Doug's rich voice and strong hooks keep getting him noticed by music fans and
filmmakers from coast to coast. With two songs off the new CD getting
picked up by Major Motion Pictures, he’s off to a pretty good start…

                 

People say this singer/songwriter from Connecticut is a cross between the new country sound of Zac Brown Band and bands like The Fray and Train. Doug grew up in the Suburbs of New York City, but it was in the woods of CT that he met his strongest influences...  music and a love of the outdoors. It was during long road trips to their favorite camping, hunting and fishing spots that some of rock and country’s biggest artists cranked through the speakers of their '65 Ford Falcon. 

His affection for the lap steel and slide guitar on these records found its way into a number of the songs on his latest release from Nashville. It was recorded live in the studio over a period of 3 days last summer, with some of Country Music’s most seasoned pros....
