Dorian Holley is new to the solo scene. Perhaps because he has spent most of his time backing folks up. The vocal coach on American Idol the last four seasons, he also sings on Don’t Forget The Lyrics, and was a featured vocalist on Dancing With The Stars for its first three seasons. Listen closely and you can pick his voice out on the film Happy Feet. Then go dig up a copy of cult fav, The Five Heartbeats. Dorian is the voice of Choir Boy, which is kind of funny because when he was a kid he WAS one in the world renowned Bob Mitchell Singing Boys Choir. Since then Dorian has done all of Michael Jackson’s solo tours; toured with Rod Stewart, Queen Latifah, James Taylor, Lionel Richie, Don Henley, Linda Rondstadt; sung with Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Usher, Cristina Aguilera, Fantasia, Stevie Nicks, Patti Labelle, Chris Brown, Jon Legend, Chris Daughtry, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Joss Stone, Seal, Chrisette Michele, aw man, the list goes on and on. When you can’t sleep late one night, Google him. That’ll do it.
But you won’t sleep on his music. It’s a New World Soul Beat Project. The first of its kind. Complimented with the killer poetry of Dorian’s unique take on love, life, holding hands and, of all things, Bar B Q joints.
This from Roy: “ I loved me the sweet sounding soul music-- Marvin, Kashif, Jeffrey Osborne, Angela Bofill, Quincy Jones, James Ingram, LUTHER--- and there they all were, standing right before me, channeling through you, when I walked through that theater door on Saturday. It was like I had just unwrapped this huge gift!! I knew you could sing, but I didn''t know you could SING-- and WRITE-- and SING!!--- so beautifully... “
And: “…your CD has been in my car stereo since 7:30 Saturday night, and I don''t know when it''s coming out.”
Londa: “We rocked the cd back to the house and drank martini’s and ate homemade pizzas and talked about how much we all liked your uplifting performance…”
This from Emory: “You are an original; compelling, engaging, inspiring, sensual, and a brilliant songwriter. Among the best I’ve seen, and I’ve seen the best.”
Jenny: “Your cd is playin'' in my car. Gotta say my favorite track right now is....." How Do You Know".
Dude. This one’s gonna stay on REPEAT. Betchu a hundred bucks. And I’ll double that if you don’t have a laugh or two on the way.
