Thereza Bazar Biography

British-Canadian singer Thereza Bazar was born on May 23, 1957 in Toronto, Canada. Best known for being half of the pop duo Dollar, the 51 year old currently lives in Australia in an approximately $2 million home in Vaucluse, an Eastern suburb of Sydney.

Thereza Bazar started her singing career with the 1970s group Guys n’ Dolls. She met David Van Day during this time, who was also a member of the band. In 1977, Thereza and David formed their own duo, Dollar. Dollar was a success for David and Thereza through the late 80s, due in part to Thereza’s song-writing abilities.

When they formed Dollar, 17-year old Thereza Bazar and David were dating. In a recent interview, she said that she adored David and called him her first love. However, she says that his love of fame and drug addiction eventually put a wedge between them personally, and caused them to go their separate ways professionally.

In 1985, Thereza Bazar released her solo album, The Big Kiss. That same year, she recorded the theme song to the US film Gotcha! In 2000, former bandmate David Van Day convinced her to reunite, and she has been performing with him as Dollar on and off since.

Failing to recapture the fame she found with Dollar, Thereza Bazar moved to Australia in 1988. She eventually met Sydney barrister David Cowan, who she married and had two sons with. Recently divorced, she states she is “enjoying the single life,” and focuses her time on raising her two sons and teaching singing to children.

    I have the solo-LP “The Big Kiss” by Thereza Bazar, but I have only managed to buy two compilations by Dollar and one LP (Shooting Stars). I haven`t found any real discography, most discographies are over the compilations and singles. I will pay anyone (including Thereza) who can transfer any Dollar-album to cd. Please send her my message and my e-mail address.
