[PREMIERE] Dr. Doctor – Turbulence
Written by: Grant Owens
Dr. Doctor has been years in the making for LA based songwriter Ralph Torrefranca. Originally born from heartache, Dr. Doctor has evolved into a solo project that draws chorus-laden and lush guitar melodies and blends this with Torrefranca’s poetic style of storytelling to create sounds unique to the indie & pop genres.
“Turbulence” marks the first full fledged release from Dr. Doctor, also joined in the studio and in the live setting by Zack Greenwald, Drew Bruchs, Adam Newmark and Joe Liptock.
Torrefranca’s approach to producing was simple: embrace the live sound. This was done beautifully with co-producers Chris Lynch and Adam Rasmussen from the band Gardens & Villa (Secretly Canadian), embracing techniques that not only shines a light on Torrefranca’s chorus-heavy guitars but also embraces the talented rhythm section of Liptock and Bruchs. Rounded out by the mixing of engineer Mike Post (Local Natives, Robert Schwartzman), “Turbulence” embraces modern pop songwriting with an almost DIY spirit.
