Sometimes stardom and tragedy go hand in hand. If both must be included in a formula for success, then Spade Cooley may have been the most successful of them all. Spade was a 40's era pioneer of western swing and spaghetti westerns who conquered the country music industry along with Hollywood costarring with notable icons such as Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. His career was at its zenith when his descent into a jealous alcohol fueled freefall resulted in the shocking murder of his then wife Ella Mae Evans. Convinced that she was cheating on him with Rogers, he murdered her in an unfathomable act of brutality. Cooley was serving his 8th year prison sentence before performing at a benefit when he died from a heart attack immediately following the show.

Spayed Koolie is the musical project created by David Dorr. The band is comprised of several handpicked prodigies by David himself to collectively convey the melodies that he has extracted from the depths of the human soul. The music finds redemption mixed with, sorrow and anger, blended smooth like a warm glass of Calvados Brandy with a slight hint of American blues in the aftertaste. The songs rich with musical vibrance, emanate the sounds of rock and roll through edgy guitar riffs, eclectic bass runs and classical piano tones. Like Cooley himself, David has in a similar fashion visited the depths of emptiness, brought forth from personal demons and toxic relationships, some resulting from fate's cruel timing, and others a shameful product of himself.


Spayed Koolie is not a repackaged radio friendly product of the industries cookie cutter that taste’s like the same bowl of bland health cereal you eat every morning. It's the guilt you feel from the greasy bacon and eggs that you secretly indulge in before kissing your mistress the morning after in a seedy hotel. Spayed Koolie divulges a man's life experiences, and honest recollection of a past re lived, and a present still living with imperfections and vulnerability. The music of Spayed Koolie is a vivid, unpredictable ride along the wavelength of life's soundtrack.
