The Fine Line

The Doves

It’s been said that there’s a fine line between love and hate; wisdom and ignorance; the true and the false. Come join The DOVES for a brief walk along The Fine Line that separates one world from another. Are you “apart the machine”? Or a part of it?

The DOVES (husband and wife team W. Wade and Trena Stooksberry) join together once again with the extraordinary talents of Joey Stuckey (producer, engineer, bass) and Tim Alexander (drums) in “The Fine Line”: a song that invokes the pathos involved with striving to “walk the line” (a la Johnny Cash) – or not to.

“The Fine Line” is another addition to The DOVES growing catalogue of work (the singles “Wild and Strange”; “Shut My Mouth”; the soon to be released “Mirage”; and the 6-song EP “Day (One)” – all available by clicking “More Albums By This Artist” on this page) that confirm what Dan Herman of Radio Crystal Blue remarked on the “Novus Ordo” broadcast of 12/07/14: “they have something unique up their sleeve…”.

Call it “the superior arrangements… and perfect harmonies of the couple” (German blogger Walter H., “A Few Good Times in My Life”); call it

Lush melodies, mystery and simplicity, the profane and the sacred, driving acoustic lyricism. The alternative to the alternative…

Or better yet, simply download the catalog, and decide for yourself.

  1. 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 Richard, James Brown, The Allman Brothers Band 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.

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