Biography


Detroit has always been known for its thriving music scene and diverse musical artists. From the blue-collared heavy music of Bob Seger to the rap-rock of Kid Rock, the city has consistently produced music that has captured the hard-working-harder-playing essence of the “Motor City.”

Embodying this hard-working spirit is up-and-coming singer-songwriter Don “Doop” Duprie and the Inside Outlaws. Born and raised in the industrial enclave of River Rouge, MI, this son of an auto mechanic and an Avon lady learned early on that hard work and doing the right thing always provided for his family. A veteran firefighter, Doop now conveys that same work ethic and honesty in all aspects of his musical career as a full-time Detroit and Nashville singer/songwriter.

Seeking an outlet for his lifelong passion for music and songwriting, Doop founded the first edition of the Inside Outlaws in 2005 with longtime friend and co-writer Ty Stone. The Inside Outlaws are a nationwide group of singer-songwriters dedicated to developing new talent through education and networking and found tremendous success in 2006 by establishing a relationship between Kid Rock and Ty Stone which eventually led to Stone being signed to Top Dog/Atlantic Records. They also successfully stage-managed the subsequent nationwide arena tour on which Stone was asked to perform. The collective have performed at the Detroit Cityfest - a music, food and arts festival - for the past two years to enthusiastic crowds and this year headlined a full day showcasing their artists.

Doop currently divides his time between Nashville and Detroit and recently signed a publishing deal with Highland Publishing on Music Row and finished his debut album, “Blood River”, with legendary Detroit producer Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Mooney Suzuki). “Blood River” features ten songs that vary from down-home country rock and heartfelt Americana ballads to gritty Detroit rock 'n’ roll. Each song tells the story of living life in a place that was once a burgeoning city and dealing with life’s trials and tribulations and has found fans in listeners who appreciate good honest music that comes from straight from the soul.
