DOUY`E

 

I have been recently listening to the soulful vibes of Nigerian soul artist Douye at first I could hear Dinah Washington and at times Billie holiday mixed with Anita Baker andElla Fitzgerald. This should have been of no surprise when I read that most of the above artists have provided Douye with the musical her influences. Growing up influenced by such jazz and R&B legends as Peggy Lee, Ray Charles, Billie Holliday, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Sade, the multi-faceted performer an singing in church at the age of seven and quickly began focusing on her future as a professional singer. By age ten, she was expressing her innermost emotions in poetry, which led naturally to her development as a compelling songwriter. In her mid-teens, she traveled to Europe to pursue her growing musical dreams, and she later immigrated to the United States to study voice at the acclaimed Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California began focusing on her future as a professional singer. By age ten, she was expressing her innermost emotions in poetry, which led naturally to her development as a compelling songwriter. In her mid-teens, she travelled to Europe to pursue her growing musical dreams, and she later immigrated to the United States to study voice at the acclaimed Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California.She is taken these influences infused them with jazz/soul music  vibe  that is of her own making, this makes her unique in both sound ,songs and lyrical content also production areas of which are very strong she has mastered the art of using a great melody with a good rhythm desiring this with great lyrical content harmony and production in truth I guess that's why here in Europe we have taken her to our hearts as her music whilst for many would appear to only appeal to an older audience there is something here for a lot of young, just today and the young listeners. If an artist like Adele had taken on some of Douy`e songs many around the would hail Douye a genius. She knows her craft and has studied it well whilst in the US she met up with producer and songwriter Terry shaddock and the album journey was born. As they say if it isn't broke don't fix it so when it came time for a second album they again sought to capture the rich soulful yet distinct sound that she was now beginning to make her own. Word of warning when you first hear this lady the name SADE will come to mind you will want to make a comparison even dismiss this off hand, I say let it simmer and sink in then Douye music really does come into its own and vocally you see she has her own unique style. In a world where radio TV and dare I say this some websites are only looking for the next big thing then they rave about the artist for the first album and somehow ignore any further work that is produced almost as if it yesterday’s thing rather than keep up the support. Douye music and other artist like her deserve strong support because it’s that good if her music was chocolate we would all be addicted . CHECK OUT  HER ALBUM  JOURNEY and her soon to be released album  entitled  SO MUCH LOVE.As she put it recently 

 I decided to title this album “So Much Love” because so much love has been given to this project and everyone that worked on this project gave it their all in the making of it…overall, I do this for the love of music and most especially for my lovepops all over the WORLD!!!. LUV U GUYS.. Cheers
