From start to finish this album is a feast of musical endorphins. Performed with a twinkle and decades of soulful expertise, this entire production is full of heart, soul, and unmitigated fun, skillfully woven with solid inspiration.  This is universally uplifting & inclusive secular progressive gospel music for all temperaments.

Diversely satisfying styles include 30’s jazz, a stirring choral anthem, a heartful ballad, several Randy Newman-esque tongue-in-cheek romps, unapologetic folk, and tasty rock & roll you can dance, grin, and sing along to.

Turnng Tide

Words & Music by Jan Garrett & JD Martin

There is a promise....I feel it coming
In the rising of a turning tide
Where every burden shall be lifted
On the surge of faith inside
And every spirit will feel the blessing
Every soul will be satisfied
We are rising higher higher
In this turning tide
We are rising, rising,
In this turning tide
We are rising, rising,
In this turning tide

I hear the music....in the madness
I see the vision of a brighter day
I draw compassion....from our sadness, and fuel the
Fire for a better way
I put my money.....where my mouth is
I get on board the freedom ride
We are rising higher higher
In this turning tide
We are rising, rising,
In this turning tide
We are rising, rising,
In this turning tide

And so the promise becomes the present
And the future is opening wide
We are guided, we are gifted
We are lifted up inside
And nobody....can do it for us, we sing our
Own Halleluia Chorus
We are rising higher higher
In this turning tide
We are rising higher higher
In this turning tide

Listen

Words & Music by JD Martin & Tom Kimmel

The world runs fast, the spirit slow
To where we think we need to go
When we move into passing gear
The song of love is hard to hear
Till everything¹s so loud that we¹re
Alone with what we¹re missing
Listen.....Listen.....

Somewhere beneath this sea of noise
We hear the angel¹s whispered voice
The song is there, the words are clear
And all we need is still right here
Listen.....Listen.....

The harmony of wings in flight
The rising of the wind at night
The breaking of the ocean waves
Will call the heart that¹s half awake
The sound of every breath we take
Can free a soul from prison
Listen.....

.....for all we¹re worth
The door to heaven is here on earth
The shout for joy, the softest prayer
The sound of love is in the air

Listen.....Listen.....
Somewhere beneath this sea of noise
We hear the angel¹s whispered voice
The song is there, the words are clear
And all we need is still right here
Listen.....Listen.....

Whoo

Words & Music by Jan Garrett

Who is always easy
Who loves feeling free
Who¹s behind the breeze and the wind in the trees
And who is breathing me
Who rides with me on this journey
Who is my shelter in the storm
Who is my heart¹s true companion
Who is the fire that keeps me warm

And we¹re all together, all together now
And it¹s good to be home
And we¹re all together, all together now
And it¹s good to be home

Who is the first to feel forgiveness
Who loves the benefit of the doubt
Who finds the finest....milk of human kindness
And passes the miracles around
Who hears the music in the madness
When no rhyme or reason can be found
Who holds the harmony together
Who is the song inside the sound

Who do I spend my whole life loving
Who is looking through these eyes
Who is my nearest and dearest
Who¹s my most familiar surprise
And who began my beginnings
And who rides with me through the end
Who brings me laughter ever after
Who¹s my truest friend

Open the Door

Words & Music by Jan Garrett & JD Martin

You been up against the wall, open the door
You¹re trying not to fall, open the door
There¹s a wonderful world wondering where you been
Quit knock knock knocking and walk on in
You can have it all, open the door

You're wondering what to do, open the door  (Sometimes it feels like)
You don¹t have a clue, open the door
It¹s a beautiful life, but you got ta begin
Quit ringing the bell and just walk on in
This time it¹s up to you, open the door

You can lift the latch, turn the key
Don¹t need no ticket, you can get in free
If it feels like home and you¹re ready for more, you can
Take it easy, Baby, and open the door

The party¹s going strong, open the door
It¹s been here all along, open the door
All your new best friends are waiting for you, why doncha
Open the door and just-a walk on through
You¹re right where you belong, open the door

You been up against the wall, open the door
You¹re trying not to fall, open the door
There¹s a wonderful world wondering where you been
Quit knock knock knocking and walk on in
You can have it all, feel like you're ten feet tall
You can have a ball, open the door

It Ain't Over Yet

Words & Music by Jan Garrett & JD Martin

You just don¹t know, ya never know
How far your heart might get
No, you just don¹t know, ya never know
'Cause it ain¹t over yet
Oh you just don¹t know, ya never know
How your love grows when you let it
You just don¹t know, ya never know
'Cause it ain¹t over yet

Now, take for example, the honeybee and the rose
That kiss is more than a random sample, Œcause I think the rose knows
It¹s an evolutionary answer, a romance that comes to beeee
The complicated pollinated sweetness in your tea

