Doe Paoro - Can't Leave You
Doe Paoro's debut single, Can't Leave You, is the lead track from her forthcoming debut album, Slow To Love Out, which will be released on January 31st, 2012. Can't Leave You was co-produced by cellist Yuri Hart and Decibel Studio's Lasse Marten. On January 3rd, 2012, Doe made her debut live performance at Pianos in New York, which was a success.
The video for Can't Leave You was directed by Elin Gronblom and photographed by the award winning cinematographer Jon Fordham, who has worked with Shiny Toy Guns, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Sublime. The video sees two variations of Doe - a grubby looking Doe standing in a dark alleyway; and the contrasting, girlier version, who runs through the woods in a floaty, white dress.
Doe Paoro is the alias of Sonia Kreitzer, who lives and is based in New York. After attending college in Ohio, she moved to San Francisco and formed Heaven With Your Boots On. Upon returning to Brooklyn, she formed and played in the collective Sonia's Party for a while, before embarking on a life changing solo trip to the Himalayas. The trip sowed the seeds for Doe Paoro; a love of Tibetan opera was also formed there.
Yuri Hart and Lasse Marten began their collaboration with Doe Paoro after watching a YouTube video of the singer performing Can't Leave You on the piano.
