Doug Kearney: Guitarist/Vocalist/Song Writer/Arranger

Born and raised in the heart of Louisiana, Doug picked up his first guitar at the tender age of 10 and by 16 he was playing his first gigs. At 18 he began working in bars, traveling the crawfish circuit, and doing concerts and festivals throughout Louisiana and Texas. Immersed in southern blues, jazz, country, Texas swing, and swamp music Kearney began to develop his own unique style. With influences from Duane Allman and Lowell George he started writing and developed a true passion for slide guitar. After working in the South for 13 years, Doug moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1986. Working the greater Seattle club scene afforded him the musical freedom to explore various creative avenues. This is where his desire for writing original material blossomed. Hence, his unique and soulful style of guitar playing, singing and song-writing evolved. Most recognize Kearney by his funky rhythm-based blues, sultry slide guitar and clean cutting-edge sound.
