The family that plays together
The Rosenfields don’t go on family vacations these days. Instead, they book studio time and perform. Known professionally as the Dorons, they hail from Providence, Rhode Island. The quartet features mom, dad, and two brothers. “Never in a million years did I dream I would be in a band with my wife and our two sons,” says Norman Rosenfield, lead guitarist and dad.
Yosef Rosenfield, lead singer and rhythm guitarist, reflects, “I am the only person I know who gets to play his favorite songs he grew up listening to and record them as original music.” The Dorons also features drummer, songwriter, and mom, Janice Kaidan, as well as bassist, older son, and Atlanta-based attorney, Aryeh Rosenfield. The music of the Dorons evokes 21st-century folk-rock and alt-rock styles, with searing lead guitar playing, impassioned vocals, sage and sensitive lyrics, earworm hooks, and a stirring acoustic-rock foundation.
Their debut album, The Doronic Verses (Nail Soup Records), features carefully crafted contemporary rock, shaded with singer-songwriter intimacy, country flourishes, and blues-rock urgency.
