Fans can look forward to a fuller sound. Pop undertones mixed with old school vibes, and at certain points, a subtle cinematic feel. Energy and contemplation, an eclectic blend that creates movement and keeps things interesting.

about

Loi Jeannette Orlando, Florida

I enjoy chai tea lattes.
I like to snack on gummi bears.
Hot weather feels good to me.
I pray everyday.
Humor is the best.
I'm still learning how to live.

Track Name: Sawgrass & Sand
Verse 1:
I wasn’t looking for you
No love at first sight
I soaked up your sun
I drowned in your rays
I could dream all day
Though
I wasn’t dreaming of you.

Verse 2:
I was so young
My family moved us down
from the cold
So we met up in Apopka
Didn’t pay you much attention
for so long
I wasn’t dreaming of you

Chorus:
Sawgrass and sand
Oh how you took me by surprise
Flowery land
You stole my heart
we’ve been partners for this long
You keep me warm in the winter time
I could bask in this state
forever

Verse 3
I watched the clouds roll by
forming a giant boat
in the sky
it sailed me away
Into another day with you

Bridge:
I’m learning to love
Where I am with you
And all of the people
In the City Beautiful
Now the small things
make me smile
I think I’ll stay here for awhile
And now I’m dreaming of

Chorus [2x]:
Sawgrass and sand
Oh how you took me by surprise
Flowery land
You stole my heart
we’ve been partners for this long
You keep me warm in the winter time
I could bask in this state
forever
Track Name: One by One
VERSE 1:
Fragile memories
garnering power of
all the faintest of whispers
The ones that chill the bone
make us doubt to the core
of who we are
We were made to reign
and have dominion
oh how easily we stray
Each step forward is
lightening the load
The glimmer in our eyes
lets you know

CHORUS:
We will conquer
one by one by one,
by one by one by one
Though we
tremble step by step
holding steady
moving onward

VERSE 2:
No they don't know you
like the still small voice
Piercing through the lies
here and there
Telling of your brilliance
the champion inside
born to overcome
We were made to care
for one another
oh how easily we stray
Each step forward
is lightening the load
The glimmer in our eyes
lets you know

BRIDGE:
I’ll overthrow this tyrant in my mind, plotting my demise
But Love won’t let me go to waste this is not in vain

CHORUS [2x]:
We will conquer
one by one by one,
by one by one by one
Though we
tremble step by step
holding steady
moving onward
Track Name: Warrior
Verse 1:
The cost of love
who can define
All we can see
is the proof from our lives
The ones whom we help
To go on their way
The ones who can’t go
And that’s when we stay

Chorus:
Warrior
In the trenches of love
Warrior
In the battle of hope
Warrior
When the pain fills my lungs
I am a warrior of love

Verse 2 :
The power of love
who can define
All we can see
is the proof from our lives
Encouraging words
Investing in dreams
Building a passion to
Change the world we see

Chorus [2x]:
Warrior
In the trenches of love
Warrior
In the battle of hope
Warrior
When the pain fills my lungs
I am a warrior of love
Track Name: Baton
Verse 1:
It wasn’t quite a wand
So we called it a baton
It’s not magical
But there is mystery to behold
We’ve been passing it around
Here it comes and there it goes
A relay marathon of history

Verse 2:
And Life’s a mini series
Of the longest running story
We tune in and out, forgetting that it’s on
It’s a gift that we are chosen
That we die when we are golden

And true love’s the greatest thing
Not wrapped up with some string
In a pretty little package on your porch

Verse 3:
So many counterfeit batons
Handed to it’s many victims
Inciting war to justify the lies
But only Love’s worth fighting for
Not fought with ammunition

And you are worth it all
Since before the mighty fall
A footprint never fails to mark the shore

Verse 4:
You can look into the end
A kaleidoscope of colors
Shapes of generations shuffling all around
See the beauty in the picture
See the promise, hope and prospects
Forge a path into the mystery of our lives

Verse 5:
Like a bag of Amish friendship bread
Love will expand, can’t keep it for yourself
It’s better to share
And when you have to say goodbye
To a parent, to a child
To a grandma, who loved you more than life

Won’t you pick up that baton
Pass it to the ones primed for
The next lap in the human race

Verse 6:
The realization of the progress
You can find it in the eyes
Of a mother, of a father
Who can count
The many failures and achievements
Of their children as their own

They were handed a baton
Now with two they pass one on
And the labor that is love still remains
