Biography

K*doll first started singing as a young child, her father, David Naughton, star of the cult classic, 'An American Werewolf in London' tells a story that one day she went into her bedroom for a very long time and when she came out she had found her voice. That voice has never left her. In fact, K*doll has spent the rest of her young life singing on stage, in vocal ensembles and fronting bands. K*doll was formerly the lead vocalist for the band Colorshow, which received a great deal of critical acclaim in it's short lifespan. After leaving Colorshow to pursue her solo project, K*doll teamed up with Nava & Benjamin Cooper of The 20/20, a husband and wife songwriting/production team, and the three are now writing and recording her debut Album, tentatively titled, 'Valley of The Doll'. The tracks heard here and on her Facebook page are previews of the new material. They showcase K*doll's powerful voice and commanding musical presence while also allowing for her vulnerable, doll-like qualities to shine. Look out for K*doll in 2011.. 2 tracks off the new unreleased album have already been selected finalists in both 12th Annual Great American Song Contest, and the International Song Writing Contest (ISC) AND have been featured in films, tv shows, and video games! With the new album on the way and a club banging live show, K*doll is poised to emerge as an irresistible talent that will compel listeners far and wide to say.."that voice came out of her?"

Lyrics

Animal

Written By: Nava Plotsky, Benjamin Cooper

Verse 1:
What’s it gonna take to get this prescription filled
Who I gotta shake down to get my thrill
I can dance all night and sip free drinks but it ain’t the same baby
No

That’s the cat got what I need
Stalking him like an animal
Breaking backs, falling through the cracks
It’s the only way I know

This affliction swallows me whole
This addiction is swallowing me

Chorus:
This high makes me feel like an animal
Ohhhhh
This high makes me feel like an animal
Ohhhhhh

Verse 2:
They always want to go out on a Saturday night
I’d rather score some more, that’s right
I got a rave pile in my head
And it’s hotter than your bed
Oh yeah…

That dj’s got what I need
Spins all night like an animal
Breaking hearts, racing up the charts
He’s my ticket to the show

This affliction swallows me whole
This addiction is swallowing me

Chorus:
This high makes me feel like an animal
Ohhhhh
This high makes me feel like an animal
Ohhhhhh

Bridge:
Got the love jones
Keep me running
Got the love jones
Keeps me coming till I want to explode
Got the love jones
Keep me running
Got the love jones
Keeps me coming to the end of my insatiable desire..

Chorus Repeat.

Dear You (FYI)

Written By: Nava Plotsky, Benjamin Cooper

Verse 1:
I can’t love you
Not the way you need me to do
I have to stand on my own
To prove I can still stand

I’m on my way now
Not the path you planned but anyhow
Doing for myself
Not relying on anyone else

Chorus:
Dear You
I’m happy on my own
Through every stick and stone
I persevered for this long
FYI

Dear You
The writing’s on the wall
I’ve made it this far
I’m holding out for amazing
FYI

Verse 2:
I spoke softly
Behind closed doors I was angry
I had to pull away
To find my own voice

I’m better now
There are things I had to disallow
Starting with myself
I’m not allowed to second guess

Bridge:
Don’t even think about coming around
There’s nothing left of yours in here
The key's no longer under the mat
Cause you’re not welcome in here
You’ve burned every bridge in your way
You can no longer get to me
I’m taking my final stand

Chorus Repeat

Carousel

Written By: Nava Plotsky, Benjamin Cooper


Verse 1:
Love fades into
Friendship falters
Civility is gone

Hopefulness turns to bitterness
I spend another night alone

You always want control
Of my mind and soul
Maybe I should just cut my losses

Get out while I can
With my heart intact
Pay attention to the voices

Chorus:
This is not the one
That love I’ve been dreaming of
I drown in wishing wells
Longing for you to love me

I’ve tried to draw the line
You cross it every time
I ride on carousels
Waiting for you to want me

So I won’t be lonely…

Verse 2:
Pain turns into
Pleasure lessons
Insanity is home

Absentness turns to anguishness
What’s another year on my own

This part is not the whole
Just a sliver of gold
I can hoard with my intentions

The promises that were made
All the love that I gave
Breaking down into justifications

Chorus

Bridge:
Oh Oh Ohhhhh
Round and round and round...

Hopeless

Written By: Nava Plotsky, Benjamin Cooper

Verse 1:
Another midnight rolls around with your voice in my head
Whispering babe, you’re barely holding on by a thread
Maybe that’s because I saw you slipping out the back door
I’m not sure you wouldn’t leave me broken and dead

Chorus:
Baby, I’m already gone
I’m already down
I’m at the brink of madness
I’m already lost and cannot be found
I’m at the brink of madness
Why do I want you when you’re hopeless?
Nah nah nah
Why do I want you when you’re hope-less
Hope- uh nah nah nah nah ….

Verse 2:
Another midnight rolls around and I can barely pretend
To go on with my life when I can obsess instead
Maybe that’s because you stole my heart without warning
Is it pointless to reveal all that was left unsaid?

Chorus

Bridge:
Why are you so insensitive
When you used to treat me special
Why do I feel so powerless
Am I just inconsequential?
Is this the end?
Is this the end?
Is this the end?
Is it hopeless?

Chorus repeat.

Break-up Song #137

Written By: Nava Plotsky, Benjamin Cooper


Intro:
Maybe you are a
Loaded gun
And I’m standing too close
To the action

Maybe you are my medicine
And I’ve taken too much
Baby, I’ve taken too much

Verse 1:
The levees doomed to break
Get that pressure high enough
It will wash us both away

I can tell you’re pleased with yourself
Cause you keep diggin, and diggin, and diggin me raw
I can’t defend myself
When you play me like a game

Chorus:
For a minute
You made me feel
That I actually
Meant something to someone

For a minute
You made me feel
That I actually
Meant something to someone

Verse 2:
Now your words all sound the same
The inflection tricks my ears
But the meanings never change

You said you’d fight to the end
But I didn’t think you meant me
Still the joke’s on you kid
I’m my own worst enemy

Chorus:
For a minute
You made me feel
That I actually meant something to someone

For a minute
You mad me feel
That I actually meant something to someone

I am fortune’s fool
But I wouldn’t want what’s coming to you
Your nothing to no one

I took the best of you
One day I’m gonna make it true
I’ll be
Somebody’s someone
I’ll be
Somebody’s someone

Sirens

Written By: Nava Plotsky, Benjamin Cooper

Verse 1:
Sirens
Ring out at night
While I am dreaming of the sunny side
Resting
Peacefully
Like fairytales I used to believe
I was singing my songs
And nothing could get me off
My happy, floating cloud
Drifting above the …

Secret I hold
The secret I’ve been hiding
The secret I hold
The secret kept quiet by the sirens

Chorus:
I’m still not over you
I’m just stumbling through this lonely town
At night I cut my skin just to watch myself bleed
And God knows I have tried
God knows I have tried to let you go

Verse 2:
Laundry
And then pay rent
Time to look for another job
Workout
Call my friends
Have some drinks until we pass out
This routine’s killing me
When days become weeks become years
Pretending all is well
While suffering from this

Passion I hold
This passion I’ve been hiding
The passion I hold
Passion kept quiet by the sirens

Chorus:
I’m still not over you
I’m just stumbling through this lonely town
At night I cut my skin just to watch myself bleed
And God knows I have tried
God knows I have tried to let you go

Bridge:
I’m so sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time
I wear my heart but hide my scars under my sleeves
It’s time to sharpen knifes and pick up razor blades
It’s either press down hard or walk away
