After DIY touring the United States for a several years, doc took a year off to write a song a week and formed the sound that led to theyself: Americana roots woven with stompin’ grooves, indie pop hooks, and soulful blues.
In 2017 the project was nominated for ‘Best New Band’ by City Pages.
Their debut EP Wolf Tower was tracked one night on an 8-track tape recorder in a hotel room using a pair of headphones as a makeshift microphone. In 2018 it was put at #7 on the list of ‘MN Records of the Year’ by KBEK FM, and 2019 KNO it’s visual companion piece was also featured by Melodic Noise as a 2019 EP of the Year.
Most recently doc was listed as an artist to watch in 2020 by Twin Cities Pride Magazine
