HADIZA DOCKERAY is a vocalist and songwriter from New York City. While studying and working as a backing vocalist and dancer in Paris, she discovered a passion for music that led her down a new path. With her 5-piece band, Hadiza performed in cafés and clubs, interpreting jazz standards and covers of r&b classics. Soon after returning to New York, she began writing her own music, quickly gaining notice for her mellifluous voice, thought-provoking lyrics and high-energy performance style. Her combination of rock, blues, pop and soul influences created the sound she refers to as “Honey-coated Blues”.

In keeping with her musical roots, Hadiza also enjoys the chance to perform jazz and popular standards, as well as traditional blues. She has recorded with Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill, Director of The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, and performed with acclaimed pianist and composer John DiMartino at The Harvard Club of New York City. Her latest EP, Chapter 4, was released in April, 2013. Featuring the musical direction of pianist, composer and arranger David Pearl, and the exceptional performances of Steve Bargonetti on guitar, Leon Lee Dorsey on bass and Rodney Harrison on drums, ‘Chapter 4’ reflects a spiritual journey long in the making for Hadiza.
