Comfortable in the worlds of nostalgia and contemporary times, Doring's album has a timeless feel that reflects the past with a body of work dipped in the present.

These two pros know how to keep it simple and direct on such timeless ballad material as the exquisite “Something to Live For” and  “I Got It Bad and That Ain’t Good.”
