In June 2008 Junior Doctor released the Take The Pain EP under notable producer Matt Goldman. With their roaring guitar lines, pounding rhythmic sequences and energetic live shows it's no wonder the band is gathering state wide momentum and making it look effortless.

Biography

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 30,000 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 has been anxious to get back into the studio after writing 25 new songs this past year. To ring in the New Year, Junior Doctor has recently re-entered the studio with Matt Goldman again at the helm and are finishing up a CD to be released in the fall of 2010. 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.

During the recording process in January the band brought in a new lead guitarist Yazmani Velazquez. 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.

The Doctor is in, and heart surgery never sounded so good.

Lyrics

What I Do

Written By: Junior Doctor

The beat is gonna move
Your lips are what I wanna taste and your hips
Are calling me out on the floor
Girl we can't ignore this attraction

You're all up on me when they dim the lights
And tonight this feels right
So baby let's close our eyes
As we fade into the distraction

You're pulling me inside your body
I lie to you while you lie on me
You're inside my head
While it's in you
And baby I don't mean to confuse
You but this is just what I do

The beat is gonna move
Your lips are what I wanna taste and girl your hips
Are calling me out on the floor
Girl we can't ignore this attraction

You're all up on me when they dim the lights
And tonight this feels right
So baby let's close our eyes
As we fade into the distraction

You're pulling me inside your body
I lie to you while you lie on me
You're inside my head
While it's in you
And baby I don't mean to confuse
You but this is just what I do

Consider this your warning girl
I'm sounding the alarm
Cause the truth is
I mean you no harm

Consider this your warning girl
We can get it on
But know this
As soon as I'm done I'm gone
Gone

You're pulling me inside your body
And I can't get enough
I lie to you while you lie on me
You're inside my head
While it's in you
And baby I don't mean to confuse
You but this is just what I do

Leaving

Written By: Junior Doctor

8 am he woke up alone
Stayed up all night waiting by the phone
She said she was gonna call by six o’ clock so they could hang out all night
Ten till five he was dressed and ready to go

He laid there underneath the sheets wishing he could go back to sleep
But he had to get ready to go because at twelve his plane was gonna leave
At the age of 17…

She knew he was leaving
But she didn’t care enough to
Show up or say goodbye
And now he’s leaving it’s time to fly
He was leaving
But she didn’t care enough to
Show up or say goodbye
And now he’s leaving it’s time to fly
Out of her life

His lonely flight took so long
And on that night he wrote this song

She knew he was leaving
But she didn’t care enough to
Show up or say goodbye
And now he’s leaving it’s time
She knew he was leaving
But she didn’t care enough to
Show up or say goodbye
And now he’s leaving it’s time to fly
It's time to fly
back to top
