About Doug Balmain
The now Wyoming-based, Americana singer/songwriter embraces many styles of roots music which come together to create a style and sound that fuses alt-country, rock, and blues. Balmain describes his work by saying, “The music I write is grounded in real life and personal experience which gives it a very honest and relatable quality. My main focus is creating music that serves each individual song as its own, unique entity and helps to tell its story in the most effective way possible. That is the heart of Americana music. Regardless of the genre you take up, Americana music is about story-telling; it's music that speaks of life, love, struggles, triumphs...life the way it is. Miles Davis boiled all that down by simply stating, ‘Good music is good no matter what kind of music it is.’”
Doug Balmain’s debut album "Troubled Mind" was released in April of 2013. Since its release he has formed a new band and plans to tour both nationally and internationally behind the album.
