ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIOGRAPHY Of ALICE PARRIS

Ms. Parris began writing poetry at seventeen. At this juncture, she won her first award on a collegiate level. She wrote poetry for every poignant moment in her life for the next thirty-three years. Assembled into a journal, the book of these poems is called SOULGASM.

The audio-book SOULGASM consists of four parts of bumping music, with Ms. Parris reading her book. This CD is sure to excite its listeners and is a one-of-a-kind- offering.
Ms. Parris' poetry speaks of surviving drug and sex addiction, (hippie and beyond) as well as struggling with physical and mental illness. She gives the listener a glimpse into the spirit realm of an ex-fortune-teller. Ms. Parris states that, today, she is kept by the grace of a loving and merciful Heavenly Father.

Her poems range from riveting sensuality to a high degree of spirituality, as well as the good, bad and ugly. Ms. Parris hopes that by exposing her own frailties, someone else who has lived the same moment, or circumstance, and is presently struggling with it, will be encouraged to know that there is hope.

Ms. Parris states, "Extravagant pain and exquisite joy are but standard fare at the banquet of creativity." Ms. Parris'other works can be found in anthologies in the United Kingdom under Forward Press with its imprints of Poetry Now, Anchor Books, and Triumph House. She has been published in magazines in Canada: Open Minds Quarterly and Writer's Circle Online( NISA- Northern Initiative for Social Action) Several of her poems are soon to be released in an anthology by Black Expressions.

She has been published in India in the anthology Explorers as well as the celebrated journal;The Taj Mahal Review. Her latest book of poetry entitled SILENCED VOICES SPEAK can be obtained online through cyberwit.net in India. Ms. Parris' site www.soulgasm.org is undergoing transformation and will soon be selling e-books of Soulgasm as well as Silenced Voices Speak and her CD, as well.

Her poetry can also be read on poetry websites that feature various themes including Timbooktu, Redwebz,(under the name of Haliwa-Saponi) Holistic Junction, Raven Institute, Subtle Tea,. Sacramento Poetry, Art & Music, Asian American Poetry, Cracked Lenses and AMAG ( an awareness magazine for the upwardly mobile African American.)

Rave reviews of the CD SOULGASM can be read online written by reviewers from Holistic Junction and Subtle Tea.(C.LLoyd-Bailey and David Herrle, respectively)

Deep reaching, soulful, searching and finding.
Alice Paris' 'Sougasm' guides you through the journey of her soul, while leading you into the darker corners of yourself that you have not yet fully explpored.

The CD is another way to savor an artist's ways-with- words about love.
Parris is an exceptionally gifted artist! The CD is an excellent companion piece to the book since she provides another way to savor her spectacular ways-with-words about love and loss through the sense of hearing.

Hearing her eloquently spoken prose, I found the compilation of Alice Parris to
Hearing her eloquently spoken prose, I found the compilation of Alice Parris to be enlightening, revealing and seductive. From the psychedelic 60s, Alice brings forth a renewed vision of female passion and strength to modern-day times. A superb, audible reading that is befitting to poetry cafes from eras and eras ago - Soulgasm would be an enhancement to any art gala encompassing erotica, emotion or innerpeace.


Soulgasm, by Alice Parris is empowerment of woman - an evolution of sexuality - a story of love, life, and ascension of feminine higher consciousness, perception and acquiescence.


The following is a compilation of selected, compelling verses from Soulgasm:


Track One - Eclipse of the Soul is about the many shades of life, passion and embracement thereof: '...soft and warm is love's self-drawn blood bath....' 'we become transformed in love's crucible...'


Track Two - Soul Sojourn describes the strong, middle-aged woman: '...hiding earth's drabbed olive dress...' '...what place have they amongst orchid-centered pieces?' '...Please love me thru closed door...' 'my days in a metabolife haze...and my nights in a soma-coma...' '...I cry out to become like the phoenix risen from the ashes of my half-century life...' '...purpose pours in living waters and the heart of dust comes forth alive...' '...draw up into essence in spirit well...' '...in my desert places, the lord touches me...not because he loves desert places, because he fills empty pots...' '....I have emerged like Lazareth....poetry has been created from the dust of my soul....' '...to love or not to love...with the scale of love weighed in eternity...'


Track Three - Soulmate Chronicles - about love's loss: '...my heart is a wounded dove...' '...perhaps there was something that I missed because it was in plain view...' '...my spirit is an eagle powerful and rare...' '...your sad face reminded me of my own, two jagged souls reaching out to one another...' '....my thoughts of you are like an opium cloud...' '...no current could override the strength you gave these wings of mine....' '...if I cannot have you, I will not die...' '...eternal in your eyes....'


Track Four - Soulgasm is the acceptance of innerpeace and woman's divine erotica - fulfilled: '...consumed imperial flame fire of love...' '...penetrate my eyes, perceive my heart....' '...my body becoming the host of the ghost of memory...' '...a fortress fortified with wise walls of protection...'


Soulgasm is the bridge to soul awakening. A powerful elation of the innerspirit's journey, I would recommend Soulgasm to those seeking mental, spiritual, and sexual growth - men and women. To listen to Soulgasm is to listen to the heartpains and subconsciousness of women everywhere.


About Alice Parris: Published in 35 anthologies in the UK, the Explorers' anthology from India, and numerous publications, print magazines and online sites, Alice Parris began writing poetry at the age of 17. Throughout the years, she has accumulated a wealth of personal reflections, thus overcoming circumstance through the wisdom of human interaction. It is through her works, that she not only writes about self, but also inspires a new dawn of realization for others.

Reminiscent of 60's coffeehouse fare with a twist. Her artistic poetry intertwi
Vivid words paint vibrant pictures that send my mind on a trip. Could she have possibly orchestrated this bounce in my step? Her powerful verbal imagery weaves a kaleidoscope of dream-like spun sugar, with a splash of gold. Can both pain and pleasure be turned on their proverbial ear? I marvel as Alice Parris breathes life into the answer.

In Soulgasm, Alice Parris discovers the woman she really is
Soulgasm by Alice Parris is a poetic journal in four parts, each part packed with powerful words, words that, even as Parris reads, her throaty voice punctuated by musical accompaniment, seem to pierce the reader’s mind. In this her first volume of poetry, she uses simple, crystal-clear imagery and never wastes a syllable. Filled not only with ethnic pride but also with universal longing, her poems demonstrate an intuitive knowledge and mastery of enjambment, rhythm, syncopation, and the kind of deep-throated booty-talk at which many black writers excel. Her words, autobiographical throughout the CD, make her the most vulnerable, when she states that poetry has been created from the dust of her soul. Why her soul? Why not her spirit? Well, it is at this juncture that the Christian message becomes strong, and Alice Parris discovers through soulgasm the beloved woman she really is.
