The Doctors and The Lawyers
The Doctors and The Lawyers is an alternative/jam/rock band founded in early September of 2011 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The group consists of five members: Evan Brooks, Chris Wilhelm, Taylor Atkinson, Zach Pline and Jordan Kumler. The band formed through relationships made by random freshman dorm placement at the University of Alabama, and it developed because of each member’s collective musical vision. From The Black Keys to Papadosio, Moon Taxi to Led Zeppelin, the musical influences of the group continue to expand and evolve just as fluidly as the sound of the group’s original material.
Their first self-produced EP was recorded at Bates Brothers Recording Studio in Birmingham, Alabama and was released in the Spring of 2013. That same year, however, the group self-produced another EP at the Brown Owl Studios in Nashville, Tennessee and is individually releasing the songs this Spring.
With the added surprises improvisational music breaks throughout their shows, The Doctors and The Lawyers never puts on the same performance twice. The group engages its audience by both recognizing and appreciating the diversity of musical preferences that can be present in large crowds. Though the band got its name because the members are currently studying to become doctors, lawyers, and the like, their true passion lies in the collaboration and creation of a truly unique music experience.
