Brent Doerner began his musical career at the age of 12 playing drums. Shortly thereafter, he turned his attention to guitar. By age 16 he met Brian Vollmer and joined Helix. This turned out to be a life long friendship and music business relationship.
Brent was instrumental to the band’s sound right from the start. On Helix’s first independent album Breaking Loose (1977) Brent penned the Helix classic Billy Oxygen. On the first Helix E.M.I. album No Rest For The Wicked he co-wrote another Helix standard The Dirty Dog. Other notable Helix songs Brent has had a hand in writing are Bend Over Kiss (Your Ass Goodbye) Shot Full of Love, Bangin’ Off Of The Bricks, and Christine.
Brent joined Helix around 1975 and left in 1988, after 13 years of having his fingerprints all over Helix. It had been a long grind for all of us, and Brent decided to take a break from the music business. During his time away from music he started several companies which were successful.
In 2006 Brent was determined to make another album, and started writing again. By late 2006, he revealed the end result: a CD released under the name Brent Doerner's Decibel, garnering very positive reviews. In 2009 the band released another CD renaming the band “My Wicked Twin.” Now he’s back in the lineup and his influence on the Helix “sound” can be heard on Vagabond Bones, the band’s latest release. Be sure to catch Helix on the road to see this talented musician/singer/and entertainer.
