about

Factories and Alleyways - Biography

Factories and Alleyways is a band of brothers, bonded together in the melodies they sing and the stories they tell. Taking their cues from the timeless works of The Band, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, The Eagles, Bruce Springsteen, and Whiskeytown, Factories and Alleyways produces music lush with three-part harmonies, delivered with raw emotion and soul. The band performs songs that bristle with live energy and warmth - they'll make you dance, they'll make you cry.

Drawing from influences in country, roots, rock, folk and gospel, the group's new eponymous release reverberates with honest songwriting and undeniable brotherhood. Recorded at the Hive Studio with Engineer Jesse Gander (The Pack AD, Japandroids, Billy the Kid, Hard Drugs) the band’s debut EP features six songs that demonstrate a strong knack for memorable melodies, infectious harmonies and beautiful arrangements.

This is campfire music, to be shared together in the warmth of the flames. This is road trip music, blasting at the adventure's beginning, playing softly on the long drive home. This is music created and played by four brothers for no other reason than that they LOVE IT. Factories and Alleyways is Jeremy Allingham, real-life brothers Matt and Josh Denny-Keys and Alex Glassford, all of whom sing and play multiple instruments. Factories and Alleyways is a Roots / Americana band from Vancouver, BC.

Track Name: Without a Buck
Left without a buck
The money's gone and all you got to show's an empty bottle baby
Runnin' out of luck
Play the hand you're dealt
You read 'em and you weep my darlin'
Going up in smoke
You're leavin', you're leavin' me alone
Nothing left to show
For the hearts we won, the love we lost
The high stake games we liked to play

Gambled on your love
Dollars gone to dust
What I'd give
For one more night with you

You know I'm left without a buck
The money's gone you're leavin' me
You know I'm runnin' out of luck
You gotta roll the dice to play the game
When you left me all alone
And I couldn't bare to face the day
You know I'm left without a buck
When the hand you're dealt takes faith

Loved a wanderin' fool
Fell for all the lines I said and you believed 'em darling
Pretty southern girl
For the way she walked, the feeling sparked
The cold pacific wind was blowing
Going up in smoke
You're leavin', you're leavin' me alone
Guess I went for broke
Yeah I had her in my arms you see
But now she's slipped away from me

Gambled on your love
Dollars gone to dust
What I'd give
For one more night with you

You know I'm left without a buck
The money's gone you're leavin' me
You know I'm runnin' out of luck
You gotta roll the dice to play the game
When you left me all alone
And I couldn't bare to face the day
You know I'm left without a buck
When the hand you're dealt takes faith
Baby don't you run
Track Name: 1000 Beers
You should know
Not to hang, not to cling
I was born to this world running free
Kick back baby, let's enjoy the ebb and flow
Whiskey
Guitar
They're all I know
All I know

I swear I drank a thousand beer
And I must have lost my mind
But I'm going out west to see my girl
And I'll see you somewhere down the line

Just step back
I don't yell, I don't fight
Live today and we'll see about tonight
I'll be rolling down that long and winding road
Whiskey
Guitar
They're all I know
All I know

I swear I drank a thousand beer
And I must have lost my mind
But I'm going out West to see my girl
And I'll see you somewhere down the line
I swear I'd wait a thousand years
Just to hold her in my arms
But I'm going out west to see my girl
And I'll see you somewhere down the line

I'll be leaving, you'll be waiting
Westward wind blows, see my baby
Watch the sunrise, long horizon
See you somewhere down the line
Track Name: Lonely Road
I've been the hand that's held up kings
I've been the saint who's let 'em fall
Yeah I recall
I've been betrayed, and done the same
I've wrested fate and lost it all
I've seen that fall
I've been around and I've been knocked down
Try to walk the line, but I want it all
Drop every wall
I want it all

Something inside is gonna make you wonder
What the hell you're doing here
You gotta kick to keep from going under
Lord it's a lonesome kind of fear

That I'll never say
What I'll always know
And disappoint you when you're low
These things that I have seen
These places I'll go
They're gonna lead down a lonely road

