There are two artists known as Dr. Awkward.
1) Dr. Awkward (Josh Watson) has been a Southern California recording artist since 2009. Doc was born and raised in San Diego, and because of this, much of his music is influenced by mainstream and underground West Coast Hip Hop.
In early 2009, Dr. Awkward released his first solo project “Next Gen,” in which Doc proclaims that he is the future of Hip Hop. The EP was hailed as an instant classic, with such hits as “Geekquilibrium” and “Impostor.”
He then performed at Nerdapalooza.. In Summer 2009, Doc finished a follow-up EP titled “Subterranean.” It was named that because of a departure from Awkward’s heavy synth sound and it adopted a more underground feel. This EP was completely discarded because Doc did not feel it evolved in the skills demonstrated on the Next Gen EP.
Since his live act at Nerdapalooza, Doc has performed at after parties for large events such as Florida’s Nerd Invasion, San Diego’s ComicCon,Texas’ Comicpalooza,and Indianaplois' GenCon. He has shared bills with MC Frontalot, MC Lars, MC Chris, Zealous1, YTCracker, and MegaRan.
In April 2010, one year after Next Gen, Dr. Awkward finished and released his first full length album called “Unlimited.” The album was titled as such to convey Doc’s unlimited potential and ability. This album features an amazing fusion of Nerdy Rhymes, Next Gen Hip Hop, and R&B.
After his huge first LP, Doc released his remix project "This is not a Cover", in which he took popular radio songs and added his signature nerdy twist.
In late 2011, he released "The Expansion Pack" which includes the single "Wish I Made That".
On September 7, 2012 (Doc Awk's birthday), he released a new EP entitled "Different" which include the single of the same name.
Early in 2013, he released a concept album titled "A Boy Without a Fairy", which tells the story of Link in Ocarina of Time.
