50 is Dorothy Wallace's first release of new music as an artist in 15 years. With a title inspired by Adele, this 5 song EP celebrates the reflection, regret, wisdom and peace of mind that come with being a woman of a certain age.
Dorothy Wallace started performing in the late 80s. Her first release "G Road" was named for the road in Brentwood, Long Island, which was the entrance to a large psychiatric hospital. Appropriately titled, the songs are a schizophrenic mix of heavy metal, country, blues, folk and punk.
In 2000 she released the left leaning Contemporary Christian album "Hand of God" in memory of her mother who died of ovarian cancer. Rather than fire and brimstone, the songs are inspired by the teachings of Christ of nonjudgement, forgiveness, humility and the golden rule.
Dorothy was included in CD Baby's 9/11 fundraiser "The World Will Remember" which raised money for The Red Cross and local NY firefighters.
Dorothy Wallace has been a finalist in the Song of the Year Contest 2010 & 2014, and Song Door 2014.
Her animated musical web series Meet The LadyBugs won Best Musical Scene at the Miami WebFest 2014, Oustanding Series in Animation at LAWebFest 2014 and Best Screenplay at The Broad Humor Film Festival in 2012.
in 2015, Meet The LadyBugs is an official selection at London's Raindance WebFest, L.A.'s Broad Humor Film Festival, Miami WebFest , Roma WebFest, LAWebFest and Korean WebFest .
