about

Gina Loes Vancouver, British Columbia

The youthful beckon of her ukulele, the rustlings of a slow and soulful clarinet paired with the dance of an old pair of tap shoes - that is the music of Gina Loes. She is most well known for her work as lead singer and guitarist of Vancouver chamber-pop sextet, The Ruffled Feathers. After a decade of studying, performing, and playing with other Vancouver indie bands, Gina created Get a Job June. ... more

Track Name: Get a Job June
Those who know me best
Say I get to hard on myself,
Never satisfied.
Trouble was I could never decide

What I liked best that also made money.
This one always had too many hobbies.
What's the grand design?
Better get in line.

Things I used to love
Are now a waste of time.
I can't do it all
if I want to do anything well

From what I liked best that also made money.
This one always had too many hobbies.
Where ya going next?
Try to change the subject.

When I'm down on my luck
Try to think positive thoughts.
What's your next big move?
Going in to get a job June.
Track Name: Pretend
If I was right where you are
I wouldn't have to go outside.
I wouldn't have to close my eyes
To pretend that I'm with you.

If I could go back in time
I could have seen that down the road
I was going to want someone to hold me close
Tell me everything would be alright.

I didn't mean to start a fight.
Oh, go on go on, just go to let go.
To see if I could live without you wherever you go.
I just pretend that I'm with you.

I didn't mean to step out of line.
Just got to learn to walk the tightrope, go slow.
To see if I could live without you wherever you go,
I just pretend that I'm with you
Track Name: Anyone Else
Last time I saw you
Your hands fell around my hips.
I came by to see you and see
What we were going to do about all of this.

And you said, “If you're going to kiss me, do it now.”
So I took my two steps closer and showed you how I kiss.

When I've missed you like a dream
And how I can't feel anything
When I'm with anyone else,
When I'm with anyone else.
And though I try to realize other lovers,
You're the one that's on my mind.
Every time.

The last time I called you
I left a message on your phone.
Maybe you're busy or maybe you're not alone.

Just want to make sure you're alive
And that I can still say hello
But if you're just scared I understand why and it's okay.
I'll try you again next Sunday.

And you said, if you're going to kiss me do it now.
So I took my two steps closer and showed you how I kiss.

When I've missed you like a dream
And how I can't feel anything
When I'm with anyone else,
When I'm with anyone else.
And though I try to realize other lovers
To try and get you out of my mind.
It’s wasting time.
Track Name: Just Being Here
One of a kind
hen all I saw was darkness.
Burned by the blinding light,
Concrete horizons.

I always survived
The pull from the waves.
I'm up and I'm down.
It's just for the moment.

I can't make it right.
It's just like the last.
I'm getting good at

Just being here.
Just being here.

First time in years
I'm free from all ties.
My arms open wide,
the river comes rushing.

When I awoke
I was up to my knees.
A pile of leaves
Winter is coming.

I can't make it right.
It's just like the last.
I'm getting good at

Just being here.
Just being here.
