Okay, so it’s going to sound like a cliché, but Psalmist Doris Stokes' “Blow Me Away” blew me away.
It all works: from the clubby R&B beat and the sassy background vocalists evoking En Vogue to Psalmist Stokes weaving her praise vocals under, around and through the musicianship. With her family steeped in the 1970s/1980s soul-funk movement, I’m not at all surprised at her musical eclecticism and confidence.
The Daytonian’s live album Praise and Worship...Unleashed was very good, but this single, which recently debuted on BET's Bobby Jones Gospel, marks her finest performance to date.