It¹s three strikes, you¹re out.  That¹s what the umpire said
And the baseball blues is bad news, but you can turn in around instead
'Cause, if strikes is up your alley, strike it rich on the way to fame
And bowl your audience over just by changing the name of the game

What goes around comes around, as far as I can see, and that¹s why
We all feel familiar in this spiral galaxy
So, Namaste, come out and play, and everybody wins
And we meet ourselves coming and going when the Saints go marching in

See My Way Through

Words & Music by Jan Garrett

Woke up this morning singing
Didn¹t even know the tune
The sweet dreams I¹d been dreaming
Were still smiling around the room
Yesterday¹s ugly problems
Got a face lift in the night
And a coupla bright solutions
Showed up in the morning light

(And I could) See my way through....See my way through
Goodness, Gracious, Halleluia, I can....See my way through

Now, some days are diamonds
Some days are dirt
But I can plant my seeds in that fertile soil
And the magic just might work
And so I Loosen up the boundaries, and I
Lighten up my load
I expect the best and I bless the rest, and I
Get on down the road

If I should get down-hearted
And can¹t find my way home
I fling my dreams out in front-a me
Cause they know where they¹re goin¹
And I can see Œem shining
They cheer me all the way
And they pull me into my future
Just as easy as a summer¹s day

No Complaints Whatsoever

Words & Music by Jan Garrett & JD Martin

I got no complaints whatsoever
I got no complaints whatsoever
I got no complaints whatsoever
And a new day is dawning in my soul

I got no complaints whatsoever
I got no complaints whatsoever
I got no complaints whatsoever
And a new day is dawning in my soul
A new day is dawning in my soul

Believe it or not, I ain't lying
I'm not trying to cover up the facts
I been down, been betrayed, I been....broken open
Till I gave up the struggle at last
And I can see all the ways that I've been gifted
And all the wisdom that has brought me to this place
Through the twists & the turns, I have finally come to learn
To trust this amazing kind of grace

CHORUS

The high road is surprisingly easy
Forgiveness shows up without a fight
Through the ups & the downs I see beauty all around
‘Cause I’d rather be grateful than right
So I get to play with what I'm given
And find such unexpected harmonies
Weaving the light with the deep dark shadow
Till the music sets me freeee

CHORUS

I got no regrets (I got no regrets)
I’m seriously blessed (I’m seriously blessed)
I got peace of mind (I got peace of mind)
All the time (All the time)

CHORUS

I got no regrets, I’m seriously blessed
And a new day is dawning in my soul

Words & Music by Jan Garrett

The eyes are the windows of the soul.....so I've been told
The magical curtains that lead to where the certainest secrets unfold
I don't know much about secrets, but I know when I look in your eyes
The world falls away, and I'm falling in love
Free-fall at last, endlessly vast, this mystery has to be true
Because it's you.

I sit behind my windows, all by myself, alone on a shelf
Wishing I could touch you, loving you so much, you are infinite wealth
I don't know much about money, but I know when I spend time with you
The riches inside are endlessly wide, and as I come nearer
It seems to be a mirror. I'm looking into my own soul...
I lose control

Let me be a window for your love to come through, totally new
Shine me like a crystal, slicker than a whistle, let me be true
I don't know much about windows, but I know that I want to be yours
Just perfectly clear, transparently near, make my very essense
Airy luminescence, and let there be nothing between...
Clean me through and through, let me live in you
Till the window is open at last.
Then your subtlest breeze can come and go as you please
And your love light come shimmering through
Because I love you ...Yes I do, truly do, truly I do love you.

Say That

Words & Music by Jan Garrett & JD Martin

If you don’t know how to say what you’re feeling
But you feel like you got something to say
When the music....all sounds familiar
But you never really learned how to play

If you feel like the next step is waiting
But you don’t exactly know where to go
When you’re not quite sure of the meaning
But you’re certain that you’re willing to know
Take a chance and SAY THAT

If you’re used to flying under the radar
‘Cause you’re not so sure you wanna be seen
You’ve got a much bigger life to step into
But it’s still hiding out in your dreams

When you know that your faith can move mountains
But you’re scared you don’t know how to begin
You can call up....your Higher Power
And ask for courage....to come on in
Take a chance and SAY THAT

When you’re sure.....That your heart
Could light up the silence in the dark
Don’t hold back, SAY THAT

Now, the odds are stacked in our favor
We’ve got a natural inclination to thrive
When we show up, we've got to get braver
And we can’t wait for the band to arrive

When you wanna crack your heart wide open
And the words don’t seem to open the door
But you’re secretly in love with the feeling
And you’re positively jumping for joy
Take a chance and SAY THAT
