Dolores  was an Irish musician, singer and songwriter. She led the rock band The Cranberries and
was found dead this day. Another amazing artist lost and only at 46 years old. Got into The Cranberries when I was in high school with their album "Everybody else is doing it, so why can't we?". Good bye Dolores, RIP Zombie.. "Although widely associated with alternative rock, the band's sound also incorporates indie pop, post-punk, Irish folk, and pop rock elements."

Dolores Mary Eileen O'Riordan (6 September 1971 – 15 January 2018) was an Irish musician, singer and songwriter. She led the rock band The Cranberries from 1990 until their break-up in 2003; they reunited in 2009.




 The Cranberries are an Irish rock band formed in Limerick in 1989 by lead singer Niall Quinn, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan, and drummer Fergal Lawler. Quinn was replaced as lead singer by Dolores O'Riordan in 1990. On 15 January 2018, lead singer Dolores O'Riordan was found dead in a London hotel room. She had recently arrived in London for a recording session.

The Cranberries rose to international fame in the 1990s with their debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, which became a commercial success. The Cranberries have sold over 40 million records worldwide. The band achieved four top 20 albums on the Billboard 200 chart (Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?; No Need to Argue, To the Faithful Departed and Bury the Hatchet)  and eight top 20 singles on the Modern Rock Tracks chart ("Linger", "Dreams", "Zombie", "Ode to My Family", "Ridiculous Thoughts", "Salvation", "Free to Decide", and "Promises").


O'Riordan was known for her lilting mezzo-soprano voice, her emphasised use of yodelling, and her strong Limerick accent. She appeared as a judge on RTÉ's The Voice of Ireland during the 2013–14 season. In April 2014, O'Riordan joined and began recording new material with the trio D.A.R.K.

















The President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, was one of the first to pay tribute. Other early tributes came in from across the music world, including Dave Davies (of the Kinks), Hozier, and Kodaline. The Taoiseach of Ireland, Leo Varadkar, also paid tribute to O'Riordan. Polish President Andrzej Duda paid tribute as well. Also, as a tribute, the Avett Brothers covered The Cranberries song "Linger". On 18 January, the heavy metal band Bad Wolves released a cover of "Zombie" (originally by The Cranberries), which charted on multiple Billboard charts O'Riordan was supposed to have performed the song with the band, but died before recording it. On 28 January, a children's choir from New York City sang The Cranberries song "Dreams" in O'Riordan's memory.



Their music has been likened to singers such as Sinéad O'Connor and Siouxsie and the Banshees. O'Riordan stated her singing style incorporating yodelling was inspired by her father who used to sing "The Lonesome Cattle Call": "I just kept with my father all the time, just copying him and eventually I learned how to do it. Then over the years there were artists like Sinéad O’Connor and Siouxsie from Siouxsie and the Banshees and even Peter Harvey was doing it. It was something that you could work into The Cranberries’ format because a lot of that was used in religious Irish music."
 


On 7 March 2018, the band announced they were releasing a special 25th anniversary newly remastered anniversary edition of the debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We, with previously unreleased material as well as other bonus material from the time of the album. However, with O'Riordan's death it was delayed until late 2018. The band also decided to complete their new album underway at the time O'Riordan died, for which she had already recorded the vocals.
