ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Conya Doss

"Just Because" is Conya's long awaited follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut "a poem about ms. Doss. "Just Because" straddles the fence between studio perfection and a rawness that can only be achieved on a stage in front of a live audience. "Just Because" offers an escape to a crowded room filled with an organic, sensual, funky vibe from tracks one through eleven. The Groove and the licks are reminiscent of a Coltrane staccato, a Sarah Vaughn run and the comport of a Donny Hathaway rift that just wraps around you and hold you comfortably. Oh yeah, Conya is back!

The Eleven-song disc represents an evolution of spirit. From the light, airy, danceable Opening cut "Just Because," to the smoky vibey, "Stay," to the gospel tinged, "Sweet Luv," and the hopeful aspiring, "Miracle." Conya pulls it all from her inner being and puts it on display for the world.

Conya is back - musically, spiritually, soulfully, honestly and her return represents the culmination of a lifetime of experiences committed to song. Born and raised on Stevie Wonder, Angela Winbush, Donnie Hathaway and Minnie Ripperton in the city described as the vanguard of soul, Cleveland Ohio. She has been singing since the age of five and later attended the famed Cleveland School Of The Performing Arts, a school that produced fellow alumnus, Avant. Conya went on to be a leading member of the Cleveland Duo Lyrik comprised of childhood friend Stacy Richardson who currently sings back up for Anthony Hamilton. It was with Lyrik where she really honed her writing skills contributing to such artist as Pop group 3LW. She has also worked with the likes of R&B Soul music's heir apparent, Gerald Levert and super producer and friend Tony Nicholas along with Paul Allen Of PAJAM.

This divergence of soul music that pulls from the influences of the past while establishing a nu is what Conya was born to do. Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill, Eric Roberson and now Conya Doss are the leaders of this Nu-Soul Movement!

Sultry, soulful, and from the heart. Conya is a talented sistah!
Wow, where do I begin? I loved every cut on the CD, but if I just had to pick two favorites, it would have to be Stay and Day by Day. I would say Ms. Doss is one of the best kept secrets in the industry. I'm hoping to see her perform live soon. In the words of of old folks, the girl can SANG!!!

SOUL MUSIC

LOVED IT
NEO SOUL, or just SOUL, is going strong...especially on this album. The album's title track, Just Because is even better than the version I hear on XM radio. This sultry album has a ring of honesty with an underground or untouched feel--meaning, it sounds in no way, shape, or form manufactured. I must admit, I play the last track over and over and over...you get the point. THis is a great album for chilling, riding in your car, or listening to with a "good friend".

Amazing
I put this cd in my pc at work and have not taken it out yet. Your voice is amazing. Each track is smooth, mellow, and produced with care. I can't wait to get your other projects.

The CD "Just Because" is excellent! I love the music and the lyrics. Conya's CD is absolutely worth anybody’s time who truly values and appreciates good music. I look forward to her next project.

Simply Phenomenal !!!!
This is the kind of album I can listen to from beginning to end without skipping any tracks. This is a beautifully crafted album by a silky-voiced songstress who captures my ear, heart, mind, and soul. Excellent production without any pointless skits, stupid interludes, or other wastes of time and space. Ms. Doss can and should take her rightful place among the elite of Neo/Nu-Soul. I look forward to adding her other albums to my collection.

Absolutely Awsome
I waited for 2 years to get some more of what she gave on her first Project and she came thorugh like a hot knife through butter with Just Because. Stay is the bomb, as well as the rest of the material. It's one of those Cd's you can listen to from beginning to end and just love every bit of it.

Music's Best Kept Secret!
A friend of mine introduced me to the talents of this artist with this particular CD. From the moment I began listening, I found myself drawn into its lyrics and moved by the electrifying rhythms as each track played. The talents of this artist are truly the music industry's best kept secret. Music as such is very difficult to find and this CD should be treasured.

I'm feel'n it!
I so happy to hear more of Conya's music. I really like this one. Damn That is my favorite! I wish there were just a few more cuts. This was a teaser. Looking forward to seeing Ms. Doss do some more Great Thangs!!!
