Doe Paoro Announces Divine Surrendering EP Out June 10th

Nothing stays still forever, the spirit of nature growing upward towards something greater. Fueled by that understanding, Doe Paoro has spent much of the last year deep in the Costa Rican jungle, exploring ways that music could activate deeper consciousness. Today, the musician, born Sonia Kreitzer, announces her new EP Divine Surrendering, due June 10 - a healing ceremony in EP form - and shares its hauntingly hymnal title-track.

Seeking an escape from the paradoxically congested and isolated existence of life in a big city, Divine Surrendering allows Paoro and the listener to explore healing worlds beyond. The title track explores that exact worldshift in purple piano spirals, Paoro's seraphic vocals leading the way. "Feeling in the dark, crawling til I walk, each time that I fall/ Divine surrendering," she sings, that feeling of exploration and mystery ringing desperately true. "It's about learning to trust life with more grace and understanding that surrender isn't a phase or a weakness, it's the constant flow," she says. "My prayer for this song is for it to specifically help people with the grief and dying process."

By deepening her connection with rituals like sound baths, psilocybin ceremonies, and the healing power of music, Paoro's latest work allowed her to entrust in music's potential to be a wellspring of uplift in the midst of gossamer beauty. Like the rebirth Paoro experienced in her own journey, the EP finds comfort in a constant sense of newness, growth, and transformation. Throughout Divine Surrendering, Paoro returns to grand humility, harnessing her strength by losing the self, tapping into something immense and drawing the listener to that same place. "It's all about learning to trust life, to trust the medicine of life, to remember that we really don't know anything!" she says. While her music had always incorporated an ethereal, transcendental quality, Divine Surrendering owns up to its title, pushing past the personal and into an immeasurable depth.
