Saving Jane is a band from Columbus, Ohiomarker who are most famous for their hit song "Girl Next Door". The band consists of Marti Dodson, Pat Buzzard, Dak Goodman, Brandon Hagan, and Eric Flores.

History

Saving Jane originally began when Dodson and Buzzard worked together in music. They contacted a drummer, Dak Goodman, to help them record a song. After that, they decided to start a band by borrowing a bass player from another band and by booking a few shows. Due to some issues between the bassist and drummer, they decided against the borrowed bassist. Joe Cochran was introduced to the band by a mutual friend, but according to the band's MySpace profile, Joe is no longer with the band as of early 2007. In February 2006, Mike Ungar stepped down from Saving Jane for family reasons, and Brandon Hagan joined the band as a replacement. Also as of 2008, Jeremy Martin is no longer with the band. The new bassist is Eric Flores.

Saving Jane's debut album, entitled Girl Next Door, was released in October, 2005. After major radio play of the single of the same name, Universal Records picked them up. The album was re-released with 2 new tracks in April, 2006.

On August 7, 2007, Saving Jane's follow up album to Girl Next Door is set to be released with the title One Girl Revolution. A single with the same title is slated for a summer 2007 release.

"Girl Next Door"

The single, "Girl Next Door", peaked at #31 on the Billboard Hot 100. The video debuted on MTV's Total Request Live's countdown on April 24, 2006 at #9. The song has been featured on such albums as Now That's What I Call Music 22 and Kidz Bop 10. Their second single, "Happy", was released in the mid-summer, and did not appear on any charts. The album's third single, "Come Down to Me" was released in late August. The re-release went on to sell over 100,000 copies.

In 2006, country singer Julie Roberts recorded a version of "Girl Next Door" which was released on her album Men and Mascara. (Saving Jane had released their own country remix of the song the previous winter, which was available on iTunes and got exposure on CMT and CMT.com.)
