Doll Patrol Creative Page

“Music is what feelings sound like.” says, singer/songwriter, Joanna Theresa Heart, the vocal force behind Doll Patrol, project she began in Philadelphia and carried to Los Angeles in 2005. The saga of Doll Patrol began in late 2007 when they rocked their first show at the five-band indie showcase “Plow” in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District. Categorized in many different genres, most recently “Dark Pop”, Doll Patrol’s unique sound gained an impressive following that continues to grow. Doll Patrol came together when lead vocalist Joanna Heart (a Philly native with a love for the West Coast), and lead guitarist Gilbert Garcia (an amazing player with amazing hair) joined forces. They quickly realized that combined, their duo was a creative landmine. They spent countless sessions filling stacks of notebooks with kick ass melodies that should satisfy fans long into their Social Security years. With the addition of Blue Dickinson on bass and Alfredo Vega on drums, the musical tour de force that is Doll Patrol was complete. Their first EP “Self Tidaled Wave” was released in December of 2009. It was recorded at Swinghouse Studios in Hollywood, CA and was produced by Warren Huart who has worked with such artists as Better Than Ezra, The Fray, Korn and Hot Hot Heat. Doll Patrol continues to rock swanky bars, clubs and lounges throughout the Los Angeles area. Look for them as they frequent the Bordello in downtown.
