Standing there in her full rock regalia, messy hair, leather boots, and that glimmer of confidence in her eyes, Dorothy Martin, singer/songwriter and namesake of the Los Angeles rock band Dorothy, takes the microphone in superstar producer Linda Perry's studio and goes into full rock star mode. She was on fire. She thought she nailed it. Not quite.
Coming off an album with as much critical acclaim and fan love as ROCKISDEAD — which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart, No. 5 on Top Hard Rock Albums, and featured two songs ("Raise Hell" and "Dark Nights") in the Top 40 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart — can be intimidating for most bands going into their sophomore record. Critics compared Martin to some of the greatest female artists of our time, such as Amy Winehouse, Patti Smith, and Grace Slick, even calling her "a revved up Adele teetering on the brink of chaos."
The praise was equal for the band as Rolling Stone magazine named Dorothy one of the best 50 Best New Artists, while Billboard likened the group's "Wicked Ones," which was featured in Levi's and Gatorade spots, to a blend of Black Sabbath and the White Stripes, and Vice's Noisey dubbed "After Midnight," which featured actress/model Suki Waterhouse in the music video, "the perfect modern rock concoction."
Those kind of accolades are enough to make any young band shake in their boots. But, not Dorothy.
"I had no fear coming into this record," Martin proudly states. "We were in capable hands and I finally felt empowered to be even more of a songwriter than I was before. I finally learned to trust my intuition and my heart, and to get out of my head. You know, the main message of this album is to not live in fear; it's to transform everything in your life to be on the frequency of love, which is so powerful and all healing. That's what this record is all about."
