Doug Folkins / Bio

Doug Folkins is a Celtic singer/songwriter and country songwriter from Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada.

In 2012, Doug got his first cut with “I Don’t Want To Love You Like That” (co-written with Larry Wayne Clark), which was released as a single to Canadian Radio by Rick Stavely. Over 40 stations played the song regularly across Canada.

Doug regularly co-writes with Nashville hit writers Dan Demay, Steve Dean, Wil Nance, Stephen Allen Davis, Glen Mitchell and Scott Harter among others. Legendary songsmith, Larry Wayne Clark has been Doug’s biggest influence on the Canadian songwriting scene as a mentor and regular co-writer.

In 2012, two of Doug’s songs have been signed to publishing deals in Nashville.

Much of Doug’s catalog of over 20 fully produced demos is regularly pitched by Maggie Ross at Brainchild Music.

Doug’s publishing is self-administered under his company, Fenwick Music.

“Ceilidh” (pronounced “Kay-Lee”) is Folkins’ 6th CD.  “This disk is a collection of some of my favorite Celtic songs from the East Coast, Ireland and Scotland plus a few of my originals” says Folkins.  

Folkins has spent the last 13 years, writing, playing and producing his own material. Doug is able to blend traditional Celtic influences, Country twang and Pop Jangle to create a fresh sound that is as comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans. He is a serious musician who takes time to whittle down each song to the most essential elements necessary to make melodic and emotional connections between his songs and the listeners.
