One of the most insightful, up and coming artists of our time, singer/ songwriter, actor, urban yogi and music healer, Dorian, has captured the attention of critics and audiences alike with a body of work that has crossed all artistic genres—from music to the stage and television.
His acoustic and neo soul music, with its conscious lyrics, has been called ‘balm for the soul’, ‘uplifting’, ‘necessary’ and ‘much needed for our time’.
Working to model his career after D.J., singer/ songwriter and activist, Michael Franti, Dorian strives to uplift the human spirit everywhere he sings. In his charity work, he serves as a music healer at Cedar’s Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles singing to patients at bedside. He was featured on the American Giving Awards on NBC in December 2012, encouraging people across the nation to make a difference by getting out and sharing their talents on a voluntary basis in their communities. Dorian sang at the Run For Her Fundraiser at Pan Pacific Park in Los Angeles in the fall of 2012 to raise money for Women’s Ovarian Cancer Research and with the Agape International Choir at the Freedom Awards for Free the Slaves, an international human rights organization, established to campaign against the modern practice of slavery across the globe.
As with his music, Dorian’s acting career also makes a soulful impact.
Dorian has appeared as a guest star on CSI: Las Vegas’s “Unshockable” with country music group, The Rascal Flatts and had a major 5 episode guest star role as a veteran of the Iraq war suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and amnesia on the final season of NBC’s ER.
His acting career has landed him on projects with household names, like: Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Anthony Mackie, Phylicia Rashad and Angela Bassett.
Dorian’s mission as a recording artist is to heal people on a soul level. He says, “I’ve trained as a Reiki Master, Kripalu Bodyworker and I still work a few days a week as a licensed community pharmacist – a modern day medicine man – in an industry that’s spun out of control. I see a need on the faces of people for a kind of medicine that goes beyond the body into the soul. My work has shown me that music can reach places in people that medicine cannot reach. Music can aid in the healing process because it speaks to the body, mind and most importantly…the SOUL!”
When he’s not working on music or acting or in health care, Dorian is practicing yoga or doing street work-outs in the park to keep himself conditioned to carry out his lifework.
Everyday Warrior is Dorian’s indie debut release.
