The Rodeo is the anagram of Dorothee, a sassy Parisian musician and singer. She discovered music at the age of 15, when she found an acoustic guitar in her uncle’s attic. This magical key opened the door to the most beautiful journeys, both real and imaginary.
After making a name for herself with her first two albums (Music Maelström and La Musica Del Diavolo), recorded all over the world, her last album entitled Thérianthropie Paradis is mostly influenced by the highly orchestrated European pop of the 60s and 70s. This last creation features songs written entirely in French.
Dorothee’s sensual and evocative mother tongue guides her songwriting and voice onto new paths, full of hidden trails and nuances. A harmonic lushness that in no way detracts from the music’s clarity and fullness. Au contraire. Rarely, in France we heard such ambition and mastery as we do on “Ivre d’amour,” her first single, which condenses all the colors of this album so as to project them more vibrantly onto the walls. What colors? Red, of course. Carmine, vermilion, crimson. Blood, wine, lips and summer fruit.
