Formerly known as The Medieval Leprechauns, Nine Directions was formed in San Francisco, California in the summer of 2013. Nine Directions features the ridiculously talented guitarist/vocalist Dominic (aka Mixmaster), drummer Callum (aka Haggis), brothers Luke and Owen (aka Los Luchadores) on keys and bass, respectively, Grace (aka G) on drums, Vivian and Piper (PJ) on vocals, dancer, drummer, and vocalist Luca, and Quinn (Quinnit to Win It) on jazz-inflected trumpet.

Their hit song "Life is Like a Rollercoaster" came about after a brainstorming session on the strange and fantastic. Luca contributed the rollercoaster image, which resulted in an avalanche of ideas on the meaning of life. We can't predict everything that will happen to us; all we can do is sit tight and enjoy the ride!


Life is like a rollercoaster
There's upside downs and inside outs
Enjoy the view and never look back
'Cuz you don't know what's at the end of the track

So sing out of your heart and find your tune
There are infinite stars all around the moon
All around the moon

Life is like a ferris wheel
Go 'round and 'round don't be afraid
Like bumper cars, sometimes collisions
Like pinball games at the arcade
