Doug got the music bug at age 18 while serving in the US Air Force. Next he spent 4 years in a Los Angeles area pop rock band, but was “just the bass player” and he was not able to express his musical desire to “be different”.
Later, after writing many fun, quirky songs, he joined a Sacramento area alternative rock band. But soon, Doug found the band members were not open to collaboration. Doug decided to leave the band to start his own project.
Moving to Southern Oregon, Doug was bored out of his mind one night at a classic rock jam session. That was the “camel that broke the donkey’s back”. Within 1 year, Doug had completed a collection of 16 original songs at world renowned, multi gold and platinum record producer Sylvia Massy’s Radio Star Studios.
