Opening with a walking bass line, Ridicule is the kind of track that instantly grabs you by the scruff of the neck. Doug’s expressive and soulful vocals float in, delivering lyrics that are rich in poetry. It all builds to a chorus that oozes indie rock sensibilities while still feeling entirely fresh. This really is a stunning debut.

Outside of music, Doug is also a comedian, and can be seen around Boston doing stand up. I think that goes some way to explaining his way with words, but it’s clear that music is his real passion. He’s taught himself multiple instruments and has an ear for what sounds good. I’m excited to hear more from him.
