Barbara Lynn Doran was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, which is a main suburb outside Toronto. She has always been a musician. She began performing at the age of 8 and started writing songs at the age of 16. Her family is also musically talented. From her grandfather, who played the piano by ear to her uncle’s who played in bands at one time or other. Her mother is also a beautiful singer. Barbara always dreamed of being a professional musician, but her aspirations were being challenged by filling her life with other things. She did decide, however, to pursue music more seriously when she was twenty and which time she recorded her first demo. She taught herself to play guitar and put together her first indie band.
Some of her favorite artists were Olivia Newton John, Madonna, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow and others. Her music is defined as pop/contemporary with a sprinkle of Country. It was at that time she realized that the artist she was fit perfectly into this new sounding Country Music.
