about

Profess is the 9th album from Woven In, the moniker of multi-instrumentalist Mariah Fortune-Johnson.

She is 29 and has been releasing music under the name Woven In since 2013. This album starts out with the lyrics "Ordered me a new shoe, stepping out of the blue," which is just a peek into the type of messages this album encapsulates. Mariah has moved up and down the east coast taking her craft with her every step of the way. This album is somewhat different from the rest because she wrote and recorded it herself without any involvement of any other musicians. Profess is a lone album, but doesn't give the impression of loneliness. This is the first time Fortune uses samples in her music. The samples only amplify the existing messages of her own lyrics. The track "Upsetting," states 'It's upsetting me and my homegirl.'

"It's social commentary on being a Black woman in America," says Fortune.

There are other themes within the album like love, kink, and a couple instrumentals that'll make you contemplative.
