WHO IS FEFE DOBSON
FEFE is an English, French, Jamaican Canadian singer, songwriter from Toronto, Canada.
FEFE’S self-titled debut album, Fefe Dobson was released December 9, 2003, by Island records, and sold over 300,000 copies in the United States. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard HeatSeekers Album Chart. Her sophomore studio album Joy released in 2010, earned two Canadian certified platinum singles and a gold single with a collaboration with legendary music producer Bob Ezrin (KISS, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel) and recording artist Orianthi. The album debuted to critical acclaim and also won several awards including Canadian Radio Music Awards and a Much Music Video Award.
2011 FEFE joined the cast of an independent film titled Home Again, as the supporting role of Cherry C., a character of Jamaican descent. This feature film acting role earned her a nomination at the 2012 Canadian Screen Award for Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role and debuted at TIFF in 2012.
She has penned songs for Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Jordin Sparks, and has written in the past with Joan Jett, Cyndi Lauper, and Rancid’s Tim Armstrong.
Now, 2016 FEFE has written and recorded a new album – new vision – new ideas.
Hid away in Nashville, TN, she went back to the drawing board on her own and made the album she had always dreamt of making. Orchestrating and marrying strings, trumpets with tremolo guitar while incorporating vintage gear and drum programming were all major aspects of bringing this album to life. FEFE’S new album combines her love for art pop, Yé-Yé 60’s French pop, experimental rock and alternative hip-hop.
