Amazing show. Doug’s delivery of original, sincere songs connects with the audience unlike any other act I’ve ever seen. Having been mentored by blues legends in the 1960s, Doug is one of the last living links to the Blues pioneers. And you feel that soul when you are in his presence. How good is he? My wife and I flew in from Colorado to see him. And we will travel again to see Doug.

Loved every second of the show. What a great storyteller and a down to earth human being. We were all lined up outside the lounge, waiting for the doors to open, and he pulls up, gets out of the car, and stands in the line with us. He talked to anybody as long as they wanted to talk. He signed anything anybody wanted him to sign. took pictures of anybody who wanted pictures , and looked you in the eye like you were the only important person in the room at that moment. If he ever makes it back to my part of the world, I guarantee I’ll go see him again.

About Doug MacLeod

"Like all great blues men, MacLeod lives his music, and the songs are not just on the tips of his fingers and tongue, they are one with his being.” - Blues Music Magazine

"One of the great blues artists......period!" - Jorma Kaukonen.

"Doug MacLeod is one of the last and most iconic songwriters
in blues that the contemporary scene can still offer."-Macalle Blues-Italy

MacLeod is known for his superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals, wit, and unforgettable live performances. At the heart of a Doug MacLeod performance is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters-from the faceless to the legendary-to strikingly real life.

Doug is a multiple Blues Music Award winner, including the 2023 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Artist Of The Year and the 2018 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Album Of The Year ‘Break The Chain’. .

In March of 2022 he co-authored with Debra Schiff the blues murder mystery book MURDER AT THE CROSSROADS.

In April of 2022 A SOUL TO CLAIM produced by Jim Gaines was released.

Doug is an international touring artist who writes and sings original songs that are based on his own life and experiences. He learned from the old masters and carries forward a valuable tradition.

As a youth, Doug overcame abuse and a crippling stutter by turning to music. After picking up a guitar, and singing - he found his voice.

MacLeod's playing landed him sideman gigs with George 'Harmonica' Smith, Big Joe Turner, Pee Wee Crayton, Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson, Lowell Fulson, and Big Mama Thornton. Over 30 years, 22 studio albums, several live records, compilations, a blues guitar instructional DVD, and a live performance DVD, MacLeod has consistently earned raves. His songs have been covered by many artists including Albert King, Albert Collins, Joe Louis Walker and Eva Cassidy. MacLeod's songs have been featured in many TV movies and the hit show In the Heat of the Night. August Wilson requested his soulful slide guitar playing in the Los Angeles opening of "Gem of the Ocean”.

From 1999 to 2004 Doug hosted Nothin' But The Blues, a very popular weekend blues show on Los Angeles' KLON-KKJZ. He has also been the voice for The Blues Showcase on Continental Airlines. For ten years he penned "Doug's Back Porch," a regular feature column in Blues Revue Magazine in which he shared his humorous and insightful stories with thousands of readers. He is one of the four featured artists in the movie “Resonate: A Guitar Story”, the feature documentary on the making of National Guitars.

Like the old masters who taught him, MacLeod's music expresses life and times through an intangible, elusive quality that may simply be a keen sense of what matters most. Doug’s music, stories, and philosophy provide a healing that has helped others overcome the hardships of their lives.

Doug says the most important lessons he learned as a young musician came from Ernest Banks a one-eyed country bluesman from Toano, VA.
"Never play a note you don't believe” and "Never write or sing about what you don't know about.”

As Blues Hall Of Fame artist Pee Wee Crayton's widow Esther once told Doug, "You have a message and you'll send that message mainly to the people who don't go to church." Amen.
