Let Freedom Ring With Dorothy

Hotter than July. Yes, that is the title of legend Stevie Wonder’s iconic 19th studio album but it is also an accurate descriptor for the second leg of rock and roll powerhouse Dorothy’s Freedom Tour.

28 Days In The Valley By Dorothy

Dorothy | 28 Days In The Valley | Rating: 8.5/11 | I’m just going to go there and say that Dorothy Martin isn’t in Kansas anymore: that is, if Kansas were a hell-raising, whiskey throated, fist clenched, thrash till the wheels come off state of mind.

Despite questionable as hell cell service from AT&T, the heart and soul of Dorothy Martin – the band’s front woman – transmits loud and clear, bursting with kinetic energy. Dorothy Martin is a woman on a mission: To build a musical bridge, strut across that bridge in […]
