Winner of the 2014 Blues Music Awards 'Best Acoustic Artist' and 'Best Acoustic Album', Doug MacLeod is a unique, powerful guitarist with a rich and soulful voice, singing original songs based on his own life and experiences. This is 'Genuine Original Acoustic Music' at its very best.
In live performance, Doug MacLeod assures his audience 'This song is going to go exactly like this.' It's presented just for them, not a repeat of any performance he's ever given or will ever give. He records the same way: each of his original songs, offered with a fresh voice.
Eleven new MacLeod originals reflecting and paying tribute to some of his diverse musical influences; Louis Jordan, Wes Montgomery, Jerry Reed, Tony Joe White, John Lee Hooker, and even a little Duke Ellington.
A richly detailed recording by Grammy-winning engineer Keith Johnson, done at Skywalker Sound in Marin County, CA.
Yes, he's a blues guy, but he's really a singer/songwriter/storyteller and serious guitarist. One of the few in the modern genre doing all original material and traveling the country like a troubadour. Just Doug, headed down the road in his Honda, baseball on the radio, Siri by his side and a trunk full of music!

Just got this in the mail today. Brings back memories of seeing Doug & Mike playing electric blues at Reuben's in Redondo Beach every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights. Miss seeing them live. Ain't it Rough! So good to hear them play together again on some old tunes and some new ones. Still listening to it. Very clean recording. Sounds like they're playing in my livingroom. All songs written from the life and heart and mind of Doug.
Although this latest offering by Mr. Dubb is one of his best, seeing him perform them all live at his cd release concert/party was truly AMAZING. Go see him live any way you can and you'll find it incredible that his National Resinator can do so much. Doug MacLeod is truly a national treasure, just ask Europeans who get blues, real blues.
Doug can fill a stage with just his guitar, so I was worried that the accompanying instruments would detract from his sound. Not so. The drums and bass were an excellent compliment to his music. Awesome album (again) - cant wait till he's back in the northwest.
