Doug Stokes / Bio

I'm proud to be from Muscle Shoals, AL, a rural river town at the crossroads of folk, country, and rhythm and blues. It's banks are the birthplace of the likes of Helen Keller, W.C. Handy -Father of The Blues, and Sam Phillips - Father of Rock-N-Roll. For decades the area has been an underground hot-house of musical talent - The Drive-by Truckers, The Civil Wars, and Jason Isabelle, and Alabama Shakes to name a few more recent. In 1998, I got my start as a demo singer at Rick Hall's Fame studios. My songwriting savvy soon snagged my first exclusive publishing deal, and with that - adoption into the Muscle Shoals hit music tradition.
These days I'm an independent, DIY, part-time musician. I write, co-write, produce custom projects, and sing demos. I'm making new music with my friend Matt Johnson. We call it simply Johnson & Stokes. Online at www.JohnsonandStokes.com, as well as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Mp3, etc. I'm also currently lead singer for country group Shenandoah. www.shenandoahband.com.
Today, I live in Columbia, TN, where I enjoy the small-town life and loving on my lady and babies.
