Jeff's Weekly Pick: Tina Dico @ Anthology Thursday February 10, 2011

Danish singer songwriter Tina Dico (nee Dickow) has been quite busy of late. She recently released her seventh album, Welcome Back Colour, in Europe with an early 2011 release date in North America. The album contains a total of 27 songs, a mix of new, acoustic and favorites from her previous work. What distinguishes Tina from most of her cohorts is her individuality in both her singing and profession. She decided to start her own label, Finest Gramophone, back in 2000. Rather than recruit other artists to her label, her main objective was to have an outlet to maintain creative control. Moving to England in 2002 to stimulate this creativity was a part of the process. While achieving great success in her homeland, gaining a worldwide audience has proven to be a much taller task. Tina returned to her native Denmark to live in 2009.

Tina Dico has played in San Diego several times, from the Casbah to the smaller stage at the House of Blues. She has a powerful yet soothing vocal delivery. Many fans know her from her stint with Zero 7, which was a wonderful match for both. Watching her perform in the near perfect (acoustic) room at Anthology should prove to be a wonderful evening for all in attendance.
