ABOUT DORIE PRIDE
Dorie Pride is a gifted poetess who spreads Seeds Of LIGHT through her music. She has been called the BOB DYLAN of this generation because of her prolific timely observations on the human condition. She weaves thought provoking stories on our social tapestry beckoning humanity to listen to the silent cries of the desolate. ‘SHE NEVER ASKS’, is a prime example of one of the nameless, faceless people Dorie paints with her androgynous, smoky voice and acoustic guitar, reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, bring this story to life . Yet, Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Goin’ On’ and Stevie Wonder’s ‘Inner Vision’ come to mind when listening to her work on this sophomore effort.
The passion that reeks from her soul as she paints pictures in her live performances captures the listener in a way that is up front and personal. As if she knows what buttons to push to wake up the sleeping giant that lies within every person. Her commitment to stirring social consciousness remains solid .She lays out the crumbling condition of the human race and the dying planet before us to examine our participation or lack of it.

This 10 track CD Produced by: Kamau Seitu flows like a river of tears and joy with many wonderful, relevant, thought provoking moments. It is simply- Timeless…
