...Dorothy has a well-honed stage charm and an unsinkable ego when
she gets on stage, opening up her life through her songs. In one about
her parents’ death, she offers “It was easy to clear out that old
house/Not so easy to clear out my mind.” by Alex V. Cook, Country
Roads Magazine, August 2009.
Released in summer of 2012, Legacy explores Dorothy's personal journey, with emphasis on those she's known
and loved who have helped shape her unique perspectives. Six of these tunes (On Granny's Farm, Time, Healing,
Bird Poop, I Carry, and Lemonade Queen) directly reflect her Christian faith-base. She sings of challenges: as
a young adult after college; as a parent to an addicted child; as a daughter who faces the death of her parents; and her
need to create her own legacy after her breast cancer ordeal.
Legacy is beautifully produced and orchestrated by Daniel Lee of Boonelight Productions, with a special appearance on two tunes (Can't Sing the Blues and Legacy) by Dave Hinson on bass and viola. Dorothy will sweep you into her world
of challenge and hope and survival with every tune.
