Dorlis is the stage name for a Japanese musician from Okayama, Okayama Prefecture. She started out in classical guitar, but at about age 17 became a street musician and dropped out of high school. In time she became a jazz and swing musician. Her music has at times been deemed nostalgic because of its Swing Revival style. This makes her work somewhat analogous to American swing revivalists like The Brian Setzer Orchestra or Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, though stylistically it is more similar to 1920s and 1930s swing jazz such as Django Reinhardt's. She is primarily a jazz singer, though also is a guitarist.She is currently signed with Avex Group's Rhythm Zone sublabel. She is formerly connected with Victor Entertainment.
