Dorja are LA's newest hard rock sensation about to explode onto the scene. With a diverse and vast range of musical influences, their unique style is a nod to 70's & 80's classic rock bands such as Led Zeppelin and Guns N Roses, whilst fusing with the modern sounds of current garage rock bands such as Royal Blood. With their powerful, guitar-driven hooks and heavy drums, teamed with a vocal of raw energy to challenge Janis Joplin, Dorja have created one of the most exciting new bands today.
Dorja are an aggregate of young, yet experienced musicians from all over the world. The five members from England, Belgium and Kazakhstan met together for the first time in May 2016 in Los Angeles after months of writing collaboratively in online sessions. They recorded their debut demo track with Erich Gobel (Black Sabbath, John Mayer, Ray Charles) at West Triad Studios in California, created by Mark Schulman (Pink).
Between the members they have performed in 9 different O2 venues, toured throughout Europe, played major festivals and recorded in studios such as Livingston Studios, Real World Studios, West Triad Studios and have appeared in publications such as Total Guitar, Guitar World, Modern Drummer Magazine, Bass Guitar Magazine and The Sun. They have studied under industry professionals in the UK & USA learning from the likes of Jamie Humphries, Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp, Smashing Pumpkins, Chickenfoot), John Wheatcroft, Mark Schulman, Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene) and many more.
The transatlantic girls bond musically and the key to their sound is not only their love of music but also their complete creative freedom. Their debut album is eagerly awaited for release in early 2017 followed by a series of live dates.
