Doug

Doug grew up in the Suburbs of CT, but it was in the woods of CT, that he met his strongest influences… music and the joys of camping, hunting and fishing.
It was during the long road trips to their favorite camp grounds, lakes and streams, that the the sounds of Charlie Daniels, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin cranked through the Jenson speakers in his brothers ’65 Ford Falcon with rusted out floor boards. Since then bands like Counting Crows, Oasis, Verticle Horizon, Switch Foot and Train have taken their place but not entirely.
Jump ahead 10 years… College, where he “managed” a band… ie: booked and promoted their shows. Happy to be a part of the music scene, he still wanted to get out from behind the stage to try singing a few songs of his own. Europe provided that opportunity.
More solo acoustic and band shows follow ’til this day. Now Doug is on his 4th CD, records with more of a country influence, and shares his passion for singing and songwriting with a love of the outdoors a cabin lifestyle, fishing and bow hunting.
Biggest Influences today? Train, Gavin DeGraw, Brad Paisley, Oasis, Keith Urban’s earlier stuff, Toby, Counting Crows and Cold Play.
