Doug Burr: O Ye Devastator
Doug Burr hails from Denton, Texas. He sings sweet and low with sincere and heartfelt lyrics that you fall into without abandon. He has a dreamlike and dusky voice similar to Ben Knox Miller of the Low Anthem. He pulls you into his music with the same kind of vocal magic that takes an audience captive in the way that Ray Lamontagne or David Gray entrance theirs. His new album O Ye Devastator is due to be released on May 4th from the record label Spune/Velvet Blue Music.
Listen to "Red Red," which will be on the upcoming album.
Burr 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."
