Victoria Doramus, a renowned fashion and trends expert, marketer and creative designer, is one of the lucky individuals who discovered they needed help with drug addiction before they completely ruined their lives. The recovery expert first went into rehab at the age of 26 in Sierra Tucson but left after 45 days with a better realization of herself but no understanding of drug addiction. She tried changing her circle of friends and even moving to a different state from LA, but still had the addiction problem. Victoria resolved to join a rehab in Connecticut, and instead of getting the required help, her dependence on self-reliance caused her the friends and family she had and ended up hunting for a doctor in Manhattan.
In January 2017, Victoria Doramus decided to go to the Burning Tree, a rehabilitation center in Austin, Texas where she stayed locked in with minimal outside communication. In the center, she followed the 12 step program that was the principle of the organization. Alongside other patients, they had busy day times starting at 5:45 Am with planned activities ranging from prayers to AA meeting in the night. They were talked out of victimizing themselves and accepting their situations so that they could work on changing.
Eight months into the program, Victoria Doramus was fit enough to check out and went to work in Dallas for a few months to raise some money to see her mother, a cancer patient in Tennessee and also help keep her actively involved in the society. She eventually flew to New York and became a part of addiction movements that helped drug addicts through their recovery journey. Despite having recovered, she still sees her addiction therapist who helps her maintain her state of sobriety.She believes that it takes an individual to accept they are suffering from drug addiction in order to get help.

The pair met in New York City. Pall explains initially, he was doing a number of gigs DJ’ing and he also had experience with social media, whereas Andrew’s main talent was producing. After they met, they immediately began working together and doing so for long hours. Their dedication to creating has allowed them to be almost two years ahead. The songs we are just now listening to, are songs they wrote over a year ago.
The song “Closer” features Halsey and Andrew Taggart singing. Pall indicates his enthusiasm working with Halsey, describing her as incredible. He also shares his appreciation for her voice and unique style. The inclusion of Taggart singing is just one of many steps initiated by this duo to continue their unique style, while still garnering the interest of a wide audience.

He’s learned that the audience has grown from a youthful college crowd to an even younger crowd and now also includes older people. There is an excitement in developing music that appeals across so many different identities.
