Singer/songwriter duo Dauzat St. Marie released a new single titled “I Can’t Make You Love Me” today. The duo will be on tour this May in support.
2020 was shaping up to be Dauzat St. Marie’s biggest year to date. The duo started the year by performing at Los Angeles’s iconic Dodger Stadium for the Komen “More Than Pink” Walk and was 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 video as soon as the world went into lockdown in March. In less than nine months, they had gained over 1.6 million YouTube channel views, their music video for “Common Ground” alone gained over a million views, 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 in 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.
