Originally a founder of ONE DOVE in 1991, Dot released one LP, "Morning
Dove White", a Weatherall-produced post-club classic. She then signed
to Heavenly Records and in 1999 released her critically acclaimed debut
solo LP, "AFTERGLOW", whose classic-pop beauty featured collaborations
with Mani (Stone Roses), Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), Arab Strap
and Hal David, among others. Following AFTERGLOW's release, Dot toured
internationally for a year before settling back into the studio to
record "WE ARE SCIENCE", her Dave Fridmann/Keith
Tenniswood/self-produced second solo LP, released in 2002.
In 2003 and
2004 Dot found herself performing before huge audiences as a featured
guest artist with MASSIVE ATTACK on two of their world tours, and
composed a few songs with them along the way. She then performed on the
'Bilo Albion' acoustic tour, co-headlining with PETER DOHERTY on several
songs they had written together, after which she joined his band THE
BABYSHAMBLES for their 'Stone Me What A Life' tour in 2004, again
singing all her collaborations with Peter and playing glockenspiel on
several LIBERTINES' songs.
At the end of 2004 Dot went back into the
recording studio to focus on her solo music. Her recent EP "BENEATH THE
IVY" (released August 18th, 2006 on Universal Digital) was produced by Tim
Simenon and Geoff Smith, and mastered by Kramer (producer of Low, Daniel
Johnston and Galaxie 500 among many others)... There is also a duet
between Dot and BOBBY GILLESPIE of the song, "Up Against the Wall Red
Neck Mother", as yet unreleased.
As a result of a mutual love
for each other's creativity and perspective, Dot has recorded a
collection of intensely auto-biographical songs with the legendary
Kramer. In her own words, this new full-length work is her "No Other".
Being a fan of the late Gene Clark this was her preferred parallel
record. These deeply personal songs are very vocal and harmony-heavy,
all guided by KRAMER'S production and arrangement genius bearing what is
a sublime meeting of minds.
THE ALBUM "EXALTATION OF LARKS" IS NOW
COMPLETED. This forthcoming release transports the listener back to the
pre-psychedelia of "Dusty In Memphis" and "Pet Sounds".
