Slick Shoes was a pop punk band with Christian origins from Antelope Valley, California. Their name comes from the hit 1985 movie, The Goonies, 'slick shoes' being one of the character Data's many gadgets. The band formed in 1994 and made their first release as a self-titled EP in 1997. They released 5 full length CDs, 4 of them on Seattle based Tooth and Nail Records. They also released an EP, a split with Autopilot Off and a greatest hits CD entitled The Biggest & The Best, featuring 3 previously unreleased songs. Slick Shoes' style could be described as fast and melodic, occasionally with a rough-edged hardcore punk/melodic hardcore sound.Read More...
The band had gone through numerous line-up changes over the years, but singer Ryan Kepke and Joe Nixon (drums) performed on every release, while Jeremiah Brown (bass) played on all except their final album, Far From Nowhere. This was their first release without Tooth and Nail Records, which they left, not for religious reasons, but merely because their contract had finished and the band felt the need for a change. Far From Nowhere was released on SideOneDummy Records in the summer of 2003.

- LyricsI'm so addicted to the loving that you're feeding to me
Can't do without it, this feeling's got me weak in the knees
Body's in withdrawal every time you take it away
Can't you hear me callin'? Begging you to come out and play?
So baby, come to me
- LyricsTime stands still the air begins to swell.
The broken hearted shadow of someone who feels left out of life.
Seems like all the stars have fallen from the sky.
All that's left is the grinning moon that's laughing at your cries.
Are you burning up down inside?
- LyricsAll day long I've sat here
For I cannot find my way
Left or right I'll still go on
But will I see your face?
But now is the time, we will survive
- LyricsKicked in the head again today why do I have to be like this
I've wasted so much time just wondering what it is and if it's right
Why does it have to hurt so much to fight
With failure chasing at my feet I will not be afraid to dream
My hopes been loss so many times I think I'm gonna lose my mind
- LyricsLooking into your eyes
I see all I want to be
And I don't want it to end
If I could only put to words the way
I see you
