In Loving Memory of Dolores Paradise
A collection of Great Songs and Stellar Collaborations for everyone to express and listen to the fine artistry of Dolores and Shoe City Sound. Scott (Father Time) has declared the Best Band Award will now be called "The Shoe City Sound" award for the Golden Kayaks after the 2020 SCS winner and anniversary of Dolores passing. Thank-you Scott! Just before Dolores passing, I sent her a song to work on called "Last Train". She commented to me that she wished she could play guitar and that she would like to play just like me. That touched me deeply. So there will be a tribute song called "Last Train" coming soon. Dolores Paradise, age 73, passed away unexpectedly on February 1, 2021 at her home in Brockton, MA. She was born in Brooklyn, NY, and was a graduate of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. Music was central to Dolores’s life. She began to play the piano at the age of 4 and was a classical vocal soprano in her college years and 20’s. Dolores went on to perform and record music during the post-punk/new wave years of Boston’s vibrant independent music scene (White Women, Megabeat) in the early 1980’s. In the years that followed, Dolores began to write, record, and release pop/electronica music through her own music label, Shoe City Sound, in collaboration with her musical and life partner, Judith O’Mara. Her music is widely distributed via online platforms and streaming services. Almost as important as music to Dolores were visual aesthetics. Very little made her happier than to be surrounded by appealing sights and sounds. She had a great appreciation and talent for interior design, as noted by anyone who ever entered her home. This talent and appreciation extended to the exterior, and Dolores took great pleasure and time gardening and maintaining her own landscaping. She truly had green hands and never met a plant or flower that did not thrive under her care. But, beyond all of this, Dolores was a fun person to be around. While being a deeply private person in many aspects, she genuinely enjoyed socializing with people, had a wonderful knack for conversation, and an immense sense of humor. Dolores had an innate gift for making the most mundane situations feel celebratory. Anyone who ever had the occasion to have a conversation with her (strangers included) would attest to her uncanny ability to make you feel genuinely “heard” – a rare commodity, indeed. She will be deeply missed by and truly touched more people than she could have ever imagined. Hers was a life well lived. Dolores is survived by her partner Judith O’Mara of Brockton, MA, her son Adrien Doherty of Somerville, MA, her sister Terri D’Richards of Henderson, NV, many nieces and nephews, and a multitude of adoring friends.

The Climax
Dolores showed her knowledge and expertise in working with me on this Great song that eventually comes to a climax. Adding simplicity in all the right places with keys and percussion shows her ability for perfection and how much she really enjoyed working with music and whatever I came up with. added to station 2/6/2021 12:51:09 PM

Dolores asked Bryon if she could cover this great song. Dolores had a wonderful voice for singing or just adding vocals to anything. Oddly enough, it's never "Time" to loose such a great talent and friend. added to station 2/6/2021 1:24:51 PM

Melancholia
This song is about losing someone special. It expresses the feelings one goes through when seeing a precious, unique, and magical relationship disappearing, apparently without remedy. -M- added to station 2/13/2021 4:41:40 PM

Guen (ft.Shoe City Sound)
Dolores loved the concept of the medieval maiden in a long dress with scarfs dancing and twirling in a castle courtyard. She was a great history buff. The efforts and meticulous musicianship SCS put into this song helped win us a Golden Kayak Award! added to station 2/6/2021 1:09:29 PM

Just A Splash (ft. Duane Flock)
Talking with Dolores, we joked around with what we were drinking and she said she enjoyed a good Manhattan, or Martini. She had a tune she was working on that I asked if I could add a few riffs to. I was the one who suggested the tital Just A Splash from our jokes. This song shows the lightheartedness of Dolores. added to station 2/6/2021 1:21:20 PM
