about

This album is so much more than just a simple collection of 12 songs. This is the true story of my heart and soul going from being born, wanting and needing to live, learning to love with all my heart, losing what I thought was everything, nearly dying, surviving, and becoming more than I ever thought I could be. This album could be your life.

Download it now or click the link and listen. It's an epic story and there is a lot to take in so the lyrics are there for you to read along with.

The mission is simple. Live and keep on living.

Listen, Tell your friends, repeat.



A review: Sometimes a musician feels the need to step outside the box. Try something different. Explore other aspects of musicianship. To push themselves in a way that is not their normality. It’s something we all think about but rarely do. It’s a fear to become that vulnerable and reveal something completely different that people are not used to seeing or hearing. But it is something that is necessary to some musicians. They have all these emotions built up and they need to come out in some form or another. Dan Bobek is known for his band Raw Mojo and his post grunge-like solo work. However, his new album is a step in a different direction for him. His vulnerability is unleashed with his new album Vibrating on Hi.

With this new album, Dan has written songs that are not his norm. He steps outside of himself and opens up both musically and personally. With the help of a Kickstarter campaign, he hopes to take these songs to a new level of his musical career to share with the world.

In his own words, “I really want to do this right. I have spent far too long in this shell, too afraid to move beyond my fears. I am so proud of this album I have recorded and I’d love to see it packaged beautifully, to give people something to hold and talk about, and to get over my fears of traveling the world playing my music and making true connections with each and every one of you. Quality of and in life is very important. I spent the last week unable to walk without extreme pain due to a genetic problem with my joints. I honestly don’t know how many days I have left on this planet, none of us do, so it is high time to make this main bucket list goal I have into a reality.”

The album is packed with songs that come straight from his heart and he is working hard to be able to show this to the world. Personally, this album is one of his best and deserves to be heard by as many people as possible. With songs like the opening “Making Hay” to the subtle “To Be Alive”. “Glass Badass” has his classical stamp of the dark humor he has so masterfully accomplished. “Made to Shine” is exactly what Dan is made to do. He even throws in some 80′s like electro-pop with a song called “Stella D’oro” and pushes even further at the end of the album with an a capella song called “Thank You”.

Dan stretches his mind and opens up with every song on this album. A true musician is one who can create without boundaries. Dan Bobek does just that with this album. He has transformed himself and opened up like never before and has unintentionally put him on a completely different level of musicianship. His songwriting is greatly displayed as his soul comes gushing out for the world to see. You would be doing yourself a great dishonor by not listening to this album with an open mind. Check out his Kickstarter link below and support a musician who deserves the chance to break out.

Track Name: Making Hay
I'm gonna glow
Like the sun
Because I know
I'm the one
I'm living sound
I'm gettin' clean
I'm having fun
Being me

Vibrating on high frequency
Catching every good wave we could beam

I'm on the rise
Like the moon
Breaking the tide
I am the groove
So I'm striking now
While the iron is hot
So baby come on
Let's give this a shot

Vibrating on our frequency
Catching every good wave we could beam

Before you're born you're in the dark
Life looks hot but that's the spark
Illuminate what you have inside
You have a choice to do or die
Making hay while the sun shines
Making hay while the sun shines
Making hay while the sun shines
Track Name: To Be Alive
I'd never seen so much blood
Between the road and my eyes
They say it's not where you go
But how you get where you arrive

Remember to be alive
Now is the present and you're a prize
Remember to be alive

You ought to know what you have
So when the open road feels narrow
Ten thousand blackbirds fall
And leave a trail to follow

Remember to be alive
Now is the present and you're a prize
Under the moon there is a light
Remember to be alive

Flesh is soft and skin deep
Cut profound baby teeth

I try to clean up the mess
Until not a spot is found
But then I have to confess
Some spots belong on the ground

Remember to be alive
Now is the present and you're a prize
Under the moon there is a light
Remember to be alive
Remember to be alive
Remember to be alive
Track Name: My Secret
I want to win the big time lottery
I want you to be curled up next to me
I want to see us covered in success
I want to spawn complete happiness

I believe these things are set in motion
I believe it's happening right now
I believe you can hear me when I'm singing
I believe it will all come true somehow

I want to reach the top of your charts
I want to live in passion making art
I want you to talk with me tonight
I want everyone I know to be alright

I believe these things are set in motion
I believe it's happening right now
I believe you can hear me when I'm singing
I believe it will all come true somehow

We're receiving everything we give
We're receiving everything we give
Track Name: Gla$$ Bada$$
I'm a good looking, ass whoopin, clean conscious, son of a gun
I'm a long haired, holed pants, humble hearted dude of fun
Got cold cash, big stacks of hot loving coming with me
You'll feel good, you should, too because to dance is free

I'm so bright when I kiss the sun
I taste more than a golden tongue
You can see through me I've cleared a path
You could call me a glass bad ass

I'm just your introverted outgoing relaxed intense man
A gin drinking, vapor smoking flavored peach in a can
I'll give you goosebumps, two lumps of sugar and a real good time
In your coffee or you tea as you please to relax unwind

I'm so bright when I kiss the sun
I taste more than a golden tongue
You can see through me I've cleared a path
You could call me a glass bad ass

I'ma be real good, to myself and across the nation
Because we should use our love like a broadcast station
Everyone's got something to move and I move mountains
Everybody's got some place to be and I'm here now

I'm so bright when I kiss the sun
I taste more than a golden tongue
You can see through me I've cleared a path
You could call me a glass bad ass

I'm a glass bad ass
Time to kick it in the ass
I'm a glass bad ass
Mother Motha...
Track Name: I've Got You
Rain pours down, droplets on my head
feeling good, just a little wet
as I walk home
I'm not alone
Oh I've got me!

