Album Notes
In 2007, providence brought the four members of The Black Doves together in San Antonio, Texas. Within only months of formation, the band was selected to showcase at the South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin. A few months later, they were selected to perform on the local leg of The Van’s Warped Tour. The loyal fans who have witnessed their live performances understand why.

Melding towering vocals, sweet acoustic guitars, scorching leads, and thundering rhythm this band transcends simple categorization. A rock band? Yes. Pop band? Yes. But The Black Doves are so much more than that. Listen to only one song and you’ve only scratched the surface; Listen to all of them, and you’ll hear the blending of the countless influences of those who made them. The Black Doves are ready to take flight. Climb on, hold on tight and enjoy the ride.

Making their way from unknown band to superstars...
received the new album from The Black Doves entitled Moments of Clarity recently and was rather pleased. I had seen the CD in the local library but had yet to pick it up. So when the CD was delivered to me, I immediately put it on.
I had known their song "I Wonder If She Knows" from hearing it on the one of the Muzak stations that a business near me uses for their background music. But I never actually knew who did the song. When I saw that the CD by The Black Doves actually contained that song, and then the song started playing in my CD player, I knew that is had to be fate that the CD came to me.

The Black Doves is a band that can be described as part rock band and part pop band. The band's sound is very listener friendly and several of the songs on the band's CD could make their way onto commercial radio. Steve Wilson, a man who has spent a large part of his life as a musician, fronts the band. Steve made a name for himself in certain circles for the acoustic rock music that he used to write. With The Black Doves, his acoustic sound has been transformed into something a little harder, as the rest of the band help to turn his songs into full-fledged rock songs. Along with Steve Wilson on Vocals and both Acoustic and Electric Guitar, the rest of The Black Doves consists of Brent Matthews on Drums, Danny Trevino on Lead Guitar, and Frank Rodriguez on Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals.

Since Steve Wilson had started as a songwriter writing songs that were in the folk genre, it makes some sense that some of the songs on Moments of Clarity have a folk-rock feel. The song "I Wonder If She Knows" is one of the moments on the album that still contains that folk feeling to it. "Like I Do" is another song that captures that folk feeling.

Although some of the other songs on Moments of Clarity can also be described as "folk-y," the album really cannot be described as a folk release. Wilson and the rest of The Black Doves deliver the songs with enough energy that the album never slips into a laid-back feel that most folk rock often seems to have.
In fact, there are a few tracks on this album that cannot be described as "folk" at all. "Give It Some Thought" is one such song. The track is one of the songs on the album that help to bring up the energy level. Other songs that can also be described as straight-out rock include "Learn To Live," and "Ask Me To," a song that could be described as a "power ballad".

Steve Wilson and the rest of The Black Doves have shown with this release that they possess the talent to create a very solid album such as this. Each song on the 2008 release by The Black Doves entitled Moments of Clarity makes the album an enjoyable listening experience.

Unaware of just how good it was, I had ignored this album for almost two months. But getting it in the mail gave me a reason to discover what I had passed by. I suggest everyone take the time to discover this album by one of the best new rock bands that is currently making their way from unknown band to superstars.
