BandR&BSinger/Songwriter

I would have to say that my music is soulful and emotional above all. Every song I write pertains to a particular part of my life and because I sing as well and it is my passion, I am able to put both talents together to make for a true artist with real life artistic abilities.

This singer/songwriter doesn't take a break and the success she encounters launches her to the next phase in making her vision reality. Janelle grew up surrounded by music. Both her father, grandfather and great grandfather were musicians and she says there were many nights when the live music of her father’s band was the last thing she heard as she went to sleep at night.

Lyrics

Drifting

Written By: Janelle N. Braun

I told myself I was never gonna fall in love
Now I’m hurting only thinking about us
Every night you stay on my mental
Chant your name along with the tempo
My baby my baby my baby my baby
We can do something right here maybe
Working so hard to get your attention
But it ain’t happening might I mention

Hook/Chorus:
Stop drifting away
Baby won’t you stay
We’ll make this evening right
Let’s mend our love tonight
(repeat)

Tonight tonight tonight tonight
But we should call it off if you just want to fight
Baby are we going in the same direction
Cause I just noticed I can’t keep your attention
Don’t leave me tonight baby I’ll be more exciting
You can look into my eyes while I’m riding
Always keep it sexy so you should take a seat
We can put our song on and listen to the beat

Hook/Chorus

Turn off the tv and the cell phone too
Because no one can do it like I do
Don’t forget what we’ll have for a lifetime
If you let loose and prove that your mine
Lately it’s been like I don’t exist
Waiting all day just to get a kiss
Let’s take a second here and redefine a moment
Rekindle the fire and work hard to hold it

Hook/Chorus
