Biography

Douglas Willett

In search of personal fulfillment is a quest Douglas Willett has uncovered since relocating to Geensboro, NC in 1990. He was placed and raised in foster care at the age of 2 in Providence Kentucky. Thirteen years later, during his first church solo, Willett first experienced his Gospel Roots and ability to touch the hearts and souls of his listeners by taking personal experiences transcending them into memorable moments for everyone.

His style and music can be paired with Earth Wind & Fire’s inspirational value, self healing, and love. Vocally he can be compared to Brian McKnight, Johnny Gill, and Fred Hammonds. His writing skills are developing everyday through life experiences being around people and listening. He compares his writing to India. Arie, Kirk Franklin, and Sade. Willett said," My melodies come from listening to all Jazz genre's and being alert to unique pitches in my surroundings." His unique voice quality has made him a requested voice at weddings, beach shows, and special music programs.

Currently he is studying Entertainment Law to purue a goal to own his own plublishing co. He has enterd songwriting competions, and recently his song"Can You Hear Me?" has advanced to the next round of the International Songwriting Competition (ISC). The workshops and seminars he will contiue to pursue to advance his musical education. Over the past ten years he’s been studying voice and 3 years of music theory with his private music instructor. This he feels will give him the elements and foundation needed to secure a professional career in music. His accomplishments include a featured soloist for the Greensboro Orchestra Symphony, first single; “Candle Lit For You" was selected as a finalist for the 2005 (ISC) International Songwriting Competion in Nashville Tenn. The single also was in regular rotation with local radio stations. In addition Douglas also made it as a finalist for the (TJMS) Tom Joyner Morning Show 2005 Big Break. His upcoming single entitled, “Move On," was selected as the theme song for a dramatic play in North Carolina. His most recent accomplishment was being selected by (BMI) for The Donald Lawrence Demo Critique.

In the past, Willett has shared the stage with performers such as the Righteous Brothers, Impressions & Kenny Loggings and is looking forward to working with more artist. Consequently each performance has progressed him to a higher means of personal achievement. When asked what sets him apart from other solo artists Willett replies, “ I challenge myself to write a song in any setting at any time and make it conversational."

He will continue to pursue his career as a vocalist, songwriter, performer, and recording artist.