I want to give, and I can give it all
sacrifice, I have to risk the fall
and fall I might
but that's alright
Oh now I'm free!

Took a chance, and a chance has taken me
Said my prayers, now living out my dreams
and they came true
Just like I knew
Oh, I've got you!

To take a risk one learns to fall
So dare to rise above it all
Track Name: Made To Shine
I once had a dream
Everything
was perfect

When I woke it seemed
It was lost
In the valley

and I know it's time to
place you in the sky, come on now and
let out your inner light
become the greatest fire
Because I know you're made to shine

That was yesterday
Now today
Love becomes me

And no longer afraid
What's to come
Or where it's going

and I know it's time to
place you in the sky, come on now and
let out your inner light
become the greatest fire
Because I know you're made to shine

Shine, shine, shine, shine on...
Love, love, love, love on...
Shine, shine, shine, shine on...
Track Name: Off The Chain
And the birds all flew away
And the dog was let off the chain
And the gas was pouring in the rain
And in the fields there was no more pain

She never wanted him to find out, and she did it time and again
When he could no longer ignore doubt, he went looking for a friend

And the birds all flew away
And the dog was let off the chain
And the gas was pouring in the rain
And in the fields there was no more pain

She was backed into a corner, so she turned his doubt on him
He did everything he thought of, but she would not own her sin

And the birds all flew away
And the dog was let off the chain
And the gas was pouring in the rain
And in the fields there was no more pain

When He left and never came back, she wouldn't listen to his cries
So she lost him in at that moment, but she got to keep her lies

And the birds all flew away
And the dog was let off the chain
And the gas was pouring in the rain
And in the fields there was no more pain
Track Name: What You're Looking For
It's alright if you need to breathe
You'll always be a little angel to me
Step out and find what you can't ignore
I'll be there should you need support
Like you shown me

It's okay if you need to cry
You got to know low so you can go high
Intertwined and put on hold
I opened up and bore my soul
Like you shone me

One day you''ll find what you're looking for
One day you''ll find what you're looking for
One day you''ll find what you're looking for
One day you''ll find what you're looking for

It's easy to be where you're supposed to be
You're always there so just be free
Half the answers you already know
The other half will come and go
Like you shown me

One day you''ll find what you're looking for
One day you''ll find what you're looking for
One day you''ll find what you're looking for
One day you''ll find what you're looking for
Track Name: Wither
Plant the seed, I am brand new
Among the weeds was where I grew
Below a tree where the sun shone through
You water me and fed my roots

But I could With her
Yes I could with her
Oh I could Wither
Without you

Hold me close I need your heat
When it's cold you keep me green
Help me grow free from disease
Love me so you tend to my leaves

But I could With her
Yes I could with her
Oh I could Wither
Without you

Without you
without you
I'll always have you
Track Name: Stella D'oro
I'll be your paperboy Stella D'oro
I love the way you bob your head and torso
We flip the world using an arm motion
"How does it work?", you say "magic potion"

Precision of a surgeon
She's so distinctly Persian
Dig in the way she's flirtin'
Simply she's real certain

I'll be the nickel you be smoking all night
I'll be your partner in a poker chip fight
We'll search all day for the butter cow
Thousands of mayflies in July somehow

Precision of a surgeon
She's so distinctly Persian
Dig in the way she's flirtin'
Simply she's real certain

Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah...

I'll be your paperboy Stella D'oro
I love the way you bob your head and torso
We flip the world using an arm motion
"How does it work?", you say "magic potion"

Precision of a surgeon
She's so distinctly Persian
Dig in the way she's flirtin'
Simply she's real certain
Track Name: I Know
You could wash your brain and hypnotize
what you know with doubtful lies
You can take your chance off the shelf
The truth will give you back yourself

And I know a little courage is all it takes
And I know you don't need luck to catch a break
When you know the stakes

You can work to death from 9 to 5
Or sit at home and scape on by
The road is there now take a step
Get to give and give to get

And I know keep on going you'll get it right
And I know you don't need eyes to have insight
It'll be alright

Oh yeah, I woke today feeling tried and true
Ah ha, with a little love I'm going to share with you
Oh yeah, it's ok, if it makes you happy seize the day
Ah ha, I woke today feeling tried... feeling tried and true

Before you know it life's passed you by
You made excuses for how and why
You can live a life if you dare to dream
You've got the lock now use the key

And I know every story has it's end
And I know you needn't break when you can bend
Oh I'm still your friend

Oh yeah, I woke today feeling tried and true
Ah ha, with a little love I'm going to share with you
Oh yeah, it's ok, if it makes you happy seize the day
Ah ha, I woke today feeling tried... feeling tried and true
Track Name: Thank You
Thank you...

Thank you for healing me
Thank you for the love
Thank you for being here
In the wealth I've become

Thank you...
