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 almost 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 honoring 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 critically acclaimed debut album “New Kind of Outlaw” in Nov 2020. Since its release she has been nominated for 2021 Breakout West Country Artist of the Year, had her single “New Kind Of Outlaw featured on Hockey Night in Canada, has been a featured artist on Proud Radio Country and Color Me Country on Apple Music Radio and spent multiple weeks on the Alberta's CKUA Top Ten chart including two weeks in the #1 spot. D'orjay has been featured, interviewed, reviewed and/or mentioned by dozens of publications and outlets worldwide including Country Queer, Wide Open Country, Spin Magazine, Bandcamp (to be published), 92Y, Canadian Musician Magazine, In Review and ARC Radio in the UK.
