A rare combination of masterful songwriting and breathtaking vocal talent, Deva Mahal steps into the spotlight on her debut, ’Run Deep’, an album of pulse-pounding soul with a decidedly modern edge. Taking inspiration from the idea of strength through vulnerability, Deva powerfully connects with her audience with raw honesty, rich musicality, and emotionally searing songs of love and loss, and the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity.

Lyrics:

Slither sinner like a snake in the grass
Wolf in sheep's clothing with words made of glass
Crept up upon me like a shadow on the wall
Couldn’t prepare me for how heavy I would fall

And I say ooh girl, step on the scene, don’t you know the world is so mean?
Ooh girl, caught in between, don’t you know the grass ain’t green?
Ooh girl, step on the scene, don’t you know the world is so mean?
Ooh girl, caught in between, don’t you know the grass ain’t green?

Smoke and mirror, what a spell you have cast
Cruel predictions have all come to pass
The earth is shaking and the sky is tumbling down
Shaking my tree ‘til my leaves fall to the ground
And I said fall to the ground, fall to the ground
Fall to the, fall to the, fall to the ground

And I said ooh girl, step on the scene, don’t you know the world is so mean?
Ooh girl, caught in between, don’t you know the grass ain’t green?
Ooh girl, step on the scene, don’t you know the world is so mean?
Ooh girl, caught in between, don’t you know the grass ain’t green?
Don’t you know the world is so mean?

I’ma look to the mountains, look to the mountains, look to the mountains
And I’ma take you to the sea
Look to the mountains, look to the mountains, look to the mountains
And I’m’a take you to the sea
