Los Angeles rock outfit Dorothy returned to Columbus' Rock on the Range, this time with a complete record of their own behind them. The band has a very heavy blues sound with riffs that compare to the mighty Black Sabbath.
While the musicianship is spot on and a refreshing throwback to rock's roots, it is lead singer Dorothy Martin that captivates the crowd. Combining beauty, stage presence, and a voice for the ages, this is far and away the most underrated act to play this weekend's festival. She was absolutely correct in stating that "we need more girls in rock," because if even half of them would bring to the genre what her talent does, rock will never die. Their set was highlighted by a very heartfelt and sincere nod to Chris Cornell and a haunting rendition of "I Put a Spell On You" that gave chills.
