about

Rhea San Diego, California

Rhea Makiaris's dulcet sounds transport her listeners back to a golden age of music, when all a performer needed to entertain was a guitar and an exceptional voice.
She is a self-taught riot of a minstrel with a natural ear for music, knack for picking up instruments, and a honey voice.

Track Name: Rich Man
Lyrics:

It seems love never treats me right, I'm tired of a hopeless fight.
I've been used and mistreated, and I'll admit: I'm defeated.
Had enough, I'm through. Tell ya what I'm gonna do...

I'll find a rich man, a rich man! It's time to work on an alternate plan.
I'm done with the love scene, you know what I mean?
Cuz I have no heart, since he took my heart and he ran...
I'll find a rich man.

The next time when I'm feeling down I'll buy a diamond! Or a whole damn town!
I won't be sad partying on my yacht, and if I am I'll think about all I've got.
Love's so overrated, so what if I'm jaded?

I'll have a rich man, a rich man! It's time to work on a retirement plan.
Oh, I'm done with the love scene, and going for green
Cuz I have no heart, since he took my heart and he ran...
I'll find a rich man.

If you're a genius, or a fireman, drop dead gorgeous! With a stunning tan! You won't catch my eye, you don't stand a chance.
Unless you're sporting a hefty inheritance.
I know I seem cold, but I'm warmed by the thought of gold... and a fabulous rich man.

I'm done with the love scene, I'm shallow and mean
Cuz I have no heart, since he took my heart and he ran...oh I'll....find me a rich man!!!!!
Track Name: Fade Away
I know it's crazy, nothing's changed; the way I feel, still the same.
After all this time I thought you'd go; you're not welcome here, you know.

But you refuse to leave, you're always here with me: a memory.
Why won't you fade away, I wish you'd fade away.

I'd like to run, travel so far, but no matter where I roam there you are.
How can I erase? or forget? You're not with me now, and yet

You, you linger on, and I'll never move on until you're gone
Why won't you fade away, oh I wish you'd fade away

Tell me, tell me what's it gonna take? To be rid of him to be free I can't wait, ohhh

You, you just won't leave, always haunting me: your memoryWhy won't you fade away, I wish you'd fade away

Supposed to be that time will heal, but you stay.
No matter what I do or say you just won't fade
and I want you still, I can't wait until the day when you fade away...
Track Name: That's What She Said
This morning I cruised on into a parking lot
In search of the closest available spot
There it was...in the first row
On the passenger side
But my friend said, "No way, man, your truck is too wide...
It's too big you'll never fit!"

My neighbor was renovating his house next door,
All that hammering, racket and noise, couldn't take any more
So I went over to persuade him, as polite as I could be
"Look I know you're home improving, but could you take it easy?...
You're banging way too hard!"

Ohhhh that's what SHE said! Hey now, Hey now, that's what she said

An audition came up for the lead in a Broadway show
The pressure was on, the director gave me the go
I knew I had to impress him, I could feel my heart sink
Was prepared but really nervous, and all I could think
"This is huge, can't blow it now!"

Ohhhh that's what SHE said! Hey now, Hey now, that's what she said

In the dark at the front door I fumbled through my keys
So many attached to this ring you wouldn't believe
I did my best to maneuver but it was out of my control
The first key I attempted slid in the wrong hole
It's stuck, it won't come out!

Ohhhh that's what SHE said! Hey now, Hey now, that's what she said
Ohhhh that's what SHE said! Hey now, Hey now, that's what she said
Track Name: Let Me Love You
You weren't in my plan, ohh the perfect man
But now I'm your biggest fan
Love at second sight, I fell for you that night
But now you put up a fight

Stop. Oh, Stop. Oh, STOP....why don't you?

Let me, let me love you
Honey you won't regret it
C'mon over here and get it
Cuz I could be so good for you Mmmmmm
You should, let me

I know you felt it, too
But you've got every damn excuse ohhh
Why you put up a fight? oh, why?

Stop. Oh, Stop. Oh, STOP....why don't you?

Let me, let me love you
Honey you won't regret it
C'mon over here and get it
Cuz I could be so good for you Mmmmmm
You should, let me

Cuz I could LOVE you, mmmmm
You should, you should LET ME!
Track Name: New Orleans Bound
You told me from the start, unavailable was your heart
But your body for a time, was mine
Between us lie many miles, my dear it's been awhile
How I long for you, could we rendezvous? Will you....

Meet me in New Orleans?
I'm going down
and the things I'll do...to you
When no one is around
Ohhhh meet me there, we'll finally share
My favorite town

Music and dance, warm nights make romance
I can't wait to see your face, in this intoxicating place
We'll wander down Frenchmen Street
Where brass bands keep the beat
Your hands upon my hips, lean down and sneak a kiss! Will you come?..

Meet me in New Orleans?
I'm going down
And the things I'll do, I'll do to you
When no one else is around
Ohhhh meet me there, we'll finally share our favorite town

Ohhhhh, c'mon lets go I'll meet you there
I'm New Orleans bound!
