CD Liner Notes
As I sit in the “American South” in 2018, I have watched as OUR Nation has moved “BACK” into a place I can only describe as “DESPAIR”, both economically and emotionally. However, “The Ancestors, (to whom I speak Daily) , always found a way to survive and even thrive in times of Oppression, “Our” people have been HERE before… Through songs of Faith and Determination, they encouraged themselves and OTHERS to PERSEVERE through hard times….
Although this was recorded in Los Angeles, the last 8 years of my life have had a “Southern” experience that has been woven into my “Journey” and I believe you will hear the influence of the “Appalachian harmonies” to the Memphis Soulful moans and how those who “read from the same BOOK but, just in different neighborhoods STILL found a way to “lift their heads up” even when “SOMETHING” was trying to “break their backs” and Spirits…..I pray this collection of songs will serve to UPLIFT and ENCOURAGE SOULS to Keep their “EYES LIFTED UNTO THE HILLS FROM WHENCE COMETH THEIR HELP….
I thank ALL those who contributed to this project….Especially, Mitch Forman, for seeing and KEEPING ME in the “HIGH LIGHT” and HOLDING the “VISION” to make it come to fruition….. May ALL BE BLESSED….. Niki Haris
