The Dollyrots

The Dollyrots began their thrill-packed journey when band founders Kelly Ogden and Luis Cabezas met in middle school, playing music together for the first time when she asked him to teach her guitar. After graduating with degrees the twosome relocated from Florida to Los Angeles in 2001 and began playing shows and creating a sound that combines the energy of punk rock with the bubblegum hooks of pop. They have since built an incredible and loyal audience and become true punk stalwarts through tireless touring and recording.

The Dollyrots self-recorded and released their first EP, Feed Me Pet Me in 2003 and were chosen by Hewlett Packard to be part of their Share Your Story Campaign - which lead to a chance meeting with producer John Fields. The unsuspecting band went into the studio to record for the HP campaign and knocked it out in one take with Fields behind the board. Since the studio was rented for the day Fields suggested they record a few more songs, and before the sun went down their debut album Eat My Heart Out was finished. Initially self-released, the record gained traction on Los Angeles radio and was picked up by Panic Button, an imprint of the influential Lookout Records (Green Day, The Donnas, Rancid) label.

Ogden also recently launched a duets side project with Jaret Reddick of Bowling For Soup called Jaret and Kelly, which yielded the theme song for ABC’s Schooled. She has also taken over duties as the weekday morning DJ on Sirius XM’s Channel 21 The Underground Garage.

Through it all, The Dollyrots recording and touring has raged on and the band continues to bring their explosive live show across the globe. Their distinctive brand of punk-pop has landed them in commercials and television shows while their sunny, hooky songs and sweaty hugs have won them a devoted fan base. Along with raising a family, the duo plan to continue to keep the punk-pop flame alive. Their next 7-inch vinyl single “Make Me Hot” is set for release in March 2020.
