Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Doug spent most of his formative years in Oklahoma and Texas and has called 8 states home. He honed his songwriting in the late 1990's while performing in and around Boulder, Colorado. In 2000, he relocated to Nashville to further develop his craft. While in Tennessee, he was nominated for several awards through his work with the acoustic blues duo Hot Foot Delta. Currently based out of Southern California, his music is littered with souvenirs of the places he lived and seen.
Although he predominately writes and performs on acoustic guitar and resonator slide guitar, he also plays harmonica, mandolin, banjo and enough drums and piano to be dangerous. In addition to songwriting, recording and performing, Doug lends his talents as a session guitarist, recording engineer and producer.
