Douyé – So Much Love

Nigerian-born, Los Angeles-based singer Douyé (pronounced Doe-Yay) is influenced by Sade, Dianne Reeves, Chanté Moore, Regina Belle, and Rachelle Ferrell. A high measuring pole and at the same time commitment, which Zouyé wants to achieve.

Douyé started her career in 2007 with her debut album Journey now followed by her sophomore album So Much Love (2013). Douyé has written all songs together with British songwriter Terry Shaddick. She is supported by some known musicians such as the late Ricky Lawson, bassist Ron Jenkins, saxophonist Eric Marienthal, trumpet player Rick Braun, keyboardist Phillip Saisse and more.

The album opens with Til Morning Comes, you can say all great theater. Not only that she is amazingly close to Sade’s style, even the instrumentation is finest. Love Rules excels through subtle chorus with impressing harmony. Most of the instruments of this song are performed by JR Hutson, who also recorded with Jill Scott.
