Album Notes
HADIZA DOCKERAY is a vocalist and songwriter from New York City. Raised in St. Albans, Queens by Nigerian and Jamaican-American parents, she moved to Paris after college. While studying and working there as a backing vocalist and dancer, she discovered a passion for music that led her down a new path. Soon after returning to New York, she began writing original songs that combined rock, blues, pop and soul influences to create the sound she called "satin funk." Hadiza quickly gained notice for her mellifluous voice, thought-provoking lyrics and high-energy performance style. After several years of playing local venues, she brought her sound to a wider audience by way of the music video "Somebody Better". The video was directed by Craig Cobb and produced for Hadiza by M8 Films, LLC. The song was produced by Ryan Waters, guitarist for Sade and co-founder of the band ill.

In keeping with her musical roots, Hadiza also enjoys the chance to perform jazz and popular standards, as well as traditional blues. She has recorded with Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill, Director of The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, and performed with acclaimed pianist and composer John DiMartino at The Harvard Club of New York City. Hadiza was invited to be among the first featured artists of the Singers Space showcase at Bar Thalia, Symphony Space, presented by D'Ambrose Boyd and David Pearl. That experience led to a continued collaboration with Mr. Pearl, a pianist , composer and arranger who became Music Director for Hadiza's 2012 concert at Triad NYC. He brought together three exceptional players - Steve Bargonetti on guitar, Leon Lee Dorsey on bass and Rodney Harrison on drums - to lay the groundwork for the recording of Hadiza's EP Chapter 4.
