Gregory Douglass' evocative, alternative sound blends "Rufus Wainwright´s opulent musicality and Justin Timberlake´s accessible soulfulness," according to OUT Magazine. A Vermont native and Los Angeles transplant, Douglass has been coined "One of New England's best-kept secrets," by NPR’s Morning Edition and has shared the stage with the likes of Jason Mraz, Regina Spektor, They Might Be Giants, Shawn Colvin, and The Weepies to name a few.
Douglass has paved his own way to his successful independent career having released nine studio albums and several singles and EPs, and is one of the top independent artists on Pandora radio today. Douglass has sold 100,000+ songs digitally on his own, his videos have amounted to nearly one million views on YouTube alone, and his music videos have charted numerous times on MTV Network's LOGO TV. Douglass’ work ethic becomes apparent based on these factors alone, not to mention the passion and finesse he puts into his live performances and his recorded works.
In addition to his on-stage collaborations, Douglass has recorded with fellow Vermonters Grace Potter and Anaïs Mitchell among others. His newest project, My Hero, The Enemy, is his most prolific work to date with writing born after the emotional collapse of 15 years as a touring artist. Realizing what he once called a “fierce independence,” Douglass recognized as isolating and self-limiting choices. Amid this epiphany, Douglass found a glimmer of hope in new collaborations and some of his best writing yet to propel his music yet another step further in the world.
