Kali Uchis - After The Storm 
Official Lyrics
[Intro: Bootsy Collins]
Ah
Whatever goes around
Eventually comes back to you
So you gotta be careful, baby
And look both ways
Before you cross my mind

[Verse 1: Kali Uchis & Bootsy Collins]
Did you ever wonder?
Yeah, do you ever wonder
What he might be going through on his own, and
The demons that he's facing alone
I hate that sometimes I can't go home
And it just the same on the phone, no
But everybody's gotta go on, don't they?
Yes, we do, baby

[Pre-Chorus: Kali Uchis & Bootsy Collins]
So if you need a hero (if you need a hero)
Just look in the mirror (just look in the mirror)
No one's gonna save you now
So you better save yourself
And everybody's hurting
Everybody's going through it
But you just can't give up now
'Cause you gotta save yourself
Yeah, gotta hang on, baby
[Chorus: Kali Uchis]
The sun'll come out
Nothing good ever comes easy
I know times are rough
But winners don't quit
So don't you give up
The sun'll come out
But we've been struggling endless days
Someday we'll find the love
'Cause after the storm's
When the flowers bloom

[Verse 2: Tyler, The Creator]
Kali, what you mean?
I take it offensive
'Cause I'm the hottest flower boy
That popped up on the scene
Feeling better, better than ever
'Cause your umbrella, -brella (-brella, light)
Sun is beaming on me like headlights beaming on Bambi
Now let's pretend the street is the room
And you are a Camry
'Cause your drama candid
The Tito to my Randy
Now let's produce some thrillers
My chocolate wit' yo' vanilla, uh
[Chorus: Kali Uchis]
The sun'll come out
Nothing good ever comes easy
I know times are rough
But winners don't quit
So don't you give up
The sun'll come out
But we've been struggling endless days
Someday we'll find the love
'Cause after the storm...

[Bridge: Kali Uchis]
I know it's hard
But do you even really try?
Maybe you could understand
When all you had to do was ask
And just open your mind
When everything is passing by
And all you had to do was try
Yeah, all you had to was try

[Outro: Bootsy Collins & Kali Uchis]
Try, try, try, try, try
All you had to do was try
Try, try, try, try

Elise Trouw - mashup: Foo Fighters meets Bobby Caldwell

The Quiet Storm is proud to present Elise Trouw. Her delivery is polished with a well developed groove as a talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. As a one girl band relying on looping, her skills as a great arranger shine. She has just the right touch on everything.

Drums are her main instrument, but she is gifted all around with broad skills.

She is 18 years old mashing up the 20 year old song titled Everlong by the Foo Fighters and the 40 year old Quiet Storm classic titled What You Won't Do For Love by Bobby Caldwell. She sings, plays keys, bass, guitar, drums and does it all with groove, amazing grace and a little bit of a nonchalant attitude as if it's second nature, all in one take.

Listen to all of her recordings that are out there so far and it's easy to note that she is multi-dimensional with unlimited crossover potential, so it's a futile idea to attempt to pigeonhole her style or gauge which genre she'll dominate. But this track and music video below falls quintessentially into The Quiet Storm format, all the way :)

This viral music video landed Elise her debut network TV appearance performing two songs on ABC-TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live on January 30, 2018!
