ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
D'vora is a published and award-winning SINGER'S SONGWRITER who enjoys writing about everyday observances as well as more universal commentaries on love and life.
COMFORTABLE COMPANY is her second album of original songs, and features 9 different carefully and lovingly chosen singers and 12 musicians, each giving a very special interpretation and talent to her creations, making for a very listenable variety of voices and instrumentation. D'vora has won awards in many song-writing competitions, including the William E. Oliver contest (songs which best express the forward spirit of our times), the Woody Guthrie Festival of Songs (Talking Hayfever Blues, track 6), the Julian Bluegrass Festival (Julian Mountain High, track 4). Her topical songs have appeared in New York's Broadside magazine, Scholastic Books, and the Sierra Club Survival Songbook (Once There Was, track 10), among others.
Here is a brief description of the songs:
COMFORTABLE COMPANY-a day in the life of a dear departed cat
A WOMAN OF VALOR- a new interpretation of an old biblical passage
SLIM JIM- in memory of a friend's life and music
JULIAN MOUNTAIN HIGH- Julian,CA Bluegrass Festival winner
FAMILY-adoption, from both child's and parent's perspective
TALKING HAYFEVER BLUES- speaks for itself!
NOW THAT I LEFT, I'LL BE ALL RIGHT- courage to leave an abusive relationship
THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS- awareness of time passing (New Year, etc.)
COUCH POTATO RAG- instrumental with 2 interweaving melodies
ONCE THERE WAS- ecological disasters and where they are leading
LETTING YOU GO- so hard to do, even after many years
CAMARILLO CAFE- a fun time at a great venue
SONG FOR ANNE- the life,hopes,thoughts,legacy of Anne Frank

Phee Sherline, producer Americana Concerts

Wonderful to listen to, look at, and dig deeper!
Every song is rendered with exacting care, chosen with just the right voices for each piece, every harmony just right.There is both unity and variety to the album- wonderful to listen to, to look at, and to dig deeper to get at the message of "Comfortable Company". Thanks for the
printed words- they're important!

Steve Durfee, Bard Chord, L.A. Songmakers publication

a delightful journey of musical variety
Close your eyes and take this delightful journey of musical variety, but hold on tight- it's an eventful trip! one minute you are comfortably home with a cat- next you're whisked to the Mediterranean, then a hoe-down, and through the worlds of ragtime, blues, talking blues, comedy, waltz, calypso and more. The scenery along the way includes family, tributes, relationships, and life itself, expressed with heavenly harmonies,enchanting instrumentals, and tasteful arrangements. What a grand voyage!

Buddy Elias, Pres. Anne Frank Fonds, Basel, Switzerland

Touched me deep inside
Thank you so much for your CD, and the "Song For Anne". Innumerable projects have been made for Anne, but only very few dedications have moved me and my wife as much as your song. It is beautiful and touched me deep inside- this includes the lyrics as well as the music and the interpretation.
