Singer, songwriter and performer. Doug owns and lives on a small cattle ranch (the LIB) in the heart of New Mexico. It is a remote setting where he enjoys spending time with his ranch neighbors and his dog Harley and living each day on the right side of the ground in it's wide open spaces. He has owned the ranch since 1988 and just retired there in 2008 full time. Since that time he has boarded horses and leased pasture to a great neighbor for many years until retirement in 2008. He's now running his own cattle.
Doug loves and respects the land and way of life he is now able to live full time amongst the large ranches and forest lands that surround him. His descriptive, true-to-life, narrative style of writing draws you into his world and passion for ranch life. His neighbors and the beautiful land that surrounds him remain his canvas for the songs he writes about ranches, cowboys, New Mexico's remote settings and landscapes he lives in.
To date he has written several hundred songs and has released two albums, one (NM Ranch Songs) has received some very favorable reviews from several sources. His second album is "Live at The Albuquerque Tavern" and is doing quite well on www.CDBaby.com. In addition he has two more in production "limbo". One is exclusively about New Mexico and the other is an eclectic mix of Western music. You will find his work to be genuine and his performances smooth and sincere.
