Dorothy’s monumental new album Gifts From The Holy Ghost was born from a sense of divine urgency, it’s her most bombastic and gloriously, victorious rock and roll work yet.
Each song built on triumph—the album is a healing and remedial experience, made to unify listeners and point them towards a life full of purpose.
Today Gifts From The Holy Ghost sees its release via Roc Nation across all digital platforms and Vinyl, CD and Cassette. She’s also debuted her new video for the album’s moving album opener, “A Beautiful Life”.
Dorothy reveals, “‘A Beautiful Life’ includes my favorite lyric on the album, ‘Don’t let the demons get you down’ – The story of the song is very personal to me and touches on suicide and near-death experiences. It is, to me, the most spiritual and inspiring track on the album.”

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 Hamilton and the legendary ear of producer Chris Lord Alge, Gifts 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 Hungarian-born vocalist has always been an instinctual writer and artist. Throughout her life, she’s been asking the big questions, both in and outside her art: ‘What’s the meaning of life? Why are we here? How are we here?’ When she couldn’t find the answers to those questions, she’d numb out the empty uncertainty with drugs and alcohol. She eventually embraced sobriety and a new chapter was opened in her spiritual journey.
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.
Dorothy is currently crossing the U.S. in support of Gifts From The Holy Ghost and has announced a speciallivestream of her upcoming Chicago House of Blues show on April 30 via Veeps.
