Dido Biography

Review The Artist (29)

Dido-photo
Born: December 25,1971
Hometown: London, England

Dido was five when she stole her first recorder. This didn't lead to prison, but rather to her entrance one year later to the Guildhall School of Music in London. A bit of a child prodigy, by the time she was 10 she played piano, violin, and the aforementioned recorder.

Her teenage years were an interesting mixture of stealing her brother's record collection (from The Clash to Gregory Isaac's to Duran Duran) and touring the UK with her classical music ensemble and then, at 16, she finally fell in love... with Ella Fitzgerald.

So began a passion that eventually led Dido from listener to participator. She started singing with various bands in and around London, and despite the fact that her brother, Rollo, told her not to give up her day job, she eventually appeared on the debut album of a band that Rollo formed in 1995.

This band was faithless, and they went on to sell in excess of five million records. Over the next two years, Dido toured with faithless (a very different experience from her classical days) and, whenever she was back in London, also recorded demos of her own songs.

On Faithless's current release, Sunday 8pm, Dido appears on two songs, one of which incorporates her own "My Lover's Gone." Arista records heard these demos at the beginning of 1997, and Dido was invited to the Dorchester hotel in London to meet Clive Davis. the meeting was successful (Clive even helped out with some of the backing vocals as Dido sung to him).

her voice is the one | Reviewer: ehsan | 6/29/11

i've listend to many woman singers' songs but in all of them i just belive in 3 of them that the first is amy lee the singer of evanescence who has a real warm, sad voice, the second is dido that i do belive her voice is the mildest voice i've ever heard and she is the first in pop and the third is rihanna that her voice is really so warm and i love it.
dido really sings her songs with her heart and makes everyone really relax i hope she will sing forever for her fans and i wish she was my friend.
i'm really in love with her songs

You are God's gift to our generation | Reviewer: Lanre | 10/11/10

Dido is one of the few artists on earth that i'm totally enraptured with. She sings with a touch that i strongly believe is beyond this world. Whenever i'm tensed up and i need someone to lift me up, she's always there for me with her unique voice, rhythms and lyrics. Amazingly, there's not a single one of her songs that i didn't rate as star 5 out of 5. I only wish she realize that someone from Nigeria is madly deeply in love with ALL of her songs. Hi five from one of your strongest fans.

Black love | Reviewer: HENRY ATA | 7/6/10
