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. When Dorothy Martin appeared on the Los Angeles music scene in 2014, she seemingly did so out of nowhere but that voice definitely comes from somewhere. […]

MUSIC ON, WORLD OFF: #SaveLucifer Edition

The devil that you know is infinitely better than the one you don’t and that’s just one reason why I was invested in the FOX fantasy drama, Lucifer, starring Tom Ellis as everyone’s favorite hedonistic club-owning desire hound, Lucifer Morningstar, recently relocated to Los Angeles (the City of Angels, of course) due to boredom with his official duties as the Angel of Hell (aka the […]
