Supporting Acts: guest Junior Doctor
Attending a prestigious, yet undisclosed, med-school in 2007, Junior Doctor began at a slow burn. With a few member changes, lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Mark Hartman, enlisted the creative energy of classmates Jarrod Kearney (drums) and Richard Peidro (bass). When the time came to prepare their next move, they were ready. The three boys left med-school and used their tuition money to purchase musical equipment and released the Take The Pain EP with notable producer Matt Goldman (Cartel, Underoath, Anberlin). Now that the slow burn has transformed into a healthy blaze, and with the help of incredibly dedicated fans, it's spreading toward your hometown faster and faster every day. Junior Doctor has become the Space Coast's flagship power-pop quartet with the members making Cocoa Beach their home base. With their roaring guitar lines, pounding rhythmic sequences and energetic live shows it's no wonder the band is gathering state wide momentum. The "What I Do" music video has had over 50,000 views on YouTube and 101.1 WJRR in Orlando has played the single in rotation on its native noise program. The word is spreading far past Florida as the band has had over a million plays on their MySpace page The band was anxious to get back into the studio after writing 25 new songs this past year. To ring in the New Year, Junior Doctor has released their first full length album "Clumsy Words and Bad Pickup Lines." The band narrowed down the songs and they feel like they are growing as writers and musicians. At the end of the recording process the band had the opportunity to write and record with the all star production team of Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (All Time Low, Mayday Parade, Go Radio). It went so well that they decided to pushed back the release date and they had Zack and Kenneth mix the whole record. Recently Terrance Donnelly ("Teepes") has joined as lead guitarist and backup vocals. He has added another dimension to the band with his musical training and his harmony singing compliments Mark's lead vocal styles. How it is that Junior Doctor strikes an almost perfect balance between hook-laden pop and rock is unclear. How Mark's songs seem to resonate with so many people is a grand mystery as well. There is however, one thing that is certain.
