The Dorothy-Jane Band
November 6 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Canberra-based Australian singer, songwriter and blues-harp player, since 1995 Dorothy-Jane has performed in and fronted numerous Blues, Jazz and Roots acts, played countless gigs in Australasia playing Blues, Jazz and Folk clubs, house concerts, country halls, fundraisers for breast cancer support, corporate events and private parties, and released 8 albums and 2 EP’s.
Her lyrics, performance and presence are brave and unpretentious. She is a survivor, willing and able to bare her soul through her music. Dorothy-Jane is driven to use her music as a platform to shed light on dark topics. Her songs draw on her lived experiences – cancer, addictions, mental health, relationships and sexual abuse to name a few.
Currently living with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer has slowed Dorothy-Jane down a bit but hasn’t stopped her recording a thirteen-track concept album, “The Witness”.
With over 20 years in the business Dorothy-Jane also has a large body of previous recordings available under these pseudonyms – KarismaKatz, DJ Gosper, DeeJay Gosper, Hot Flush Blues Band, Divine Devilles, Dorothy-Jane with Richard Steele, Jeff & Deej – you can find these on most streaming platforms.
