Biography

Ron and Lisa Potter is a duo who want to invade mainstream music with a different kind of sound…the kind that entertains your mind, haunts your soul, and breaks some rules.

Juniper music features Lisa's vocals, which reflect an eclectic mix of powerful and ambient moods. Ron produces and tracks each sound. He plays guitar and programs many of the beats and other sounds. Lisa states that they work together as a team but has an interesting take on what that looks like. “I like to be his sounding board,” says Lisa. “I lock him in a room, slide food under the door, and don’t let him come out until I hear something creative!”

Not exactly “niche” type music, Juniper is carving out its own space. Having been dubbed “The Real Deal" and "Unique to the Alt-Pop, Industrial groove genre” by catsask.com, it's well on its way. Hits such as "Crazy Love" and "You Rock My World" from their last release have received songwriting recognition by SongoftheYear.com and draw comparisons to a sonic marriage of a sultry Shirley Manson to a cryptically dark Trent Reznor. "Without You", "Run Away" and "Rejected" also highlight Juniper's most recent release.

Ron also creates instrumentals. "The music is very good," affirms Studio 51 producer David Trotter. While electronic in genre, Ron's instrumentals reflect all kinds of moods and can be sampled at myspace.com/pottersinstrumentals

Ron works well with other composers and will be receiving a producer's credit on the next release from Moroccan artist, Issam Azziz. While Ron's craft merged effortlessly to six of Issam's Middle Eastern melodies, several songs will feature Lisa's vocals for an intriguing version of trance music. This work will soon be released by ACM Records.

What does the future hold for Ron and Lisa? "Wherever the music takes us," asserts Ron. It's evident that they remain committed to creating music and are sincere on their wish to invade mainstream music. Whether that music puts them in the spotlight or keeps them behind the scenes, they are preparing and available to do both.

Lyrics

Hurt

Written By: Juniper

My every dream is a forest
And every goal is a tree
So why are you chopping at what I believe
Why do you want to control me?
I feel I’ve made myself clear
If you persist then I cannot be near to you
Why don’t you care about my dreams?
You don’t care much about me
You only care about your dreams
And how you can live them through me
You’ve been hurt too many times
You’ve been hurt too many times
So have we all
So now I have this dilemma
A typical catch 22
Decide to leave or remain close to you
Never will I have your approval
You’ll never admit that you’re wrong
I dedicate all the words in this song to you

You Rock My World

Written By: Juniper

Drive me crazy with your touch
I'm convinced your man enough
Tattooed your name on my chest
Sexy baby, you're the best

You rock my world
You rock my world

Freaky cravings we engage
Love it when you set the stage
Every role I want to play
Direct me, I am your slave

You rock my world
You rock my world

Losing all my discipline
Need to feel you in my skin
Groaning everything I crave
Spank me, I have misbehaved
Kiss me baby anywhere
Eat off my pink underwear

Stay with me, you won't regret
Wash our love with all my sweat
Sweet cream rises to the top
Tonight you'll beg me to stop

You rock my world
You rock my world
You rock my world
You rock my world

Crazy Love

Written By: Juniper

I wake you up to suggest, you can tie me up if you want to
Don't stop until you're satisfied, I don't think you know how much I want you
Blindfolded even though it's dark, but I want to feel a tingle in each joint
The tie that binds in ecstasy, a voice you give to your rapture point

This is crazy love
Hurt me if you want to
Cause this is crazy love
It only hurts if it's not true

Late at night I'm watching you breathing so gently asleep
I hope it's me you're dreaming of, cause something's going on under the sheets

This is crazy love
Hurt me if you want to
Cause this is crazy love
It only hurts if it's not true
This is crazy love
No need for safety words
Cause this is crazy love
When it's true it never hurts

This is crazy love
Hurt me if you want to
Cause this is crazy love
It only hurts if it's not true
This is crazy love
This is crazy love
This is crazy love
It only hurts if it's not true

Naughty Girl

Written By: Juniper

R U happy when I play your game
R U satisfied to say my name
Baby is it true
I’m the only one for you

I want to make U happy
Just want to be your naughty girl
Give U something to remember
Tonight will last forever
I will make U happy

Deeper pleasures I want U to feel
Fantasies evolving to the real
Keep your eyes on me
Baby I want U to see

Run Away

Written By: Juniper

Need a vacation for my brain
Gotta get away before I go insane
Feelings so intense
And they don't make sense
A measuring cup
Can't add it all up
Gotta be brave
Gotta be strong
Gotta keep moving like nothing is wrong
Don't fall asleep
Never fall asleep
Don't let them see you dream

Got my back to a wall
Am about to fall
Gotta run away

Rejected

Written By: Juniper

Read your email today
You've got too much to say
Why mention jealousies between you and your girlfriend
You're full of contradictions
Crossing emotional jurisdictions
No one's gonna be happy in the end

So go away
Although I'm home
And all alone
I don't want you around
Go away
Although I'm home
I hear the phone
But I'm ignoring the sound

Read another email today
Sounds like you're in a dream state
You say the sound of my voice can shake you
But this is not a dream
Gonna have to come clean
Gonna have to say something that will awake you

R-E-J-E-C-T-E-D
That's what you're getting from me
I don't want you
I don't need you
Don't wanna be seen around you

Read another email today
Courtesy will not display
These messages need more than a pop-up blocker
Remove the chance of doubt
Even if I have to shout
Prevent facilitating my personal stalker

Your Pussycat

Written By: Ron Potter

You can be a king of the jungle
And I can be your pussycat baby
In bed you’re king of the rumble
And I’m just your pussycat baby

For me it’s a lifestyle
For you it’s a fantasy
Turning real in a moment
Like two kitties in ecstasy
We’re just playing together
I can be your cat
Your pussy kitten lover
And we’re making this moment
Just to make us another

CHORUS
Can I be your pussycat lover?
Bind you up
Slap you around
Scratch your back
Make you go down
Or, lap you up like kitty milk
Wrap you up in sheets of silk
This cat has claws
So watch your paws
And let me do the work
Cause I’m a working girl baby

You can be a king of the jungle
And I can be your pussycat baby
In bed you’re king of the rumble
And I’m just your pussycat baby

My gentlemen love me
And I love my gentlemen
My short ones and tall ones
My sugar daddies and their laddies
I’ll play with your BALLS of yarn
Like playful kitties do
I’m just a harmless pussycat
Who wants to play with you

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I want to be your pussycat baby
We can play all through the night
I can be your pussycat baby
But the price has gotta be right

CHORUS
