About Dot Dot Dot
“What makes you smile?” is a question often posed by Dot Dot Dot, serving as both a chorus on their latest EP as well as a method of operation regarding the elements of songwriting, production, and performance. The band’s pop-rock songs are lively yet introspective, and often involve stories about damaged relationships set against uplifting musical backdrops. The result is a growing catalog of memorable moments across four EP releases: Dot Dot Dot (2007), I (2009), II (2010), and III (2011).
Dot Dot Dot presents an intense live show with the refinement of seasoned pop professionalism. Since coming together in 2007, the band has performed over 700 shows and sold thousands of CDs – all without record label support. The co-ed quintet may be familiar to some as finalists on FOX TV’s “American Idol” spin-off show, “The Next Great American Band,” during its 2007 season. High-profile shows have followed, including appearances at the Sundance Film Festival, a VH1 Save the Music benefit, events for WGN, T-Mobile, Victoria’s Secret, Wrigley, and an invite to perform at President Obama’s 2010 “Moving America Forward” rally in Chicago.
Radio single “Stay” broke the Top 100 Mediabase Adult Contemporary chart in 2010, and EPs I and II charted on the CMJ Top 200 and have been spun on over 180 college radio stations nationwide. Dot Dot Dot has penned songs for national ad campaigns including Party City, the Florida Gators, the Kentucky Derby, Jeep, and “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.” A number of the band’s songs have also been placed in the latest season of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Bad Girls Club.” All releases are available on iTunes, Amazon, and www.dotdotdotonline.com.
