Biography

Jessica Rae Woodward is RAELUX. At 17 months of age, she sang her first solo in church. Throughout grade school and high school, Jess wrote songs as therapy. It wasn't until her dad bought her a guitar when she turned 19 that she became serious about her craft. She continued her training at Texas State University, where she earned a BFA in Acting, performing in musicals and plays. In her free time, she would lock herself up in a piano room at the university's music department where she wrote and recorded demos. In 2005, a friend encouraged her to submit her songs to the South by Southwest music festival and she earned a showcase. That summer she moved to Los Angeles and began to experiment with her sound. From 2009 to 2010, Jess created her musical persona, RAELUX. "Rae" is her middle name and "lux" is an illumination of light, therefore bringing out the truth within her. She knew she needed something bigger, something more dangerous. During the yearlong hiatus, she created her sound and built a thesis for her work. Part of that journey could not have been done without the help from producer Paul Layton. Paul and Jess worked on a three song EP, WALKABOUT. Jess wanted to experiment with sounds, rhythms, and especially her voice. After the release of WALKABOUT in 2010, she spent 2011 traveling the world—Malta, Hungary, Great Britain, Scotland. Songs began to flow. She laid down ideas into Garageband. Getting home, she contacted her friend/producer Jeff Kirchner to work on a 5 song EP with her. She knew she wanted something edgy and direct, while keeping the magic/warrior princess sound. Together they produced, THE WOMAN IS A GUN. Get ready for the MARCH 13th release. RAELUX will tour the new EP in 2012.

Walkabout

Written By: Jessica Rae Woodward and Paul Layton

Intro:
Taking over nations
World domination
World domination
Taking over nations (repeat)

Verse 1
You're so snakey
The way you slither
On your belly, venomously
Drop your poison
Do it quickly
Wrap your coils
Around my body

Pre- Chorus
Whatcha wanna say
Whatch wanna do, if you wanna be the one to?
Do ya wanna fight,
Do ya wanna die, do ya wanna-oo oo ooo ahhhh
Whatcha wanna say
Whatch wanna do, if you wanna be the one to?
Shout out! I'm out! Over you..

Chorus
On Walkabout.... To find my freedom
Gonna talkabout... that I'm thru oo ooo ahhh
On Walkabout... to find my kingdom
There's nothing you can say nothing you can do, just leave me true. Oh, leave me true

Verse2
Now you're breathin
Under my skin
Takin over my solar system
With calculations
And science fiction,
This, super nova is gonna get ya

Chorus.

Forever

Written By: Jessica Rae Woodward (ASCAP) and Dean Truitt (ASCAP)

V1
Taking steps that deepen me
Into the forest I go
Quickly as I move without the fear
I should be scared but I have
the hope of you waiting for me
If I could just get past all the black.
Pre
In the darkness I see you and
You are my light home
I don’t need anybody else
When we are alone...in our
Chorus
Forever.....forever....if just only you and me
Forever....forever.....if only just you...and me.
V2.
Our sweet heaven that we’re in
Has lightning striking as we
Leave the home that nurtured all our love
Smelling, tracking, why are they
Following us, I don’t know
Who would want to kill our love to win.
Pre
You hold fast to my waist and all
my fears...disappear.
Who am I to un-imagine
You weren’t...even here.....

Chorus
Forever.....forever....if just only you and me
Forever....forever.....if only just you...and me.

Bridge
Baby you can take me further, anywhere I’ll follow
Just don’t leave me, I can’t be without you..hold me
Take another breath, I’ll take you in, just hold me faster
Get me in...to our.....

CHORUS

Ladykillah

V1
His eyes shoot out / Laser beams into / their hearts /
He pulls them in / and lets them see / the lies /
PRE
Fight him off.... its hypnotizing
Fight him off....he won’t see it coming

No places is safe now that he owns control /
Don’t let him take every lover victim /

Fight him off....its mesmorizing
Fight him off.... he won’t see it coming

Lady Killah..... you know you can’t hide
I’m the one who knows, your little game
Lady Killah!

You know you’ll never, ever win the fight
You know its gonna have to end tonight
