about

'A Long Way From Heaven…' is a 6-track mini album highlighting the work of Wily Bo Walker and Kareña K. Their voices, described as barbed wire and angels, bourbon and roses, work so well together and, in these original songs, showcase their talent and artistry.

Wily Bo was nominated for Best Male Vocalist in the 2014 British Blues Awards and his solo single 'I Want To Know', which features Kareña on backing vocals, was also considered for a Grammy nomination for 2015 in the 'Traditional R&B' category.

This album continues their work in producing timeless blues-infused music for all.

From the ultra-cool and quirky acapella of 'Love Will Find A Way', the enormous ballad production of 'Long Way To Heaven', the film noir swing of 'Rendezvous des Cheminots' through various styles of blues in 'Angels in the Night', 'Did I Forget' and 'Light at the End of the Tunnel' this album is a set of tracks that can only be described as 'classic'.

Track Name: Long Way To Heaven
THIS IS THE STORY OF JOHNNY AND LOUISE
DOWN ON KENNEDY BOULEVARD
COULD BE THE STORY OF YOU AND ME
LOSING TRACK OF WHO WE BOTH ARE
SOME HOLD ON TO DREAMS
SOME HOLD ON TO THE FEAR
THEY’RE JUST GROWING OLD…
LOUISE TURNS TO JOHNNY
PUTS HER HAND INTO HIS
WITH A SMILE THAT ONLY HE KNOWS

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

JOHNNY SAYS “LOUISE, I DON’T KNOW
HOW FAR WE’VE COME DOWN THIS ROAD
THIS TOWN DON’T HOLD THE SAME FASCINATION
I DON’T KNOW WHICH WAY WE SHOULD GO”
HE LOOKS ACROSS
TO THE SUN SINKING DOWN
IN THE SHIMMERING, SHIMMERING GOLD
‘I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY CALL A PLACE YOU CAN’T RETURN FROM…
LORD…
I DON’T WANT TO KNOW’

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

TIRED AND ALONE
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
JOHNNY AND SWEET, SWEET LOUISE…
PULLED THEIR HOPES
OUT OF THE OCEAN
HAND IN HAND IN THE SWEET SUMMER BREEZE

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

WHEN YOU’RE DOWN UPON YOUR LUCK
YOU’RE LUCKY TO HAVE SOMEONE YOU CAN HOLD
A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
A LONG WAY HOME…

Track Name: Love Will Find A Way
I COULD BE RIGHT
I GUESS I COULD BE WRONG
A CHANGE OF HEART
CAN COME AROUND WITH JUST A SONG
SO TURN THAT FROWN UPSIDE DOWN
IT’S SUCH A LOVELY DAY
AND IF THIS WORLD GETS YOU DOWN
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY

HERE COMES TROUBLE
RED SKIES OVER DAWN
HALF MOON RISIN’
ON A SAN FRANCISCO LAWN
TURN MY WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
IT’S SUCH A LOVELY DAY
AND IF THIS WORLD GETS YOU DOWN
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY

I’M IN BLUE HEAVEN
WITH A POCKETFUL OF DIMES
CALIFORNIA SUNSHINE
GONNA DO THAT EVERYTIME
TURN THAT WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
IT’S SUCH A LOVELY DAY
THIS BIG OL’ WORLD WON’T GET YOU DOWN
COS LOVE WILL FIND A WAY

I COULD BE RIGHT
I GUESS I COULD BE WRONG
BUT I HEARD LOUIS
SING ABOUT IT IN A SONG
SO TURN THAT FROWN UPSIDE DOWN
IT’S SUCH A LOVELY DAY
AND IF THIS WORLD GETS YOU DOWN
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY…

Track Name: Angels in the Night
SAY GOODBYE TO DONNIE G
AND WILY BO…
THEY’RE LEAVING IN THE MORNING
FOR A LIFE OF ROCK AND ROLL
SAY THEY'RE TIRED OF ALL THIS HANGING AROUND
YOU KNOW THAT TIME
AIN'T GOOD FOR NOTHING
IN THIS GODFORSAKEN TOWN…

SUSIE CHILD ITS A PERFECT DISGRACE
YOU'VE GOT A PERFECT DISGUISE
UNDER THAT PERFECT FACE
DRIFTING AROUND BETWEEN THE STARS AND THE MOON AND THE SUN
YOU'VE GOT TO USE WHAT TIME HAS GIVEN WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG

WHEN YOU'RE STILL YOUNG…

WELL I WAS TALKING WITH MY FRIENDS
JUST THE OTHER DAY
TRYING TO FIND ME SOME SWEET PEACE OF MIND

SOMEHOW SOMEWHERE WE ALL GO OUR SEPARATE WAYS
SEARCHING FOR OUR ANGELS…

ANGELS IN THE NIGHT

ON A DIRT TRACK ROAD
ON A HOT SUMMERS DAY
I WAS STARING THROUGH THE SHIMMER
AT THOSE STEELYARD GRAVES
COMES A TIME
WE'VE ALL GOT TO GET AWAY…
YOU MIGHT LOSE
WHAT TIME HAS GIVEN YOU ONE DAY

SO LONG BABY
BABY SO LONG
WHAT YOU’VE GOT ONE MOMENT
AH YOU KNOW THE NEXT ITS GONE
KEEP IT SHINING HONEY
SHINING LIKE A LIGHT
SEARCHING FOR THOSE ANGELS…

