The best kept secret in music


"The Sundsvall Swedish Times"

"She treats and mistreats her guitar until it suits her passionate vocals, she is undoubtedly something very special." - Eva Kjeller

"Billboard Magazine"

... feather-light melodies and insinuating hooks...
her songs are as intellectually stimulating as they
are emotionally empathetic.

- Larry Flick

"CMJ New Music Report"

Dorothy's soft, haunting bellows at once startle and soothe, serving to animate her spacious expressions.

- Bill Konig

"Collected Sounds"

Dorothy Scott one of those voices that when you hear her, depending on if you're familiar with her sound, you either say, "oh it's obviously Dorothy Scott" or "Wow, who is this?". By that I mean you probably won't mistake her for anyone else. It's quite unique. That being said there are times when she reminds me of Heather Nova. It's not often or even obvious, but after listening to the first track "Julie" I found that I had Nova's "Winterblue" song in my head.

It's so nice to hear something unexpected. From the cover of the CD I expected slightly jazzy, sophisticated (maybe a little uppity) AAA. But when I got instead is indescribable pop, rock, folk, combo with a jazzy feel. Not uppity at all, but still sophisticated in that it's well written and expertly performed.

Give this one a listen, you won't regret it.

Feeling a bit camera shy
