Doctor, Doctor is a hard rock power trio playing live and recording out of the Oakland / SF area of California. Its sound is diverse, influenced mostly by prog-, art-, and arena-rock bands such as Muse, Tool, Coheed and Cambria, and Journey, with a few pop, jazz, and EDM notes also sneaking in.

The band started as a duo in early 2020, when Alex Smoligovets and Adrian Morrison picked up some old instruments and started jamming together during the pandemic. They’ve since released two original hard rock EPs – Panacea in 2021 and Second Opinion in 2023 – on all major streaming platforms. They’ve also been joined by hard hitting drummer Karl Pfeifer and played dozens of shows around the Bay Area and beyond. Look out for more of their original material, coming in 2024+!


“Second Opinion” initially requires patience but is ultimately an experience that is really worth listening to, and in the end you just wish for a little more playing time or more songs.

Closer ‘The Turtle’ kept playing in my head after a couple of spins. First thing that came to mind was the acoustic guitar play of Jimmy Page on Led Zep‘s classic Stairway To Heaven because of its bewitching resonance. And I’ll throw in another big name. Think Jethro Tull on a mellow moment.
