What do the drummer from Korn, the bass player for Corey Taylor/Billy Howerdel, and guitar player for Kesha/Black Light Burns/Dorothy have in common?
Dauzat St. Marie enlist Korn drummer Ray Luzier, bass player Eliot Lorango (Corey Taylor/Billy Howerdel/Dorothy), and guitarist Nick Annis (Kesha/Black Light Burns/Dorothy) for their latest effort “Nothing Left To Lose.”
“My great friend Sébastien Paquet (Korn’s videographer) turned me on to this amazing duo a few years ago named Dauzat St. Marie while he was doing one of their music videos. I was completely blown away by how beautiful & emotional their voices sounded & how well-written the song was! I became an instant fan & wanted to hear more tunes. So when Dauzat St. Marie approached me about playing on one of their new songs, I of course said ‘YES’ & ‘WHEN’?!” says Ray Luzier (Korn).
He adds, “It was a pleasure to work with Mat & Heather, they’re a ball of light & positive energy & that shines through clearly their music! I tracked ‘Nothing Left To Lose’ at my studio in Nashville TN. I really wanted to get inside the music & give it all the emotion & soul that I could. We need much more of Dauzat St. Marie’s music out there & I have a good feeling you’ll be hearing them on radios & devices everywhere soon!”
The name Dauzat St. Marie (pronouced “dō-zaht saynt mah-ree”) has been circulating quite far and wide these past several years through heavyweight touring with some heavyweight artists. Known for their lockstep vocal harmonies and catchy, yet thought-provoking songwriting, singer/songwriter troubadours Mat Dauzat and Heather St. Marie have kept the name Dauzat St. Marie popping up all over the U.S. by touring as main support for Grammy® Award winning heartthrob Rick Springfield’s “Stripped Down” solo acoustic show series for the past five years and peppered in dates with The Marshall Tucker Band, Lindsay Ell, Schuyler Fisk / Sissy Spacek, and Rick Derringer. Most recently, Dauzat St. Marie toured the U.S. as support for legendary music icons Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo.
2020 was shaping up to be a monumental year for Dauzat St. Marie. They kicked it off with a performance at Los Angeles’s iconic Dodger Stadium for the Komen “More Than Pink” Walk. Then the duo began preparing for their biggest tour to date – the support slot on the summer arena tour with Rick Springfield and one of the world’s best-selling groups of all time – CHICAGO. Sadly, the tour was terminated less than two months before it even began due to Covid-19. Though being handed a tough blow, Dauzat St. Marie didn’t skip a beat – the duo used the forced downtime to begin releasing new music and videos as soon as the world went into lockdown. Their first single released during lockdown titled “Common Ground” landed on the world-famous music compilation series “Now That’s What I Call Music” volume 75, gaining Dauzat St. Marie a large new audience worldwide with the compilation series’ cult-like followers.
In less than nine months into the lockdown, Dauzat St. Marie gained over 1.6 million YouTube channel views, with their music video for “Common Ground” logging over a million views alone. Their music video for “In It Together” was used by The American Cancer Society as a vehicle for awareness and fundraising in a national Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign (Heather is a recent breast cancer survivor), and one of their singles titled “Where Were You?” landed on the 2021 Grammy® Awards ballot in three separate categories – Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year, and Best Pop Duo / Group Performance.
While continuing to roll out singles into 2021, Dauzat St. Marie was invited to record in collaboration with Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, KT Tunstall, Keith Goodwin (Good Old War), and other Taylor Guitars sponsored artists on the song “I Know What Love Is,” with all funds raised going to MusicCares to assist musicians struggling during the pandemic. The song has been streamed over 2.5 million times and raised over $12,000 for MusicCares.
