The Day You Were Born

by The Doves

The DOVES return to their 20th century pop rock roots with “The Day You Were Born”. Big blocks of melody, harmony, and rhythm define this catchy radio-friendly “love letter”. “A universe of loneliness” surrounds us, demanding “proof — so show me”. So “throw your arms around…” your beloved “like the day (they) were born…”
Genre: Rock: Adult Alternative Pop/Rock

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The Day You Were Born” is the latest addition to The DOVES growing catalogue:

The “musical smorgasbord” of their 6-song EP, “Day (One)” which ranges from acoustic lament (“Dirty Words”), to guitar-driven New Wave (“Day”), to electronic synth (“Some More Than Others”), to glorious chorale (“Out of the Wood”), to “grunge meets Latin in Motown” ("Angeline"), to soulful blues (“Everybody’s Happy But Me”) –

their follow-up “double-sided single” of catchy pop-rock, “Wild and Strange/Shut My Mouth” –

and their most recent offerings, “Mirage” (a galloping reflection on the boundaries of reality: is our world really a “Mirage”?); “The Fine Line” (the pathos involved with choosing to “walk the line”, a la Johnny Cash – or not to); “Why Did You Hurt Me?” (which arrives like a retro echo from the golden age of radio) and “King of Kings” (The DOVES take a gospel turn…) .

The DOVES express an effortless shifting of musical genres that confirm what Dan Herman of Radio Crystal Blue remarked on the “Novus Ordo” broadcast of 12/07/14: “they have something unique up their sleeve…”.

BIO

W. Wade and Trena Stooksberry (The DOVES) hail from beautiful Macon, GA – a town located an hour south of Atlanta, renowned for its amazingly rich musical heritage (Lena Horne, Little Richard, Otis Redding, James Brown, The Allman Brothers and Capricorn Records, Mark Heard, Mike Mills and Bill Berry of REM, et. al.), as well as its signature antebellum architecture, which was spared by Sherman during his march to the sea. Wade also claims musical DNA from his childhood in Memphis.

They have taken all these influences, and many more, to forge a sound both immediately familiar, and uniquely their own; spanning a gamut from Classic AOR to Adult Contemporary to New Wave, Blues, British Invasion, Southern Revival – and of course, being Southerners, Spiritual.

The DOVES have been capturing attention and acclaim from radio stations and bloggers both at home and abroad: New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Baltimore, DC, LA, Seattle, San Francisco; London, Wales, Germany, the Netherlands, Paris, and elsewhere.

Call it “the superior arrangements… and perfect harmonies of the couple” (German blogger Walter H., “A Few Good Times in My Life”); or call it

"Lush melodies, mystery and simplicity,
the profane and the sacred, driving
acoustic lyricism. The alternative to
the alternative”

Written, recorded and mixed by The DOVES
