"Love Rain down" Conya Doss's third album may be her best. That's saying a lot since her first two are very strong as well. The thirteen tracks are all co-written by Ms Doss and the entire set has a down home soulful feel to it. The opening track "Tell me why" is a nice acoustic soul piece where Conya talks about loving someone who doesn't love you back.
"Those were the days" is a bluesy tune that reminiscences about the era that she grew up in. Conya's heart and soul is sprinkled throughout each and every track. Especially on "Sign", a melancholy tune that has Conya wanting her man to notice her feelings for him. On "Why did you", Conya goes for a jazzy samba type of mood to express her feelings about moving on after enduring the pain of a broken heart. The album wraps up with "Get on my nerves", a duet with co-producer Myron. Together they the role of a couple dealing with communication breakdown and just going through the motions. "Love rain down" pays tribute to the musical influences that had an impact on her such as The Doobie brothers, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield and Bonnie Raitt. Conya isn't interested in making cookie-cutter music and "Love rain down" is a clear indication of that. She will not sell her soul to the majors for the lure of a lucrative record deal. Instead preferring to stick to the formula that works for her. That formula is heartfelt lyrics about love and life and good old fashioned soul music. Once you start to listen, that formula will work for you.
