about

The Silkstones, "HER" includes Ryan Phillips, Dylan Wagner and Blake Lowry’ and Rus Andrew, The band are back with their sophomore album “HER. The new album made up of eight songs sees a departure from the debut acoustic release “Record Machine". The songwriting is now a partnership of Phillips and Wagner. “HER” is unique for its wide variety of genres and influences spanning from folk to reggae. The album also steers away from personal tales of growing up to songs that touch on a wide range of topics from sailing daydreams to issues such as mental illness. Working with producers such as Leeroy Stagger in the past, the group decided to move into a more experimental studio to coproduce this album with Daniel Enns, a producer who has been active for over a decade. Songs that cannot be missed include “Better Half”, “Cold Love” “Her (Blue Dress)” and the heart felt “Brother”

We would like to thank our families and fans for all their support, with a special thanks to Stephen Lind, Brett Kendall, Brett Weighill, Leeann Klassen, Corley Farough, Heidi Elsley and Jay Herrington.

Track Name: Sailing
Sailing

I just go sailing stealing wind
Thinking about all the places I’ve been
Her whisper slowly makes its rounds
And I forget no one else is around

I’ve never felt so at home
Sitting in the summers sun

I just go sailing stealing wind
Thinking about all the people I’ve been
Her whisper slowly makes its rounds
And I forget no one else is around

I’ve never felt so at home
Sitting in the summers sun, sun, sun
Track Name: Better Half
Better Half

Tell me how
Its been a while
Since you went down
Can you make me smile

I’m not that bad
I ain’t so good
I don’t need words
I just want touch

to be, to feel, to want it together
I know its me I’m slightly under weather
to see, to need, to make it together
I know you see your always just my better half


So tell me when
Il tell you how
Could you be less quiet
when life’s so loud

I need this now
I needed then
Could you use your mouth?
Could you make me send

To be, to feel to want it together
I know its me I’m always under weather
to see, to need, to make it together
I know you see your always just my better half
Track Name: Suddenly
Suddenly

When you look upon yourself
You see the world and what you help
Yourself into and what is mine
You made a curse and you will find
The same things there that you left here
A sullen wish a hidden fear
And you are there and I am here
Oh suddenly


You’ll die alone
You’ll die alone
Cus you take what you hate
And you break what you want oh no

Where there’s streets there’s always fights
You are there and you know I
Cant talk back to what you’ve done
You broke me down you think you’ve won
The last word here, a last laugh there
A jokers wink a soldiers stare
And you are there and I am here
Oh suddenly

You’ll die alone
You’ll die alone
Cus you take what you hate
And you break what you want oh no

I want you so bad

Cus you take what you take
And you break what you want oh no

I want you so bad
Track Name: Oh Louise
Oh Louise

Truth Time
I can’t love you
And the truest crime
Is that you care

But smile because the skies above you

Take me to the hilly bends
Drag me through the ruts
Take my bones to the rivers stones
Make me think of such Louise

Now were getting older
And that summers dress has collected dust
And your keen eyes have lost their wonder

Take through the streams again
Push me through the mud
Call me names and tear me down
Tell me things of love Louise

Truth time
I’m a stranger
And true lies
Time cant tell

Take me to the wooden doors
Open up the gates
Tell me things of love and such
Make me think of hate Louise
Track Name: Cold Love
Cold Love

Cold love
I’m needing
Its teasing
I’ve got to explain
Cold Love
This season
I’m needing
I got to Oh Oh Oh

Cold Love
Its teasing
I’m needing
I got to explain
Cold Love
This season
I’m needing
I got to Oh Oh

Truth Truth
Tell me what you use
Little darling Clues
To what your lips cant do

Cold love
I’m needing
Its freezing
I’ve got to explain
Track Name: Her (Blue Dress)
Her (Blue Dress)

She stands out in her blue dress
Surround sounds of his new mix
It works out
All for now
And she knows what their saying
Got no job but he’s preying
It works out
Well for now

And he knows its important
To go out but he’s poor again
It works out
Just not now

In the cold love is warming
And they know its important
It works out
All works out

They see through each others eyes
They push past the dawn
They look on and on
Soaring
Track Name: Brother
Brother

Brother are those words in fancy dress?
It’s not nothing, if its something that you miss
Brother I wont let you down again
Its just something’s are better off pretend

Cus I know that you know that your not dumb
And its sad that you laugh but were not done

Brother have you found a yourself again?
Its not nothing and I’m not your only friend
Brother well were not moms little kids
Made for something’s better than we did

Cus I know that you know that your not dumb
And its sad that you laugh but were not done
Cus I want what you want but its not fun
And Its sad that you laugh and were not done

Brother…
