The inspiration behind the EP was to tap the emotional journey people go through during different phases of their life. “Music Will Lift You” is a five-song EP collection that celebrates self-expression through music - anthems of love, joy and pain with all songs created to soothe, move and lift you. The track listing includes Fool For Your Love, Music Will Lift You, Trapped and Cornered, Maxi and Heartbreaker.
“The BareRoot is getting right to the heart of what moves us, touching the nerve of what makes us do what we do, good or bad, right or wrong. We’re reflecting on the emotions and feelings that we go through in life. Whether its times of facing self- doubt, needing self-gratification or realizing our dreams, music heals and guides us through it all,” said Carol Hatchett.
Carol Hatchett and Daniel Pearson composed and arranged every track on “Music Will Lift You,” which is their fourth EP release. A fusion mix of soul, jazz, R&B and funk, their catalog includes Live Wire (2016), Born to Love (2015) and Dance Under the Lights (2013).
