ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THANK U FOR SUPPORTING THE POWER OF THIS PROJECT!!!!!!!

QUEEN GODIS - (pron: kwen-god-iz)

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Queen God-Is one of the most gifted, lyrically insightful, thought provoking, and dynamic spoken word artists of our time. Her gifts however, extend way beyond the realm of poetry. Her debut album, Power U! , highlights Queen as co-producer, budding engineer, MC, and singer who hooks up both lead and background vocals with her awe-inspiring sense of melody and harmony.

Her work incorporates Hip Hop, soul, rock and even some theater- bringing forth a powerfully unique energy that wows crowds of every demographic. An entertainer, seeker and conveyor of truth, her socially conscientious yet accessible lyrics (from the hood to the burbs, projects to penthouse) invoke chills and undeniably leave you changed.

Touching an array of audiences, GodIs showcases at venues that range from public schools and cozy cafes, to huge concert and university lecture halls both nationally and abroad. She has and continues to grace the stage with some of the top artists of our lifetime. Even more significantly, she dedicates a great portion of her time empowering youth all over the world with her work.

In 2001, Queen was hand selected to appear as feature performance poet on part of Les Nubians' (Afro-European singing duo) international tour route. Her work also appears on two tracks on the album: Les Nubians Presents Echoes: Chapter One Nubian Voyager - released in the Fall of 2005. Rave reviews inspired the label to re-release this record as a poetry book with CD in the summer of 2006.

ABOUT THE ALBUM:
(FULL LENGTH ALBUM PLUS MINI-CHAPBOOK WITH ARTWORK...WELL WORTH YOUR HARD..OR EASILY EARNED MONEY...)

Perhaps womanHood is as a landscape. If so, the album Power U! is a wonderful journey through its diverse "terrains." Queen delivers raw imagery that brings to light fresh revelations about society and its relationship to the female body. Witty and intelligent, yet boldly honest, her mission is to use the “beautiful struggle” of womanhood to help us reexamine how we view ourselves, our communities and our relationships.

In her own words: “Power U!” is a multi-medium journey through the sacred feminine (mountains, peaks and valleys - complete with flood and drought). It is a never-ending poem and an open love letter to self. It is bold, beautiful and honest! Each track started out as a poetic statement connected by theme and vision. Later, through a series of lessons and experiences communicated to me how they would best be conveyed. The result: song, rhyme, spoken word, story and more singing...It is a reflection, a resurrection, a revelation. It is raw...The vocals, structure and ideas are as “Lioness” - wild, fierce, untrained and untamed. It is in-tune, timely, and moving. It induces goosebumps (even for me). It is HIP and POWERFUL work!”

On this powerful album, Queen navigates a hip yet humble path through the 'ugly' to guide us back to the beautiful -a journey that millions of people all over the world (regardless of race, class, faith and gender) face everyday.

Worth the Wait!!!!
I remember seeing Queen GodIs performing in Brooklyn, freestyling spoken word and getting so into it....it was powerful...and I never forgot her name or her presence. I checked in record stores every couple of months to see if she had dropped...but there was nothing. Now, that I finally have her album...it was definitely worth the wait and she is just as powerful and life-changing as I remember. Excellent work....I am honored to say I am her fan!

Smooth melodic grooves and powerful lyrics!
Many artists have tried and failed to make an album that could potentially change someone's life. It's amazing that Queen GodIs in her debut release "Power U" has made an album that is truly that inspiring.

I remember being a teenager and the older Gods would say... "Don't let the Power U power you", but it is nearly impossible not to be seduced by her smooth melodic grooves and powerful lyrics.

This CD is a must have for those who have eagerly awaited an album that is both cohesive and diverse without reaking of effort. All hail the Queen!

Why I LOVE this CD
I love it cause it's not simple. I can hear it over & over & still be deciphering the lyrics. Mid Section 8 stays in my head, Our Father is beautiful (almost makes me cry) & Alive is probably my favorite. All the songs are significant in their own way, production is great. Power U is powerful, much love to this sister.

"Power U" is definately a big and blessed hit!
what can I say but that "Power U" is definately a big and blessed hit! Everything so well said and/or sung and the beats are EXCELLENT (off da' hook!) Queen Godis has got skillz, and with this album, she has proven her right to be in this game!
"Power U" is definately worth every (single, last)penny!
In closing what can I say but "Power U" "B Girl" "Apple" "I Love U!" "Mid- Section 8" "Our Father" (tears, tears, tears...wow)and "seXXy" YES!!!
If I HAD to pick a fave I'd say "I love You..." (and "Mid-Section 8" and "seXXy" ;) but that would only be if you MADE me pick. "Power U" is a complete session filled with all the ups and downs of being a human being a woman (or loving a human being a woman), and so all parts are necessary to leave you feeling completely fulfilled and overstood.
Keep on doing your thang Queen Godis!!...Jah guides, Beloved
