Biography

Sometimes creativity can only properly thrive in exile, at a necessary distance from the familiar. So it has proved for Tina Dico, a 31 year old singer songwriter who left the safe and sociable world of her native Denmark 8 years ago, and upped sticks for a city where she knew nobody and nobody knew her: London.

Here, based in a flat in Ladbroke Grove, Dico lived alone. She walked a lot ... Read more in Amazon's Tina Dico Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

After two successful EP's and a jaunt in 2004 singing with Zero 7 (she was the voice behind "Home") Danish singer/songwriter Tina Dico now releases her own debut album. Titled In The Red, the project has been produced by Chris Potter (The Verve, Blur, Richard Ashcroft) who provides a well-polished sheen, ensuring the album is accessible and immediate. Dico’s songs are already easy to like though. She breathes her strong vocals over tracks that tend towards the folk-pop realm, first single from the album, "Warm Sand’ (culled from her 2004 Far EP) being a good example of her approach. Most of the tracks here are radio-friendly love songs that glow with Potter’s lush orchestral instrumentation, combined with the occasional melancholic reverie. Songs such as "Room With A View" offer languorous acoustic moods, while opening gambit "Losing" combines downbeat verses with a catchy chorus. It might not have the same ‘chill-out’ credentials as Zero 7, but In The Red is a luxuriant listen all the same.--Paul Sullivan

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, a real builder. 30 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Tina on Zero 7's 2nd album and fell in love with her voice. I saw her play at the 12 Bar Club in London and she blew me away. Since then, I've bought "Far", which is superb and recently bought "In the Red", which is more accomplished than her first. Initially the album didn't grab me, although Tina's voice stood out as being exceptional. After REALLY listening to "In the Red" a couple of times, the record has completely drawn me in. Tina's voice is quite unlike anyone else's: feminine, powerful and earthy, as many before, yet she has no peer. This record is captivating once you understand its vocabulary. The songs are beautiful, honest and heartfelt, full of hope, heartbreak and love. I can't stop listening to it. I hope Tina's next record is as good, perhaps with more presence from the band behind her fantastic voice. In the meantime, buy this record because you won't be disappointed, and if you get chance, see Tina in concert while it's relatively easy to do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 17 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've never bothered writing an amazon.co.uk review in the past, but decided to make an exception for this album. It is absolutely beautiful, full of some really haunting and etherial melodies.
It seems like her time with Zero 7 has rubbed off on this album, as some of the tracks have the same feel.
I stumbled over Tina Dico's music by accident and am absolutely stunned by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars From Zero 7 to 10 out of 10 29 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
Tina Dico is best known as a vocalist with Zero 7. Now she shows what a great talent she is by writing a superb album which literally grows on you with every listen.Every track is excellent although my favourite is 'One'.A follow up album is promised for next year and when you buy Red you will definitely want the next one.A DVD of Tina in concert is also available if you search for it and is also worth buying. Great music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tina, I'm so glad I found you 4 Jun 2006
By Chappers TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Aah, Tina Dico. Where have you been all my life?

I'd had this artist suggested to me by the Music Genome Project based on other styles of music I liked. I played a gamble and bought this CD, and I have been totally taken a-back by how impressive it is.

This is a calm and relaxing CD, one which I could listen to over and over again. I find it really quite strange that I'd never heard any of these songs before, going by how nice they all are. How can such talent be kept hidden for so long?

In my opinion, if you like artists such as Annie Lennox, Tunde, Norah Jones and Katie Melua as bigger-named examples, you will fall straight in love with Tina's pure and wholesome sound.

Favourite tracks on the CD are "The City", "Give In", "My Mirror" and "One".

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Not "Your Waste Of Time" 29 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
Tina has a rare, exceptional talent, and as has been said, there will be at least one stand-out track on this album that touches you.
I prefer the version of "Warm Sand" from "Far", but my favourite is another re-worked track "My Mirror". The title track is sublime too.
Unfortunatley, the tracks aren't "poppy" enough for our blinkered radio stations to play during peak listening times, but hopefully those alrady in the know will pass on the torch.
Apart from "Far", make sure you find time to search for her other albums, "Fuel" & "Notes". You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best female singer/songwriters about 16 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
Tina Dico's warm, alluring voice in Zero7 left me eager to hear her solo efforts. I already have "Far," which seems more personal than "In the Red," but less developed. "In the Red" is a melancholic album that perfectly balances catchy choruses with relatively profound lyrics. It doesn't stand out on first listen, and I do think that some of the songs, espcially her new version of "Warm Sand", are over edited, but it certainly grows on you. "Head Shop" and "My Mirror" are particularly good. Do check out "Far" as well, though. Dico has an outstanding voice and I can't wait to hear her live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danish Diamond 14 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
She was always a singer songwriter in her own right from a young age, winning numerous awards in her home country. Zero 7 were given an excellent contribution from this artist and with this her first full length studio album in the UK she has demonstrated continued imaginative creativity. Her voice itself makes each song distinctive and Warm Sand was always going to be a winner. Creating imagery with words it what she does best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Her youtube videos sound better.
My expectations may have been a little too high for this album after watching her youtube videos. I do recommend her music! She is wonderful. Her live stuff I think is better.
