WHO IS DORIE PRIDE?

Singer/Songwriter/Musician/Author DORIE PRIDE is a purple sheep that walks to the beat of her own drum. She thinks outside the box and is exuberant about life!  “I am wonderfully comfortable in my own skin and live by the cardinal rule of the heart LOVE.  I am very committed to living a life that fulfills my purpose on planet earth. That purpose is making great music that stirs the heart and provokes thoughts that challenge people's consciousness and wake them up. I write music on my guitar and sing words that entice, invite and open unconscious eyes to see the bigger purpose of our lives, through my words and music.  I am confident that I am on track with my mission.

Dorie Pride is a gifted poetess who spreads seeds of LIGHT through her music. She draws upon her Native American and African roots compelling her to use her voice to bring attention to humanity, the political world, and mother earth. Through her prolific timely observations on the human condition, she brings awareness to the global warming crisis and the ever-growing lack of compassion. Dorie weaves thought-provoking stories on our social tapestry, beckoning humanity to pause and listen, take heed to what is going on with the mishandling of our government’s democracy, police brutality, racial injustice, chaos, civil rights, women’s rights, global warming, and soaring death tolls from Covid-19. Pride. She speaks to the blatant cry of the hopelessness and fear we all feel and wrestle with daily

Dorie Pride’s poetic, socially charged debut album LIFE IS JUST A COLOR TV and sophomore album, LOVE WILL FIND A WAY, opened a door leading her listeners into realms of thought-provoking stories taken straight from the pages of life, unfolding stories that cast light and shadows on the collective soul. ‘With an androgynous, smoky voice reminiscent of JONI MITCHELL, Dorie twists and flows into a hauntingly captivating contralto voice awakening memories of the late great NINA SIMONE as she sings, SHE NEVER ASKS’ which qualified for GRAMMY consideration in Song of the Year category and #1 on many INDIE CHARTS WORLDWIDE. Pride changes musical direction with this upcoming EP. While she carries her signature message, it has a strong, solid R&B /Latin groove Brilliantly Produced, Arranged, and Co-written by KAMAU SEITU. It drops in mid-December.  The first single NEVER GIVE UP THE FIGHT and the second single, LOVE WILL CONQUER ALL, both graced INDIE CHARTS in #1 POSITION for many weeks. Now she drops her third-new single- NO TIME FOR FEAR and it is already #2 in the UK with wonderful radio traction on INDIE CHARTS domestically, moving onward and upward.
