“Stayed On Him”TerrianFrom the Gotee Records EP Genesis of Terrian(release date: February 26, 2021)www.iamterrian.com Robert M. Marovich If you didn’t know better, you’d think DOE is the vocalist on “Stayed on Him.” It’s actually Terrian Bass, aka Terrian, a Memphis-based singer-songwriter and member of TobyMac’s DiverseCity. The only gospel artist selected as one of Pandora’s Artists to Watch in 2021, Terrian navigates a lyric like a test driver navigates curves. Her voice is pleasant and her energy buoyant.

JGM Pick of the Week: April 1, 2019

“Reach”DOEIndependent (release date: March 17, 2019)www.doejonesmusic.com By Bob Marovich “Reach,” the new single by GRAMMY-nominated gospel artist Dominique Jones (aka DOE), represents her finest work to date, amidst a string of quality songs.
