About Doe Paoro

Doe Paoro is the stage name of Syracuse native Sonia Kreitzer, a singer/songwriter who blends moody electronic textures with dubstep, soul, R&B, and dark-toned pop. Following a trip to Tibet, she began recording under the name Doe Paoro, folding Tibetan opera vocal influences into her own minimalist pop sound. While based in Brooklyn, she began issuing singles in late 2011, eventually retreating to an upstate cabin near her hometown to record her self-released debut LP Slow to Love in 2012. The album garnered enough critical acclaim to draw the attention of Anti in Los Angeles, where Paoro had recently relocated. She signed with Anti in early 2015 and quickly released the Hurricane Sandy-inspired single "The Wind," which was produced by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon. For her sophomore LP, she worked with co-producers Sean Carey (also of Bon Iver) and BJ Burton (Tallest Man on Earth, Sylvan Esso), recording at Vernon's studio in Wisconsin. The resulting album, After, was released in September 2015. ~ Timothy Monger
