Emerging Artist

Dorothy (#6) is up a whopping 32 spots on this week’s chart following the release of their debut album, ROCKISDEAD. The band fired things up in Los Angeles circa 2013, got noticed with their song After Midnight in 2014, and then released a self-titled EP. The quartet hit all the right LA buttons along the way by filming at Swinghouse Studios, playing School Night, holding a residency at the Bootleg Theater, and getting love from LA Weekly.

Dorothy scored a great sponsorship with Skullcandy and garnered favorable press from Hype Machine, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Complex and others, eventually landing on the Roc Nation roster. Placements with Levi’s, Gatorade, and WWE were to follow as were some interesting local fans like Tom Morello and Miguel…Dorothy even toured as opener for the latter in an interesting pairing.

The group is currently playing U.S. clubs with fellow Emerging Artists The Struts and will appear at the Made in America festival in Philly on Labor Day weekend. Their single, Raise Hell, is currently flirting with an Active Rock radio chart debut.
