About

Hi, we are The Blue Dolphins!

We are Victoria Scott and Alfonso Rodenas. A Brit and a Spaniard who fatefully met at The Cat Club on Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles. We started making music together in 2010. But officially became The Blue Dolphins in 2012 when we released our first album ‘My Favorite Word is Today’. We played in Los Angeles, Spain and the UK to promote it. 

In 2013 we put a group of eclectic songs together for the EP. Containing a live favorite,  ‘Why Don’t You Try?’ 

In 2015 we released an EP, ‘Walking in the Sun’ followed by our most ambitious album yet, ‘Come On!’. With this fully produced album of fifteen songs, we charted on US College Radio, the World Indie Radio Alliance as well as being played by DJ Sanitago Alcanda on acclaimed station, Radio Tres in Spain.  We did Radio, Blog and TV interviews in Spain, California and Mexico.

We received rave reviews. We started playing bigger shows, 500 seaters in California and Spain and excitedly we were given the opportunity to promote and play in Mexico. We’ve started to make new fans and friends all over the world who enjoy our music and our irreverent spirit!

We couldn’t have taken this journey without friends and music fans like you! For those of you who know us already, thank you for taking part in the journey thus far! Creating music, playing live and connecting with music lovers is the magic for us- we are SO grateful!! Nor would any of this be possible without our community of creative friends in Los Angeles who have helped us create beautiful photographs and music video’s. 

We are inviting you to be a part of our fourth musical release. WE really hope you will take part in this team effort!

Our goal is to raise $6000 in a month to make this album a reality.  The $6000 will help us to cover some of the costs of the album. This includes hiring some studio musicians, paying for studio time as well as manufacturing CD’s and t-shirts and making a video.  Luckily with Alfonso on board we don’t need to hire a tracking or mixing engineer!

In return for your backing we have some GREAT rewards for you. Including CD’s, downloads & live performances. 

This album has a new fresh feeling to it and is a reflection of our experiences as a band over the last three years. We are really excited to share these songs with you.

Risks and challenges

Our deadline to complete the album is March 2019.
We are already well into the album process, including choosing the songs we will produce, working on song demo's. We are hard working and know come hell or high-water we can hit that deadline! We plan to stay on target with a production schedule and recording goals.
