Dorene was born in Illinois and later moved with her family to Kansas City. At age thirteen, Dorene picked up a guitar and learned to play. She is left handed but it wasn't long before she was hooked and began creating songs. She won a local talent show and was being requested to perform around town.

After High school Dorene took a job as a receptionist. But she was restless and unfulfilled. She quit her job and joined a band. They went on the road and Dorene began to make a name for herself playing in clubs and military bases across the Midwest. Later, She formed her own band and played in Country Clubs, Casinos, Hotels, and over 300 nightclubs as well as a repeated performer at the prestigious Kansas City Spirit Festival.

She wrote many of the songs that were used in her performances. She received the honor of having one of her songs chosen for a Kansas City Songwriters Album. Though she enjoys a wide variety of artists and music, Patsy Cline and Judy Garland are two of her primary inspirations. Dorene's formidable stage presence and remarkable voice has been impressing audiences for 15 years. With her first album,"Dorene", she brings the essence of grit and grace to Country Music. Dorene remains in Kansas City and resides with her three sons.

"..Dorene is a great talent, wonderful voice with power... great music, lyrics and sound."

~ Country Moments,
    Radio HLR, Denmark

"Dorene is in top form with top Nashville musicians and makes this a real winner". For two weeks her first single, "Til The River Dries Up", was Song of the Week, and her album was Album of the Week.

~ Shane Wilder, with TABC in Hollywood, CA

"...this is potentially chart topping material - make no mistake about it. There are fewer than a handful of artists on who have the potential to make it big - and if this track is any indicator of things to come, Dorene belongs to that rare breed."

~ LJ West, Moderator for MP3 in his Country Review

"It's lovely, uncomplicated and true country music. Dorene has a magnificent voice. The music swings, gets your full attention, has all we want to have in a song, in an album."

~ Maasvallei Radio, Belgium

"It is an excellent album. Dorene sings with a lot of conviction, with her soul and her heart."

~ Country Roads, Radio 101.3 mHz, France
