The time has come again to introduce the world to someone new. Someone who isn't afraid to push the boundaries of music. Someone who dares to be different. Someone who whether you love or hate, you definitely will not forget. That someone, is Dogwood Speaks. As the face of music has changed over the years, so too has the sound. The future of music is here. No limitations. No boundaries. No rules. With a past laden in hip hop roots, Dogwood Speaks journeys beyond genres with a soulfully provocative sound. While leaving a budding rap career behind, Dogwood has taken with him the essence of his hip hop upbringing and meshed it with the spirit of the true western soul. "Cadillac Land" is his offering; a heartfelt album filled with tales of passion, triumph, pain, and glory. Together with Noble House producer extraordinaire Gennessee, Dogwood has honed and crafted his own signature style. Reminiscent of when Otis Redding was sittin' on the dock of the bay, Dogwood tells the story of the common man's quest to overcome the daily struggles of the world today while bringing to life a candid reality through song. The first two singles "Fly Away" and "Where U From", which have already been gaining notoriety through local airwaves and fans alike,is the first step in the experience that is...Dogwood Speaks. Cadillac Land. Come take a ride.

I just wanna fly away

I just wanna fly away to a higher place

I'm kinda down on my luck and I find myself down on my knees
I just wanna reach up to the sky
Spread my wings out and fly

Chorus:
Verse:
Well my girl just left and I lost my job now I'm out here on my own
Runnin round these streets with nowhere to go and no place to call my home
I just need a little help can somebody lend me a hand
I hope you hear me from up in the sky when I pray I wanna
Chorus:

Every day I wake up and I see the sun is shinin

When I die I wanna

Can I get away
Can I fly away
