Synopsis

Album Description
"MAKE ME BELIEVE is Doug Hoekstra's third CD, released in the U.S. in February of 1999, and Europe a year later. An impressive combination of songcraft and production savvy, this effort showcases his tightly-written musical narratives, intriguing blends of folk, pop and soul. The record draws its title from the disc's lead-off cut, "Sam Cooke Sang the Gospel, " which lays the story of the famous soul singer over an infectious acoustic hip-hop groove, weaving narratives of Cooke's life choices through a celebration of the human experience and spirituality of all types of music, whether labeled "secular" or not...MAKE ME BELIEVE cuts a cross-section of rock and roll culture, handily balancing the past with the future. Musically, the record takes no shortage of chances; lyrically, the search of personal redemption within or around the souls of the disenfranchised is a theme common to nearly all of the record's 14 tracks.
