DOE – Clarity

DOE Clarity RCA Inspiration / Life Room (release date: February 18, 2022) www.rcainspiration.com By Robert M. Marovich An extension of DOE’s self-titled 2001 EP, Clarity has the gentle, intimate vibe associated with the Grammy-nominated songwriter and former lead singer of forever JONES.

Finger popping all the way up the heavenly staircase. Over there is unity, singing, and worship. (I’m hoping also ...
