About Dorothea Paas:
"I am a guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter from Toronto, Ontario
I’ve been playing shows around Canada & the US since 2011, sometimes alone and sometimes with the support of talented friends Liam Cole (Little Kid) and Paul Saulnier (PS I Love You), and in the past, Graeme Stewart (Monomyth), Kritty Uranowski (Lavender Bruisers) and Mark Streeter (False Face). Sometimes if I’m really lucky, I can get Felicity Williams and Robin Dann of Bernice and Isla Craig to sing harmonies with me!
So far I have made five tapes, and I’m in the process of releasing my ~~~debut~~~ full length album, ‘Anything Can’t Happen’, on Telephone Explosion Records. The album was recorded at Fort Rose studio in Hamilton and Palace studio in Toronto, and mixed by Max Turnbull (US Girls, Badge Époque Ensemble)."
