About Mike Doughty
Genres:
Alternative, Indie, Singer/songwriter, Folk
Band Members:
Doughty is touring with the largest band he's ever toured with: a cello/bass player drums, another guitar player, an organ player, and a backing vocalist--six people on stage. The show consists of basically live remixing. Using hand gestures, Doughty improvises changes in what the musicians in the band are doing--stopping, starting, getting louder or quieter, changing their parts, repeating their parts. The songs are Soul Coughing songs and Doughty solo songs, but none are ever performed the same way twice., It's a kind of simplified version of something Doughty saw John Zorn doing with avant-garde jazz in the 1990s, but adapted to be more along the lines of a dance music or hip-hop producer mixing tracks--bringing in the drums, dropping them out, juggling the musicians like samples.

Mike Doughty used to be Soul Coughing guy, and now he's just some guy.

His new album, produced by Good Goose, is now available. It's called THE HEART WATCHES WHILE THE ...

Mike’s touring band was solid. I finally got him to sign my copy of his book “Book Of Drugs”

Fantastic show and great venue. Doughty still has it! The crowd was fantastic and a bunch of nice and enthusiastic fans. Not too many cell phones and minimal background chatter. Wheatus was fantastic!!!! My first introduction to this multi-faceted and very talented band. (I have a crush on the guitarist now).

Great show! Mike is a true performer. Lots of improv and banter on stage. Wheatus did a great job backing him up. 10/10 would go again tonight if I could.

This was only the second time I’ve seen M. Doughty, and the other was a living room show, so the ambiance was of course quite different. I loved Mike’s direction of the band during each song, like full-size mixing in real-time. Great energy, solid performances, just the right amount of banter throughout the show, good sense of humor and presence. Good stuff!

It was awesome. Scrap and the cello were a nice touch. Throughly enjoyed see Mike stripped down both in music and setting!
