Mad Satta – The Makings of You

Mad Satta – The Makings of You. Mad Satta is coming up through the ranks and carving a place for themselves in today’s world by bringing passionate, forward-thinking new school soul back into the airwaves. This ultra-tight eight-piece outfit concocts lush neo-soul awash in electric organs, bright horns, and deep bass-line grooves. Frontwoman Joanna Teters, increasingly known for her powerful voice and relaxed presence turns heads with her ability to switch effortlessly from a smooth-but-smokey lilt into a rugged reggae delivery. She is joined by bass player Ben Carr, keyboardist Kevin Theodore (Ever Forthright, Soul Understated), guitarist Ted Morcaldi and multi-instrumentalist and drummer Zane West. In June of 2012, by adding Collin Wade on alto sax, Eric Zeiser on trumpet and Jason Fitch on tenor sax, Mad Satta took their sound to the next level. They have since shared the stage with some notable musicians and musical acts— Ozomatli, Afrika Bambaataa, Gabriel Garzon-Montano and The Stepkids to name a few, and continue to appear all over the east coast. Mad Satta’s highly anticipated debut album “Comfort” is set for a summer 2014 release, produced by triple Grammy-winner Prince Charles Alexander.

Mad Satta – The Makings of You Lyrics:
A little sugar, honey suckle lamb
Great expression of happiness
Boy, you could not miss with a dozen roses
Such would astound you
The joy of children laughing around you
These are the makings of you
It is true, the makings of you, oh

It’s been a miracle for what you’ve done
Please stay right by my side
Two can be one for the righteous way to go
Anyone would know
I believe I thought I told you so
You’re second to none

Love of all mankind should reflect some sign
Of these words I’m trying to recite
They’re close, but not quite
Almost impossible to do
Reciting the makings of you

The righteous way to go
Little one would know
Or believe if I told them so
You’re second to none

The love of all mankind should reflect some sign
Of these words I’m trying to recite
They’re close, but not quite
Almost impossible to do
Reciting the makings of you.
