Truth on CD

  There's something about Priscilla. Though Priscilla has been described as neo-soul and as a cross between Jill Scott and Laura Nyro, Priscilla's debut album 'Truth', has transcended the need to categorize. Brought together with a sense of individuality, 'Truth' is an erotic, yet sweet, effortlessly brilliant album that erases any lines between color or genre. It simply presents the listener with a refreshingly clear yet free sound. The poetry in the songs seems to come together with grace and clarity, a deep sense of soul, and a jazz sensibility driving the listener to question their own truth. Priscilla sings with such ease and intimacy you have the feeling she is speaking exclusively with you. She plays with sound and space like falling leaves, moving gently, yet with great intention, around and through each other in time. Courtney Hard (ASCAP) was blown away by her lyrical style, and her voice was noticed right away by Timmy Regesford, (A&R for Dream Work records) who was shocked at the soul her voice carried. 'Truth' features the production talents of Rod Clemmons (Verdict Records in NYC), as well as the song writing of Priscilla, who wrote all but one song. 'Truth' seeks to establish a clearly multi- talented artist with her truth telling and her ideas about love. 'What is life without love?' questions Priscilla. 'These songs are talking about my experiments with my truth and love.' ...more about truth from Priscilla... The album is named ' truth' because it is my truth. And using the words from Gandhi, 'this is my experiment with truth'.The fist song on the CD 'So tenderly' was the first song that I ever felt was truly given to me as a gift. I was picking up the phone to call my mom, when I got this Chorus in my head,...'It all began so tenderly...so on' immediately I hung the phone up and grabbed my tiny recorder. Then I closed my eyes as suddenly this vision came into my mind. Somehow I knew that if I continued to watch this scenario in my mind I would be able to keep singing to song. So I trusted it and began to sing. When I finished I had a finished song, and neither the lyrics or the melody have changed yet.That is what I call God talking. The concept of 'Truth' is basically my experience with the love of my life, John. So from the beginning of the album to the end you can really see how my ideas of love changed. From 'fantasy', where I truly question love and if it is real and wonder why it brings so much pain with it, to the real pivotal song on the CD, 'Fear in for Tea'. This song is a true prayer or anthem for me every day, teaching me to move through the 'dark nights of the soul'and understand that they are here to show us who we are. 'The Sweetest' was written to express my deep love and gratitude for John and our relationship. I truly do feel loved every day. He is my best friend. I guess my goal for this CD is to give you a true representation of who I am. I hope that through my journey, you see your own journey and realize that we are all one, one love, one universe, all here together learning more every moment. Hopefully learning to love ourselves exactly how we are, perfect. 'Beautiful' is for all of you. Truth and love, PRISCILLA.
