Doc Moccasin / Bio

In 2010 Code Cochran, Michael (The sexiest man alive) Newsome, and Cody “Greaser” Fields got together and started jamming on cover tunes.
The covers included Johnny Cash, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, and Waylan Jennings. They later composed an all original song named Bound for Nowhere.
It was this musical composition that was the driving force to what is now Doc Moccasin.
After Greaser left the band they had found out that an old friend was a free agent in the music scene.
Kevin Johns, a bass player, came out to jam with Cochran and Newsome.
After showing a positive attitude and performing with a unique style, Newsome and Cochran felt that Kevin was a mainstay for Doc Moccasin.
Soon after Greaser joined the band for a second time along with the addition of a third guitar player named Jacob Rosco Smith.

Doc Moccasin was now a complete powerhouse.
It was after this event that Doc Moccasin began playing shows and writing all new original material.
However, tragedy befell the band when Greaser left the band for a second time.
This was the catalyst to Cochran becoming the official Lead singer/guitarist.

In 2011 Cochran suffered injury in an auto accident. Things looked very bleak for Doc Moccasin; with no front man what were they to do?

Cochran made a full recovery and Doc Moc began work on new original material and continuing the original pursuit; to revolutionize southern/arena rock.
Up until 2012 Doc Moccasin had hit a career plateau.
Gig wise they were bound for nowhere, and things began to decline with creative differences between Doc Moc and Jacob.

James “Izzy Treelow” Ternullo joined the band in place of Greaser and things began to change for the better.
Adding a new contemporary feel to the music, Doc Moccasin began to evolve into something the likes of which have not been seen.
After 5 months of being in the band, Treelow had engineered the Doc Moccasin demo, as well as, helping Doc Moc evolve into a new creation that is now labeled Arena/Southern Rock.

As Doc Moccasin enters 2013 they plan to get busy, stay busy, and reinvent music. They plan on playing at bigger venues, and touring Florida.
