Dr. Failure in the studio working on White (May 28, 2019)

Born July 17, 2000, Dr. Failure is a young noise musician from Oxford, Mississippi. He's involved in several other genres, like rock and stuff, but as a soloist, he's a noise artist. He started doing noise in 2017 shortly after attending a noise show in Oxford, in late 2016, performed by SICKGRRL, which sparked his interest in not only becoming a fan of the genre, but becoming a creator as well. In late January, early February 2017, he started creating videos and tracks of single-take, improvisational guitar jams which was his "start" in the noise world. In July 2017, on his 17th birthday, he released his debut noise album The Basement Above, which was done only with generated audio on Audacity and some filter play. Between July 2017 and January 2018, he was still doing guitar jams with one "noise remix" album as an exception, Highway 666- The Devil's Noise. In January 2018, he started using a Rockville RPM109 mixer, and used no-input mixing as a method of doing noise, and this, for the most part, put an end to the days of improvisational guitar jams. Since, he's been a frequent publisher on Bandcamp.

In 2020, Dr. Failure wanted to venture to even more genres and, while joining a band called "The Mannequins" in mid-2019, the bass player wanted to join Dr. Failure in "Vitaphobics Anonymous", a Stoner Doom Metal duo. On top of the previous projects, Dr. Failure is in the process of collaborating with an anonymous artist in a Grindcore duo called "MARYSKVNT". As well, Dr. Failure wanted to dabble in folk punk as a solo artist under "$0 Life Insurance Policy".


Dr. Failure uses a Rockville RPM109 Mixer, Fender Mustang I V.2 Amplifier, Behringer Ultravoice 8500 Microphone, Boss ODB-3 Bass Overdrive Pedal, Piezo P-007 Contact Microphone, Behringer U-Phoria UM2 Preamp, Digitech DDM Death Metal Distortion Pedal, Audio2000s AMX7322UBT 6-Ch. Audio Mixer Sound Board, Gakken SX-150 Mark II Analog Synthesizer, Digital Reverb Pedal, 2018 AB Box Looper Pedal, True Bypass with 1590B, Circuit Bent/Modified Vintage Audiovox Brand Dynamic CB Microphone, CASIO WK-200 Electronic Keyboard, and a Tape Deck using various tapes.
