In 2007, Grammy Nominated record producer and singer/songwriter Doug Yoel relocated to Woodstock and experienced a creative renewal. He began writing and developing a sound that blends organic roots, blues and vintage rock; with classic country heartbreak; and sweetened with bits of soul and reggae. Doug’s songs are aimed to move the spirit, and the body – as are his performances, centered around his uniquely expressive delivery on vocals and guitar.
His 2008 EP ‘Yellow Light / So.. I Want You’ garnered critical attention, an Alternative music feature on iTunes, and a spot on the eMusic singer-songwriter chart. Doug has become increasingly active as concert performer, winning over fans and critics, including national roots zine No Depression, which listed a recent performance on their “Faves” list. Doug’s new compilation ‘..in the dusts of old New York’ was released internationally in November 2010 through Kindred Rhythm/Entertainment One. He now hosts and performs in two regular concert series: the Iridium Songwriter Sessions on Broadway in NYC, and the Emerson Spotlight on Song in Mt. Tremper, NY. Doug's most recent album production, Lucky Peterson's "You Can Always Turn Around" has gone on to receive acclaim and high honors on both sides of the Atlantic.
