about

Jenn Grant’s Paradise is the most adventurous and deliberate work she’s ever done. Following 2015’s Juno nominations of Triple A Album Of The Year and Songwriter Of The Year for Compostela, Grant and husband Daniel Ledwell took a year in their home studio to craft an album of melodic beauty and sonic diversity. Grant displays the nuanced soulfulness in her voice, and touches on folk, R&B, and rock balladry. Paradise is the result of a talented, experienced musician employing all her abilities to lengths never before heard.

Track Name: Paradise
Paradise

We were planting a garden, with every wish and every seed. I can feel you here, your soul is in the trees. And your hands fly up, why am I losing sleep? With every year that goes, yes my body feels.
Where do you go when I see that look that gets too far in your eyes. I’m a two-step honey, I’m your trigger, I’m your paradise.
All my saving graces got me twisted up inside.
I am longing for you like there’s nothing left to hide, nothing left to hide.

Sweet silence, soft cool breeze. Long live my love, for all you give to me.
Am I everything you need, everything you see? In the air you breathe, everything you need?

Where do you go when I see that look that gets too far in your eyes. I’m a two-step honey, I’m your trigger, I’m your paradise.
All my saving graces got me twisted up inside.
I am longing for you like there’s nothing left to hide, nothing left to hide.

Stuck inside your head get on your knees and pray. Whatever gets you through it doesn’t matter who.
Calculation of everything you meant to say. If summing up your tongues and will help you find a way.
Stuck inside your head get on your knees and pray. Whatever gets you through it doesn’t matter who.
Quiet of your mind, ten minutes everyday.
When everything that you love goes away. When everything that you love goes away, was here before and after you anyway.

Where do you go when I see that look that gets too far in your eyes. I’m a two-step honey, I’m your trigger, I’m your paradise.
All my saving graces got me twisted up inside.
I am longing for you like there’s nothing left to hide, nothing left to hide.
Track Name: Galaxies
Galaxies

Can you hear me? Running through the tricks of time.
Out on the road, screaming like my lungs on fire.
Do you see me, laughing with my love wide eyed?
All we’re made of, everything gets in the tied.
What are we made of? Criss cross and out of luck.
Tears keep falling, they say my dreams are out of touch.
Forever, and lucky for us. My baby keeps me on the good stuff

I’m here, my love. Even when I’m standing out alone.
And there’s a galaxy of us that shines and I hear ya callin me home.
I’m here my love, even when I’m standing out alone.
And there’s a galaxy of us that shines and I hear ya callin me home.

Long days under the cherry tree. When we were kids, yeah, when we were seventeen.
Some things they never change. Some people, they got to go away
That’s who you are. That’s you, as far as the stars.

I’m here, my love. Even when I’m standing out alone.
And there’s a galaxy of us that shines and I hear ya calling me home.
I’m here my love, even when I’m standing out alone.
And there’s a galaxy of us that shines and I hear ya calling me home.
And there’s a galaxy of us that shines and I hear ya calling me home.
Track Name: In My Dreams
In My Dreams

My love, take everything I taught you. Break it down in pieces, let the water run off you.
Sipping on tea from the medicine of witches. Healing all the creases that got you down on me.

Down on your knees praying to a Jesus. Darling I bleed every time it hits me.
My lips cannot speak of the ways that you got me. And falling asleep in dreams that you don’t see.

In my dreams that you don’t see.

When you get tired of thinking what you can’t be, lay on down beside me and I’ll keep you here.
Long you live in the galaxy of angels, falling off with these spells and you finally heal.

Down on your knees praying to a Jesus. Darling I bleed every time it hits me.
My lips cannot speak of the ways that you got me. And falling asleep in dreams that you don’t see.

In my dreams that you don’t see.

I was laying down upon the sounds that kept me from sleeping with my crown, dreaming all the things they thought I’d be.
They showed me diamonds and gold but not these rivers that I know. Nothing compares to the real thing baby.
I wasn’t here for the chase, but I got caught up in the race and I locked eyes with the tiger coming for his kill.
He whispered, something I know in this life before we go, it matters what you are before you close that door.

In my dreams that you don’t see
Track Name: Lion With Me
Lion With Me

I hear your voice like an echo chain, calling me on back again.
I see your eyes crystal blue, clear as day calling me on back to you.

Through the hemlock I can see, smoke rising signaling me, I will wait.
By the rivers of the fall, wind whistles and I hear you call. I will wait. I will wait forever for you, babe.

Herons, eagles, passing by. Telling me it’s no time to die.
I’m leaving on a new jet plane, ain’t the same without you, babe.
One more winter, here we go.
Dig my heart out of the snow, I will wait.
Big bright cities every night don’t compare to what we got.

Do you want me, do you want me? I am golden and I’m holding you.
Do you want me, do you want me? I’m a lion. You’re a lion.
I’m a keeper, a light seeker. I’ve got you. Do you want me to be golden? Be a golden lion with me. Lie with me.

Through the hemlock i can see, smoke rising signaling me, I will wait.
By the rivers of the fall, wind whistles and I hear you call. I will wait.
I will wait forever for you, babe.
Track Name: I Am A River
I Am A River

I’m a river flowing deep. I’m an eagle, my soul to keep.
I’m a mountain, I am the peek. I am the prairie, I am the heat.

I, I’ve got myself a sinner tonight. Just hanging on the yellow line, where we met. Wasting time, to forget.

I’m a cradle, where you sleep. I am an island that you seek. I’m a country, I am the trees. I am a woman, made of all these things.

