    BREAK DOWN ON ME 
    (Jason Mitchell) 

    I found you on the lonely shelf 
    While at the all-night store 

    We got together on a new thing 
    Though we had met before 

    We tried to keep that thing on track 
    Me looking forward, you looking back 

    Never look back if you want the future 
    'Cause you're bound to miss on what's today 

    There's a story inside you 
    But it's too hard for you to say 

    It took a minute to settle in 
    This wasn't gonna be whole again 

    You had to break down on me 
    You had to break down on me 
    A cruel illusion of a fantasy 
    You had to break down on me 

    We tried to keep that thing on track 
    Me looking forward, you looking back 

    Never look back if you want the future 
    You'll rob yourself of what's today 
    And you can't relive it anyway 
    Just an attic filled with your dismay 

    You had to break down on me

NOTES
Break Down on Me is a bit of a departure from our funky sound. This one is more southern soul with rock and blues elements.

Released July 2, 2019
Written by Jason Mitchell. Featuring Eric Mobley (vocals, keyboards), Jason Mitchell (guitars, vocals), Michael Williams (bass, vocals), Jeff Pivin (drums), Ian White (percussion), Marvin Scott (sax), and Rich Cross (trumpet). Recorded by John Herrera at Clamsville Studios. Produced by Jason Mitchell and John Herrera. Horn arrangements by Jason Mitchell, Marvin Scott, and Rich Cross.

Calumet was formed in 2001 by Eric Mobley and Jason Mitchell out of their love for classic funk and soul. Their first album, Retro Energy (2002), staked out a unique sound, and the band was a presence in Phoenix for years, playing shows with Kool & the Gang, Al Green, & George Benson. After a 9 year break, Calumet has been reborn and is once again bringing the funk to Arizona and beyond.
