Music for me has become a way of life; its hard to explain how it has changed my life. Music IS MADE to vent ..THE FULLNESS of expression. It helps us heal the wounds and sometimes cover the scars. Music for me is the transfer of pain to greatness, to be greater than the pain I've been attacked by. music is my life, music is for me, extremely spiritual. Growing up struggling was a blessing and a currse; admiring all the wrong things, while simultaniously growing up with some of the best game/knowledge from the old heads, made me who I am today. i believe this art we call hip hop IS In the hood, RAPPIN in cyphers, creating it to be our hobby then perfecting it into a sport' and it saved many lives. But I write for the lives it did not save and the horrors and story's I've been threw'. I now have a story to tell...to be continued

The name arose from hours and hours of jamming without the use of verbal communication, hence we had the "same" brain when it came to our musical vision.the band strives to push musical boundaries while playing without rules or restrictions. Who says a band can't play death metal AND easy listening love by the fire slow jams? “THE SAME BRAIN” was formed in 2005 and by 2006 had recorded a handful of tightly crafted rock songs for myspace.Big guitars and big drums,the demos highlighted their influences ranging from 70's arena rock and grunge tones of the nineties,to softer moments and even incorparating elements of hip hop.2006 saw the Brain open for Atlanta rap rock heavy weights Rehab while gaining new friends on myspace.In 2007 The Same Brain won their first round of the Emergenza sponcered "battle of the bands" with first prize being a trip to Germany to play a festival with global acts.Along with that accomplishment,the Brain began writing even darker moodier music thankx to the bands secret weapon Brucelively and debuted new songs on myspace.The band continues on battling boring bands who seem to make the same record over and over again.To the people who strive for deversity in their lives,we cheers U!and play for u.The second round of Emergenza is May 1st 2008 at the Vinyl downtown.We would love to see u all there!
