BayjeBayje [pronounced “beige”] (born Brittany Doray from Syracuse, New York) is a female pop\R&B singer that first made her presence in the music business in the 2000s.

She got her stage name from her mother after tearfully coming home from school & asking her, “If I’m not black and I’m not white, what am I?” and her mother responded with, “You’re beige.”

Growing up, Bayje was exposed to various types of music from her parents. After winning a karaoke contest at a local radio station, she began performing and at the age of 12, she was discovered by talent manager Bill Herndon, who became her manager & signed her to a production deal.

During that time, she created an online PSA campaign called “Find Your Way to Extraordinary” which provided a platform for teens to share about the issues in their lives.

Baye was supposed to release her debut album sometime around 2009, but due to personal issues, she severed ties with her record label & went on to take a two-year hiatus.

By the 2010s, Bayje (who currently goes under the name Kat Doray) became an independent music artist. In 2012, she released a music video for her song “A Broken Home.”
