Tight arrangements and an impeccable aptitude for simple, punchy pop hooks defined Doc Robinson’s immediate rise, building a committed fanbase and a robust catalog of “backyard BBQ breakup music” in a short amount of time.
In 2016, Nick D’Andrea and Jon Elliott emptied their backpack full of soulful influences and stitched the band together as a melding of their two favorite artists (Smokey Robinson + Dr. Dog), enlisting a rotation of Columbus Ohio’s finest R&B players as All-Star bedrock.
After four records in two years, a series of tours supporting CAAMP, The Brook & The Bluff, and Neal Francis, and their song “Break My Fall” landing placement and garnering worldwide attention on the Netflix series “Bojack Horseman”, Doc Robinson shifts into a new era for the young, accomplished band after D’Andrea’s amicable exit to pursue his talents off the road..
As Elliott now dons the sole captain’s hat, the loss of D’Andrea is softened by the treasure trove of feel-good hits left in the pair’s wake. With a recent string of sold out hometown shows under their belt, Doc Robinson is hitting the road accompanied by releases of new music and fresh perspectives. In the best of ways, Doc Robinson begins 2022 as if they are just getting started.
