Biography

Tina Dico (born as Tina Dickow on October 14, 1977 in Aarhus, Denmark) is a singer and songwriter, inspired by artists such as Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen.

Tina Dico was born in Aabyhøj near Aarhus. At a very young age she was introduced to music by her father who owned a big hifi-system in their basement.

After public school, she attended a music boarding school, and after that she went to high school. Music was still her passion and during her first years she performed with the cover band, Fester Kester.

In 1997 while attending her third year at high school, she was cast to the erotic TV-series, Karrusel (Carrousel), (inspired by the famous play Reigen (La Ronde)) where she starred with Peter Steen and Michael Falch (produced 1997, broadcast 1998 on Danish TV2). After her performance she was offered several parts but didn’t like to be recognized as the “naive girl from Jutland” which was why she refused every offer.

In 1998, Tina Dico introduced the other members of the band Fester Kester to a song of her own, and their enthusiasm made them enter, and win, two talent contests the same year: “Talentspot” on Danish TV2, and “Vi har scenen, har I musikken?” (We have the stage, do you have the music?) in Aarhus.

The band “Tina Dickow and Sheriff” was formed in 1998 and later that year the single “Your Waste of Time” was released. It was picked as “Song of the Week” on Danish National Radio, P3, and lead to some degree of fame.
