Dorado is a country/Americana band of five members from five different states, but their love for music brought them together when they discovered one another in Nashville, TN.
The band has been playing live music together, writing, and creating a unique sound since they met in 2013. They have found a musical style that The Eagles' Timothy B. Schmit describes as "unpredictably beautiful." One Direction's Liam Payne said, "It's a country vocal band that can really play, sing, and write." After hearing the band for the first time, Thomas Rhett said, "This stuff is real."
The four powerful, yet distinguishable, lead singers can weave in and out of melodies and four-part harmonies with ease, while performing with exceptional craftsmanship on each of their instruments.
The name of the band came after months of soul-searching and creating the music that truly represented what they wanted to share with the world. "Dorado" comes from the name of a constellation in the southern sky, which is made up of 5 stars; the same number of guys in the band.
Dorado has played in venues across North America, sharing the stage with artists including Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Joe Nichols, Hunter Hayes, Toby Keith, Thomas Rhett, and Lee Brice to name a few. The guys also made their first international appearance in the United Kingdom where they performed live during London Fashion Week in September 2016. After spending the last few years honing their craft, the band is in the final stages of completing their debut album for a 2017 release.
Dorado consists of five members - Travis Fincher (Houston, TX), Jimmy James Hunter (Sacramento, CA), Forest Miller (Nashville, TN), Landon Parker (Yadkinville, NC), and Creigh Riepe (Charlotte Court House, VA).
