Vocalist Conya Doss Makes History on Soultracks.com, Setting Record for Digital Downloads w/ “What We Gone Do”

Listen to Lead Singles “All in You” and “What We Gone Do”

(Los Angeles, California – September 9, 2010) Nestled between Indiana and Pennsylvania, lies a state that has yet to be fully tapped of it’s musical capacity. In a region whose lineage reflects that of Babyface, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Tracy Chapman, Marilyn Manson, Gerald Levert, The O’Jays, Macy Gray, James Ingram, Roger Troutman and Zapp, The Gapp Band and Avant among others, Conya Doss is the latest female vocalist to emerge over the past decade and hold steadfast to her Midwestern roots. Much like what her predecessors Erykah Badu, India.Arie and Jill Scott did for Dallas, Atlanta and Philly, Doss has already pinned Ohio on the soul music map. Having graced the covers of numerous local publications, regularly performing to sold out Midwestern venues and garnering 500k Myspace profile views as an indie artist Conya also appeared in and recorded a song alongside Detroit vocalist Dwele for McDonald’s McCafe commercial. Conya’s awards include “Best Female Vocalist” by Soultracks, the leading online resource dedicated to classic and modern Soul music, “Heineken Redstar Soul Artist of the Year,” “Best Female Vocalist” at Ohio Hip Hop Awards, a nomination for “Best Underground Artist” at the BET J Virtual Awards and was listed on iTunes as “Best R&B Underground/Indie Artist” and “Best R&B Indie Track” for the single “It’s Over.”

What does Dwele do on his down time? He builds remote control cars and plays with his dog. How many artists give you that kind of inside look at their lives?
