''Daughter of world acclaimed pianist Alfred Brendel. Her strong vocal performance makes a lasting impact, and is by some compared to Janis Joplin in style.''

DB ''Driving'' - 2003

Doris B. had been so busy that years had gone by since the last song-writing project and so together with Dave Beeson, a fantastic guitarist and producer, they collaborated on a series of songs. Their shared initials became the title of the ‘band’.

As they were both very busy with other projects there was no pressure or direction – just creativity. This produced an album of mixed genres yet held together by Doris B’s distinctive voice.

1996-2009 (in between projects)

Everyone has to earn some money and Doris B. was not short of offers for covers bands and session work. Various bands were joined, either temporarily or full time including Buzz, Planet Funk, Sister Act, Ladykillers and lastly the Bet Lynch Experience AKA Treacle who became the busiest party band in the UK. This latter band played so many gigs (1400 in 7 years) that they decided to take a year out from April 2009.
