Hailing from North Charleston, SC, Demetrius Doctor’s musical journey began at age 5 as a self-taught pianist in church. The Gullah-Geechee influence of the Black church in the Lowcountry is the foundation on which all of his musicality is built. Demetrius attended The Charleston County School of Arts, where he received numerous musical awards and recognitions for his work in piano and tuba. He went on to receive his B.A. in Music from the College of Charleston and later received his M.A. in Music Technology from Coastal Carolina University. His musical journey has blessed him to work with Gospel artists like Tye Tribbett, Jonathan Nelson, and Duranice Pace, as well as jazz musicians like Fred Wesley and Freddy Cole. He’s also toured Italy, Spain, Croatia, and many cities in the United States. Demetrius currently serves as Minister of Music at Royal Baptist Church in N. Charleston, SC, is a board member of the non-profit Charleston Jazz, and can be found playing in multiple venues and settings in and throughout the Charleston Area. Outside of music, Demetrius enjoys watching sports and spending time with his wife, Corinthian, their daughter, Alani, and their twin boys, Weston and Dawson.
