Lyrics for Genevieve Artadi's song: Nowhere to Go

get out of my brain you've got to leave me alone, stop this echo
let me have the way it was before you came and cast your shadow
get out of my way you've got me seeing nothing, cycling, falling
shrinking into something i don’t wanna be i’m nowhere with nowhere to go

nowhere to go
nowhere to go
nowhere to go

get out of my head you’ve got to let me let go, let me let be
let me have the way it was before you came and cast your shadow

get out of my way u’ve got me seeing nothing, cycling, falling
shrinking into something i don’t wanna be i’m nowhere with nowhere to go

nowhere to go
nowhere to go
nowhere to go

Macyn Taylor - Candy Man

Macyn Taylor performing banjo and singing a cover of Taj Mahal's interpretation of Candy Man, originall written by Reverend Gary Davis

The Indies is pleased to present somethig a little bit different.

Just below is a nice one shot home video made approximately six years ago of a young musician named Macyn Taylor on her next door neighbors front porch. We like everything about it down to the back country feel of the porch and her bare feet keeping tempo. She performs the banjo with excellent picking style and sings a cover of the song titled Candy Man the way Taj Mahal released it in 1969. Enjoy!

Just below is Taj Mahal's interpretation of Candy Man for his 1969 album titled Giant Step/De Ole Folks at Home, which was a unique double album in that one of the vinyl's, Giant Step is electric, while the other vinyl record, De Ole Folks at Home, is acoustic.

The song was originally written and performed by Reverend Gary Davis as "Candyman". Davis, who was born on April 30, 1896 and died on May 5, 1972, was a gospel and blues singer who also played guitar, banjo and the harmonica. His unique picking style has influenced many other guitarists and banjo players.

Elise Trouw - Awake (Music Videos)

Elise Trouw music videos for Awake on The-Indies at TheIndies.Com, Photo by The Joelsons

The Indies is proud to present, Elise Trouw, a inspired emerging 18 year old drummer who has a lovely voice, with additional skills as an arranger, one girl band as a looper, multi-instrumentalist and technical/gear geek who proudly to offers up lists of what electronics and gear she used to make her recordings.

Nonchalant or laid back best describes her style. Her music is never rushed and maintains a certain stillness to it, such as in her most recent viral music video of a mashup of a FooFighters song titled Everlong meets Bobby Caldwell's song titled What You Won't Do, (listen/view here at TheQuietStorm.Com). That smooth groove mashup recording she made may just be what landed her debut network television appearance and two song performance on ABC-TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live on January 30th, 2018.

Outside of the viral cover song mashup referenced above, she is a very good original songwriter who musters up talented people to help her make well done audio recordings, music videos and filmed live performances.

The two videos featured below are different versions of the same song titled Awake. Awake is track #10 on her independent debut album titled Unraveling.

It is a tossup between which version is The-Indies favorite, so a flip of a quarter picked the minimalist piano/voice version first and the studio version of Awake and it's conceptual music video next. Enjoy!
