ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CAPSULE REVIEW

Octavia Harris, Radical Sabbatical

One thing is clear from listening to the Portland based rapper, R&B singer and multi-talented hip hop artist’s high impact mix of heavy thumping grooves, old school soul atmospheres and hard hitting lyrics: Harris has truly been delivered from darkness in her life, and is excited about sharing her glorious coming out party and newfound joy of the Lord with the world. Over the course of fourteen completely infectious, soul-stirring tracks produced by some of the hip-hop world’s top studio cats (Doc Sizzo, F Major, Al Fraser, Sharpsounds, Ansane Productions, Hy-grade and others), she shares her deliverance in both personal and universal ways. The first lines of the opening title track say it all: “It’s a new day…it’s a new me.” She raps about spending more time with “the God who was living on the inside of me” and on “Enjoy The Sun” explores her wonder at the majesty of God’s mysterious creation. Beyond sharing the gospel message and the story of her own redemption, Harris also creates, on tracks like “For The Ladies,” powerful empowerment messages for females who struggle with their self esteem. The grooves and melodies flow seamlessly so the listener can focus on the message. While younger fans can enjoy the hard hitting danceable beats, Harris also taps into the classic R&B vibe on liquid soul tracks like “Different Kinda Love,” which almost find her channeling the cool, seductive spirit of Curtis Mayfield. You’ll want to take a sabbatical with this infectious, potentially life transforming album. –Jonathan Widran (freelance writer)

A Must Buy!
All I can say about this project is wow!
Very refreshing and its obvious that Octavia put her all into this project.
The level of transparency is awesome!

The "Radical Sabatical" intro is a great way to get the joint started and makes you anticipate what the rest of the album will sound like.

"God in you" is one of the best songs I've heard in a while. You can't help but to move ya feet.

"November 04"
This song is off the chain for so many reasons. The real life testimony allows you to connect with Octavia on a whole new level. Not to mention the track is loco!
"Back to tha Crib" is real talk and "all around the world" is a crazy colaboration!
Also two of my fav songs on this album.

Over all I give this cd 5 stars b/c there something on here for men and women, boys and girls, young and old.
We need more artist to put out this type of life music.
Good stuff.
Octavia!!!

Girl, I just absolutely LOVE you CD ! ! !
Helloooo Octavia ! !
Girl, I just absolutely LOVE you CD ! ! ! It is so awesome..! And I mean that...truly. All of the tracks are hittin' and so many people need to hear what you're saying and how you're saying it and WHY you're saying it! !
I plan to order a couple more of the "TRINITY PACK"s for Christmas presents to some young people in my family. I don't even want to just burn what I have because I want them to see the cover and read the messages and see how beautiful you are and that with all that you have...you give the CREDIT...the HONOR...and the PRAISE to GOD ALMIGHTY ! ! ! Girl...! ! you KNOW where your help come from....and you ain't ashamed to claim it, show it, sing it, shout it,
rap it; tell the world about it
GOD IS GOOD
GOD IS GOOD

Apostle Nailah Gilliam

I love your new CD. In fact, I love all three.
Grace and Peace, Sister Octavia,
I love your new CD. In fact, I love all three. I discovered your site when I was trying to find some positive influence for a young woman in my Ministry who was struggling with lesbianism. Since that time, I have become one of your biggest fans. I am Senior Pastor of a ministry where many have received deliverance from many of the issues you sing about. I also love rap with a positive message, as we have two awesome Gospel rappers in our ministry: HAK RAW and SKEEZ. Keep up the good work, my Sister in Christ. I've turned the members of Praise to the King Ministries on to your music. You've got fans here in Wilmington, DE. Please keep us in your prayers as we work to combat the darkness with the light of God's truth. Lesbianism has spread like wildfire among the young women in our city. It's at epidemic proportions; and few have the courage to speak up or minister to them.
Apostle Nailah Gilliam

ps. I realized Monday night, while riding home from a service and playing your new CD, that I, too, am in need of a "Radical Sabbatical." I had just heard Pastor Sherly Brady preach that night about not becoming "weary" in our well doing. Your song reminded me that I only have one life and that I need to break away from all those other things and spend some quality time of refreshing with my Daddy! Thanks for the inspiration.

McClure Brother's Official Review
IT'S A MASTERPIECE, It's SOULFUL, The Testimony is REAL. Octavia Harris is a true LEADER and VISIONARY, the flow is top notch and she's even singing on the album!!!
Track 02 "Enjoy The Sun" speaking on how to be thankful for what you have right now smaple...Most importantly my friends you must believe in the SON, cause when he steps foot on the earth man the KINGDOM HAS COME....Track 04 November 04 is O's personal TESTIMONY and it proves she is a true WOMAN OF GOD who's not afraid of her past, she reaches out to WOMEN OF ALL AGES TO EDUCATE THEM ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY!!! bottom line is GO COP THE CD!!!

Ladies you've been looking for a CD that represents YOU!!!
Fellas, you've been wanting something Positive for your woman to speak

THE WAIT IS OVER, 14 BANGIN TRACKS OF TESTIMONY AND GOOD MUSIC, THIS IS NOT ONLY A CLASSIC, IT'S WHAT WE NEED AS A PEOPLE!!!
