Dorian Spencer

“Dorian writes songs that gracefully balance hope and despair and he sings them with a voice that overflows with earnestness.” … Randy Abramson of

Described as one of the best guitar-playing singer/songwriters in Staten Island by the Staten Island Advance and as a great talent by, Dorian Spencer is building a reputation as one of the most exciting solo artists in New York City.

Dorian Spencer is now an independent artist making a living selling music to a worldwide audience. He infuses folk, alternative, rock, and pop into each song, creating a sound he calls Bohemian Soul. Dorian’s lyrics range from introspective and autobiographical to romantic and entertaining to serious and political. Taken together, his music stays clear of the conventional and promises a fresh perspective.

Dorian has spent six years building a reputation as a street musician making a living off the impulse buys of the New York City public. He defies the odds by continuing to create new and unique music for an ever changing and sometimes indifferent audience. With two independently produced CDs, frequent gigs in some of NYC’s most renowned venues including Madison Square Garden, the Beacon Theater, The Bitter End, and Arlene’s Grocery, Dorian has amassed an impressive fan-base. By popular demand, he won the lion share of 50,000 votes on MSG Network’s reality show, “NYC Sound Tracks,” which showcased some of New York City’s best subway performers. He was also featured at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in its Emerging Artist Showcase.

His music has been compared to Seal, Ben Harper, and Jeff Buckley, yet his original style continues to hold as truly unique.

No matter what the venue or how big the crowd, you can be assured that Dorian’s strong voice and passionate performances will impress and surprise you.
