May 22, 2013

We first caught Doe Paoro a year ago at Cameo Gallery, and she wowed us with her sincerity and her unique approach to pop music. Taking the stage at Glasslands, nominally as a support act but as the one with the largest crowd by far, Doe Paoro, showed added poise in her live performance and some subtle refinements to her sound. She also had two songs, “See Me Now” and “New Lows”, to share from a new 7″ release. Boasting a completely new look from last year’s more 90s-inspired digs, Sonia (her real name) came across as a more mature but equally strong performer, continuing to meld vocals that draw from a number of singing traditions with arrangements that draw from reggae, R&B, pop and rock. Along with her bouncier numbers like “Born Whole” and “I’ll Go Blind”, Sonia’s ballads shouldn’t be ignored, either. Both “New Lows”, the new song, and “Live Again” were particularly strong. We look forward to seeing what Sonia will do next.

I recorded this set with the installed Glasslands rig, combining the Naiant  X-R cardiod microphones with a soundboard feed by the Glasslands engineer Chris. To minimize distractions during the quieter songs, the recording favors the soundboard feed. Enjoy!
