about

This album is really close to my heart.
i made it for you to cruise around to on a sunny day or to bring your ears some musical sunshine on a cloudy one..

Feel the times indeed.
I named it because of a continual theme that inadvertently came up during the writing of this album.
Feel the times and enjoy them as well.

i hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Your Friend in Funk,
Jermaine Quiz

if you really wanna know what i think. read this.

i feel really blessed to have found this scene they called New Orleans. An anomaly on this vast landscape we call the universe.i find inspiration in every leaning shotgun, pothole laden road, and imperfection

I am a cynic, but i believe in music. It lets me forget all the tragedies that occur every second. Pretty powerful for something you cant see huh?An invisible force that can shape our lifestyle.

People have asked but I honestly don't know exactly why i wrote this record. If it feels right, i dont ask.
you know why?
Because when it hits it is the most natural thing in life and if it doesn't its impossible.
This record flowed like and unstoppable river.

You can't seperate my music from the heavy influence of the legends of New Orleans.
You cant seperate my music from my generations Rock n Roll or Jazz aka Hip Hop.
But i strive to just make good music.

In the words of my most revered songwriter, Bob Dylan:
"May your heart always be joyful, may your song always be sung, and may you stay forever young"

Your humble partner in crime,
Jermaine Quiz

Track Name: Sings this song
She dreams of a better life,
i bet shes right,
blessed she can see the light.

im blessed i can see her flight,
angel attached to earth like strings to a kite.

and shes always got that hustle,
2 jobs and school thats a tough load,
i aint a fool i aint a busta
shes the truth shes got that gusto..

shes the proof why i believe in loving,
shes so smooth when the roads are bumpy,
shes so cool when we in the oven,
fresh air in a world so stuffy

a prayer in a world so ugly,
aint scared of what is comin,
believes that peace exists,
she sing her song and it goes like this:

CHORUS

she sings of a better night a better day
lets the pain melt away,
as the beat plays she sways,
loves my band cuz she got good taste,

she the breeze, shes the waves,
shes tommorow and shes today,
sits and stares i gaze amazed,
cuz shes the sun and shes the rays.

shes the reason and shes the rhyme,
shes the season and shes the times,
shes the one and shes the people,
she is fun but she is lethal.

I cant think I cant breathe,
she is my drug she's my disease,
i say thank you, she says please
when she sings this song it sets her free.

when we on tour and we hear the applause,

that applause for you,
may you rise up when the tide come through,

may you stay calm in this time of hectic-ness
it wont be long til you find your bliss,
