From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Dolores O'Riordan (born September 6, 1971) is an Irish singer.

She was the lead vocalist for The Cranberries for thirteen years before she left the band in persuit of a solo career in 2003. Born the youngest of seven on September 6, 1971 in Ballybricken, Ireland, she tried out for a band called the Cranberry Saw Us (later changed to the Cranberries) in 1990.

She got married on July 18, 1994 to the tour manager of Duran Duran Don Burton.

The band released three albums Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? (1993), No Need To Argue (1994), and To The Faithful Departed (1996) before the birth of O'Riordan's first child Taylor Baxter Burton on November 23, 1997. A new album Bury The Hatchet was released in 1999 and after a new tour Dolores celebrated the birth of her second child Molly Burton on January 27, 2001 which was coincidentally the birthday of her husband Don.

Two more releases followed, their fifth album Wake Up And Smell The Coffee and their best of completion entitled Stars: The Best of The Cranberries 1992-2002, before the foreseen breakup in 2003.

O'Riordan was supposed to appear on the soundtrack for Spiderman 2 with her song Black Widow but the song was edited off. On April 10, 2005, Dolores celebrated the birth of a new baby girl Dakota Rain Burton. Dolores has also appeared on the album Zucchero & Co. with the song Pure Love. The album also featured other superstars such as Sting and Eric Clapton.

Her first album is persumed to be released sometime next year but with no official news no one is quite sure when it will be released.

Sources have revealed that she has signed the former drummer for Therapy? Graham Hopkins to her album.
