With a dangerous lack of contemporary female rock icons, we're here for Dorothy to take the next step.
Led by front woman Dorothy Martin, the eponymous band is doing its part to deliver a welcome jolt to rock and roll with a soul-fueled take on West Coast roots rock.
Dorothy's sophomore album, 28 Days in the Valley, is a blissful trip through the desert. Powered by Martin's undeniable roadhouse glam, the record weaves through rock's many facets. There's the contemporary chorus of "Flawless" and the indulgent psychedelia of "Who Do You Love" and "Black Tar & Nicotine." Dorothy embraces folk on "Mountain" and nods to soul on "Freedom."
To Q104.3 New York's Out of the Box with Jonathan Clarke Martin credits Dolly Parton and her father's record collection with sparking her love in music. She says her dad had everything from Led Zeppelin and Creedence Clearwater Revival to Peter, Paul & Mary and Simon & Garfunkel.
“It was great. It was everything," Martin says. "It was challenging, it was emotional, it was spiritual, it was beautiful. It was growth as an artist. She was nominated for producer of the year at the GRAMMYs this year, so that’s amazing. It was awesome working with her."
