Dorian Devins Dorian Devins

New York City-based jazz vocalist and lyricist Dorian Devins comes to performance from a lifetime of involvement with music filtered through a diverse background, including a career in broadcasting and print media and extensive travel.

After finding that she loved creating music through performance, she studied music theory and voice. Not content to do the standard repertoire of many jazz singers, she set out to learn and understand the music she most loved, and found a new voice writing lyrics. To date she has written lyrics for over 2 dozen jazz standards, and is currently working on composing her own tunes as well.

Aside from music, Dorian is the co-founder and co-curator of the world-famous Secret Science Club, a monthly arts and lecture series based in Brooklyn, NY. She is also a visual artist.
