Prepare to discover your newest musical addiction when Douyé takes the Arts Garage stage July 12. Born in Nigeria, Douyé grew up with an innate love of singing, one she channeled into performing in her church choir and belting out favorites from her father’s record collection. Although she’s previously dabbled in R&B, her latest album, Daddy Said So, is all about jazz. It features sultry interpretations of the standards her late father introduced her to as a child, from the gorgeous Gershwin-written “Someone to Watch Over Me” to the Spanish-language Bolero hit “Bésame Mucho.” Listeners will be tempted to herald Douyé as a modern-day incarnation of Billie Holiday—especially when she sings Holiday’s “Body and Soul”—but this songstress boasts a vocal styling all her own, paired with a passion for musicianship and a thirst for creative compositions.
