Oregon born and raised, Moriah Domby has grown from singing at church pancake breakfasts, to completing an acoustic tour across the country.
Moriah has been expressing herself through music from a tender age, teaching herself how to play piano by ear, and making up songs about everything around her before she could read. Both parents, a father who plays guitar and a mother with a musical theater background, fostered her love of music. Once they bought her that first guitar at age 7, Moriah had her eyes set on Nashville.
A wide range of influences like Carole King, Emmylou Harris, Amy Grant, and Dolly Parton, can be heard in Moriah’s writing and vocal style. She also accredits the environment she was raised in out west as one of her biggest influences. Head strong, and eager to set her dreams in motion, Moriah made the move to Nashville at age 18. She graduated with a degree in Music Business from Middle Tennessee State University, and continued to make an impression as an artist to watch. Now, with her first full length album to be released Oct. 22nd, Moriah hopes to reach even more people with her music, and continue to give her fans what they’ve grown to expect from her songs; honest storytelling, warm melodies, and a positive outlook on life.
I grew up in lush Oregon, beside waterfalls, amid tall trees and foxgloves. For a time I went to live beneath Colorado's breathtaking peaks and among dear friends in generous Montana's giving, varied, and beautiful country.
I laughed and dreamed under stars and on rivers and across snowy mountains. Then in the flowery spring of 2007, on a whim, I bought a little banjo...and suddenly all the poems I had been scribbling, and all the melodies I had been humming, and all the beautiful places I had seen spilled out over it's little plucky strings and finally...I had songs to sing.
I grew up in a small town in PA, watching my dad play music at a very early age. I started playing the piano when I was 8 and I picked up a guitar when I was 16.
I spent a few years with my first band, Kabury Lane, playing the northeast PA music scene. We released an album, Segue, in 2007.
In 2009, I relocated to Portland, OR for graduate school and to explore my own music. Portland has been the best thing that could have happened in my life - I've been given the opportunity to play with some incredible people and I've found inspiration around every corner.
I write songs from my heart, and all I hope is that someone can find some connection or meaning in them.
I have a passion for music that I can't explain in words and what I hope is that when you hear or see my play, whether it's my own songs, or someone else's, you can see and feel my connection to music.
