Deetrich delivers melodic acoustic songs that draw from old rock and roll and country but adding a pop sensibility.
Dee Doyle a.k.a. ‘Deetrich’, former lead singer and songwriter of Kilkenny band Dali and member of The Whiteliars, has spread her wings and taken on a solo career. Recently signed to Reekus Records, her debut album ,‘Tug of War’, was released November 2012, with producer Leo Pearson of the Barn studios Thomastown at the helm. The record has been praised by the press with the Sunday Business Post hailing the record's 'breezy melodies, snippy lyrics and rich luminous vocals.’
Dee’s first release on Reekus is the very topical ‘No Job, No Money’ which was released as a digital download on iTunes from November 18th 2011. Her first release off the debut record has been the single 'Bent out of shape' which was released in October 2012 , with a review from Hotpress describing 'Ms Doyle's rich, ageless voice as falling somewhere between Chrissie Hynde and Eva Cassidy. With a voice that 'stands out a mile'.
Dee has been performing live music since June 2006 and over the years has supported such great acts as the late John Martyn, Donovan, Republic of Loose, Cathy Davey, The Stunning, Gemma Hayes, Wallis Bird and many more…
