Biography

Music started as a side project for Charlie Dore while she was in school for drama. She quickly formed her own band, Charlie Dore's Back Pocket, playing locally in pubs and clubs in the London circuit. It was in London that the band was spotted by Chris Blackwell and signed to Island Records. The single "Pilot of the Airwaves," off her debut album, Where to Now, reached number 11 in the United States. Though the album was recorded stateside in Nashville, it resulted in her being voted Best New Female Singer by Record World Magazine. Her second album, Listen, was supported by tours in Australia and Japan, where she represented Great Britain in the Tokyo Song Festival. Taking a break from song, Dore returned to acting after her second album. She appeared in many English productions, including The Ploughman's Lunch with Tim Curry and Frank Finlay. She also acted in a long list of television shows, movies, and on stage in Repertory at Newcastle. In 1995, Dore released her third album, Things Change, on Grapevine with a range of collaborators and musicians lending their talents. An Italian production team, Souled Out heard her track "Time Goes By" and remixed it into a dance track that went big in European dance markets. With the success of the single, Dore found herself doing vocals on more electronic music-based songs. She has appeared on tracks for Slacker and collaborations with Simon Rodgers. Dore is also a credible songwriter, as she has written tracks for Tina Turner, Celine Dion, Barry Manilow, and Yaz. ~ Diana Potts
