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. After cutting their teeth on some covers, the guys started collaborating on their first original record, Panacea, a prog-rock-influenced EP that came out in September 2021 on all major streaming platforms.
In 2022, following a series of shows around the Bay Area, the duo started working on their next release, Second Opinion, which sees the band lean harder into the progressive elements of their sound. They were also joined by Karl Pfeifer on drums, who brings hard hits and an energy that Rob the Robot, their stage iPad, just doesn’t quite match. Check out the early-release bonus track from Second Opinion, titled The Turtle, right now – and don’t miss the rest of the EP dropping on all the streaming apps on Nov 3, 2023.
