Rootfire World Premiere: Janelle Phillips “Grey Smoke” (feat. E.N Young)

This Friday, Janelle Phillips is set to drop her debut album, Lioness, on E.N Young’s Roots Musician Records. Young’s touch on the scene has been nothing short of infectious, and he continues to drive a roots progression by providing the perfect backdrop for upcoming singer/songwriter Phillips. “Grey Smoke” represents what I enjoy most about Young’s production: a melodic bassline, unforced lead vocals, tasteful dubs, sewn together by a hypnotic melodica and supportive harmonies.

♫ Lyrics:

<Verse>
Feel how our love it burns
I light you up yeah
Out in the moonlit night
I hear the ocean waves
Breeze carrying sounds of love
You drive me crazy,You drive me crazy

<Pre-Chorus>
Oh your soul sends me good vibrations
Want your body to give me sweet sensations
Oh your rhythm yes it got me swaying
You’ve got me dazed in a mood
A mood for loving you

<Chorus>
Grey Smoke
Yes its driftin up, when I’m blazing love with the fine man
One shot you fall in love, the things you’ll do baby I can
Take you to another place, make you feel a different way
Yeah, Yeah…
Grey Smoke

<Verse>
Go with it sail and flow with it roll with it
Shake off your stress feel whole with it flow with it
Baby you stir me up, you drive me crazy, you drive me crazy

Oh your soul sends me good vibrations
Want your body to give me sweet sensations
Oh your rhythm yes it got me swaying
You’ve got me dazed in a mood
A mood for loving you
