Compared to the likes of Neo-Soul artists? Musiq Soulchild and Jill Scott, poised songstress Conya Doss offers up her gritty and soulful sound on her first single "Don't Change" off of her eagerly anticipated forthcoming LP, A Pocketful of Purpose. A Cleveland-native, Conya Doss offers a modern spin on vintage sound, seamlessly infusing her music with an eclectic blend of soul, blues, rock, jazz, and r&b. Doss has built a solid reputation over the years as the modern benchmark for any young female artist, and her forthcoming LP A Pocketful of Purpose is a testament to that. Commenting on being labeled a Neo-Soul artist, Conya Doss quips back, "If they want to label me in the Neo-Soul movement they can, but to me this soul music is nothing new."
With beauty, grace, and confidence, Doss has composed an 11-song compilation of warm and personal tracks that are full of soul with huge melodies. The skillful arrangement of horns, strings, and piano riffs suit her finely crafted lyrics about love, life and pursuing your dreams. "Don't Change" is a smooth, mid-tempo flow that syndicated radio host Michael Baisden has already deemed an "instant classic", demonstrating the songbird?s emotional smarts and directness. Reknowed producers Frank McComb, Myron Davis, and Rodney Jones serve as the main producers on A Pocketful of Purpose along with newcomer Dre King.
Already featured in various publications, Vibe Magazine, USA Today, Complex Magazine, and BET.com, to name a few, Conya Doss continues to delight audiences and garner massive praise on the Neo-Soul Music scene. Music veteran DJ Jazzy Jeff has described Doss as "A whole lotta soul in a beautiful package!" and Billboard Magazine R&B Soul Editor Gail Mitchell notes, "Doss is an enchanting and engaging voice on the Soul Music scene, whose slight rasp adds to her organic vibe."
Doss, who juggles her responsibilities as teacher, mother and artist, uses inspiration from all aspects of her life to infuse her material with bolts of creativity. "It has been a challenge trying to effectively balance all of these roles, but I've been patient with my latest project," explains the songbird. All of Doss' album titles are authentically steeped in the spirit of growth and change and A Pocketful of Purpose is no exception. "Every aspect of this personal body of work has a purpose that I hope people will embrace and gain something meaningful from."
