Wellington-based Helen is known in the NZ folk scene for delivering “songs full of charm”. Reviewers call her “an acoustic folk artist in an honest sense” (NZ Musician, 2009), writing "beautifully-crafted, intelligent songs rich in memorable imagery" (fRoots Magazine, 2014). Her original material, often inspired by the natural world, is supported by some innovative guitar playing and a “clear, melodious voice” (NZ Musician, 2014).

The UK’s essential folk, roots and world music guide−fRoots−selected her second studio album ‘Watching Ghosts...and Other Songs’ as a favourite in January 2014, and featured the quirky ‘Tractor Jean’ on their radio playlist and a compilation album. On this latest release, Helen collaborates with other Wellington artists, primarily double bassist Richard Prowse and violinist Fiona Smythe. Their instruments, in various combinations with Dorothy’s acoustic guitar, mandola or piano, form the album’s song foundations, and there are musical contributions from award-winning jazz musician Kevin Clark, Celtic multi-instrumentalist Oscar West and guitarist (sound engineer) Robbie Duncan.

Helen last visited Titirangi Folk Music Club in 2010. She is looking forward to returning for another solo performance and hopes to engage the audience with songs from her latest album, as well as some more recent material.
