ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It's been nearly four years since Atlanta based, internationally touring singer/songwriter Doria Roberts has released a CD. But, during her recording hiatus, she has seamlessly transformed her early folk leanings into an infectious blend of acoustic based 'afro-hippie' pop/rock on her latest project "Woman Dangerous".

She says, "I'm a writer first so my lyrical choices haven't changed much, but I really wanted to expand my sound then somehow distill it. The process started at my live shows two years ago. I was taking some time off, doing fewer gigs but experimenting more. For my solo shows, I incorporated a loop station, drum machine and other f/x pedals so I could explore different rhythms and textures on my guitar and create live four part vocal harmonies. Lots of fun. So, I came into the studio last summer with a real taste for fleshing out my songs. Nothing crazy. Just needed to find that balance. I feel like I've offered up something honest, a real effort and reflection of who I am and where I am musically. And, even though it's my sixth album, it feels like a debut or a bigger "back to basics". It's exciting for me to be able to start over."


The "basics" include fluid bottom end provided by Khari Simmons (india.arie), solid, pocket drumming by Tom Knight (TLC, Joi) and Melvin Baldwin (Dionne Farris), sweeping string arrangements and driving, afro-cuban percussion. All parts provided the perfect backdrop for Roberts' often syncopated, percussive acoustic guitar style, counterpoint melodies and spoken word/singsong vocal delivery. Lyrically, it can simply be described as a series of poetic musings on life, love and what sometimes happens in between. She is at times lighthearted, irreverent, and sexy; but, then manages to artfully re-route herself into a stark, deeply mournful, yet, dignified melancholy on quieter, solo tracks.

All I can say is that I LOVE IT!!!!!!
The cd is great! It's almost as good as listening to Doria live. If you dont have it already, you have to get it!

Ron "Ran" Waite - reviewer for All For One

Beautiful CD, from front to back and everything in between
The picture on the cover of the CD is unbelievable, Zack Arias has captured the true beauty that is Doria Roberts. The cover itself should stop you dead in your tracks, but then you put the CD in to listen. You are immediately attracted to her euphonious music. She has chosen to punctuate her fine guitar playing with a variety of beautiful instruments, my favorite being the violin in the song "Perfect"--I didn't know that this song could get any better. Her insightful lyrics paint vivid pictures of love, loss and hope. I enjoyed the harmonies in all the songs as well as the spoken words at the beginning of "Horizon." This is another first-rate product from a uniquely talented singer/songwriter. To quote her song "Caught In The Rain," "whatever I do I want to be good to you"--mission accomplished!

Rockin' sweet CD!
This is a funky, sweet, rockin' CD! I knew Doria when she lived in Philly years ago. It's so great to see how much can happen over the years, from the first CD to now. This CD has a lot of catchy riffs and vocals that will please anyone into rock or folk music.

Excellent cd! Showcases all of Dorias many talents! Variety of styles that keeps
This cd is incredible. The lyrics and and rhythms are very moving and intriguing. There is not one song on this cd that I don't like. It definitely covers the wide range of talents that Doria has. I was very impressed.

Amazing Album
If only there were more stars!!! Doria Roberts is an amazing artist. Soulful, passionate and brilliant. She, by far, is one of the most brilliant artists of this time. I look forward to seeing many more works from this phenominal artist!

This cd is great.
This cd is badass. The sound quality is great, the production is very creative and smooth, and the artist; Doria is a fantastic musician. All the songs are very unique and appealing. I bought this cd when she released it and have been listening to it ever since. Rock on Doria!!

Kristi

This CD is WONDERFUL!
I've watched Doria perform live with just her guitar - and this CD captures the colorful, expressive lyrics and music for which she is known for here in Atlanta. Way to Go Doria!

nikki

perfect doria
This is a great CD to jam out in the car.
Makes me miss my southern roots and live doria shows.

Heather

STUNNING!!!
The CD starts power, teh first three songs are my favorite. Its fire in teh beginning, smooth in the center and just "Perfect" toward the end. Amazing work. Doria is that artist you should have had your eye on along time ago. She keeps pushing to perfection and with this CD, she really nailed it! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
