    "We Will Break Out" is a modern, minimal chorale piece that incorporates a musical structure from world spiritual trance traditions filtered through the lens of American secular electronica.  

    The layers build steadily to a climax of declaration and a sudden abrupt ending.  It is written for SSAATTBB choir with an accompanying string instrument (piano, electric guitar, etc). ©℗2013 Vanessa Boyd

    Lyrics: We will break out and fly.

about

As I said in the video for "Straight" off of Emerge, I went straight in New York. It was the first time in my life that I was completely legal - all of my paperwork was in order, all of my addresses were real. I went on a healing binge. I cleaned up.

And I turned 30. My body and my life changed. I was commuting to my day job on a bicycle across the Brooklyn bridge every day with a basket on the back, carrying my lunch with me rather than eating the ubiquitous pitas and pizzas at nearby delis.

What does it mean to be a musician; or more specifically, a modern, American musician? What about those of us who don't fit the magazine image?

lyrics

Do It Rock and Roll

Can I do it and play rock and roll?
Can I do it with my belly hanging out?
Can I do it and pack my lunch?
