Dorothy, California’s sensational hard rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!
The band’s beginnings took place in Los Angeles in 2013 when vocalist Dorothy Martin met music producer and guitarist Mark Jackson along with his production partner Ian Scott. She had some ideas for songs and impressed both Mark and Ian with her voice. Mark said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, “When we heard Dorothy's voice, we were like, 'Holy shit — if we put this behind some serious old-school metal riffs, we'll have something big,' "It sounded so cool when we did it, just having that fat bottom of old-school hip-hop records with metal guitars playing really simple riffs. We're taking this back to AC/DC or Sabbath —just one guitar, one bass, and drums and bad ass vocals.” They recruited bassist Gregg Cash and drummer Zac Morris to complete the line up and released their debut single (After Midnight) in 2014. It started to attract a sizeable following on social media and they followed it up with their eponymous debut EP (as a digital download). It wasn’t long before they caught the attention of Roc Nation (the label founded by Jay-Z himself) and released their debut studio album (ROCKISDEAD) in 2016.
