Bio

Dorothy takes a magical stance and melds the music and lyrics into a seamless, living
breathing whole. She has flowed effortlessly between genres achieving popularity in pop, folk,
blues and alternative. The common bridge is an exquisite vocal style, amazing guitar playing
and a gift for discovering the heart of a song. Her live performance is passionate and real,
fierce and funny, outspoken and vulnerable.
Often compared to Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Jeff Buckley; Dorothy’s style and sound
remain uniquely her own. The emotional honesty of Dorothy’s music, the disciplined fury of
her musicianship and the force of her vocal delivery connects her to her audience with
confidence and grace.
“PASS IT ON,” produced by Grammy winner Jim Tullio (Mavis Staples, John Martyn, Rick
Danko, etc.), Dorothy is accompanied by world class musicians Brian Blade, (Joni Mitchell,
Bob Dylan), Corky Siegel, (Siegel Schwall Band, John Prine, Joni Mitchell) Peter Erskine
(Joni Mitchell, Weather Report), Chris "Hambone" Cameron, (Sonia Dada, Bob Dylan), plus
Larry Grenadier and Jimmy Zivago to name a few. "Pass It On" is packed with many radio
friendly songs such as: "Peace Within," "Alma's Song” and "Ride These Waves." Also, a great
cover version of the Neil Young song "Tell Me Why." Listen and hear for yourself... you won't
be disappointed.
Her subsequent tours of the U.S, Ireland, Sweden and Canada left a loyal and growing
following in their wake. Along her travels, Dorothy has shared the stage with artists, CAROLE
KING, JACKSON BROWNE, JEFF BUCKLEY, JANIS IAN, JOAN ARMATRADING,
JOAN OSBORNE, THE SIEGEL SCHWALL BAND and THE FRAMES.
Dorothy grew up in New Hampshire and moved to New York City where she took up
residency at Sin-e-Café in the East Village. Currently touring the U.S and sharing time
between Brooklyn, NY and Door County, Wisconsin, Dorothy continues to draw a diverse
audience wherever she goes.
- “She treats and mistreats her guitar until it suits her passionate vocals. She is
undoubtedly something absolutely special.” -Sundsvall Swedish Times
- “Dorothy Scott’s diverse proto-folk might echo such seemingly incomparable
artists as Kate Bush, Ani DiFranco, and Richard Thompson, but the New York based
singer-songwriter wisely chooses to avoid living in those shadows. Her complex
harmonies and aggressively fluid guitar highlight 2003’s Restless Machinery,
demonstrating a thoroughly modern depth and expansiveness that many of her
acoustic-based peers fail to provide. Live, Scott goes it alone, but she still manages
to provide a riveting, expressive show.” -The Onion
