"Who is Ann — Project 5.4"

Project 5.4 EP: “Who is Ann?”

Release Date: Sept. 6, 2019 

When Enigma burst on the music scene in the ’90s with their blend of electronica-infused pop music, I became hooked. They have remained an influence in my music ever since, as have elements of rap, folk, country, and basically any artist that colors outside the lines lyrically and musically. From the pedal steel wizardry of Lloyd Maines to my own collection of loops and spoken word pieces, I hammered out a dream of mine. We created a collection of songs where the music is infused with vocal percussion and lyrics to create a mood that addresses depression from profound loss, and the steely reserve to move forward and grab the light. A light that must not be dimmed — especially in our current climate.

Song by Song

By Terri Hendrix 

 

1. Drive 

I collect royalty-free electronica samples. For this song we merged pop samples with country music instrumentation. It's a spoken word piece where the pedal steel creates a moody vibe about love and loss. 

2. Happy  

This track features bullies, racists, homophobic religious zealots, hypocrites, mean-spirited politicians, and radio and television anomalies. I've been recording these voices that prey on fear, strive to divide, and distort religion for their own political aspirations for the past 15 years. I've now looped some of them and put them to a quirky little dance track. Why did I do this? Because I'm tired of their "song" and needed to write my own. Because there is no "us versus them." There is just us.

3. Move 

After my sister Tammi's death, I moved one limb at a time to get out of bed. I wrote this right before a show. I was under the weather and didn't want to cancel. But I "moved my body" and it all worked out. There comes a time to get back up. It took me a year. 

4. Woman

Attitude is everything and this song is my tribute to the women champions who stick their neck out, spread their wings, and fly in spite of adversity. 

5. Grieve 

I lost my sister, Tammi Hendrix, at 6:42 p.m. on March 8, 2018. I still grieve for my sister like a wounded animal. The waves come in and I find myself back in the ocean. That's why there are samples of the ocean in this track. The breathy vocal bursts are deliberate, and signify being unable to breath during the grieving process.

Drive

Verse 

The windmill turns into a story

Spins a tale of days gone by

The fields roll on into the sunset

A harvest moon is on the rise 

Miles down a two-lane highway

Crops of corn stand in a row 

The stars saw us in all our glory

Just off this county road 

Chorus

It’s a long lonesome 

Drive without you 

It’s a long lonesome 

Drive without you 

Verse 

A metal sign swings in the wind

It’s on a dancehall long since closed 

Boards on windows of the building 

Lock the secrets that it holds 

Your fingers run straight through my mind 

On the backroads of the South 

Your car seats and the sound of pearl snaps 

The salty sweet of your mouth 

Chorus 

It’s a long lonesome 

Drive without you 

It’s a long lonesome 

Drive without you

 

Happy 

Why can’t everybody be happy happy?

Why can’t everybody get along?

Why can’t everybody be happy happy?

Take a little time to enjoy the sweet song

 

They say we’re racially divided 

They say we're undecided 

They say they speak for the people

We the people gotta speak louder 

than the Ugh

 

Everybody could be happy happy

Why can’t everybody get along?

Take a little time to enjoy the sweet song

 

How can they speak for main street

Looking at the world 

Through the window of a limousine

I say they’d know us better

If they didn't pick a side

And just sat together … now 

 

Everybody could be happy happy

Why can’t everybody get along?

Why can’t everybody be happy happy?

Take a little time to enjoy the sweet song 

Ratings go up

And you know what

Ratings go up

Woman

Beautiful confident lithe 

You move like a tiger 

Your integrity

Your honesty

Your soul

Your heart 

Your courage

Your strength

Your grace 

 

I look at you and I wonder

What would it be like

To have so much courage 

That you never doubted your convictions

You just stood up

Wild and fearless

With arms outstretched 

Chin forward 

Leaning into the wind

With a voice louder than the horizon

Tell me

Tell me 

I need the answer 

I want to wake up

And see who you see

When you look in the mirror 

Are you beautiful confident lithe 

Do you move like a tiger 

Life I want to live it 

Life I want to live it 

I want to wake up

Tomorrow

And rise up into the sun

And reach up through the trees

And fly 

 

Grieve

I’m still here 

In the dark 

Oh, I’m still here 

In the dark 

 

Tell me where to go from here

Tell me how to plan for tomorrow

Tell me how to do the things I must

In spite of all the sorrow 

 

Cause time is moving on

Friends are moving on

Family is moving on 

 

And I’m here … 

I’m here … 

I’m here … 

I’m here … 

 

And I’m …

Still here 

In my heart 

Oh, so sad 

In my heart

 

Ahhh … I took it the river 

When the river ran dry

I still had hope

 

I turned my back

But not my heart 

Shut my eyes 

To see your face 

 

Did you know 

Did you know 

That I’m here … 

I’m here … 

 

And I’m 

Still here 

In the dark 

 

Time is movin on 

Friends are movin 

Family is movin on 

And I’m here
