British artist Dido Armstrong received a good musical education in childhood, which was later deepened with pop music experience, singing backing-vocal and writing some pieces for the popular electronic band Faithless, in which her brother Rollo was co-founder.
Along with working in a band, in the second half of the 90's the first songs for her debut album "No Angel" are being written. The album has been released in the US in 1999 and in 2001 also in Europe. Dido popularity in North America was greatly boosted by the youth series "Roswell" (available also in Latvia), where Here With Me was used as theme music becoming an absolute hit. Meanwhile, the popular British romantic Christmas comedy Love Actually plays an important role in Europe (and also in Latvia), where the soundtrack also starring Here With Me. In addition to that, Eminem decided to use a fragment from the album's second single Thank You for his hit Stan.

As a result, Dido's first album “No Angel” has sold more than 21 million copies, making it the top-selling debut by a British female artist worldwide (Nr. 1 in UK, Australia and New Zealand, Austria, France, Finland and some more countries, Nr. 2 in US). It won her several awards, including Two Brit Awards (Best British Female and Best British Album), MTV Europe Music Award (Best New Act) and a few more.
The 2nd album, “Life For Rent” (2003), also followed suit, becoming one of the all-time best-selling in the British music history. The first two albums were followed by massive concert tours lasting total 9 years.
After the next two albums, “Safe Trip Home” (2008) and “Girl Who Got Away” (2013), Dido decided to focus on her family, but in 2018 returned to writing new material. In the spring of 2019, it was released under the title “Still on My Mind”.

It came relaxing and easy: “I woke up one morning and thought I just want to work with my brother, Rollo. It’s why I got into this in the first place. We’re great together, I enjoy the company and we are so in sync. And in between having a lovely time hanging out with his family and walking the dogs, talking about music and the world, this album just sort of happened.”
With the release of a new album, it's the right time to return to the touring again.
“I am a little bit nervous about going on stage again,” admits Dido. “It’s been 15 years since I played a big show. But I think it will be fun. There’s a lot of songs that people will know and enjoy. I have nothing but great memories of singing Thank You for instance. When you are singing, and everyone is singing along, that is the ultimate feeling in a live show, there is no better thing.”
