  • DOry PreVINdory PrEvin was an influential American lyricist, singer-songwriter, playwright and poet. During her lifetime, Previn released six acclaimed albums of original songs, including ON MY WAY TO WHERE, MARY C. BROWN AND THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN, MYTHICAL KINGS AND IGUANAS and REFLECTIONS IN A MUD PUDDLE. She was the lyricist of several Oscar nominated songs, including Youre Gonna Hear From Me and Come Saturday Morning. After a successful period in Hollywood in the 1960s, collaborating with her then-husband Andre Previn on numerous popular songs for film - including Faraway Part of Town and Theme from Valley of the Dolls, Ms. Previn rose to prominence in the 1970s, writing and performing a remarkable collection of powerful, witty and haunting songs chronicling her own often harrowing autobiographical experiences, with extraordinary honesty, passion, humor and insight. Ms. Previn also wrote several works for the stage, including a musical version of her acclaimed album MARY C. BROWN AND THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN and several autobiographical works of nonfiction including BOG TROTTER and MIDNIGHT BABY. Ms. Previn passed away in 2012 at the age of 86.


    Dory Previns lyrics are first-rate poems, which is a rarity. Dory Previn is a poet and that is rarer still.

    Dory Previn defines the word extraordinary. She has lived through more in this lifetime than many of us can hope to live in several.

    And she has put it all down on paper.
