Hailing from Warsaw, Poland, DOR LATA brings a unique East-European flavor to 'Chrissie Hynde-meets-Kate Bush' style rock and pop songs. Classically educated as a teenager and with formal opera training, Dor Lata offers seasoned songwriting experience with inescapable vocal talent and graceful yet powerful stage presence. After achieving regional success in her homeland, Dor finally broke out of Poland and spent three years touring throughout Europe and Canada. Dor's experience and acclaim from the road overseas offered her an edge when she finally arrived in New York City. Her style, unlike anything local audiences had seen, quickly attracted underground attention in the typical roster of singer/songwriter clubs in the Village (Bitter End, Elbow Room, Arelene Grocery, CB's Gallery, Mercury Lounge). Dor befriended guitarist Ann Klein (Natalie Imbruglia, Joan Osborne) and attracted the attention of producer Larry Mitchell (Tracy Chapman, Billy Squire). Dor recorded an EP in 2001, demonstrating her unique style and her hook-laden songs while singing about life and love in her new home in the United States. Dor's EP gained the attention of Bob Leone and The Songwriters' Hall of Fame, where she was invited to participate in a feature showcase in December 2001. Her song 'Hypnotize Me' was a semi-finalist at MakeaStar.com, while getting airplay on radio stations in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania regions. Dor recorded a truly unique version of the Doors' song, 'The Spy,' included on the Skipping Discs' compilation, LOVE HER MADLY. Dor's successful EP parlayed into her first full-length CD released Spring 2003. Produced by Larry Mitchell and with several songs co-written by lyricist Sherry Stearn, Dor also includes a special track sung in her native Polish. Dor was recently discovered by Steve Zuckerman, founder and chairman of the Global Entertainment and Media Summit, who has offered her several showcasing opportunities. Dor has three videos completed and her song, 'Stay,' was featured by filmmaker Frank Slaten in his short, WINTER CHILL.
