NEW ALBUM KEEPIN' FAITH OUT NOW
"Gary Douglas may have strayed a bit off the musician's path for a while, picking up a law degree along the way, but he is a rock n roller through and through- and don't you forget it...this gives the song ["Out On The Highway"] a raw edge, filled to bursting with powerhouse vocals, from both Douglas and his backup singers. Interchanging solos on guitar and keys add a dash of spontaneity, well received by the swaying, cheering crowd. For being relatively new to the game, Douglas seems perfectly at ease and in command front and center."
KEEPIN' FAITH--a diverse mix of classic rock, Americana, country and blues--was released October 9 on iTunes. THE GARY DOUGLAS BAND--fronted by New York City-based vocalist, songwriter and guitar player GARY DOUGLAS, guitarist Jeremy Goldsmith, keyboardist Scott Chasolen, bassist Dan Asher, drummer Stefano Baldasseroni, horn player Nick Biello and backup vocalists Yula Beeri and Clara Lofaro--worked in-studio with producer Anthony Resta (Elton John, Needtobreathe, Collective Soul, Guster, Perry Farrell, Nuno Bettencourt, Shawn Mullins, Sara Evans). The first single "To Be With You," "Faith (Renewed)" and other cuts off the album have been added to over 20 U.S. radio stations (list of stations here), with more adds coming in each week.
KEEPIN' FAITH taps into the energy that empowered Springsteen, Seger and other classic rockers, a testament to its wide appeal at radio. Every shred of feeling throughout KEEPIN' FAITH comes straight from the liberated heart of GARY DOUGLAS. Check out the urgency of "My Desire," the restless summons to seek a better life "Out on the Highway," the explosive anger of "Lord I Try," the screaming release of "Stop Bringing Me Down," and the broken romance of "Goodbye Marie."
The "Out On The Highway" video release coincides with a pair of New York City performances this month. Tonight (1/13), THE GARY DOUGLAS BAND will join Willie Nile, Dramarama, The Weeklings and Joe D'Urso & Stone Caravan for the Light Of Day Foundation benefit concert at The Cutting Room. The Light of Day Foundation, Inc. is renowned worldwide for utilizing the power of music to raise money and awareness to defeat Parkinson's disease and related illnesses such as PSP and ALS within our lifetime. Tickets to the January 13 Light Of Day concert are available here. The band will also headline a show at The Bowery Electric on Saturday, January 23; tickets are on-sale now here.
