
mountains of meat
oceans of whiskey
great river road, come lead me home (2x)
Track Name: 1969
we can pretend to be stars tonight
a thousand miles away from home
on the twenty first of july
TV screen 1969

Im dreaming in the day
im sleeping in the night
Valley low, mountains high
keep your chin up boy
till the day, you die.

We saw a man, plant his feet
shadow of the sun, making history.
sudenly i was the size of pea
pretty blue circle far beneath.

Im dreaming in the day
im sleeping in the night
Valley low, mountains high
keep your chin up boy
till the day, you die.

Gather around, put up your feet
listen, closely
theres a castle in the air, yellow brick road
one more page, off to bed you go.

Im dreaming in the day
im sleeping in the night
Valley low, mountains high
keep your chin up boy
till the day, you die.
Track Name: Strangers
Our eyes crisp as a winter night
all my thoughts smear the light.
there was an age when my ears believed
the mouths of our fathers and what they see.

oh, theres an echo inside
of, if we are both ganna hide
can we still hold, the warmth of words?
I can't go home, with no wood to burn.

Have i lost head like a coin in the deep
headless horseman at a costume party.
I've been sinking in the circle of my friends
there's a fire in my belly and smoke on my breath.

oh, theres an echo inside
of, if we are both ganna hide
can we still hold, the warmth of words?
I can't go home, with no wood to burn.

I can't go home with no wood to burn.
Track Name: Rock and a hard place
i want to know, when you turned around
was i one hundred miles, up in the clouds?
funny how the photos, never change
picture of a ghost, under my own name.

Starring out the window, I'm captured by the frame
watching my own love, drive away.
search my pockets, i lost the keys
if they can't be found, than I'm gone missing.

i don't know, where i am going
Am i on the run or am i free?
I've never been proud to say
I made my home in a rock and hard place.

the record spinning, all the songs that we heard
get me off this merry go round, so i can learn.
Easy come, easy go
If loving you don't cost me a penny than, I'm in trouble.
I see the price, she is climbing to the sky
I better grow me some wings, learn to fly.

i don't know, where i am going
Am i on the run or am i free?
I've never been proud to say
I made my home in a rock and hard place.
