I happened to come across this album while looking for another artist & thought why not give it a try....... well i'm glad i did.
It's one of those smooth soulful albums that will have you hooked from start to finish......honestly it's that good!!
There are echoes of Mary J Blige as she sweetly sings her songs notably "Starship".
If you can get your hands on this rare gem (i had to order mine & a friends from the States) you're in for pure musical pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Meet Conya 7 Feb. 2008
By M. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I finally have all 3 of Conya's albums and they are all great. Perfect to put them in a playlist together and put it on shuffle. It just all fits. Whether it's a mellow groove to enjoy with that special someone, or an up-tempo groove, she handles it well.

This is her first CD and I think she made a great start, each CD after gets better and better so also check out "Just Because" and "Love Rain Down".

Some reviewers mentioned that she's trying to be Jill Scott, I totally disagree. There's nothing in her songs, voice, or style that remind you of Jill Scott. Honestly, all the comparisons to other artists just don't seem fair. If Conya came first, we'd say Mary was trying to be like her...and so on and so on. If you're comparing just to give some and idea of her style, that's one thing. But if you're comparing because you're saying she's "trying" to mimmick someone else, simply not true. If you do get to know Conya, you'll see that she does have her own style...it's just a little more mellow. She's not over-the-top hitting high notes left and right...just soft and smooth. I even made a playlist of all of her ballads and you can play it in ANY order, and there's NO threat of breakin' the mood. ;-)

Anyway, if you can find it, definitely pick it up.

Fave Tracks:
Starship - Great remake, I love the song and her version of it
Selfish One (interlude) - It's short but nice...Conya has a way with words
That's Not Love - Catchy ballad
So Fly
Heaven (duet)
Smile Again - This is my FAVORITE on the CD.

If you're unsure about Conya, then I'd say start off with her 2nd CD "Just Because" (it's easier to find if you can't get a hold of this one). If you're already a fan, then pick it up and prepare to be dazzled!

I noticed Conya has a pattern of releasing an album every 2 years..."Poem" in 2002; "Just Because" in 2004; "Love Rain Down" in 2006. I hope that we can expect something from her this year...

Conya Doss is dope! Her sound reminds me of Lauren Hill. She actually sounds like her on some of her cuts. Very soulful, Her lyrics hint that she's been through what many of us has gone through in the love department. Her sound also mirrors fantastic artists like Jill Scott, Amel, Roberta Flack. If you like this sound, as I do, take a ride with Conya.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 15 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this because other reviewers ... compared her to Ledisi, Jill Scott, and Erykah Badu. She may have a voice that compares to those artists, but she has absolutely none of the creativity and originality of those three giants. This cd is boring and monotonous. Every song sounds the same. A good voice just isn't enough. A lot of women can blow, but more is needed to separate a good singer from the rest of the pack. What makes those other artists that I named so great is that they take risks and incorporate other types of music like reggae, hip-hop, jazz, go-go, and even latin music into their work. They are not just singers, but artists!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album Ms. Doss!!! 25 Feb. 2005
By D. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have just been introduced to Ms. Doss as an artist and I have to admit that I am quite impressed. I'm surprised that this album has been out for nearly 3 years and yet this artist never gets any airplay! But I guess with the airwaves cluttered with all of the latest hip-hop music there's no room for a "true" Neo-Soul artist. This is a true "breath of fresh air" from what is being played on the radio nowadays. Some of the cuts kind of remind you of Erykah, Mary J. and Faith, but make no mistake-this girl has her own style and her own flow. Stand-out cuts to me include "You Really Hurt Me", a remake of Norman Connor's "Starship", "All Because of You", and "Smile Again". This is an artist who's really being slept on. I hope that she can eventually sign to a major label that can get her music out to the mainstream 'cause I believe that she will develop a strong fanbase who can really appreciate some good music. I may have just discovered Ms. Doss, but I will be looking for more from this artist. I'm currently trying to get a copy of her new cd, "Just Because". I've heard the title cut, and I know that if the rest of the album is anything like it then it's gonna be a great album as well. Easy, laid-back, feel-good music to groove to that stirs the soul. I commend you Ms. Doss for a great album. I'm just sorry that I'm just getting to hear your music 'cause if I'd known anything about you 3 years ago then I'd have definitely supported your work. This cd is a "must have" for serious fans of Neo-Soul music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Conya Doss: Get to Know Her 8 Mar. 2003
By Shawn Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are artists who pop-up on the scene and disappear, never leaving a trace of their soul on the sonic landscape. This cannot happen to Conya Doss. Her music is friendly without being fake, and 'real' minus the ghetto posturing many of her R&B contemporaries struggle to maintain.
Now, what makes her important to the nu-soul scene is that she effectively mixes nu-soul flavor with an R&B singing style. There aren't many singers that can pull that off. Do not expect Jill Scott or Kelly Price, people! She has a niche all her own, and a savvy, sultry way about her that comes through in every song.
Doss paints a vivid picture of a young woman who balances her positive identity on the scales of old and new love. The album opens with two very different songs about love- 'Good Good' and 'you Really Hurt Me', which sets the stage for the tug and pull of emotions Doss gives us throughout the album. She gives new life to the Norman Connors classic 'Starship', literally claiming it as her own. And she cheats us miserably with all-too-short gems like 'Selfish One' and 'Zoning In My Dome' (which is why I unfortunately can't give it a 5 star rating).
As the listener, the narrative does have the feel of a very well written poem, with all the highs and lows you could expect. She doesn't leave us brokenhearted, no. The best and most beautiful track is 'Heaven'. Simply put, 'Heaven' is a wonderful ballad that feels like an old soul classic. Doss lets you know she believes in love, with all its bumps and bruises along the way.
She's also a great live performer, I recently saw her @ SOBs (Feb 28th), she gave the crowd a hot performance with her funked out band and lovely (read: mm, mm, mm!) backup singers.
This album will certainly stand out in your collection!
