“We now discover that the ostensible constants of physics are, apparently, changing. A provocative article in Scientific American concluded that if these constants are indeed changing, it implies that our reality is but a mere “shadow” of a larger reality…”


You – I see you waiting for the onset of your beautiful life.
Answer – is that it waiting for you, just beyond the muted horizon?
Do you get to contact soon? Or does it draw back?
Hovering, as clear as desire…

But I see your shimmering world
And I see your shimmering world

Now through the prism of your atmosphere, your vision calling
But still you’re desert-crawling nigh.
Your life is like a lens that’s telescoping all your hopes
That dance beneath the watery sky

But I see your shimmering world
And I see your shimmering world

But is it for me to contact?
And is it for me to decide?
And all of your dreams at sunrise
But will they come true?

You -- you sing out of tune; you dance out of step; you play out of key
But I’m still waiting for you
I’m still here, I’m waiting for you
La la la la lah dee dee

Cause I see your shimmering world
And I see your shimmering world

But is it for me to contact?
And is it for me to decide?
And all of your dreams at sunset
But did they come true?

W. Wade and Trena Stooksberry (The DOVES) hail from beautiful Macon, GA – a town located an hour south of Atlanta, renowned for it amazingly rich musical heritage (Lena Horne, Little Richard, Otis Redding, James Brown, The Allman Brothers and Capricorn Records, Mike Mills and Bill Berry of REM, et. al.), as well as its signature antebellum architecture, which was spared by Sherman during his march to the sea. Wade also claims musical DNA from his childhood in Memphis.

They have taken all these influences, and many more, to forge a sound both immediately familiar, and uniquely their own; spanning a gamut from Classic AOR to Adult Contemporary to New Wave, Blues, British Invasion, Southern Revival – and of course, being Southerners, Spiritual.

The DOVES have been capturing attention and acclaim from radio stations and bloggers both at home and abroad: New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Baltimore, DC, LA, Seattle, San Francisco; London, Wales, Germany, the Netherlands, Paris, and elsewhere.

“Mirage” was recorded and mastered at Joey Stuckey’s Shadow Sound Studios, Macon, GA, USA (as were the other songs in The DOVES catalog).
