Doug grew up in southern California in a musical family from his dad’s side. All of those relatives, Grandpa, Grandma, Aunts and Uncles were from Texas and Oklahoma and could play several stringed instruments as well as piano. There was always a guitar around the house and his dad would play cowboy and country tunes many evenings after he got home from work. Despite his older brother getting guitar lessons, which didn’t take, Doug found he could figure out songs by ear, so that’s how he learned to play. When his grandma saw he was interested in playing the fiddle she gave him her fiddle and said, “go out behind the barn and play until it sounds like music”.
Beyond the few garage bands, plus a couple of serious bands in High School, Doug decided music was what he wanted to do in life. After high school he moved to the pacific northwest and was in several working bands. Later in life he found himself playing guitar and bass in bands that would travel to western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and all across the USA.
But married life came along and so did his 3 sons, so eventually full-time music had to be set aside. But all along the way he has continued to play in many various working bands and church groups. Today, many years later, he continues to balance being a business owner and working musician, with the emphasis on “when’s the next gig!”