I, I’ve got myself a sinner tonight. Just hanging on the yellow line, where we met. Wasting time, to forget.

We’re everything we think we are. We’re everything, believe it.

I, I’ve got myself a sinner tonight. Just hanging on the yellow line, where we met. Wasting time, to forget.
Track Name: Hero
Hero

When I am failing now, I just forget I let you go. I’m losing track of all the places where we hit so low.
When I cry, baby I cry, I cry. And I’d be lying. Just wanna dance with you so slow.

I call you like a river that runs right through. My hero keeps on running wild and fast. I feel my heavy heart beating one, beat two. Now what have we become, what are we gonna do?

When we were young, yeah we were swimming on the ocean floor. Into the black, into the blue, not afraid anymore.
When I try, baby I try, I try.
And I’d be lying. Just want to dance with you so slow.

I call you like a river that runs right through. My hero keeps on running wild and fast. I feel my heavy heart beating one, beat two. Now what have we become, what are we gonna do?
Track Name: Working Girl
Working Girl

I’m holding my breath like a symphony. Biding my tongue til I can’t breathe, it’s the season.
I’m packing my dresses up at night, when all the greats we love have died, give me a reason.

When everyone that you love and you know pushes like the wind and says, go.

You get going, go. Get going, go. Get going, going, go.

The full moon rises up and I know. The souls of kings and princes go, it’s the season.
I read it in the news today, The whole world cried for everything we believed in.

When everyone that you love and you know pushes like the wind and says, go.

Get going, go. Get going, go. Get going, going, go.

You’re running up that hill, and your lambs are all but still. Your heron bird hears every word and he carries you until.
The olive trees and oranges we seed. You’re flying high like the raven who cries, and she’s searching just like me.

You get going, go. Get going, go. Get going, going, go.
Track Name: Dogfight
Dogfight

I can see from your eyes, you’re tired as a fighting dog. I can hear from your cries, this world is not enough.
I’ve been all over, I’ve been all over this world. But I still can’t save ya.
I’ve been all over, I’ve been all over this world. But I still can’t save ya.

Enough. Enough. Enough. Don’t give it up. Don’t give it up.

You got me working on the line, almost out the door.
Got me working on the line, almost asking for more. I was stoned.

Don’t tell me about it. Love cries, love fights.
Don’t tell me about it. Love tries, love tried.

You got me working on the line, almost out the door.
Got me working on the line, almost asking for more.
Track Name: Sorry Doesn't Know
Sorry Doesn’t Know


Let it glow, let it glow. This love won’t keep you down.
Sorry doesn’t know. These stories got you broken down.
Let it glow, let it glow. I feel your heart is breaking.
She calls you like the radio. In you ears and it won’t stop playing. Tears and you won’t stop playing.

Get up, get down. Now what is your inspiration?
I’ll find you somehow, and give you every reason.

Let it glow, let it glow.
A fever has you. And you’re praying like a ghost, will comfort and carry you.
Let it glow, let it glow. Rain fills our glasses. Holding you in the ashes.
Living’s what you got to do. Loving’s what you got to do.

Get up, get down. Now what is your inspiration?
I’ll find you somehow. And give you every reason.
Your lioness gets out. She crawls at you until you’re reeling.
I’ll find you somehow, and never be leaving.
Never be leaving.

Little fire in the palm of a child. You’ve been running for a decade, you’ve been chasing for a while. That glow that keeps you part of it, that kept you warm at night.
In the wind that carries you in gentle hymns, with your mind made of the mountains, were you safe from anything?
Thought all your troubles were behind you, but these roads were getting thin. I get up.

Get up, get down. Now what is your inspiration?
I’ll find you somehow, and give you every reason.
Your lioness gets out, and crawls at you til’ you’re reeling. I’ll find you somehow, and never be leaving.
Never be leaving.
Track Name: Rocket
Rocket

Father in the sky. Prisms around us as we rocket on by. Blue eyes, telling me don’t take for granted what’s yours in this life.

Blue eyes, blue eyes.

Straightening your tie at the end of a golden road, thank you for coming by. Looking sharp, I saw your face
and thought, my god, is this goodbye?

I carried on in a silver ship with you, all around the moon.

Let us not pretend now, let us not pretend now, that we’ve got all the answers. Let us not pretend now, let us not pretend now, that we’ve got all the answers.

Blue eyes, blue eyes.

On my knees, I was begging please. With every bone and breath I breathe. I’m taking from you, thinking of you, as you are taken from me. On my knees, I was begging please. With every breath and bone I breathe. I’m taking from you, thinking of you, as you are taken from me.
Track Name: Legacy
Legacy

Love like mine, feels like a thousand miles. Keep every word I write, it belongs to you.
And a love like mine, keeps me like a legacy. Baby when you feel my love, no you won’t believe.

Love like mine, feels like the heat is on. These walls are paper thin and I’m far gone.
In ecstasy, roll like the ocean deep. They can hear you calling me, all night long.

All night long, all night long. Can’t get you out of my head.
All night long, all night long. Get me out of my head.

Hold on now, you’re running like you’re feeling blazed.
Fire in your heart is on. Tender of the night so long.
And oh my love, keep me in your starry eyes. I want to see you hypnotized, and clothes off.

All night long, all night long. Can’t get you out of my head.
All night long, all night long. Get me out of my head.

And the temperature rises, temperature rise. And the temperature rises, temperature rise.

All night long, all night long. Can’t get you out of my head.
