Conya Doss’ “CLEAR”
Ohioan Conya Doss’ voice reflects the sounds of the past, present, as well as what is yet to come. Ms. Doss makes it no secret that her musical taste is a mix of genres (classical, soul, blues etc…), in which she describes good music as being “Like Gumbo, it taste better with time, the next day and the next….” This is apparent in her most recent project “CLEAR.” With undeviating smoothness, soul, rhythm, and melody, the poised songstress has composed a 10 song compilation of perfectly placed instrumentation intertwined with her smooth vocals, with a hint of rasp, provides a journey into the world of accountability, vulnerability, capability, as well as accepting life’s offerings.
Doss’ first single “I’m Trying”, Conya croons over a groovy, funky bass, mid-tempo flow, which a host of highly respected musical gurus have coined “Another Doss Classic,” demonstrating that the songbird’s consistent quality music stands with the best of them.“'I'm Trying’ is dear to me because it speaks volumes as where my state of mind is right now. Forever a student of life, trying to learn more, trying to live better, and trying to do better. Just trying to be...” Another standout tune is“Get Off Of Your…. Doss” that gives a 70ish disco groove that is guaranteed to make you wanna dance. and “Hello” provides creative songwriting letting us know that it’s never too late to find true love. “Given You My Love” is another banger consists of a smooth jazzy tune compelling love one not to close other out that they don’t have to weather storms alone!! Myron Davis and Rodney Jones serve as the main producers on “CLEAR” in addition to producer Aaron Hardin.
All of Doss’ album titles are authentically steeped in the spirit of growth and change “Clear” does just that. It Focuses on being transparent and clearing thoughts to music in order to be better aligned with ones spiritual self.
