Artist Info

Dorothy Martin’s life changed forever when she was forced to face death on her tour bus some three years ago. After her guitar technician had taken an overdose, Dorothy instinctively began praying for his survival. While he may have temporarily died, the technician was astonishingly, miraculously restored back to life. It was this moment that seemed to bring Dorothy to life too. It was this divine intervention that caused a radical and spiritual awakening in the singer, the result of which can be heard on Gifts From The Holy Ghost, Dorothy’s third studio album as front person for the pseudonymous, rock band Dorothy. 
With the combined powers of Keith Wallen, Jason Hook, Scott Stevens, Phil X, Trevor Lukather, Joel Hamiltonand the legendary ear of producer Chris Lord Alge, Gifts From The Holy Ghost is made from a musical palette which seems to encompass each of the musician’s influences, as well as many of the essential sounds of rock music’s history—from swampy blues to ‘90s alternative —in a way that makes the case for rock and roll itself. Not only is the genre alive, but it’s more invigorated than ever.
The album’s lyrics are a perfect balance of specificity and generality, so that the listener can attach their own darknesses and triumphs to the songs, while still getting a sense of Dorothy’s own. “We are all one human family.” she declares. 
With Gifts From The Holy Ghost, Dorothy identifies her purpose as an artist. She conquers darkness with light, numbness with feeling, disharmony with unity—all while delivering one of this year’s most fun rock & roll records.
The album features “Rest In Peace” which pushed Dorothy into Top 15 at Active Rock Radio charts this month, garnered over 4 Million streams worldwide and has been deemed essential listening by Loudwire, Consequence, Blabbermouth, New Noise, Metal Injection and more. Dorothy kicked off her extensive, 40 date U.S. tour in her hometown of San Diego on Monday and continues southbound this week before heading up the east coast.

“Long live rock & roll” is more than just a motto for the band deFrance. It’s a way of life and a  way of consciousness; like the summoning of ancient nobility, it’s the mantra that’s been  tattooed on the soul of singer, songwriter, guitarist, and founder, Drew deFrance.  

deFrance formed from the muddy banks of the Ouachita River in the vest pocket town of  Camden, Arkansas. Called the “hardest working band in Arkansas,” the band has racked up  more than 600 shows and thousands of fans from the proven grassroots method of endlessly  working on the road since their formation in 2015. deFrance calls Little Rock, Arkansas, home  but these road warriors carry their modern take on classic rock & roll across the world, having  performed shows at legendary venues including Montreux Jazz Festival, Whisky A Go Go, and  their hometown Verizon Arena in North Little Rock. The band’s technical prowess and  deliverance of a truly pure rock & roll sound has been recognized with support opportunities for  Foghat, Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, ZZ Top, Whiskey Myers, Robert Randolph, Shooter Jennings,  Morris Day & The Time, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Living Colour, among others. 

Please enjoy, listen loud, and stay tuned... a LOT more is soon to unfold!
