Doug MacLeod / Press

“MacLeod exudes credibility, passion, and a quiet fire of artistic expression. His labyrinth-like slide/picking hybrid is eclipsed only by his honesty, which is ingrained in every song he sings.”

LIVING BLUES

“Understanding the importance of restraint to the blues, he skirts the predictable with fresh imagery in lyrics and his music is barb-wire sharp.”

DOWNBEAT

“Aside from being one of the finest guitar players in the business, MacLeod really connects with his audience. His sets are more than music. They are "homegrown lessons" in life and love. MacLeod is one of the finest songwriters, storytellers and performers in the blues. In a world intoxicated with electric-everything MacLeod is preserving a lost art... A must for any serious fan of the blues and any soul who needs the healing of the blues.”

SING OUT!

“MacLeod is a talented instrumentalist and an impassioned singer, but what stands out is his well-turned lyrical phrases and intriguing musical nuances.”

LIVING BLUES

“MacLeod identifies with the simplicity and honesty that characterized the country blues artists of the 30's and 40's... a wealth of blues feeling... compelling.”

ALL MUSIC GUIDE

“Doug MacLeod, now there's a man who can really play the blues.”

David 'Honeyboy' Edwards

“One who has lived the life he sings about. Mr. MacLeod uses his unusual style of acoustic guitar playing to accentuate his remarkable story telling so much so that it seems that the guitar is an integral part of the tale.”

ROOTS MUSIC REPORT

“The masterful MacLeod............one of the most talented country bluesmen we've got.”
