Dolores O'Riordan - No BaggageBest known as the lead singer of Ireland’s the Cranberries, Dolores is now one of Canada’s best-kept secrets. Married to Canadian Don Burton, Duran Duran’s former tour manager, with whom she has three children, Dolores spends part of each year with her family in a log cabin “deep in the woods” of southern Ontario. Obviously, the solitude has proven fruitful. Dolores’ second solo album is filled with rich, reflective songs like “Skeleton,” “The Journey” and the starkly confessional piano ballad “Lunatic.”
