Who is Fefe Dobson and what is her net worth 2018? As a songwriter and recording artist, this pop punk and rock singer have the perfect balance of ooze and “badass” in her to make you love and hate her at the same time.
On February 28, 1985, in a small suburb of Toronto, Scarborough, Ontario, Dobson was born to a Jamaican father and a mother of diverse heritage which includes English, Aboriginal and French. At an early age, Dobson identified music as her passion and sent her recorded demos to North American record companies by the age of 11. She said of encountering racism where she was mistaken for an R&B or pop singer instead of her rock music, due to her Jamaican ancestry.
After reaching 13, she started writing her own songs but refused an offer from Jive Records. Jive Records wanted to polish her skills and turn her into R&B or pop singer but her dedication towards Rock n’ Roll made her reject the lucrative offers. Her debut album which was self titled won her two Juno award nominations but had an issue with Island Records which delayed her album Sunday Love by a few years.
Her album Joy, which she recorded with her manager’s recording company, 21 Music became a big hit and gave Dobson further fame. Island Records released her debut album in 2003 and 3,07,000 copies were sold throughout the United States as stated by Billboard. Quite impressive figure! It is also reported that her debut album was also sitting in number one position of Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart.
In her recording studio, she always had hung the pictures of her ideals. Kurt Cobain, Coldplay, Judy Garland, The Vines and Jeff Buckley are her major inspirations and her inspiration of music comes from these legends. She was also lucky enough to get the chance of performing in MTV Video Music Awards in 2009. The badass women have all the qualities to be a remarkable singer.
In 2013, Dobson got engaged to the rapper Yelawolf, but unfortunately, three years later in May, the couple broke up.
Education: Dobson initially attended Heritage Park Public School and later graduated from Wexford Collegiate Institute, where she attended and graduated as a high schooler. She had a keen interest in music since early childhood and in order to improve her singing, she took lessons at the New Conservatory of Music in Agincourt, Scarborough to earn more skill sets regarding her craft.

But consumerism found Dobson quite charming for a diverse set of neo-cultural audience and big brands decided to cash in on her by getting their products endorsed by the artist. In 2004, Fefe appeared in a Tommy Hilfiger commercial endorsing their Tommy Jeans. In the village commercial they featured Dobson’s hit song Joy; in 2011, her song“Watch Me Move” was featured in Puma’s brand new Women’s training collection.

The t-shirts feature several artists other than Dobson including Simple Plan, Alyssa Reid and Autotune. At a Panty Schmooze movement organised by Heather Ostertag, Dobson and several other artists have performed to raise enough funds and panties for distributing among various groups; Nellie’s Shelter for Women being one of them.
