D’orjay The Singing Shaman was a late bloomer stepping on to the stage. Helping her clients and students heal to their most authentic selves and navigating years of her own personal limiting beliefs and experiences meant that she was 35 years old when she finally grabbed the microphone in a professional capacity. D’orjay’s most authentic self expression and healing comes from writing songs and sharing those stories with vulnerability and emotion to the audience. Her style of country music continues to evolve honouring the classic country music she grew up on living in Rural Alberta while also colouring outside the lines of what current mainstream country music has to offer. As a Black Queer woman, D'orjay is passionate, vocal and committed to bringing diversity and inclusiveness to country music.
D’orjay released her debut album “New Kind of Outlaw” in Nov 2020.
D’orjay recorded the entire project at Edmonton studio, Velveteen Audio, with JUNO nominated producer Brad Simons (Nuela Charles), engineers Randor Lin (Ten Second Epic) and Brad Smith (iamhill). You’ll hear country’s finest players including Grammy nominated Ryan Davidson on guitar, Travis Switzer (Meghan Patrick, Dallas Smith) on bass, Chad Melchert (Gord Bamford) on drums, Denis Dufresne (Ghost Boy, Dan Davidson) on fiddle, Mitch Jay on steel, banjo and dobro (CCMA Steel Player of the Year), Soulful Singalaong bandmate Vicky Berg (Rosina Cove) and Sierra Jamerson and Colin Brereton on Background Vocals.
