Angela is the lead singer and guitarist of The Dollheads. She is 15 years old and has played guitar for almost six years. She started writing songs in 6th grade, drawing inspiration from artists such as Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters. They have heavily influenced her journey as a guitarist and now influence her writing.
Samantha,14 years old, is the bassist and has played bass for four years. She took guitar lessons for a year but later discovered that her passion was bass. Samantha’s musical inspirations are Mike Dirnt, Flea, and her music teacher, Ted Sablay.
Austin, 12 years old, is the drummer of The Dollheads. He started playing drums at six and started his journey by watching videos online and playing drums with his family. His inspirations include Taylor Hawkins, Tre Cool, Chad Smith, and his music mentor Mark Goodin.
The band's first gigs were mainly for school events at their elementary and middle schools. They started covering songs written by their collective musical inspirations, such as Green Day, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Ramones, before mixing their original music at festivals and other events.
Earlier this year, the band released three original songs that are now streaming on all music platforms. They are in the process of putting together their first album, which will be released this fall.
