Drawing from Americana and Indie Rock, dolman is music for people who like to listen to the words, and can smell a rat.


dolman is Ken Dolman's chosen moniker as a solo artist; troubadour style. Ken has been active in the music world for the last six years . As the frontman & main songwriter in No North, he cultivated an audience in Los Angeles at venues like Hotel Cafe, Spaceland, Knitting Factory & The Echo. The band's self released albums drew critical praise and eventually won them a record contract with Country Fire Records in the UK. A successful 2005 UK tour included a top 30 album on iTunes, and international press in Mojo Magazine. Back in the US, they found opening slots with: Daniel Lanois, Mike Watt, Stan Ridgeway,The Earlies, Akron Family, radio play in Los Angeles, Austin, on NPR and XM, and a licensed song for CBS. They were happy to perform at South By Southwest 2006 in Austin, TX with Tom Freund. After five years of hard work, No North is on hiatus, and dolman is pursuing a more acoustic approach to the music he writes. The new record, simply titled "dolman", is Ken's first solo release. Produced by Greg Richling, (Wallflowers, Fiona Apple) the album was written on the road in Europe with simplicity in mind, while lyrically maintaining a sense of humor in its outlook on modern life and the struggles it holds.



Set List

I usually play originals, but sometimes cover songs by 80's indie/punk bands. I can play for hours if the vibe is right.
