Josh Woodley I just absolutely love Joanna Teter's voice. It's so deep, husky and rich. Very similar to Jill Scott and just as sexy. Beautiful. Great musicians on this album as well, recent Berkley graduates I believe. Sound like Moonchild. Favorite track: The Makings of You.

Keith Corbin Great album, amazing production, and Joanna Teters kills it. Saw them as the opening band on Halloween and they stole the show. Favorite track: Epiphany.

Sattalude #1 01:17
Reach Out 03:37
Why don't you reach out to me You're like an island out at sea I'm left waiting on the shore As shallow as a stream As far as I can see I took what I need, there's nothing left for me What kind of man are you Always up and leaving when we're through I want you all the time, but I'm lost Looked in the window of your heart But the window pane was fogged Now there's nothing left to do but forget you Reach out to me I need you Reach out to me Where can you be found, when I reach out to you Breathe it out, take it in Move with me, watch me win Throw away the lock and key Reach out, out to me
Better 02:10
Everyday I wake up to your voicemail, a little in my ear to start my day off right Sunlight is streaming through my window Little stretch up and yawn and I know it's true It's another day to feel you in all I do Don't you know, oh, don't know you I'm better Better when I'm with you Every night I fall into my pillow Look over to the spot where I wish you'd stay Moonlight is streaming through my window Gently close my eyes and I know it's true Another day has passed I still feel you
Oh Lord 05:02
Oh lord, I've got one thing to confess I've been bad but it felt good to kick back and undress It felt right to do wrong and I don't feel good about it Help me, good lord... I still can't tell what to think about it No one has seen a glimpse of us I tried real hard to pretend that it was nothing But he wasn't like the others I made up some things, I know it was my bad Let's just keep chasing one another Let's get it on on the down low, real slow I don't care What they might say about us I don't know half the things they say about us I want to believe you so bad but I doubt it Don't tell me things that I don't wanna hear Delete the pictures on my phone and hide it I crossed the line, got stuck in time Whose fault, who knows, time now it unfolds Forget the flowers, forget the promise Oh help me, good lord I don't know half the things they say about us I want to believe you so bad but I doubt it Don't tell me things that I don't wanna hear Delete the pictures on my phone and hide it My fault indeed, time heals completely, Help me, good lord...
What's inside a face can't hide My eyes can see through you See you, feel you, as you come across this way Love is not enough for you So why should I believe you If I see you waste the day away You used me, confused me, left me to dry I know you untrue boy I can see through what you do You used me, refused me I spent the night crying Can't take no more so I'm done with you Same old tricks, a different fix What a plan you had to confuse me Use me, abuse me, like it's all okay Dreamt that we could see this through But somewhere I lost my point of view Said goodbye when you walked out of my life
Add little sugar, honey suckle lamb And a great big expression of happiness Boy, you could not miss with a dozen roses Such would astound you The joy of children laughing around you These are the makings of you It is true, the makings of you, oh The righteous way to go Anyone would know I believe I thought I told you so You're second to none Love of all mankind should reflect some sign Of these words I'm trying to recite They're close, but not quite Almost impossible to do Reciting the makings of you
By Your Side 03:41
What more can I say, I've almost said it all Whether you're far away or if you're right here with me I'm gonna give you my heart I know that you're the one, I see it in your eyes You've got the kind of love that I know is hard to find but in time we'll make it It's all alright, I didn't understand what you meant When you said I love you But now I know that what we have We must take care I'm by your side—tonight—your light—it's right And when I hear your voice Sounds like heaven to me Truly I never thought it would happen to me But your love has my soul I'm by your side (baby I'm by your side) Tonight (let me make you feel alright) Your light (love when it's shining bright)
Sattalude #2 01:20
I'll be back someday Know nothing in the world could replace the love you gave How can I repay So hard to be away for you I'd walk for miles and miles to finally say, I'll be around to stay
Past Lives 02:25
Baby, lately, you've been trying to change me Turn my back and I walk away cause I'm the one that's crazy Used to be so easy, fell into your pleasing Blind to what you made of me, now I see it clearly Part of you, a part of me, tangled story of we It's gotten hard to see in the dark So tired of tripping
Epiphany 03:29
Come float away with me We'll fly beyond the sea For all eternity, you'll see Travel to a world of peace What a dream Land void of war and greed So serene Come float away with me, let's hop this galaxy Beyond the stars we'll seek bliss
