Dot Allison (born Dorothy Elliot Allison, 17 August 1969, Edinburgh, Scotland) 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. She is married to the film music composer Christian Henson and they live in Edinburgh.

Dot Allison, former vocalist for the sorely missed Scottish trio One Dove, makes her solo debut with this dreamy, barely lucid record. Full of songs that bathe in half-speed dub beats, Afterglow broods with downcast eyes, yearning for transcendent escapes and peaceful sanctuaries. With the able assistance of Death in Vegas's Richard Fearless, noted '60s songwriter Hal David, and even indie guitar legend Kevin Shields, Allison swoons with confidence, shuffling out song after song of bleary-eyed danceability and electronic atmospherics. Her "Colour Me" single did not disappoint, and the expectations generated by that single are fully fulfilled by Afterglow, the debut album from the angelic Dot Allison. This album finds her breaking free of One Dove's sound, beginning her free-form expression within her chosen musical genres. But she does bold new things with the techno/choir/pop hybrid on this album.
