Biography

Felicia “Fefe” Dobson (born February 28, 1985 in Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Her self-titled debut album, earned her two Juno Award nominations. Her second album Sunday Love was not released due to the album’s singles failure to chart and she was dropped from her record label. (Sunday Love become an underground sensation when it leaked on the Internet.)

Dobson co-wrote Miley Cyrus’ single “Start All Over” and in 2010 she released her third studio album “Joy”.

Dobson was discovered and signed by Jive Records in 2000. The record label wanted to give her a traditional pop star image. Dobson, however, wanted more guitar and to include some of her own written songs. Jive rejected the idea, so she left the record company. She found herself singing in a Toronto bar at 8:30 in the morning. It turned out a CEO at The Island Def Jam Music Group was in the bar that very morning. He wanted to sign her. They signed her up on the wrong lyrics. She sang her song “Stupid Little Love Song” and what the people thought she sang was “Stupid Little Buzz Saw” which they thought was “genius”.

She met producer Jay Levine through Island Records and they began working on her music. “He just really let me be free. He found something in me that he really thought was special, it was just fate”. When in the recording studio, she hung up inspirational pictures of Kurt Cobain, Judy Garland, Coldplay, Jeff Buckley and The Vines, to help motivate her sound and to commemorate the artists who influenced her.