ANGELS IN THE NIGHT…

Track Name: Did I Forget (To Tell You I Love You)
DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
I GUESS MY DRINKIN’ GOT IN THE WAY
AND ALL THE STARS SHINING ABOVE YOU
COULDN’T KEEP ME FROM LOSING MY WAY
NOW I’M ALL BROKEN DOWN
ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN
I THOUGHT THAT WE WOULD HAVE ONE MORE DAY
DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
I GUESS THE ANGELS WILL HEAR ME TODAY

DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I NEEDED YOU
I NEEDED YOU MORE WITH EACH PASSING DAY
DID I FORGET TO SAY I BELIEVE IN YOU
BELIEVE IN YOU MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY
WELL I’VE ALREADY GONE
AND WROTE IT DOWN IN A SONG
I HOPE THAT YOU WILL HEAR IT ONE DAY
DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
WELL THOSE WERE THE WORDS THAT I WANTED TO SAY

NOW I’M ALL BROKEN DOWN
ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN
I THOUGHT THAT WE WOULD HAVE ONE MORE DAY
DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU…
WELL THOSE WERE THE WORDS THAT I WANTED TO SAY

GOODBYE BABY
IT’S BEEN A LONG, LONG, LONG LONELY DAY
SO LONG DARLING
MAYBE, MAYBE ONE DAY…
GOODBYE BABY
ALL THE ANGELS WILL HEAR ME TODAY…
SO LONG DARLING…
GOODBYE BABE…

Track Name: Rendezvous des Cheminots (feat. The Danny Flam Big Band)
MIDNIGHT GAMES THAT’S THE WAY IT GOES
RENDEZ-VOUS DES CHEMINOTS
ANTOINE TURNS HE TAP MY SHOULDER AND SIGHS
SAYS SHE’S WALKING DOWN THE STREET
IN SOME CRAZY JIVE
I DRANK A COLD, SOUR COFFEE WROTE YOU OFF AS A LOSS
I CAN’T BELIEVE THE LIES
HOW YOU DOUBLE-CROSSED ME
YOU DREW THE HEAT
NOW HONEY, I MASTERED COOL
ONE STEP AHEAD IN THIS CITY OF FOOLS

I WROTE HER OFF BACK IN SEVENTY-THREE
HEARD THAT SHE DIED THAT WAY
IN SOME CRIME I NEVER SEE
PUT A COIN IN THAT JUKEBOX
LET THAT RECORD SPIN
IT DRIVE ME CRAZY JUST TO HEAR HER SING
AND THE SOUND OF MISS HOLIDAY’S VOICE IN MY HEAD
“ONE OF THESE DAYS YOU’RE GONNA MISS ME – I’M DEAD”
CALL ME SOLO
YOU CAN CALL ME ALONE
WHY DON’T YOU CALL ME TOMORROW ON THE TELEPHONE

LOVER BEWARE YOU KNOW HOW LOVE IS BLIND
YOU LIE TO YOURSELF
JUST TO KEEP IT KIND
THIS EMPTY SPACE AMID THESE FLASHING SIGNS
SAYS THAT WE’LL MAYBE MEET AGAIN
BUT HONEY NOT THIS TIME…
I DRANK A COLD, SOUR COFFEE WROTE YOU OFF AS A LOSS
I CAN’T BELIEVE THE LIES
HOW YOU DOUBLE-CROSSED ME
YOU DREW THE HEAT
HONEY, I MASTERED COOL
ONE STEP AHEAD IN THIS CITY OF FOOLS

MIDNIGHT GAMES THAT’S THE WAY IT GOES
A RENDEZ-VOUS DOWN AT DES CHEMINOTS
ANTOINE TURN
HE SHRUG HIS SHOULDER AND SIGH
I CLOSE THE DOOR AND TURN MY COLLAR
TO THE COLD MOONLIGHT
AND THE SOUND OF MISS HOLIDAY’S VOICE IN MY HEAD
“ONE OF THESE DAYS YOU’RE GONNA MISS ME – I’M DEAD”
CALL ME SOLO
YOU CAN CALL ME ALONE
WHY DON’T YOU CALL ME TOMORROW ON THAT TELEPHONE

Track Name: Light at the End of the Tunnel (Extended Album Mix)
IT TOOK ME YEARS
AT THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE
WHEN YOU WALKED ON OUT
TEN GODDAMN YEARS
AT THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE
WHEN YOU WALKED ON OUT
YOU DIDN’T KNOW WHAT YOU WERE DOING
DIDN’T KNOW YOU WOULD BE SCREWING
WITH MY MIND
YOU’RE SO UNKIND
LED ME RIGHT BACK DOWN THAT ROAD
THAT ROAD SO LONG CLOSED
AND THE LIGHT
AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
JUST WENT OUT

WELL I THOUGHT YOU KNEW ME
BUT YOU WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS
TO ME, IF YOU DID
I THOUGHT YOU KNEW ME BUT
YOU WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS TO ME
LORD IF YOU DID
I PUT ALL THAT STUFF BEHIND ME
NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD FIND ME
BUT IT’S HERE
OH LORD IT’S HERE
THAT OLD FEELING’S BACK AGAIN
WITH A WHOLE NEW CROWD OF FRIENDS
AND THE LIGHT
AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
JUST WENT OUT
IT JUST WENT OUT…

WELL I THOUGHT YOU WERE MY FRIEND
BUT ALL GOOD THINGS HAVE TO END
THEN THEY DID
YES THEY DID
I DON’T WANT YOUR SYMPATHY
I’M JUST GETTING BACK TO ME
AND THE LIGHT
AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
JUST WENT OUT

IT JUST WENT OUT…