I've sworn to lies and I've touched the sky
When all that's left is ash and bone
I go on alone
I've been afraid, been lost for days
Without the strength to carry on
But knew I had it all along
I've settled scores, locked open doors
Try to place the time but I want it all
Drown out the call

Something inside is gonna make you wonder
What the hell you're doing here
You gotta kick to keep from going under
Lord it's a lonesome kind of fear

That I'll never say
What I'll always know
And disappoint you when you're low
These things that I have seen
These places I'll go
They're gonna lead down a lonely road
Track Name: Right Now
Well I know right now
I'm gonna be with you
I'm gonna be with you for the rest of the night my dear
And I feel so good when you hold my hand
I'm gonna be with you for the rest of life my lover

Now the moon and the stars are shining
Gonna wait 'til the morning light
Gotta know when the moment is right

Yeah I need you tonight
With those stars a shinin' bright
When the moonlight hit your eyes
Hold you close and come alive
I need you now
Right here, right now

Well I know right now
I'm gonna be with you
I'm gonne be with you right now for all my years
And I know right now
I'm gonna stay with you
I'm gonna stay with you, whoa

Now the moon and the stars are shining
Gonna wait 'til the morning light
Gotta know when the moment is right

Yeah I need you tonight
With those stars a shinin' bright
When the moonlight hit your eyes
Hold you close and come alive
I need you now
Right here, right now

Well I know right now
Do wanna spend tonight alone
Down at the Railway Club, it's home to everyone
And I know right now
We're gonna sing and dance 'til dawn
And when the sun, it shines, ain't alone anymore

Now the moon and the stars are shining
Gonna wait 'til the morning light
Gotta know when the moment is right

Yeah I need you tonight
With those stars a shinin' bright
When the moonlight hit your eyes
Hold you close and come alive
I need you now
Right here, right now
Track Name: Hallelujah
Waiting on a lifeline
Wishin', hopin', prayin' I'll see a sign
But I don't know if I'll find
The strength to make it through another time

I'm singin' Hallelujah
Hallelujah

You been burnin' bridges
While I'm burying myself, my soul alive
You been catchin' lightning
Trying hard to then drown out the light

I'm singin' Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Come on baby, let's go ride again
Through those lonely streets just as the night is closin' in
Yeah I've seen my share of broken hearts and broken limbs
Always singin' Hallelujah

I'm singin' Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I'm singin' Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Come on baby, let's go ride again
Through those lonely streets just as the night is closin' in
Yeah I've seen my share of broken hearts and broken limbs
Always singin' Hallelujah
Track Name: Goodbye
Farewell, I'll miss you
But it's time to leave
The light's on, my whiskey is dry
The bottle is empty, the hour is late
Morning creeps up on the night
But your smile's a diamond, your heart is a light
My love's as big as the sky
So walk with me lover, put your hand in mine
Never stop living this life

The night is over, the sun's on the rise
I'm leavin' this town for a while
So dream of me sweetly, and sleep through the day
I'll be gone by the time you awake

So goodbye
My darling
Goodbye
Days of rain
Goodbye
Portland, Oregon
Goodbye
Mountain range

Remember our nights, they're all gone away
Wine-soaked and frozen in time
You are the ocean, you are the sky
You are what keeps me alive
Our time is over, but girl don't you cry
I'll be back again, lord knows I'll try
So kiss me and love me, and hold me real tight
Whisper those words, don't you lie

The night is over, the sun's on the rise
I'm leavin' this town for a while
So dream of me sweetly, and sleep through the day
I'll be gone by the time you awake

So goodbye
My darling
Goodbye
Days of rain
Goodbye
Portland, Oregon
Goodbye
Mountain range

Your smile's a diamond, your heart is a light
My love's as big as the sky
So kiss me and love me, and hold me real tight
Whisper those words don't you lie

So goodbye
My darling
Goodbye
Days of rain
Goodbye
Portland, Oregon
Goodbye
Part of me

Goodbye
