DOROTHY is an LA-based band consisting of vocalist Dorothy, guitarist Mark Jackson, bassist Gregg Cash and drummer Zac Morris. The traditional bluesy rock vibes that come from the band's high-energy performances makes them a force to be reckoned with on the music scene and a band to watch. Rolling Stone just deemed them a new artist you need to know now and compared their stomping, hard-rock sound to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin and Black Sabbath.

"If anyone's gonna cut my tongue off, it's gonna be me," declares the irreverent lead singer of DOROTHY. With ballsy guitar riffs, bold drum patterns and whiskey-soaked vocals, DOROTHY is reviving the soulful era of rock & roll that calls for drunken late night partying and more than a few bad decisions that make for good stories. Think Kurt Cobain paired with Janis Joplin. DOROTHY sounds like how youth feels.
The Georgia Flood
The Georgia Flood
Groove-heavy and Genre-bending, The Georgia Flood's music has changed significantly over the
years. Their new album People Like Ourselves draws on indelible melodies, clever lyrics, and an
infectious energy; weaving together an EP that hits all the right notes. The Atlanta based duo, Lane Kelly
and Brooks Mason, are brothers who began playing when they were seven and nine years old. Hustling
birthday parties and family reunions the brothers changed sounds numerous times through their teens.
Drawing on their exploration of numerous genres, their songwriting channels classic guitar riffs and
modern pop sensibilities.
Self-financed the band went into Jason Hoard's Black Cat Studio early 2016 to put together the
seven songs contained within their new EP. Don't let the EP status fool you though, the band toiled over
30+ tracks to carve out their favorites, coalescing into seven songs that journey through themes of love,
good times, and tragedy. "We had a really tough time choosing between a few" explains Brooks, The
Georgia Flood's lead guitar player and singer, "We had so many songs that really brought the listener to
amazing moments".
"Whistle King", the records prominent single, encompasses much of what the record is about.
"On the surface it seems sort of nonsensical and fun but the song really describes how crazy our lifestyle
is on the road," explains Lane, who plays bass "playing in an indie band is a constant state of discovery.
Lyrically, Whistle King exemplifies a lot of the exhilaration and frustration."
Their new album now out, The Georgia Flood will be touring nationwide in 2017. With a
dynamic live set, the band intends to bring their music to ears the good old fashioned way, one bar at a
