With an energetic voice that demands to be heard as well as honest, soulful lyrics meant to tear at the heart strings, Brooklin, Ontario-based country singer/songwriter Barbara Lynn Doran unleashes an auditory feast for her fans, giving a deep, raw, emotional energy that meets in between the most electrifying country songs and the strong, heartfelt power ballads of classic rock.

For Barbara Lynn music is so much more than a performance. It is the gateway to her soul that exposes her true self, turning her pain into something beautiful, and her love into a reminder of what truly matters in this world.

Always one to push herself forward in the name of music, Doran has amassed a number of significant accomplishments over her career. Along with recording three albums, she has most notably been placed on the Nashville Songwriters Association’s 2014 “Ones To Watch” list, has been a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition for two years in a row; a finalist in the Great American Songwriting Competition; and was part of the first round ballot nominees in four categories at the inaugural Country Music Association of Ontario Awards.

Barbara has also shared the stage and worked extensively with Juno-nominated songwriter Robert Laidlaw, one of her top supporters. Additionally, she also served as a coordinator with the Nashville Songwriter’s Association, giving back to the musical community that has helped her over the years by organizing songwriters workshops for Canadian-based artists seeking to hone their craft
