About Fuel On Fire:

Growing up in the shadow of the mist from Niagara Falls, the Doerfel youngsters were home schooled by Cheryl, the family matriarch and a music teacher by trade. As part of the children’s daily schoolwork she incorporated music lessons on various instruments. It became evident early on that the Doerfel kids were born to play. Tom, their father began having them work up traditional bluegrass songs and with him on stand-up bass, Cheryl on guitar, daughter Kim on fiddle, oldest son TJ with his banjo, Edward on mandolin, and ginger-headed Ben on guitar, the Doerfel Family Bluegrass Band was born.  They got so good they took the show on the road and before the boys even had hair in their  armpits, crammed in various vans, RV’s and buses, the Doerfels made the rounds at fairs, festivals, and any other stage they could make a living on.
After playing a few shows in Key West, Florida while visiting a family member there, theDoerfels fell in love with the southernmost and began to play several beach bars in residency, younger brother Kurt now in the band behind the drums and brother Joe taking over on bass. They even released a song and video called “Big Pine Song” sharing their
affection for the island that became their home.
As they came of age, their taste in music morphed from Bill Monroe to Switchfoot, U2, and the aforementioned Coldplay, and their sharp-as-knives musicianship gave them the tools to bring the music in their heads to life. In Key West, they developed a reputation as a must-see. Even TJs 3-year-old boy Jake got into the act, bringing the house down on a regular basis singing and playing mandolin. Kim got married and started a family. TJ did too. And then there were four Doerfels left in the band. With their new sound and direction, Edward, Ben, Joe, and Kurt changed theband’s name in 2017 to Fuel on Fire.
Before moving to Nashville permanently, Ben and Edward, who share lead vocal duties and are guitarist and keyboard/mandolin player of the band respectively, spent a year making monthly trips to write with some of the best songwriter/producers in town. The result was their 2017 Think EP, a self-produced project featuring songs Ben and Edward co-wrote with the likes of Zac Maloy (Daughtry, Plain White T’s, Carrie Underwood), Brock Berryhill
(Twenty One Pilots, Halestorm), and Terry Sawchuk (Alanis Morrisette, Smash Mouth).
