Music like Dorothy




Dorothy is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2014. The band consists of vocalist Dorothy Martin, drummer Jason Ganberg, guitarists Devon Pangle and Eli Wulfmeier, and bassist Eliot Lorango. They released their first project, a self-titled EP, in 2014. Rolling Stone deemed them "a [band] you need to know," and named them #14 on their 50 Best New Artists of 2014 list.

In early 2013, Dorothy Martin was introduced to producer and guitarist Mark Jackson and his production partner Ian Scott by her cousin Sam Wofford, who was playing guitar at the time for Jackson's band, The Remedy. "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,'" said guitarist Mark Jackson in a November 2014 interview with Rolling Stone. "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." Martin joked, "Basically, we want to make songs that we think Beavis and Butthead would like." Jackson and Scott called on their friend Gregg Cash to play bass.
