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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
