Artist Biography by

This UK trio featured former Soul II Soul vocalist Do’Reen (b. Doreen Parker), plus Lunarci (b. Jim Barnet) and Gary Masters. Do’Reen had provided vocals for Soul II Soul’s ‘Feel Free’ and ‘Happiness’, and also worked on sessions for MC Tunes, the Moody Boyz and Don-E. It was while working for the latter that she met Lunarci (famed for ‘Communion’ and collaborations with P.M. Dawn) and Masters (behind Praise’s ‘Only You’). Together they released ‘Realise’ for Beat Fantastique in July 1992. Do’Reen went on to work on sessions as a solo artist with Peter Harder and also sued Jazzie B for underpayment on her Soul II Soul recordings.
