Island of Daughters
When considering “Island of Daughters” as a whole, remember that we wrote this album specifically for vinyl. As a result, every song on side A finds its complement and contrast on side B. We introduce you to each side with the Afro-Caribbean rhythms of “Answers” and “Morocco,” followed by the French influence of “Bruise” and “Paris,” the female empowerment of “Calafia” and “Tyrant” and, finally, the dream states of “Listen” and “Wholly”—both songs of being (don’t let the wholly-holy pun be lost on you), but in different incarnations. Hopefully, these notes have given you a deeper appreciation of the album and the thought, energy and spirit that went into it. Thank you for listening!
