truth of poetry


August 2013

Ardent- a Great band which i am a part of.


Hometown:      Welland, ON, CA    
Genres:      Alternative    
Members: Josh Brazeau – Guitar/Vocals, Justin Brazeau – Drums, Dorian Grey – Bass, Kat Kerley – Vocals/Kalimba        

When a group of diverse individuals comes together with passion and drive for a common purpose, magic happens. Music has long been a part of Josh, Justin, Dorian, and Kat’s lives, but as heartbreak and struggle provided Josh Brazeau with the fuel to create powerful music, he knew that a career in music was a dream that he had no choice but to pursue.  His versatile vocals, dynamic lyrics, and driving, soulful guitar melodies are the backbone of Ardent.

Who better to go on a journey with you than people you love? When it came time for Josh to put a band together, his life-long friend Dorian Grey, with a similar dream to make the arts a life’s pursuit, left a life in China to help make Ardent happen.  Dorian’s poetic and artistic nature (check out his debut book “Elected Endeavours of Emperors”) make him an excellent bass player and future soloist and songwriter.  Justin Brazeau is not only a phenomenal drummer with an intense love of music, but is also Josh’s younger brother and an essential part of this adventure.  Justin’s proficient drumming combines a flair for metal with an incredible control that give Ardent an eclectic rock sound.  Josh’s partner Kat Kerley had forgotten the power of music performance until he encouraged her to explore her talents.  Kat’s clean voice and story-like lyrics are a surprising and rich addition to the band.

Ardent is a family, both of blood and circumstance.  The strength of the bonds between Josh, Justin, Dorian, and Kat allow them to challenge one another to grow and evolve, creating a sound that continues to deepen as they come to know themselves and each other through music.  Their debut EP “Ardent (a.k.a. Give it Shit)” will be available to stream and download soon.  Stay tuned to this page for updates regarding live performances.



You can see the nerves in me I can feel the love in you yet the stormy weather is at hand before us and I promise to protect us.

I promised to hold you close as we started and the man you wanted was stuck in time well parted. scared I was a drift in the city of Atlantis

walking with my back turned she still yerned for more. never to see me after I burn Davey jones has now evened the score

since I bet my soul for his heart Liars dice is not a game for the faint of heart and witts My soul is dead and gone but I still have a the heartache from the sea

Still the promise reigns The sea has my soul but she has my heart The place where the meet is a float and never to be promised in the same part

Broken yet Beautiful

finally making a stand with my heart in hand

mistakes to be made leaving it blue, black and red greys never the right shade lost and confused in your head yet your colours will be shown with a beautiful song written in lovin tone

I’ll sing this tune to you as your laying on my chest listening to the heart as it keeps the beat to our love song and the lyrics whisper in your ear your smile is the blueprint to the song the major notes to be heard all around

even though my heart is ripped and torn Im still longing to be beautiful but I’m stuck at being broken all I know is I want you to fix me singing your song is helping me heal

its all I want to see all I need is for to lay beside me


great book of poetry.

is there really a way out?

Is there really a way out?

Can the drink or drugs be there for you tomorrow?

Will I be here tomorrow?

Tell me where the dead lie and where the hell hounds feed on the bones Tell me where she will be laying with him After Im done with her flesh and kisses

Can you spell my name in the sand or will you throw the frist stone and catch what missies?

Cheating,Beating and heating the water so the frying pan isn’t to hot to jump into. from the fire to the frying pan I’ll stand and watch you drown.



to the bullet left in my right brain

since the wrong brain stopped for a hard drink.

is there really a way out or is it to the other side of hell?

great tune!!!


wish you were here

walk with me but leave the key, as long as your gone so will the door stay closed, locked and abandoned

I wish you were here, but now its clear. with no place to go and the streets lost their glow I’ll sit in here and waste my time She’s never on time, thats just perfectly fine.

I wish you were here, and held onto the fear with trembling hands and empty cans I’ve treated you wrong, I’ve treated you good and I’ll treat you with this graceful song.

follow me and let me show you where the vampires go to hide from the sun and you’ll see something that cant be undone Im begging you follow, watch and see

broken bottles on my feet
