Welcome to my web site

This place is a little neglected sometimes but is still the best place to find music, videos and information about what I do.

The Summer Festival Season is about to begin and I'm excited to bring my winters' worth of sitting in a basement creating music to you. My setup has changed, In addition to the loop pedal I'm now using a KORG Wavedrum and some really amazing apps on my iPad in the show. The result is a lot more dance-able but still prone to wild swings into vocal improv craziness.

Have a look around, there's lots to see. And please consider joining me at one of the festivals I'm appearing at this summer. You will find the list on the SHOWS page.

New Stickers are printed and shipping

Another summer on the road means another batch of amazing stickers from Schickworks Signs and Stitches (schickworks.com) in Williams Lake.

Like last year, these stickers are high quality printed vinyl in two options. There is the four inch round "Doug rhymes with Hug" depicted to the right as well as the four inch square "Doug The Hug" painting by the emmensely talented and amazing T-rav the Transformer (T-rav on Facebook).

Find me at a music festival to get yours.

You can become a Patron of the Arts

I love what I do and I see the positive effects of music and art. I am on a journey to a destination unknown to me. I only know that it's the journey that I am meant to be on. I am working as hard as I can to make music my fulltime reality.

In the winter I am happy to put down some roots and get a job when shows are less frequent but in the summer I'm on the road, living in my trusty van 'Cara Nimbus', sharing music and love with communities around BC.

If that sounds like something you want to support please consider a donation. Any amount is welcomed and appreciated.

Doug The Hug!

In February while I was in Prince George to play at the Canada Winter Games I dropped in at CFUR (cfur.ca) and recorded a session with Eric and Fraser. This is the result.
