Dutch singer-songwriter/multi instrumentalist/producer, born in Jerusalem and grew up in Amsterdam.
Dotan’s musical career got off to a flying start in 2011. He had brazenly sent an e-mail containing some of his own compositions to record producers Sacha Skarbek and Martin Terefe (of James Morrison, Paul McCartney, Jason Miraz and Adele fame) and had been invited to their London studio. Dutch top DJ Giel Beelen had nominated Dotan as the most promising new talent of 2011 and singles from Dotan’s debut album Dream Parade received heavy airplay on Dutch radio stations. Dotan also opened shows for, amongst others, Gavin DeGraw and Sinead O’Connor and together with his band embarked on a massive tour of all the major clubs in the Netherlands. But the immediate success did not sit easy with him. He was constantly overtaken by the speed of events. “I felt a lot of pressure. But I put that on myself and simply couldn’t deal with it.” Slowly, the fun of making music faded and he felt it was time for a drastic change.
On January 31, 2014 Dotan released his second studio album, 7 Layers in Paradiso (Amsterdam).
The album quickly reached number 2 on the Dutch Top 100 Charts according to Dutch news website NU.nl. Home reached the first position in the Netherlands.
