// BIO

Lady Daisey has rocked venues around the globe - from small smokey clubs to massive hip hop festivals - her message is one of love and inspiration, soulfully presented over head noddin’ Batsauce beats. Singing since she was 5, Lady Daisey has developed a playful powerhouse style that’s sure to grab the attention and steal the hearts of everyone within ear’s reach.

Daisey was born in Brooklyn, NY, and grew up on the road, touring the U.S. with her parent’s band. She started singing with them as soon as she could hold the mic, putting her own twist on Top 40 cover artists, such as Michael Jackson, Sister Sledge, Cindy Lauper and Prince. The seed was planted… she was meant to be on stage.

As much as Lady Daisey travels the globe, she’s learned to keep life simple and travel light. The most important things are weightless - love, life, music, inspiration, peace - all of which she keeps in her pocket (when she’s not wearing it on her sleeve)

Sharing her unique vision with an even more unique voice, Lady Daisey’s solo debut is filled with a sense of adventure, passionately singing about her experience as a woman, a traveler, a survivor, an optimist, a dreamer… all over hip-hop infused soul music.

It’s like sunshine for your soul…

After meeting the love of her life on stage (Batsauce - husband and producer) it seemed only natural to pack their bags and hit the road. With a studio small enough to fit in a backpack, they have written and recorded this album, all while bouncing around the States, Europe and Asia.

Both, Lady Daisey and Batsauce, are also part of the Smile Rays (Rawkus/6-Hole/Jakarta/Subcontact) along with Paten Locke (aka Therapy) After recording a track with George Clinton and being selected as Rawkus 50 artists, they quickly won the hearts of the indie hip hop scene. She’s opened for Sharon Jones, Mayer Hawthorne, Chali 2na, Roxanne Shante,Bahamadia, the Perceptionists. She’s rocked festivals around the world alongside the Roots, Method Man, Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Muse,Souls of Mischief, Zion I.
This raised the bar and now it’s time for Lady Daisey to share her songs with the world. She does just that with her debut solo album ”In My Pocket”

Lyrics

Perfect Words

Written By: Lady Daisey

i come alive at the thought of your love coming near me
the sound of your breath makes me shiver inside... my mind
your eyes - they tell me things that perfect words can't seem to find
and in return, in return i give you my my all of me
liek the sun to the moon I'll be here by your side
normally, this is where I run and hide
but I dont feel that way with you

love's never felt so true
so right as rain
I'll say it again and again
but the perfect words escape my brain
so all I can do... is give you my all of me
and hope you can feel it too

your body a magnet and I am metallic dust
no I won't rust
your hands they tell me things, they show me things
that perfect words can't seem to find
and in return, in return I give you my alllll of me.
normally, this is where I run and hide
but I dont feel that way with you

love's never felt so true
so right as rain
I'll say it again and again
but the perfect words escape my brain
so all I can do... is give you my all of me
and hope you can feel it too

Day Old Bread

Written By: Lady Daisey

day old bread
in my pocket
keeps me happy
all day long

walking down the street i see
a basket by the door
full of tasty bread
with half of the price
than it had the day before

i don't need
expensive things
to make me who I be
the less I have
the more I laugh
keepin it simple is the key

fancy cars and jewelry
pretty as they may be
take up space
in my tiny place
just enough room
for you and me

chillin in the park - park with my people
singing under the sun
belly start to rumble
and its time for a break
but I dont wanna leave the fun

day old bread
in my pocket
keeps me happy
all day long

standing in the line at the bank
just before my turn
a sign goes up
all the money dried up
that I had the day before

aint got no house
aint got no car
i said i aint got nothing
that i couldn't pay cash for
pre-approved,
low rates, rack it up
get stuck, no thanks!

the old man at the bus stop
asked me for some change
i dug deep down in my pocket
as I tried to explain

the whole wide world situation
is breaking the system down
reminding the people
to start living simple
look what i found

day old bread
in my pocket
keeps me happy
all day long

4 o'clock in the Morning

Written By: Lady Daisey

party in my mind...
on a monday 4 oh clock in the morning
and i gotta go to sleepbut i'm in too deep
my eyes keep poppin' wide open

so...
i throw back the sheets
i take it to the streets
I walk in the dark
thinkin bout things
and i follow the birds
and they take me to the park
and we start to sing

we get real high
watch sun rise

such a beautiful sight
such a tasty treat
to think i would'a missed it
if I was asleep...

4 o'clock in the morning

BREATHE IT IN...
the collective energy
of everybody's dreams
LET IT OUT...
harmonious laughter

music in my mind...
on a friday 4 oh clock in the morning
hot fiyah coming out the speakers
brother batsauce makin beats cuz
he's feelin...

the rhythm
and I'm feelin the groove
the vibe is chillin
we startin' to move
so beautiful our souls connecting...

dancin round the room feeling beautiful (carefree)
nothing is as true as what we about to do (so sweet)

what a beautiful night
such a tasty treat
to think we would'a missed it
if we were asleep...
at 4 o'clock in the morning
