ABOUT DESIREE DORION:
You might expect for a singer to take some time off after having a baby…but not Desiree Dorion. In her typical renaissance woman style, the award-winning artist was right back at it, writing and recording songs with Producer Arun Chaturvedi for her next release, which is due out in January, 2013. Honesty, emotion, and work ethic are some of her defining attributes. These coupled with her gift for songwriting, and her versatile voice are what sets this young country crooner apart.
