Dorothy performed as a singer-songwriter under the name EleventyFour for many years.
Her songs received radio play on RTE Radio 1, 2FM, Today FM Phantom, 98FM, Cork’s Red FM, Limericks 95FM, Holland Centraal (Netherlands) and WVKR (USA) and many more. The Friend Song was used in the award winning TV series The Importance Of Being Whatever.
EleventyFour released The Joy Imperative EP to rave reviews and national airplay. She has gigged all over Ireland including Whelans, The Workman’s Club, The Grand Social, Roisin Dubh, and at music festivals like Longitude, Indiependence, Hard Working Class Heroes, Vantastival and Knockanstockan. She was invited to play at Electric Picnic twice (and named one of the Best Acts at Electric Picnic by top music blogger Nialler 9).
“It would be a hard heart that couldn’t be charmed by this solo female’s acoustic vignettes that are as comedic as they are brimming with melody.” – STATE MAGAZINE
“She has The Rubberbandits’ eye for social observation, yet rarely encroaches on the offensive, instead making her observations largely reflective in nature. She tells stories in a live setting that are exceptionally interactive and amusing. It’s on stage – where those ditties clash with an array of spoken comedy – that she’s in her essence. Parts of Eleventyfour’s act hint at a Tim Minchin-esque eye for daft musical angles, but there’s ample musicianship to back it up.” – AU MAGAZINE
“…cute as a button Kimya Dawson-like songs…” – JIM CARROLL, THE IRISH TIMES
