“Oh Douglass...how I love thee....I love to read and every one of your songs is like a 3 minute audio book. You are a true storyteller/songwriter/singer and one of the coolest people I know.”
"Doug is the best songwriter in Charlotte, folks. I hate his guts, but he's the best."
“I wanna say thank you for advocating real American music with your storytelling songwriter skills. You were a delight and we will see very much more of yall in the future. If you're a fan of genuine story telling do check out Douglass Thompson... Keep doing your thing and inspire ole hayseeds like me.”
“I like listening to music that makes me look up from what I'm doing every few minutes and say "Oh damn....that's a good line!" If you like that feeling too, you need to check out Douglass Thompson. ”
"it's hard as songwriters to come up with a "totally original" idea,however;with Peckinpah and Ford you managed to do that,loved the line,"demons around the folding chair"...i usually hate strings, but it worked on this song!"
"Doug! I really, really like your stuff. Smart, fireside-chatty, enviable baritone. Any argument we'd have over great songwriters would be a short conversation!"
"I'm loving the stuff you are putting out there... great work Doug. Alternative, cool, and folk/Americana with soul..."
"...'American' music in the best sense of the word...Doug is a clever,gracious,and engaging performer in the john prine/steve goodman vein"
"'Scab Angels' is such a great song it grabbed me right away and held on I also am very fond of 'Man in the Moon'. You sir are the real thing- stripped down, unpretensious, and honest wordplay of the highest order... "
