Music Monday: Doug Burr

exposing unsigned or lesser known bands to the masses…or to the three people that actually read this. today’s band:

doug burr

local band to: denton texas

riyl: vic chesnutt, bon iver, ray lamontagne

burr resides in the beautiful city of denton, tx, and is by no means a stranger to making music. o ye devastator is his 3rd release with us, which is the proper follow-up to 2007’s much adored, on promenade. between these 2 records burr recorded a project called the shawl, which was a shimmering and heavy laden vision of the psalms. doug has been building a steady fan base through each show, his songs appearing in tv shows, and an ever increasing amount of press. opening for st vincent, yann tiersen, richard buckner, and great lake swimmers has helped as well. he began polishing most of these songs last year while on tour with son volt. doug has explained the theme of the album to be american roots music rendered as sweeping scenes and story lines, antique, revelatory, and futuristic in scope.
