July 7, 2012
Gregory Douglass is an internationally renowned independent musician with eight critically acclaimed albums and a multitude of digital singles and music videos. His recent spotlight on NPR’s “Morning Edition” has coined him “one of New England’s best-kept secrets.” Douglass has sold over 75,000 songs digitally on his own and his videos have amounted to over 600,000 views on Youtube alone. His music videos have charted numerous times on MTV Network’s LOGO TV and his newest single “Naysayer” is slated to air on MTV’s upcoming “World Of Jenks” series. Douglass was a finalist in the 2011 Mountain Stage NewSong Competition and won Yobi.tv’s “New Stage” competition, an original web series starring Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
Douglass’ evocative, alternative sound “channels everyone from Stevie Wonder to Fiona Apple in a way that’s terrifyingly mature for someone so young” according to Instinct Magazine. Douglass has shared the stage with artists like They Might Be Giants, Shawn Colvin, The Weepies, Jason Mraz, Regina Spektor and Margaret Cho. Douglass’ 2009 release BATTLER features duets with friends and fellow Vermonters Grace Potter (Grace Potter and The Nocturnals/ Hollywood Records) and Anais Mitchell (Righteous Babe Records) and he is currently touring in support of his latest release, LUCID, a dream-themed concept album.

Local venues have included the North Woods Stewardship Center, The Music Box, Goodrich Memorial Library, the Haskell Opera House, Catamount Arts, Turner’s Café at the Woodknot Bookshop, Brenda’s Home style Cooking, and St. Johnsbury First Night. She has also provided music for Hospice patients and their families through North Country Hospital and Bel Aire nursing home. Emily has appeared on the CBS/WCAX TV Morning Music Showcase and Tim Kavanaugh’s Late Night Saturday show.
