Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Doe Paoro will be at MOTR Pub this Saturday opening for Givers! Paoro has garnered much acclaim for an innovative, expressive sound that references elements of synth pop, modern R&B and earthy minimalism.
Her debut album, After came out this past fall and the Huffington Post called “a refreshing standout in the indie-pop genre” and wrote, “having drawn comparisons in the past to James Blake, Adele, and Lykke Li, Paoro contributes an earthy, minimalist sound that is simultaneously nostalgic and contemporary.”
On After, Paoro worked with producers Sean Carey (drummer / supporting vocalist for Bon Iver) and BJ Burton (The Tallest Man on Earth, Sylvan Esso, and others) to even further deepen her musical repertoire, creating a mesmerizing hybrid of R&B, synthpop, and indie-leaning electro rooted in an earthy minimalism, drawing from influences ranging from Carole King to Portishead, Aretha Franklin and beyond. The album was recorded at April Base, a Wisconsin ranch house that Vernon had converted into a studio.
