D'Vora is a published and award-winning SINGER'S SONGWRITER who enjoys writing about everyday observances as well as more universal commentaries on love and life. COMFORTABLE COMPANY is her second album of original songs, and features 9 different carefully and lovingly chosen singers and 12 musicians, each giving a very special interpretation and talent to her creations, making for a very listenable variety of voices and instrumentation. D'Vora has won awards in many song-writing competitions, including the William E. Oliver contest (songs which best express the forward spirit of our times), the Woody Guthrie Festival of Songs (Talking Hayfever Blues, track 6), the Julian Bluegrass Festival (Julian Mountain High, track 4). Her topical songs have appeared in New York's Broadside magazine, Scholastic Books, and the Sierra Club Survival Songbook (Once There Was, track 10), among others.
