Dory Previn Biography

Dory Previn (born Langan and changed it to Langdon) was an American lyricist, singer-songwriter and poet. During the late 1950s and 1960s she was a lyricist on songs intended for motion pictures and, with her then husband, Andre Previn, received several Academy Award nominations.


In the 1970s Dory gained a significant following with her dark and honest view of life. She drew heavily on a troubled childhood, difficulties in her marriage and mental ill health.


She made few stage appearances, after the albums of the 1970s, but her writing continued with two Autobiographies.


She died 14 February 2012, aged 86.
