Syeed DiJon Poole, known professionally as “The Doyénne”, is an American singer, lyricist, songwriter and record producer based in Phoenix, Arizona. Originally from Flint, Michigan, his musical training began in the Southern Baptist church as a member of the choir before he began writing and producing his own music using the Fruity Loops digital audio workstation software suite in 2006. While the sonic contributions from the likes of Prince, Janet Jackson, and Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott would serve as a huge influence to Poole’s sound, it would be his discovery of chiptune and plugins that were capable of emulating the 8-bit sound that would become his production trademark as seen in signature tracks such as “Party Girl” and “Ass Like Beyoncé”.
His 2011 debut long-play project, “Body of Work” , was a moderate local success and the sophomore effort “QUEEN” was met with positive critical reception. In 2016, Poole took time away from performing live and focused on recording music as well as completing studies towards the pursuit of an associate’s degree in music business, a shift that led to six consecutive releases of music throughout that same year. Poole now looks to continue making appearances through the foreseeable future in support of his latest compilation “W H I T E” and the debut music video for the song “Strange Kind of Love”.
