When it comes to the Voice, the wow factor comes from the vocal ability of Lori D. Originally from Cincinnati,Ohio, Lori moved here in 2003.

Her love of music gave her the drive and ambition to pursue a musical career. Her influences run the gamut from A to Z and she truly has the ability to sing the phone book. She has been singing locally and turning heads for years. Her crowd interaction enables everyone to be part of the show and gets the people up dancing. Lori’s explosive vocals will take you from Adele to Journey, Heart, Lady Gaga, Pat Benatar, Gretchen Wilson, Janis Joplin, Fleetwood Mac, all the way to Led Zeppelin. When you go see a Lori D show, you get a combination of a dance party and a kick-ass rock and roll concert of all your favorite artists!
