This woman CANNOT make a bad CD. That's it. LOL, she has STILL got it! In fact, she's continually getting better. Conya delivers again. Wow, how much I want the world to embrace her...yet at the same time, I would never want her to have to succumb to a mainstream sound.
I just love Conya...love her voice...love her songs...LOVE her lyrics, which is a running theme through all 4 of her CDs, yes FOUR! If you're new to Conya, you will not be disappointed with this CD. I would also recommend picking up her Just Because CD (her 2nd release), which is my personal favorite of the 4. And if you happen to be able to pick up "A Poem for Ms. Doss", her debut, get that too! (Hopefully, you can get it at a reasonable price, but I think it's pretty hard to find these days.)
Conya is SO SO SO great at writing and singing ballads I just can't explain. This woman truly has the ability to write about situations that we all can relate to - but it's not just that, she delivers the songs with such emotion, you can feel it. Almost every love song of hers reminds me of a personal experience of mine...I love songs that touch me like that.
One thing I love about "still..." is that she is continuing to venture out with more uptempo songs like she did in her 3rd CD, "Love Rain Down". I love her ballads, but the variety of uptempo songs are definitely welcome.

How About Us
If you've never heard of Conya, I would compare her almost to Mary J Blige, but without all the screaming that Mary can sometimes (often) do. And this comparison is not to say that Conya is trying to sound like Mary, it's just to give you a frame of reference of her voice, and style. She's more mellow, smooth, sensual, and groovy than Mary and that's what I love about her.
Pick this up and be made happy :-)
