Hello Cupid!! Coming Soon!
Mix one-part Joy, and one-part pain; add soul – and taste the sound of Allegra Dolores. These Chicago-born biological sisters are a multi-talented force of nature. Dolores is the emcee with overtones of sarcastic humor, while Allegra carries an edgy rocker vibe with an element of negro spiritual. And just when you think you’ve got them figured – out comes the harmony in their singing voices.
Molded out of influences that range from Hip Hop to Punk Rock, with soulfully beautiful harmonies, these ladies have been likened to the Jones Girls. On a performance level, they are a rising sleeper with polished stage presence and vocal commands thanks to paying dues on stage together or separately, with the likes of dead prez, Omar, Siji, Nadira Shakoor and Rahbi, among others.
Allegra Dolores is also an emcee favorite among the indie hip hop community in Chicago, while capitalizing on out-of-the-box opportunities like Dolores’ acting work which can been seen in the opening credits to HBO’s True Blood.
Their song The Music-OK was recently featured on the soundtrack to the Dennis Dortch’ indie film, A Good Day To Be Black & Sexy. Their latest offering to the rising world of independent black web series is the song “Chemistry”, theme song to Dortch’s web series, RoomieLoverFriends, produced by The Awkward Black Girl, herself, Issa Rae.
They have performed across the country and shared the stage with an array of well known acts, but they pride themselves in the collaboration with the members of their band Room 11. With Room 11, the ladies marry harmony and grooves to a funk, rock, soul, hip hop bluesy mixture of sounds provided by bandmates, Big Ced, Frankie Blaze and Marty Murphy.
