Atlanta based, internationally touring singer / songwriter and spoken word artist Doria Roberts has lived on the road since performing at the original Lilith Fair in 1999 where she was plucked from the side stage to perform solos with Sarah McLachlan and the Indigo Girls. She quit her day job the next morning and since then has performed nearly 150 shows a year, appearing in listening rooms, theaters and festivals across the US, France, Canada, Sweden and Australia.
She has shared the stage with folk and blues legends The Holmes Brothers, Janis Ian and the late and June Carter Cash, world music darling Angelique Kidjo, Pulizter Prize winning author Alice Walker and Oscar winning actress Jane Fonda as well as pop/R&B favorites Me'shell N'degeocello and Tony Rich and many others. Roberts was also recently chosen for an artist residency sponsored by The Chateauvallon Artist Complex in Ollioules, France which culminated in a five city performance tour in the country’s most revered theaters and art houses.
She has received the International Orfeo Musica Humantarian Award, The Anderson Leadership Award and was nominated for the Colin Higgins Courage Award for lending her music and talent to fundraising and awareness efforts for communities in need around the globe. Through her production company Now You Know Entertainment Group she has organized the original Ladyfest South (benefiting domestic violence), the Queerstock music festival (benefiting youth at risk) and, now, the Farm to Ear Tour, which will highlight and raise funds for food banks around the country.
