Limestone Recordings is excited to announce its newest release entitled “Grass Is Greener,” by the extremely talented singer & songwriter Donn T.
Donn T is no stranger to the music industry. Besides her album Kaleidoscopic which was released in 2010 on More About Music, Donn T has a very impressive background. Not only has she written for the likes of Common & Jill Scott, Donn T has shared the stage with prolific artists such as Marsha Ambrosius, Little Dragon, Amy Winehouse, Zap Mama, Nelly Furtado, John Legend, Black Joe Lewis & The Honey Bears and her brother Ahmir ?uestloveThompson. Her music has been featured on compilations & films across the globe. Be on the look out for her second album Right Angle which will be released in 2012.
Produced by Matthew Bandy, “Grass is Greener” is a beautifully melancholic synth-soul number that is sure to please the broken beat & modern soul connoisseurs alike. Lyrically, this song is a heartfelt ode to following your dreams, and will sound like a reaffirmation to anyone who has treaded their own path, had set backs but the strength & will to keep moving forward. It’s about hope. Donn T is more than a song writer, she is indeed a poet.
In addition to the original, underground House music producer Matthew Bandy rounds off the package with a signature interpretation. His mix has a balanced combination of darker Detroit inspired sounds for the verse and lush analogue synths for the chorus that swim around his trademark drum programming. The mix takes its time to build a deep yet warm foundation for Donn T’s vocals.
