Drink You Up

Album: Turn It On (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This steamy song was penned by Eli Young Band vocalist Mike Eli and guitarist James Young along with Jeremy Stover and Ross Copperman. The latter pair ended up being the producers on the Turn It On EP. Drummer Chris Thompson told Billboard magazine: "They came out on the road with us, and we had come off the stage from doing our show, and Ross had already recorded a demo on his computer. The sound was really interesting and really different."

    "That was the catalyst for us choosing them to produce the EP," he added. "We really liked the sound that they were hearing for us. Then, when we started working together, they work so quickly, and we get others' musical references. It was a great process all around."
