Out of San Diego, CA comes another female vocalist making her way to the stage to share her message of peace and unity. Her name is Janelle Phillips and her new Lioness EP will drop on October 2nd via E.N Young‘s Roots Musician Records. E.N Young produced the album out of his Imperial Sound Recording Studio, just north of the border in southern of CA.
Janelle shares with The Pier that she wants: “the people that come across this song to feel a rising, an awakening and allow them to feel part of the song, a sense of Unity. Also, to accept visions, culture, and religion – whatever God you believe in, we all come from the same one.”
Janell continues: “There are so many people in this world, from generation to generation, being raised with stories, ways to praise, and what to believe in. To me, it’s such an amazing beauty; I respect every culture and religion that are uplifting themselves and showing respect to the Most High. He is inside all of us, and these differences in the way people describe him are their own ways of being able to describe his presence. I want everyone as a people, to stand up for others and for peace. Ambient music brings meditation, and the feeling in this song is magical.”
Of the six songs on Janelle’s new EP, there is a stand-out guest appearance in singer-songwriter Trevor Hall. He appears on the song “Lifted”. Janelle has been a longtime fan of Trevor and we even found a video on Youtube of her covering Trevor Hall’s “Te Amo” that you can view below.
Discussing Trevor Hall, Janelle explains that: “Having Trevor Hall, one of my biggest inspirations in music as well as with regards to my spiritual awakening, in this work of art is so touching and moving. It’s so powerful and allows me to really feel the Most High, as we remember those who have passed fighting for peace, and their heart eliminating the negative things in the world like discrimination, prejudice, racism, hatred, dictatorship, enslavement, murders, domestic violence, child abuse, and all the other things that do not bring us together to help one another.”
