Her signing was down to the group themselves who had been big fans of hers for years, in fact the whole of the UK pop scene seemed to be captivated by her talent and unaffected charm.
After Apple she cut for the UK People label and staged concerts with gospel choirs that she had All Night Long - Skip James - She Lyin with throughout her music business career. In the early 90s she wrote and performed in an autobiographical play about her Everythings Alright - Doris Troy And The Gospel Truth - The Rainbow Testament called "Mama I Want To Sing".
The show ran for several months, and stars such as Prince and Stevie Wonder turned up to Everythings Alright - Doris Troy And The Gospel Truth - The Rainbow Testament it and meet the legend. At this time I was running my fourth Cleethorpes Northern Soul weekender and had been let down by an act I had booked for Break Down Low (Radio Mix) - Energy Syndicate - Synergized (File, MP3, Album, MP3). I rang Doris cold and asked her if she could come up and help me out with a PA at the event.
She agreed to straight away and very reasonablyeven if it was on the only day she had off from the show. Her presence was tremendous and of course she was great with the fans. The meeting lead to me working as her agent, when she decided to stay on in London after her show closed. She performed many jazz and supper clubs and did a full soul show at the Club where Van Morrison came down to see her as a fan, remembering her fondly from the 60s. She then appeared at another Cleethorpes weekender with full backing band and this was filmed by Channel 4 for a documentary they did about the event.
Eventually her health worries forced her to live in Las Vegas where the climate helped her breathing. Doris was one of the most understanding and kind hearted people you could ever wish to meet. Her approachability often made you forget what a talented artist she was. She would treat each fan as graciously as each megastar who came to see her. And when she referred to her friends as "Baby, Baby, Baby", they always felt very special. Just click on the link back to the main Artist Discography page if you want to check another one out.
