After graduating Seneca’s Independent Music Production program with high honours, she has collaborated with members from Juno Award winning artists on a full length album due 2017.

Born in Burlington, Ontario, Doris grew up playing on a piano that had survived the bombing of her grandmother’s house in Germany in the Second World War.
Doris took up guitar before heading off to Queen’s University to study Physical Therapy. It was during her university years that she began to write songs as a break from studying.
A job brought her to Revelstoke, BC, where she worked in the hospital, but also was a regular singer and instrumentalist in folk bands at the Revelstoke Coffee House, the Summer Street Festival, and the Snowflake Wine Festival.
Since moving to Guelph in 2014, Doris’ musical career has taken the forefront. She graduated from Berklee College of Music’s Online school with a Professional Singer/Songwriter Certificate. Currently, she’s working on her first EP, and teaches songwriting as part of Hillside Festival’s “Girls and Guitars” Initiative. Her medical background has sparked an interest in musician’s health issues,and she recently organized a Musician’s Physiotherapy workshop at the Guelph Youth Music Centre.
This past summer, her historical co-written song, “The Fields of Perth,” came in third place at the 2016 Stewart Park Festival’s Songwriting Competition. This fall, she travelled as the “Artist-on-Board” the VIA train between Toronto and Vancouver.
With influences like Gillian Welch, Sarah Harmer and The Wailin’ Jenny’s, Doris’ voice has been described as pure, clear and fresh, singing memorable folk songs about authentic characters and stories.
