Introducing Dorothy Milone
Here at DSHH, we’re honored to introduce to you the one and only girl group, Dorothy Milone. The D.C bound group shows their passion by incorporating men and women issues in their songs with a combination of sweet tunes (of course!) From their unique name to their brand new video game these girls are doing it all, and you can find more information about the group in the interview below.
What’s the significance of your name?
Our name, Dorothy Milone, stems from the character Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. We see ourselves as young adventurers traveling through the bizarre music industry, which is somewhat like the land of Oz. The surname, Milone, represents our one in a million odds of reaching the very top of the music game…but we’re going to do it!
What city do you hail from?
We hail from the D.C. metropolitan area.
How are you going to approach the game as an artist?
We are approaching the game differently than most other female artists because although we are primarily a music group, we aim to serve our community as more of an organization rather than a mere group of attractive girls that can only serve social media as eye candy. Dorothy Milone brings awareness to societal issues that young men and women face, and it uses its platform as a means to combat such issues. Dorothy Milone wants to instill a positive message in young women so they understand that they too can be leaders. The time of following behind the masses and succumbing to societal labels has long passed. We also love trying new things and connecting with all ages. We recently launched a new game called “Dorothy Dash” and it’s available in the App Store and on Google Play. You pick your favorite member and race through the paparazzi and other obstacles to get to the main stage. Everybody loves it!
Who are some of the artists and producers you’ve worked with for your new music?
Some notable individuals we have worked with include Chris Bivins (Entertainer and producer at BET), Tokyo Vanity (Love & Hip Hop Atlanta), and Durdi Doug (Notable Rapper from Baltimore).
Whom would you say are your greatest influences in music today?
Our greatest influences in music today include SZA, Ella Mai, and Normani.
What are you bringing new to the game for the culture?
We are bringing the ladies’ soft and sweet side back to the music game. Lately, we’ve noticed that women in music are going out of their way to seem tough. We don’t aspire to be like the fellas in the industry, and instead, we embrace our womanhood.
Explain your new single and what’s your current project?
We took a little inspiration from the Powerpuff Girls with our new single “Sugar & Spice”. Sugar, spice, and everything nice were the necessary ingredients to create the perfect girls, and that’s exactly who we are as Dorothy Milone.
So with the climate of today’s artists using ghostwriters, would you use any, and have you done any, for any artists out there now?
We haven’t relied on any ghostwriters yet, but we wouldn’t be opposed to it. Some people are naturally gifted at writing song lyrics, but they may not have the audacity to ever perform on stage. There is nothing wrong with multiple people working together to deliver an awesome project as long as everyone involved is accredited.
