Listening to The Dorothy Heralds is like sipping your favorite mixed drink. Part 'chick' rock, part electronica, a dash of haunting progressive rock and a twist of R&B add to the flavor of this Madison, WI based concoction. Constructed in October 2001, their prog-pop appeal may lie in their 'can't quite put a finger on it sound.' Combine the folk sensibility and passionate melodies of lead singer, Katy Rykken, with the melodic pounce of catlike keyboardist, Kevin Lozada, the hypnotic strut of bassist Gary Chin, the chromatic ambience of Matt Nelson's guitar, and the rhythmic rooting of drummer, Rick Horton, The Dorothy Heralds are able to weave from one musical genre to the next. Each with a hand in the writing process, The Dorothy Heralds, recently released their first full length studio Album, Projections. With journal-like lyrics baring personal triumphs and pangs, some songs delve deep without being over melodramatic. Others take the less serious route, maintaining the groups 'take it as it comes' attitude.
