HIS, HERS & OURS

Eric Bazilian (The Hooters) & Tania Doko (Bachelor Girl)

Performing iconic songs you love & sharing the stories behind them

International artists /songwriters Eric Bazilian & Tania Doko share more than artistry, song writing and live performing in common - they are forever bonded by their Scandinavian ‘second home’ - Sweden. Both ex pats who married Swedes, their cathartic, creative friendship was born in Stockholm; navigating long, dark winters and making songs together was their refuge and happy place. Although living mostly in their respective home countries today, they stay connected through music, storytelling and of course, Sweden. 

And since Eric wants to visit down under, they’re hitting the road together!

It’s been almost 40 years since Eric toured Australia with U.S hit makers The Hooters, fronting his band to the present day, enjoying sell out tours in Europe and the US. Equally as impressive is Eric’s extraordinary accomplishments as a   songwriter, musician and producer - including writing the three-time Grammy nominated ‘One of Us’, creating the unforgettable guitar parts to Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ & ‘Time After Time’, popular releases with Robbie Williams, Billie Myers and cowriting/producing the Double Platinum follow up to Amanda Marshall’s massively successful debut album. 

The parallel with Tania Doko is uncanny. Also lead singer of much loved Bachelor Girl (Buses & Trains the most played Australian composition on Oz radio over the last 25 years), the band still boasts frequent bookings on the Oz festival circuit, sharing bills with heavyweights as John Farnham, Icehouse, and Simple Minds (Feb 2024). As a songwriter Tania has made an indelible mark on the contemporary music scene, having co penned Tina Arena’s recent album, as well has contributing to hit records for the Veronica’s, Sheppard, and Taylor Dayne. 2023 saw Tania release her solo EP ‘The Beauty’s in the Broken’ to critical and audience acclaim, the first hypnotic single ‘Harder Now’ taking out a US song writing award. 

As the original artists and writers, Eric and Tania will bring you their iconic songs you love and the fascinating stories behind them. Sprinkled in will be more recent creations they cooked up together from dark basements in their near North Pole home of Stockholm.
