Dominic Seifert aka TheDoDo was born in 1995 in Neu-Ulm. Since his parents couldn’t take care of him in his early years, TheDoDo grew up with his grandparents before he moved with his parents to a small town near Stuttgart. Shortly before starting school, his father was arrested. He was later sentenced to four years in prison for pushing cars. Since his mother was unable to take care of him and his younger twin sisters at the time, the children were ordered to be placed in foster care. At the age of ten, however, Dominic was able to return to his father, who was given custody of his son back under strict conditions. After several aborted apprenticeships and odd jobs, TheDoDo finally decided last year for a career as a musician. The young talent has an extraordinary way of combining deep lyrics with melancholic vocals. With the single “Endorphine” he achieved a real surprise hit. To date, the song has been downloaded and streamed 30 million times.
