2002-2008: History, Girl Next Door, One Girl Revolution & SuperGirl

What started out as simply a campfire song between strangers soon turned into a musical connection in the form of the Columbus, OH-based alternative pop/rock group Saving Jane. It was at this bonfire that vocalist Marti Dodson (then a junior at Ohio State University) and rhythm guitarist Pat Buzzard first met and subsequently became friends. The pair began writing songs together and when the time came to record their work, local drummer Dak Goodman was recruited to help. The trio found something in each other, and the decision was made to form an actual band. Booking their first show, they took the name Saving Jane from a cartoon Dodson had been doodling one late night at the studio. As the band slowly began making a name for itself around Columbus, an additional lead guitarist, Kris Misevski, and a borrowed bass player from Goodman's cover band rounded out the group. About a year later, tensions within the band lead to the departure of their borrowed bassist, and Jeremy Martin replaced him in 2002. Two years later, as Saving Jane found their style shifting more from acoustic roots to alternative rock, their manager insisted that Dodson's be emphasized over the rest of the band; these changes eventually led to the exit of their lead guitarist. In February 2006, Mike Ungar stepped down from Saving Jane for family reasons, and Brandon Hagan joined the band as a replacement, while keyboardist Joe Cochran completed the lineup. Also as of 2008, Jeremy Martin is no longer with the band. The new bassist is Eric Flores.

Saving Jane's full-length debut, Girl Next Door, was issued in October 2005 on Toucan Cove, and the title track found the band getting major radio air play of the single of the same name. Gaining the attention of major record labels, Republic/Universal Records signed them and they made their debut on the Billboard charts. The single with the same title, "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 single "Come Down to Me" was released in late August and 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

On August 7, 2007, Saving Jane's follow up album to Girl Next Door was released with the title One Girl Revolution. A single with the same title debuted in the summer of 2007. The album, One Girl Revolution was release in 2007, with a re-release version with a new song, "SuperGirl" in the album, SuperGirl in 2008.
