Dorothy Lane is a Rock n Roll band from Martinez CA. When brother-in-laws Nick and Lorin first met they realized they loved playing music with each other and could be found at any family party playing guitar or piano and singing. In early 2015 when they both found themselves without a band to play in they made the decision to form a band together. Neil, the drummer, heard from a friend who saw a post on facebook that the band was looking for a drummer. He contacted Lorin and after playing together it was a perfect match. A family friend, Nate, was the first bassist in the band but moved out of the country, Neil eventually brought his long time friend Greg on to play bass.
In the spring of 2017 Lorin packed up and moved to Portland OR. The band agreed to call it quits and look back fondly on the times they had. Later that same year Lorin decided to make the move back to Martinez CA. When Nick heard Lorin was coming back he instantly wanted to get the band back together.
Recording had already been started on the Cut & Dry EP and once the band was back together recording resumed instantly.
Nick and Lorin’s other brother-in-law, Tony, was brought on to play bass for the band. Tony, who had never played bass or even played in a band, had been learning to play guitar and would always hang out with Nick and Lorin during those family get togethers. Tony had about 2 months to learn the songs for their first show together and nailed it.
The band released their debut album "My Old Friend" in January of 2019. The album is available wherever you listen to music.
