Dorian Holley has shaken, stirred and flipped his former boss, Michael Jackson's music on its head. He has illuminated the King of Pop's songs with a new halo, revealing meaning and fresh perspective. As the lead singer in The Tonight Show Band, featuring Rickey Minor, Dorian has taken his performance skills to a different level. His experience in Michael Jackson's touring bands give him a perspective on musical storytelling that most never get to witness. "I've been blessed to sing on all MJ's solo tours. I got to perform onstage right next to him a few thousand times! That's insane, right?" As the Vocal Director for the THIS IS IT tour (film) Dorian drew knowledge and inspiration straight from the master. This new project is a love letter to MJ and his amazing music. It is presented in a fashion no one has seen before. Songs you know or think you know sparkle with a new energy. They are to be experienced and shared all over again.
Dorian Holley is new to the solo scene. Perhaps because he has spent most of his time backing folks up. The vocal coach on American Idol the last four seasons, he also sings on Don’t Forget The Lyrics, and was a featured vocalist on Dancing With The Stars for its first three seasons. Listen closely and you can pick his voice out on the film Happy Feet. Then go dig up a copy of cult fav, The Five Heartbeats. Dorian is the voice of Choir Boy, which is kind of funny because when he was a kid he WAS one in the world renowned Bob Mitchell Singing Boys Choir. Since then Dorian has done all of Michael Jackson’s solo tours; toured with Rod Stewart, Queen Latifah, James Taylor, Lionel Richie, Don Henley, Linda Rondstadt; sung with Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Usher, Cristina Aguilera, Fantasia, Stevie Nicks, Patti Labelle, Chris Brown, Jon Legend, Chris Daughtry, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Joss Stone, Seal, Chrisette Michele, aw man, the list goes on and on. When you can’t sleep late one night, Google him. That’ll do it.
But you won’t sleep on his music. It’s a World Beat Soul Project. Complimented with the killer poetry of Dorian’s unique take on love, life, holding hands and, of all things, Bar B Q joints.
Dude. This one’s gonna stay on REPEAT. Betchu a hundred bucks. And I’ll double that if you don’t have a laugh or two on the way.
