The Gary Douglas Band (from the album Deep in the Water available as a self-release)
Gary Douglas sings of life on the road (‘I ain’t making any money that don’t bother me none honey ‘cause I love doin’ what I do’) the tune (“Oh My Oh My”) the tale of a troubadour, the show, the audience, payments for the time on stage. While the goal seems simplistic, the man fronting The Gary Douglas Band has spent a lifetime championing the small victories, with Gary Douglas the lawyer named a member of the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame. Defending victims provides background for the stories in Deep in the Water, the latest release from The Gary Douglas Band, the rock’n’roll backing the DIY tales of survival against strife.
The Gary Douglas Band are the observers for the way of life on the streets in “Nothing Ever Goes as Planned” and the lovers beyond the last word in “Say What You Want to Say” as everyone holds on tight when hurdles and obstacles are faced in the life of the blue-collar worker barreling down “River Road”. Deep in the Waterputs its characters in the headlines from daily news, the title track looking at the pollution clouding our oceans, finger pointing as “Deep in the Water” as earth’s streams and rivers blend with human blood and tears. While topics take a stand, The Gary Douglas Band make sure the blood pumping in their veins takes time out from righteous rock’n’roll statements to put their hearts on sleeves. Deep in the Watersails with a late-night edge to the melody coursing underneath “Losing You” and advises determination in the fight for justice as it admits seeing the light of hope from a distance in “Million Miles Away”. The Gary Douglas Band introduce “Wild Child’ on a snaking rhythm line to match the out-of-control choices of the lady in the song as a slinky Blues groove hammers out a path for “Devil in Her Soul” and Deep in the Waterhas Saturday night in its eyes, offering a hand asking “Do You Wanna Go”.
