Dot Allison (born Dorothy Elliot Allison, 17 August 1969, Edinburgh) is a Scottish singer and songwriter who has made significant inroads in electronic music circles, most notably as a result of her tenure fronting the band One Dove in the early 1990s.

In addition to solo ventures, Allison's career has concentrated on collaborative efforts, and has seen her work beside the likes of Death in Vegas, Hal David, Arab Strap, Scottish dance duo Slam, Kevin Shields, Pete Doherty / Babyshambles, Gary Mounfield, and Massive Attack.

Allison released her debut album, Afterglow, in 1999 to generally positive reviews. A song-oriented pop outing, it was followed by the electro and house music inspired We Are Science in 2002. In 2007, she released the folk and psychedelica influenced Exaltation of Larks. Allison's touring group includes members of The Fall, Two Lone Swordsmen, Tindersticks, Death in Vegas, Massive Attack, and Tokyo Windbag. Stylistically, her music has been described as "trip-pop," and owes a great deal to British electronic music of the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Allison released Room Seven And A Half, in September 2009. It features a guest appearance by Pete Doherty on the songs "I Wanna Break Your Heart" and "Portrait Of The Sun", which he co-wrote. Paul Weller also appears on "Love's Got Me Crazy".

She contributed vocals to the track "Without Discord" on the soundtrack to the Channel 4 series Henry 8th: The Mind of a Tyrant, written by Philip Sheppard. Additionally, Allison has recorded the score to a new horror genre film entitled Triangle. A collection of past collaborations and rarities is also in the works.

Allison was recently the vocal soloist in the film Black Death starring Sean Bean, released in May 2010.

Part of Allison's recording of "Message Personnel", a single taken from the Afterglow album, was used in the fourth episode of the sixth series of the sitcom Ideal.
