Doug Schmude, with the ins and outs about the album Burn These Pages.
Broadcast Saturday January 19, (K)ansas (C)ity (O)nline (R)adio http://www.kconlineradio.com (6PM CT) Monday January 14 , Radio Duivenstraat http://www.radio.duivenstraat.net (19:00 CET),
A string of license plates from the likes of Louisiana, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, Connecticut, Colorado, Arizona and California hang above the guitars in Doug Schmude’s recording studio. A firm believer in the principle that life is as much about what happens as where you’re standing when it does, Doug’s music reflects the perspective that living in 8 different states imparts upon a person. His songs contain vividly drawn characters from all walks of life and stories from ever changing viewpoints. His latest record, Burn These Pages, was released independently on his own label (Lost Hubcap) and was self-produced. The songs all start with a foundation of Roots Americana and mix in equal parts rock, blues, indie rock and a dash of grunge. The result is a modern Americana sound that would appeal to fans of Jason Isbell, Ryan Bingham, John Mellencamp and Steve Earle. Doug plays the majority of the acoustic & electric guitars, bass, mandolin, lap steel guitar, Dobro and even drums on a few tracks. The album features a guest appearance by Oklahoma Singer Songwriter Carter Sampson.
